Go to Post It is much harder for someone to misuse the labor you do than it is for them to misuse of the dollar you pledge... IKE Akash Rastogi
Go to Post In real life (IE when you go to apply your engineering skills to tasks in industry) there will be constraints on all sorts of things - many of which may or may not be "fair" or even "intelligent".

Go to Post And to think, a lot of students are planning parties and celebrations on their last day of school and you guys are recycling trash. JaneYoung Karibou
Go to Post Someone tried throwing out a perfectly good fleece blanket! It even had the quadratic formula on it! WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU THROW AWAY THE QUADRATIC FORMULA?? Karibou kramarczyk
Go to Post If time only weren't a factor, everything would be done. Schnabel Molten
