I hate to say this, but my dad. I don't like him much, as he was never there for me, but in the times where he was acting like a father.. he taught me to grasp education, to accept what i have and make the best of it, and to be grateful. he grew up in the projects, so no matter how fragile my relationship is with him, i can't help but take his lessons to heart.
Being wary of someone and discriminating against someone are two completely different things. I wasn't so much trying to make my point of 'that person was in a gang, who cares?', but rather I was angered when she said 'discrimination is okay.' As someone who has been discriminated against, I found that both utterly offensive and ridiculous.
Although I do understand what you mean, people in my family have been in gangs and some have joined the ROTC or actual Military, and have bettered themselves. Besides, would someone be as stupid as to actually join the police with a gang tattoo, planning on using those techniques to teach the rest of the gang? If they were... I don't know what to say to that.
Haha, yes I know. I was just kidding.
Cold-blooded with a never ending love for crickets.
The son is 10 and the father is 40. 20 years later, the son will be 30 and the Father will be 60! Right? :D
The absence of emotion. As in; no love, no compassion, no sympathy, not even sadness. You just do things because you feel like it.
I'm only agreeing to this post because I don't think a professional should lip sync to another person's voice.
If they pre-recorded their own voice, just in case their voice was cracking and they couldn't cancel the show, I think it's okay. Considering it's their own voice, and not someone else's.
EDIT: After reading the explanation, I feel dumb. Sorry. Lip singing and lip syncing are hard to tell the difference from because I'm an idiot.
I think that a natural voice is far better than a digitally enhanced one. I think that it is normal for minor adjustments to be made, but to make it sound completely different is not right in my opinion. It takes away the unique feel of one's voice.
It's culture. Where I come from, we don't have Sweet 16s. We have Quinceañera, which is on the 15th birthday. It's to show when a person becomes a man/woman. For example, Bar Mitzvahs are celebrated on the 13th birthday (I think), and so on.
I don't know the history behind the Sweet 16 or Golden Birthday, but it's the way it is. Can't really change it since it does no harm and is just a birthday, after all.
Interdependence is also pretty great.
I actually noticed a stink bug on the shower curtain right before the lights when out, and I started screaming because of the darkness and because of the fact I'm terrified of bugs, so I thought it would fly in my hair or something...
And there was thunder and lightning, too... It didn't help.
It is easy. It's just drama jacks it all up.
I celebrate Christmas for two reasons.
A; I like presents.
B; I like decorating.
I don't believe in God, so what's the problem? I celebrate Halloween, and Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, and Three Kings Day, and a number of other things. Why? Because culture and religion is fun to learn about, even if I'm an atheist or don't belong to that specific culture.
To me; the moral lesson behind Christmas is to give, and to accept. It's a time to appreciate family and friends. Which, by the way, doesn't stray from the religious viewpoint too much. At least in my opinion.
It's like celebrating Black Pride without being black, and LGBT Pride without being LGBT.
Discrimination is never okay. If a person becomes a police man and has a gang tattoo on their face, that is most likely in the past and barely has any relation to the job whatsoever. The thought you just said that is sickening. Body art or any form of changing your body for that matter has literally nothing to do with someone's job, it's the skills. People don't hire anyone with body art or piercings literally because of 'image'. They don't want to scare off people who think an employee with a mermaid tattoo stretching across their back is a criminal. Seriously...
As much as I enjoy curtsies, I usually just bow instead. No one really does that in America, even less in Puerto Rico (Where I come from) due to a common familiarity given to even strangers. Maybe it's just a habit I picked up from watching Japanese women on Tv or something... I just like being polite... sometimes...
That is one awesome Alien... It is just impressive.
If what you posted is true, I have two things to say.
1) It could be they do not have bad intentions for what they are doing. I don't know if you've noticed, but the smarter a person is, the crazier they become. Like Van Gogh. So it's possible they're just protecting humanity... or something.
2) I forgot. But I know I had a counter-argument to it, so I'll just go on. Humanity doesn't really need any leaps in science. People are finding things already, discovering amazing possibilities, theories, etc. and also creating an evolution already surpassing the normal standards. We're doing just fine. I don't think we need to rely on help from space. Though, it could be really useful for a lot of things. Now I remember what I was going to say... ugh. Never mind, figure it out yourself.
