  1. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    You'd expect a break in full time employment to affect the pay balance though which kind of defeats the purpose of producing such stats!
  2. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    Possibly. That's the problem with statistics on this matter, too many variables when looking at the subject as a whole.
  3. My wife is due to go back to work in April and is suddenly talking about buying a house, then she said she's wanting a new car. She's taken me away to Okinawa for a birthday treat and has already booked us for a trip to the Izu peninsula next month. I think I've married a secret millionairess......or she's not holding out much hope for me and already spending the life insurance!
  4. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    Does it allow for scenarios such as the one I mentioned? e.g. Breaks in full time employment?
  5. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    I've often wondered if these stats allow for women taking time out to have and bring up children? I know the U.K. now has paternity leave for men but in pretty much all cases of friends I know the mother chooses to stay at home for the early formative years. Nothing wrong with that as it's a vitally important job (I'll be a stay at home Dad from April) but can you really expect to paid the same as a coworker after a 2-5 year absence, particularly in ever evolving industries such as IT? My earning power as a freelancer in my previous career was down to market rates and the strength of my negotiating from literally naming your price in the boom time to begging in the bust.... .was the same for most plus not many women in the construction industry though so not enough data for me to say I saw a disproportionate pay scale between the sexes.

    Who was he before the platinum name change.

    He claimed bukkake was on the National schools curriculum in Japan the other day! OFTW imo.
  8. You trust Dave King more than Mike Ashley, Bob?
  9. Of course I don't want any of the above banned. I'm all for free choice. That said, I can control my urges and not be conned into believing I'll always beat the bookmakers nor into giving my bank or PC remote access details to someone online. Like I said previously, I came here on the wind up which the OP eventually spotted. If he genuinely makes a living from the gambling industry then fair play to him. Free enterprise and all that.
  10. You might need one or two more before October. Japan is pretty expensive.
  11. Not at all. If someone with an addictive personality can't control their urges who am I to stop them. I was merely pointing out the the gambling industry has a terrible reputation. That is undeniable.
  12. You're confusing "rage" with "piss taking".
  13. Given the misery that gambling brings to many peoples lives I'm not surprised. Do you compliment the numerous cold calling companies on the employment they bring to the Country?
  14. Ego? I have zero interesting betting......never have really. If you genuinely make a living off the industry then good luck to you. Perhaps we should just start red dotting you. Worked the last time......
