A while ago, I was applying to a job. I read that they wanted employees who would serve customers with *"heart and soul,"* and realizing I had neither of these things I had a question for you people... Do you actually want customer service to be bubbly and friendly, with chit-chat and the like, or would you prefer polite but reserved service? For example, would you prefer "evening sir, may I take your order" or "Howdy partner! Hows it going? Having a good time I hope? Which of our delicious mains could I interest you in? Is this your first time here?" I actually overheard some girls talking about how nice it was how talkative the staff were at some cafe, and I could believe people actually thought this way.I think you know what I'd prefer, and I think you know I didn't get that job.
So I was watching Britain's got talent tonight, for some unimaginable reason, and I see some magician perform. This guy does some run of the mill trick about predicting the things the judges would choose in advance, etc, like I've seen too many times before. What really irked me was this: In the middle of his act he plays a slide show showing how his wife had cancer and was pregnant but somehow both the baby and the wife survived (or something along those lines), and he said how that was "true magic." He works his child into the act somehow, the details don't matter. Of course everyone tears up, and he gets the "golden buzzer" to go through to the next round.There were several other performers who were nothing special, but got full marks because of their unfortunate circumstances. This makes me sick. The show isn't called "Britain's got sob stories," it's meant to be about talent. Not only is it unfair to other competitors, but it seems disgusting to exploit something like that, as if pity is some sort of currency. What gets me the most is how it upsets any sort of purity that a talent show should have. People work hard on their talents, and I can only imagine what it feels like to them to constantly lose to people with sob stories.Imagine if this happened in, say, gymnastics at the Olympics? What if the judges were extra generous to competitors who had a sad backstory? I know I shouldn't expect fairness from Britain's got talent, but some standards would be nice.I'm just venting really, what do you guys think?
DJ and producer, Avicii, was found dead, age 28, in Oman. Some of his famous songs include Levels, Wake Me Up, Hey Brother, Waiting for Love, X You, I Could Be The One and Without You.Avicii is probably my favourite music producer, and I was very sad he had to die at such a young age. What are your thoughts on him?

The DNC has decided to perform a publicity stunt where they are suing Wikileaks, Russia, and Donald Trump out of pure stupidity. Now they, the DNC, Hillary Clinton, Obama, Lynch, the whole gambit...are fair game for investigation by the defense.https://youtu.be/p5QPb7yPgjEhttps://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/politics/democratic-party-files-lawsuit-alleging-russia-the-trump-campaign-and-wikileaks-conspired-to-disrupt-the-2016-campaign/2018/04/20/befe8364-4418-11e8-8569-26fda6b404c7_story.html
You adulterers! Don't you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)http://biblehub.com/james/4-4.htmDo not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. http://biblehub.com/matthew/10-34.htmOr do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.http://biblehub.com/1_corinthians/6-9.htmhttp://biblehub.com/1_corinthians/6-10.htm
