This one lol

The Bulgarian mobile phone number - 0888 888 888 - has been suspended after every person who used it in the past 10 years died. The last man to own it was gunned down outside an Indian restaurant in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.

Yesterday, Li Hai, a 19-year-old employee of the firm, jumped from the top of the building in Shenzhen to his death.

Efforts to lift the mood of despair on the factory floors began in earnest yesterday. Workers were played supposedly soothing music as the assembly line rattled along. Foxconn said it would recruit 2,000 singers, dancers and psychiatrists to help its staff to relax.


they had a party to celebrate by the sound of it........must be the trolls of the factory eh

or they could just let them have a tea break once in a while....

I worked in a factory for 7 years, and do you know why I left? They put the local radio station on for the last 2 years instead of Radio 1.

I was mm-bopped to the brink of madness. seriously they played that everyday for years, sometimes twice a shift. When I think of that song, I cant help but imagine myself loading a shotgun, putting the cartridges in one by one verrrry slowly with a twisted grin on my face.

cuckoo. cuckoo.

Ha Ha. I was the same a few years ago. They played the local radio station here, probably the same company that owns yours. They would play the big songs of the day hourly without fail so in a single shift you would hear the same songs 8 times at least but even worse than that, despite the thousands of popular songs of the past 3 decades they would still play the same "classics" over and over too - arrrrgh pass me that shotgun...

Besides, whats 10 little suicides against the millions of satisfied Apple fans in their brave new future world (they can prob buy an app to keep score).:whistling:

I like how you didn't succeed at the game of life, so look to change the rules and blame people like Thatcher.

They've installed nets around the building:thumbsup:

It would be lovely if they could reduce the hours they had to work, or increase their pay or even change the repetitive nature of the work - but Apple would have to pay more, so they'd have to lay off staff elsewhere or increase the price which would probably reduce sales which would also lead to sacking staff....

I blame Thacher:thumbsup:

accused me of being a stalker
wished me dead
said that i "suck at life"

i have already reported you for the first
the second comment was so incredibly riduculous and verging on insane i let it slide (who would want to wish a stranger on an internet forum dead?!)
the third well..... the way i see it, i have bought up two wonderful children single handedly, they are beautiful, honest, polite and extremely intelligent. i hardly calling that sucking at life. i call it being incredibly good at it :)
i will be reporting you again if this harrasment doesn't stop

I wonder how many people need to die? 15, 20,100 1000 before "It would be lovely if they could" changes to "It is necessary to" or is there not upper limit.

I am sure your arguments would be recognised by the Victorian business men who argued that factories in this country needed children working in them to run efficiently.

Well, you tell me which area you'd like to cut jobs in and maybe we'll be able to talk realistically.

You tell me how many herrings you will kill, skin and wear as clothing and maybe we'll be able to talk realistically. :thinking:

This makes about as much sense as your statement.:thumbsup:

I can see you clearly are not comfortable to debate unless you set all the rules.

The only rule I want is for it to be realistic - you know, so if you raise costs in one area they have to be offset in another.

Basic business stuff :thumbsup:

Not true, you could squeeze your profit margin.
BTW your idea or realistic seems to be to agree with everything you say.

This story is possibly about a work place that is so inhuman that it is causing people committe suicide. You seem to see this as just a matter of profit and loss.

It does seem to me you have lost a lot of your humanity in this argument.

Profits fall then stocks drop and people who have Apple shares lose 'money', so they may reduce spending and someone else in another company may lose their job.

That's the way capitalism works.

As for my humanity, I probably give more money to charity in a year than you earn, but I'm not going to lose sleep over people who work in a factory in China committing suicide. I doubt you have either.
