Talk to your kids about capitalism, before someone else does

Also feel free to pinpoint sources. I just don't get it. The whole "but my child is nonverbal" bla gets me. Learn your child language or learn a language together.

Speaking is overrated.

Can someone explain me something?

Is there any reason why a nonverbal autistic child is incapable of using sign language? I mean, what's the matter? Are there nonverbal autists who are incapable of learning/using sign language (while provided qualified classes)?

fire the football coach and use that money to hire 50 decently paid copy editors to help edit and organise all the research done on campus.

It wouldn't fix everything but it would greatly improve the quality of research and make it more accessible and understandable.

Engineers are terrible at communicating.

JK Rowling reveals that Snape threw the first brick at stonewall

Thanks to whomever here recommended me Casablanca. It's a nice movie. A lot of racist stereotypes, though.

Foxes, being intelligent creatures, would really rather not actually fight each other tooth and claw. It's undignified. Someone may get hurt. The /winner/ may get hurt. It's just a bad time for everyone.

They have a system of posturing (literally. Adopting one posture or another) so that a fox who thinks themself obviously more capable can broadcast this fact and the other can either dispute it or, more commonly, say "Oh, fine, I guess."

When this fails, they engage in…The Fox Trot.

Both foxes will stand up on their hind legs and rest their forepaws on each other shoulders while trying both to balance and shove the other one over while shouting at them.

Of course, to humans, it sounds like gekkering, but I suspect that beyond the language barrier it's basically a combination of wordplay, attempting to stun your opponent by sheer force of personality, ritualized, ornate boasting, and poetry slam.
