tip and change calculation is hardly advanced mathmatics, yet people who's job it is to do such math dont know how to do it without the computer (register) doing it for them.
that's the real reason people are bad at it. lack of practice. the more you practice, the more you retain it. most people studied it once, and then never again, which leads to a very quick very large regression. and most teachers cover math in a one concept a week way, with no tie backs to previous lessons. a reliance on calculators to do the previous stuff you already learned so you can focus ont he current lesson doesnt help either. its helpful on one hand to focus on the current lesson, but when the subject matter builds on previous lessons, it becomes a tradeoff, particularly if you then need to go back and demonstrate every piece of the process 2 and 3 or more years later on a comprehensive professional exam. students who do everything by hand, including the "easy, earlier" stuff retain it better and longer, and in my experience have had far less trouble passing those exams (and required fewer/no cram sessions with things like "the EIT for Dummies").
there's a bit of a difference beween stealing food because you're desperate and starving, and stealing a car or tv.
though it should be pointed out that no church or soup kitchen i've -ever- seen or heard of would -ever- turn away someone who wants to eat, and i've never found a town without either one yet.
Microsoft complains about Office being illegally downloaded a few hundred million times a year.
I'm kinda curious...how many whales do you usually find in your lakes and streams?
If I found a whale in my lake and I needed food, I reckon he'd keep me fed for over a year.
the first amendment is not broken.
the interpretation of financial/political contributions as unlimited speech is what is broken.
being unlimited means people with more of it effectively have a bigger voice, allowing a few to dominate the entire market.
contributions should go back to being limited, and limited severely.
50$ per person per candidate.
no corporate/pac donations.
no self-funded millionaires (self-contributions limited to the same amount as everyone else)
Force candidates to get contributions based on merit, and appeal. the risk is going too far the other direction (less oligarchy and corporate bought votes, more tyranny of the fickle, uneducated majority), but we have to do something to start moving the situation back to the middle of the spectrum.
cause you didnt buy it from a licensed dealer.
this will also stop person to person cragislist car sales.
now you need a dealer for that too.
we must close this auto show loophole!
and national instant background check to make sure you are of a fit mind and abaility to operate a vehicle *
for the children!
(* satire aside, thats actually probably a good idea)
its really simple: the only contributions allowed are individual contributions to specific canidates (not to parties), capped at some low level that puts Shantiqua the Maid on an even contributing field with Rupert Murdoch. Say, $50 per adult person per candidate.
no contributions frm companies.
no contributions from superpacs.
no public funds spent on campaigns.
no personal funds spent on campaigns by millionaires (they can only contribute to themselves the same amount as anyone can contribute)
if the yahoo is worth anything he's no longer a yahoo.
if he isnt, he wont get past the primary.
you dont seem to know much about how food gets on your plate do ya?
cooking isnt the cure all you think it is. things still get past cooking.
and do you like your steak well done? im guessing you dont. and if you dont, you are at serious risk for illness....except that we developed other means to keep our food chain healthy. things that allow us to consume undrcooked meat, to the point where today we can even enjoy medium rare pork steaks.
its a lot easier to innoculate a single beef cow against common parasites and disease, than it is to test and keep a few million grasshoppers (or bug of your choice), equivalent to the food potential of said cow, similarly parasite and disease free. and then come inspection time (assuming the USDA inspection hasnt been furloughed), its also easier to inspect a single side of beef to determine fitness, than it is to check those said few million bugs. about the only practice that would be as effective and easily applied to bugs as current foods is irradiation.

and there it is. you cant argue with him so you bring out one of your typical bashes. this is why you're nothing but a troll.
when you open up a rice beetle, inside you find lots of undigested rice (its why theya re eaten...its what you scoop out and eat)
now...imagine opening up a bug that been fed on sludge. and consider that your eating undigested sludge.
