    Bad timing. This debate is a couple of "white" people "doing something" lol It's an interesting piece. I hope the people who put it up never get sued for an idiotic reason like "the artwork made that guy decide to shoot people" or something similar.

    That isn't what the OP is saying. It's saying there's a benefit that's being lost as the skill is no longer being widely taught and learned. What's taking its place is also part of the problem, since it's largely reinforced "No Child Left Behind" leftovers taught on tablets and computers. I would settle for people developing penmanship of any kind.

    Nor have the responses to your observation, honestly, so we should just pretend we already hashed it all out :) * * * As for the OP, the big excuse I hear a lot for grown people not in a relationship is a lack of time. They don't want to invest time in getting to know someone, or in spending time with someone. I'm not talking decades of deep philosophical discussion. I mean that they would rather just walk up to the woman of their choice and get a yes or no on the spot, which they could then instantly cash in. This goes for the other side of the coin, too. People want what they want and they want it instantly, with as little effort as possible. So when I hear someone who wants to be a non-virgin and still is one at 25-30, it screams that they do not want to put forth any effort at all. That's bad on a micro scale (do you want to have sex with someone who makes you do all the work?) all the way to a macro one (if you wind up married, good luck with someone who thought of getting to know you as a terrible chore). There IS a stigma... just like people wonder about you if you've had three failed marriages, or if you're grown and working in fast food, or if you were in jail for some time, or live with your parents, or dropped out of HS, etc.. It's not that they automatically make you a bad person on their own. It's that they send up caution flags.

    I got this when I Googled girls with pens. I got other, more interesting pictures, but this one spoke to me. "Its" a great one, and it's very telling that she says she wants to escape the free world and go to a more "colorfull" one.

    The same could be said of people who think vaccines ruined everything. What's weird is that earlier you admitted you were fine with the vaccines themselves, just not the additives and poisons contained therein and the mandating of so many damned vaccines at such a young age (and, by extension, I'd imagine the easiest objection to cure would be to allow for opt-out of innocuous diseases that are now being vaccinated against for no good reason). * * * There's some truth in just about everything being said that isn't about personal insults or demonizing an entire swath of the country. Autism likely did exist before vaccines. It's fruitless to try to figure out precisely which cases of people acting certain ways were really autism, or would at least be categorized as such today. The diagnoses they were saddled with at the time are all we have to go on. It would be a hundred times more futile to argue that autism rates were anywhere near what they are today --- even accounting for a broadening of the spectrum and a much higher frequency of pediatrician visits where the physician is on the lookout for autism in youngsters. Something, or many somethings, obviously changed and contributed to a climb. Studies of "unvaccinated children" are usually not great. Even though I'm not going to whisper about conspiracies here, the main reason is that unvaccinated children are rare and could easily be categorized as endangered. Would you want your unvaccinated child to participate in an official study?

    Bought one of these when I was 16. I still use it for anything (semi) official. I still need to walk into a large sum of money so I can buy a gold one. But hey.. This is much better than a ball-point. Writing in cursive was mandatory in the first years of school, then later nobody cared anymore and very few people would write cursive. Let alone with a fountain pen.. I am generally the oddball so I decided to get a nice fountain pen and taught myself to write with it.. It wasn't a bad decision. I also have handmade paper and envelopes, wax for seals and some seal stamps... These days however, the women find that creepy... :p I still think it's how communication should be done. Oh and FUCK the mailman for breaking my seals!

    Which is why I am sure you will shortly rally to defend angelatc from someone naming her Angela in his post. You also may want to reread the posts in this thread belittling the "medical profession" (weren't you just pointing out sarcasm quotation marks...) as a bunch of profit-seeking monsters only interested in stringing people along to make a buck, dispensing pills and cashing big ole checks. This is not the first thread to do that, nor will it be the last. It's a pattern old as the forums themselves, so no, not projecting .

    You know, I always seem to be on the wrong side of everything. This time, my choice of profession makes me the devil as well. It may shock you to learn that some people actually do get better after medical treatment! I know! I KNOW! Crazy! It might shock you to learn that not everyone in the "medical profession" is out there rubbing their hands together plotting to rob you. It might even shock you what a number of things wind up costing, and how much the providers are reimbursed by payers. It would certainly NOT shock most decent medical providers to know that there are a large number of very beneficial "alternative" treatments, and some of them wind up being incorporated into common practice. A good doctor is going to listen to you and then provide their expert guidance. That expertise should usually extend to diet (including supplements, discussions about pH, etc.) and to more natural cures that, at worst, do no harm. The strangest part to me is seeing a lack of animosity on the part of the physicians, nurses, administrative staff, etc., that I work with... towards those who advocate natural cures, yet seeing the hatred that those who advocate natural cures have towards "medical professionals." Most of you would still head straight to the ER to have a bone set, though, or if you thought you were having a heart attack. It's an odd puzzle. Then, once you were back on your feet, you would be back to demonizing an entire industry's worth of people. The medication-shopping used to be for painkillers only. Now you see people doctor-shopping for antibiotics, or because little Timmy's cast needs to come off before football practice in a couple of weeks ---- never mind that his arm will probably not heal properly if he gets it taken off too early. Oh and if Timmy's arm does heal warped, his parents will sue the first doctor. People stomp in and demand a certain brand-name drug, even if it obviously clashes with another condition the patient has, or just isn't the best treatment for them. I mentioned briefly about reimbursement. How much would you pay for someone to drive to your home --- even if they lived, say, 60 miles from you --- and give you a bath, tidy your home, take your vital signs, trim your nails, do your hair, take care of your laundry, etc.? If you said anything more than $30, you're ahead of most insurers. How about a nurse driving to your home to deal with a wound big enough to put both fists into, which is non-healing, and needs to be unwrapped, cleaned, measured, checked for signs/symptoms of infection (hint: one of those signs involves smell, so that nurse WILL be getting in there and taking a good, deep whiff), packed, wrapped, and any number of other fun things? If you said more than $31, you're ahead of Medicaid. If you said more than $115 or so, you're ahead of most commercial insurers. That includes supplies, by the way. It also assumes the insurer authorized the care, and in the case of Medicaid it assumes that the provider filled out a five-page questionnaire within 24 hours of admission, obtained the physician's order on a special form, printed out a plan of treatment on a different specific form, which was in turn reviewed and signed by an on-staff RN for accuracy and correct diagnosis coding... you get the idea. You don't even want to know what goes into being reimbursed by Medicare. So maybe the "all 'medical professionals' are greedy cockbags" can end, but it probably won't.

    That is a possibility. What if he had the gun in his hand and due to his intoxication randomly shot it at someone or at an inanimate object? There could've been a threat we couldn't see ourselves in the videos that the officers saw. Maybe the officers perceived it incorrectly and misinterpreted his actions. They said there are more videos. Maybe those videos may give us a better idea.

    The body cam video shows what could be a gun holster on Keith's ankle. The PD released a photo of the holster. To me this means there was a higher chance of Keith having a gun. I don't think the videos are clear enough to know whether he had a gun in his hands or not. It's possible he had one in his hands and was making nonverbal movements that led the officer to feel threatened which eventually led to the shooting. Why didn't Keith listen to the officer to drop the gun if he had one? Why didn't Keith raise his arms in the air to surrender? I'm not saying the officer should've shot him, I wish there was a way to diffuse the situation without shooting him.

    Can't begrudge them the win. Gators imploded --- and they weren't playing THAT well to start with. It's obvious this crew can't hack it at away games. There's still some intriguing talent coming up through the next few years, at least, but this is just not going to be "the year." Even if Florida wins out (which I do not see happening) the odds of winning the SEC are slim, which means any playoff hopes are about gone. It's a wacky year though. Maybe. Just maybe.
