Be nice if parents were paid for the time they had to take off to attend these meetings. Sadly though, mundane things such as rent, food, and bosses who don't give a damn about personal life get in the way. For example, have you ever seen this parent/teacher things scheduled at any other times than what is convenient for the teachers? Why not 9am for night shift workers, 7pm for dayshift workers, and 1am for second shift workers?

Allies are supposed to refrain from bugging each other's leaders' phones.

Where in "Handbook for Allies" does it say this? Friends don't keep secrets from friends, they share information so they can form a united front against those that would use secrets to drive a wedge between them.

You know what really sucks about this? I truly think Japanese women are about the sexiest women on the planet! I wonder how many millions of them would have died swinging bamboo poles at the millions of multiracial troops that would have been invading their shores had the Empire not surrendered?

terror bombing and the mass muder in Hiroshima and Nagasaki 45

My father was scheduled to be landing on the beaches of Japan to force their surrender in WW2. If not for the atomic bombs that lead to Japan's capitulation he, my siblings, my children, and my grandchildren may very well not be here today. There is no way you can make me feel sorry for the killing of thousands that saved the lives of millions.

Just fuck off. You want to track others but do not want to tracked yourself. What makes you so special that gives you the right to ignore anonymous posters but makes you expect to remain anonymous yourself. And fuck Dice for allowing such a privacy invading person such as your self for being modded so high.

You are right, all that you just said is above my head and I'm in no mood to research it. To me it is simple, you want anonymity but refuse to respect that rights of others who want the same. I've been using Slashdot since before 2000, and some of the most informative and insightful posts come from those who can only post anonymously. Governments kill and people ostracize those who post unpopular things. For you to purport to want anonymity but refuse to respond to the anonymous is the pinnacle of hypocrisy.
