I read the first few words and immediately thought of bohner.

She's allegedly been doing this ten years and she got upset NOW?

This is typical kid stuff. Every single teacher puts up with this every single day.
 
2012-10-14 05:46:47 PM
What? Some kid called her "Stumpy."

What the fark do passengers and pedestrians under 21 have to do with underage drinking and driving? Way to pad those numbers.

"Alcohol related" means ANYONE involved in the accident... whether it was the driver or not.

Example: If a sober person ran over a pedestrian, and the pedestrian had ANY alcohol in their system (hospital checks for alcohol, etc before pumping you full of drugs) it is considered an "alcohol related" accident.

I hate to tell you, fellow Farkers and Farkettes, but drunk drivers on the road is a serious problem. Pretty cool she goes around telling kids not to fark up like I did.

Got a DUI in 2000 myself. The expense was bad enough but I was shocked, yes, SHOCKED, when I went through the mandatory safety classes.

Besides having to pay for them up front, we had one dude show up the first night hammered. He blew 0.32 as we are all breathalyzed when we come in. The scary part was that he was pretty much walking and talking normally. They tossed him out along with any late comers as it was like basic training mode there.

Then I had to attend a victims impact panel in the county courthouse where people who were involved in horrific DUI crashes tell their stories of injuries and dead family from drunk drivers. That night, they didn't breathalyze us but they should have. The asshat next to me smelled like a distillery.

Really, don't drink and drive. It's not worth the hassles and heartache one could cause.

My brother-in-law got a DUI, screwed up his delivery job, and he can't start his car without blowing into it. It's pretty faulty, and if it screws up, even if he is sober, automatic fine.

This is true. I work with crash data, and we have these problems all the time. It can get really confusing when you're reporting numbers like this. Actually, it usually depends on how the police officer filled out the crash report. Sometimes for alcohol related crashes, the officer doesn't even code who was drinking, so you can't separate out the pedestrians or bicyclists who were drinking when the driver was sober.

It's just a way to pad the numbers. If you hear "alcohol related", you assume it was a drunk driver.

Eh, it's hard for me to find sympathy for people like this. She farked up and endangered innocent people, but then exploits the fark up to earn a living? biatch needs to get a real job, like drumming for a hair metal band.

Do lectures like this reduce the rate of drunk driving?

Is she doing good work or just milking her tragedy for her own profit?

Meh. Teenagers being teenagers. Many of their brains haven't developed enough to really process information the way an adult does ( critical thinking & empathy ).

I'd cut them some slack.

Yes, the parents that desperately wish they were still in high school too and just want to be awesomest friends ever with their kids.

There's a seriously shortage of steely eyed take-no-shiat hardass parents out there.

So... she gets paid to go around and tell students how she farked up... and then she cries because students mocked her for how she farked up?

Maybe the 90+% of teens who DON'T drink and driver are sick of hearing sob stories, condescending lectures, and/or simplistic moralizing from any idiot the school district can get to come and talk.

I'm an adult who doesn't drive drunk and I'm sick of hearing/seeing the messages and it's not nearly as condescending, trite, simplistic, or unrealistic as that aimed at teens.

When a significant number simply don't drink, and the vast majority of those who do drink do not drive drunk, you're bound to test the limits of how much insulting time wasting lectures they're willing to take.

Put yourself in their shoes. How many assemblies like this would all of us as adults put up with? How many times would your job have to bring you to a meeting/assembly of the kind schools do before you stopped paying attention or even engaged in a little taunting? Granted, adults would be a little more tactful, but anyone paying attention would realize that the vast majority are sick of this kind of meeting and showing it to the presenter.
 
2012-10-14 11:14:05 PM
Well, as much as I applaud her intent, you have to consider your audience carefully. Dressing to accentuate your trauma before a crowd of adolescents seems foolhardy, regardless of your message. Furthermore: karma.

When I was in high school (late 70's) they bussed all of us kids to an auditorium to listen to David Toma talk about the dangers of drugs. A lot of catcalls and mocking--drugs were pretty popular back before all the Just Say No crap. But the guy didn't walk off in tears or anything. Guess kids are pretty much the same now
/Don't remember much except that we got early dismissal that day and it was nice out

Sarah Panzau has traveled the country telling teenagers about her near-fatal decision 10 years ago to drink and drive.

But if shed gone home with a dude and had sex with him, he could be charged with rape because an intoxicated person is incapable of giving consent.

No, adults can STFU and be polite.
 
2012-10-14 11:18:24 PM
While about 80 percent of the 600 or so students in the auditorium wanted to hear her story, she estimated...

Heh. Yeah they did.
 
2012-10-14 11:20:31 PM
So, according to the article, 10% of DUI deaths were South Carolinians under 21. Wolfram Alpha says that 23.7% of South Carolinians are 17 or younger. Clearly, we need to get more kids drunk to bring their numbers in line with expectations.

The assemblies with the paid hacks were the WORST. There's a good racket for "cleaned" up drunks and drug addicts doing bullshiat speaking gigs.

I remember a similar hissyfit being done by some troupe of art students doing skits about the dangers of drugs. Why the school faculty let all the kids lineup and sit with their friends was beyond me.

Easy, my child. Just two points.

1) Drug tolerance doesn't not make one sober.

2) If you can't stop doing something for a simple class (and lose over $200 to pay it again later), you probably have a real problem.

"How much did you get paid to be here? I mean you said this was 10 years ago, so i assume this isnt still part of your community service.

drunk driving in america results in light sentences for killers because your government doesn't give a goddamn about you. i applaud the police and ambulance people who somehow find the strength to pick up the broken bodies that result from drunk driving night after night. i started losing friends & loved ones to drunk driving in high school. now that i'm old most people would not believe how long that list has grown. it gives me anger and sadness that never goes away.

Because 99% of the population won't, and we know this by scientific investigation. If you want an exception to the rule when you break it, go argue it in court. Just because you think you're good to drive after downing a six pack in an hour, doesn't mean you are, and it doesn't mean you're not impaired.

And don't give me that crap about driving while texting, or driving while distracted. You should get pulled the fark over for doing that, too.

Aside from the fact that you're driving a three thousand pound missile at sixty to seventy miles an hour highway speed, and being a selfish asshole for endangering the lives of everyone around you, and the ones who will come save your ass when you wreck.

There was a bully at our high school who was a real farking jerk. I didn't get any hassle from him but I remember kids in the lower grades going home in tears because of how mean he was to them. The night before graduation he rolled his car going 160 kph and flipped it end over end. He was drunk. He lived but was basically a vegetable after that. They brought him back to school the next year to see everyone but he couldn't recognize faces or really even speak and didn't even have basic motor control. The kids he used to pick on then proceeded to throw food at him. Being a bully is one thing but I don't think I'd ever wish an outcome like that on someone, if it was karma he must have done some truly evil shiat to someone.

When I was in fifth grade we had some aerobic dance instructor come in and teach us all a bunch of dances. One thing she taught us was the Macarena. Right at the peak of the Macarena craze. After she gets through all the steps we stared booing her, but at least she had the composure to remain on stage.

Later we all had to write her an apology note.
