Re: Think Before Naming Your Child

I knew one kid named "Tucker" who had a speech impediment. He pronounced T's as F's. I still feel sorry for him.

With the African Athletes- Over thousands of years of living in a physically challenging environment, people begin to adapt to survive. Borrowing a quote from Slate.com: "Author John Manners, who has trained with the Kalenjins on their home turf, has opined that the tribe's cattle-herding backg...

Re: Black Athletes

This may be a tad off topic, but we just learned about this in history. The reason why black people (At least American ones) are better athletes is because of selective "breeding" from when they were slaves. The slave masters wanted better slaves, who were stronger, and more adapt at physi...

Re: Christianity and Evolution

To be fair, I never said that morality was only obtainable through religion. I merely said that it had a better foundation. And, to clarify my statement on the existence of God is, "Because we have no solid proof to suggest or deny the existence of God, it is irrational to assume that there is ...

Christianity and Evolution

After searching through the board for a little while, I didn't see anything that really answered my questions here, so here it goes. Recently, my parents transfered me to a Christian school because a few of the programs that they had were better than anything else in the area. So, last year in biolo...

Re: Stupid classmates

One kid, in my AP US history class said this- "In the Revolutionary War, the Northerners would carry slaves to freedom on an underground train." The teacher laughed for 5 minutes. In the same class, this happened- Teacher: Now when a slave would escape, the owner would cut off a foot, to k...

Re: Teachers that cannot teach

In school, I decided to take an introduction programming class. The programming teacher assigned us 5 hours of busy work each night ("I want you to make pseudocode and flowcharts for these 15 programs I created. Ok. Due tomorrow"), and his assignments were pointless. I finally got one of m...

I train at a Shudokan school, but we use a little bit of everything, Shotokan, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, all of that. But I really love weapons. Sai is awesome. I'm currently training for my 2nd degree test with them.

Re: Wearing a helmet during alpine activities.

Ok, I fail to see the issue here... Why not wear a helmet? It can save your LIFE. You only get one shot at living, so I'd protect it at all costs. But if you want to be an idiot, then by all means go out and ride with no helmet. If you die, better chances for me to succeed. Natural selection for the...

Yeah, just like that. The teacher wants you to 'identify' the person. But for the first week or so, nobody knew what she was talking about. She still likes changing history. Carter is one of her heroes.

Ok, I'm sorry, but how stupid are you? When you registered, you lied about your age, just to come in to say, "I'm younger than 13." Think before you talk. It will keep you story straight.
