I say we go ahead and castrate the kids and shave their heads so you can`t tell any of them apart, they`re wanting everyone to feel like they "belong"
Instead of making it where you might get picked last so you should try harder. If it`s not your thing move on and don`t worry about it. Fuc.k equality if you`re not good at something, they should teach you how to be better not teach everyone who is better how to accept you and lower their skills to match yours.
2) I think that the more and more that educators pull these stupid stunts trying to neuter every child to where they are a mass production of nothingness, the more they begin to advocate home-schooling of children
Kids will always be kids...and taking legos away will not change a damn thing...only make them do exactly the same stuff with something else. Censorships/bans in most forms is just plain stupid. Better to use information to try and solve "problems".
Lats time I checked, there were more socialist/communist countries in Europe than anywhere else in the world.
Those fools, it`s like they`re taking candy from a baby . . .
. . . except it`s taking lego blocks from slightly older babies.
I didn`t want to get into this, but since someone was this stupid about it, I am. Lego is singular, and plural is Lego Bricks/Blocks, and can be shortened to Legos, or just be Lego. It`s sort of like fish, where you can say fish but fishes is correct too. Oh, and your deer thing:deerPronunciation: `dirFunction: nounInflected Form(s): plural deer also deers
And you wouldn`t say "I drank twelve beer," you`d say "I drank twelve beers."
So, to wrap this up, it`s your dialect, not your intelligence. And it`s mainly an American thing to say Legos, but that doesn`t mean Americans are idiots. It`s like making fun of us for saying color instead of colour.
I would have said something about the Lego stuff, but everyone`s said what I think.
I can`t play tag, touch football almost any contact sport in HIGHSCHOOL. Their reasoning is it could lead to fights. OR if it`s mixed gender....well yea I can see this one. I always have to sit on the right side of the bus on the "boys" side. If I sit on the left (Girl Side)I risk getting PERMANETLY kicked off the bus. Sometimes all of the boy side is fully and the girl side is halfway full and we still got to sit 2 to a seat and if it`s still full I have to sit at the BACK away from everyone. God forbid a guy sit with a girl in Highschool.
Would that count as some sort of discrimination? I really want some dirt on my school...
Boy am I proud to live here!
...It just doesn`t feel right. Legos sounds like a short-hand plural that`s more commonly referenced than the `proper` way of saying it. Who gives a f***. They`re practically banned these days. While we`re at it, let`s ban cinder blocks that make up most of our homes as well. They`re lego blocks for adults.
The Schizophrenic Capital of the World.
Just the kids play with the damn lego.
Plus it`s fun! :)
I love legos, they spark imagination and creativity, so why take that away from them?
You never know when your hand might accidently be loaded and shoot a hand bullet at an unsuspecting victim!
I mean, even Nature should have some rules to bar it`s evolution too.
The teachers are blatant communists.
America has gone nuts.
this is why i hate liberals. morons.
i agree man, my little cousin was over today and she is like 7 and saw i had a whole box of Lego bricks and wanted to play with them, so i let her play with them and i helped her build cool stuff, at one point i think i was having more fun and im almost 17.
I also find it ironic that we once hated Communism, yet we are slowly becoming it.
Capitalism is unjust. Life is not fair. You cannot change these things.
kids bully other kids over anything and everything and kids always always fight over toys. so instead of doing their jobs and teaching the kids how to share and work together they just throw away what they THINK is the problem. its teachers like this thats the reason why america has one of the worst education systems in the world.
yeah legos are gonna teach kids capitolism and barbies gonna teach girls how to turn tricks on a corner and GI joes gonna teach kids fachism.
will someone please fire these yuppy morons.
If you don`t like the way the government is run, that is fine. Go protest something, write your congressman, whatever. DO NOT attempt to brainwash the impressionable youth you are being paidto teach and take care of!
I have never met a child that is a "political beings, actively shaping their social and political understandings of ownership and economic equity,”. They are usually too busy being kids to be too concerned with anything remotely political.
When the next Stalin rises up out of S
Guys and girls, for once, im kind proud. And of course, the "politicly correct" and "socialy acceptable" is turning into a joke, i agree with you.
THESE PEOPLE ARE I D I O T S!
All heil. The worst part is, that they give the lower grade kids the WORST teachers.
Here`s an idea. One night when the building is empty, burn it to the ground. Then ask teachers about the absurd idea of private property. Then ship their asses to Russia where they can see the fantastic success that was/is public ownership of everything. Let them see the barter system for bread and the three-eyed fish in the streams. Goddamn, how drating long will it take for these pinko-minded airheads to realize that competition and strive for achievement and advancement is what propels society forward???
Yep, THAT`S what`s good for all of mankind...
I don`t want to live in a world where Legos are banned.
THEY`RE JUST KIDS!!
wow this sounds more ridiculous than preschools teaching investment
I think by save they meant reserve. As in a child picking a certain lego character to represent himself or herself in legotown. Not literally saving them from destruction.
Though I thought it meant the same as you when I first read it, and had to puzzle over that for a while :P
Either that or you were being sarcastic and I missed it.
And soccer is football.....who cares!
The SG-team advised this ban on LEGOs for mankind`s sake.
Sure, we have all the bad455 weapons we`re using in the war and future wars (watch some History and Discovery channel), and we`re growing our generations to become total pascifists under superior control.
Yeah, these dumb4$$es are on a freaking power-trip.
THEY`RE LITTLE BLOCKS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!! I`d be more worried about our kids choking on one out of curiousity than thier "greed factor". Punish our politicians instead. They`re greedier than our kids.
Friggin idiots, but welcome to America.
Or maybe they`re getting ideas for world domination, evil geniuses in the making..
3) Standard sizes? So let`s look at a bigger picture than just lego town. Who`s making the rules here? The teachers, aka the controllers of the `economy` and `government` of legotown. There is always someone with the upper hand even if they`re trying to make it all "fair" by making and enforcing the `rules`.
Sounds like the teachers aren`t trying to make the kids better citizens, they`re just on a power trip.
Lego people can be saved only by a “team” of kids, not by individuals.
All structures will be standard sizes."
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Personally it rings of the red star that the US had so many problems with back in the 80s/90s.
1) Sure everyone is equal because they can all use the buildings...Then the kids will narrow the buildings they like to 2 or 3, so the "owners" of these buildings has more control than anyone else because of what? oh that`s right OWNERSHIP.
They took away legos because children were beginning to learn the social value of ownership....well kids will do that with anything. Even who has the biggest dirt clod or the best shoes, or can do the coolest thing with their eyebrow. You take the kids put them in a bubble and straight jacket them in solitary and then they won`t have that problem.
I dispise teachers who think because they decide something is wrong or bad that they can try their little experiment on their kids in hopes for a "bright new future." Teach the kids what they need to know and help them learn, don`t say "I don`t approve so I`m removing this from your options for you to make a decision, instead I`ll make the decisionfor you and say you did it. Then you`ll continue to make that "decision" out of "freewill" when I reward you for it."
