So I recently bought a pair of decent headphones. Well, I'm not sure if they qualify as decent, they were just $25, but when all you've ever owned is $4 stuff ... I figured I'd go a step up. It's been quite a let down. The albums known for having good production sound much better, but some albums just sound horrible. I'd honestly rather use the cheap ear buds in some cases.

It usually takes a few days for the headphones to 'warm up'. Stick with it a little longer and tell us in a few days how it sounds and whether it has improved.

I'll post again in a couple days about the headphones, see how they are once I get to listen more. I guess I should have had more realistic expectations.  angel

What kind of headphones? I have Koss Porta Pros and I'm fairly happy with those.

I'll have to think about them for the next purchase. The ones I got were Sennheiser HD 202 II Professional Headphones.

Today was tiring. My history teacher felt obligated to explain religious people to the class. "These people actually believe they should love God above all else, even family!" I really have never realized that basic religious thought is completely foreign to modern people. Total love of God was probably the very first thing I was taught in life.

Then in my humanities class I got to hear about how gender roles are changing and more men will be "stay-at-home dads" in the more "equal" future.

LOL. Your history teacher is a museum piece himself. A leftist stereotype straight from the 70's or something. Nobody is like that anymore.

Sucks. A Hebrew Professor, who happened to be a babyboomer. had me read a "history book" written by a Cambridge history professor and talk about it in class. The author of the book still believed in historical materialism and presented that nonsense as if it were a scientific fact. I blasted the book and its author and said that the Cambridge professor should be stripped of his academic title for presenting propaganda as science. Needless to say, the Hebrew professor was furious and said that I should write a book before making such comments and that his generation had fought against people like me; then he went on to compare me to his old professor who was 'oppressive'. Weird stuff.

Oh man, I had some fun professors in undergrad.

One was openly anti-Christian (ex-Baptist with Buddhist sympathies) and very involved in political activism, including the local Occupy movement that consisted of like a dozen people. I think it was the first day of the first class I ever had with him, as I would go on to have several more, and he told the class a joke at religious people's expense. It went something along the lines of: "What's the difference between praying to God and talking to yourself? You get no answer, but at least talking to yourself you don't expect one." Or something like that, I forget the exact wording of the punch line. Anyway, comments against Christianity were sprinkled throughout all of his primarily American history courses, lol.

Another was a political science professor. He started off the first day, yet again, of class with a question. "Who all in here is Christian? If so, raise your hands." I was fluctuating between militant atheism and deism at the time so I (luckily) didn't, but one woman did raise her hand out of the entire class of a dozen or so people. He told her directly, "Be warned, you will probably be offended in this class." Pretty much explaining that he didn't care for Christianity, etc. Our readings included various political texts from Christians, ranging from Biblical stuff to things like the Mayflower Compact, in which we would analyze and harshly critique them for effectively being stupid with stupid views. Also non-Christian things like the Hammurabi Code, through which he would less-than-subtly argue that Christianity was derivative. That woman dropped the course by the end of it, or at least stopped showing up after a few weeks.

I also had an atheist professor from a atheist/political dissident family that had fled Syria decades ago, where he was ultimately raised in Britain. Oddly he was married to a Syrian-raised Muslim woman, from a devout Muslim family herself. Interestingly he was only really knowledgeable of Catholicism and hardly knew much about Protestantism, but probably as a result he'd drop some pretty negative comments about the Catholic Church or Catholicism in general throughout his classes (which were usually about Islam or Islamic history). He would sometimes follow them up by saying, "I realize I'm pretty critical of Catholicism, but just wait until I talk about Islam." Although, he never did make as strongly negative comments about the latter.

Weird stuff.

I don't know how it works in history, but certainly in linguistics these days one must always be circumspect in one's theoretical assumptions. I see that as a sign that linguistics is maturing as a science; certainly if you look at older works, you'll find plenty of dogmatism and fanatical attachment or opposition to a particular theory (e.g. the "language wars" in the 1960s between the American structuralists and the generativists, or in the 1970s between the Chomskyans and the generative semanticists). Nowadays, however, that kind of passion usually marks you out as a crank. It makes the field more boring, I admit, but also probably more reliable.

At the same time, almost all the linguists I know have the same conventional left-liberal views you find everywhere in Western academia, so one does need to be careful about saying anything politically incorrect. On the other hand, the field itself is relatively apolitical so there isn't normally any occasion for heated political discussion. Exceptions include discussion of language policy, or some of the discussion on language and mind which can have "racist" implications (according to some).

I usually manage by trying to find something -different- thats missing....amazingly that takes you close enough to Unfindablandia and you can then retrieve the other missing objects.


its either that or tear your entire house apart from top to bottom....

The good news is that we're starting the process of moving so that has started to happen. Maybe it will surface.

Today I was hitch-hiking or trying to, so no car picked me up but a horse drawn cart did. Two nice Gypsy guys. Maybe they thought I was one too.

What's the local attitude regarding "shechita" and the like? Yea or nay?

Well, it was probably the best method at the time if the spirit of the rule was 'with compassion'.  Since God saw fit to bless us with rifles using the knife across the throat is no longer the most compassionate way of doing it so it's kind of a white washed tomb sort of thing.  Still better than many factory farm methods, but if you are going to go for the expense and training, why not just (int he case of something large like a cow) put a .45-70 through it's head?  That is almost instantaneous.

however...

since the blood has to be drained out...trying to remove veins full of blood from an already dead animal is a much larger process/issue.  and if you wait too long to do so, I suspect then the meat would not be able to be koshered the rest of the way properly.

I think there are humane ways to slaughter, both in the Jewish tradition and not.

and there are non humane ways....both in the Jewish tradition and not.


When things veer into 'not', often greed is behind it, regardless of methods, etc.

I don't know about Zulu, but when I was in college, I lived with a happy Nigerian fellow who spoke Igbo.  Great guy, but there wasn't a single thing in that language which he could say without sounding like he wanted to cut my head off with a machete, drink moonshine out of my cleaned out skull, and slap my mom for crying about it.
