    I dunno Passer I think it's a not unreasonable sentiment. Girls are typically weaker and smaller than men, from a purely physical perspective. If I know my baby girl's spending a lot of time outdoors in a big city, I think I'd feel a little bit of extra assurance knowing that the person she's accompanied by can maybe secure her a little better than she could herself.

    If he was really all that concerned with her, rather than gender roles, he'd have had her learn self-defense. :?

    Unfair, perhaps, in this situation (given that I've never met this man), but I have had female friends who got into bad situations because their parents expected a big strong man to be there to defend them and so taught them nothing about survival beyond 'get a job / marry a financially stable guy'.

    Honk - Well if you could teach me, rather than showing off... :P

    He has taught her some self-defense. I dunno, I don't really want to get into an argument about gender bias (and I'm sure there is at least a little in this situation), but I think I can comfortably say I could take just about any girl in America in a fight, and I'm not a professionally trained fighter.

    I'm not trying to say that he hasn't (thus my commenting on how unfair it was towards him, I wasn't clear enough on that) nor am I trying to start an argument. Just saying that the idea that because women are physically weaker (in most cases) than men then they shouldn't be taught to defend themselves anyway is really annoying and unfair, which seems like something you agree with.

    I can only support this idea if there is forced euthanasia for the patients that reject the reeducation.

    Because people complain when we say ‘America’.

    Edit: Also because we didn’t come up with the name 1000+ years ago based on tribal names.

    Are you sure the send/receive is Mb and not MB? A 24 Mb connection = about a 3 MB connection, so it could be conceivable with network congestion that you'd only be getting .48 MB and .34 MB.

    Yup, it was Mb, and I can definitely feel how it's much slower than it's ever been. I'll call my ISP tomorrow if it continues, as I haven't been able to fix it from my side.

    No no you see what we do is throw them in the camp, police the perimeter but otherwise enforce no rules. The ones who survive can be considered "re-educated" because if you come out of that enactment of Lord of the Flies still believing in libertarianism then there's no helping you.

    FCC to propose 'Net neutrality' rules
    The head of the FCC plans to propose new rules that would prohibit Internet service providers from interfering with the free flow of information and certain applications over their networks, an official at the agency said Saturday.

    And how do you feel about Canada? We just call ourselves "Canada", not the "Constitutional-Monarchic Federation of the Dominion of Canada". Sometimes not including your form of government in your nation's name is more convenient.

    EDIT:
    Actually, make that the "Constitutional-Monarchic Democratic-Westminster-Parliamentary Confederation of the Dominion of Canada".
