He would be about the right age...

Please define "rafters". I see he was found in the Auditorium watching the construction of scenery for the school play.

So, I assume he was in the theaters grid space. That is hardly off-limits during a load-in.

He should just sign up for the class.

That's really sad to me for some reason. Like the guy really wants to be in the class, but is too scared/too much of a creepy bastard to extend himself and join.

The tone of this article, as well as the quotes from the staff, made this keep seem like an uber-creep.
10/1 odds on him whackin' it to the sounds of construction.

I used to do something like that. Back in high school, I had taken an accelerated track with the idea of graduating early -- but changed my plans. That left me with a giant gap of empty time my senior year, so I was assigned an ad hoc "stage craft" class. Between plays, when nothing was going on, I'd often drag a bed out of the prop room, lower a few strategic scrims and curtains, gels the fresnels for atmospheric light, pipe my music tapes through the sound system ... and take a nap.

we used to climb in our school rafters all the time, but usually only to chase hacky sacks.

I picture this kid a lot like a scared little puppy who was beat by its owners and is terrified of people, but still wants to play with them too.

Of all the craziness that happens on a daily basis here in northwest Florida, this is the example greenlit. I feel so...dull.

Haha. Back in my HS gridmonkey days, we repelled into some dead space in the schools construction. It was interesting to find all the garbage the construction crew/former students threw in there.
 
2007-09-24 01:58:33 AM
hey educators, instead of suspending him why don't you just sign him up. Too simple? He's too much of a nerd to hang out with the cool kids? (cool drama kids, now there's a concept) Come on teacher, teach!

How in the heck can someone be too scared/creepy for high school drama? That's where all the scared and creepy kids hang out!

What a great comment. =)

Had a buddy in high school who did this all the time, though he was also very much PART of the drama class. During one rehearsal he climbed up into the very high rafters of the school auditorium, took off his clothes, stuffed them and tied them together into a crude dummy, and then at an appropriate moment dropped the dummy, along with a loud scream onto the stage. Scared the crap out of everybody, and many of the girls in the production were crying afterward. He was laughing his naked ass off. No arrest was made. He has had a long career in movie promotion since then.

We had a couch in yearbook. In the closet. As photo editor, I put a computer in there as well. Listened to music, as well as watched DVDs.

/that couch was older than the students

nice...and possibly effective. At my HS, wallets and jewelery were returned, but unattended food was promptly eaten.

Bring him water unto him and do not fall into others. These are the commandments of the Technoviking. Unless you are the mysterious person for whom the Technoviking is your biatch.

What's remarkable about all the Viking talk in this thread is the mascot of the high school in question is the Fort Walton Beach High School Vikings. Ya really.

OK, I was compelled to watch that video, and it was very interesting. But what the fark was it?

Also Mr. Viking litters near the end. Littering is not cool.

Now that he was suspended, he may never leave the basement for the rest of his life.

If it was a college, I'd think: Nude rehearsals! Woo-hoo!

YARLY. When I was in college, the drama department did "Hair" and their last couple rehearsals before opening night were done in full costume. In that play, there's one or two scenes where the "costume" is your birthday suit.

/didn't take drama
//watched a few rehearsals though

Had a few friends that discovered a cavity leading to the ventilation system behind one of their lockers. They'd spend their free time crawling behind the walls, the objective being to navigate a path to the girls' locker room. Nowadays, that'd be considered a sexual offence. Back then it was just damn funny.

All the guys in the group went on to become productive members of society. One is now a high school teacher. I bet karma's a biatch for him.

nativefloridian: We had a couch in yearbook. In the closet. As photo editor, I put a computer in there as well. Listened to music, as well as watched DVDs.


We had a video offshoot of the school paper. We had to put together a twenty minute broadcast episode every week. It was a fairly new endevour, so discipline and supervision was extremely low. This usually translated into one day of real shooting, a few days of half-assed roam the halls stints by people skipping class, and a whole lot of time spent next to the highschool's outdoor track, lounging on the high jump mat, watching pretty girls in PE class jog in circles. That, my friend, is total comfort.


In fact, you've inspired me. I need a used high jump mat for my living room. Some sun lamps and semi-perverse video, and I'm back to nirvana...

Not only that, but I can buy beer now. Life is truly good.

From the comments section in TFA:

I personally know the Drama Teacher at Fort Walton. There is a whole lot more to this story then you all know. The child had bee stealing wood from the drama department to build tunnels in the roof of the building and using tools to carve holes in the cove of the auditorium(which is where all the stage lights are.) He potentially caused thousands of dollars worth of damage that the school will have to pay for just because some kid thought it would be fun. While doing that he could have been seriously hurt and maybe stuck in the cove and nobody would have known. Now if I was the drama teacher, I wouldn't want that kid anywhere near me or my auditorium.

Sounds like a killer remake of "Phantom" to me. High schools never recognize their talent in hand.

That's impressive shiat, it should be chronicled in the yearbook, "tunneler of roofs", "carver of coves", suddenly the kid has a date for prom!

Ummm, folks.

As a previous drama student, I must say, he wasn't up there to watch the buildings of sets.

The rafters in ANY school are where the potheads go to smoke. It's their haven.
Or couples go to have sex.
(not the best place to have sex, trust me)

All of the Shoguns I am aware of, including perhaps the most famous, Ieyasu Tokugawa, were human.
