    Thats the rather simple and childish view I had when I was 16 – Do you really believe that society should value a slum landlord in the same way it values a heart surgeon?

    @cam sounds to me like you have already internalised the view that manual/low skill is less valuable than the intellectual. Why add the subriquet ‘slum’ to the low skilled and respect the title of the intellectual? Lets just change that to the more positive nickname.

    “Do you really believe that society should value a social landlord in the same way it values a heart surgeon?” – well yes I think society should value them both as they are both contributing to health, welfare and so on.

    What you are really saying is what you don’t value is people who do particular jobs badly. Slum landlord or reckless heart…[Read more]

    People trafficking isn’t a job. So no.

    @cam Of course it is, don’t be ridiculous! So is heroin dealing, and all sorts of other things that not only aren’t valuable, but are actually make “life as we know it” much worse.

    Rubber Duck Manufacturing provides jobs and financial security to the families that work there. In turn they will put that money back into the economy. The actual product can be sold in shops worldwide, providing jobs within the distribution industry… and so on and on.

    But it isn’t important, and your ‘wheel’ won’t weaken and fail without it, it’ll just reconfigure into something slightly different.

    I believe that somebody should be valued according to the type of person that they are.

    In your rather simple and childish view, we should value the heart s…

    The wheels rim is the population, the wheels hub is life as we know it. Then every single job in the world, is a spoke on that wheel. You can take a spoke away, and it might survive for abit, but eventually it’ll weaken and fail. Every single job is just as important as the next!

    @cam I’m happy that it can be argued that, say, cleaning is as important as surgery.

    But how is homaeopathy as important as these? Rubber duck manufacturing? People trafficking?

    I put it to you that your snippet sounds quite good at first, but doesn’t fare well under examination! 😉

    Repetitive movements (whilst applying even the slightest pressure to the arm/shoulder) really set me up for pain for days. I also wake up most nights in pain when I have turned on to my side in my sleep. Fortunately I can get back to sleep pretty quickly once I have adjusted my position.

    @cam Yes, the arm up high is a nightmare! The chiropractor is really helping, not just with the shoulder, but also with keeping my whole posture in check.

    @jam Fortunately mine isn’t as bad an injury as some of you describe. I haven’t had an MRI. Have Physio exercises to do, massage, chiropractor and going to try acupuncture too. I’m hoping that these things combined will sort me out without having to escalate to steroid injections or surgery.
    Hope everyone else is doing ok.

  • @cam Why didn’t I think of that?

    So far the official Google forum is no help either and I do not appear to be alone in this problem
