"I think the satellite could potentially be very dangerous. Hopefully, the satellite does not have good video quality, but we do not know much about North Korea's capabilities and plans. I think we would be well within our rights to do something…"
"Comments about the border and illegal immigration are completely irrelevant and this post is very misleading. There is zero evidence that Garcia was an immigrant, let alone an illegal immigrant. He was a US citizen and served in the military. This…"
"I don't mind the K-12 system, but I think school needs to start later so that students can get more sleep. Although school goes to 12th grade, you can drop out at 16 in Iowa and there are other ways of getting a high-school equivalent diploma. I…"
"I am not in any sports so I'm not sure which of the two feels better to play on, but I think I would prefer natural grass based on what you have said. If natural grass can prevent injuries, then I think it is worth the maintenance and care. Turf…"
"I think photoshop is a staple for many art forms. I have seen how photographers use Photoshop to aid their photos and it is really interesting and takes a lot of expertise. However, I think it is extremely dangerous when a person's appearance is…"
"I think a mixture of semester tests and semester projects is beneficial. I think at our schools, teachers don't weigh them as heavily and only make them worth around 15% of our grade. In my experience, my semester tests have not been the hardest…"
"I don't know if single-use plastic needs to be banned, but we can reduce our usage of them at the very least. It's really illogical why we have taken a material that lasts almost forever and decided to throw it away after using it for minutes. The…"
"I never use pennies. Most people rarely use cash, so the amount of people that use pennies is even lower. Raising costs could be stressful initially, but I think after a while it would settle down and people would get used to prices being to the…"
"I agree that the specific information is not necessarily useful for everyone, but the skills that being in a school environment teaches you are very important. Math is a very logical subject and requires problem-solving. Even if you do not remember…"
"The Watergate scandal has definitely ruined how history remembers him. Most young people do not know much about Nixon, except Watergate and knowing that Watergate was very bad. I agree though, and even if Watergate had not happened I would still…"
"I think the Watergate scandal should be taught more in schools. It's so recent in history, and yet many young people now do not know what actually transpired. There are plenty of adults who lived through Watergate that are still alive, so it's…"
"I think there are very valid reasons to take a gap year. If you aren't completely sure of what you want to do post-high school, a gap year can help you figure it out before you agree to pay 30k a year on school. I know someone who considered doing a…"
Whenever Richard Nixon is mentioned, most people will immediately think of the Watergate scandal. In 1972, the Democratic National Committee's headquarters was broken into. As the break-in was investigated, it became clear that Nixon was involved.…
"I would rather it be light out all of the time. The sun would definitely get annoying, especially at night, but the dark 24/7 would get depressing. I find it very difficult to stay productive when it gets dark, and I get a lot less motivated in the…"
"I definitely struggle with productivity some times. I find it easier to work when I'm in a good mood and if I'm comfortable. I often procrastinate my work till last minute and then use the stress of the approaching deadline to motivate me, although…"
"I think everyone has stressed over high school at least once. For me especially, I can only imagine that stress ending when school gets out, or once I finish a big test. I think being able to feel some peace in the moment is very beneficial for…"
"I am not completely sure if this is ethical, but it would be an incredible achievement nevertheless. I think the technology may better be used to revive dwindling species rather than bring back already extinct animals. I've heard that the woolly…"
"I have tried out MyAI, and it honestly isn't very impressive. It forgets your conversation very quickly and has problems understanding slang. ChatGPT seemed a lot more advanced when I used it, and I think MyAI must be a very filtered-down version.…"
"I think cloning organs could be very helpful. There are insanely long wait lists for organ transplants. Many people in need of an organ transplant never receive one due to an organ shortage. Organ cloning could fix this, and maybe stop illegal organ…"
"Childhood trauma can have very unfortunate, lasting effects. If you are close to a person, it's good to heed any details they share with you of their trauma and be sensitive. Traumatized individuals can benefit from long-term therapy that can help…"
"I have a goal-gpa that I want to hit each quarter. Even though I procrastinate sometimes, knowing what mistakes will keep me from hitting my goal keeps me from completely not turning in assignments. This isn't the best technique, because it…"
"I do not think I have a strong opinion on how teachers should dress. I have never been offended by a teacher's attire before. I wouldn't say every teacher dresses super strictly, and I don't think it disrupts the teaching whatsoever. I've seen…"
"I think sexism is still a very prevalent social factor in today's life. While sexism is not as overt as it was in the past, there are so many unconscious biases that people have. Many acts of misogyny are not blatant enough for people to pinpoint,…"
"Seatbelts are a law for a very good reason. If you are in a collision, not wearing a seatbelt could almost certainly ensure your death if you are to fly out of your windshield. I have heard stories about people who don't wear seatbelts crushing…"
"I think having siblings teaches children social skills and how to handle conflict throughout life. I have two siblings, so I'm not sure what it is like to be an only child, but I think it could probably get very lonely. Sibling relationships are…"
"I think foreign language should be taught to children before high school. In nearly every country that isn't English-speaking, children learn multiple languages. I think we are withholding very valuable skills from the youth by not pushing…"
"I'm not going to campaign for the lowering of the drinking age, but I do think 18 just makes more sense. Most countries have it set to 18 or lower. If you can serve in the military it would make sense that you should be able to drink. Like I said,…"
"I think Netflix is absolutely becoming less and less appealing in comparison to its competitors. Netflix has a tendency to force seasons out of shows until they become ruined, and also canceling really good shows after only 1 season. Netflix is only…"
"Y is a vowel if it makes a vowel sound. Y in the word yellow would not be a vowel. Y in the word cloudy would be a vowel since it makes an ee-sound. I do not think hmm, shh, or psst are words. They're just vocal gestures we make without explicit…"
"I personally love going to malls. Even if there is more variety online, I enjoy shopping in person so much more. Malls are fun to walk through and you can go from store to store while you decide what to buy rather than drive to a bunch of different…"
"I think there are some concerns a person could have about the security of the app. However, the data that TikTok holds is no different than any other social media platform. Your search engines sell your data to every social media site. Recently,…"
"I think it can be hard to organize a single file line in an emergency, but it helps for many different reasons. Firstly, teachers need to make sure they know where each of their students is. Having a plan could also minimize the panic students and…"
"Imagine you find out you make $1 less than all your coworkers. Obviously, this is unfair so you ask your manager to raise your pay the extra dollar. If the manager increased everyone's pay by $1 then there would still be inequality. It would also…"
"The purpose of having a <insert group>'s month/day is to highlight a group that is underrepresented. There isn't a point in having a men's day when they have had the spotlight for almost all of human history. A women's day is necessary until there…"
"I don't think we should make energy drinks illegal for a certain age, but maybe if you make it illegal for people under 13 to buy them it would be beneficial. A kid could occasionally have an energy drink but only if their parent bought it for them…"
"Hour-long classes are somewhat exhausting, but not having the same classes every day was less stressful. I can see the merit in both. However, I think we should still fit WIN in our schedule somehow. I know many schools have A, B, C, D, or E days so…"
"I am very exhausted and frustrated with how cheap clothing is made nowadays. I feel like more and more of my clothes are of terrible quality, making me not want to wear them after a few months. In the past, people used their clothes for years and…"
"I don't think wind energy could feasibly be our one source of energy, but I don't think any politician is trying to push only wind energy. The potential for animals to fly into turbines is kind-of null when compared to the impact fossil fuels have…"
"There doesn't seem to be a purpose for these experiments. If there was a benefit to a risky experiment then you could justify it slightly, but I can't see the merit in a two headed animal. The science behind it is absolutely not advanced enough to…"
"I took four years of Spanish and am not currently learning any foreign languages. I plan on learning American Sign Language (ASL) next year in college. Most languages I'm interested in are for specific reasons. I learned Spanish to know a bit more…"
"Separation of church and state makes it so public schools cannot take a stance on/fund religion. Because it is the taxpayers' money, having a class for one religion would be a misuse. An optional religion class seems more reasonable, but a class…"
"I don't think standardized tests are very beneficial. A student's test-taking abilities do not necessarily indicate their intelligence or knowledge of a subject. A lot of smart students struggle with taking tests and may be misjudged on their…"
"I agree that teenagers should be allowed to use birth control. I also believe that birth control education is a must for young people. There is a variety of reasons to use birth control. The alternative would be painful-periods or child-pregnancy. I…"
"I think vaping is a different kind of beast than cigarettes. We don't know the long-term effects of vaping, which potentially makes them more dangerous. More teenagers vape than smoke cigarettes, which is also a reason they can be more harmful. It's…"
"As I said before, livestock requires more land than crops do. Switching land from livestock to crops would conserve land. Like I stated, I'm not vegan so I don't think that's a horrible thing. But, it is a fact. You can think something is apparent,…"
"I like daylight savings time. I think it's somewhat annoying to have to adjust clocks and lose an hour of sleep, so I think it should be year-round. Then, we wouldn't have to adjust to changing it twice a year. I think it could help with seasonal…"
"I don't think it's stupid to be vegan; that wording is unnecessarily combative. I am not vegan, but everyone who is vegan has their own reasons for it. It's nobody's business to judge what a person eats. I couldn't find anything to corroborate your…"
"I don't really think sophomores or freshmen should be able to leave, nor is there a pressing need for them to leave. Many sophomores and freshmen don't have licenses anyways, so it would only apply to select students. It's almost a fact that not…"
"I think most people would agree that school lunch is not good to taste or very healthy. It probably has to do with funding and time. Well-prepared meals would be amazing, but then you would have to pay people more for that work. School employees…"
"It's deplorable for a person to be in a scenario where they have no choice but to steal for something as important as their health. I have pity on people in those scenarios, and less so for a company making billions of dollars. I think making…"
