I’ve been watching re-runs of the show Survivor China and I couldn’t help but think about how I hate the practice of schoolyard picking. Schoolyard picking refers to the practice of having two or more team leaders pick out their team members from a line of their peers. No matter what you say, there will always be one who will be picked last. All too often, the one who gets picked last. Many times, the one who gets picked last are those who are overweight, less competent in the activity, or simply put, less socially acceptable because of whatever reason. It isn’t a nice feeling. I prefer using techniques such as counting off or random selections for groupings. I feel it’s more fair. What do you think???
