    This is communication with people on here. Video games replace physical activity. This does not.

    So says you with nothing to back that up whatsoever. Are you telling me kids don't "replace physical activity" with chat rooms, and myspace, and facebook...but everyone who plays video games does so in lieu of physical activity. You'll pardon for calling BS on this line of reasoning.

    I don't see any reason to play video games since you can play those sports in real life.

    On top of that the sports I really dislike are baseball, golf, and football (American), all American sports.

Simple life where you could go play soccer outside and not care about video games. The feeling of being born in your country, most of your friends having parents with a similar financial status and you being a native born kid and not an immigrant

    Then came Gorbachev and made some crazy changes and things got worse.

    Then I come to America and Gorbachev is a great guy here. Russia gets bashed, wrestling is a worthless sport, soccer on the streets is nonexistent, parents work overtime and have no time for kids.

    I am considerexd 2nd rate and an immigrant and I don't know what anyone says at school because I don't know the language. I am supposed to be grateful to America for welcoming me here.

    Tough changes for a kid that loved his country and his people no?
    Big,

    This may be the most enlightening post of yours that I have ever read. I will probably still disgree with many of your posts - but at least now I understand a little. Do you remember that I invited you to come to Iowa to experience the Iowa wrestling "mania" after you posted that we Iowans were too culturally deprived to appreciate anything but wrestling? My invitation stands. Come here for an Iowa dual, National Duals or the DIII Nationals. I will be your host.

    I totally agree. I prepared a response, but didn't post it because there really isn't anything to say. We simply have different philosophies - we agree on some things, but disagree on many more.

    ....and I went and created the NCAA Pick'em Pool just for you.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
