Re: Pomodoro Time Management Technique

Smart move to run this new "breaks" theory past the highly successful IGx crowd to see if it actually holds water. Before lashing out all that money.

Re: Too old for this shit... or not

I have seen some professional wrestling that was real so it's not always obvious. I remember a brutal fight between "Hulk Hogan" and "Andre the Giant" years back, that was definitely real and I would NOT let my kids watch that sort of stuff as people get seriously injured and worse, it desensitizes ...

Re: Too old for this shit... or not

Those fights are not real. They're fixed from start to finish. It's entertainment only - the guys are not really fighting.

Re: Heart

Interesting. Depending on the age of the kids, the lessons to be taught by sport and the correct aims of a coach differ. For under 14s, the aim should be maximum participation, skill development and keeping as many kids interested and involved as possible. This is enlightened self interest for the s...

For TOM

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ysFyxSDiog TOM, thought you'd appreciate this. Cool song about a proud French ship sold for scrap by the French government. Very emotional French song by a master. Never again call me "France", France has let me fall. Never again call me "France". That's my final wish

Re: Why racism is contemptible

What Gorby should understand, unless he's to young to remember that his nation was the bastion for controling it's citizens and tossing mouthy ones away in Siberia is that hate crimes open a window up for oppression in times of "emergency". You're either a comic genius or one of the most stupid peo...

Re: Why racism is contemptible

Targeting someone for a violent attack based on ethnicity or sexual preference or religion is deserving of special punishment in a civil society . It is an attack on the cohesion of and freedoms in that society. It is an attack on us all. If you murder someone in a fit of rage or jealousy, or you s...

Re: Why racism is contemptible

I haven't paid much attention to "hate crimes". As I understand it most violent crimes are crimes against the victim and the state. Hate crimes, because they are directed against a member of a protected group, are also crimes against a protected community which the state has decided is an extra bad...

When I went to college, I had a homophobic friend and my 17 year old kid argument to him was that he hadn't met every person who was gay, so who was he to write them all off? You haven't met every black/Jewish/Muslim/gay/etc. person in the world, and never will. Reading all this hate speech is maki...
