I don't see how this is bullying, but then the definitions of bullying I've seen on this forum are so incredibly liberal, that I'm sure this is to some people.

That said, a teacher spending class time to b!tch about their salary is incredibly unprofessional. Really, if someone hired me to teach a week-long class (something that has happened before), and I spent the first day complaining about my pay or pushing some unrelated political agenda, people would have a right to be pissed.

I think that's a little excessive, but in general I favor physical punishment when necessary. How exactly do you deal with children--who are as$holes, nearly all of them--without physical intervention?

[QUOTE="DroidPhysX"]

Beating children means they will be damaged as adults.

Im alright.

and pretty much everyone else who was born since the beginning of time and up to the early 1990s turned out alright.

I know, right? Shouldn't we have destroyed the planet a long, long time ago, all growing up batsh!t crazy from spankings?

The Final Frontier might be a better film than Star Trek 2009. It's better to have ideas in your film, and bungle them, rather than set out to have no ideas from the start.

The notion of Hell being Satan's domain is a popular idea, and I'm not sure if it's actually supported in Christian doctrine. I think it's more like: Satan is being tortured in Hell like everyone else.

This thread would have benefitted from a poll.

I think everything should have racial quotas. Everything.

Lonelynight

number of wives/gfs?

Yes, everything. People should have to apply for a license to go out with somebody. If you haven't nailed any black girls in a while, better get ready to.

[QUOTE="Smokescreened84"]The Abrams Star 'Trek' Wars movie, it's vile. It lacks everything that makes Star Trek so good in the first place, it's little more than a pathetic joke designed for the impatient by a hack. Yet so many love it. It goes to prove that true Star Trek is too complex for people to grasp, so the only way they notice anything is if it comes with lens flare, a lack of story and constant, boring action.bowserjr123

I see where you're coming from, it is pretty much Star Trek TOS on steroids lol. I tend to ignore the fact that it is based on the Star Trek universe and that makes it a better movie for me. I do wish that they made the movie like the original series though instead of trying to make it more mainstream, something like the Wrath of Khan would be excellent.

Oh, this one too.

Star Trek 2009 is the dumbed down action version of Star Trek. It's not a Star Trek film. It's an action film where someone went and grabbed all the popular Star Trek references, made them banally present on screen, and threw that in a movie. Also, the script was dumb as hell. The bad guy (can't remember his name) can join Shinzon in the roll of Star Trek villians with no discernable motivation. And to quote Plinkett, I don't care if it was explained in some f*cking novel or comic book; what matters is the movie! Michael Bay could have made this film, and I don't think it would have come out much different.

I think a good way to think about films like this is, if you took away the Star Trek stuff, would it still be a good film? Wrath of Khan would still be a good film without the familiar Star Trek setting and characters. So is Undiscovered Country. The Star Wars prequels are examples of films that, divorced from their pre-existing elements and huge budgets, would be completely unmemorable. So is Star Trek 2009.

JJ Abrams is the Stella Artois of directors: Not completely mass market and sh!tty, but completely unremarkable.
