5AF Parenting Thread

i got this kids book that has 1 letter per page, and a bunch of pictures that go with that letter. so the "D" page would say something like, "dancing dragons dangling" and show dragons, and dice and a dunebuggy or whatever. so i get to the N page, and i swear there's a swastika drawn faintly in the...

I find it unbelievable that of all the things that could be faked, people think the #poopswastika was a hoax. I mean, if it was, I want to know how many cases deep they were when they decided on creating that to be the tipping point.

Let's not be dramatic guys, every school from elementary on up has a handbook that protects against people being bullied, hate speech, etc. It's supposed to be a place for civilized thought (and yes, you should be challenged to adjust your world view but that doesn't involve being verbally assaulted...

I looked into Tim Wolfe's background and he had zero academic management experience. Now that's not 100% required and some high profile people have very successfully made the switch. Having said, management (even at lower level like myself) is a very different beast in a university setting. It seem...

Demands 1 & 2 were ridiculous and personal. They have very little to do with changing the "climate" at the university. #3 is basically the same as the 4-8. #4 was already done by Loftin for all incoming students; I'm sure faculty has to undergo harassment training, so in 3 years this would already b...

Story in a nutshell: People don't like being called the N word (which near as I can tell are the only race related complaints) and that makes it a "hostile and unsafe campus" (there's been no documented racial physical violence that I have read). Instead of showing empathy, the system Prez basically...

So Dr Ben did double down on the horrible media after all. Which is actually a no brainer. Nothing riles up your base like saying everybody in the press is out to get you.

Thank you sir. I lucked into a great one in college and loved the feel, but since I was in college it obviously disappeared. Been meaning to pick some up to feel nostalgic again.

Obviously, all those workplaces are empty today because people took off to celebrate. Or wash ink stains out of their clothes. Or both.

I can tell you this has been an issue in Sweden for at least the last five years. Our factory there was in a nice sea side town, that as more Muslim immigrants arrived the locals refused to put us up at the local hotel for fear of our "safety."

5AF NASCAR thread (all levels including ARCA, ASA, etc)

I hate the argument that this new Chase format makes every race more important so Matt's penalty should be higher. In the old format you couldn't finish dead last two weeks in a row, win the third race and have a chance for the title. In a way it actually diminishes the importance of a race because ...
