    Should we lower the age of adulthood in the US to be 16?

    Most of the discussion is around suffrage, but are we talking the age of adulthood in general? As in, you're no longer a child. You can sign contracts. You're your own guarantor. Parents have no further legal responsibility; child support/welfare payments stop, they can kick kids out of the house if they don't want you there. They can work full-time jobs without hitting child labor laws. I'm not sure what else. Military service?
  2. Wait, they stopped teaching this way? Sounding it out was big when I was taught to read, and we had lessons around consonant and vowel sounds in first grade. I do remember pictures and letter of the week macaroni art in pre-school, but that was more about learning the alphabet itself than reading.

    Vote On Forum Description of Trump Supporters

    Was the double use of "other people" instead of just saying "people" there a stealth comment on othering?

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    Um. I really hope you only mean culturally, given that Sweet Pea was implying a genetic argument. There are literally still living siblings on both sides of that border.

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    White dude with dreads. Or white rapper. Or just a white person who listens to rap.

    What is the largest country in history?

    It's a fact. Much like the fact Robert Jordan sold out.

    Oh No

    Sadly (or maybe happily?) I've never seen CSI Miami, either.

    Oh No

    Having never seen Magnum P.I., this just looks bad. Maybe if the lead could act.

    What was the last time you had your "mind blown"?

    Reptiles run the gamut. Snakes are ZW, iguanas are XY, turtle clutches can be male or female depending on if the clutch is cooler or warmer.
  10. NSA Triples Collection of U.S. phone records under Trump This after the FISA section to search American e-mails without a warrant got extended in January, despite Trump's schizophrenic stance on it. Oh for the innocent days of library book surveillance.
  11. I'd heard there was only one extra scene for Infinity War. But apparently there may be a second, Ant-Man focused scene?
  12. Never really liked the New Gods. Hope that DC can put out another decent DCEU movie though.

    What Do You Do When You Are Bored?

    Well, yeah. What, did you think I was punning on the word "bored?"
