For real. They are in charge of the futures of children. It's up to them to teach them basic skills and give them a good education so they have opportunities and shit. It's an important job that deserves a lot more pay and respect than what they get. » 11/26/14 4:45pm Today 4:45pm

Yeah, I was just thinking about that. I was wondering, in countries where war and fighting are rampant and a part of every day life, do people glamorize it like Americans do? TV and movie violence here often don't really show the consequences of violence, like, people can get shot and there's little to no blood on… » 11/26/14 12:45pm Today 12:45pm

Pro-life politicians and leaders and the like usually give an exception for rape, and a lot… » 11/22/14 10:27pm Saturday 10:27pm

ATLA got screwed with a bit. Legend of Korra, I'm wondering if it gets poor treatment because it's not aimed for Nick's usual audience. The show seems to be made more for teenagers and adults than children, and I imagine that Nick just didn't know what to do with it. They don't have a timeslot that would work for a… » 11/22/14 6:59pm Saturday 6:59pm

I don't know about Denmark, but I've noticed that toys in general have gotten more gender divided. It's a money thing. Say you've got a family with multiple kids, some boys and some girls. If you make a gender neutral toy, the parents might buy one toy and have the kids share. But make only "boy" and "girl" versions,… » 11/22/14 6:46pm Saturday 6:46pm
