So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

It's the same percentage as the average person is said to donate to charity.

Nah, that would be 3%

Depends what you read I suppose, but had this argument months ago over Gates and found stuff saying it ranges from 4-8%.

Not worth going into a debate over it, but having worked with a number of charities over the years, the figure (certainly in this country) is between 3-5%. I guess the US might push that up, not sure?

By the way, Obama got a huge amount of praise donating around 6% of his income to charity.

Obama isn’t the richest man in human history, nor did he build his wealth on the back of cheap labor.

Every rich person in history built their wealth on the back of cheap labour.

Here's $10bn to fight climate change.      Booooooooo

Here's 1000 jobs in an area that needs them     Booooooooooooooooooooooooooo

We're gonna pay over minimum wage    f***ing BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

By this logic I exploit cheap labor because my shirt was made in Bangladesh. Still quite a bit different than having tens of billions of dollars but forcing your employees to p*ss in cups because they’re not allowed to take breaks on shift.

You're a teacher as I recall.  Do you find positive or negative reinforcement more productive?

:lol: nah I gave that up. Didn’t have it in me.

What seems to be forgotten is it's not just Bezos. Around the world "hundreds of billions" that could be spent on basics to make the world a better place while while the mega wealthy stay mega wealthy just slightly less so, wont be spent through sheer greed. Bezos is culpable in that.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

I'm not even sure his wealth will drop. It might, numerically, appear less, but that doesn't actually reflect it's worth. The mega rich will happily spend every penny they have to maintain their wealth, because it is their wealth, not their finances, that empower them.

Don’t agree with banning anything but agree with the sentiment of this a cruise ship uses the same amount of energy as a city of 300,000 apparently. Isn’t that roughly the size of Newcastle?

Aye. Bans are usually counter-productive, anyway. Just charge them the f***ing earth, as that's what it's costing everybody else.

On the bright side, we're about to get some real evidence showing what effect cutting down on flights has on the environment.

Cruises are f***ing awful. I went on my first one last year for my parents' 50th anniversary. First and last. Ten days of watching fat people get fatter before your very eyes.
Not one of the cool kids, and really insecure about it.

We're fortunate over here that Rob Brydon advertises them. A clear indication that they're s***.

I can't think of anything less appealing than a cruise. My parents used to go on loads and always complain it was s*** every time, but then still go on another one.

I guess you usually know the demographic is going to be older people from your country and all your land trips are pre-organised so it’s a ‘safe’ way to see a few places. It’s very much not for me but I guess it’s an easy, comfortable way to see a few places in one go.

Usually places you go are made 100x worse when the cruise docks because it’s mad crowded n all. Seem to remember Dubrovnik being a f***ing nightmare and that was before it got mad busy regardless.
