I thought I'd poke my head out of the shell of the Faraday cage before I'm plunged back into pre internet darkness for the rest of the week!
So @agile_geek does that mean you've got a new job?
No it means I'm looking...hard!
Plenty of permanent junior jobs in NE but not much in way of senior contracts.
Quick barometer check, anyone here think that the self-styled “Alt-Right” movement has any__ redeeming features at all or indeed any sections therein that are not fundamentally prejudiced against minority groups? Honestly I want to know, no judgement, as I may need to adjust my thinking…
I suspect that some sections of what are known as the ‘Alt-Right’ are not fundamentally prejudiced. Mostly on the grounds that “all generalisations are false”, rather than because of any specific knowledge in this area.
On the other hand if you hang around with overt fascists, then you probably deserve the assumptions that people will make about you.
If I was being charitable I might say that an enthusiasm for questioning the status quo is a redeeming feature, but honestly I don’t think that’s enough to redeem some of the other features witnessed. (not by a very large margin)
Thanks @peterwestmacott - I feel reassured in my position. 🙂
what made you feel that you might need to adjust your thinking?
Someone I thought__ I knew well was tying themselves in knots defending the Alt-Right and I just thought that I ought to get a reality check.
@agile_geek https://stackoverflow.com/jobs/147845/ha-ha-ha-ha-if-you-know-why-you-mindera-uk?a=D4ROTz6FaBAUYeuA you'll probably be interested in this. Not sure how long it would take you to get to Leicester. Very nice place though 🙂.
@maleghast @peterwestmacott for what it's worth, my 'Alt-Right' moves the cursor (point) one word to the right (I prefer to call it 'Meta-right').....or is that not what you were discusing?
@dominicm thanks for thinking of me but (for personal reasons I can't go into) I'm not looking for a permanent role. This should answer your question about how easy it is to get to Leicester.... https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/Washington/Leicesterfirstname.lastname@example.org,-2.3571684,8z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m8!4m7!1m2!1m1!1s0x487e64c8cbe0fc97:0xa8135c37990656ba!1m2!1m1!1s0x487742ab49b76c73:0x9a151d2a6fb49cb8!3e0 Not exactly daily commuting distance!
I thought the distance between Newcastle and Nottingham was shorter... I have no idea why.
you might be thinking of lexicographic distance?
