I know quite a few public school teachers, and I would have to say that this assessment is quite unfair. Most of them work very hard with the very few resources provided to them by their administrations and the city. Here in the inner city, most of them are teaching at least 30 kids per classroom. Many of those kids are immigrants with little-to-no English language knowledge and at risk kids with absentee parents. Instead of being able to actually teach children, government and administration force teachers to prepare students for standardized testing. Of course, these tests are in English, and for an administration that won't even pay for a Spanish or Arabic translator, it's impossible to actually expect these teachers to teach the test material with any sort of effectiveness.

I've kept in touch with some teachers from public school and high school (and talk "intimately" with some of them at my college) and there are two volunteers who are teachers that work with me at the homeless shelter and I have to say it sounds like one of the most challenging jobs in the world. The reason why some of them appear apathetic or careless is because they've been either beaten down by the system they work in (politics at work in this field just as much as any other) or by the parents of the kids they've TRIED to help (aka parent because most people think Disney programs should be responsible for instilling morals in children).

Essentially, you can't win as a teacher. You either follow the rules and receive plenty of undo hate for it, or you bend them a little and receive plenty of undo hate for it. And at the end of the day, it's a career like any other, so you can't fault a teacher for looking out for their future. It's challenging enough impossible as it is just to get into a full-time position, and not everyone is content to do that for 50+ years even with all the benefits and pension and "time off".


This x1000. I used to think that teachers complained a lot and were ineffective. When I moved to my current city, I got to know a lot of them and what they actually go through on a day-to-day basis with their kids and the administration politics. There are a lot of layoffs and school closings too. It's enough to make even the most dutiful public servants want to jump off a roof. I'm going to say that most teachers care about their kids tremendously, even the "impossible" kids, but their hands are tied politically when it comes to actually shaping their futures. They find out a few years into their careers that there's just about nothing they can do. The public doesn't want to pay into public schools and the city cares more about doing a million dollar restoration to the historic school facade than hiring translators and ESL specialists to aid children in speaking English. It's a societal failure, not a failure of the teacher to do his/her job.

I'm attempted to say that probably not, but there's probably a website entirely dedicated to those kinds of fetish



It reminds me of an episode of Red Dwarf where Cat says something along the lines of "I look good, I smell good, now I need to find something to have sex with."

Upon coming upon a passed out Lister, he says "I found it."

Red Dwarf is legendary. One of the best comedy shows out there. And also far better science fiction than most of the "serious" sci-fi shows like Star Trek.

Fuck I hate modern computer software. I miss the old days when a form was a simple word document as opposed to some wanky over engineered piece of shit internet based turd created by some IT wanker who is just over engineering it to justify their own pathetic fucking job.

With 90% of business software I use, it was better 5-10 years ago. Biggest example is Excel which is using functionality with every fucking "upgrade", let alone the fucking specialist software I am forced to use. Oh and they don't work half the time - you fill the fucker in and hit submit only for it to either crash, come up with an error or reset the fucker.

Or it's "hey we've upgraded it and you have to upgrade it to have the fucker continue working. That'll cost megadollars please." And then the upgrade is worse than the previous version so you're forced into paying to loose capability.

Are they ever gonna make an 11th season? I don't think they should end it until Lister gets his farm on Fiji like he wanted back at the start.

Yeah, forklifts are a bit like that, too. One feature is improved but 3 others are worse.

It's cause we live in a world obsessed with constant marketing of new products to maintain cashflows and ever unrealistic profit growth expectations. It's like stupid innovations in cars like electric seats or moving the handbrake to the location usually inhabited by a cluth in a manual car. They don't improve the car, just make it more expensive and more maintenance intensive.

Back when I was a young boozer, I slept on footpaths a few times when I couldn't quite make it home due to enebriation (didn't help there was a big fucking hill on the way home). Just a half an hour kip or so to re-energise me. Also slept/passed out on lawns quite a few times.

One of my friends had a nasty tendency to fall asleep whilst vomitting in the toilet. You'd go to the crapper and there he'd be passed out over the bowl.

EDIT: I wonder if this contributted to us not being able to get laid. Do chicks dig passed out drunks lying on footpaths or slouched over toilet bowls?


There were a few times i broke into strangers houses and slept in there beds. I would wake up in a strangers bed and wonder where the fuck i was . One time it was this house way out in the whoppers on a farm, i woke to the sound of chickens in the barn next door. Luckily i never got caught, though another time i could her voices talking upstairs but i quickly escaped out the door

It's probably Obama's fault. One of the journoes in the paper today blames him for pretty much everything bad in the world. ISIS, Putin, China, Boko Horan, all Obama's fault, apparently.

the main problem is not the number of children (overpopulation is not a problem but not in sense of jobs) but in inability to adapt to rising of automation in industry and service sectors . We developed robots to exclude human labor but we did not make new job positions for new human beings that appeared on this earth in meanwhile .

Anyway watch this :

Whilst I totally agree that in the developed world automation is the main contributor to loss of jobs, that's not the case in the less developed world where over population is the main problem. The rates of growth in Africa, the Middle East and countries like India are disastrous.

Sure we can blame it on Obama, even though he wasn't even born when the whole modern globalisation started in the late 1940s! Prick is also responsible for extinction of mammoths, invention gunpowder and sinking of the Titanic.

Of course we can. You can't let facts get in the way of a good argument.

Kashmir is around 2 to -3 degrees(in valley) and in mountains(Sonmargh, Kud, Kupwara etc) is still -11 to -20.

Quite cold i would say.

Really craving....





....A game of toy soldiers! Been too long without them and I feel the urge to push little lead guys around a table and roll some dice. Wife's doing roller derby on my usual nerd night for 3 months.


For those who are like "what the fuck you talking about you degenerate shit eating sheep fucking fuckwit" I am talking about tabletop wargaming which is like Real Time Strategy video games ala Command and Conquer except it's played with real miniatures on miniature terrain made up on a table and is played with dice and tape measure.


Picture of real life nerds doing wargaming - yes it is strangely disturbing and arousing at the same time. It can get quite smelly - many nerds have no qualms with not using deoderant or showering regularly and farting is actively promoting provided the farter claims ownership of the fart by saying "badger" (that part's not a joke).



Yes I am a nerd and one with our god, Steve Urkel...

It's pretty brutal. My wife's a small little thing but she's taken a shine to all things violent (brazillian jiujitsu and now roller derby). Must be the aggravation of being married to me!

Definitely not a perv - some of the girls are scary looking.
