Both of these quotes address a problem I run into a lot with my students. They see or read something on the internet and believe it without question and when you try to prove to them it was a hoax, spoof, parody, or just false information, they fight you tooth & nail. I ran into this with a research report I was having the kids do. I would tell them to show me the site/source of the information and of course they couldn't (usually because they saw it in passing and don't remember where they found it at.)

I won't even get into my family members who fall victim to this shit... that's a vicious cycle that will never end.

You can hardly blame technology for your student's inability to include sources in their research papers. That is most definitely the teacher's fault. That's your job to teach them the process of a proper research paper... Seriously. Students who are not taught that would make the same mistake in a library.

This is like a manager or supervisor talking about how bad his/her underlings are at their job... Uh well it's the supervisors actual job to make sure they are trained properly. It's a really foolish thing to say and is more telling of the supervisor's/teacher's ability to perform rather than the underling/student.

As if you knew what plural meant.

I bet, in real life - most people, meaning 95% of those who graduated with a HS diploma...would be asking you to repeat what you just said...after you just said, whatever in the fuck you just said.

Why? Cuz when you type, you're a halfway illiterate motherfucker, and when you speak, you're probably a full time, 100% illiterate motherfucker.

You couldn't spell chromosome if you didn't rely upon Google spell check. And most of the time you don't rely on spell check on your stories, at all.

How do I know this?

Experience reading your submitted crap. How you ever got granted any kind of Lush award is beyond spell and type like a fucking retard who graduated 4th grade and flunked 5th grade over the word - gradueighted.

Take it down a notch, sport. The alcohol isn't the only thing seeping out of your pores now. The jealousy is rearing it's ugly head too.

I was cheering you on. I even defended you against BiMale73's mockery... But now you're just being ugly. You know it pisses me off when you say "award". Add an S to that, it's plural.

That's what I always thought, but I'm gonna blame the SKY vodka and admittedly - drunken reading.

Point still stands Jackson. I prefer womenz...

SKY? Cheap... And you pluralized X chromosome so that would suggest you meant two X's... You're too stupid to even know when you're right.

So disappointing.

a) You do not have a dog in the fight. Proverbially or otherwise.

b) You don't really know what the fight concerns. Proverbially or otherwise (it's a dictionary, Jack - use it)

c) You are well practiced at talking shit...both talking it -- and typing it.

d) I have no fucking idea what you just attempted to mutter, and neither do 99.9% of the other thinking readers of this thread. Google Andy Griffith or Andy Griffin or Andy Griff - gawdamnit! Just use Google for fucks sakes. LMFAO

In this particular case, you should merely stare forlornly at your dog...

The topic is Cops Out Of Control. That alone does not even generalize. It's fairly specific. Out of Control does not imply a law enforcement officer who is acting like Andy Griffin - but more like fucking assholes who shot up Serpico.

Come'on man... get with the program.

Either recognize what we're espousing in this thread and join in - or admit that you or someone you care about is actively involved in (and gets paid by) law enforcement activities and thus you have an ox that is being gored and you're trying, vainly - to uphold their undeserved honor.

Blind hero worship is not what this thread is about. We're not rocking the good cops, but the bad ones...those who couldn't police lice control in their own pubic regions, let alone at a junior high school football game in the boondocks.

You, with your forlorn gaze at your dog is creepy enough...but you, and THAT, and your defense of the defenseless is as weird as toe lickers who prefer chipolte over cheesy guacamole sauce smeared upon the small toe.


get em old fella!

Yeah, but those sandwiches cost less than most meals at other places (like the ones that serve Breakfast all day), whereas the only thing I can do with the eggs is crack them on your head & be assured there's no brain damage...

Having had Lunch at McDonald's several days in the last 7, I can tell you if you think you're paying people to clean up, I can tell you it's better to put that money in the Ronald House charity collection, as local workers aren't doing what you think you're paying for.

I don't know how to respond to this. It's just stupid on many levels.

Try to eat more vegetables that aren't fried potatoes and real tomato ketchup and go with God.

I disagree. When I go to any of the stores where I buy my usual breakfast foods (a bit OCD on what I eat for certain meals certain days), if the store is out of the brand/type of waffles I usually buy there, I can't purchase them. If I go back the next day & they do, I can, but may have to move faster in-&-out due to having an appointment on my schedule that day.

Point being? Being able to purchase things there is also/still a matter of convenience, yet any day, I can use the governmental-assistance "money".

Not the same as someone preparing your food and cleaning up after you. A grocery store is the bare minimum convenience possible besides growing and raising your own food which you can not do realistically if you are on government assistance.

I'll add that for the price of 1 breakfast sandwich at Mcdonalds you can buy a dozen eggs.

This made me think about my last few POS transactions—I used my debit card, so no change was required.

Even cash is becoming an outdated technology. I'm not saying we're on the brink of doing away with cash altogether (although some think we are), but more businesses than ever are accepting card payments, and more people than ever are using cash as infrequently as possible.


I only use cash for three things really.

I always have a small roll on me for:

1. tipping bartenders, waitresses, chamber maids, single moms (strippers), doormen, valets etc. I may still pay my bill with my card but the tip will be in cash.

2. I will also use cash for gambling.

3. And lastly, I use cash for events like concerts and festivals.

3 1/2. I guess I will add one more and say I will use cash at shady gas stations or convenience stores.

The only one of those that actually requires a cashier transaction is the shady gas stations and convenience stores. And I don't care if the cashier is that motherfucker from A Beautiful Mind... Ring that shit up and give me the right change.

but if I go to McDonald's this afternoon (where they only sell things I can eat/drink), I can't use my "stamps"/card equivalent there.

I would imagine that is because you are also paying for service and convenience. Something that rightly, shouldn't be purchasable with government assistance programs.

It has nothing to do with allowing them to use technology or not. It has to do with the fact that they DON"T learn the basic adding and subtracting, multiplying or dividing first. they don't have the slightest clue if the calculator is actually giving them the correct answer. (it is just a machine after all.) by your logic, why should we teach kids to read or write when we have audio books, speaking menus and pictures of things they can point to? And your reference to making change in their head? Many schools have already stopped teaching cursive. I have seen some of these kids that can't even figure out what coins to give because it only displays a total amount to return. I used to stop many mornings at a McDonalds for a breakfast platter, since I took the toll road, I needed quarters. the total for the meal was 2.39 so i would give them 3.14, thus getting me .75 in change. they would take it and look at it without a clue until they put the amount in and saw that it was 3 quarters. and god forbid the computers go down and they have to manually figure change.

It also has nothing to do with the loss of "the good old days". I agree, the vast majority of people no longer need to know how to help a horse give birth or plow a field. it has to do with the dumbing down of students because they no longer know the most basic of the building blocks which are needed to truly understand the more complex ideas. if they have no concept of an inch, how can they judge a mile?

I do agree that there is also a need to learn the new technology, and it is a conundrum of what to cut, but in the long run, eliminating the very basic building blocks of education hurts every future generation.

BTW, I wonder how many kids even know what a protractor is used for?

That kid in McDonald's has to punch in the money you gave them to make the cash register open anyway... If they don't input the numbers they can't give you your 75 cents. Did you expect them to tell you, gee wiz that's 75 cents ma'am! Then put it into the register? Their drawers are counted at the end of their shift too. No matter what they are always going to input the numbers even if the change is a penny. In today's world every cent is counted and the cashier is held accountable. They don't care about impressing some lady in the drivethru... Plus it's not even the norm for people to give you more money than needed when paying anyway. When you're doing the same thing over and over again and all of a sudden someone gives you more money than needed it throws you off, you're not just gonna be like 75 cents!!! You probably wouldn't immedietly do it in your head either. It probably took you longer than a couple of seconds to get your money together yet you expect them to calculate it in less time. Especially when it's not a common thing.

Also if the computers go down at McDonald's then they stop service. No mcgriddle for you or 75 cents. It's not a general store... It's a well oiled machine, because of technology.

AND Watermelon or strawberries with Danish feta cheese.

This is actually quite good.

I love watermelon and feta skewers...especially with mint.

There's a place in my town that has an appetizer that is made of watermelon, mint, basil, pork belly and drizzled with a sweetened balsamic reduction. Sounds really weird but it's so damn good. Pretty easily replicated at home.

Upon further reading of associated articles, I learned that one of the morons (who resigned recently from the department) fired his taser and one of the prongs hit the side of the car, while the other prong hit the driver in his face.

That officer - Shawn Jurgens then had the audacity to blame the taser miss on the driver who he claimed was moving around wildly inside the vehicle as he was trying to aim and fire. (which we see in the video - did not happen that way at all).

These stupid bastards must forget that the camera sees everything - everything they apparently cannot see.

If a person is having a stroke, often one side of their body (usually the left side) becomes temporarily to permanently paralyzed. They aren't going to be able to speak, they might not even be able to understand what's being said to them. They aren't going to be able to move very well either, unless they are convulsing involuntarily.

All of the officers who engaged this person need to be reprimanded at the very least and removed from the streets. They are not fit to police jackshit.

I like when you have a little pep in your step. You get all fired up. All passionate.

Topic Best way to ask out someone?
Posted 26 Jul 2015 13:20

I've managed to enjoy myself whenever I've been and have often been called "a charmer".


What you achieve by asking a woman right off the bat if she has a boyfriend or is married is to make her uncomfortable. Without realizing you are going to ask her out she might say she doesn't... Now you ask her out and she doesn't want to go out on a date with your un-charming ass... Now she actually has to reject you because she just doesn't dig you. And we all know how some guys react to rejection... You take away her easy out in saying she is seeing someone. Not to mention the fact you are letting her know that you aren't even interested in her as a person unless there's a chance to get laid. It's just stupid.

Anyway... The good thing is this young blood cloudfox got his date. It seems to be going well for him too.

Topic Best way to ask out someone?
Posted 26 Jul 2015 12:55

There have been a number of good suggestions here. One fast way to find out IF she has a husband or Bf is to simply tell her "He's a lucky guy." And, when she asks "Who"" say "Your BF" THEN if she's says "Thanks I'll tell him" you know you're wasting your time... at the minute. From time to time you can casually ask IF she's still with that same lucky guy. IF she says she doesn't HAVE a BF or husband, ask her if she'd consider changing that and if she shows interest, take it from there in asking for a date.

Leading off with "do you have a boyfriend or husband" is about the stupidest way to ask a girl out. It really is.
