The kid's thinking


Who am I in this picture?
I'm the kid scratching his ballz like we (boys) all do at that age.
Because we don't know what they're for, and they just feel weird.
The guy in orange is my brother.
I have no clue how old we were.
I was probably four.
I remember that when I was that age, I thought silly things.
Like, that people really got killed in the movies, and that they were probably convicts deserving it whom were given a chance at acting instead of dying unfamous in an elecric chair.
I thought something horrible happened when you sneezed, because you always close your eyes.
A natural reflex to not see whatever abonimation appeared in a flash.
And I thought midnight was a pretty late hour to go to bed, and only criminals dared to go to bed so late.
I also started believing in the Santa Claus for a year, because my uncle came disguised at one, and started pulling magic tricks and vanished.
I thought. 'wow, this is real magic, it has to bo real!'
Next year, my uncle was less magic, and I caught the santa Claus in the bathroom changing into my uncle. That was it for me. (I was five.)
Five minutes earlier, Santa farted, so I started to suspect something.
My bro once had fallen into a weird trip.
He had put underwear (you know, the white ones that look so standard, and that get saggy if you're an elder wearing them? Those with the slit you pull your thing out of to pee.)
Anyway, he had put fourteen on top of each other, and believe me, it is as hard as a cast.
The laugh we had.
So I thought...why aren't guys constantly wearing as many? It's the best defence against hits in the groin. After 20 minutes of that, I understood why guys were not wearing them constantly.
This is also the age I started discovering stuff.
I tested pissing while running.
Funny, it takes a lot of will power to start running and ignore the fact that you shouldn't run while pissing.

Yo, by the way, I don't watch the bus schedule for my boss no longer.
It's all lies anyway. I just feel like taking a marker and writing a big fat 'LIES' on it.
When the bus comes at the right time, it's just a coincidence. Out of twenty times, you're bound to get the right time if you're supposed to be there every 6 minutes.
AND, I also don't like the fact that they're cock blocking everything possible to be done in the metro.
The latest example is the fine they now give you for holding the door. Up to 500$.
I used to hold the door for people who really seemed to be in a hurry, and that the driver would try to ditch. People were thanking me. I was pleased to help someone. What is it for the rest of the people? 3 seconds?
Plus, I'm in war with the STM, so I'll gladly go for the clients like me rather than for the fools working for the STM.
But they eventually got angry that a person like me helped other people not get ditched.
So here we have it. Selfish society that encourages selfishness and competition.

I'd also like to denounce the open sexual discrimination the STM does towards men.
You didn't know? Yes, discrimination is also possible at the detriment of men.
If you read the electronic media in the metro, you'll see the ad that says the STM is hiring women for bus and metro driving.
I thought sexes were equal, and that men were as able as a women at driving.
In other words, this ad clearly states that women will be hired over men.
Isn't that discrimination? A choice over sex is clearly sexual discrimination to me.
Let's imagine the ad stating 'Hiring men for bus and metro driving'.
Inimmaginable! Now THAT would be discrimination.
STM is just too backwards. Everyone else is trying to fight discrimination for the sake of equality, while STM promotes it.
Let's just hire everyone applying for the job with equal chances, with equal rights and equal salaries without regard to the sex nor ethny.
Is that unreasonable? Is that foolish?

Le fait que la STM publie des affiches pour engager des femmes est sûrement due au fait que des organisations féministes aient harcelé la compagnie.

Mais si la STM essaye d’engager plus de femmes et de travailleurs immigrants je trouve que ce n’est vraiment pas une mauvaise idée.

Ils se sont sûrement aperçus que leur effectif était faible en femmes mais reste à savoir si les salaires sont les mêmes.

De plus je trouve que les bonnes femmes qui travaillent comme chauffeur de bus sont mille fois plus aimable que leurs collègues hommes qui font souvent la gueule en ne vous retournant pas votre bonjour.

Je trouve vraiment génial cette innocence qu'on les enfants sur le monde qui les entoure! Ils sont dans leur monde certes mais un enfant ça a besoin d'être protégé!
D'ailleurs j'ai vraiment l'impression parfois, même à 27 ans, d'être encore trop naïve sur ce qui m'entoure!

L'épisode de pisser et courir en même temps m'a bien fait sourire en tout cas :)

Je ne connais pas la STM mais j'en ai déduit que c'était la compagnie des transports sur Montréal, c'est ça?

Yo Louis, tu m'as bien fait rire, j'avais complètement oublié cet épisode des caleçons, et l'histoire de pisser en courrant, c'est gold...

Pour la politique d'embauche de la STM, ça s'appelle - en français - de la discrimination positive et ça existe depuis déjà un bout de temps (depuis l'activisme afro-américain des années 60?). Je pense que l'idée c'est de rectifier une injustice passée causée par certains préjugés indus (ex.: chauffeur de bus, c'est pas pour les femmes, les femmes ça sait pas conduire - résultat: très peu de femmes chauffeur de bus) qui entrainaient une sur-représentation d'une portion de la population dans une boulot donné au détriment d'une autre section de la population.

D'après ce que je comprends, la discrimination positive est justifiée dans une politique d'embauche jusqu'à ce que les différents segments de la population soient représentés de façon adéquate parmi un ensemble de salariés assez grand pour avoir une signification statistique.

Par ailleurs, comme rien n'est jamais simple, le débat déborde du cadre théorique jusque dans une zone grise: la Cour suprême s'est déjà penchée sur l'argument d'une candidate à un poste de pompier qui n'avait pas réussi à passer les standards des tests physiques. La candidate recalée avançait que les standards étaient tellement élevés qu'ils ne permettaient pas aux femmes d'accéder à la profession de pompier, ce qui les rendaient discriminatoires.

Le contre-argument veut que les standards sont le plus élevé possible pour maximiser les chances de sauver des gens dans des situations d'urgence où chaque fraction de seconde compte.

Comment résoudre ce problème? La question n'est pas simple, selon moi. La Cour a tranché en faveur de la candidate, et les standards ont du être abaissés.

Ben, en ce qui me concerne, les standards ne devraient pas etre changés. Il est injuste de modifier le test d'admission pour que tous peuvent devenir pompiers.
La sécurité des gens a sauver est en jeu.
Les gens qui ont un faible QI ne demandent pas une modification au standard d'admission.
Si je suis maigre de nature, je ne vais pas demander une baisse du standard de qualification pour l'altérophilie aux olympiques.
L'homme et la femme sont différents, et il me semble vain d'essayer de les uniformiser en toute matieres.
Les deux sexes ont leur qualités et leur defauts, et il y a plusieurs endroits ou la femme est plus douée que l'homme, mais pompier n'est pas un de ces endroits.
Phisyquement, il faut admettre que l'homme est avantagé pour la carriere de pompier.
Et pour Affirmative action...

Affirmative action (U.S. English), or positive discrimination (British English), is a policy or a program of giving certain preferences to certain (usually under-represented) groups. This typically focuses on education, employment, government contracts, health care, or social welfare.

There is much debate concerning claims that it fails to achieve its desired goal, and that it has unintended and undesirable side-effects. There are also claims that the practice is itself racist or sexist.

Je ne sais pas si la campagne de recrutement de la STM a pour but de rectifier une injustice du passé qui était de dire ‘’chauffeur de bus, c'est pas pour les femmes, les femmes ça sait pas conduire’’.

Cela me fait penser à une blague que mes amis et moi on se lançaient pour rire sur la route : ''Femme au volant mort au tournant''.

Hahaha... Hein quoi ? C'est pas drôle ?

En tous cas quoi qu'il en soit la STM se fait juste influencer par des chiffres et des statistiques que le gouvernement leur lance.

Le gouvernement dit : -STM, il y a de plus en plus de femmes et d’immigrants sur le marché du travail.
-Des groupes des droits de la personne et certains partis politiques de gauche font pression sur nous, il fait que tu engages.

La STM rétorque : Ok, ok… Je vais voir ce que je peux faire à ce sujet.
Je vais placarder des affiches avec des photos de bonnes femmes souriantes et pas encore ménopausées un peu partout question d’avoir bonne conscience.


STM quand tu nous tiens.

l'utilisateur anonyme était Zak.
Et il ne pense pas que les femmes ne savent pas conduire, il dit que c'etait la pensée macho de l'époque. Il dit que cette pensée était une erreur du passé.
D'ailleurs, dans sa réplique un peu plus haut, il disait etre en faveur de la discrimination positive.
Zak est de ton bord Sofy.
Pas besoin de kicker le cul de qui que ce soit.

yo louis, i got no idea what these people are saying in french cuz u know me and french dont get along, it gives me a rash... anyways... think about it this way louis... if you hold the door so 1, 2, or 5 people get into the metro and make it on time somewhere... there are way more than 5 people on the train. not to mention the other trains on the same line. all trains need to be a certain distance apart from one another, and because you hold on to the door and stop service, the whole line stops and has to wait for all the trains to syncronize to their distances and shit again. so in the bigger picture louis, u help out 1, 2, or even 5 people... but you're screwing over 1, 2 or even 5 hundred people...

your debating buddy,
