    Feel bad about himself? No again. Remove his blinders? Yes.. But that doesn't happen until one gets smacked in the head, and there isn't anyone to bail them out. His cocky, condescending attitude is a bit misplaced for someone who does nothing on his own, except that which is legally required of him until he's 18 - go to school.

    Robert is, in a sense luckier than most of us at that age. Okay when I went to school we were handed out quills and inkwells but no matter. He is an intelligent young bloke. He has here - and no doubt elsewhere - a resource where he can test his intellect against others but more than that he can also test his own social maturity. The two obviously don't go together.

    And given the apparent tendency of high school learning theory to protect self-esteem (not sure if that comes into learning theory, me, I'm a constructivist but then I teach adults) Robert might find the two-fisted robust nature of USMB a good learning resource.

    But there's no need to kick his arse too hard. :lol:

    Red Sox Nation? I admire loyalty for a sporting club's fans. It shows character and sometimes, oh sometimes you need to call on that character.

    it shows character and a firm belief in the many long term benefits of self-flagellation.

    But think of the scar tissue - it's, well, it's character-building :lol:

    But damnit, if it's your team then it's your team. I hate crossover bastards.

    i can see why no one who thinks palin is guilty actually answered, because there is not evidence to support a finding that she abused her powers :lol:

    Nine runs last night *holds head down*

    Josh Beckett has seemed to lost his stuff this year. Upside is it's only 1-1 and we got Lester on the mound for us in Game 3.

    But in her story, the girl wasn't bitter before and she was a Democrat.

    Now she is bitter and she is a Republican.
