    You will have far more prospect worldwide learning English than something else. This is not some weird other languages are useless rubbish, just an observation about the world of international trade and business.
    Learning English has nothing to do with this though really.
    No, but you aren't really going to get super far in that world without learning it.
    Eeeeh. Far enough for 99.995% of the population.
    95%.
    Eh maybe. I've seen a lot of people in high places who dont know english. Simply their jobs dont require it. They do speak german or french for example
    Sure. I mean 4.2something % of the people in the world speak it, so roughly 95% don't speak it. Same goes for Spanish.
    meh

    My ex wife was an adjunct, typically worked 3 part time jobs at a time. Despite her doctorate, she consistently made less money then me with no college degree.

    Ingvar Kamprad died yesterday and today some pleasant people from (communist) Left Party here in Sweden made a couple of posts that he was a full on Nazi and that all IKEA's money should be distributed to the workers.
    Political shots fired indeed.

    Not that I'm complaining, hopefully this kind of great PR thinking will take them well below the % bar for being part of parliament in this years election.

    Isn't it pretty well known that he was a nazi though?

    Yes, and no one is really denying that. It was a HUGE thing in the mid 90's. The big issue is that you dont wait until the day after the guy dies to say these things, if you really feel that way and that he has not done enough to redeem himself then be a man/woman enough to say it to his face and take the fight. Dont do tweets like "he was just another nazi, good riddance and who cares" when he no longer can defend himself. Thats just being a disrespectful asshole.

    It was "fun" reading through the post/tweet reactions though, when you get +4k posts and not a single one of them agrees with you, not even those on your on front.

    So being disrespectful about a dead nazi is worse than being the nazi in question?

    He died a fucking billionaire, it's not like he did badly out of being a nazi piece of shit.

    Seriously?

    He was an involved member of a far right political party, was an active recruiter for a literal nazi party. He was close friends with the inner circle of a fascists.

    What the fuck is wrong with you? Just because you like Ikea furniture you're going to be a nazi apologist?

    Now here is an interesting question: how does being a Swedish Nazi that believed in the ideology compare to a weapons developer using slave labor that may have only beome a Nazi because they paid for his research?

    No, wtf is wrong with you? Talk about completely missing the point.


    Anyway, if thats the yard stick we should forever measure everyone on then I guess you are walking around telling all those people that left the alt-right/nazi/wp groups and are now helping others to get out that they are forever nazi pieces of shit and it will never ever matter what they do, they should always be called that upon sight and shunned by society?

    I didnt think so.

    But for fun, in this case, guess who between IK and the swedish left that have apologized and done their best to own up for their involvement with extreme murderous factions during and after the war?


    Anyway, this doesnt matter really. Life will go on and nobody cares about you. Or me.
