$97,000!!! I’ve built 2 quadcopters myself for less than $1000, and there’s no possible way he’s not baking in a LOT of extra cash to that bill for some reason. Even really high end drones don’t cost more than $10,000!! But forget about the drones… this guy needs to be investigated for FRAUD!

I think this is the phrase he is trying to refer to in the fifth amendment but obviously misunderstands it: “No person shall be … compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…”
The “right to remain silent” is something completely different.

“According to the Ordain Women website, Bishop Mark Harrison notified Kelly of the decision via email, detailing both the consequences and the conditions that she needs to consider if the can ever be re-baprised into the church.”

There is SO much wrong here, I can’t contain myself. 1. If jobs are going unfilled, the recruiters and hiring managers are doing a poor job. 2. If the reason jobs are going unfilled is that it’s financially a better move to leach off the government, aka taxpayers, then we need to wean more people OFF assistance so that the need to work is re-ignited. 3. If the jobs are only low wage jobs that only foreign illegal undocumented workers will take, how much “skill” could they really require. Sounds to me like they’re jobs where one has to actually WORK for a living. I am sick TO DEATH of hearing people complain there’s no work while employers complain they can’t get people to work. Raise your wage offering and make a decent environment for people to work and people will work when they no longer get support from the taxpayers!!

Oops, I knew I’d include at least one typo. “various ways to think about and solve…”

Actually, a lot of this is lifted directly from modern business language. Sure, the motivation might have been insidious, but it’s not made up, out of the blue nonsense, it seems to me; at least not from these examples regarding math.

Delving this deep into simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division might be going a bit too far, especially for us oldtimers who memorized our times tables, etc., but I have to admit that I somewhat like the idea of teachers actually teaching various ways to thing about and solve problems and then requiring students to demonstrate proficiency in those methods. If executed properly, with sufficient time, money, and parental support, this could actually turn out to be a good thing. Yeah, I know, there are a lot of “if’s” in there… that’s on purpose.
Oops, I knew I'd include at least one typo. "various ways to think about and solve..."
And do you know what the "sneakiest" part of this CC thing is? It looks like they're actually preparing you for understanding what mathematics has been for the last 200 years or so! I'll admit, I don't know much about CC, and that not everybody goes on to do or use higher math. But I think, like giving kids biology about plants and animals, it's only fair to give them proper math, since, who knows, they might eventually be glad they had it one day! Anything involving math, comp sci, cryptography, logic, data, statistics, etc., not to mention the real world, comes in many formats. Most of modern math has been about identifying ways to bring disparate problems together, and get the most out of our techniques. I think "math situation" is actually really appropriate. When working on a problem, you are actually quite lucky if it is a math situation because that means you can actually model it! Learning algorithms may have helped you balance your checkbook, but computers do most of that for us now, and being a good problem solver means being able to recognize a similar situation varying across many dimensions. It is actively ignorant and neglectful to keep modern discovery out of school.

Haha! I noticed that English grammar error as well. But I have to say, just putting apples into bags doesn’t make them anymore mine no matter whether the are 4 total apples or 4 apples in each of 3 bags for a total of 12 apples. :)

@HarryPotter, Actually microphone cables only have one male and one female XLR connecter. It helps ensure that signal direction is clearly indicated. Male XLR connectors are always “output.” Female connectors are always “input.” Other types of audio cables, such as RCA or 1/4″ are essentially patch cables, connecting one jack to another, and are, therefore, male on both ends. Not that any of this has anything to do with the gay agenda to force everybody else to support their activities, but since you brought audio cables and microphones into the mix, I thought I’d clarify.

So many things wrong here.
1. Public sex – bystanders should have called the cops immediately whether it was rape or public consensual sex.
2. Underage drinking – she is 20 and so blitzed that she didn’t even know she had been raped until she saw pictures of it
3. Social media – sharing pictures of sex, whether consensual or not, is just not something that should come to mind but has become the FIRST thing that comes to mind for this warped and lost generation.
I agree with your list but I'd add one more:
4) everyone immediately jumping to the conclusion that it was rape rather than just a couple drunk horny college kids at play

While I don’t agree with the hypothetical assertion that the Bill of Rights is outdated, this type of critical thinking exercise CAN BE a very useful tool in teaching the validity of the thing the student is required to modify, in this case the Bill of Rights. Without any additional context it is really hard to judge the motivations of the alleged teacher. I agree with previous commenters that teaching understanding of the Bill of Rights before being asked to modify them is more appropriate. It is questionable, however, whether a teacher really handed this assignment out, since it includes obvious grammar errors within the first two sentences, and has used a ridiculously bold typeface for the entire body of the document.

McCain doesn’t understand why Lee, Paul, and Cruz would vow to fillibuster because he is too blind to see what’s really going on. What about the language in the 2nd amendment is not clear? “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
April 8, 2013 at 1:12pm
Wow, Vickie! You just blew my mind… I was thinking the EXACT SAME THING!! I love that movie and the message that it really is up to each of us to individually stand up and do what is right, not because it’s easy or popular but because it’s right.

That’s right, this is the same fool who thought Guam might tip over and capsize if we sent 8000 more troops there. The even BIGGER issue? The freaking idiot voters in his district in Georgia RE-ELECTED HIM after the Guam Might Tip Over incident!!!!! They are probably right there with him, cheering on the restriction of free speech from those evil corporations who are ‘stealing’ the government.

Actually TheBlaze got one of the facts technically incorrect, as well. The number of “Congressmen” would be 535 because Congress includes both the Senate and the House and since the number of Senators is 100 and the number of Representatives in the House is 435… you see my point. :)
It is sickening just how blindly these idiots follow their Dear Leader and how little they are actually learning at school.
The real question for me, is what is causing the stupidity and how do we fix it? I know, I know… you can’t fix stupid, but if we could at least stop little kids from getting stupid, the next generationi after this might have a chance.

Yeah, because it’s always wise to interpret natural disasters as God’s will to punish those you don’t agree with. Yes, Pat Robertson was a freaking moron for saying the same thing about Katrina being God’s punishment for New Orleans. It’s especially ironic that both of these religious zealot nuts don’t actually believe that God still speaks through living prophets, and thus would have NO WAY of knowing what God’s will in relation to current events might be.

The first and fourth are obviously shopped out. Look at the other humans in the picture and you’ll notice that their poses are EXACTLY the same in each. You’ll also notice how they shopped by women out, if you loo at things like shadows, reflections, where knobs are on mirrors,… kinda like a “find the differences” comic.
That said, per maket accommodations are always made by companies that wish to participate in more than one market.If I were the photographer, however, I would be PISSED! You don’t mess with my art without my permission and I would NOT give permission to screw with my photos like that.

This a$$hol3 doesn’t know the difference between racism and cultural differences. Racism is when you judge somebody as inferior based solely on the color of their skin. It is NOT racism to forget to accommodate possible cultural differences such as dietary customs.

Nope, I was wrong. Obama wears his watch on his left wrist. They just spelled it left to right from their own point of view instead of from the viewers’.

Besides the pit stains? Maybe the image was flipped left-to-right.
