Plans for the weekend?

What did you think of the Golden Globe winners and Oscar noms?

Is there some big event happening in your life in 2014? Any major plans you're looking foward to?

What unusual stuff is going on at work right now?

<<Dont you remember school?>>

Yes, that's why I'm able to easily understand simple math and logic in the example I gave you where clearly instruction time is reduced from the 42 minutes by kids being late to class.  

<<I did answer, the desks are big enough for both and it must not be a problem since they allow it.>>

That wasn't the only question, lol.

<<<I never said that I couldn't eat with others around, don't make up things.

<<So if you can, why couldn't someone else?>>

Again, I never said they couldn't, stick to what has actually been said.

So why couldnt a student?>>

I never said students couldn't eat with others either, mine do so every day, during lunch period.  Where are you getting this difficulty eating with others?  Is this a personal issue or something?

<<It is a open area, just like my desk. I go home for lunch because I like the break any enjoy a quiet time at home by myself.>

Unless you are claiming the high school classrooms have cubicles, no i'ts not the same, it's quite different acutally because you know..cubicles and such.  If you benefit from having a lunch break, why wouldn't it make sense for kids to have that benefit as well?

<<Nope not laptops. They cant require all kids to buy laptops.>>

Who said anything about requiring all kids to buy laptops?  Your school doesn't have computers for classes to use in the classroom for projects?  Do they have any type of computer?

<<Then dont claim that kids are skipping a meal.>>

It's simple logic, if kids don't have a lunch period, then logic would follow that some kids are skipping meals and since you don't know all the kids, you can't say that they don't, now can you?

<<Not when it is all around the school.>>

No, it still takes time...simple logic, really.

<<And kids could easily have a lunch period and not eat.>>

Of course, which is why it's silly to for the school to support unhealthy eating habits while requiring kids to have pe for "healthy reasons", total contradiction and more wonky health ideas.

So you remember that classes usually don't start exactly when the bell rings.

<<I did answer, the desks are big enough for both and it must not be a problem since they allow it.>>

That wasn't the only question, lol.

Yep the question was how big are the desks that you can fit a lunch "tray" on it WITH your school work.

<<<I never said that I couldn't eat with others around, don't make up things.

<<So if you can, why couldn't someone else?>>

Again, I never said they couldn't, stick to what has actually been said.

So what is the problem? Why do you think they would have a problem with it?

So why couldnt a student?>>

I never said students couldn't eat with others either, mine do so every day, during lunch period.  Where are you getting this difficulty eating with others?  Is this a personal issue or something?

So why would they have a difficulty eating in class with other students as your ds does during lunch period? 

<<It is a open area, just like my desk. I go home for lunch because I like the break any enjoy a quiet time at home by myself.>

Unless you are claiming the high school classrooms have cubicles, no i'ts not the same, it's quite different acutally because you know..cubicles and such.  If you benefit from having a lunch break, why wouldn't it make sense for kids to have that benefit as well?

Again, I am in an open area, just like a classroom would be. I don't always have a lunch break. I sometimes work through lunch, like some students do. I don't find a problem with that and neither do the school, obviously.

<<Nope not laptops. They cant require all kids to buy laptops.>>

Who said anything about requiring all kids to buy laptops?  Your school doesn't have computers for classes to use in the classroom for projects?  Do they have any type of computer?

Yes, computers. Not laptops. No need.

<<Then dont claim that kids are skipping a meal.>>

It's simple logic, if kids don't have a lunch period, then logic would follow that some kids are skipping meals and since you don't know all the kids, you can't say that they don't, now can you?

No, you are incorrect as I have stated before many times. You don't need a lunch period to eat. Just like I don't need to have a lunch break at work to eat. I can't say if kids who don't have lunch periods or DO have lunch periods skip lunch. Not rocket science there.

<<Not when it is all around the school.>>

No, it still takes time...simple logic, really.

Simple logic that you can throw garbage in the cans during classes? lol

<<And kids could easily have a lunch period and not eat.>>

Of course, which is why it's silly to for the school to support unhealthy eating habits while requiring kids to have pe for "healthy reasons", total contradiction and more wonky health ideas.

Nope, not "wonky" (is this a mid west phrase? lol). You can give a child a lunch period and that does not mean they are going to eat. So if the school is doing ths to support healthy eating habits, how is that working? You can easily eat healthy and not sit in a cafeteria for 42 minutes. We used to have an open campus when I went to school. You could go out for lunch. Was that promoting unhealthy eating too? You were not sitting in the cafeteria during that time. You can sit in a restaurant or in your car and eat or on the grass and eat, etc.

<<So you remember that classes usually don't start exactly when the bell rings.>>

Again, yes and that is why the instruction time is less than 42 minutes which I have said multiple times now, do you still not understand that basic math?

<<Yep the question was how big are the desks that you can fit a lunch "tray" on it WITH your school work.>>

No, there were two questions, I copied them both multiple times you ignored the second one, why is that?

<<So what is the problem? Why do you think they would have a problem with it?>>

I never said eating with others was a problem, you made that all up in various ways.

<<So why would they have a difficulty eating in class with other students as your ds does during lunch period?>>

First you didn't know the difference between an office and a classroom, now you don't know the difference between a lunch room and a classroom?  Have you not ever been in a high school?  

<<Again, I am in an open area, just like a classroom would be. I don't always have a lunch break. I sometimes work through lunch, like some students do. I don't find a problem with that and neither do the school, obviously.>>

So now you don't have cubes, your office area is set up exactly like a typical high school classroom?   How does that work with rows of desks without any storage for yourself?  I find it interesting that you like a break but can't understand why kids need that same lunch break.

<<Yes, computers. Not laptops. No need.>>

So do they have 20+ desktops in each classroom for use by the students or do you have to go to a computer lab?

<<No, you are incorrect as I have stated before many times. You don't need a lunch period to eat. Just like I don't need to have a lunch break at work to eat. I can't say if kids who don't have lunch periods or DO have lunch periods skip lunch. Not rocket science there.>>

I never said one needs a lunch period, do stop making up stuff and if you can't say if they skip lunch or not, it seems quite silly for you to tell me that I can't claim that they do.

<<Simple logic that you can throw garbage in the cans during classes? lol>>

Of course, but it stil takes time.

<<Nope, not "wonky" (is this a mid west phrase? lol). You can give a child a lunch period and that does not mean they are going to eat. So if the school is doing ths to support healthy eating habits, how is that working? You can easily eat healthy and not sit in a cafeteria for 42 minutes.

You can sit in a restaurant or in your car and eat or on the grass and eat, etc.>>

So basically a clear contradiction as I said earlier, thanks...no wonder the school thinks pe is so important, they have to make up for their lack of lunch time.  Makes total sense no, there is a problem and they are trying to correct that problem.  Thanks!
