No problem with that, except that they get on the two treadmills as far from each other as possible, a few empty machines in between them, then carried on a long and very loud conversation. They were nearly yelling so they could be heard over the gym sounds and the distance.

Ughughughugh.

peasants. just like the PE teacher sitting opposite me in the teachers office who is slurping his ramyeon and chewing with his mouth so wide open that people in the building next door can probably hear it.

how is anyone supposed to think that koreans are actually civilized when this type of behavior happens on a daily basis?

the winter Olympics is really going to be a massive eye-opener for a lot of foreign visitors who come here.

EDIT: now that the ramyeon eating has finished the public burping has commenced. **** me ....

1-1 Sens vs Penguins. Go Sens.

Pittsburgh gets a power play with 8 mins left. They score.

2-1 Penguins.

There's 6 mins left now.

Ugh.

You must be working at my former school (doubt there is more than one PE teacher with that sort of behavior). ;)

I've been asked to make a reading test for my Gr.3's (elementary). I can only use vocabularly from one lesson chapter. I make the test and show it to my CT's.  They claim the words "up" and "down" are too difficult and ask me to remake the test using nouns.  So I remake the test with "book", "melon" etc.  Again, too difficult.  I ask if they want me to just use the letters and make it more of a phonics quiz.  Nope, that's not allowed because the curriculum demands a reading test.
Somehow I have to make a reading test that doesn't use any words. :cry:

***Public service announcement*** We are approaching page 300 on this thread, which is, I believe close to the upper limit allotted for thread lengths. Screen cap everything if you want to preserve other people's misery for posterity, 'cause it may all vanish soon just like its previous iterations!

Like all the best apocalyptic prophecies, this one was ahead of its time. Perhaps 500 pages, then?

and since I'm mining the archive....

I was out eating dinner with my bf and I dropped my fork and quickly picked it up and kept using it. My bf snickered and mentioned something about Americans and the 5 second rule.
    I used to get comments like this all the time (I'm clumsy). Now, I just immediately go on and on and on about the 'hygiene hypothesis' and how overly sterile environments can lead to all sorts of auto-immune disorders such as allergies and asthma and blablabla. I'm not entirely convinced all of it is true but it does tend to prevent people from commenting the next time I inevitably drop something.  :smiley:

I’m a Doctor. If I Drop Food on the Kitchen Floor, I Still Eat It.

Even if you don't believe all the blah blah about overly sterile environments, you might at least rest assured that the floor is probably cleaner than a lot of other things you've touched.

And since I'm on a kyndo post kick...

Obviously I was, uh, using the base 12 system of counting. Because of my Mayan ancestry. 300, in your Western (and clearly inferior) method of counting would be 432 (3*12*12)

     Random touching of buttons! (and researching a tiny little bit about Simple Machines website coding)
    Still trying to figure out how to resize youtube inserts though.
    Anybody? Pleeeeeeeeeease?
    Because I would love to go to the "What Are You Listening To?" thread and yell at folk there about their filthily large video inserts.

High of 92 today and the AC still isn't going to be turned on. I am coping with an ice pack down my pants.

IIRC the last thread died because the OP deleted her account. If OP deletes their account, then every thread OP created will also be deleted. As for the limit on how many pages a thread can reach, I have not a clue.

Is it simply being stubborn that America will not catch up with the rest of the world and use metric instead of imperial, and use celsius when measuring temperature?

It infuriates me that I have to constantly convert a measurements when reading american books or websites.  It's like they think no one else outside of America will read it or perhaps they simply don't give a crap if anyone does.
