As well as the strength of a raging fire.
Or Anne Frank.
Sounds like my government class. Our last paper, nobody got higher than a B and he wrote on every single paper that it was because we didn't compare American government to Swedish government. In cas you're wOndering, the prompt was, "Describe how democracy can accommodate both capitalism and socialism." That's it. You'd think that if it was such a huge deal, he'd have told us to mention Sweden in the paper, rather than have the entire class get at most a B for the exact same reason. And write it as a comment on every single paper. Seems like that would have saved him some time.
Thank you. I'd like to see OP try show choir and then pass judgment. My friends are all in band, and they act the same way, like their entire lives are marching band and everyone else is second-rate. But I'd like to see them try singing and dancing at the same time and then talk about how "easy" it is.
And that reminds me of the woman who sued McDonald's for not putting a "Caution: Hot" warning label on their coffee cups. And won. If that's not a sign of a screwed-up society, I don't know what is.
Ha. Nice one (:
That's exactly when I thought when I saw this. Fail.
I have a friend who was listening to Skillet in her room one day and her mom came in screaming "DEVIL CHILD!!" because of it. I was amused.
Danny Zuko or Prince Zuko of the fire nation? I feel this needs to be specified.
Queen never said exactly what the song is about, but they said part of their inspiration for it was the novel "The Stranger" by Albert Camus, which is about a guy who is completely apathetic towards everything ("nothing really matters"). The only person he has any connection to is his mother, hence the beginning of the song is addressing "Mama." Halfway through the book, he kills a man because, long story short, the sun was in his eyes (there's more to it, and the guy he kills is significant, but it's complicated). The second half of the book deals with the trial, in which he is proven guilty based on circumstantial evidence and clouded judgment, and is sentenced to death. So the murder/court case model is basically correct, just with a little more context. I highly recommend the book, too - it's not my favorite, but it really makes you think. Also, like I said, it doesn't explain the entire song, but it comes pretty close.
Because no one has a lighter anymore.
Hey girls, I'm a guy. I play with your feelings and get you to trust me completely. I take everything as a joke and I'm afraid of commitment. As soon as things get too serious, I'm out. I don't care if I hurt you, as long as I get laid.
This makes just about as sense. Just sayin'.
Cheerleading is sexist. The only reason cheerleading was created was that girls couldn't actually participate in sports, so it ended up being, "Oh, hey, I have an idea, how about the girls just stand there and cheer for the guys?"
I agree, competitive cheerleading should be considered a sport, but simply cheering at MEN'S sporting events is an antiquated system that shows the implication that men are superior to women...and one that is regularly enabled by high schools, universities, and professional sports leagues. That is my problem with cheerleading, not the fact that it's not terribly strenuous physical activity.
