“Side note: I'm not saying you're wrong and I'm right. I'm not an expert, I just read an article and wanted to share. I hope you don't think I'm trying to debate :)
I just love silly knowledge, sometimes it gets me into trouble!”
“I kind of see what you are getting at, but the actual experiment is that people who speak languages without more names for colors can not see a difference between different hues. It's just an experiment, but here is the article if you are interested.http://www.apa.org/monitor/feb05/hues.aspx ”
“Cool fact: Your ability to recognize color depends on what language you speak.
Some languages have many more words for colors for example, we have the color 'pink' and the color 'salmon' which we see as two different colors (except for on Friend's, haha).
In some languages they don't have as many names and in others they have a lot more. There have been studies of how well people can tell the difference between different hues and it was apparent language is a key factor in telling the difference.”

“I would disagree. While, yes, we may have different names for different hues, the labels we assign those hues (salmon or coral or pink) have nothing to do with the actual perception in the difference of hues.
Yes, in English, we have a different name for "pink" and "red", which to us are 2 separate colors; in some languages they are seen as the same color with just different hues. In some parts of southern Russia, what I perceive as a "light blue" and a "dark blue" are considered separate colors, even tho, to me, they're just "shades of blue". This test is determining how well you can distinguish between hues as they change from one color to another; what one language may name a particular hue is irrelevant.”
“I know this article is figurative about how much money a woman and man would make if paid for household duties but how about an article about how men are needed and are an important part of a family dynamic!
I was raised without a father and I can say from personal experience that there were so many things my brother and I missed out on.
Even today in my twenties I will miss out, there is no father to give me away, no father daughter dance, no grandfather on my side for my future children. Things I still feel a loss for, and wish I could have.
Maybe we, as a society, should begin to respect and value men, encourage them to play a role in their children/wives/partner's lives.”

“It sends a bad message to today's young sons about their importance in the future. How can we expect the boys of today to be the fathers who are there for their kids in the future if the message send to them is that they are "worth less than moms"? It's a self-fulfilling prophesy.”

“"Maybe we, as a society, should begin to respect and value men, encourage them to play a role in their children/wives/partner's lives."
We COULD do that.
Or maybe we, as a society, should continue to disrespect and devalue men, and YELLING at them to play a role in their children's live while doing nothing to empower them.”
“My mom used to get us to eat Carrots by pretending to sleep at the table and saying " Please don't chomp those carrots."
Of course we chomped as loud as we could! She would pretend to wake up, looking confused, we'd laugh and she would start all over.
Years later it finally dawned on me, too bad it doesn't work now that I'm older!”
“I don't think I'm understanding what they mean. I get that they can't download it, or save it. When the say "view" do they mean it is okay to type " Child Porn " into a search engine and look at it.
I guess I don't know how to ask the question. I just need someone to put in easy terms.
The headlines make it seem really terrible and sick, but I feel as though there is something I am missing here.”

“The law makes it so that if you are on a porn site that has child porn on it, and you view it, you are not liable. the new legislation that is going to be introduced will make it so that you have to commit a willful act of seeking it out to be held liable. This is actually a better way to go about it, since the internet is as it is.
tl;dr: it can be difficult on some legitimate porn sites to be sure that the members involved are over 18, thus just viewing but not being aware shouldn't be a crime.”
“My heart is broken for Rachel Ehmke. I wish someone could have told her, it would pass and that there is so much for her beyond grade school/ high school.
I think it's about time for bullying to stop. I think it would be helpful if the world was not surrounded with TV shows about people being mean and an internet full of people fighting.
It's time for a crack down on bullying from adults, teachers, parents, etc. It is our responsibility to teach kids how to treat other kindly and with respect.
I hope the the students who terrorized Rachel make a big big change. That they see the hurt they inflicted and decide to live each day lifting people up and healing the brokenness of society.”
“The last flight I was on, I sat next to an adorable 10 month old and her mom. The baby was so good, it was 2 am, after a five hour flight delay and I can only imagine how tired the baby was, but she never cried.
The mom was 21, a year younger than I, so we hit it off, and took turns holding the little girl. When her Mom went to the bathroom I took her, I gave her a bottle and helped get her to sleep. It was a cool experience, because, even as a non-parent, I felt a little bit nervous when the baby found the hair dangling over the seat in front of us!
She had an excellent momma, and at the end of the flight all the passengers were so impressed with the baby. It is my favorite flight to date.”
