I'm confused. So if everyone has the virus, why would eating Bob (if bitten) turn them? I thought you had to die for the virus to activate? Maybe I'm starting to confuse zombie lore here

 

Furthermore, I have done a full 180 on Bob and this show. Love love love this season so far

I figure that might be a good general synopsis of the next episode, minus the Daryl/Carol arc.




#3033319 Leasing my first car.

Posted by Bronn on 20 October 2014 - 02:16 PM

FWIW, and sorry to keep discussing the buying aspect, but you can piss away a lot of money by buying all the time too. I know from experience. We've bought and sold cars outright for like the past 5 years.

 

Depreciation is a bitch, and at least with leasing you're not going to have to worry about resale value because you aren't the end user for that part of a car's life. We learned the hard way that you have to get a lot of use out of a car if you buy it outright.

 

 




#3033310 What if we distributed private school vouchers

Posted by Bronn on 20 October 2014 - 02:12 PM

That's what I keep hearing, it's not what I'm seeing though.

 

I think I see it more on the student end of things rather than the teacher/classroom thing.

I'm not even saying more money in the home could help, but it would at least be a start.

That won't happen though, because they have to keep a social hierarchy and keep the poor poor and dumb.




#3033237 What if we distributed private school vouchers

Posted by Bronn on 20 October 2014 - 01:54 PM

You're talking about a voucher...not the curriculum.  Curriculum and testing still has to meet state education guidelines.  I think that's pretty clear right now except to religious bigots that use this as a way of mocking believers or the racists they believe to be behind every door.

 

http://nces.ed.gov/p...dicator_cgc.asp

 

2011-2012 PreK-12 at least somewhat religious private school enrollees like 4.1 million

2011-2012 PreK-12 non religious private school enrollees, just over 1 million

2011-2012 PreK-12 Public school enrollees - just shy of 50 million

 

older data, but from 2007-2008

 

http://nces.ed.gov/f...splay.asp?id=55

 

public schools - 58% white, 20% hispanic, 16% black, 4% asian/pacific islander, 1% native american/alaskan

private schools - 74% white, 10% black, 9% hispanic, 6% asian/pacific islander, 1% native american/alaskan

 

Religion in private schools - students are 4-1 in favor

Race in private schools - nearly 3/4ths white

 

But that mocking of believers or fear of racists is totally unfounded guys!
 




#3033058 Your Libertarian Senate Candidate - Vote 3rd Party!

Posted by Bronn on 20 October 2014 - 12:39 PM

I can't really... just a feeling, idk?

 

I read the article... granted that's the only thing I've seen about this guy.

 

I don't really disagree with his stances... he seems to be mostly anti-war, which is fine...  

 

 

My main issue in the past for voting third party is taking a vote away from someone who, although not ideal, is not as bad as the other candidate.  In this particular race, both Hagan and Tillis are nothing but party shills who I want nothing to do with, so I guess it doesn't matter.

 

To me, that is another reason why it is important to vote for this guy.

If we all keep with the mentality that either of them (Hagan or Tillis) is going to win anyway, then you're not voting for what you want to begin with. That is a failed democracy.

If third party candidates can legitimately get a chunk of the vote, it will either increase their popularity and shed more light on them or, at the very least, make the other two parties realize that the people aren't happy with either of them.




#3032887 Your Libertarian Senate Candidate - Vote 3rd Party!

Posted by Bronn on 20 October 2014 - 11:23 AM

I've found it kind of hard not to agree with a lot Haugh has to say and believes in. He'll definitely get my vote, and I won't relegate it to as simple of a statment as "because I don't like either of the other choices."

 

That's a big part of it, but everything I've seen out of Haugh makes me want to see more people like him in the political spectrum.

I'm a registered independent that usually votes mostly democrat or third party, but he has definitely earned my vote the old fashioned "represent the people" way.

 

 




#3032647 I can go literally anywhere. where should i go

Posted by Bronn on 20 October 2014 - 09:29 AM

It isn't exotic or anything, but my suggestion would be:

Somewhere with a historical context as being "frontier" in the western US.

You could draw on the historical aspects of expansion and the displacement and oppression of indigenous peoples. Not only that, but you could draw parallels and differences between frontier living and the lifestyle that technology has afforded us today. You could then compare your lifestyle as a European American in typical American society to that of Native Americans' lives on reservations.

 

Again, it isn't the most exotic, but I think it would be really interesting. You could really rough it for the full experience on most of the trip, and you'd probably save a lot of money too.
