Ok, I have a question that doesn't need a thread:

What happened to the "Community" tab that used to be only until very recently on the home page. It's hidden now under "Blog."

 

Any reason?

It is now a banner under the "search" box, along with bookstore, etc

Ah, I see it there. Thanks.

 

Altho, honestly, I never would have glanced at it there without being told - those tabs look too much like advertisement links.

The first one is clips my girlfriend filmed of me on a road trip.  I didn't get all that I wanted to (a lot of parks I didn't film at that would have supplied a lot of good clips), but I'm happy with what turned out.  The second video is just locals skating the vert ramp in Virginia Beach, I'm not in that one, I happened to film all that in one session.

In 2009 there were 294 "failed, foiled, or successfully executed terrorist attacks" in Europe. How many of the 294 were Islamists responsible for?

I didn't know about a few of those. Sickening.. ; especially if you think about in what high regard the people of Britain and the US hold their country.

I really like the Sudbury School Valley video. It looks amazing, and it seems like to make a lot more

sense than the unschoolers who leave their kids at home. Does anyone knows good books about

the school or about unschooling in general?

Complete agree; that's so amazing. Nothing like the free market to allow them sell all of that work for such a cheap price.

Good stuff. I especially liked the part where he said that there is no law there is only interpretation, and a 'constitution' only exists in people's minds, and so it's ideology that matters.
