Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 4863

What was the topic? 

post #72932 of 85767
It's embarrassing to say, now that I have time to think about it there's some good points. It was, persuade an audience of college students on whether or not one year of national service should be mandatory. I wasn't sure if it meant military, or working for the government in general, etc. facepalm.gif It was the last class I needed for my CCAF degree, which is about as useful as a piss on a forest fire, so I'm not too upset.

It is to test your ability to develop an argumentation .

You could have also started with the different options around the concept of national service.

Some countries have civic national service .

You could have spoken about the different trends around the world .

European countries tend to opt now for a more professional small in numbers army when others countries need to enrol in mass in case of a conflict like Israel and so on.

You could have spoken about the cost and also the social impact of a national service on populations.

There is a massive debate in Europe about the return of a national service especially to respond to the need of a better social/ethnic cohesion despite the relative cost and the poor level of combat ability gained during that year.

It was a fascinating subject.

you couild have taken the SF approach:

"listen, guys, there's a lot of riff raf out there that could use a bit of serving time. The smart ones, like all of us in the room, and the rich ones will always get out of service. I say why not implement this."

An audience of college students? Easy.

"Your whole life has been scripted for you by the 'rents and the 1% of society when you really have only wanted to follow your joy. A national program, FUNDED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, designed to let you follow your joy for an entire year! Etc."

99% would vote yes.

When in doubt just start quoting the Ezekial 25:17 speech from Jules from Pulp Fiction.

Here's the thing there are so many good songs out there that it's impossible to listen to them all to where some of them just go unlistened to. And so you can guess what I did I made a recording that "mashed together" all the songs I like. But the resultant song sounded like a bad sound. And so now I'm back to not listening to a lot of my favorite songs.

L'inc, can you share the mashed song with us? please?

The ridiculous part is that I can stream all these local channels in good quality on my HTPC...ditto for all of the shows on demand. If I didn't have an HTPC, I'd be stuck with some RCA-jack shit. Technically I get a bunch of basic cable channels included with the assessments in this building too...and its not like I ever watch those.

The bullshit scam part is that she never said anything about HD on the phone. Sure, it is my fault for assuming that my channels would be HD, but the fact that comcast didn't try to upsell me on the HD content means they were trying to slip this shit by me (when has comcast ever not tried to upsell you?).

We did exactly that for the same reason. We got some SD boxc and it came with 5 channels, which is less than we get over the air, but it saved us $10/mo from just internet.

When my shoe laces come untied I feel like it is a metaphor for my life basically unravelling to where I lose my compolesure of mente.

Stop tying Granny knots and start tying Reef knots.
post #72943 of 85767
Yeah, I didn't realize until freshman year of college that I was tying my shoes wrong...and I am a boy scout and a sailor who would never willingly tie a fricking granny knot!.

Now whenever I am on the train, I can't help noticing which full-grown adults don't know how to tie their shoes right.

Yeah you're way better than those losers. Your way is obviously the right way and they are wrong.

I don't know if you know this, but granny knots are definitively wrong.

Most people can correct this by simply tying their starting half knot in the opposite direction and then tying their shoes as they normally would.
