This video has far too much of the 'indie' pulling in-and-out of focus thing.

A while ago, a company made the news for announcing that the minimum salary for all their employees would be $70,000.

Two workers ended up quitting because they were upset that new people got salaries similar to theirs, and while they got small to no raises.

This is common psychological behavior-- once you achieve your social standing, you retain it by making sure you stay ahead of those under you. "Last place" aversion in games. Or colloquially, "Keeping up with the Jones's".

This is also a common argument against raising the minimum wage to $15 (or whatever number): "Well what about the people like me who are already making $15?" Great, you make $15, which is already a livable wage. Other people bringing $15 will not somehow lower your quality of life.

“The only time you look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don't look in your neighbor's bowl to see if you have as much as them.” - Louis CK
When Dan Price announced he was setting a minimum salary of $70,000 for his 120 employees, he didn’t foresee the turmoil it would cause for his business.

I had to pause this video at the % minute mark for another 5 minutes. Way to go; now my sides hurt.

If you catch yourself watching the news or reading an article and think to yourself "these people need to calm down and act rationally", stop. Think about what would cause you to think in this way, act in this way. Look at the institutional prejudices and abuse that have led to this behavior. And ask yourself why you were not calling for rational acts before. Think about your position of privilege.

Did you miss today's SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch carrying a Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station? Want to see it again? Watch it now.

The Dragon spacecraft is on its own in orbit and operating with its arrays deployed as planned. Next stop, the space station where astronauts will use the station’s 57.7-foot robotic arm to reach out and capture it as they operate from the station’s cupola. Arrival is set for Friday at 7 a.m. EDT.

Saw Opeth there in October 2011 and the place was great. Sound was perfect, sounded great no matter where you were and wasn't overly loud and high pitch like most concerts. The size was great too, not massive but not a tiny pub.
