I don't think he was incorrect that "their rights stopped where his started", I think he just doesn't realize where his rights actually start.
I agree, which is why I think Go is the best board game. Easy enough for a 2 year old to learn, complex enough that computers still lag far behind professionals.
To add to this, Go also uses both hemispheres of the brain. There is the logical aspect of the game, where you read out a sequence of moves, and there is also the visual pattern aspect, where a player will look for moves that make "good shape", or will look for other patterns on the board that have their own traits.
No, please reread my post, this time more carefully. I address everything you said in your post. The way he worded his post was a deliberate troll, much the same way referring to Jesus as "zombi-jesus" [sic] is also a deliberate troll.
You are missing his intent. Tweeting on Christmas day and starting your tweet as "On this day long ago, a child was born who, by age 30, would transform the world." is an obvious attempt at misdirection where most people (non-Christians included) would assume is is talking about Jesus. Then to suddenly reveal you are really talking about Issac Newton is a way of playing a joke on the reader. No one would bat an eye if he had tweeted "Happy birthday to Issac Newton!". But instead he drew obvious parallels to Jesus in an attempt to misdirect, and bring up the topic of Christmas while making a point of ignoring it. This joke he played on the reader is why people are upset. It was a dick thing to do, and he should not be surprised that this upset some people.
I agree. The most important part of discipline is not the method, but the consistency. Your method of punishment will change with each child. Some children respond better to time outs, some respond better to early bed time, etc. But the key is to have well defined rules, and to be consistent in punishment when those rules are broken. It's the well defined boundaries that help children develop.
Seriously. Neolithic people dying at age 20? So that gives humans at the time only a few years from when they hit puberty until they die to have and [begin to] raise children? I can hear the kids now: "My parents were so old when they died, I actually vaguely remember them!"
To be honest, I wasn't even considering the annual flu vaccine when I typed my response. I was talking about vaccines that you get as a young child that last for the rest of your life.
That would be good, except how would someone know that another person in public and not vaccinated?
"I am so glad I didn't get my little Johnny vaccinated. Sure, he died of Measles when he was 3, but at least he didn't catch the autism!"
While I think not getting vaccinated is incredibly stupid, I also worry about setting a standard of the government being able to force things in to your body.
Maybe you can clarify, I am genuinely confused at your statement - If my child goes to LAUSD, who pays for that? I assume it comes out of taxes, to which I contribute. Now maybe I misunderstood the parent post, but if I choose to send my kid to private school, I then need to pay both the private school and LAUSD? So I am essentially paying tuition 3 times? I guess I don't understand what you mean when you say you are paying back your child's education before they even have one.
I like this better when it was called Sega Channel
Let me know when I can get a discount in my service. I might let Verizon track me if it meant a direct discount. Until then, I'll pass.
If I am hearing correctly, this guy was signed up for 105 megabits per second... Do you know how hard it is to use 105 megabits/second? Netflix in HD only uses up 5... unless this guy has a family of 20, with each person watching HD content, 105 Megabits/second is a waste of money. I mean granted, maybe some people here can tell me how a single family home can use that much bandwidth (downloading several dozen torrents simultaneously?), but my family doesn't even use half of our 30 Megabit/second bandwidth.
