Re: Teachers being trained to kill kids

I found this old livejournal (yeah I said it was old) blog post. It was posted right after Sandyhook about the problems with arming teachers. https://thefourthvine.livejournal.com/169841.html This paragraph especially got to me (emphasis mine): And these people can't just be trained a little. They h...

Re: The Darker Side of the News

Colorado to arm teachers in classrooms Okay, how long before a child dies because one of these guns is snatched, or goes off accidentally, or a teacher overreacts? This seems like a terrible idea in general, but apart from anything else it's a fucking 3 day course, for both firearms and medical tra...

Re: 1447: " Meta-Analysis"

Just about every teacher had multiple teachers (including several that specifically taught them to be teachers). So you could say every teacher is the end product of tens or hundreds of generations of this going backwards, implying many teachers from hundreds of years ago who were teachers of teach...

Re: 1436: "Orb Hammer"

Oh HELL no, we do not spread science illiteracy here. This is how it is, and I feel dirty having to post this. Don't be silly. The moon is only out at night - everybody knows that. The problem is that sometimes the sun comes out at night and tries to the moon out. People get so confused by this err...

Re: My quest for Excommunication

Actually, in my experience it is fairly common for people say the sort of things we're talking about to one another, even despite differences in religious beliefs. So I do have reason to believe that for most of the people that I have directly encountered it's considered acceptable bordering on exp...

Re: 988: "Tradition"

I have always wished the Red Clay Ramblers Hot Buttered Rum (by the late Tommy Thompson) would get air play at xmas time. It is not a xmas song per se but it does mention xmas. It is more a winter song and it is beautiful (though some might find it a little sad). I can't do links but you will find i...

Re: 0978: "Citogenesis"

Old joke: It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a new Indian Chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets, and when he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the weather was goi...

Crow or Rooster

I sometimes think I'd rather crow And be a rooster than to roost And be a crow. But I don't know. A rooster he can roost also, Which doesn't seem fair when crows can't crow. Which may help some. But I don't know. Crows should be glad of one thing, though; Nobody thinks of eating crow, While roosters...

Re: High School cancels Prom due to same-sex couple's existe

...Wow, and here I was thinking I was stating a grossly exaggerated example. Sorry about missing that post, by the way. But, wow, 2008? Truly baffling. Well we are talking about Mississippi, the State that continues to embarress itself, be backwards as fook --- see Civil Rights 1950-1970, be an eco...

Re: Pat Buchanan is a white supremacist.
