How do you ban memes? It's kind of a bit too conceptual to have a logical ban. It's like banning fun. The kind of stupid thing that a 1 dimensional character in a Harry Potter story would do, but which makes no sort of sense at all.

Old news but my favorite duet from New Zealand did a cool gig in London a few month back. It’s currently possible to watch it on HBO and it will be released on DVD and vinyl in March. You guys should watch it if you haven’t already done so.

Is it when they did their tour? I think they did Manchester when I was in Japan. Joei went to the London date. I saw them in London about 10 years ago.

I couldn’t tell whether you were trolling or not, sorry.

I am listening to the band Talk Talk. A couple weeks ago Ward recommended I listen to them. Since then, the lead singer has been band from living. Sad Tea

Although he was band from living, I don’t have plans to listen to a Prodigy album in the foreseeable future.

I liked them back in the 90s but imho it’s one of those bands that’s very dated and doesn’t really stand the test of times.

I heard about this, and it is by far the best policy FordNation has come up with. This is a taking-the-classrooms-back-to-1998 I can get behind.

What don’t they think it will change? Having phones in classrooms vs not having phones in classrooms sounds like a big difference. They think all the kids will still have illicit phones?

They just think kids will find some other thing to not pay attention with. You know kind of what we did.

In any case. I’m not against it. I would hope they collect data and study the result to measure the impact. But that’s not very efficient so it won’t happen. boo

Of course kids will find another thing to distract themselves with. But that’s basically the same argument as “why take away guns, people will just find another weapon to kill with.”

France already did that long ago, they’re just copying us.

In France the idea is not just about the attention span, it’s also a measure to limit potential bullying, as well as the social marker thing. Anyway, apparently there were plenty of reasons to band these evil phones.

On a slightly different topic, about the use of computer or tablets versus using a pen to take notes, apparently there’s now strong evidence that taking notes by hand helps when it comes to memorizing things. It also helps with motricity in general, apparently typing on a keyboard or using a couple of fingers on a screen is not the same as using your wrist and hands to write. (Personally my main issue with keyboards is carpal tunnel syndrome, although that’s just because I’m an old lady.)

Italy’s populist right wing government has band unvaccinated kids from attending school. I’m pretty sure we’ve been doing this in FordNation from the days where it was called Ontario.
