However, I think that someone repeatedly lying, violating trust, or attempting to manipulate you is dehumanizing behaviour, you've become a tool, no longer a person. Behaviour like...

I wish Moore played Bond more like he played the Saint.
From my experience, it's good to be courteous and polite to everyone (even people that do not always reply to good morning) but at the same time slightly reserved and low key. I also avoid office gossip and making statements about co-workers. I mainly speak to co-workers about work related issues. Non-essential chit chat is kept to a minimum. Never speak about my personal life/matters. Some people blab on about everything including their finances. There is a clique...

Hard to say. However polling suggests that large scale immigration has NEVER been endorsed by a majority of the population. I would say that many Liberal Party (main Conservative-centre-right party) voters hold the view that immigration numbers...

Let me guess, you speak another language, and it's a European one too eh? Try putting together a coherent argument before you post...while you're at it, go on buying your cheap rubbish and feeling good...

I bought them once at the outlet store and I could say that they were the lowest quality sheets I have ever seen. Just shame. Someone else that agrees "Made in India" goods are rubbish. Thanks for you honest review.

So are you saying there are no Australians that are European born or with European heritage? Or dual...
