Y'all should read David Graeber's article if you haven't already. He takes Fuuma's argument one step further:
Quote:
While corporations may engage in ruthless downsizing, the lay-offs and speed-ups invariably fall on that class of people who are actually making, moving, fixing and maintaining things; through some strange alchemy no one can quite explain, the number of salaried paper-pushers ultimately seems to expand, and more and more employees find themselves, not unlike Soviet workers actually, working 40 or even 50-hour weeks on paper, but effectively working 15 hours just as Keynes predicted, since the rest of their time is spent organising or attending motivational seminars, updating their Facebook profiles or downloading television series.

IMO it's sorta pointless to claim any job is 'irrelevant' or 'bullshit' in any objective sense, since the people shelling out the money for Oprah to stay on air or the social media assistant to log into Snickers' Twitter account obviously think some value is coming from the investment. The important discussion is the way we fetishize 'knowledge work' to the point where other forms of labor get shafted and where time in the office occupies a disproportionate share of our lives.

I realllllly think I want to keep it, but I am having a hard time justifying it. And if I cant justify a kop, thats pretty bad.


Determine a fair price and offer it. Not that hard.

edit: there is no sleek in the winter world of comfortable feet, buy the slippers that look like baby capybaras

I have these and so I will second this. I sized down 1 full size from my normal dress shoe size. They are extremely comfortable and I am coming up on having had them for 2 years (in about a month) and they have held up really well. Cheaper slippers that I had in the past were always trashed within a couple months. These still feel nice and cozy. And fuck slippers that don't surround your ankles, those are bullshit. I want my whole foot to be warm, thankyouverymuch.

He is a good friend. There will be no games. That being said, I got some PMs, and I have a better handle now on what the "market" is and what a proper asking price should be. Thanks for the helps, guys.

A we are both of the Jewish, it would have to be a Hannukah present. In any case, that is also an option.

Armani still put out some seriously nice stuff. Picked up a fairly weird jacket in a private sale at a good price, but they had a lot of good stuff in the collection this year.

I stumbled upon a Schneider frozen waves Marino coat in tan. It's freaking awesome, but I already have one in charcoal.

Depending on how much I love it in person when it arrives I might keep it or I think that I might sell it to a friend of mine, but I have no idea how much I should ask. I don't want to rip him off, but I also don't want to give it away. What would be fair?

Is your friend me? If not, can I be your friend? PM me broheim.
