    I was more distracted with shorts, mini-skirts, and tank tops than I was with a girls hair color...

    It's pretty laughable how uptight some people can be about the way kids dress or style themselves. And I agree with what everyone said about teenagers always being distracted. My friend just found some old letters from when she was twelve and couldn't believe that she and her friends could have thought so much about so many boys. In fact they don't even have to be present in the classroom, I'm sure I spent many school hours daydreaming about Keanu Reeves(lame, I know, but I was only 14) while I should have been thinking about algebra.

    And never kid about a topic as serious as mattress tags. I accidently tore one off when I was a kid and lived in mortal fear that the Mattress Tag Police were going to come get me. They were in cahoots with the Library Police.

    I wasn't kidding and it's good to know that that stupid myth book got something right.

    That thing made an idiot of me (not that I needed any help) in high school one day. Someone was talking about seeing lightning come down from the sky and I told them- based on my book- that lightning only strikes from the ground up. A few science books later and I now realize lightning can strike from the ground up, the sky down, and cloud to cloud.

    Let's face it. When it comes to girls, boys can be distracted by just about anything. If you've ever gone to a Catholic school, you know that even plaid uniforms and saddle shoes can be highly distracting.

    Here I am hoping my kids make it through adolescence and the early 20s without a teenage pregnancy, or being hooked on drugs, or alcoholic, not commit suicide or be killed by a stray bullet, finding an interest and going for it, and following Jesus Christ (maybe put that first), and these "educators" are worried about a few streaks, or nose rings, or tatoos, or whatever the latest fad is.

    i had almost forgotten about that. though i was in Jr. High when Columbine happened, i did get to have some fun on the first year memorial of it.

    i was called into the principal's office and told i was going to be put on a 'watch list.' apperently middle class kids with long hair and listen to metal are considered at risk despite good grades, baseball, and Science Olympiad.

    as part of the memorial, the school was going to hold a tribute/memorial/fund raising thingy for Columbine. they were holding it in the auditorium..it was going to be held after classes ended that day. i'm walking on my to go to the Jr. High to work on a couple of my Olympiad events, and from where i started in the building, i had to pass by the auditorium main doors. i'm not even looking into the auditorium, but as i passed it, one of the vice principals popped out, stopped me, and told me that it would be entirely inappropriate for one such as i to attend something like that. i told him i had no intentions of doing so and that i was on my way to the junior high for Olympiad. i walk away from him to hear him call me an 'evil callous bastard.' needless to say that didn't end well.

    i'll continue with the end of that story once the lightning passes.

    once he said that, it started a wave of profranities from me. it lasted about 5 minutes. by the end i had a crowd around me. it was probably good for him i hadn't had improv training yet. i don't remember what exactly i had said, but the administration pretty much left me alone for the rest of my freshman year after that.

    sophmore year, and the incorporation of 'the safe school hotline,' is entirely another story.

    Word on the street is that Jill Carroll's captors released her due to the streak in HER hair.

    Ok, if they did this at my school, 1/10 of people would be at in school suspension for life. Including teachers.

    Holy thread bump, Batman!
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I thought this was a current event until I noticed the posts all had "2006" by them.

    First off cases like this is why I am not teaching right now. I would get black listed for pointing out the stupidity. And the hair actually looks good I think. Its not "outrageous".

    2nd a Columbine story.

    A few friends of mine always wore long black trench coats when it got cold, not a problem. Well after Columbine we had an unseasonably cold couple days which they wore them like everyone else had some sort of jacket. I must have been stopped by at least a dozen classmates, 6 teachers, 2 administration members, and the vice principal freaking out for the simple fact they wore trench coats. Called them morons for even making that distinction and left it at that.

    Administrators don't use common sense they go to kill a fly with a nuclear warhead regardless of the case. Give me 25 minutes in a school and they will have to shut down because I will have emptied the building of everything because of the 0 tolerance for weapons policy many schools adhere to (suspending kids for bringing butter knives to school to cut their sandwhichs for example).
