I have two ps3's which I like and I never will buy an xbox360. Preference really comes down to what your mates have, and the few exclusive titles. To me a Ps3 represented better value, with inbuilt hard drive, and an array of media settings with bluray and wifi. Plus everything looks awesome on my full hd tv.
If all you want to do is play online, then by all means I would suggest Xbox360 for its Xbox Live interface.
But if you jump on only a couple of times a week, ps3 is probably the wiser option, as you don't have to pay for most of the online content.
It all comes down to, what you want to use it for.
Dentention is up to an hour, not up to 20 years. It doesn't teach you anything other than how to waste time. The only time I really showed disrespect to teachers is when it was being shown to me. The Teachers are not always right and the punishment of detention treats you otherwise. It teaches you to hate the suppressors and not to embrace the often need neutrality you need within the playground.
It honestly sounds like you were probably bullied in school and have no idea of what it is like to get a detention. It's a slap on the wrist.
Fear should not be the only reason as to not offend. The benefits of be socially well behaved should be well demonstrated, but this is often not the case in schools. Sure you may get a certificate for behaving, but honestly wtf does a peice of paper mean to me? It just always seems the world is out to punish you when you're a school; Why aggrevate this further?
Little shits will always be little shits. Internal Suspensions and Picking up rubbish is alot more productive and a worse penaltly. I used to get dentions, alot of detentions (weeks on end) but i still got to see all my friends, because half of them were in there and the detention only lasted for half of lunch.
The idea of dentention is very old fashioned and schools need to come up with more productive ways of punishing kids.
I think we, as humans can show our dissapproval of others choices without having tobe disrespectful. However someone can choose to interpret something as rude, inappropriate, or down right disgusting. Should we go out of our way to show disrespect? No. Sometimes however this is unavoidable and being disrespectful towards somone blatently and deliberately is wrong.
