It is. When he is stating how violations will terminate the contract, he uses a rough German accent. When asking you to pay particular attention to a part he has a very staccato delivery that is quiet and forces you to strain to hear. It is a very good example of method acting and delivery. Unfortunately, without video you really are missing out on the performance.

Turning it in and then getting it back the next day? Responsible Parenting? Lies! With no kids myself, I can only offer tech to my 3 nieces as their parents see fit. I think teens is a good age, but as always, it depends on when the child can show responsible behavior. Many College students in my town are not responsible enough to own phones.

Comment Ride the Rails (Score 1) 1385

Our country is unique in the fact that people don't tend to live more than an hour away from their work. This would mean that each trip would be very short, eliminating the benefit of high speed rails.

I would love to see high-speed rail though, if only for long trips. Getting to see other parts of the country in a day rather than 2 or 3 days would energize the travel businesses.
