    They do get that much time off when you add everything up (roughly, at least; but as was mentioned, many work more than required). But they also technically don’t get paid for their time off.

    I hear this all the time and I just don’t think it’s true. One, not every athlete will have the means, transportation, or ability to just transfer. And really, since there are only so many spots available on athletic teams, not everyone can transfer and still play. Many would find the grass isn’t always greener, and I don’t think you’d see nearly as much transferring as you would expect.

    I’ve listened to this a hundred times from quite a few different sources, and I still can’t hear anything but Yanny.

    I’ve heard about this prank, but I don’t think it’s ever been confirmed as actually having been done. For some reason I think I first heard of it from a standup comedy routine.

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Small Claims Advice in BGP Break Room
    Is the guy self employed? If so, since he wouldn’t receive a regular paycheck, it will be impossible to garnish his wages. Not to be a downer, but as TAC said, winning a debt case in small claims is the easy part. Actually getting paid is the hard part. You’re likely one of many that’s waiting to get paid by the guy, and if he had the money to satisfy his debts, you wouldn’t have ended up in small claims court to begin with.

    There are literally millions upon millions of people (kids AND adults)playing these games (myself included on occasion). 99.99999% of would never even consider shooting up a school, or anything else for that matter. If video games were the root cause, we be seeing these events everyday instead of a handful of times a year.

    The participation trophy argument. The only problem is participation trophies have always existed in some form or another. And no kid has ever confused a participation trophy for a major award. The only people who care about participation trophies are the adults who complain about them. And no kid is shooting up a school because he didn’t get one. It seems we’re are attempting to blame these shootings on any and everything except the...

    rjs4470 replied to a thread Direct TV Changes in BGP Break Room
    My guide just switched over last night. It is different, but I’m not having any trouble seeing anything or experiencing any slow navigation. Really, I think it looks pretty good, and I like how they’ve added a quick search/filter tab to the main menu rather than having it buried in a different screen.

    And if you are willing to shoot up a school full of kids, I doubt you're all that worried about the punishment. Most people who commit serious crimes usually aren't all that worried about repercussions.

    That’s a pretty big leap. If they are watching these events play out and decide to do it for the fame, they have to be aware of the likely outcomes. I certainly don’t pretend to be able to put myself in their shoes and know exactly what they are thinking. But often, these events are well planned and thought out. It’s difficult for me to believe that they aren’t aware that the likely outcome is either death, or a severe prison sentence. I’m...

    Who has committed this type of public violence and gotten away with it?? Some (if not most)end up dead, or at the very least, serving a very long, and likely lifetime prison sentence. Those two outcomes are about as serious as repercussions can get.

    I don’t know. But it’s certainly more complicated than the typical answers you hear, mostly which revolve around how much worse this generation is than previous ones. I do think that kids are under more pressure than ever before. Increased schoolwork, high level sports, college expectations, etc, all combined with less unstructured free time, creates tremendous stress. Throw in the normal pressures of growing up, and I think some kids just...

    I don't buy the Church argument either. Over the course of history, plenty of awful things have been done in the name of religion and the Church. And there are plenty of people over the years that attended Church who aren't exactly moral leaders. Simply attending Church won't even come close to solving the issue. I also don't buy the "kids would rather shoot someone than fight" argument either. Spending much of my time around schools over...

    Couldn’t agree more. Violent forms of play have always existed, especially amongst young boys. I think like a lot things mentioned, they are a convenient excuse. Besides violence, video games also require lots of critical thinking, problem solving, and things like resource management, and fine motor skills. Yet we don’t even mention video games when kids display these skills.

    Smaller schools have less bodies to fill out rosters, along with less competition for those spots. Itís not surprising big schools donít have many 3 sport athletes. At bigger schools, itís simply harder to even make some of those teams.

    And I'm not saying poor parenting plays no role either. However, I've seen too many kids over the years become productive adults, despite growing up in terrible situations. You also see kids who have great parents ending up as horrible people. It's really easy to blame parents in these situation, but as you say, there has to be way more to it. If parenting were even at the top of the list, it would be much easier to predict how kids would...

    Maybe. But poor parenting isn’t unique to this generation. Poor parenting has always existed.

    College football hasn’t been the same since Xbox (or any video game system) came to market. Or have the top players since then just not been video gamers? Remember this whole dead period argument exists because kids are now doing stuff year round, not because they have too much time and are using that time to play video games.

    Actually the ring was only $2k. After the jewelry store I went to the electronics store and bought a TV. Came home with about $500 left in my pocket.

    And I completely understand why you carry cash (and lots of it). I can remember two occasions in my entire life when I had over $1k in cash on me. 1st time was in college and in an impromptu trip to Atlantic City, I turned $100 into nearly $10k. The second time was a few years later when I cashed a $3k bonus check from work and brought the money to the jewelry store and bought my girlfriend (who is now my wife) an engagement ring. I do still...

    I did photography as a side hustle for about 10 years. There are a couple problems with this scenario. First, you should absolutely have the finished pics back by now. Even if she were really busy, it shouldn’t take more than a month. I rarely took more than two weeks to return images even working a full time job. Weddings would take longer, but even that would only take 4-6 weeks. At the very least, she should be able to provide the...

    Kind of a different situation, but a couple years ago, while I was back home in Delaware, my wife and were at a toll booth with just a change basket. The toll was .25, but the quarter didn't register when we tossed it in. That quarter was the only change we had (which looking back I find it hard to believe as I always have at least a handful of change in the car), and we don't have Easy Pass, so we just drove off. A month later we got a $75...
