Most places do not check fluids or wash windows unless you ask them to and if you request those things I feel you s...

re: Chris Christie confronts fan at Milwaukee Brewers game - skeeter531
Getting in his face and personal space like that would probably be viewed as threatening and/or assault if it were the other way around, wouldn't it? (Assault doesn't require physical contact) I wish the guy would have SNEEZED all over Christie's nachos. He is such a bully. ...

it is NOT a union thing. The gas station attendants in NJ are not unionized. But it IS a jobs thing. A lot of jobs would be lost. I prefer having someone else pump my gas, so I'm fine with it. ...

re: With no other pressing issues, La Senate mandates cursive writing instruction - skeeter531
The "principal" :banghead: is this: Not everything we learn in school is going to be applicable in the lives of the entire population. That doesn't mean there isn't value in it.

re: Cursive Writing, Should this be mandated in elementary school? - skeeter531
I would like to see it continue. If early handwriting is taught using D'Nealian printing rather than traditional block manuscript, the transition to cursive is very easy and doesn't take long to master. It is also good for fine motor skill development. ...
