Dude, Len, Shut up. Not everyone believes the same thing, and not everyone believes the bible word for word. Stop shoving your religion down everyone's throats.

Ghosts are departed souls. Surely that is enough to coordinate movement.

Well, according to science that wouldn't be enough, as they wouldn't be material and be able to move themselves in that way or manipulate objects, but screw that. Just because you don't know how something happens doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

I won't protest any laws congressmen are bringing to the table regarding bans of assault weapons, BUT it's still unconstitutional. Sure, nobody needs an AK-47 but if a law abiding citizen has the money to purchase one, they have every right to.

And call me heartless, but the person to blame for the Newtown shooting was the mother of Adam Lanza for giving her mentally unstable son access to such weapons. There is no need to take away rights of others because of this. It's like when a teacher punishes the whole class for something one student did. It's simply unfair.

What about the people who hide their emotions about these things. There are many children who are socially awkward, yet they don't kill anyone. The mom most likely didn't know that her son was mentally unstable. She probably also didn't know that their were even guns in the house. By what I've heard about her, she was very strict and always tried to do the best for her children. If she knew that he was this way, I'm sure she would have tried to get him help.

Could you please give me a link for this post because I remember coming up with this when I was walking by a TV on and seeing a fight going on on Muary and thinking, wow this is trash. It is original. Seriously, send me the link.

For the last time, this is not a fact, so stop treating it like one. He's seen other kids handwriting. He works in a freaking school! His classrooms are borrowed from regular teachers. It's an observation and it may very well be totally and outrageously false! I already said it has absolutely no ground in the prior post, so we already agree on that. It seems we may be arguing for the same thing this entire time! There is zero evidence. It's just something he said he noticed.

Ok, I tried to be nice, but obviously with you that's not going to work. He's worked for 15 years with only kids with an IQ of 130 and higher. He has to read what they write. He's seen over 500 kids through this. I said "FROM WHAT HE OBSERVED". In what way does that make me generalizing? All my info was based off of him and what I see myself do. I think the gifted program is stupid, but these kids still have an IQ of over 130, so why italicize the word gifted? Are you trying to make it sound like that doesn't exist? I know it's stupid, but still.

I NEVER said directly that being smart directly made you have bad handwriting either, so you're causation point is void. I was just agreeing with the original post, which could be based off either correlation or causation. It doesn't matter which. Everything I say is based off that teacher or me. No one else. It has nothing to back it up and means nothing. It was just a comment of mine and should not have been a reason to jump on me.

That's just what he has observed. He works with kids who are "smarter" and he just notices that. That's his job. I've noticed it too. Most of my friends fall in to that stupid "gifted" group, and tend to have worse handwriting. We can't be neat. Why worry with neatness and take your time when you can get more down in less time. We just think too fast. Most of the time it gets us in trouble. The whole gifted labeling is stupid in itself, but that's what I have noticed from people who are labeled that way. And we have almost no patience so our names are messy too. It's all just us trying to get things done in a short amount of time to move on to something else.

From what I've heard from my gifted teacher, for boys, the smarter they are the messier their handwriting tends to be because they just try to write all their info down. For girls it doesn't seem to make a difference.

You think the U.S. doesn't have true freedom? One, of course not! That would be anarchy. and two, the United States is one of the most free countries in the world. We have it better than 95% of other countries, who at least restrict a little more than us. Btw I do like this quote, I just like to argue everything!

Ugg. Europeans, almost all of your idea's originated or evolved from right after the Medieval times. At that time almost everything was copied from ancient Rome. Everybody copies things. The USA does indeed have it's own culture. It's a mix of a bunch of different things immigrants brought over.
