I have a chunk of pencil lead in my upper arm from walking in the hallway and being stabbed by a mechanical pencil.

In 8th grade science class I was given permission by my teacher to hit my lab partner at any moment I wanted. My lab partner was a class troublemaker and no one could stand him. I never had trouble with my lab partner probably because the teacher even announced it in front of the entire class that I could beat him.

achilles_bogart: The stabber is suspended and charged with a bunch of shiat over it. Bad. Its like charging a rape victim that fought back. Just lie there and take it, someone in authority might come to help you.

He was trying to help the other guy with a math problem.

Chances are he wasn't trying to help via a rough sexing.

Unless it was a multiplication problem.

Soupysales: Aulus: In my junior year of high school, there was this kid in my biology class that kept giving me shiat, day after day. He was just this short little guy and I was a good half a foot taller, but very skinny (like 6'3" 150 lbs)...

I'll guess school reunions will be definitely off his to-do list.

Well, I might be going to mine in April. I think more than a few will be surprised.

As to the other kid, I can't even recall his name now.

Wait, the kid that was stabbed wasn't also expelled for participating in a fight? WTF? I thought zero tolerance meant screwing everybody

Oznog: Sure, it's only a pencil, but I rolled a CRITICAL STRIKE!

Confusing pen and paper D&D with LARP?

When I was in the third grade a girl stabbed me in the hand with her pencil. I can still see a dark point where there's a little bit 'o pencil lead in my hand. Farkin felons. I'm scarred for life. How soon will students in the UK have to use felt tip pens?

Oznog: Ghastly: I have a little black dot on the side of my right wrist; it's the end of a pencil lead that was thrust into my arm in the second grade with great violence and malice.

LOL I had a dot on a finger for many years, but it did eventually fade. I still have a faded mark on a toe from stepping on a pencil years back.


Pencils are dangerous tools of hatred and oppression.
Obama should ban them.

I'm willing to bet there's some prior history there. I bet you anything the stabber was a little shiathead that needed to be locked away for the good of all, and this was what they could pin on him.shiat, when I was that age there was this boy in my class who try to beat me up, keep in mind I'm a girl. I had to switch classes because of him. They should have farking sent him to juvie but they didn't, and I was the one who had to switch classes to accommodate his shiatty behavior.

Last I heard he was in prison for killing a girlfriend.

That's as may be, but from TFA, the kid in question was sitting at his desk attempting to do his work, while the other kid wouldn't leave him alone. Regardless of his past history, in this instance, he was not the aggressor.

I'll add my incredulity regarding the charges files against the student.

my only cool pencil-related injury was this -

6th grade. the pencil sharpener's metal cover was off. I was messing around with some friends and I got pushed back, I put my hand out to catch myself and it caught in the sharpening mechanism. I hand to un-crank the thing to get my hand out. fun times :D

I had a similar story to some of these pencil stabbers.

Back in middle school, one kid would punch me in the arm every day in algebra. This was very annoying. So one day I stuck my mechanical pencil with metal tip under my where he always hit me. He punched me and the tip jabbed him in the hand. That was the last time he ever did anything to me again. Believe his name was Brandon Morris....

When I was in first grade a girl stabbed me in the arm with a compass because I tried to kiss her.

edmo: I remember a kid who used to be teased mercilessly in high school. He was a nice guy and a big kid. One day, coming out of math class, he had enough from the idiot behind him. He turns around and slugs him upside the head - pencil in hand. Went clean through his cheek, plenty of blood.

No suspensions, just a talking to. Bully boy learned his lesson. And nobody grew up to be criminals either.


Reminds me of the time I attacked a classmate with a pen in the middle of class because he wouldn't leave me alone.

/got a 3-day suspension out of it
//I just have the worst temper
///cool story, bro

airsupport: When I was in first grade a girl stabbed me in the arm with a compass because I tried to kiss her.

I told you to try to snatch a kiss, boy, not...

once, I stabbed a friend, unintentionally if not accidentally, in the knee with an x-acto knife just because it was funny when he screamed like a little girl

misjudged the distance, he didn't scream at all

the next day, the spots where he had bled were the only clean spots on the floor

Oznog: ftfa: charged with felony attempted assault and misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon.

real shaman: Did they charge everyone in the class with possession of a weapon?

Well, there's a troublesome precedent there. According to "Zero Tolerance policies", anything which COULD be a weapon, IS a weapon. Which is why you can't have a screwdriver, even if you need to put in some screws. Now once you establish that a pencil CAN be a weapon, it IS a weapon- for anyone carrying it.

And the beauty is that the idiotic nature of "Zero Tolerance" is there is no tolerance. There are no exceptions. If you judged an accusation based on merits and showed tolerance of reasonable situations, it wouldn't be ZT anymore


Thanks, your post just clicked something in my mind and I was able to invent a pencil that simply collapses when used a stabby type manner, yet writes like a normal pencil. Any color you want. We're gonna save a bunch of kids, man!
