    In 10th place was a move aimed at the heart of Australian culture when security staff were banned from using the word "mate" to address members of parliament. The MPs rebelled and said not being called "mate" was unpatriotic.
    I lol'd.

    The worlds becoming a little too politically correct if you ask me. Thought shower and deferred success are where I'm drawing the line. If you failed you failed. Sugar coating it won't make a difference, and you just insult students intelligence by trying if you ask me. I'm glad most of this crap will never catch on (hoping anyway).

    this is simply laughable. Honestly. Minimum Wage Workers and Starters or beginning jobs were renamed "Entry Level Position".

    If you're new to a job, you're a beginner, you're on the low-rank of a job.

    I have no problem with offending people, most of the time, people that get offended are offended by the smallest things.

    People need to learn that just because they are offended, it doesn't mean that they don't have serious character defects.

    Besides... What hits harder, the big fat "Failed" and being called a "Failure", or saying "He opted to defer his success" ? Seriously.

    This thread offends me.

    Note how a couple of the worst ones are English. Mmmmm, gotta love that deferred success of our politically correct enterprises, yes?

    In other news, Yams vs. ed round 1

    Nah. Not yet. Yams had made a great joke. Instead of being banned I would have my 'membership permanently withheld'. Great pun. I get PMs when my swearing gets outta control

    Yeah, I'm going to quit using the word 'brainstorm' because when I say 'brainstorm' I'm actually referring to people with brain disorders and poking fun at them. Some people really need to get a life.

    Second on the list was "Intrinsic Aptitude," a phrase used by Harvard University President Lawrence Summers to explain why women might be underrepresented in engineering and science. The phrase met with "deferred success" and Summers had to fight to keep to his job.
    ahahahaha

    Yeah, that's retarded.
