http://www.yorkdispatch.com/breaking/ci_25593535/central-york-student-suspended-asking-miss-america-prom

Apparently at Central York High School, asking Miss America to the prom is worth a 3.5 day suspension...
Full story: Senior plans to ask Ms. America on date at upcoming school assembly. Story spreads like wildfire through school. Administration hears about it. Principal tells Senior just before the assembly not to do so as it'd be 'inappropriate'. Student does so anyway.

If you knowingly stick your wang in a wringer, expect some pain. Still, 3 1/2 days seems excessive.

I really want St. Louis to win their series.  I fear the Kings are toast and won't last long.

Afraid of being sniped this June?


Actually, no, I think the Blues are a very good team who hasn't sniffed the Cup in far too long.  I'd be thrilled to make it to the finals no matter who we would play.  Smiley

When and how bad does Fleury meltdown this year, Uncle Gramps?

At any time, and probably bad.   They trust him so much Vokoun is back on the regular roster.  I do think we'll get by Columbus.  We were 5-0 against them in the regular season.

If he does, it's curtains for Bylsma as head coach.

Yep. RIP

I wouldn't.  I mean... they run away with a playoff spot every year.  Where have you seen the Caps ever since they panicked and fired Boudreau, who has only gone on to turn the Ducks from a last place team when he got there to a 1st place Cup contender.  How the hell do you blame him for a goalie absolutely falling off a cliff.  I mean... the pucks Fleury was letting in last year were pitiful.  An obvious case of a player completely losing his head out there.  

This, I could MUCH sooner see us replace Fleury before Bylsma.

BTW, George, the wife and I are in town and going to the Rochester Inn to see the game if you wanna meet up there in about 90 minutes. Cheesy

EDIT: Or maybe the Franklin Inn about 3 miles up Rochester. Call me if you're interested in hooking up.

I download it myself.

I write a check once a month to the guy who cuts it......unlike Torie, I don't employ browns, mostly because no browns have offered.

And there aren't too many in the North Hills yet who can offer, George. Wink

Firstly, God Bless Mrs. Badger.....handling the minions along with her BIG bratty kid, and the yard along with the rest of life....amazing woman.

A-freaking-men to that, brother! Grin
Quote

And yes, good Badg, the North Hills is not very welcoming to browns.  I remember this past winter I'm out warming cars up and the LAW was cruising through the neighborhood because they had a report of two browns in a pickup driving slowly through my plan.  When the officer inquired if I'd seen them, I said, yes, every day.  An old man drives his wife to one of the houses here and she apparently cares for an elderly lady there.  He was suprised they weren't up to anything nefarious, as were the busybodies that called the cops, apparently.  But he was dead set on getting to the bottom of the pickup with the browns in it.  Welcoming, eh?  Smiley

That's sad to hear. I'm a little surprised. The North Hills I thought wasn't quite so lilly-white as 20-30 years ago that it wouldn't be THAT bad at the thought of browns moving in.

Or is the area still not receptive towards ANY people of color coming around (other than maybe people who take the bus from the North Side to work at Ross Park Mall)? Sad

16  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Petition to ban Krazen on: April 18, 2014, 10:10:19 am
Comparing the rhetoric of some teenage Marxist morons to krazen is ridiculous. The difference is what krazen gets so happy about actually happens.

Krazen loves it and takes glee in stories about teachers being laid off or having their benefits cut. He actually likes seeing peoples' lives ruined or greatly worsened just for being teachers or federal workers. And he also got pretty giddy about food stamps cuts and unemployment benefits expiring, basically he wants "moochers" and their kids to be almost starving, which actually occurs.

Holding some delusional fantasy about a glorious proletariat revolution that exists only in the imaginations of stupid teenagers on the internet is hardly the same thing.

This is totally correct, says this blue avatar.

That said, he sometimes posts things of consequence, and keeps this place from being a left-wing echo chamber.

THAT said, his ratio of worthwhile posting to blatant trolling just to piss people off has declined in recent weeks. If it stays this consistent, I'd be okay with showing him the door.

Juicy details?

Decided to explain to a group of people (including the girl I'm into), with maps, about my theory about Flight 370 and where I was from.

In all fairness nobody was sober, but it's safe to say I made sh*tting the bed look like an Olympic sport

Hell, the first question was silly and didn't have the correct answer as an option....the correct answer being explaining to the old lady how cats work.  Anybody that would climb a tree for a strangers cat isn't nice, they're stupid.




(unless the cat is stuck or injured of course...but the odds of that are stupidly small and even then the best bet isn't for YOU to climb the tree and get the cat, a professional should be called...and no NOT the fire department...stupid TV shows)

You know who else would say that? A lawful evil person.

Also, what is it with you guys and being "lawful"?  I mean wow, do some of you actually PAY for music or not smoke pot occasionally?  How lameo.

I don't think that's necessarily what lawful means in this context. It has more to do with a preference for order and routine.

I totally disagree. This is an (internet) test on philisophical outlook, not a personality test. Someone who acts erratic and spazzy can absolutely have lawful good outlook on life.

You are 66.7% Good.
You are 25.6% Lawful.
Alignment: Neutral Good

      You do the best good that a person could be expected to do. You are devoted to helping others. You are willing to work with authority figures, but you do not feel any particular allegiance to them.
      You are the stereotypical “Benefactor.” You believe in doing good without any particular bias for or against order.
      Examples of charactersand people who fit into the same alignment as you include Mother Theresa, Ghandi, Gandalf, Indiana Jones, O-Bi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, Frodo Baggins, and the Dalai Lama.

Exactly the same category, but 36.1% Good and 17.9% Lawful.

Compared to Scott I'm apparently "Neutral Good Lite". Wink

Great thread for those of us who sadly know off by heart how many hit dice a Chimera has. Tongue

But hey, being drunk is not a get out of jail free card.

Stop being a lawyer for a moment and just be human!

That would be like asking me to stop being gay. It's hard wiring man, an irresistible impulse if you will, and if you saw that great movie with Jimmy Stewart as the criminal defense lawyer (he typically spent his days fishing, but finally landed himself a client), with George C. Scott as the prosecutor, the rabbit Jimmy pulled out of the hat for his client accused of murder, was the defense of irresistible impulse. (Of course, it turned out that Jimmy was stiffed on is legal fees, when his found not guilty client split immediately after being found not guilty.) There actually was a case to that effect in Michigan, and the screen play for that movie, or the book from which it sprang, was written by a Michigan judge. So I rest my case. I have my defense. Thanks. Smiley

In fairness George, this is largely true. Tongue
