I have, actually. You might try a couple books I've found to be very helpful in that regard.

Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong

A People's History of the United States

I'm only halfway through the second one, but there's really nothing quite like reading history through the words of everyday people like you and me. Rather than the heroic narrative that glorifies and omits based upon the preferred narrative of the writer.

> If you could explain how supplying school buses to students is a negative thing, even if it was started due to desegregation, I would appreciate it. I'm not asserting that it isn't, I just fail to see it.

Okay, essentially after the Supreme Court handed down Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954 there was a great deal of uproar as school districts found themselves newly unable to segregate schools by race by law or policy; there was a great deal of racist backlash against the implementation of SCOTUS' vision in Brown, i.e. that black and white students receive education in the same classrooms. The backlash took many forms as white school district and elected officials scrambled to find ways to obstruct the courts and maintain de facto segregation. By the late 60s and early 70s, the courts had become exasperated with the lack of progress in ending de facto segregation and began forcing school districts into more systematic schemes to achieve educational integration. Often these schemes involved requiring each individual school in a district to maintain a demographic balance that reflected the racial demographics of the school district as a whole. This resulted in students being assigned to schools on the other side of the district, and they would have to get there by bus. Opposition to busing was two parts. There was upset that white children were being reassigned to geographically closer schools to ones farther away. A great deal of the backlash, however, was whites angry that black students were establishing a presence in schools that were, until then, exclusively white schools. Black parents, on the whole, were pleased to have an opportunity to send their children to qualitatively better schools, and black bused students had better outcomes.

> States rights is NOT a legal justification to Jim Crow laws. Jim Crow laws are unconstitutional

Yes, because there was a series of federal legislation and judicial decisions through the middle of the last century that overturned previous precident and drumroll took away a state's right to enforce Jim Crow laws.

> I've admitted the areas in which I'm ignorant. I am completely open to other points of views, you have simply failed to provide any.

Look, real talk here. If you're an adult, it's no one's job to educate you. It's your job to educate yourself. And in any event you shouldn't be learning your historical facts from dubious strangers on Reddit, especially not one that is of such moral and social import as race and racism. Watch some documentaries about the Civil Rights movement on Netflix or youtube (ones produced by reputable people). Visit a civil rights museum. Read some books. I recommend reading two books concurrently, one a history of race in America (like this) and the other a collection of source texts (I recommend this one). Knowledge of the past should shape how you understand the present.

I highly recommend Lewis' non-fiction works by the way. He's an athiest convert.

The C.S. Lewis Signature Classics contains most of the really good ones, and includes the fictional work The Screwtape Letters as well. The rest are essentially academic studies in book form, but great reading.

Re writing: Get yourself a copy of this, read it on the shitter or the bus or during boring meetings, and mess around with it. Your salary potential explodes with good tech writing capabilities. My blog is all about very niche code shit (eg xlib/xsb in Python to automate action) but I keep it up because it's a great resource in interviews that shows both code ability and writing ability.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but toilet training should take one day if you do it correctly. I know nothing about you. I'm not judging you personally.

Just read this book:

Follow the instructions in the book exactly.

Remember reading one book and spending one day on toilet training is much less work than months of changing diapers. Your daughter sounds awesome, and you are going to have to work extra hard to give her all the tools she needs to succeed.

The name was something plain like "Encyclopedia of Greek Mythology" but I can't recall the author or publisher. However, this and this seem very similar. :)

I work at a data center and my coworker is attempting to figure out how many expensive machines will fit on a cart like this before he has to make a second trip.

"I read Stranger in a Strange Land when it first came out in 1961. It was the most important and influential book I ever read. It changed my life, and the lives of millions of others. Inspired by SISL, I went on to create the real-life Church of All Worlds, which is still going strong over half a century later. The 1961 edition is the essential version, edited by Heinlein himself. The later unedited version issued by his widow is a travesty, as it is sloppy, and omits the single most important line in the entire original edition--Heinlein's definition of "Love" as "That condition in which another person's happiness is essential to your own." I corresponded with Mr. Heinlein extensively in the 1970s, and here are his own words regarding these two versions of SISL:

"SISL was never censored by anyone in any fashion. The first draft was nearly twice as long as the published version. I cut it myself to bring it down to a commercial length. But I did not leave out anything of any importance; I simply trimmed all possible excess verbiage. Perhaps you have noticed that it reads “fast” despite its length; that is why. I WILL FEAR NO EVIL does not read as “fast” because it never received its final trimming; I became extremely ill and could not do it, and would not allow an editor to do it because my stories are fitted together like jigsaw puzzles and it is awfully easy, in trimming, to leave out an essential piece. So I WILL FEAR NO EVIL is not as good a story as SISL, in my opinion--too slow--even though, again in my opinion, what I have said in it is just as important. But I’m pleased enough that I was able to finish it at all; it just missed being posthumous. (Mrs. Heinlein signed the contract; I was too far gone even to write my signature.)
"The original, longest version of SISL is in a fireproof vault of the library of UCSC and can be seen there by any scholar who convinces the special collection librarian that he has a legitimate interest. But it is really not worth your trouble, as it is the same story throughout--simply not as well told. With it is the brushpenned version which shows exactly what was cut out--nothing worth reading, that is. I learned to write for pulp magazines, in which one was paid by the yard rather than by the package; it was not until I started writing for the Saturday Evening Post that I learned the virtue of brevity. (And I am still too wordy in a private communication such as this, or in conversation.)"
(--Robert A. Heinlein to Oberon (Tim) Zell, 2/28/1972, personal correspondence)

I have read the uncut version, and in truth, I can see where he trimmed to tighten it up.

If you enjoyed this story, I recommend the book “Rivethead”.

FYI, the shortest way to type an Amazon link is like so:[product number]. The product number is the one that starts with B0 (usually B00) so, for example, a shorter link to a pair of these touchscreen compatible gloves (these are for operating smartphones with a single finger, not for typing on a full keyboard; they would be just as useless for that as any other pair of gloves) would be

ETA: These are also for arthritis, not warmth.

The reference is an actual dictionary ...

If you prefer the Webster website, then that works just fine too.

Might I suggest the Wiz Biz, by Rick Cook? That's basically the entire premise.

You wear pants? Amateur. Someone actually wrote a book about the company I work for titled "The Year Without Pants":

I don't recall ever getting The Talk, but just had this book in the living room bookshelf. Avoided all sorts of awkward questions back then, I'm sure.

Dear internet friend,


I'm going to try not to sound persnickety, and I suspect I'll fail miserably, but let us consider that the root of the reply you're responding too actually posted the definition of harassment. But, to refresh the difference between the two. I've placed the pertinent lines in bold and italics.




The act or an instance of harassing, or disturbing, pestering, or troubling repeatedly; persecution:




A sudden, violent attack; onslaught: an assault on tradition.

Law: An unlawful physical attack upon another; an attempt or offer to do violence to another, with or without battery, as by holding a stone or club in a threatening manner.

Military. the stage of close combat in an attack.



In this case, the fellow was definitely harassing the woman - General or not - for sex. Thus, sexual harassment. Correctly defining one does not weaken another! If one believes even for a moment this was not the man's intention, then - without an ounce of sarcasm - I'd suggest one takes a look around the library; There are several short, well written methods of reading a person's intent based on wording and body language. While certainly not infallible, I'd think someone constantly advancing themselves towards your hotel room while complimenting your figure (as well as questioning whether your significant other was close enough to interfere) would be clue enough. Not to mention the fact they persisted after being told not too. That's the important bit, you see. It's one thing to flirt, even heavily. It's entirely another matter to keep doing so when told not too.
