PSA: Dealing with Trolls

The troll is here for one reason and one reason only, to be a troll and try to get you

to entertain him by arguing about something. If the troll can make you angry, even

better for him. The best way to deal with a troll is to simply:

1) Call him a troll
2) Blow up his argument quickly and decisively
3) Don't post on the topic again

Any post from Muda should drop of the first page within one day, just quit arguing with him.

You would have the same success arguing with a goal post. (Which was bought with taxpayer dollars btw)
 

I don't think you see what I do. This is entertainment for me. Angry...me....about some nameless, faceless, dude/dudette on the internet....nah.

Okay...I'll bite.

I have an idea..it's just an idea.  If you strongly feel this way, don't post in the Indiana HS football forum.  Your not trying to educate, your trying to bait.  Just like that "Let's run up the score" thread you used to run.  So when you leave, don't go to the Soccer forum: (they lead the nation in concussions), Basketball, (Because players get concussions falling on the floor), baseball or softball (hit in the head or chest to cause death), tennis (ever take a serve to the noggin.), Lacross (Those sticks are weapons, I tell ya),  Hockey (The violence is horrifying), Golf(Lightning is dangerous), Track(Strokes and heart issues), Archery(they use these to hunt defenseless deer, OMG, the horror), Wrestling (violence 2.0).   

So if "subsidizing" these things shouldn't be up the tax payers, then lets look at the education paths of things thing shall we.

AG (Why teach it, who needs farmers anyway, they can learn that from the other people that own farms...and OMG, you could loose a limb in an auger.)
Music (Ever listen the music kids listen to today, it makes my ears bleed, so it injures me...so it must go.  If Justin Bieber is considered music, the kids are learning nothing)
Science (there are some that think this is evil,  OMG SCIENCE, and Batman uses science so it must be fake, ban it.)
Math (Math is hard, x always equals 3.)
English(After trying to listen to kids talk today, they be learning, nuffin)
History (no one pays attention to it anyway, so it is just repeated)
Shop Class (Someone will drill their eye out..I just know it.)
Foreign Language courses(Okay, we do need this)
 

So I think Frisbee Golf is okay, WAIT, crap, that is in a public park and the public funds pay for that, so it must go, along with see saws, swings and play sets.  Also, those pesky ball diamonds on public land must go.  Picnic areas,  I hate picnics and family reunions that are held in those area's so why should I have to pay for that.  Gone.  

So, just leave me alone with my XBOX and soda.

 

Disclaimer (this post is LACED with sarcasm. )  (Disclaimer 2, I learned this sarcasm from one of my  coaches when I was a kid playing football. If I were not allowed to play said sport, I would have never learned about the intricacies of sarcasm and wouldn't have been able to make this post.  So see I got nothing good out of playing football.)

Thank you for your support.  I find it very sarcastic that you apparently describe core educational concepts like Math, Science, and English as extracurricular activities.  Is that how they are treated in Fountain County?

That's what makes this country great- If Texans want to spend millions on a high school stadium, they're free to do it. And folks in Indiana don't have to like it.....

What about the band and choir? Should we do away with those as well? I mean we spend tax dollars to build the auditorium where they perform. We have to build purpose built rooms for them to practice. Does basketball, wrestling, volleyball get a pass because we have to have a gym for PE? Or should we do away will all of it. Our community also uses the pool, can we keep that?

The difference between you and I are I see extracurriculars as part of the education process, I have no idea what you see, given your stance on football, I'm not sure why you're even here.  

If extracurricular activities were a regular part of the education process, they wouldn't be called extracurricular activities.

I said I see them as part of the process, I never said they were Readin, Ritin, or Rithmatic.

Not all Texans:  It’s Time To Stop Spending Tens of Millions of Dollars On High School Football Stadiums: https://www.texasmonthly.com/the-daily-post/mckinney-stop-tens-millions-dollars-high-school-football-stadiums/

Quote

It’s no revelation to say that in this state of ours, football is the second most cherished religion we’ve got—right after Christianity and just before complaining about the heat. But the trend of high school football stadiums that cost tens of millions of dollars has got to stop. All high school football stadiums need are bleachers, grass, lights, and a concession stand that sells Frito Pie.

....

Placing athletics over academics and the arts is a tale as old as time. Sports—well, male-dominated athletics, particularly football and basketball—have more eyes and glory involved than pretty much every other high school institution outside of prom, and even then there’s room for debate. But the fact of the matter is that high school football, though we tend to spend exuberant amounts of money on it, doesn’t yield great returns. In 2011, the Dallas Morning News’ sports section conducted an investigation of Dallas-area football teams and their profitability, and only three districts had a net profit. McKinney’s had a net loss of $208,889.35.

....

It’s money wasted on cosmetic pomp and circumstance that could’ve gone to improving educational resources. Imagine the possibilities and the scholars these schools could attract if this money was used as a financial incentive for teachers. Maybe, in some crazy alternate universe,  high-performing educators could have salaries that rival high school football coaches.  

Must be some crazy Texas liberal thinking there................

See, Trey Parker and Matt Stone speak the truth. And South Park Colorado is just the start.  And they have a SodaSopa and a ShiPaTown AND a Whole Foods.

DUDE...we Need Frito Pie here...OMG

And not the walking Taco in the bag one..the image on the top.  Oh heck yes!!!

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frito_pie

IMHO the ultimate high school football field, and all a school should need, is Fleur-De-Lis field in Greenfield, Illinois:

I don't know if they serve Frito Pie though.
