Early life and education[edit]
Stevens was born in Danville, Vermont, on April 4, 1792. He was the second of four children, all boys, and was named to honor the Polish general who served in the American Revolution, Thaddeus Kościuszko. His parents were Baptists who had emigrated from Massachusetts around 1786. Thaddeus was born with a club foot, at the time seen as a judgment from God for secret parental sin—and his older brother was born with the condition in both feet. The boys' father, Joshua Stevens, was a farmer and cobbler who struggled to make a living in Vermont. After fathering two more sons (born without disability) Joshua abandoned the children and his wife Sarah (née Morrill). The circumstances of his departure, and his subsequent fate, are uncertain; he may have died at the Battle of Oswego during the War of 1812.[1]

Sarah Stevens struggled to make a living from the farm, with the increasing aid of her sons.[2] She was determined that her sons improve themselves, and in 1807 moved the family to the neighboring town of Peacham, where she enrolled young Thaddeus in the Caledonia Grammar School (often called the Peacham Academy). He suffered much from the taunts of his classmates for his disability. Later accounts describe him there as "wilful, headstrong" with "an overwhelming burning desire to secure an education".[3]

After graduation in 1811, Stevens enrolled in the sophomore class at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. He spent his second year at Burlington College in Burlington, Vermont (today the University of Vermont) but had to return to New Hampshire when the Vermont school's campus was taken over by the federal government during the War of 1812. At Dartmouth, despite a stellar academic career, he was not elected to Phi Beta Kappa; this was said to have been a scarring experience for him.[4][5]

Stevens graduated from Dartmouth in 1814, speaking at graduation. Afterwards, he returned to Peacham and briefly taught there. Stevens also began to study law with Judge John Mattocks in Danville. In early 1815, after writing to friends in York, Pennsylvania, he moved there.[6]

I tend to go scissors because when you say "Rock Paper Scissors" scissors comes last so I automatically do that.

No wonder I always lose that **** .

I usually go for scissors, because everyone is expecting someone to go for rock, therefore they go for paper, and I take scissors. One time I won 9 out of 10 times whilst trying to figure out what the person thought that I'd go for.
That's they way to win a rock paper scissors. Fun fact, in my country we say rock scissors paper.

tree =/= paper
If it were true then we could just stick paper in the ground to get trees.
User avatar #28 to #16 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
by your logic
log =/= tree
because you could stick a log in the ground and not get a tree.
#37 to #28 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
Also a log isnt tree, its a log. Kinda like if you cut off a human leg, its not a human. its a leg.
I think that makes sense...
User avatar #40 to #37 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
Yes if you cut off something's leg and cut off your own leg you won't be able to tell the difference, no it's still a human leg it's just a dead/dying part of a human. It doesn't become a new species because it's dead lol
#41 to #40 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
Where did i say its not possible to identify the species? I said it wasnt a human. Because its not.

Are you saying if i cut off my leg, and im alone in a room, there are 2 humans in the room? Is english your second language or something? I dont think youre reading my words correctly.
User avatar #44 to #41 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
No english isn't my second language, I'm saying because it's dead it doesn't stop being a tree, just like because it's dead a leg doesn't stop being a leg. We just create words to get more clear definitions of the state of an object. Log means a dead tree, corpse means a dead creature. not sure how you get the idea i think a leg is an entirely new human but i was saying the trait of a leg like tiger or human doesn't disappear because it's dead much like the trait of being a tree doesn't disappear because it died
#45 to #44 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
log is not tree its part of a dead tree. Leg is not human, its part of human. idk how i can simplify it anymore for you.
#29 to #28 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
while my logic is flawed, the statement is still a fact.

OMG LOL confirmed for actually autistic in real life. nobody over the age 15 actually cares about this website as much as you do, "going back to get people" and thumbing them down when they laugh at your autistic comments and making comments like that

is this **** still on your tiny little underdeveloped mind?

pic related its you
#63 to #61 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
lol No the baby foot is me. Thats my brother. Simple mistake though bro!
Also im offended that youd call me autistic knowing that im not!

(see almost there try saying it a few more times)

not really paper is basically melted trees
#33 to #31 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
So... youre saying paper = tree? because thats like saying dinosaur = petroleum.
Partially true, but technically no.
User avatar #38 to #33 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
no i said "...paper is basically melted trees", see its right under the link
and while the simile is in good faith similar dinosaur = petroleum would only be wrong because any organic life is base of oil which is the base of petroleum.
Logs directly compose the majority of paper which is which is why it's fine to use a tree as a substitute for paper.
#39 to #38 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
you said my statement wasnt really a fact. So you did say tree = paper. If you didnt then what are you arguing? Everyone knows trees make paper.
User avatar #42 to #39 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
Just saying if you know a tree makes paper then their symbolically equivalent.
#43 to #42 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
no. if i die, i become a corpse. Following your logic i am currently a corpse.
User avatar #46 to #43 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
a corpse just means dead creature, you understand that right? >.> Your kind of getting crazy odd with your idea that something can only be called one thing. Words mean multiple things and equally represent multiple ideas.
#47 to #46 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
nouns are specific in certain situations. a log cannot become a tree, but a tree can become a log. See what im saying?
User avatar #54 to #47 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
Yes your trying to use noun in a very tight laced way. The problem is the human mind can associate between the two because they are the same species of plant. It is politically correct to say this dead one can only be called a log and living one can only be called tree but words only represent ideas and as long as the idea gets across then the act of speech/communication has succeeded. I am simply take the concept a step further by introducing that paper is also of tree origins and therefore the idea can be symbolically linked that a tree, log, and paper all represent the same thing in this particular case. This cannot be applied outside of this case as they hold almost no similar traits but it works here because it is a symbol of paper being represented and not the actual substance paper itself.
#56 to #54 - narflarg (04/05/2014) [-]
Well, symbolism isnt reality. Realistically its not equal. thats all im saying.
User avatar #57 to #56 - regius (04/05/2014) [-]
What is real? jk Yes it's not equal, but it's realistic symbolism and paper companies use symbolic trees all the time to represent themselves.

Here you guys are, on the internet, arguing about whether or not a live tree is paper due to a picture about a game played with your hands.

User avatar #89 to #86 - neznanc **User deleted account** (04/05/2014) [-]
I'm not American and since in my country there is only few people with registered guns and getting gun license is very hard, there are no armed crimes or shooting rampages here. Last time someone died by fire arms here, was about a year ago and he was commiting suicide. So anyway, majority of people here, incuding myself, don't want fire weapons in my country.
User avatar #95 to #89 - niggernazi (04/05/2014) [-]
well we also have a hard time getting weapon license here but there are killings in the multiculti ghettos everyday. atleast those useless ******* scum kill eachother and not hard working swedes, who actually have some sort of value

It's same here with some immigrants from ex-yugoslavia and albanians. But this violence mostly stays inside of their communities/gangs and doesn't concern other Slovenes unless they try really try to provoke them (these are mostly neo-nazis).
