Re: I need an interpreter

When I visited Australia this year, I noticed they have trouble with their "r"s. Cairns is pronounced Cans and Melbourne is pronounced Melbin.

Re: Teens putting off sex/driving/dating/booze

I agree that technology has had a role - just that cell phones and texting are probably not the only factor.

I did include TV. Yes, I should have been a little more broad and blamed technology. Cable TV and computers first, then [more]

Re: Teens putting off sex/driving/dating/booze

I have a far simpler explanation than stress about the future or lead levels. I think cell phones and social media is a reason. On a plot similar to the lead levels, plot percentage of kids with cell phones and teenage birthrates over the years. [more]

Re: The Traps of Being Poor

So - yeah. If you're not a history major, let that AP history credit work for you, but if the AP credit is in a class you're going to actually use, well...think twice. Her school was right in not letting her take that [more]

Re: Remember Car Buyers Market/ I hate dealers

Dealer = pay some crook who is getting a car either at auction for 1/2 price or on a trade for 1/2 price. Contradict the argument if you can.

You don't work for free and neither do the dealers.

Cemeteries (e.g., 'Salem's Lot, Pet Sematary)

Aren't cemeteries scary without the help of Stephan King? How many people take nightly walks through cemeteries?

Re: The Traps of Being Poor

Those "college prep" and language classes in high school might earn someone 30 or 40 of those 120 college credits before they even start. A big head start, saving a lot of college tuition money.

Re: China doesn't want our scrap

There's the link on Tim's reply. I guess anyone could have looked it up, but thank you, Tim.

Re: How to pick an architect

Do you really want a wood stove? My parents had one and we heated the house the whole winter on it. The problem with them is that the heat is not very even. It's not even two ways. The first is that it's much warmer in the room the wood stove [more]

Re: Retirement Income Literacy Quiz

So I guess that brings the question, were the reported scores so low because the participants were like you and didn't care, or is the rate of financial literacy really that low.

Re: Kaspersky

I run Kaspersky on my computers and I'm not all that concerned. As an antivirus, it works great and consistently scores near the top in testing lab reports.
