You know what: FARK THAT!

I would've enjoyed Prom a lot more if I had been wasted... or if I'd had a date.

Well, this sounds like the perfect recipe for a pathetic prom. I'm guessing everyone will just leave earlier and go get drunk in hotel rooms and have lots of sex anyway.
2003-03-24 12:41:59 AM  
That's absurd. If my school had done that I wouldn't have gone. Now I don't think drunk students should be allowed in. What my school did was have a greeting line type thing where you are supposed to greet the teachers/chaperones/faculty/whatever whoare there at the time and introduce your date. If you're drunk enough to cause a negative atmosphere it's going to be kind of hard to do meet and greet without tipping someone off. I think that way is better mainly for two reasons, it is less intrusive, and it doesn't treat the students like common criminals.

I was only at prom long enough to wait in line and get a picture that no one will ever care about 2 years later. Go sober, drink later.
2003-03-24 01:30:19 AM  
Like I actually went to the overrated prom. I went to parties and got laid instead.
2003-03-24 07:07:53 AM  
I was to ugly to go to prom 8-(
2003-03-24 07:09:03 AM  
If I remember correctly our high school, also in Michigan, threatened to do the same thing. They never did. Also I do know if you swig some mouth wash before the breathalizer it will register you so high on there that you should be dead.

I remember that from drivers ed when the police brought some scope and the breathalizer to show how it works. Also stated that if anyone has some candy or something in their mouth when they get pulled over they have to wait ten minutes because of this very thing.
2003-03-24 07:09:30 AM  
my fonts became small....I thought it was talking about porn....I was let down. definatly hard to get turned on by
2003-03-24 07:09:36 AM  
The friggin teachers were on strike when I was supposed to have my prom. It was considered "Extra Curricular" so they passed on it, much like Gym Class and Music Class.. Yay for Ontario teachers!
2003-03-24 07:10:29 AM  
lame ass. let the damn kids have their fun.
2003-03-24 07:12:11 AM  
So can we get a Michigan tag yet? It seems that more and more stupid things are being reported here.

In other words, Duke sucks.
2003-03-24 07:12:28 AM  
proms are so overrated. I ditched mine and went to an Overkill concert. Instead of dancing I went stage diving. That was my prom night......good times.
2003-03-24 07:13:01 AM  
Anything that annoys teenagers is OK by me
2003-03-24 07:13:16 AM  
I farking hate adults that try to prevent their kids from doing the exact same farking thing they did when they were kids.
2003-03-24 07:13:49 AM  
I, too was :
Ready For The Pr0n.

Now I should prolly pull my pants back up.
2003-03-24 07:14:27 AM  
A better reason to spike the punch than I have never heard.
2003-03-24 07:15:44 AM  
Well, they want the best for their children IE not be turned into a zombie by having a noisy flesh bag AKA "a baby".
2003-03-24 07:16:11 AM  
I went to my senior dinner dance/awards night wasted off three airline cognacs and some gulps of vodka. Jesus I got drunk as funk. I'm usually a very reserved guy and supposedly I was jumping all around saying hi to everyone, mumbling things to myself, cursing out my family and other people and I finally sat for about 30 minutes quietly staring at the floor conveniently at the same time when the awards were given out. Then I threw up and splattered a little on my girlfriends foot. Luckily this teacher looked out for me and got me and my other friend out of the place before we got in trouble with any higher ups.

Funniest thing I remember was when my friend and my girlfriend were taking me to a friends house to sober up I stopped suddenly and said I had to pray. Now I'm a Catholic but not entirely devout and it was a friday and my friend had invited me to the mosque so I dunno but I suddenly got down and started performing the movements for prayer in a mosque...

yeah that was a weird night.
i haven't touched alcohol since.
2003-03-24 07:19:21 AM  
Illegal use of the word 'prom'... it should have been pr0n.

2003-03-24 07:21:10 AM  
My prom sucked. My retarded preppie friends on the organizing committee set the whole thing up the way they wanted it and the rest of the school had no input. This included things like the DJ's playlist (I mean our last dance was "Smells Like Teen Spirit" for Jebus sake!) and, well everything. I remember little about it, especially since I had no date and for some reason thought that mattered.

Oh, right, the story... Breathalyzer = good idea but tacky and demeaning. Though the kids must be used to being treated like imnates by now. They'd better make sure they tell all the kids you can't fake it, and you can't avoid it, so nobody gets turned away. As a deterrent it just might work - i.e. the drinking will happen AFTER, just like at my prom.
2003-03-24 07:23:35 AM  
The double entendre in the headline is CLASSSSS!
2003-03-24 07:23:47 AM  
Drinking is cool.
All the other kids are doing it.
2003-03-24 07:24:21 AM  
Oh, ferchrissakes, don't take their alcohol away! That's about the only thing that makes life in northern Michigan tolerable. It can be miserable... there are generally only two seasons in northern Michigan: arctic tundra season, and mosquito season.

Besides, a nice alcohol soak might slow down some hapless sperm.
2003-03-24 07:32:17 AM  
in indiana this was standard at all my high school dances.
2003-03-24 07:32:22 AM  
No mention of thong checks. "Breathe into this, and then raise your dress."
2003-03-24 07:33:41 AM  
Big deal, my school did this 10 years ago. Though there wasn't a vote on it, the asshole principal just did it.
2003-03-24 07:38:50 AM  
My only knowledge of American high schools is through news stories, but i get the impression that they are being turned in to joyless conform-o-bot factories (stuff like this, anything interesting being stopped because of law-suit risks and so on). It seems that whoever is in charge of schools over there was really picked on as a kid, and is getting his own back big time.
2003-03-24 07:45:29 AM  
The ACLU is going to be all over this...
2003-03-24 07:46:26 AM  
Well I guess the kids will have to settle with Ny-Quil and Robotussin.
2003-03-24 07:48:24 AM  
Funny, I said the same thing as the headline to my girlfriend before we went.
2003-03-24 08:17:37 AM  
"Funny, I said the same thing as the headline to my girlfriend before we went."

Kudos Paladin84. It took a lot longer than I thought it would for someone to state that.
2003-03-24 08:21:15 AM  
What a horrible invasion of privacy. Public high schools are looking more like federal prisons every day. There needs to be a few more rational people elected to school boards.
2003-03-24 08:21:53 AM  
WTF??? Man, if they did that at my school we wouldn't have had a prom. We were all drunks!! Next thing ya know they will be asking for urine samples!
2003-03-24 08:28:30 AM  
actually Lunasol.. the highschool i graduated from now requires a piss sample at the start of the semesters, and random drug tests thru the year to use their parking lot.

what does a parking lot have to do with civil liberties? damned if i know....
2003-03-24 08:36:42 AM  
Suck, damnit, blow is just an expression.
2003-03-24 08:38:58 AM

And not before time. Any student with the temerity to arrive in an inappropriate condition, i.e sober, should be refused admission.
2003-03-24 08:41:36 AM  
I don't think this is a choice I would like made at my high school, but, c'mon, how is that a 'horrible invasion of privacy', futureman?

Seriously, how?
2003-03-24 08:43:33 AM  
I remember kids getting thrown out of our hs dances for drinking. Always seemed odd, considering the fact that the principal and vice principal were always drunk when they were throwing them out....
2003-03-24 08:45:01 AM  
Submitter must be a high school senior, because only one of those would think this is

. This is actually a good thing. We have to protect the young, dumb, and full of come from themselves.
2003-03-24 08:46:42 AM  

ya... i do have knowledge of american high schools - and that pretty much sums it up
2003-03-24 08:57:17 AM  
Helpdeskman, Lets not start bashing Michigan!
2003-03-24 08:59:04 AM  

not a bad thing - it's the way it's being done- and the lack of respect for the kids - high schoolers are treated like criminals to be watched, like sheep to be herded

it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to stop every car driving around on friday and saturday nights and administer breathalizer tests to the drivers - perhaps not feasable - but probably a good idea - we have to protect the slightly older, dumb and full of come too

it wouldn't be that inconvenient really - yet.. somehow - it would just be demeaning - and would wear on you - and eventually you wouldn't have any respect for the cops and would get pissed at the cops who were forcing the tests - and then you'd be less likely to listen to them when they were directing traffic .. uhh...
/slippery slope off topic rant

administrators can't expect respect from people whom they don't respect - and if kids don't respect their teachers and administrators - that is rather scary
2003-03-24 09:00:11 AM  
Wait, I ws supposed to get laid at my prom?
2003-03-24 09:05:29 AM  
Well, apparently they're doing random breath tests on people at my prom this saturday... i wouldn't have even known if it hadn't been for this article, because as i angrily announced the CL violations, someone next to me stated "hey, they're doing that for our prom..." dammit, i would have been farked... anyone know of a way to get around it, other than resorting to other means (i.e. - smoking herb but having the ability to cover it up with gum)... I heard if you suck on a penny for like 10 minutes before taking a breath test, it farks it up...
2003-03-24 09:08:42 AM  
Spiked punch will be makin' a comeback!
2003-03-24 09:15:51 AM  
Well its a good thing breath tests dont pick up pot and pain killers.
2003-03-24 09:24:19 AM  
What the fark?

Gee, I guess no one's gonna go out and get drunk AFTER prom or anything.
2003-03-24 09:36:56 AM  
What's a prom?
Is it that dance that all the boorish, vapid, "popular" kids go to in an attempt to lend some sort of meaning to their worthless highshool experience?

For some reason I must have missed mine. I guess I was too busy getting drunk at a Slayer concert.

Oh well, my loss.

BTW: Northen Michigan is one of my favorite places in the world. Seriously.
2003-03-24 09:43:06 AM  
Isn't it funny that the government has to get a warrant to search your property, but does not think it needs one to give you a random breathalizer or drug test!
