Reminds me of Epic Beard Guy. Can we hire him instead? We can call for an amberlamps for some of these bullies...

Oh great! New life for the "Scared Straight" nonsense.

That is the funniest. I mean even when they have some fat black convict maniac, you know they can't actually do anything to you or they're adding time to their sentence. Let em scream. They're locked up.

"The kids love him"... Uh, isn't that the opposite of what they are trying to do? I give credit to the guy; he found a way to make a cash grab looking how he does.
 
2012-04-01 08:55:13 AM
I agree. Bullies suck.

/They could have stopped the video about 2 minutes earlier and gave the other principle his own spot on connecting with kids. It does not have to be one or the other.

A society addicted to mindless spectacle using mindless spectacle to solve real problems in a failing education system: seems right.

I hope the childrens ask him who molested him when he was child. I mean, thats the only reason to destroy ones face like that, obliterate awful images of the past...right?

much better use of our tax dollars than hiring an anti-abortion christian rock group

if we didn't have bullies we wouldn't have the social architecture of 'the strongest survive'. the meanest scumbags wouldn't be at the top.
 
2012-04-01 09:31:02 AM
In other words, a presentation that SCREAMS "Look how badass bullies are!"

This is so unbelievably stupid I can't get my heard around it. It's on a par with those anti-drug commercials that feature cool color graphics and talking dogs.

Agreed. If we didn't have bullies we wouldn't have frat boys. If we didn't have frat boys we wouldn't have wall street bankers. Just think of how sad society would be without them.

The headline made me think this was going to be a story about Joe Lieberman.

Scary, as he likes to be called, delivers a shock-and-awe approach. Speaking before a packed auditorium of schoolchildren in Austin, Minnesota, he barfs up apples, groans and rubs his ink-stained belly and intentionally pokes fun at the shortest middle-schooler, the bald PE teacher and the "geek in the wheelchair." He explains he's demonstrating classic bullying behavior to make kids aware of the problem.

He does what now?

WSJ says the bullying epidemic is a bunch of BS. Some kind of scam or something. Link (new window)

stupid WSJ. Whatever, you can google it.

From his website "The Scary Guy is quite possibly The Most Powerful Agent For Change on the Planet Today!"

Cool! Lets send him over to the middle east so he can solve THAT problem.

The only thing that scares me is that gullible administrators are willing to hire this charlatan and that they use federal funds to do it.

Obviously this is an April's Fool joke.

I learned on Fark that people with facial tattoos will never get a job.

Any school that puts this guy in front of children is VERY STUPID.

There will be no good come of what he is doing.
 
2012-04-01 10:56:53 AM
Hrm, he apparently graduated cum laudefrom the Professional Wrestler Institute of Public Speaking.

This guy came to my high school. He stood around for maybe two hours yelling and telling us urban legends. One of his stories was about how some D&D players had gone out to the woods, cut off a girl's head, stuck it in the freezer, and drank her blood out of chalices. I always wondered how he thought that was supposed to help people not get bullied. Even at the time I thought he was just another moron who had stumbled into a way to make money for no work.

Does he live in a van down by the river?
 
2012-04-01 12:09:37 PM
I don't see the problem. Sure his shtick is sort of asinine, but kids are dumb. If they pay attention and maybe take some of it to heart, who cares?

Hehe, that was the rumor as well back in the 80's. Glad to see it's still humming along.

For me, that part of the act alone would be worth the price of admission. Provided that said apples are still whole.

The only way to stop bullying is to encourage the victims to fight back. That's it.

oryx: The only thing that scares me is that gullible administrators are willing to hire this charlatan and that they use federal funds to do it.


Absolutely - this makes little sense to me.

justoneznot: The only way to stop bullying is to encourage teach the victims to fight back. That's it.


It's not enough to encourage them - without teaching people how to handle such situations, without providing a graduated path for response, you get suicides for the powerless and homicides from the angry.

There are lots of ways of handling some situations. And, sometimes, handling the situation involves stepping up and punching the shiat out of said bully. "Empowerment" isn't just a buzzword - sometimes, you have to teach someone what they are capable of doing.

CSB anecdote:
Long, long ago, my dojang used to teach rape prevention courses. The old "unbendable arm" bit was one of the ways in which women learned that they were a hell of a lot stronger than they realized - sure, it's a simple trick, but you'd be surprised how easily that trick made women receptive to the idea of actually fighting back. Sometimes, just showing someone something new about themselves can be enough to tip the scales.

Funny thing, I'm met the Scary Guy when I lived in Tucson, and he's actually really nice guy. It's really weird seeing him do this kind of thing because I know how sweet he is.

I kind of imagine a bluto-esque scene where he blows a mouth full of apples over some poor kid. Not sure though. Still seems like a terrible idea to hire this guy. His tattoos kinda suck too.

Cut off a girl's head??? I guess they rolled a 6 then?
