Should Kids Be Bribed To Do Well In School?

Davey McDave Re:No (706 comments)

What does our education system already teach them - as long as you're answering questions correctly, you're doing okay? It's easy to put decent solutions in unsavoury words.

I don't think "doing things well results in rewards" is that bad a lesson to teach kids, and I'm a teacher.

Son Sues Mother Over Facebook Posts

Davey McDave Re:Alternatives (428 comments)

A case of RTFA in this case, a careless untruthful comment on the summary.

"In a document from the Clark County prosecutor, he alleges she hacked his account, changed his password and posted things that involve slander about his personal life."

The posts weren't from her account on his statuses or whatever, it sounds like she actually went onto HIS account and posted slanderous things in his name (or at least, that is what is being accused). Sounds a little more serious now.

"Three Strikes" To Go Ahead In Britain

Davey McDave Re:they need something based on the rules of crick (294 comments)

Believe it or not, we know what baseball is in the UK and how it works. It was derived from Rounders which is very popular with school children.

Game, DVD Sales Hurting Music Industry More Than Downloads

Davey McDave Re:News Flash: (223 comments)

Mod parent up. I'm sorry, but if you can't find decent new music these days, you aren't looking. Besides, there's plenty of good rap. Saying one genre is terrible and is responsible for the downfall of music lacks imagination and is usually terribly wrong. Music is better and more varied than its ever been, and if you have exposure to anything other than MTV, you will realise this.

Vital Parts of Games As DLC?

Davey McDave Re:In other news... (446 comments)

Cue the "you must be new here", but RTFA.

"... I mean, we could have dropped the last half of the single player in GoW2 and made that downloadable, but of course that really would have upset people who don't have Live. I don't want to hurt customers who are just trying to play our game."
