    *RUMOR* Holloway vs Ferguson for LW interim title

    He's moved on to new pastures I'm afraid. I don't think he was enjoying the aforementioned toxicity so much. Quite a few folk have quietly moved on in 2019.

    The irony is also that accusing people of being an alt is generally ironic. If you're a loyal subject of the Queen though I'm willing to overlook your shameless thread bumping and give you a warm welcome. Don't let these septics drag you down.

    That was what my NoCake alt was for.

    You sure it's nothing to do with merged threads? I think you should read the whole of idyb gsp mcmega merge thread to test this theory.

    It's a great word and is used as a term of endearment for a 'mate '. 'Alright me old mucker' is a fairly common greeting.

  8. Wrestling's a key part of MMA, but i hate fighters who do very little with it other than hold "position". Wrestlers who try to GnP their opponent into the mat, or throw them like a rag doll are entertaining to watch. Who doesn't like a Rampage power slam, for example? But dudes hitting a takedown in the last minute and lying there to steal a round are the worst.

    You'd like it here mate. There's plenty of good moose-hunting around here. Mate of mine at work goes out every weekend.

    Yep. I've basically got a job for life now. Kind of explains why everyone is at least 30% lazier over here than in the UK....yet somehow it all seems to work.

    Meh. Strangers on the internet arguing with each other is generally more interesting than politics tbh. I just have an affinity for both you and 12er, so it does start to feel like mom and dad arguing. I'll let you guys work out who's who in that analogy.

    Reply to my post about worker's rights in Sweden. I find 12er and Cashflow squabbling most distressing. I'm pretty sure that a thought-provoking debate about socialist mainland Europe will calm things down.

    So here's a bit of compare and contrast for you regarding getting rid of employees. I've recently had to hire someone in my offshore team to do a load of stuff that a guy working here in Sweden was doing. I assumed he was moving on to something else, or had got another job, but it turns out he's just been doing a really crappy job. So I assumed he'd be getting his marching orders....but no...turns out that here you have to demonstrably perform poorly in 3 consecutive jobs for 6 months each before you can be dismissed. So you can be hot garbage for 17.5 months, do a couple of weeks of hard work and you're okay. I'm all for supporting the honest worker from corporate greed, but they've gone far too far the other way in mainland Europe. Lol, when I left my previous job, it was taken on by a woman based in Texas. There was one guy in the team who she decided wasn't up to scratch and just fired him. Unfortunately, he was based in Holland, which is even more protective than Sweden. She thought she'd have to pay him his notice period (4 weeks)....ended up costing the company 3 years' salary!
