I still think they should make a mario movie based on the videos for the gamecube mario sports games.

It's ok. The devices are pretty cool on their own.

Oh I agree. The purpose and actual use are very different.

Was it mechanical or videogame? There have been horse racing games since the 1920's.

I made a playlist of my study on fronts. Now you can watch it all in one sitting.

I cover the history of fronts, show examples, and also why they are used. Then I ask what could be a front in our modern era. I show what it would be like to be in that front, and then examples of what I think are fronts.

This would explain why some religions make sure to have small congregations. It keeps the group working together.

I haven't read it, but am not surprised it is found in the book series and said by that character.

I think that was the original reason why HR existed. Someone needed to translate between marketing, design, engineering and accounting and the boss was too drunk to care.

It's a common problem. People assume that everyone has lived exactly like them, so it's hard to register the differences. Far worse, it's hard to teach those differences and how to respond. Especially when one side thinks it's helping but hasn't a clue.

I think telling them can also help.

I've worked with refugees and immigrants. They made a lot of mistakes because no one was willing to tell them. For example, there are a lot of broken toilets along truck lines because the African trucker doesn't know you have to use the toilet like a chair.

I'll make sure to ask the next one I hang out with.

Man grunts

I loved how near the end of Home Improvement Jill still gets angry at Tim, and has to realize she is the one making mistakes now.

That's a good insight. Most people stay at five years old unless corrected in some way or another.

It's true, none of the women I know have known about the societal expectations.

Sounds like sports when the fans are blaming the ref for the team not scoring as well. It's not a collective, it's a tribal false collective.

I like your response to how it should work. Any other examples?

Yeah, they try to look like locals or how locals would like them. Which is why they arrived clean shaven, and then grew beards.

Ignorance is a common reason for destruction. When US soldiers arrived in Iraq they tried common American looks and techniques to talk to people. Clean Shaven represents a prisoner in Middle Eastern Culture. So it was used a lot by terror groups to show why Americans shouldn't be trusted.

It's also why Special Forces grew beards.

Many businessmen in Iraq are clean shaven now to meet with Americans.

But that buffer period for just this small thing was very destructive.

If the answer is something simple that someone doesn't know about, then we can shorten that buffer period a lot sooner.

Microsoft seems to be really pushing that they are still in the Console business right now. This is usually the line they give right before dropping something...

This reads like the trials for lesser humans in the early 20th century. It ended in the same result of sterilization.

People who want to help but stay on top are quite evil.

Such a strange woman. Argentines are confused by her. By declaring war and beating the military, she helped end the occupation. Then you have to ask why on earth England wants the islands in the first place!?

You should try the DMV in Yakima. It takes so long to get anything done, it was easier and faster to drive to Ellensburg 45 minutes away and take care of things there.

I'm going to guess the smart kids weren't allowed to move ahead in the studies or figure out other stuff so teaching would be easier.

I think the Sikhs were trying to organize stuff, but I haven't heard. I do know the Arabic communities are surprisingly free of rioters.
