  1. Appreciate it, from all of you! First day of school went great!

  2. The strange thing is people use the term "socialist" as if it's an inherently bad thing. That's fucking bizarre to me. Like universal healthcare, education and housing for the entire population is somehow bad? What? Was ist das? I get that Capitalism in its pure definition is human nature. We should all be able to be rewarded for our labour. But capitalism and socialism are not mutually exclusive and socialist policies can really protect the people of a capitalist society from getting utterly trampled by the system, particularly if said person has slipped through the cracks. If the USA

  5. My son made this. It's metal cut with some type of computer laser thing where he works. He glued it to a slab of wood he painted black. It was his Christmas gift to me last year.

  7. If you need to carry a gun when you go outside to feel safe or free, I question the very concept of freedom and safety these people hold dear. I can understand gun ownership for hunting, home defense and these sort of things.. but if you need to be armed to go outside? Says a lot about the correlation between the illusion of safety and freedom.

  8. They like to think themselves the underdog. White people, Christians, people who live in rural communities, love to think of themselves as oppressed, ignored, forgotten. It makes them feel very important and self righteous. It's why they gobbled up everything Trump said in 2015-16 and ever since.

  9. Small tangent...but why do Trump supporters think they're the "silent majority"? They're very clearly neither.

  13. Lyra I'm sure has anxiety--or at least will when she gets older. Similar to Torch's kid, she's been having a tough time with simple math and breaking down over it too. Sometimes you just gotta hug them and stop the lessons for a day, even if it puts you behind the teacher's plan for the week. It's not worth it. They'll get caught up when they can. And Nicole, for Eli... we haven't taken him in, but I wouldn't at all be surprised if he has ADD/ADHD (I'm not sure I fully understand the difference between those). He's very impulsive and toy obsessed, way more than his sister is, and can't fo

  16. There is some pretty fly by the seat of your pants adaptation going on. I do feel bad, teachers are exhausted. But its also pretty apparent how not-tech savvy a lot of them are. I've been searching for Girl Scour badge lesson plans online for 4 years and running online meetings for years, so my Girl Scout meetings are going pretty well. But I also have the benefit of prepping monthly kits for porch pickup, which most teachers don't. Semi-related, last year before shit hit the COVID fan, I had decided to focus on emotional resilience and growth mindset with my Girl Scout troop. I admit thi

  18. Adults who scream at kids confuse COMPLIANCE with GROWTH/ LEARNING. The reason why most people that go to jail end up back in jail is not because the punishment wasn't harsh enough, it was because when prisoners get out they are lacking the skills to be successful.

  19. People/ parents/ teachers/ coaches who think yelling at kids is the solution should not be around kids. And before I hear, "well kids these days are snow flakes blah blah blah"....there is CLEAR, overwhelming research that students learn more when the support is strength-based. Yelling and screaming actually HINDERS growth. Rules, structure, and discipline are MUCH easier to achieve in a supportive, nurturing environment...but this requires a greater skill set on the adult.

  23. Socialism means “things I don’t like” just like fascism means “thing I don’t like”. Few people use them correctly.

  24. I don’t have time to watch the things I want, so I’m not giving my time to any of these debates. I pay close attention to politics, so there’s not going to be any new information, so it’s like watching a bad reality TV show with contestants that you hate.

  25. Yeah, the teacher really didn't want to do it, she said it's the first time she's never been able to talk a kid down from a tantrum. Hooray us! He'll be staying home until his bathroom habits are better--maybe next week, maybe next month, maybe January. We've talked to him a lot about it. Poor little boy was more scared than mad, at least when I got there.

  26. Despite being one of my favorite pop song of the 90s and having listened to this song hundreds of times (I was a weekend radio dj at a Top 40 station when this song came out), I realized two days ago the song, "Too Close" by Next is about a guy getting a boner on the dance floor.

  29. Well now I'm kind of excited. Had to tell some of my team so we can begin transition planning. It looks like I may be able to go in 2 weeks. I get to work with some people I've worked with in the past and good friends. I am also leaving a team of good friends that I am really bonded with. It is a testament to what good friends they are that their initial reaction was to be happy for me first and then oh crap how are we going to replace you? I think they have already found a replacement for some of it, fortunately. But I told my new manager that I realized I had stopped growing in my current ro

  30. Biden is so close to winning Texas, and the GOP is fighting like hell to suppress votes because of it. There's a new lawsuit going up almost daily. They're scared and it's obvious. Even Cornyn is trying to distance himself from Trump now. There were 3 separate Trump parades that drove by my neighborhood last weekend, and they actually pushed people away from Trump. Several people have told stories about their elderly parents or grandparents or neighbors or whatever being so disgusted by these parades that they switched their votes to Biden. And that's on top of the stories of people who

  36. This is one of my favorites too. It has that 70s film grain smear that's usually seen in classic porn films. The icky plant / body horror stuff is something that works so well practically, and is a thing CG has made totally over the topic. This movie just feels icky all around, which is why I loved it. Question-- how man people saw the last frame as a meme for years before realizing it was from this film?

  37. Most people in general don't know how to deal with kids. This week I had to let my daughter's soccer coach know that the way she addressed my 9-year old daughter when she was misbehaving was counterproductive bordering on abusive. These people work with kids every day but they probably have no training on how to actually teach kids. We may be dropping to a less competitive level because honestly, a volunteer coach might be better prepared to deal with kids than a childless soccer nut.

  38. Like I said about violence, the problem isn’t the majority. The majority of Trump voters are decent people. The majority of gun owners are different people. But there is a loud minority that makes it really easy to see the entire other side as horrible. But there are people I know, love, and enjoy spending time with who are voting Trump. But, I’m probably the most centrist person here, and the stuff coming from the left isn’t nearly as loud or scary as the stuff coming from the right. And back to guns, I don’t think anyone should have a gun in their home unless they know how to care

  39. RE people and guns. I am a gun owner, but I just shake my head at the loud boisterous gun fanatics that are always crying how they are on the verge of losing the right to tote a semi auto or auto weapon at calibers that was originally designed to shoot down airplanes. How much protection do you need? Do you think you are going to overthrow the government of the country with the most powerful and technically proficient military of the world? Or, like that idiot kid who decided it was a good idea to carry an AR15 to a protest, and ended up killing people. Why was it necessary to carry a rif

  40. I don't know the entire situation, but my understanding is he stuck a gun in someone's face and robbed them, and on a later date police tried to pull him over, but he bailed out and ran, being caught a few days later. No one died or anything, but that is pretty scary right there, and he is lucky all he got was the sentence he did. The sentence was supposed to be longer, but he got out on good behavior and is on parole now. The burner phone is a good idea, but I think I won't call at all. As I see it, if I don't feel comfortable calling someone on my own phone, then I don't need to be

  45. Awesome! We are seeing a lot of kids that parents were losing their minds with come back and be fine...granted we are still in the honeymoon period. But online learning is so stressful everyone. This x1,000,000. ADHD is caused by irregular blood flow in the brain which requires medical treatment. If a kid breaks his leg, you don't say, "just make him do sprints...that will fix him".
