So the link you have to subscribe to see goes live, while these other gems go untouched? What a wonderful world we live in.

Happy 4th!

Here, don't say I never did nothin' for you.
No farting, please

HONG KONG - A primary school in China is fining pupils five yuan each time they fart in class, a news report said on Friday.

Hu Zhuang Elementary School in Beijing has begun imposing the fines as part of a crackdown on bad hygiene habits in the wake of the Sars outbreak, according to the South China Morning Post.

No one has been fined so far at the school which has also introduced rules banning pupils from dropping litter or coughing without covering their mouths. - Sapa-DPA

I really worry about what happens to the little kids that pee their pants.

My gym teacher just made us do thirty pushups and four laps of the track. That's much worse, in my opinion.

Hytes Xian -

It's China. What do you think? Execution or caning.

Isn't public farting in Asia kind of a norm?
 
2003-07-04 07:06:19 PM  
In the US they would get sued. Some parent would fine a way to claim their kids constitutional right to "free expression" is being violated.

I farted in English class once in my freshmen year. We were having silent reading (drawing on the desk for me)and I accidentally farted. REALLY LOUD. Everyone's head turned around at the exactly same time, and one of the preppy biatches says, "Oh, I would be so embarrassed to be HER right now!" I was called the bulemic farter for the rest of the year. (I had thrown up in gym the previous month.) That is true punishment.

2003-07-04 07:09:52 PM  
Well, that's pretty anal.
 
2003-07-04 07:10:37 PM  
Let's not forget the silent ones.
 
2003-07-04 07:12:35 PM  
It's Not News, It's...

well, you know...
 
2003-07-04 07:13:45 PM  
Why are they being fined? Can you get SARS from a fart?

And are they expected to hold their farts? Or just not fart?
 
2003-07-04 07:15:35 PM  
Yes, what do they do about the silent but deadly ones?
 
2003-07-04 07:15:50 PM  
They might not give you SARS, but they can still kill you.



Bad movie, cool aliens.
 
2003-07-04 07:16:01 PM  
fine the first person to say "wasn't me!!"
they're always the guilty one.

You should have just farted on the preppy girl.

somehow I just KNEW South Park would have a relevant moment
 
2003-07-04 07:19:17 PM

2003-07-04 07:21:57 PM  
I wish I knew where that damn preppy girl was right at this minute. I'd go piss on her.
 
2003-07-04 07:22:07 PM  
Those poor kids! What kind of incentive do they have to tattle on their classmates? Can you imagine the pointing going on when someone smells something noxious?

An ex of mine thought he was alone at an ATM and cut a really loud/smelly one and turned around to leave and there was someone standing right behind him.

The horror!
 
2003-07-04 07:27:02 PM  
I wish they had done that when I was a kid... I would have eaten cabbage and beans before school every day and give the teacher a dollar bill at the begining of class and go to town.
 
2003-07-04 07:32:46 PM  
I have no trouble getting to the full link, and I have no subcription... this is not the first time I have noticed this.
 
2003-07-04 07:32:48 PM  
So? One time in noon detention, some kid sitting in one of those "booth" desks was sleeping pretty solid. All of a sudden, he let out the loudest, wettest fart in the history of man kind. Despite every laughing their collective asses off, the poor kid didn't wake up.
 
2003-07-04 07:35:34 PM  
Whats the point of having money if you can't enjoy spending it.
 
2003-07-04 07:38:39 PM  
Thankfully, shiatting your pants and barfing on your desk are still free!

/wonders if bukkakke is fined in the upper grades...

Sometimes my best friend makes my boyfriend do so many push ups that he throws up.

/get it?

My cousin got suspended for farting in high school once. They called my aunt in, she was pretty pissed. She said that you shouldnt get in trouble for a bodily function, the principal replied "a bodily function doesnt involve grabbing the chair and making it squeal". It seems my cousin calls it a "Screaming Eagle".

Hehe FeistyAlgal... I had a friend who was shopping in a grocers, and some woman who he had not seen in a while came up behind him and kind of poked him with her index fingers above the hips, squeezing him... she forced out a loud fart.
He turned around, embarrassed, but she was off... just as embarrassed.
 
2003-07-04 07:49:18 PM  
Hytes, what is it with you and piss all of a sudden?
 
2003-07-04 07:56:19 PM  
They had better be careful on the fart front, or parents will be demanding that the schools feed their kids.
 
2003-07-04 07:57:19 PM  
you smelt it, you dealt it.
you denied it, you supplied it.

GuardianJDK- I'm still laughing as im typing this... Thats classic.

School has hit on winning formula....

phase 1 - Serve Beans in school canteen
phase 2 - Make rule no fartee in school
phase 3 - PROFIT!!!
 
2003-07-04 08:08:02 PM  
Well, that stinks.
 
2003-07-04 08:11:55 PM  
One of my friends is this nice girl, pretty damn hot. Except she has no shame when it comes to farting, she does it in front of people all the time, at parties, wherever. We were at a party and some guy that had heard about her came up and said that any girl that did that near him could forget about anything happening between them, she went up and farted right on him...
 
2003-07-04 08:19:01 PM  
No farting? That could lead to excessive gas buildup in the bowel which could cause a major medical emergency. I smell a lawsuit coming.

True story: When I was in college, a student sitting on a bench outside was issued a ticket by the campus police for pollution after they heard him fart. I swear to god I am not making that up. Eventually the charge got dropped, but Jesus, was it a slow day for the rent-a-cops or what?
 
2003-07-04 08:36:22 PM  
Must have small classes over there. I can remember so many kids in my grade school class that sat right by me so if someone ripped one the teacher would be hard pressed to locate the exact source. In my case, I ripped 'em silent and deadly an even bigger threat!
 
2003-07-04 08:42:34 PM  
But won't this lead to an increase in human spotaneous combustion, like they said on South Park?
 
2003-07-04 09:02:27 PM  
How silly. It's better out tham in...they'll have classrooms full of kids with bellyaches next...

BTW why do silent bottom-burps smell worse than loud ones?
 
2003-07-04 09:02:43 PM  
Sounds like a plan.. )
 
2003-07-04 09:11:14 PM  
Carnivore farts stink like nothing else.
 
2003-07-04 09:37:57 PM  
Cannibal farts are teh worst, though.
