Infinite, what makes you think that you have the right to come down with an easily prevented disease because you fear inoculations and then give to someone else? You have a moral duty to maintain your car in a safe condition so as not to threaten other’s lives, why do you think that disease is any different?

Well ‘TEAPART..’ it’s called recruitment. It is obviously an attempt by the gay teacher to ‘excite’ any possible converts / participants into revealing themselves.
This is what happens when teachers have ‘pushed the envelope’ as far as they can and there is nowhere left to go but over the top. This ‘guy’ should never be allowed to, metaphorically, expose himself to children, anywhere, again.

Vague, the only way you will ever ‘get’ Obama is to impeach him. And none of the Republicans have the guts to do so. They would rather draw their plans for the next election than do what is right for the country. Gutless, cowards and scheming politicians.

There is a reason that the POTUS uses a BlackBerry – SECURITY. No other phone offers the security of the BlackBerry BB10 system. Apple security is a joke. Android security are two words that shouldn’t be used in the same sentence. It makes one wonder why he needs such security and what he is hiding . . . … . .

This is a typical example of the military preparing to fight the previous war, where big naval units ruled the sea and projected power around the world. What the major powers didn’t recognize was that war had changed and huge battleships were little more than sitting ducks for aircraft. It was a lesson hard learned at Pearl Harbour.
I think Japan took Colonel Mitchell's words to heart, the only country to do so.
Battleships in W.W.2 had their place but as you said they were sitting ducks
For air power.
Battle ships played a big role in the Pacific islands invasions.
And Germany as usual did not use their battleships correctly.
Their battleships as a fleet in conjunction with their subs would
Have done much more damage to our merchant fleets going to England and Russia. We would have had to have built more carriers to send with the merchant
Fleets. That would have been a terrible mess.
Germany did combine the U-Boat Wolfpacks with Tirpitz's task force, guided to intercepts by Focke-Wulf Condor reconnaissance planes in two successful attacks against the Murmansk Convoys in 1940 and early 1941.
The idea itself worked extremely well, but by that time, Germany was experiencing serious supply problems and Tirpitz was mostly stuck in port for lack of fuel.
Bear in mind that Radar was in its infancy back then and those recon crews relied on the Mark-1, Mod. 0 eyeball to get the job done. Had the same radar that helped sweep the U-Boats from the Bay of Biscay in 1943 and '44 been available in 1940, Tirpitz probably wouldn't have ever left port.

Yes it does! I have so many resets and programme failures that it is becoming a pain in the posterior just coming here anymore.

So, it appears that they still haven’t found the keys to the asylum in North Korea . . .. . .. .

One must wonder, how much attention the universities and police, would have lavished on anyone of you, had this happened to your daughter. Celebrity has it’s rewards.
He should have posted a list of the miscreants along with their contact information and let the jungle take care of it’s own.
Well she's not a lesbian, so don't expect any outrage.
Doing so might seem prudent in the heat of it, but choosing to do the right thing is the only way considering his scathing retort.
I would have "outed" each commenter to his school or employer, and his family. But not to the world. "Letting the jungle take care of its own" is only appropriate for miscreants who are beyond the reach of justice in any other form.

Apple play was doomed before it was announced to the world when most major retailers refused to support the system. Couple that with apples operating system that has almost as many security holes in it as android does and it is a recipe for disaster. Apple technology is years behind the competition. The only thing apple has innovated in years, is higher and higher prices for mid-tier phones.
“Good humour” is always based in fact. This was one of the very few, truly funny, bits that SNL has been able to produce in quite a while. Those who object to it are part of the “I don’t like it so you can’t talk about it!” crowd.

My doctor has been after me to ‘get out and walk!”. I will be sure to keep this article out of his sight!!
Yes you are correct, they are blacks, not African Americans, unless they were born in Africa.I say you are (A) frican American, not African American. And BOO, HOO, HOO, and WAAA,WAAA, WAAA, I've been offended, get over yourselves,seriously, this PC BS has gotten way out of hand.

Up here in Canada, I see more Hyundais broken down beside the highway, during the winter than any other make. I drive a G.M. Always starts. Always runs. Never needs repair. And with that double overhead cam, variable valve timing, direct-injected, 24 valve engine it goes like a rocket!
First mistake: Canada
Next mistake (and biggest mistake of all): GM = Obama Motors. What a fool!
March 1, 2015 at 9:25am
When you think about it, with no steering, Hyundai is already pioneering ‘driverless’ technology.

I wonder if any of the editors have learned that they must research every article submitted by these silly students before printing it? What do they expect from kids with no life experience and an uber left agenda with which they have been transfused by their alleged professors?

Skydivers have a secret death wish. The only acceptable reason to jump out of an airplane is if someone has shot a big chunk out of it.
Yup..same for "bungie jumpers" and so on..life is too short as it is. If it ain't on fire I won't jump.
It's the adrenaline. When skydivers first start out they feel it but by the time they reach 100 jumps they are jumping for the pleasure. On the other hand, BASE jumpers never lose the adrenaline because they know that every jump might be their last. Under normal conditions skydivers open at around 2000 feet which gives them plenty of time to use the reserve or recover from a problem. BASE jumpers don't carry a reserve because they jump so low they don't have time to recover. Most of the skydiver who die while jumping die because they freeze or because they want to die (no pull)..
I can understand some people wanting the thrill of it and being willing to risk their safety and their lives for 'fun'.
I have no problem with them doing it if they want to.
It's just not for me, that's all.
Not really. I went Airborne in the Army, but took up skydiving to address my intense fear of heights. It really helped.
Sky diving is like Scuba diving - The goal of the sport is to survive!

It seems to me that a healthy knowledge of physics should be part of the requirement for riding a bike. If a 50 lb bike collides with a 3000 lb car there is going to be only one winner and that winner will have more than two wheels. Armed with this basic knowledge, one would think that cyclists would be on the defensive all the time.
But they’re not.
Too many cyclists think that law trumps physics and they ride around with a chip on their shoulders, waiting to have an incident with the evil car driver, so that they might do their part to champion their green / anti car agenda. Too many cyclists run red lights, ride down the white line instead of inside their bike lanes, generally ignore the laws that govern ALL users of public roads and act like spoiled, entitled children. NOT ALL BIKERS, but enough to poison the well of good will.
Make no mistake. The cyclist in this article was right. He was cut off by the old phart in the van. But one must wonder if a little more defence on his part, coupled with both a knowledge that there are idiots driving cars and the above mentioned physics, might have avoided all of the nastiness. One must also wonder about the convenience of wearing a video camera at just the right time . . .. . .. .
I have always said ‘the law of man may be on your side but the law of physics is not”.
BW I should have read your comment before posting mine.
At sea they call it the Law of Gross Tonnage, i.e., if another ship is a lot bigger than yours, it's a very good idea to give him lots of room to maneuver regardless of who is following the rules of the road.
We should all go back to horse back
Wouldn’t your argument about poor driving also extend to motor vehicles? When a bike drives poorly they are mostly endangering themselves and when a car drives poorly they mostly endanger others from the sanctity of they padded, air bagged vehicle. Everyone needs to think about the consequences if one simple mistake takes place while everyone jockeys for position. People are hurt and lives are changed forever. Cars and trucks don’t even share the road with each other well, much less with bicycles. Basically that old guy doesn’t know how to properly turn left over the bike lane. He would never try to turn across a motor vehicles path like that. He probably learned to drive with little or no bike traffic and needs to refresh his driving training. Hes just out-dated, and apparently has anger control issues. One day he might pull a stunt like that on the wrong young, fit biker who’s blood is actually pumping from exercise instead of road rage and then he will be in real trouble.
