    US and UK Office are just different shows. I like both a lot, but for different reasons. Once the US version stopped trying to be a bad copy of the UK version by the start of season two, I didn't...

    You probably only have access to popular British TV, rather than a lot of the shite that fills airtime here.

    Looking at your list, you might also like (if you can find them):

    Thanks very much for for sharing. After a bad period Sept21-May22, I've thought a lot about the impact of poker on my mental health in the past 14 months. I took some time away from poker, then...

    Online only and with 90% of my volume on UK-only site Sky Poker.

    10nl-50nl cash and £3.30-£11 mtts. Only play peak times, average 7-10 hours per week and £12-£15 per hour profit.

    The marginal tax rate on going from £100k to £125k is a minimum of 65% and at least 73% if you have one child in childcare. So anybody with half a brain earning £100k-£140k just puts everything over...

    Robi is likely just a huge donk. We can't credit donks with realising how bad a call is. But it wouldn't surprise me if there was cheating going on in that game. We just can't say the evidence is...

    PR is one. Some other ideas for improvement (but not necessarily political reform as such):

    Removal of whips.

    Pay enough money to attract competent people to politics.

    If Boris becomes PM again, I'll be at the front of the rioting mob.

    We are desperately in need of political reform in the UK. You would have to be a special kind of stupid to not have realised that in the past few months.

    The latest episode of Yes, Minister has been played out today in real life UK politics. The incompetence is truly shocking.

    We need a mass protest against these idiots.

    We also need a party to position itself close to the centre with a clear plan. I haven't seen that yet, and we may not have long until the next...

    The mini-budget is madness and it's frightening that two people can fuck over a country like that. At least with brexit it was 30-somethjng percent of voters.

    When the IMF tell come out and tell...

    Largely a nonsensical, pure Tory mini-budget yesterday. Disgusting really

    They gave the relatively well off some more money, but that immediately got inflated away with a weakening of Sterling....

    My experience was the same as yours, but without the gifted program. But modern teachers would argue that a good teacher challenges all kids in one lesson. And there are benefits to the smarter kids...

    Agree, that's the debate. Combined with the most appropriate method. Governments have proven time and again they are sub-standard at allocating resources. The onus needs to be on the rich supporting...

    After the interest rise today and the dramatic weakening of Sterling, this country really is fucked. While external factors haven't helped, 12 years of tory rule have done us in. I can't believe...

    Education research these days advocates for mixed ability classes being optimal for all students. That surprises me, but that's what Mrs Bean tells me (she reads a lot of it). Question though: why...

    Nope, but I'm done with explaining why this "analysis" is useless.

    Ong might have been relatively poor in a financial sense, but not living in poverty by his own admission.
  20. Nope. The measures don't tell you that at all....

    Nope. The measures don't tell you that at all. They don't tell you anything.

    Relative poverty isn't a thing either imo. You either live in poverty or you don't. Somebody earning 60% of the median...

    Question for you guys:

    Who is better at allocating resources and redistributing wealth? Government, charities or wealthy entrepreneurs?

    It's a measure of relative income and almost pointless. It has nothing to do with standard of living, starvation, homelessness, etc.

    Norway is an interesting country though. I was there recently....

    The point is this kind of aggregated data is almost useless. The devil is in the detail and the imperfections of the measurement. I'd want to see the data segregated into at least 50 sub-sections to...

    The JRF link. It's dumb and it would be shocking if it was published and made it past peer review. Here's how the conversation should go:

    Come on poop, that's bad analysis you linked. I'm not denying some kids live in hardship, but this is akin to the union rep I heard being angry about half the staff in the organisation earning less...
