    Kill them is right, all those tank crews needlessly burnt to death because of an outdated and flawed design by the time everyone else had evolved (and you know when the russians are designing and upgrading better your at the wrong end of the drawing board) They should have had the pershing fielded for D day

    I'm of the mind that the Sherman tank was more about advancing infantry than battling tank on tank.
    They were small and maneuverable. Pershings would have filled the landing craft and perhaps never made it ashore in quantities to have made a difference. The Sherman field mod (toothed ripper) to punch through the hedge rows kept allied forces moving forward and if not for that who's to say where we'd be.

    I got no problem with the grade given. The comments are being read out of context.

    If the assignment was learning how to reliably estimate values rather than how to calculate an answer...the student did it wrong, despite providing a more accurate answer.

    Florida Man slaps sleeping girlfriend with a cheeseburger, sheriff says


    Deputies said Jones bopped his girlfriend in the face with a cheeseburger while she slept. Once she woke up, she said he continued to hit her with the cheeseburger, pull her hair and kick her down the stairs.

    When deputies arrived, they found the girlfriend covered in food particles.

    Jones has been charged with battery.

    I was checking out the facts on turtles just last night with my daughter. Posited question to a girl graduating with a degree in biology this weekend: What is the taxonomic distinction between turtles and tortoises? ... and don't forget about those pesky terrapins.

    I'm not looking for a general guideline answer; that is easy. What is the scientifically correct answer?

    She didn't exactly know, nor did I. So I looked it up. You get no points for looking up the answer online. Yes, Wikipedia knows.

    The use of the word "reasonable" infers some latitude in the problem solving process.

    If you can subtract 28 from 103 in your head in less time than it takes you to read the problem, the exact answer is a plenty good estimate, especially when the problem gives the exact answer and asks you if it's a close enough estimate.
