Re: The French are not good tourists it seems...

If the French want us out, the only condition is that the French Government errect a series of markers strenching from the beach at Normany, to the German Border, for every America that was killed or wounded between Normandy and the Rhine. Have the Americans put up tomb markers for the French force...

Re: Soccer mom?

But for all this "soccer mom" talk, I've yet to see a signup sheet at my parks and rec department for the middle-aged women's league. My bet is, they don't really exist. The female equivalent of my soccer club actually has quite a few mothers on their teams. Just because your government d...

Re: Soccer mom?

I'm still confused about what a "soccer mom" is. Define please. :eyebrow: Well, a working mom is a woman who is a mother and works for a living. A single mom is a woman who is a mother and is not in a relationship. Therefore, a soccer mom is a woman who is a mother and who plays soccer. B...

Re: Soccer mom?

Aren't they those crazy strict women who drive their children to their sport game? and spend most of their time trying to ban the food served in Cafeterias in schools? And ban cereal. Seriously, they think we can get fat off school food, but they barely put anything on the tray. Those crazy bitches...

Re: American Accent

Ok if you want to say Britain has no accent then you have to say America has no accent. If Britain has three "different" accents america has atleast 4. There is the "New Yorker" accent, the "Southurn"(spelt like that on purpose) accent, the "Texan" accent, an...

Re: British can't find their asses with both hands and a map

Really? My fourth grader just identified them all... Are you sure he did it correctly and precisely? Yes, I am sure she did. These are pretty basic organs named here. It's not like they are naming lobes of the brain or anything. I'm not sure she could describe how the thyroid or gallbladder functio...

Re: Pissed off about education....

That still misses the point. I (and you, in the post I quoted) were talking about appreciation as an observer , not the skills necessary to be the artist. No, in my first post I very intentionally did not specify if art instruction was centered on production or appreciation. You'll apparently need ...

Re: Pissed off about education....

With the execptions of the examples I've removed from your list in my quote, everything you mention misses the whole point . Appreciating art is NOT about being able to reduce it down to its mechanical elements and identify and describe them. Holism is your friend--not just of the piece but of its ...

Re: Pissed off about education....

I agree that the arts should be integral to education, just as any other subject is, but I also don't see each subject as totally discrete and would advocate for better interdisiplinary instruction. You can study music, in addition to "appreciate this classical piece", from the standpoint ...

Re: The Death of the Apostrophe?

But in thinking about "there" "they're" and their"... what happens if we remove the apostrophe in "they're" -- it becomes "theyre", and if you're going to do that, you might as well go all the way with it, lose that "y", and just use "ther...
