Wait a minute?
You mean this is recent?
You see my youngest is 18 so I figured you meant at least before the years of the Net? This makes it even worst in my opinion.
Maybe because I do tons of research for the political job I do, I ALWAYS check various sources, contacts and chat before typing anything or stating it is fact before I authorize to even publish something, translate it or even consider it for a campaign project, I never and I mean never trust the Internet for anything on the first search/try.
We have an awesome poster in here on the Civil War (150 years...) and I read it every single day, but because of the way I am I always am OCDed about having to verify some of the stuff he posts not because I don't trust what he posts (it actually always is), but because I need to know more of what he posted, dig deeper and it is via these extra searches that I learn and if a new search reveals something fishy? I search again not only the net but I head to the Library (yep like good old days) or I ask co-workers and friends and my dad's Legion buddies!
All and all what I am trying to say is that Teachers should know better than to look at the net and grab the first ting they see, or at least ask someone if you are unsure, you know there are still some of us with a little bit of brains out there???
On a side note, a friend of mine claims he read that Hitler only had one testicle.........I went WTF? Now I have a goal for the afternoon, to find the truth! What was the name of his Quack needle injection Doctor again, Morrell something???? Here I go again...........
It is much harder to think about doing something than actually doing it!
