re: Franklin Parish Football Player Dies - StringedInstruments on 9/5/15 at 7:48 am
It's rare, but it still scares me. I mean, at the college and NFL levels, the players are all mostly at the same athletic level with a tremendous amount of preparation in the weight room. High school? You could have a 6'2 220 college recruit plow into a 5'8 140 teenager who's out there just ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: How do you feel about severe autistic kids in regular public school classrooms? - StringedInstruments on 9/4/15 at 2:56 pm
Haven't read the thread yet - But I taught a few years at the high school level. Mostly inclusion classes. It can be really fricked up at times. Autistic kids weren't the worst, honestly. At least by high school they were old enough to start making a few decisions on their own. I'm sure medic...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Arizona TV anchor in Spanish- English drama. WYHI Not legit - StringedInstruments on 9/4/15 at 7:23 am
If it's a Spanish word, then it should be pronounced correctly. I worked with a lady who wouldn't pronounce Hispanic kids' names the way they asked. One specific case was a kid named Angel. Pronounced Ahn-Hell. She told him, "We aren't in Mexico, and we pronounce it Ain-Gel here." I unde...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Would using something like a fire stick weaken my wifi? - StringedInstruments on 9/4/15 at 7:01 am
I'm going to call Charter's helpline anyway, but I figured I'd update this thread some. I ran a speed test both from speedtest.net and Charter's own speed test, and both were abysmal. I'm paying for (supposedly) 60 mbps and both speed tests showed me at less than 5. Charter's own speed test said...

Would using something like a fire stick weaken my wifi? - StringedInstruments on 9/3/15 at 8:49 pm
My wifi on my phone is at two bars right now. My wireless router is about twenty feet from me in my guest room. I'm running Amazon Fire Stick and WatchESPN. Would that be causing me to have two bars instead of three? I've noticed this issue the past few days. If I go into my guest room, I get ...

Those of you that can drink a lot of beers/drinks - how do have the room for it? - StringedInstruments on 9/3/15 at 3:10 pm
There's a thread on the F/D board about game day menus. The OP says he's going to make ribs, dirty rice, some other sides and have beers and bourbon.

I don't know if Spielberg is necessarily hating on just superhero movies. But he's absolutely right about movie genres (and really, all art) being cyclical. One day people won't really give a shite about superhero movies. Could be a few decades from now, but it'll happen....
