But when you're talking in someone's office, and he asks you to close the door (the spookiness starting) and opens a desk drawer to reveal a gun (no warning), obviously looking for some kind of reaction, I have to wonder about motive. Notice the "show it to friends" is in quotes; does Unsure at some level also wonder about the friendliness of this act? Unsure was there - I wasn't, but this reporting feels very odd. Irrational acts like these give gun ownership a bad name and who needs this kind of behavior as a touchstone for argument against guns? In the coming years gun laws are going to be ever more mightily challenged by legislation.
"Guns don't kill people. People kill people." ~ Bumper-sticker slogan of NRA supporters, which makes the obvious point that guns normally don't go off without some kind of human intervention, and that the real solution to violence is not in making any certain potentially lethal device unavailable, but in changing basic human nature from violent to peaceful.

oing on here? You should be attending one of those social clubs instead, surely? And yeah - I think spending too much time on computers rather than face to face is making people unhappy.
Maybe that's what's wrong with the world? It's certainly proven that kids who spend more time playing violent games are becoming desensitised to the outside world; so when they see an act of violence in real life, or on the TV – they show less of an emotional reaction. Kids are becoming worryingly separated from real life, almost like they are living in a dream. When you add to that all of the crap that goes into the food they eat, and soda’s they drink – it’s a sorry state of play indeed!
Anyway, that’s much bigger stuff, outside of general recruitment topics... not sure if you all need me standing on my soapbox preaching about how much of a mess our countries (UK and USA) are in right now. However... the way our world is going most certainly does have an indirect impact on our industry.... and one big issue I’m worried about is this...
How the hell am I going to be able to place an arthritic, short sighted, verbally challenged, overweight, hunchbacked human being; who is also extremely unhappy, with the attention span of a flea, and the emotional capacity of a 2 year old ???
Imagine presenting someone like that to a client? Although... the client may well be of the same character, if they are young enough... and then what? I’d give my desk over to my pet monkey to manage for me...they’d probably do a better job!
PS. The monkey would be placed on the payroll, they would have employee rights, and would be entitled to full holiday and sickness pay. I’m an equal rights employer after all!…
