Ah, yes. Good Times – a rare “spin-off of a spin-off” and notable for the second-loudest laugh track in television history. The memories …
This is perfectly acceptable to the nutbar right as the end result of Republiturd gutting of the education system. Why should kids need to be able to find the U.S. on a map? Maps just show other countries and different places and other things that are nothing but Terrorist Hotbeds That Want To Destroy Our Way Of Life. Much better to save a few bucks than to worry about whether or not kids can identify stuff like that … its the Republican way!
Nah – like his brothers Corey had some legit musical chops. And regardless of what we would call “traditional musical abilities or training” if you make your living creating and selling music, you are a musician – that’s what the word means. If your musical tastes don’t include his genre, that’s fine, but it doesn’t change his vocation. The man sold a LOT of mylar before he got sent to the pokey … a handful of platinum records gives him the title in spades. Too bad he is such a tool.
No, Jason is highly intelligent and knowledgeable regarding science and math – therefore he uses facts. People who have neither of the aforementioned traits tend to use “alternative facts” (which, if you look up the words “alternative” and “facts” equates to “falsehoods” or “non-truths”). I’m not really sure if there are any people out there who would willingly use the term “alternative facts” regarding their own statements, but if there are, then you should probably assume that they are liars and move on.
No, he got 72 out of 20. 52 bonus points.
It’s not out of the realm of possibilty. When Ed Whitten was in high school he was taking a geometry exam and while pondering how much “show your work” detail he should put into a problem regarding Kepler’s law of elliptical segment areas he worked out an elegant new theorem regarding string relationships of elliptical genus. He wrote out the basics on his exam paper and later used the returned and marked exam the first draft of his submission to the Journal of The American Mathematical Society. I’m pretty sure his high school geometry teacher understood exactly none of it, but if said teacher WAS able to grok what the lad had done, he would be getting somewhere in the neighbourhood of a 350% bonus mark.
Much respect, man, much respect.
Having been on the wrong end of that sort of bullying as a kid, I wouldn’t have (at the time*) thought that it was disproportionate at all. Every kid who was an outsider / not one of the cool kids / different / marginalized imagined this sort of retribution (at least the result, if not the unicorn-based method) toward their tormentors at least once. Fortunately, most of us grew out of it. Sadly, once in a while (see: Columbine) a couple of kids don’t.
The horn’s not just for show, bub.
Riley is on to something here. In “Three Days Of The Condor” Robert Redford’s character is tasked with investigating the possibility of using ice bullets that melt after impact and leave no evidence.
