re: What's your earliest memory in life? - UGATiger26
Apparently, I was 2. I know that's rare, but my parents say that's how old I would've been. My uncle set up a treasure hunt for my brothers and cousins, and I remember finding the treasure chest like it was yesterday. I could go back to their old house and point out the very spot with ease. ...

[quote]Sounds like you're trying to make it a race issue though[/quote] I wasn't trying to. I just typed that out for [i]this[/i] particular situation. It's more about perceived disrespect and saving face, which, in certain cultures, is an impetus for violence. ...

[quote]Well that didn't take long for the race card to be pulled out. There is nothing to suggest he wouldn't have done the same thing to a black teacher who took his phone. [/quote] Whatever. Substitute "teacher" for "old, white man." I don't care. It's not a race issue. It's a cultural issue. A...

[quote]Which has been going on for sixty years at least.[/quote] Peachy. So all is well. I know that this isn't a (relatively) new phenomenon in the classroom. I'm more concerned over teachers not defending themselves. Had the teacher in this video had his head split open on a desk and need...

[quote]What? haha. You think this video is representative or "our" schools? [/quote] By "our" I'm assuming the OP just meant U.S. Public schools in general. And no, this isn't the first time I've seen: A) a student attack a teacher Or B) a teacher or other school staff afraid to do an...

re: A sad video that shows the state of our schools - thug student attacks teacher - UGATiger26
What's sad about this situation is you can sense the cultural attitude that spawned this event. "You ain't gonna let an old white man just jack your phone like that, are you? You better show him what time it is." ...

re: Are gift cards the biggest racket of modern times? - UGATiger26
I ALWAYS prefer gift cards, and it irks me when people say "I don't want to give you a gift card. That doesn't require any thought." Well shit, it's not like you're gonna be getting me a Rolex otherwise. Most likely, you're gonna get me some $20 trinket from Brookstone that I won't use. Why i...

re: OT interview attire question - UGATiger26
[quote]Also, if I am hiring someone and they come in in a suit, you don't necessarily get a good read.

[quote]What? It's Islam that is acting out in violence not Christians! [/quote] Yes, you're correct. Maybe "violence" wasn't the best term he could've used, but I get what he's saying. All the Pope is essentially saying is "be the bigger person." Is it simplistic? Yes, it is. But then agai...
