I’m in a twisted, very casual D/s relationship in which I’m a Dom, for once, and I have no idea how to keep a straight face sometimes.
Like, seriously, you want to clean my toys with your mouth? You want me to tell you that your dick is tiny? WHY? WHAT DID MOMMY DO TO YOU?
And then I realize that every time someone puts a hand around my throat, they’re thinking the same fucking thing.
That’s not what I’m thinking. When a girl is submissive and likes my hand around her throat I just think that she is allowing the primal submissive feminine instincts to take hold. That’s fun sometimes, but it gets boring after awhile to be honest. I’d prefer someone with sexuality defined by their fucked up experiences rather than the fucked up influence of evolution.
Samsung service worker Choi Jong-beom committed suicide on October 31 in protest against poverty wages and harsh working conditions at the company’s operations in South Korea.
The 31-year-old was found dead in his car the following morning. He left behind a wife and a 10-month-old daughter.
Choi was a contract worker employed at a Samsung after-sale service centre that provided repair and maintenance services to customers. The service centre was owned and operated by an outsourced contractor.
Choi’s death occurred against the backdrop of management pressure against union workers at outsourced Samsung service centres across the county. In a November 1 statement, the Samsung service centre union said he was “being targeted for investigation and pressure from Samsung because of his union activities”.
Samsung runs a strict “no union” policy that has largely kept unions out of Samsung operations since it was founded in 1938. Despite this hostility, 1600 workers from 64 service centres formed a trade union in August. It is affiliated with the Korean Metal Workers Union and the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions.
This is the first time Samsung workers have managed to successfully unionise in significant numbers.
Pressure to dismantle the union came directly from Samsung company headquarters in Seoul. The parent company has been waging war against unionised service centres by cutting wages, increasing workloads and reallocating work to other outsource companies that hire scab labour.
I was once talking about the proposed smoking ban on campus with the guy I used to see, who is a neuroscientist and all in to the latest research in science. We were walking on our way to lunch on campus and I mentioned how everyone always freaks out of over second hand smoke which really does not statistically show any significant adverse health effects. He said, “You know, the scientific community has created a thing called third hand smoking now. If you smoke, your clothing and hair absorbs the smoke, and they say that can kill people now.” I called bullshit, so he started belittling me a bit, saying I don’t “read the latest scientific journals” and such.
This guy walking in front of us overheard and said, “You don’t need a man like that. He’s a pussy. You deserve way better.”
It was amusing.
I <3 smoking.
Fourth hand smoke: when someone returns a smile tobacco gave you.
