Happy #Thanksgeeking: Who Made You Into A Science Lover?

Happy #Thanksgeeking: Who Made You Into A Science Lover?

Commented Nov 21, 2012 at 23:53:23 in Science

“I have to say my 7th grade science teacher, Mrs. Danato. Looks just like Ms Frizzle from the magic school bus. Blue eyes, crazy/wild red hair, and the weird patterned clothes hahaha. SHE made my interest in science skyrocket to my its current level of obsession.

My bother for doing slightly dangerous experiments/projects in our backyard (and my slight obsession with fire)

and of course my dad. He encouraged my interest in finding out how things work, what's actually happening inside something (its processes), or if i didn't know the answer he was the first one to hand me a book and say "figure it out"

...so many people but those three are by far the biggest influences on my love of all things science.”

“Congratulations to these states! Now if only this kind outcome could be in California...now that would make me happy”

“Don't worry, it WILL happen in Cali. I'm from Idaho, and I'm even optimistic for this backward state. Marriage equality will march across the country, just like the change during the civil rights era, there will be no stopping it!!”

“The Supreme Court has it scheduled for a Nov 20 conference. Given the results tonight, I think they won't take it and let Judge Walker's ruling overturning it stand.

“And like I said above...it's not that people don't like you, its the annoyingly preaching ones who they can't stand. No need to solicit your lifestyle to me via preachy internet post. Your just as bad as the people who try to solicit their religion the same way. Eating meat, just like subscribing to a particular religion is a choice. If you feel that not eating it makes you feel better than good for you. Don't try to pressure people into following the same path. Like all things in life it's a choice....I choose to eat meat. Trust me I saw Food, Inc...that's more of an advocacy for better treatment and preparation of animals since the current method is flawed (stopping cruelty against animals). That's not a logical reason to stop consuming all meat. Preachy comment: Fail.”

“I don't think that's gonna get him/her a date....

...and for or all the people disturbed by the 'Meat is murder, tasty tasty murder' portion of the receipt your kind of late. That slogan as been in circulation for a while now. You can even get it on a t-shirt, sticker, or poster (its all over the internet). I think its aimed at all the vegetarians and vegans. Not that people don't like you, they just dislike the annoyingly preachy ones who try to tell everyone that eats meat that they're a bad person who murders helpless animals. Especially at college campuses...always harassing people with their pamphlets lol.”

Breezie36 on Aug 23, 2012 at 08:51:28

“Yeah, you are bad people who condone the murder of helpless animals. Get educated and see just how bad it truly is. Try watching "Food, Inc." first. Hopefully your "Brain" will get the message and you'll become an advocate for the cause.”

“All the books on here look like they were picked by my high school english teacher lol, but...

Where's the Hemingway, Steinbeck, Voltaire?....heck even Neil Gaiman (i liked Good Omens)

Out of all the Jane Austen books they pick Emma? At least they didn't pick Pride and Prejudice. What about Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park.....

Same thing with Charles Dickens....

and I know its my inner nerd but just once I would like to see a science-fiction or fantasy novel on the list...I recommend books by Sergei Lukyanenko, Terry Goodkind, or J.R.R. Tolkien for starters.”

“That is true. But I always thought of karma as more patient and slow. It manifests itself in a more subtle way, less sudden or forceful. I have no doubt in my mind that Rush, Glenn and Pat are going to get what's coming to them but they will be too slow and too late to do anything about it. Pat Robertson is already thought of as a quack (by us sane people anyway), Hopefully Rush will lose more sponsors and funding, thus making his voice no more influential than any other, and Glenn has something special waiting for him. All in a matter of time (:”

“I also thought of Karma, but it can’t be that simple, otherwise Pat Robertson and Rush&Glenn, among would be long dead. I do feel sorry for this family, and pray that his hate for his fellow human beings died with him.”

“Thank god we're only #46 in CA....but that figure is still disturbing. If people really want to slim down they have to make some sacrifices. For those who aren't ready for total commitment to a workout routine just follow some easier steps:

1) Give up junk food for a while (desserts are ok if small and very few)

2) Eat a small & balanced meal. You don't need 3 giant meals throughout the day, just 4 or 5 smaller ones. And don't skip breakfast (something light, non-heavy)

4) Watch what you drink (no soda). All you need is Water, real fruit or veggie smoothies (not those high sugar drinks) and tea (lots of antioxidants, boost immune system, helps combat common cancers, regulates digestion)

3) Get a little more active. If your here in CA go to the beach, dancing, the park, gym, or light jogging. Something that gets you off your bum.

...and PLEASE stay away from those bull***t weight loss pills or surgeries.”

“Ok, your point makes sense. I'll give it to you that the parents could have intervened and stopped his behavior...IF they knew what he was doing. Most kids are smart enough to behave and 'act normal' in front of their parents. I'm pretty sure he would have thought to come out of his room (batcave?) once in a while or turn the lights/volume low in order to keep playing. Also keep in mind that most kids now have or play video games so it's not like she had a legitimate reason (before now) to take it away from him (especially if he's a good kid). So I guess in a way they're both to blame...but more so the kid.”

“Wow lots of judgmental people on here blaming his parents for the fact that he didn't take care of himself. Any of you have a teen? Do you really think you can tell them what to do in their own room? Aside from that you think a 15 year old doesn't know how to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom, or even bath without someone helping them. Sorry but this is a case of "personal responsibility". It's the kids own fault...maybe now this experience will teach him a few things.”

sherdy49 on Aug 9, 2012 at 08:53:11

“I am a teacher and have had up to 160 15 year olds in my classesv for years, so I know 15 year olds. Some of them would do nothing but play games all day long if the parents didn't cut the plug. I have parents who have bought their kids a Wii, a cellphone, an iPod, a laptop, and then they complain their kid is flunking everything because "we can't get Johnny to do his homework." Really? Closet. Unplug. Everything goes in it. Lock. During the summer, a 15 year old is old enough to hang with friends, be dropped off at the movies or mall, get a job mowing people's lawns, spend time outside by himself, or heaven forbid, read a book. No blame for the parents when they are the ones footing the bill for the games and allowing the hours of it to go on? Oh please. Who is the adult here?”

“When I was 15, my parents most certainly told me what to do! Mom obviously has some control over the kid if she took the Xbox away after he made himself ill. The parents absolutely are partially responsible for not showing any concern about the fact that their child did nothing but play video games for days on end, apparently to the exclusion of eating, drinking, and personal hygiene.”

You really think kids aren't piercing their lips, ears, noses, and belly buttons? Try again.”

“Hmmm, let me see:

Bane (noun)

1. a person or thing that ruins or spoils
2. a deadly poison (often used in combination, as in the names of poisonous plants): wolfsbane; henbane.
3. death; destruction; ruin.

or my favorite: 4. an escaped convict from an island prison in South America and a super-villain/assassin from the DC comics/Batman universe

...Maybe instead of accusing the "liberal" media of trying to tarnish Romney's good name (that's laughable), Mitt shouldn't have named his company after a villain/poisonous-substance/word-synonymous-with-destruction.”

“Let me again 'try' to understand the liberal mind; though some may call that an oxymoron. You don't think that a "legal" immigrant who came here long ago with his parents, was educated here and was a governor of New Hampshire, has a right to give his point of view. Yet you want illegal aliens who crossed the border yesterday have the right to our healthcare, education system and social security benefits. Is that like your beliefs that a man who is found "beyond a shadow of a doubt" cannot be put to death, yet an innocent unborn baby can. Sorry, I don't get either.”
