It is canon and written by Kawahara himself. It didn't get published in the LN itself, since the publishers wanted to keep it 13+, but Kawahara himself did write that chapter.

Just google SAO chapter 16.5 and click the first ( fanfiction.net ) link. Having read both the original Extra Chapter and the one in the link, I can say for certain they are identical. The original was indeed written by SAO's author.

People who call themselves atheists are aligning with a like-minded group of people with similar beliefs under the same group name.

If you don't want religion, just say you aren't religious.

So you are saying exactly the same thing but in english instead of greek. The word atheism doesn't define a community, it defines a concept.
User avatar #82 - warbob (08/22/2015) [-]
I used to think that's what atheism is as well, but if you look into it, you'll find out it can adequately be described as a "belief no god exists" .

Atheism is about denying the existance of a god, without any proof of it's own claim. In a sense, it's the exact opposite of a religion, but it's also quite similiar if you think about it.

Not going to look it up, those that make claims have to support it. Not my job to research your claims.

But let's say it's to keep people out of poverty. Ok, math time.

Fed Minimum wage is $7.25.
40 hour work week.
7.25 * 40 = 15,080. Before Taxes.

Federal Poverty Line is $11,770. ( www.healthcare.gov/glossary/federal-poverty-level-FPL/ )

Therefore, 15,080 is Above the poverty line. In theory we should lower their wages then.

Now of course the poverty line moves with the number of people in the household. So....What are you claiming here? Should your wages be determined by how many people live in your house? If I have 5 people in my house, the poverty line is now 28,410. So should my wages add up to be 28,410? Do my wages go up based on how many people are living with me/how many kids I have? Cause I'll start poppin some out if that's the case.

Or can we continue to pay people what they are worth/ the job they are doing?

BUT BUT BUT PEOPLE HAVE FAMILIES AND WORK THESE JOBS. Ok....Let's copy and paste...." enough for a person working on full hours to be able to support themselves without any outside funds" Themselves. Not a family. People need to start taking responsibility for their actions. I know tons of people that work minimum wage jobs or just above that and all have families. Yet, I'm 31, college grad, no kids, nice car, live with my GF, run my own company.....and I'm supposed to....what...pay my friends more for being dumb? Getting their GFs pregnant at 17? Having MORE THAN 1 CHILD at 24 years old?

Everyone loves to say they deserve more money. Cool....what have they done to deserve it? I'm 100% for a minimum wage too but as I stated before, raising it now isn't a solution. Get us more jobs, that will help EVERYONE, until the idiotic Government does what's right, we all have to suffer through it.
User avatar #512 - warbob (08/21/2015) [-]
I completely agree with you, the minimum wage should be able to support the person who earns it, without any extra calculations.

From there on, it is on their own accord whether they form a family and with whom and how many children result out of it. But regardless of those details, their wage should not change. The gov giving some sort of support for the child is acceptable though, stuff like paying for it's education, healthcare and etc. , which are already happening (more or less).

I've done it. It is possible and you can still be quite comfortable. Just don't do stupid stuff and manage your limited funds. I had a small apartment, never had to miss meals, slow but working internet, and an old trac-phone. I also managed to save $2000 dollars that I spent on getting some basic classes to get me into a slightly better paying job. It isn't that hard, you just have to actually think about what you are buying.
User avatar #431 - rampagindragon (08/20/2015) [-]
Good on you. I know I don't have that kind of willpower. But I still don't think this argument is completely valid as to why minimum wage absolutely should not be raised. While I agree with the original comment of this thread completely, I also agree that minimum wage is extremely hard to live off of and should probably be increased to some degree (probably not to 15 bucks but I honestly don't know). You didn't miss meals, but what were your meals? Did you have enough money to cook yourself a nice dinner a couple times a week or did you eat roman noodle tier food most of the time? You also must have found a place that was pretty cheap, which from what I can gather is pretty difficult these days. Also assuming you worked full time for minimum wage and never really spent any money on material stuff to make yourself happy (video games, books, etc. etc.) I'm surprised you weren't thoroughly depressed during the process. I know I would have been if I had to live off of 15k a year, which is why I think people shouldn't have to live off of that much. Whether it be increased by a job surplus so that people could ask for more money or an increase to minimum wage, something is needed. Getting anywhere in life off of 15k a year with a full time job is out of the question for most people. You see that don't you?
User avatar #481 - synthane (08/20/2015) [-]
I definitely see what you are saying and I agree it is not a reasonable life for most people to get by on minimum wage. That said, raising the minimum wage has little long-term effect for remedying this. In the short-term, the minimum wage earning folks will be able to purchase more with their increased income. However, the prices of goods will soon after raise in a proportionate amount to return their spending capabilities to where it previously was. This is essentially the basis of inflation.

That is not to say that raising the minimum wage does absolutely nothing. The period of time, thought to be roughly between one and three years, where the minimum wage earners have increased spending capabilities is a window of opportunity for them to improve their situation. They will suddenly be able to purchase nicer clothes for interviews or afford vocational education. As a result, they can improve their position in life before they drop back down to where they originally were. For the people with a drive to improve, that is their golden ticket. For the others, it is a few years where they can party a bit and then go back to their old ways later on.

The major downside of raising the minimum wage is during those years, people who have worked harder, gained better education, or whatnot will have comparatively decreased benefits from their efforts. This has been shown to result in a semi-long term reduction in the number of people seeking higher levels of education, as they have seen it doesn't pay off as much as it used to. Of course, this evens out again over the course of about a decade.

Everything I have already said is based on my studies, but what follows is more of my thoughts on the matter.

Honestly, it is a difficult situation as to whether or not an increase is needed. Personally, I think an increase in number and availability of government scholarships and grants or nearly interest-free loans for practical vocational education and certificates would be more beneficial than an increased minimum wage. They would need to be sufficiently large that someone could maybe work part-time when studying without needing to panic over their finances while they are getting their certificate. I think that the belief that a college education to do much is not necessarily true and that vocational degrees can be just as effective for many careers. Rather than purely government funded, maybe incentives can be offered for individuals or associations to provide scholarship opportunities as well.

I am of the belief that people don't need to be paid more for doing the same thing, they should be given the opportunity to improve their capabilities and be paid more for doing better work. Even in the case of fast food restaurants this is prevalent. A huge chunk of the time I go into a McDonalds half of the staff is standing there doing nothing. That really isn't necessary. If they could be given the ability to further educate themselves or improve on their skillsets, they could work more effectively elsewhere. A country-wide change like that would be very noticeable. An increase in quality and supply of pretty much everything means everyone would be better off in the long-term.

I dunno, maybe those last two paragraphs were too optimistic. In any case, I agree that something should be done. I just don't think the minimum wage is the entire answer, though it may be helpful if used in conjunction with something else.

I can't manage to find the time to make a search for it atm, so if you want a citation please look it up yourself.

But overall, the basic idea of what a minimum wage is the amount of money that is supposedly enough for a person working on full hours to be able to support themselves without any outside funds. How did you think they determine what the minimum wage should be? It's basicly someone deciding "no matter what, a payment below this is unlawful because it does not allow the said person to continue working on it for a long period of time, due to insufficient funds. It is essentially exploiting the worker. "

if the minimum wage is supposed to cover the standard of living, then what wage do the teenagers get when they work summer jobs?

minimum wage is for extra spedning money. its made for jobs that dont require skills so younger people can develop a work ethic. When you get to the age where you need more money, your supposed to have developed enough work experience, either through trade or school.

>>#467,

imo there should indeed be a seperate minimum payment for part time jobs. But for full time ones, that is indeed what the minimum wage should be. After all, otherwise it would mean that someone is labouring for 8-12h / day , combined with 8h of sleep it results in an inability to work another job unless it's part time. Hence, if you're working a full hour job you should be getting enough to survive.

You're right. The problem is people confuse needs and wants. Minimum wage is enough to support you, but its gonna suck like balls. No eating out, no entertainment, no family, the shitiest apartment possible, most likely no computer or TV. Clothes food water and shelter are what people have to have. Everything else is optional.

I also managed to save $2000 dollars that I spent on getting some basic classes to get me into a slightly better paying job. It isn't that hard, you just have to actually think about what you are buying.

Good on you. I know I don't have that kind of willpower. But I still don't think this argument is completely valid as to why minimum wage absolutely should not be raised. While I agree with the original comment of this thread completely, I also agree that minimum wage is extremely hard to live off of and should probably be increased to some degree (probably not to 15 bucks but I honestly don't know). You didn't miss meals, but what were your meals? Did you have enough money to cook yourself a nice dinner a couple times a week or did you eat roman noodle tier food most of the time? You also must have found a place that was pretty cheap, which from what I can gather is pretty difficult these days. Also assuming you worked full time for minimum wage and never really spent any money on material stuff to make yourself happy (video games, books, etc. etc.) I'm surprised you weren't thoroughly depressed during the process. I know I would have been if I had to live off of 15k a year, which is why I think people shouldn't have to live off of that much. Whether it be increased by a job surplus so that people could ask for more money or an increase to minimum wage, something is needed. Getting anywhere in life off of 15k a year with a full time job is out of the question for most people. You see that don't you?

I definitely see what you are saying and I agree it is not a reasonable life for most people to get by on minimum wage. That said, raising the minimum wage has little long-term effect for remedying this. In the short-term, the minimum wage earning folks will be able to purchase more with their increased income. However, the prices of goods will soon after raise in a proportionate amount to return their spending capabilities to where it previously was. This is essentially the basis of inflation.

That is not to say that raising the minimum wage does absolutely nothing. The period of time, thought to be roughly between one and three years, where the minimum wage earners have increased spending capabilities is a window of opportunity for them to improve their situation. They will suddenly be able to purchase nicer clothes for interviews or afford vocational education. As a result, they can improve their position in life before they drop back down to where they originally were. For the people with a drive to improve, that is their golden ticket. For the others, it is a few years where they can party a bit and then go back to their old ways later on.

The major downside of raising the minimum wage is during those years, people who have worked harder, gained better education, or whatnot will have comparatively decreased benefits from their efforts. This has been shown to result in a semi-long term reduction in the number of people seeking higher levels of education, as they have seen it doesn't pay off as much as it used to. Of course, this evens out again over the course of about a decade.

Everything I have already said is based on my studies, but what follows is more of my thoughts on the matter.

Honestly, it is a difficult situation as to whether or not an increase is needed. Personally, I think an increase in number and availability of government scholarships and grants or nearly interest-free loans for practical vocational education and certificates would be more beneficial than an increased minimum wage. They would need to be sufficiently large that someone could maybe work part-time when studying without needing to panic over their finances while they are getting their certificate. I think that the belief that a college education to do much is not necessarily true and that vocational degrees can be just as effective for many careers. Rather than purely government funded, maybe incentives can be offered for individuals or associations to provide scholarship opportunities as well.

I am of the belief that people don't need to be paid more for doing the same thing, they should be given the opportunity to improve their capabilities and be paid more for doing better work. Even in the case of fast food restaurants this is prevalent. A huge chunk of the time I go into a McDonalds half of the staff is standing there doing nothing. That really isn't necessary. If they could be given the ability to further educate themselves or improve on their skillsets, they could work more effectively elsewhere. A country-wide change like that would be very noticeable. An increase in quality and supply of pretty much everything means everyone would be better off in the long-term.

I dunno, maybe those last two paragraphs were too optimistic. In any case, I agree that something should be done. I just don't think the minimum wage is the entire answer, though it may be helpful if used in conjunction with something else.

it's my personal space for doing absolutely nothing. Occasionally (once a year on average) someone else comes.

User avatar #25 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
well you kind of started a massive fight by calling me out on thumbing down the game :/
User avatar #26 to #25 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
wasn't my intention , I asked because someone already said it on chat and...
sorry
User avatar #27 to #26 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I'm not mad at you. I'd been meaning to say some stuff about encomp for a while now, but the fact of the matter is that I've never called someone out for thumbing unless I sincerely wanted their critique in order to make it better.
User avatar #28 to #27 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
just wanted to speak with you , I pretty much said what I wanted already. I'm not supporting him , I honestly don't care much. You guys can have your civil war on the board, time will pass and it will be long forgotten.
User avatar #29 to #28 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I don't want a civil war. the only thing you could call me angry or passionate about in this whole ordeal is that the reason the board was essentially dead in the first place is because he killed it. look back and you'll see what I'm talking about.

About the game, though, it's off topic. I may not necessarily like the idea about it but that's beside the point. what you guys as players should do is what languagexplain, myself, and a few others wound up doing. petition to get a forum gaming board or something for games like that.
User avatar #30 to #29 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
yeah , at some point I realised it's not exacly /tabletop/ gaming either. Trying to get in contact with addy or smt to propose the board to be renamed to /tabletop & roleplaying/ if the users agree and stuff.
User avatar #31 to #30 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I honestly know of games similar to this that wouldn't fit that bill either. I've wanted to post them before, but to be entirely honest, I don't want to pollute the board (unlike someone.) I sincerely think games should deserve their own board.

in case you're wondering, one game I had wanted to start is called king of the hill. the goal is essentially to take the hill (it gets increasingly more absurd as it goes on)
User avatar #32 to #31 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
sounds good. Perhaps we'll make roleplaying a part of the board at some point so all that stuff is actually ontopic.

However it'd be quite hard to make the people stop playing the nation builder and from what I've seen the mods aren't seeing it as an infringement of the rules either.
User avatar #33 to #32 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
never said you guys should stop, I just think it should be moved. one mod did recommend that he move it to his profile.
User avatar #34 to #33 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
I suppose it's a possibility.
But we still have the problem with the lack of people on the board. The cause for them being so low atm aside, we need active people on the board now.
User avatar #35 to #34 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I've been trying to get more people using it. I haven't got many ideas for what to do as of yet. maybe having rikter post a painting guide and doing some "newbie friendly" character creation guides
User avatar #36 to #35 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
guides on creating characters sounds good , but tabletop gaming itself doesn't provide that many topics for conversation imo.
User avatar #37 to #36 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
believe it or not it's more than rpgs. cardgame deckbuilding threads, wargame army threads, character design threads, campaign detail threads, LFG (looking for group) threads, game-design threads, et cetera.
User avatar #38 to #37 - warbob (08/28/2014) [-]
well nation building and etc. is roleplaying imo , so I can figure out a lot of stuff that can happen within a roleplaying board.
User avatar #39 to #38 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I sincerely still think a games board would be better suited for your needs, because you can argue that roleplays are games, but you can't argue that checkers or go fish are roleplays

Why do we all try?
In the end we'll all die
The same outcome for all
The tall and the small
For the people who think they are worthless
And for the rich people who have no sense
To see their lives will end too
And there's nothing they can do
You can't buy your way out of death
One of life’s hardest test
Some people's lives end fast
Like in a shooting or a crash
Their lives are over in a flash
Their friends all mourn
Their family is torn
