Simple Sabotage Field Manual.

http://www.businessinsider.com/oss-manual-sabotage-productivity-2015-11

Quote:
Here’s a list of five particularly timeless tips from the Simple Sabotage Field Manual:

Managers and Supervisors: To lower morale and production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work.
Employees: Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one.
Organizations and Conferences: When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committees as large and bureaucratic as possible. Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.
Telephone: At office, hotel and local telephone switchboards, delay putting calls through, give out wrong numbers, cut people off “accidentally,” or forget to disconnect them so that the line cannot be used again.
Transportation: Make train travel as inconvenient as possible for enemy personnel. Issue two tickets for the same seat on a train in order to set up an “interesting” argument.

That is amazing: we should have the key bits of this up in the library here

it's him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Horan

Quote:
Cornelius "Neil" Horan, sometimes referred to as The Grand Prix Priest or The Dancing Priest (born 22 April 1947), is a defrocked Irish Roman Catholic priest who is noted for his interference with the running of the 2003 British Grand Prix and the 2004 Summer Olympics men's marathon in order to promote his religious belief that the end of the world is near. He went on to appear on Britain's Got Talent in May 2009. He danced a soft jig on the show, received a standing ovation by the audience and was put through to the next round. He did not make the live semi-finals. In 2004 he was found not guilty of indecent assault against a seven-year-old girl.

Quote:
The Chinese steel industry, like the Chinese economy as a whole, operates in a way that is fundamentally different from capitalism. The main purpose of production in China is not to maximise profit or seize a larger share of the world market.

Could someone tell me what's in the Galloway tweet? He's blocked me.

Funniest thing I read today was a text I received at work from my daughter who was working at home. It said "We have no power." She then followed it up with " I don't mean we have no power and all power to the people, I mean the electricity is out."
I love that she felt that she needed to clarify that one.

Haha, what a great text.

The Galloway tweet says "Trump is a change agent." Excuse me while I go vomit.

Someones made a version of the original Wolfenstein 3-D with nag screens asking if it is OK to shoot nazis.

It's just about unplayable, but that's the point.

From a thread annoyed at all the "tolerant left" cartoons about the UC Berkley protests.

Quote:
"Antifa Black Bloc slammed two fireworks into the campus, (Commander In) Chief. We was comin’ back from the city of San Francisco to Berkeley. We’d just delivered Milo. One of the good ones. Eleven hat wearing men went into the counterprotest. Our line went down in 12 minutes.

Didn’t see the first leftist for about a half-hour. Anarchist. 6-footer. You know how you know that in the streets Chief? You can tell by lookin’ from the hoody to the boots. What we didn’t know, was that our counterprotest was so secret, no distress tweet had been sent. They didn’t even list us overdue for 6 hours. Very first streetlight, Chief, leftists come cruisin’ by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calenders. Infantry squares like in the old calendars like the Battle of Bunker Hill and the idea was the leftist come to the nearest man, that man he starts trollin’ and posturin’ and sometimes that leftist he go away… but sometimes he wouldn’t go away.

Sometimes that leftist looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a leftist is he’s got watery eyes. Weepy eyes. Like a baby’s eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn’t even seem to be an adult… ’til he punches ya, and those watery eyes roll over commie red and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched virtue signalin’. The Overton Window closes up, and despite all your trollin’ and your posturin’ those leftists come in and… they tolerate you to pieces.

Anyway, the speech was cancelled.”

Japanese men's group say Valentine's Day is conspiracy, hurt their feelings

As Japan prepares to celebrate Valentine's Day, a cranky group of Marxist protesters have called for an end to public displays of love, claiming it hurts their feelings.

Members of 'Kakuhido', or the Revolutionary Alliance of Men that Women find Unattractive, unfurled a giant "Smash Valentine's Day" banner as the party-poopers set off to try and overthrow the annual celebration of romance. [...]
