    Why do dragons hoard gold?


    not a joke or trick question. I'm reading Grendel and that's the life-goal advice this all knowing all powerful dragon gives the main character: Collect gold and sit on it.

    But a dragon can't spend money. Maybe it's to lure tasty knights? I dunno.

    They listen to too much right-wing talk radio, mebbe?

    Damn.

    I was listening to the Weekly Standard conservative podcast as I read this, chuckled, then got goosebumps when realization of the irony set in.

    Here's a situation:

    Let's say that there is a project in which students are invited to volunteer. The project involves 5-6 hours a week of practice (that is cca 3 hours of actual practice, and the rest is preparation and paperology) and 1 supervision a week (90 mins). Let's say that the rule was set at the beginning of the year in which a volunteer can only miss 2 supervision meetings max within a given year.

    Let's say that one of the volunteers is also an avid amateur dancer who performs on dancing shows a few times a year. And let's say that she already missed two supervisions in 4 months (once she was sick, the second time was sister's wedding or something, don't remember clearly) - and now, the date of her next dancing show is suddenly changed so that it's at the same time as a supervision meeting. This means that she either has to break the rule and miss her third supervision, risking to be kicked out of the project, or cancel her dance performance and risk messing up her dance group and future participation in it.

    My questions for you are:

    1) if you were the supervisor, would you kick her out of the project if she chooses the dance show, or would you make an exemption? Why?

    2) if you were the volunteer-dancer, which choice would you make? Knowing that choosing one most likely means losing the other.

    Are those excuses real, and confirmed?.Because if she was sick why she would be forced to go when she was sick(im guessing real sick not just a headache) also a sister wedding would be a valid excuse.Again im assuming those excuse are real and confirmed, also that being sick means having something serius

    Let's assume that they are real. First, to prove it wrong you would have to start acting like police, second and more relevant, these are volunteers. They are there because of their own choice, there was no pressure on them, and also no material benefits. They chose to join because they value the extra experience.

    Btw. I'm not asking for advice, it's just a situation I witnessed and it's in the past now. I'm simply curious about what choice would ENTJs make from either perspective.

    I enjoy that sort of thing
    I also would have been interested in hearing any criticisms.

    I don't think there was any malicious intent on the part of the OP, quite the reverse, but it does open the door for troll-y, insulting posts.

    Viewed from a broader scope:

    **If left open, it might encourage others to randomly open similar threads about other members.

    **Although it didn't bother me, others may be more sensitive to criticism, and had the thread been started about them, might have been perceived as an attempt at bullying. Worse, a thread like this could be opened with that intent.

    **From a moderator's perspective: imagine the potential for number of reported posts by others on my behalf that would have to be sorted out.

    **For ease in administering this sort of thing, rather than taking it on a case by case basis, it's probably wiser to see the broader, general potential for trolling and have a blanket policy of shutting this sort of thing down.

    Full disclosure here, I'm the one who reported it to the mod staff for the reasons given above.
    @BIGJake111 Oh, so you're saying that the "Random Thoughts Thread" is just thinly veiled code for "MsBossyPants Appreciation Thread", I like it. I guess all threads in the forum only relate to ENTJs as a whole then? ;) I'm kidding thanks for the reply.

    @MsBossyPants I'm someone who enjoys a good roasting too and I have no problem with criticism, but I prefer it when reasons are given. I'll take what I can from it and discard (to a greater or lesser extent) the rest.

    I think the points you make about that thread potentially setting a dangerous precedent for abuse are good ones, even if in your individual case it would have been a lot of fun. I guess I'll have to find other avenues for expressing my admiration, you got snapchat? ;) haha
