And when I say ALL, it really means every fucking thing :P
All spells and abilities obviously, but also flavor items and transform items in bags, but it doesnt stop there, it also resets all profession CDs, even your Farm is reset (all plants insta grow) even dailys reset, EVERY time you reach the phase...
I think blizzard overlooked something :P


LOL!

Enyart's program also has all of the above (the radio program, the podcasts, the YouTube videos). But it lacks the backing of a foundation—and the science part. His "Real Science Friday" website (Tagline: "Don't Be Fooled by NPR's parody titled Science Friday ;)") contains a variety of standard creationist material, much of it attacking evolution, but some of it arguing for a Universe that's only a few thousand years old as well.

Having listened to one "Real Science Friday" podcast about how caterpillars destroy atheism (don't ask), I came away feeling like I lost a few IQ points in the process.

Too bad its not something you can actually take advantage of - I mean, thats a pretty obvious unintended behaviour (now lets see if Vodka doesn't take advantage of it somehow :-P (it was vodka that got a suspension for LFR abuse, wasn't it?))

You cant really use it as an advantage on the boss, so it doesnt really matter.
But some people are going doing their profession stuff after a wipe to get gold, Id say its an exploit, I just hope we wont have key members banned before the boss dies (even tho they deserve it imo)

Dont think Vodka got banned for LFR, we did and Paragon did, but I think most US guilds managed to remain unbanned (except exodus iirc)

I just love ignorance that I can disprove.

Been talking with a shaman in the guild about the state of prot paladins now a days. He's dead set that they are the weakest tank now and that is the reason the top guilds do not use them. I show him the top three guilds do have a prot paladin in their raid group, and he counters with that they're not in the core. I simply state that's a false statement and tell him that the top three (four if I'm not mistaken) have a prot paladin in their line up and he states he'll go talk to Rigg about BL's core tanks. So with wowprogress's new feature to see how many pulls a guild does on a boss, I pull that up and show him that the prot paladins have just as many pulls as any other raid member on the boss. He really doesn't talk after that.

Later on, myself and the RL/Gm are talking about drops and I state I'm waiting for the frost DK to get the dps pieces so I gather them up for tanking. Same shaman pops off that the only good thing about being in a casual guild is that tanks can do things that really don't work in a hardmode guild environment. I ask what he means, and he goes on about how tanks can not worry about 'tank' stats and still get away with it. So I link him Theck's blog post, let him read it, then tell him to go look at the top guilds' tanks and see how different their gearing strategy is.

He then states that he doesn't have a lvl 90 paladin and doesn't really know much about them...

...

Come to find out, he's the BM hunter in my raid group.



I really don't know what to think about people who just base their claims off of low level dungeons and past expacs.

Also, ask him if haste is the best BM stat which is the result of both FD and SimC (erroneously, based on how they work) ;) - can always link him to my guides (oh wait, no links to my guides here - wowhead.com/Guide=1213 (I think, will check -- Edit: yes 1213) - or EJ BM thread.

Edit2: oh, I do have links in my sig.

YEP, CSCOPE is a piece of shit, I know that as I do have the requirements to be a teacher in texas, just decided it wasn't worth it and stuck in the IT Dept instead.

The kind of teachers some school have don't help either -- I get math teachers crying that they cannot teach algebra if their laptop or ceiling overhead projector is not working...

yes they do... they're just too lazy to use them... *facedesk*

I have to bite my tongue every time a teacher tells me they cannot teach without either a laptop or a projector...

Are we talking younger teachers or ones that have been around awhile?

Obviously, there is no excuse for either, but I can kind of understand it from a newer teacher, as they probably don't realize a whiteboard is used for more than just the background to their projector.

It's not just the new teachers, but some teachers that have 10 years at least in the district...

And this happens in all grades and subjects -- Kindergarten, Elementary, Middle and High School.

ANd it's not only in the schools.
We got robbed last week, and a coach came to me all flustered "but I've got a meeting with a client, and the projector's stolen! What do I do?"
"Print paper copies? Printer's not stolen AFAIK."

Seriously. In business school, our English teacher had printed and placed over her desk:

"If you come here with a problem,
And haven't at least 3 potential solutions for it,
You're part of the problem."

Yeah, like I said, I have to bite my tongue, but I've been very close to telling these teachers off, specially because my mom was a teacher for 30 years and not once depended on a laptop or a projector to teach algebra and trigonometry in middle school -- heck, she would not even let kids use calculators to do trigonometry, she would have them use the trigonometric tables, down to the minutes and seconds.

when i was first learning them in college, we were taught them using the tables for a week or so, just to appreciate our calculators more

What I see there, especially from the teachers noteS/ questions, is a teaching about being sceptical of what the media and/or government simply states, and looking at history a bit more objectively.

To be absolutely objective, the Boston Tea Party was an acto of terrorism under manyy of teh definitions used today. It was an act aimed at a government via teh citizens, and it was an act aimed at causing fear and/or of a rebellious nature.

A modern example thats easily skewed is the Israel/Palestine question - are Hamas terrorist or freedom fighters? it can be either, dependant on the view and justifications used. Is Israel a "rogue nation" that uses state terrorism against the palestinians, or a justified defender - well again it can be either depending on what view point you take.

This is what I see this being supposed to teach - now how the specific teacher / school teaches it is a nother matter entirely.

All valid points, and willing to give it the benefit of the doubt if this came from a student performance top 10 state, but this is texas we are talking about, which is constantly at the bottom of the pile, normally just better than alabama and west viginia.
