    How much homework do your kids get?

    I have a just turned 5 year old and he gets the usual writing of Cap and small case letters of Alphabet weekly and writing numbers out from 0-100. They have been doing this for a year now and just started multiplication which he is doing quite well with. Don't get me wrong, we play hard, but if things are idle, I pull out more of the same and have him get to it. On weekends I breaks out the paint and canvas and let him do exactly what he wants. Im not going to count on any school system in these early years and he will definitely learn cursive writing if I have to teach him myself, which likely will be. The boy is going to have a signature and hopefully better penmanship that his pops.
  3. Anyone know the procedure or if you can order new style Klipsch badges even if your speakers are older and not current ? I would like to get a set of the new Retro style for my older K-horns, but don't know if its possible
  4. Yes, but a lot smaller. I ordered a set of those, but they're very big and don't look right to me on the speakers. I should have clarified the size before ordering, but $50 dollars later here they are
  5. Im guessing there may be an issue trying to get the new Retro style KLIPSCHORN emblem?

    Supposedly a man has 50% more upper body strength than a woman on average and I would think the lower body strength has an advantage too. No one is complaining here about anyone being a trans, only the outlying few that take advantage of a woman's gendered competition where there is an overwhelming, obvious advantage. The biggest note being that these few cant see the advantage and think it is now their right to compete in said competition even though they are obviously still their born gender. If the previous pictures in this thread don't tell the story, then you likely wont ever get it.

    I personally do not. Although, I would treat them the same as any person I might pass, I would certainly go out of my way to avoid them if my 5 year old was with me.
  8. Why is a new pair of duck hunting waders so stiff? What about new pair of cowboy boots?, well not expecting many here to know either, but I could be wrong. Now Im going to come out and say this is tell tale for a boutique brand and nothing more than a crutch even though there is likely some math to it. People that have speakers on this level will likely have a guru showing up and running response and what not trying to get the best layout of the space and putting the rubber to the road so to speak. I can see how the surrounds and motors would loosen up a bit. I could also see how they would spec different if they were sitting in humid Florida environment as opposed to a dry and colder Minnesota environment. But once again, that would show pesky variables that change sound, even if just revealed on white pages.

    That's too bad. Joe and Ben broke it down pretty well and also touched on many other areas tied to this. There were also some funny "truths" along the way with it. Maybe you'll find time later to watch it.

    That's the thing, you don't even have to remove it to compete with women

    Exactly. At least not in a physical state, but in their mind is where it is different. It comes down to the brain in the end, and where this meets with rationalizing and reasoning is why these male/female entities cant grasp the moral and ethical aspect of having a physical advantage over the females genetic build.

    I don't think anyone is arguing that here. Its basic math for most.

    I win! I really beat the girls! Wait, I mean..... Bizarre, Cult like and offensive for the female athlete.

    Well its a little deeper than that Zen. When does a man "actually" become a woman?

    What? Did my generalization not makes sense? Its easy to get flip flopped in some of these negative number discussions. But yes I agree, feel free to compete where your DNA allows.

    Basically about a Lesbian that is calling out Transgenders that are competing in their non DNA bracketed gender of sports https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/martina-navratilova-transgender-women-sport-cheating-rachel-mckinnon-a8783671.html

    You're right with the actual physical aspect of it Jeff, but the biggest pile of it is Dysphoria. And why should anyone care who wants to change their gender? But don't be an amateur athlete taking on a disadvantaged field and come out feeling like some friggin hero. You're delusional, amiss, obtuse and are unable to grasp the whole moral concept of being a man competing among women. And it appears that around 3/4 or more of the comments of folks share the base common morals that any kid in the fourth grade could grasp. https://twitter.com/rachelvmckinnon?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1051495467979173888&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww1.cbn.com%2Fcbnnews%2Fus%2F2018%2Foctober%2Ftransgender-man-who-says-hes-a-woman-wins-womens-cycling-race More thought processing here by him: 9. Note that if you change your gender for the purposes of sport, you are BANNED from changing it again for FOUR YEARS. ...so you can't just 'switch back' and compete again as a man. You'd have to waste 4 years. (6/n)

    Just plain old dumb. Run with what the good Lord gave you, These people have real mental deficiencies and I don't mean for that to sound bad, because it must be a horrible and perplexing thing to go through. And if you need to, so be it, but don't be a putz like this chap. There are clear muscular advantages in some situations and its down right insulting to anyone with a 3 digit IQ, let alone the gender that is being taken advantage of. Its effing cheating man! This "guy" must feel so proud and liberated. https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2018/october/transgender-man-who-says-hes-a-woman-wins-womens-cycling-race

    Which 4k blu ray???? Without spending $1000

    Its crazy, but I think she is right too. I don't buy movies any more, but I do try and pick up what multi channel music I can and when it is affordable.

    No, that's looks good. I saw a nature demo and the greens looked really fake and almost fluorescent. Bad demo I guess.
  22. Just hooked up an 8802A Pre to my amp two nights ago. The refurb prices fell enough I figured it was time to pull the trigger. Coming from using a Denon 4311 AVR as a pre, obviously I was pretty excited. I cant remember when I bought the 4311, but Im thinking its a good 8+ years old. Anyway, the 8802 has more definition and clarity. The tracks in the content seem to be more layered, but not too analytical. Its not as wet sounding and the mid and top end is more controlled. From my usual round of music of ALAC tunes, I immediately could pick out background items that were more covered before. I think there may be something to these newer AK 4490 DAC's and source topo's and whatnot with this newer unit. I have only used it at upper conversation levels so far, but hopefully I can open the taps up more this weekend. On a side note, I cant read anything on the remote. It feels small and delicate compared to the old Denon. The GUI is ok, but a few things that have obviously changed over the years in GUI's like quick access to the sub being turned off and on in direct pure mode isn't simple like the old Denon. I wish I could compare this newer Pre to a newer or modern AVR as a better comparison.

    ATI AT1802 NEW HUGE PRICE $575.00

    That's cheap enough to buy and stick up in a closet as a backup

    Why does HDR and the Dolby Vision look like the color saturation is at a cartoon level?
  25. Look like Indy or designer (maybe) CW I's. You might try and suck that cover out with a vacuum hose. Not bad for almost 50 years old
