I've met quite a few users when I've traveled around Europe, and NUMY when I was at MSU.  I'll be staying a night at Lewis's apartment in July before I fly back to the States Smiley

I am always happy to meet more Atlasians! Rest assured, you will definitely get *hughughug*

wow rude

I once thought Rochambeau was in my Spanish class. It was a terrifying few days before I could sort that out.

Sorry dude, but there wasn't really a legion of Republicans or Democrats adamantly calling for its removal before this.

South Carolina has been banned from hosting NCAA tournament games for two decades because of the flag. Stop making things up.

Never trust an Indian with a white person's name that they chose for themselves.
11  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Foreign Languages Taught in US Public Schools on: June 21, 2015, 07:07:55 pm
Spanish, French, Mandarin, Arabic, Russian

You can make allowances for Japanese or whatever if you want, but I can't imagine the utility of teaching German or Italian.

Obviously LeBron was by far the best player on the floor. Voting for anyone else is silly.

You know, none of this would have been an issue if the Supreme Court hadn't overturned under false pretenses the entirely legal decision of the Pacific region to dissolve itself permanently.

Whether Muslims have similar work to do, I'd say that's a can of worms that probably shouldn't be opened in this thread.

Why did you mention it, then?

I don't see why there would be any reason to fly the flag at half staff. In Germany they don't fly the Nazi flag at half staff when people die.

Obviously he was a terrible poster, but I enjoyed his contributions because the posts that were made to refute him were consistently high-quality posts from which I learned a great deal.

In order of how much I care at this time:

San Francisco Giants
Maryland Terrapins
Golden State Warriors
San Francisco 49ers
San Jose Sharks

I don't actively follow hockey but I know enough to have a conversation about it, and my interest in the NFL has dropped precipitously over the last year.

I don't know whether he'd be a worse person to work for or work with, but I'd certainly never want to interact with him in any context, social or otherwise. Like Richard Nixon but without the charisma. It's fitting that his unfounded paranoia led to his downfall.

21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Opinion of this quote on: June 11, 2015, 05:27:10 pm
Junior high school principal A. H. Lauchner, Champaign County, Illinois, 1951:

Quote
Through the years we've built a sort of halo around reading, writing, and arithmetic. We've said they were for everybody ... rich and poor, brilliant and not-so-mentally-endowed, ones who liked them and those who failed to go for them. Teacher has said that these were something "everyone should learn." The principal has remarked, "All educated people know how to write, spell, and read." When some child declared a dislike for a sacred subject, he was warned that, if he failed to master it, he would grow up to be a so-and-so.

The Three R's for All Children, and All Children for the Three R's! That was it.

We've made some progress in getting rid of that slogan. But every now and then some mother with a Phi Beta Kappa award or some employer who has hired a girl who can't spell stirs up a fuss about the schools...and ground is lost....

When we come to the realization that not every child has to read, figure, write and spell... that many of them either cannot or will not master these chores...then we shall be on the road to improving the junior high curriculum.

Between this day and that a lot of selling must take place. But it's coming. We shall some day accept the thought that it is just as illogical to assume that every boy must be able to read as it is that each one must be able to perform on a violin, that it is no more reasonable to require that each girl shall spell well than it is that each one shall bake a good cherry pie.

We cannot all do the same things. We do not like to do the same things. And we won't. When adults finally realize that fact, everyone will be happier...and schools will be nicer places in which to live....

If and when we are able to convince a few folks that mastery of reading, writing, and arithmetic is not the one road leading to happy, successful living, the next step is to cut down the amount of time and attention devoted to these areas in general junior high-school courses....

One junior high in the East has, after long and careful study, accepted the fact that some twenty percent of their students will not be up to standard in reading...and they are doing other things for these boys and girls. That's straight thinking. Contrast that with the junior high which says, "Every student must know the multiplication tables before graduation."

Quoted in Anti-intellectuallism in American Life by Richard Hofstadter, 1963.

Obviously this won't mean anything to those of you who weren't around back in 2009, but for the people who were, just think about that.

I know it's an American Elections website, but there really should be colors for foreign parties at this point. The international elections board is pretty sizable.

The International Elections board is for discussing foreign elections, not for posting your political views.
