The Vast Majority of Sociology is Useless.

Nivek
Ragnar

After reading a few books on sociology, notably a few religious case studies and a few "New Dads" studies by various graduates, I have come to the conclusion that sociology is a useless field. While this may be premature, I'd still like to test whether this is true or whether I'm just not competent enough to see the value that it provides.

Should Summer Break Be Ten Weeks Long?

Joey888
SJM

Many people do not like school. I, on the other hand enjoy school. When summer break comes around, I am relieved, but after a few weeks, I get bored and long to go back to school. My point of argument today is if summer break should be shortened from 10 weeks, to perhaps, 8. Many students can benefit from longer school years. Over the course of the school year, there are many breaks, including winter, Thanksgiving, and spring. On top of that, you have several holidays. Two extra weeks wouldn't h...

Is Google Drive better tha iCloud?

LittleDucky555
SJM

Google Drive is better than iCloud because in Google Drive, you can access your stuff from anywhere, whereas in iCloud, you have a huge risk of losing all of your stuff. My uncle had to delete his computer's harddrive, so he stored his stuff in iCloud. But, when he went to get it back, it was all gone. 3000 pictures were gone. If he had stored his stuff in Google Drive, this would not have happened....
