You know those moments when you want to cry and hug someone, but can’t do either because you don’t want to let yourself break down? the moment when you’re feeling so alone? and everything is hurting you? that you feel so helpless? the only thoughts that are in your head are negative and it makes you feel totally alone, like you don’t mean anything to anyone. all you want to do is tell someone how you feel, but you don’t want their pity, and even if you could tell someone, nothing would come out right. you don’t want to laugh or smile, or whine, or argue, or even be stubborn or difficult, you just want to go to bed and cry and hope this feeling passes, and sometimes it does, but it always seems to come back. you feel like you will probably search your whole life for that one person that you can totally trust that you can love forever, who will never ever hurt you, but you know somewhere deep down that you’ll probably never find him. he probably doesn’t even exist, so you just give up, you want so desperately to be alone, but at the same time you fear it so much…

Ps :- “I put on a smile and say I’m fine and try to hide the sadness I feel inside. But when I’m alone the tears start to flow and I can no longer hold them inside.…right now all I need is someone to tell me that everything will be okay.” :p

What is Common Core math stuff? I haven't heard of it before today, is it more obama plan stuff? From the looks of some of the math problems, that would explain a lot.
The Daily Caller exposed a video showing a curriculum coordinator in suburban Chicago perkily explained that Common Core allows students to be totally right if they say 3 x 4 = 11 as long as they spout something about the necessarily faulty reasoning they used to get to that wrong answer
Yeah, I saw where it's Chicago but according to the site, it is being implemented in 45 states (maybe bambam made it mandatory)? If you watch the vid, it doesn't say the student would be totally right but it does say the student can explain the explain the wrong answer & that's what the program is really concerned about. They still would supposedly correct the student.

What the hell does this have to do with math?
In February, a group of Common Core-aligned math — math — lessons oozed out of the woodwork which require teachers to ask students if the 2000 presidential election was fair and which refer to Lincoln’s religion as either “liberal” or nothing.
Since when are there only two religions, and since when is 'liberal' actually considered a religion?
Sure, we joke like it is a religion at times but it takes more than sarcasm to merit a religion.
Apparently grade school math is the new political arena

It is actually a nationwide initiative. It supposedly focuses less on rote learning and more on developing the skills to determine the correct answer. I admit to mixed emotions about any of the recent attempts to improve what/how children learn. The "high stakes" testing approach seems to kill the actual teaching of critical thinking skills (and leads to teachers teaching the test to keep scores up). Anything that improves our youngsters basic skills is alright with me. It is painful to watch the teenagers at Mickey D's try to determine the correct change when the register doesn't tell them the amount.

As usual, I have more questions than answers.
Karma. Serving up justice one a**hole at a time.

Did you see/figure out the how many bags question? (Names were changed to protect the stupid)

Don CarlosDiegoChihuahuaNoceles wants to give away bags of crack to potential clients. He wants to give the same amount of crack to each of his potential new friends. He is not sure if he needs 4 bags of crack or 6 bags of crack. How much crack should he get to ensure there is none left over for when the Federales come searching?

The only answer I can come up with this information is zero.

Did I miss some? There are too many unknown variables. How much crack does he have? How many clients? What is the weight of the bags? Also at the end should 'get' be changed to 'give'? I figure he's trying to dump his supply. I might be over-analyzing this but I might be over-tequilaed.

Public school taught me *just* the right amount of math to do crack deals :laugh:

Anyone have a good idea for getting birds out of an office?

We can't find how they get in but every now & then we end up with a bird flying around inside the office. None of the vents are really big enough to let them through and yet, here they are (dang-blasted Houdini birds). We know it's not through the doors.
If it were just standard 10ft ceilings we'd just open a window & herd the bird in that direction. But no, we have skylights that are ~18ft up with a little ledge for them to perch on. They head for those & have to be forced out, usually by throwing things at them. The skylights can't be opened.
BB/pellet guns are not an option, same with actual firearms :skep:
I looked up compressed air "net guns" but most of those are too big, remember this is just inside an office. I think I can scale down a couple of versions I found online but was wondering if anyone had better plans for one or better ideas?

My sleep depraved mind ;) has come up with an idea to mess with one of the anti-gunners I know.
I need some stickers made up. Subject is no firearms allowed, knives ok.
I was thinking the no guns sign similar to what Chicago is having fits about since she is from that area. (Gun silhouette with red circle & slash across)
And then beside that, a bowie knife/switchblade/stiletto knife (not stiletto heels Jeff) with green circle around it.
Put the words below that, "no firearms allowed, knives ok"

:laugh:
