Awesome August Holidays

Aug 01, 2014

Besides all the crazy, weird and totally bizarre day-long occasions that happen, August is the official month used to recognize Catfish, Golf, Eye Exams, Water Quality, Romance Awareness, Peaches, Foot Health, American Artists, Home Businesses and Inventors. And then there are the week-long observances in August: Clown Week (first week), Elvis Week (second week), Apple Week (second week), Smile Week (second week), Air Conditioning Appreciation Week (third week) and American Dance Week (third week).

No matter what you celebrate, we at Kidzworld wish you a Happy August!

Of course not. You cannot comment or theorise on something when you're extremely uninformed about said something.  My philosophy is you can only state, confidently, when you're actually knowledgeable on the moment. I, for example, know nothing about digital forensics, so I won't say something about it. Unfortunately many people still try to butt in without actually researching in today's public.

Hmm.... In the grand scheme of things, opinion really doesn't matter. Just the entire construct of it. But when it comes to life, advise, and decision making....opinions do matter. And at that point, opinions are subjective because one opinion might matter to one person, while the other person might not value the same exact opinion being made. Answer: Yes and no, and even when yes; it's still no.

It depends who you say it to and how you say it. If you are saying shut up joking to your best friend that's just funny but if you say shut up to someone seriously that is rude. If you say shut up to an adult or your parents that is just stupid.
