Comment Obviously not true (Score 1) 190

The day after the "shoe bomber" tried to down a plane, we were all removing our shoes at the airport.

If it was actually possible to control critical plane functions via an ethernet jack under the seat, all electronic devices would be prohibited on board until further notice.
You can still get on board with a laptop and ethernet cable, so we know it's not actually possible to do what the guy and FBI seem to be claiming.

Comment Re:Aquisition of evidence (Score 1) 218

This is the defense trying to get evidence that contradicts the plaintiffs allegations.
Such as wearing a shirt with CUNT printed on it, then complaining for being called one after you labelled yourself.

And posting about your own sexual aggressiveness isn't the best idea either.

Comment Teacher isn't teaching (Score 1) 284

Your friend is teaching directly from textbooks and is asking students to do otherwise when they complete assignments?

Try actually teaching:
Go over the written material
Show an example (You know, the one that comes with the book that you are already using)
Create a similar but different project for the students to do based on the lesson in the book .
Grade and critique.
Listen to parents raise hell.
