Re: "Alternate Currency" Discussion

At first glimp I was reading Alternate Currency too. And thought it was part of a clever joke. Something to do with a Tesla getting screwed by bankers or something. But then I found out it was just my creative/lazy reading. :P

Nice strip. :D

Re: Dumbing down education - Are the "best" systems really good?

You need good teachers. Does not matter what country or ranking. In the Netherlands the goverment and cooperations also keep reforming the education and it is really harmful. But I am convinced in the end its about creative inspiring teachers and the rest is mostly BS.

Re: Why is America more conservative than other countries?

My layman idea would be something in the line of having not much history as a country. Therefore common culture/identity being a construct dependent on holding fast. This indeed requires a conservative mentality. Till you wake up or hit a wall of cause. :)

Re: One Hour Parking Show - Feedback wanted

The site itself looks a bit confusing to me, with all the lettertypes and sizes and the ambiguous text buttons. It's not to clear where one button begins and the other stops. Sure People can read and make sense out of it but in the end of the day people are lazy.
