I brought this up in the context of another thread. I believe I said how surprised I was to see it. And someone else said yes, but really, it's rather hollow given that no meaningful action is taken by the school to attempt to bring such principles to real life (or the outside community). Again, I'm...

I'm a bit unfamiliar with the locations of the schools. Does that mean the teachers were living on school property?

I grew up living in one of the School's (Big S stands for SES) properties but we paid rent and my parents didn't work for the school or anything.

I had never heard of a "needs based" system. So that means that the teachers are paid based on what the school "feels" that they 'need" in terms of salary and benefits?

Wow - that was really interesting to read. It certainly just furthers my assurance that my understanding of how things are run there are correct.

Oh, I didn't make myself clear. I don't have any issues going alone. When I lived in NYC, I went dancing almost every week and while I knew many people at the club, I often went alone and back. I do like going alone for many of the reasons you listed although with my friends and drinking, it would b...

You can picture me sitting on the couch watching nature films with a big ball of blue yarn beside me and a rectangle knit so far. I also knit in the car and while waiting for anything. I have until the end of the World Cup to finish the items, so I don't have to stay up all night or anything. I just...

Wow Mike, I never thought of you being like that. I guess something about being the authority figure makes people assume that the person is like a parent. Silly me! I haven't been posting that much for myself because I think that I've discussed most of what I needed to do. I'm feeling very self-conf...

I'm in ADG. My version of the plan includes cupcakes, if anyone's interested...

In seriousness, I haven't heard of such a plan either.

Shout didn't leave. He's been temporarily banned.

I didn't say we shouldn't discuss religion. I said those involved should take that discussion to another thread rather than taking over this one with a separate discussion.

This is total speculation but Germany has a very low tolerance for what it considers cults. Their treatment of $cientology is pretty severe. Just a thought...
