“I am a SysAdmin at a fair sized school district.
I half jokingly tell the teachers to use pencils and paper while I diagnose and fix problems. I believe the art of composure and composition in all disciplines is growing rare.
Of course, when someone asks me for a pen to write a note, I also tell them that I am a tech, we use computers I don't own a pen.”

“There are a lot of comments about whether the state should be paying for the education of special needs children. YES! These education programs are specialized in a way that really does help to educate the children. Many parents of normal functioning children have a difficult time parenting, there is no reason to expect the parents of special needs children to have the same skill and ability as the Teachers in these specialties.
You may not find it that difficult to teach your child to do as simple a task as tie his shoes for example, but these life skills are something that can be incredibly difficult to teach.”

“I live in a world where I do not want to think that this could be more commonplace than just these half a dozen men. I think most Americans do, too busy going to Walmart for Cheetos to think about the unpleasant consequences of an extended war(s). However, despite my desire to stick my head in a hole and switch on American Idol, I DO read the article and I DO consider that this could be happening anywhere in Afghanistan.
My respect for individuals in our armed services is undiminished.
My respect for the commanders of our armed services has evaporated.”

“And certainly not limited to religion.”

Mr Hoodoo on Mar 25, 2011 at 11:25:05

“But given that religion has been the ultimate tool for controlling humanity down through the ages...

A belief in an invisible Sky Pappy, fear of that supposed All-Seeing, even in one's darkened closets, exploitation by political leaders in concert with the religious leaders makes it that much worse above all others as it shatters one to the very core of their belief system.

If one suckers into believing in invisible Cloud Daddies.”

“There is little actually written in the Bible about Hell, even the idea of Heaven with the Pearly gates is not represented.
The simplest thing that I gather from the Bible is that Heaven is my soul reunited with God and Hell is the complete absence of God. It seems we live our lives in between these two states.”

Why You're Not Married

Commented Mar 9, 2011 at 15:53:27 in Style

“I would say this applies quite well to the group of people who are not married but would like to be. Humans are very complex, so admittedly it doesn't apply to 100% of people out of the box. But you have to give her credit for hitting it on the head. It took me 10 years to find my soulmate, I would say that some of these statements applied to me. I even fit into some of these statements while dating my husband. Luckily we both grew as people, and grew together at that.
Secondly, marriage is far different and much more work. Luckily it's the fruit bearing rewarding work that we all crave.”
