Ok, thanks. If I could, I will tell a nice story.....
To the Next World Snoopy.
Shinning Armor finally got his cutie mark and now, everything was looking up. He knew his parents loved him, he had a wonderful sister and Candice was the girl of his dreams. No longer did he think his cutie mark would be in kite flying.He was going to tell his dog everything....his strange and wonderful beagle, his Snoopy!
He was packing to leave.That silly little bird was flying excitedly around him in directions all 360. "What's going on?"Snoopy put his dog dish on his head."You leaving?"The beage gave the pony a quick hug."Where are you going?"The beagle got only three trots distance."I won't let you go!"Shinning armor threw up a shield separating beagle from bird.The bird pressed up against the shield, Snoopy looked anxiously back and forth."I feed you every day, I took care of you when you got sick, I hurt my neck building that dog house for you, I bought that collar around your neck...with bits I sweated bucket over!Your not taking another step until I know what is going on!"The irate unicorn said.
Snoopy made a look and sounds of resignation and sat down. He opened his bag and pulled out a very large scrap book and patted the ground beside him, the yellow bird flew back and sat on Snoopy's head. Shinning Armor sat down and looked at the wonderful images. Before the first page of some kind of biped in a yellow shirt was what looked like a tiny manufacturer stamp of a bouncing pink pony, he then turned the pages, clips of paper and pictures of the biped, taller....next were other pictures, more clips of paper.
"I don't understand?"the unicorn said.Snoopy pointed at Armor's cutie mark."Is that why you have to go?"the beagle nodded, tears in his eyes, he then broke down, tears everywhere,he really didn't want to go.Shinning Amor held him close. The deluge finally ended with the dog sniffling.The unicorn let go looked at the beagle and smiled. The beagle returned the smile pulled out something that looked like a camera, they both posed for a head shot.Snoopy and Shinning then both stood up, Snoopy put his hat back on, bumped his paw to Armor's hoof, and disappeared with Woodstock into the wild grasses.
Because of *HER* not keeping the ''robot pet'' under control ?
That teacher is one serious piece of blind dumb-ass, if I ever saw one... The whole class was ''mob-rushing'' her and her ''pet''. Talk of a teacher not being able to dispense proper discipline in a class. -_-
well, he could be. He looks kinda different than the guy in page 27 but still has some similarities so he could be the same guy. Besides, if he was the principal, it would make more sense if he said "march your arse to my office" instead of "the principles(spelling error?) office".
Still, how can they even allow their teachers(or principals?) to use such language with their students? "March your arse". what is he, a teacher or a drill instructor?
he is the same guy I apologize for any discrepancy. The teacher here is modeled after personal experience and most of my teachers were hard. harder than this guy by far. (they had to be, students are hard to control and merciless in the face of weakness) I intended him to merely look "put upon."
As for the language, I would consider the phrase in question to be mild and acceptable in the circumstance. (so would my teachers as they actually used it). You see, I have discovered that the USA and UK have very different views on swearing. namely, we do, you don't.
To us, swearing in real life is just a way to punctuate a sentence with graded levels of our annoyance at a situation or thing. the stronger the word, the stronger the feeling. Thus swearing can be considered as part of the language itself. Besides, swearing has been shown to be healthy, because it releaves stress, and can actually reduce pain and tolerance of pain.
so phrazes like "move you're arse" and "dang" don't even register on the scale of bad language over here.
I have not watched an episode of this, as I do not like this brand of comedy in the slightest, I did however watch clips on youtube to see what you meant,
the teachers and there interaction with the students in bad education is so unrealistic as to be make me cringe and skip ahead because it's about as believable as a flying pork sandwitch with the ability to grant wishes for the price of a grain of sand.
However, the kids are a different kettle of fish. I can totally believe what I've seen of the kids language and attitude. however no one is suicidal enough to use that language in the direct presence of a teacher they do however use it amongst themselves and sometimes to random strangers. especially kids from in and around London. though I hasten to point out that these are polarized characters and not therefore 100% believable.
There is no problem with replicating the touch of skin or fur in robotics; there is even prosthetic hands that have real time touch sense, so, in the pure physicall matter, there is little limitation (accurate motion is another thing). Actually, the breaking point in robotics is the simulation of feelings. Modern robotics canīt simulate feelings, only copy and reproduce them in a very limited way (the same way you record a a music cd and reproduce it in your computer). So if you see a winged unicorn crying and calling her mummy when she feels hurt, youstart to think that maybe thatīs not just a toy, as the girls in the comic do.
We are faaaaar away from creating totally perfect robots with accurate motion and intelligence, but not so far from creating physically accurate robots that can be mistaken with real animals or people at sight and even touch, if you donīt see it at full movement or ask them complex questions o routines.
From wikipedia, on artificial skin: "The skin produced would only be 1 millimeter thick and would only be used to rebuild the epidermis. They can also make the skin 1.5 millimeters thick, which would allow the dermis to repair itself if needed. This would require bone marrow from a donation or from the patient's body. The bone marrow would be used as a “seed," and would be placed in the grafts to mimic the dermis. This has been tested on animals and has been proven to work with animal skin."
