Mero, instead of arrows maybe a button that says "Answer" or "Submit" or whatever?
I'd also put the question above the choices, for a better visual flow.

Training by using numbers as "titles" should work really well, great idea!
(I could see a more fleshed out version including pictures/illustrations as well as the text and numbers. Or maybe an adventure game styled after those old scrolling path games... you know them? Draw a path on a long piece of paper, roll it up and choose directions along the way... some are dead ends, some keep going. That thing? Yeah... a game like that. Simple, fun and you can have the first pass have all the right choices highlighted or something. Maybe add music. And there should be bacon.)
(Sorry, I tangent.:D)

Anyway, it does looks like an effective tool.
Huzzah!

I’m a boss. (cue the video!!)

I know this, now, because yesterday a man came to me with his hat in his hands asking me to pay him more money for the same work. In the moment I simply reacted but, in hindsight, I recall my own begging for more money moments and what my bosses said to me. Occasionally they paid me more, but they made it a struggle. They made me do something, usually a project, that moved the entire work product forward a step. Made it better. Made me give more, to get more.

I could have easily paid him $1,000 in a “bonus” for something. But that’s not what he wanted and it would have only insulted him.

He’s getting married, you see. And his fiancé doesn’t make but $30,000 and he needs to bring home more money to pay for his fiancé’s $5,000 engagement ring. For the record, ladies and gentlemen, this is the wrong thing to say to your boss. I don’t hold it against him, and it didn’t influence me in any way, but I’m not like most bosses. They’re human and will make some value judgments about you if you tell them your personal business. I don’t, because to me it’s all about ones and zeroes.

I told him he needed to help me convince the client to increase his labor category. We needed to show how much more he did so that they could make the argument for more funds, which they will give us and we will give him. That would be one way to increase his income. Another way would be for him to help me out on some of my projects and if they are well-received I can make an argument for him to get a bigger cut of the percentage we make on his labor. So there’s two ways.

The third way was the one I left with and the one I hope he takes – find a new job. Because, you’re help desk bro. You’re not supposed to do this for five years. You’re not supposed to loiter at the entry level jobs; that’s for people who can’t move up. That’s for the drunks and the losers and the people who call out sick all the time. They get so good at their entry-level work but, at the same time, they are so bad at employment. A sort of balance is created in that churn – good enough to keep around, but too irresponsible to give real work to. We’ll see what comes out of that.

In other news, I got into it with Luc because he thinks I’m racist. This bothers me. I think we’ve decided on a better, more accurate and fair term – bigot. It’s not a word I’m proud of but, it’s true and as such I’ll own it – I’m bigoted against cultures I deem inferior. I reserve the right to look at the behaviors and beliefs of a particular social, ethnic, or age group and make disparaging and insulting remarks about them. If I were careful in my comments I could come across as critiquing them and escape this awful “bigot” label. But, I’m not careful online, either out of carelessness or honesty. Besides, I don’t care if Luc thinks I’m bigoted – he should think I am because it’s true. I care if thinks I’m a good person. And he’s said as much (and that it is deep down inside), so I’ll let him live with that dissonance – you think a bigot can be a good person. So, maybe bigotry isn’t so bad, after all? Or maybe I’m not a good person and you shouldn’t be friends with me. Your pick. I owned the label, you own the relationship.

I love American culture. I especially love how we break everything that comes into us. Catholics in America use birth control. Dude, these people are willing to risk the wrath of god, the pending doom of hell, and being at odds with the pope to do what they think is right. And America is the place that lets them do it. And when the Pope tries to push us around about it, we tell him we’re thinking of making a new religion. Because we’re fucking awesome!

I love American culture. When the Muslims come over and want to continue treating their women like shit, we say “No, motherfucker, she’s a human being with rights here.” And we win! She’s uplifted and treated fairly. She’s allowed to learn how to drive, perhaps for the first time in her life, because of America and American culture, and our BIGOTRY towards INFERIOER cultures like those found in the middle east. Of course we accept the parts of their culture that are valid, but we also reject the parts which are not. Sometimes in insulting fashion because their beliefs are just that far away from respectable.

I love human nature! Why is bilingualism so valuable, when so many people from Spanish-speaking countries come here? Shouldn’t we have bilingualism everywhere? Aren’t there enough second-generation Spanish speakers? Well, no! And that would be obvious if you understood human nature and the irrelevance of non-American culture in America. Most humans are not going to go through the extra work of teaching their children a second language, even if they themselves speak it. It’s hard work and humans are busy, so, the second and third generations are just dropping the language. So the only people who speak Spanish well are the ones who come over, and they may not speak English well. Their children get a mix, and English absorbs some Spanish words thus improving its ability to communicate, while the children of these children only learn English. I love American culture!!!

But, this issue came up because of the American Indians, and I’ll admit that I didn’t know things about their culture. I was basing my views on the fact that there was a fight between the culture that came in and the culture that was here and the culture that came in won, thus proving its dominance and superiority. I didn’t know that a plague had wiped out most native Americans before the fight, so it wasn’t a fair fight. But, nature doesn’t care about fair fights. Neither does America, nor me, for that matter. Nature, and we, care only about truths. It was true that the people in America before the Europeans could not withstand whatever virus killed them, and that the Europeans could. Nuff said, and we have the best people on Earth in this country now, because those who can adapt survived.

I discussed some of this with the girlfriend who said little but smiled and nodded much. When I got to the part about white people becoming a minority, she pointed out that it wasn’t an accurate comparison. “No single group of minorities is going to ever be as plentiful as white people, in America.” As such, they will have to fight and compete with one another and we get back to that same, beautiful, American culture of “Get yours, fuck the other guy.” I love this about humans and I love how close American culture tracks to human behavior. It’s something to trust in. Something to believe in. It’s something to be proud of – only through constant strife can we ever galvanize the human species into something slightly better than a monkey with opposable digits. And of all the people in the world, I believe that Americans, born and raised from cradle to grave Americans, are the best culture and examples of humanity this world has to offer. Not perfect, we have work to do, but the best this world has to offer all the same.

I feel the need to hum America the Beautiful.

I asked you how you felt about the worfs bigoted or prejudiced, you said you were OK with bigoted..

But you see,, this stems from you having a definition of racist that doesn't gel with reality.

Racism isn't just about discrimination based on skin colour, it's about discrimination based on culture and ethnicity too

People are complex. and yes you can be a racist but still have redeeming qualities, and people who like you can hope that you'll grow out of the racism and bigotry

It's not about enforcement of bigotry, its about equal enforcement of law to everyone.

I really don't feel a need to respond to the puerile nonsense in the last two paragraphs.
but let me come back to this...

" you think a bigot can be a good person. So, maybe bigotry isn’t so bad, after all? Or maybe I’m not a good person and you shouldn’t be friends with me. Your pick. I owned the label, you own the relationship."

No, your bigotry is ugly and vile, and you need to move beyond it to grow as a person.

I've seen sides of you in the past that are decent, but you seem to want to reduce things to some adolescent comic book black and white bullshit.

Why is that?

Cathiee McMillan 05-22-2012 08:01 PM

Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot", a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance or animosity toward members of a group. Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, nationality, region, language, religious or spiritual belief, personal habits, political alignment, age, economic status or disability

Think many fall into anyone of these at one point or time.

Look... you came in bleating that you'd said the same as I did, and got blasted for it, when you didn't say the same thing.

You called the class discrimination of the Indian caste system financial racism, which it patently isn't.

Financial racism is as you've shown a term in reference to the financial disparity caused by racism.

The financial disparity in the caste system isn't a result of racism,that was what you got blasted over.

You misused the term in that thread, so you did in fact pull crap about "financial racism". Capice?

You know exactly the sort of stuff Mero's going to say in here. It's his thread, in a section called "Dear Diary" as has been pointed out several times already. If you don't like Mero, don't read his thread. I should think this is fairly self-explanatory.

Coming in here and making random disparaging remarks isn't really how I picture you, Bard.

Coming in here and making random disparaging remarks isn't really how I picture you, Bard.

If you've followed along, then you know that I have engaged Mero quite deeply at times, challenging him, asking for more comprehensive engagement, etc., for years. Then sometimes I just poke at him. Sometimes he engages, sometimes he just pokes back.

It's a circle-of-life kinda thing ;)

And as I believe it has been said by others, just because this is called "Dear Diary" doesn't make it some sort of sacrosanct personal blog. If Mero doesn't want comments, then he should get his own blog and disallow comments. This is a forum, and we're all open to post as we like.

Those who defend him against disparaging remarks do not hold him in contempt as I do. Further, I act the gadfly to him because I find it fascinating that so much wrong-headedness and beyond-the-pale arrogance could actually fit within a human skin without bursting like an overripe melon.

Even more fascinating is that tomes of reasoned and documented posts by myself and others which speak contrarily to his points have no effect whatsoever - which tells me he doesn't participate here to engage and discuss as much as to pontificate at us in an effort to support his rather warped view of the world. We're like a carbon sharpener to his blade, and he uses our negative responses to simply reinforce his belief that he is right in all things.

So occasionally I just poke. I don't like that this has lowered your opinion of me. Knowing that may affect my approach from here on out. I'll consider it.

But I do find it tiresome when people try to set some sort of rules about participating in forums that don't actually exist. This isn't his private space, where we all have to either remain silent or nod in agreement.

Hope that makes my position understood.

Actually I like Mero's posts.
If you actually read between the lines I don't see him as much as a dickhead as he makes himself out to be.
He sometimes has very interesting and thoughtful posts about himself and his life.

Yes i know its a forum and it goes to my point that we are all have ego's that we want to show off what we know or what we think.

We all crow about what we have done or are doing

Has anyone told you to stop liking his posts?

If not, I don't see the problem.

No argument there. Does that imply I have to like what everyone "shows off"?

If not, then I don't see the problem.

It's not his fault. I sneak into his room at night and read him my posts, before I post them. This sets him up to already be thinking of nasty responses and also to look for the post.

It's all my fault. I'm sorry I make Bard bad.

Girlfriend says the same thing. Tells me I wish people would think I'm an asshole but I'm not at all.

I usually end that conversation by spanking her.
