    I don't have any issues with a dress code and encourage one. I went to a private school with a pretty strict dress code. You had to wear slacks, button downs, and school logoed polo's in the summer. I went to an all boys school and there were limits on piercings and hair length. You also were required to wear a belt and not allowed to wear gym shoes or sandals. You had to wear I guess business causal shoes. I never thought it was a big deal. Even my grade school had a dress code which was less stringent but you also had to follow it.

    But then you have issues arise like when my brother was threatened at lunch that if he came out for recess some kid and his friends were going to beat him up. So my brother took a spork from lunch out to recess with him and when the kid got in his face, my brother stabbed him in the face a bunch of times with it. What if my crazy brother had a butter knife instead of a plastic fork?

    Sure, not everyone is crazy like the 5th grade version of my brother, but some of them are, especially under stress and fear.

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    Ha. That would have been one tough/crazy bully if he had. My brother was a bit crazy until he was about 16. Glad he calmed it down, he is a big dude now and could truly hurt someone if he wanted to.

    Theres 2 different distincts in knives in my opinion. By butter knife I mean the knives with the rounded edges (or look like mini spatula) that cant cut anything (beyond bread) if your life depended on it. My definition of a butter knife would have cause blunt trauma but not likely to penetrate any deeper because theyre not made for it.

    Examples of Butter knifes



    Sorry about the size if anyone can feel free to edit them.

    Any knife, regardless of whether it's sharp or blunt, can penetrate the skin if enough force is applied to it.

    It's silly that there are so many Straight-A students. It doesn't mean anything anymore.
