The teacher said "The team will win if they work together."

Diagram that and stfu, Hal.

That's a mighty convenient correction on your part, chump.

Your instructor may be inadequate.

But you sure demonstrate some stones, ragging on how your teacher "sucks", when your original post supposedly demonstrating her incompetence is itself defective.

That is the credited response.

You're a total dickhead, dude.  If you're going to come on here and practically name your instructor and say she is awful, then you damn well better have your facts straight.

You can't handle the pressure of the real test. 

That's clearly TestMaster's fault.

She's just a cartoon, so no one can get hurt.

I do not understand the sympathy for Anthony Ciolli, never-hired associate and administrator of a misogynist, racist and otherwise hateful board. 

Seriously though, he knew the risks, acted like an idiot (by not moderating the board where it should have been moderated and using his REAL NAME) and now he's reaping the consequences.  I mean, I'm sympathetic to the fact that after three years of law school he won't have a job, but c'mon, he deserved it.

Three things. First I don't feel bad for him. Second, the reason I find it ridiculous has already beens stated. We've established that GTO and xoxo have been associated IRL for a long time in advance. A quick look at xoxo would've let the hiring committee know what they were getting into. According to GTO, stuff came up in interviews. Obviously he still got a SA job.

Third, characterizing xoxo as "a misogynist, racist and otherwise hateful board" is a little knee-jerk in my opinion. Like I stated earlier, this is what happens when the stnadards of humor is a combination of overt lewdity, profanity, and offensiveness. See again: South Park. Is it disgusting, yeah, but then don't laugh at Dave Chapelle, MADTV, or anything else that uses racism, miogyny, and hate as fodder for humor.

South Park / MadTV / whatever doesn't host slander about non-public figures.

The Law Blog has learned that law firm Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge rescinded its job offer to Anthony Ciolli, the 3L at Penn Law who resigned as “Chief Education Director” of AutoAdmit last month. His resigned in the wake of a WaPo exposé on how the site in part served as a platform for attacks and defamatory remarks about female law students, among others.

Is that the same thing as "magic underwear"?

No, there's nothing magic about them.

see edit, i realized that came off as insensitive ... wasn't trying to be, just that i've heard that term (magic underwear), and probably in a perjorative sense, so is this the same thing people talk about when they talk about magic underwear.

eh.... i'll just drop it

I've only done it once and they weren't in there at the time.

And everything we do has a purpose.   ;)

First weekend: Hello everyone!  Here are your expectations.  Here is how you have to set up your lockers.  You must have a lock drill weekend.  You must lock up all of your personal belongings.  Here is how you make your bed.  You must follow this standard at all times.

Second weekend:  Another instructor and myself go into barracks and realized that plenty of beds weren't made up the right way.  Plenty of stuff wasn't locked up.  Or they'd put the lock on, but not actually lock it.  Proceed to tear apart anything that isn't made up the right way, properly locked, etc.

Candidates must now spend what little free time they had cleaning up their barracks.

Lesson learned:  Do things right the first time plus the importance of securing their items.  Do you get a second chance in combat?  What happens if you have a folder of classified documents (or even your address book of your friends and family in the states) and leave it unsecured and a terrorist gets it?

I would last about 3 seconds in the military.

Before I answer, let me first say that I hate my laptop. It's decided it's okay to just randomly shut itself off without warning. Now, on to pure speculation.

My bet is it has to do with temple garments. They're kinda like a priests robes only their worn under regular clothes instead of over them. We wear them at all times, and they're supposed to be respected - not tossed about like you would with the rest of the clothing in the locker. It would probably be too hard to enforce a rule that "you can toss everything in their locker around unless they look like underclothes," so they just tell you not to mess with any of their clothing.

But that's just a guess!

Is that the same thing as "magic underwear"? 

edit: i'm not saying this to be offensive.  i've just heard about magic underwear, and i figured this sounds like the more legit way to describe it...

We accommodate as much as possible.  Usually it's more in terms of allowing time for people to go to the religious service of their choosing, whether it's Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, or whenever, and making dietary considerations. 

The catch is that it's not supposed to interfere with training.  So it we're at an all day firing range on a Friday, my Muslim soldier won't get to go to services.  However, if it's a standard work day, he'll get an extended lunch to go then. 

Regarding the clothing, some people were talking about it today and saying that if it says "US Army", it's Army property and we can do what we want.  If you have a religious item - clothing, book, necklace - that you don't want messed with, it's supposed to be locked up in a personal drawer that's off limits to all instructors.

Does anyone ever freak the hell out when you start throwing their *&^% around?  This seems somewhat dangerous?
