Why is it so inactive around here?
Just got back, went to a friends house for the day. His family is strongly Catholic, and it was quite an experience to see how they prayed for a whole minute before eating. It wasn't weird or anything, I just never saw people actually do it.
But I've changed my ways now...
I found quite a few ridiculous scholarship prompts. Three as of right now.
- The first one was open to "Germans from Russia, historical society essay"
- How Americans can learn from the recent revolution in Egypt
- Why Nuclear weapons are bad. The truth that schools didn't teach and how media has ignored the topic of nuclear weapons.
The first one I found a bit funny just. Obviously this prompt is in America because, obviously Germans in Russia wouldn't be a fun thing.
The second one isn't that bad from the initial prompt questions themselves. They just ask you to analyze the Egypt rebellion and insurrection lately and how it could apply to America. quite a good topic. But going to their website, makes matters go downhill. They are anti regime with their main focus on humanitarian aid. My essay would have been on the effects of American imperialism in the 70's and 80's in Egypt and how they were the ones to put the dictator up. They would have shot down my essay.
The third one was the worst. Becuase it claimed that the media in history to present has largely ignored nuclear weapons. I wonder what they think the dropping of nukes on Japan, Iran, Cold war, North Korea, China, Israel confclicts and many conflicts currently are heavily talking about. Their top winner last year was also quite bad.
This was the video. She largely was ignorant to the fact that you CAN'T, just reduce the stockpile of nukes and THEN get all the money ever invested into that pile that was reduced back into usable currency. It leaves to interpretation if she meant the 54 billion annually or the total. But the scenes after it imply that she means the approx 3.5 trillion that the U.S would have gotten back. 54 billion can barely do anything. Humanitiarian aid to other countries given by the U.S is about 20-30 billion set each year. It can help but not too too much.
