Oxford Educated, world traveler: I have lived in four different countries and worked in more. For the past ten years I have been living in Boston. I work as an expert witness in a very narrow field. Jobs are very few and far between. But the hourly rate is very high. So I make about the same working one week a month as I used to work full time. Chat room etiquette: I have been on the Web almost two decades and on the Internet longer. In the old days it was considered impolite to proposition someone in the first ten minutes. So if I don't immediately proposition you, ask to go private or suggest we get matching tattoos, please do not take that as a lack of interest ladies. I don't get offended and I know some women do not, but most seem to find it tiresome. I spend a lot of time online, but I also spend a lot of time in my workshop on arts projects. I have more tools than Norm Abrams. No seriously. I have tools that he does not, trust me. I started working in wood, but these days I am more into metal and plastic. I also do work with electronics and robotics. So if I am logged in but not responsive, I may have gone down to one of my workshops to tinker with something. Don't be offended if I don't respond.
Most of us do addition and subtraction using paper and pencil.This particular technique is designed for mental arithmetic. And if you do a lot of mental arithmetic, it is actually a very useful and powerful technique.The reason for doing it this way rather than carrying the 1 is that if you are doing mental arithmetic, there is a limited number of items people can remember and this allows for more efficient memory management.I don't particularly value number skills at this level. I do everything with paper and pencil at minimum and if there is more than ten numbers to add up, I open up a spreadsheet. Because it is so much easier to check.If the aim is to teach number skills that later transfer into algebra, then it is a legitimate approach. But expecting 3rd graders to understand that learning different computation algorithms is useful seems a little silly.
Dershowitz supports the use of torture and has on many occasions campaigned to prevent critics of Israeli government policy from getting tenure at US universities.There is a fog of fascism and it is called Alan Dershowitz.
Just watched today's 11 hour Democratic debate. WTF did the Republicans only invite Hilary? Bernie must be really pissed they didn't give him a chance to show up.
Finally! https://upload.lushstories.com/523591909-NewPM.jpg So Jon Snow isn't coming back to GoT, he cut the hair.
Native Americans face serious problems in their communities, the least of their issues is the name of a football team. And the reason racists want to keep the name 'Redskins' is precisely to remind native Americans of the social order in this country and their place in it. The fact that they can keep the name and nobody can do a thing about it is just like George Wallace shouting segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.If fights over symbols don't mean anything, allow me to take a big smelly crap on your flag and see whether you care or not.
Carson.. with Carli as VP. Trump as secretary of state... And Palin as secretary of Defense?Putin suggested the exact same thing.
Would his being a "believer" disqualify him from performing surgery on you? No gotcha intended, just curious. The problem is his rejection of scientific method and conclusions. Oh and incidentally, surgery is one of those areas where competence isn't necessarily a requirement for career advancement. Doctors bury their mistakes so a warm bedside manner is actually more important to career advancement than skill.When I see him suggesting that immigrants be required to work the fields for no pay, I have to ask if they will at least count as 3/5th of a person. The man is a serious kook.
Care to elaborate? I mean... really... I was interested in seeing what people thought. So you don't think sex addiction is real... explain you reason. There are various forms of addiction but what distinguishes them is the mechanism, not the focus. People who are addicted gamblers often kick that habit and then start another addiction. Gambling addiction has a different mechanism to alcohol addiction so there isn't a lot of crossover. But there is a huge crossover from alcohol to other substance abuse.What makes it an addiction is the inability to exercise judgement or control. So the folk who claim they have a program that is specific to sex addiction or Internet or pretty much anything that isn't a substance dependency are mostly charlatans.
Hilary...but why the fuck doesn't she she just come out? She announced she was running over a month ago. But right now her campaign is fine letting the Republicans form a circular firing squad and they don't really want to say very much about Bernie who is a nice enough chap but not really suited to the job.The election is over a year away.
The rules of the game are simple. The contestants are divided into two teams. Both teams perform on stage at the same time. Whichever team gets the most audience appreciation wins and gets to play the next round. Appreciation means 'money' which the audience throw onto whichever stage they find most entertaining. All the money from the audience goes into the pot. Half the pot is paid out...

"Bastard!" I turned to see the plastic cup exploding on impact, spilling a vivid red stain on the wall's white. A clean shaven man in a Tuxedo gawped at the remains of the missile that had been intended for him. Finding the assailant did not take very long. She was out on the balcony muttering obscenities under her breath. The snow had driven the rest of the party back indoors but...

[When I found that a journalist friend of mine had been to report on Iron Henge I was naturally anxious to read the story. After some persuasion she sent me the story spiked by her editor, followed a few weeks later by the (much longer) 'original draft'. Then when I mentioned that Lush was doing a fall equinox competition she sent me the 'extended edition' that follows. For obvious reasons,...

I thumbed through the sheaf of contact prints to see if Eve had been playing attention in class. All the institute staff knew Eve, she was a well-known professional model with a resume and portfolio to match. The cover model for the latest Victoria's Secret catalog and more besides. Many models talk about moving from the front of the lens to the rear as their looks fade, few succeed. Giving...

"I am as embarrassed about this as you." Lisa looked up at the tangled mess hovering at eye level. Two eyes on stalks protruded from the gyrating white tentacles. "I don't believe this." Lisa said in astonishment. "Believe me, I know.", the hovering mass replied, "Not to put too fine a point on it, I am called into existence by your collective disbelief." "I thought it was meant to...

Baz swiveled in his dual axis ergonotic chair flipping switches and pressing buttons in choreographed display of manual dexterity and physical agility. The control consoles stretched out in all directions forming a spherical cage like structure and the chair could tilt and turn in all directions to allow access to any one of them. Far below him, the revellers applauded and cheered as...

I took another look at the instant message from Mark. "Bastard!" I muttered to myself under my breath. The queue for the wine bar shuffled forward as a middle aged couple were shown to a table. At this rate it would be half an hour before I could get a drink. Not that I particularly wanted to start drinking at two o'clock in the afternoon. But the choices in Terminal C were...

Manchester 10th January 1840 The carriage came to a stop outside a red brick house with an octagonal tower rising above the entrance. Two gas lamps flickered either side of the door.

The coat he had ruined wrapping it round her to keep her warm must have cost five guineas...

Director's log: Day 223 Alcohol might have been the answer, if only there was some of it left. The beer ran out first, not that there was much of that to start with. A week later the liquor was all gone. That was over a month ago. The only way to make more would be to ferment some of the small stock of remaining grain. And that is reserved for a seed stock if we survive long enough...

"Watch out!" It was close to noon and the sun had been up seven hours at least. The field should have been safe enough: no visible shade for miles. Hearing Jex's shout, the woman stopped digging, turned to see the lumbering beast approaching and ran. At the sound of the call, the abomination turned and began shuffling in Jex's direction. He had his shotgun pointed at it just in case...
