This is part of the same mentality that can shut down a major city with a lite brite.
This is why I have a hard time calling us "the home of the brave."

The school got worried when students were overheard saying they were going to play 'duck hunt' which they took as an obvious euphemism for an on-campus shooting

Yet another example of how we killed Bin Laden and his organization and still lost the war on terror.

These are the same people who will end up being our politicians and HOA administrators. Busybodies with nothing better to do than tell other people what they can think or do.

I think this has more to do with the Batman guy

When I was in college I used to post the names and dates of porn stars who had birthdays that week onto my dorm room door. I was forced to stop it because the Jehovas Witness student complained about the porn star list. No pics, just names and birthdays.

Simple solution, find out who made the decision, publish their names and ridicule them openly, loudly and often. People that stupid shouldn't be employed by a center of learning.

The "Sweeney Todd" poster was worse. The guy on it was brandishing a dangerous weapon.

What does that have to do with anything? This happened at a Canadian university.

I saw "SMU" and thought "Most of the people at SMU already have concealed carry permits."

Then I realized it was a different SMU. Not the one getting the George Bush presidential bookshelf.

Check out the posters on the board behind her.

There's a flyer for a karate club. Hamlet, holding a skull. And Sweeney Todd wielding a straight razor.

But a stupid Nintento light gun is right out.

And yet the saddest part of this story is that you keep up with porn star birthdays.

Probably should have been Students from over 100 countries around the world.

The gaming group has put up a revamped version of the event poster, replacing the Zapper with a Power Glove, which looks like a large glove with a small keyboard on it.

"I never thought we were being muted or anything. I was just, I want to get the event done and over with because it's a lot of logistical stress that I don't need, man. Like, I was all, you know, like, it's cool and all. It's just, like, another, like thing on my plate and I. like, like, like, guns. You know?"

Whodat: Simple solution, find out who made the decision, publish their names and ridicule them openly, loudly and often. People that stupid shouldn't be employed by a center of learning.


It was the student's association, so basically the elected student government of the University. Still clearly dumb as bricks though.

SMU sucks. All the people feel they are above going to Dalhousie go there.

It's amazing how much American's will spend to go a university to learn how to be a pussy.

I think we are still the home of the brave. We are also home of the quite majority who recognizes a toy gun and doesn't bother each other with nonsense and loud cowardly minority. It probably wasn't hundreds of complainers, but ONE jackass who saw the zapper and complained.

So, at what age does society stop treating adults like they're third graders? Inquiring minds and all that. . .
