Also known as unilateral disarmament. You want to sit quietly, worry only about the aggressor's fee-fees, and not their victims' wounds, you can do so in the Vichy Corner. The rest of us might actually try and make the world a better place.
So, "family show" is defined as a bunch of men engaging in pretty blatant homo-erotic S&M play, while women are shown on the sidelines doing routines that most of these municipalities forbid for strip-clubs"? But a nipple is so explicitly over the top, that the world ends? Unless you are using the sheet-with-a-hole method, the nipple was involved in the creation of the family - and was probably used in the rearing of the family (unless you also believed that your kid must be the sole supporter of the dairy industry). Please explain in non-retard-speak how the nipple is not family oriented, but intentional violence (with Spartacus-levels of homoerotism) and hootchie-girls is pure, chaste family embodiement
My running theory is that cheap hotels give free wireless because they see it as a way to attract customers (like advertising HBO). On the other hand, fancy hotels figure that either (a) their customers will consider the price a small part of the total cost of the trip, and/or (b) they are traveling on business and the expense account will cover it
I think what he means by lecturers losing jobs has to do with how administrators want the courses designed. They want a course format set-up in such a manner as that any warm body can "teach" the course. Basically, lay out all the info, and then do assessment in such a form that actual teaching by the "instructor" is not needed. The meatspace equivalent would be: "Write us a book containing all the lectures needed for the course in a format easily read by freshmen, then write a couple multiple choice exams and a key. Here's $50, now leave peaceably or security will escort you out unconscious on a stretcher". He phrased it so badly as to possibly rip space-time with the derp, but he basically means "we plan to stop the university from charging you a premium for online access to a random guy holding a three-ring binder and a GED".
