Mark Elliott replied to Lynn Jones's discussion What is a manly job for 15 year olds
"First of all, it is manly to work.  It is not manly to not work.  There is honor in work.  There is dishonor in laziness.  The seemingly lowest employee of a McDonald's cleaning toilets stands a mile above the slickest…"

Steve Dallas replied to Vytautas's discussion What Do We Learn From History?
"Per your last paragraph. No, misreading does not make one smart. I am saying that you are attempting to make an intelligent argument by doing the very same thing. You are trying to lump everyone into a tidy entity in order to make an over-arching…"
