BronyMedic: doglover: I liked many of my high school speakers, but the anti- people make me physically ill. When they're not lying, they're exagerating and skewing numbers.DARE people were the worst. They even knew the stuff they were teaching was blatant, fear mongering lies, and that was the hardest thing ever to swallow about the whole thing. Make drugs out to be the worst things ever so kids won't touch them was the tactic, and it failed so miserably it wasn't even funny.I think the breaking point for me was in 10th grade, going through a DARE Trailer for the Tennessee Highway Patrol and seeing Weed put up in the same class as Crystal Meth in harm.
thisisarepeat: I got an "OUIL" in the late 90's in Michigan.I was 19, it was about 4:00am and foggy as I have ever seen, my vehicle was parked, my blood alcohol level was 0.02 (thats a DUI for anybody under 21) and some stupid fat biatch barreled into it at around 50 mph and farked up her knees, as well as totaling both of our vehicles. She sued my parents for $60,000. SO fark ALL OF YOU MADD MOTHERfarkERS, DIAF!!!! I'm glad your families died because you pieces of shiat deserve it .
invictus2: What do you mean!? He must of not told you in the assembly of the mystical time traveling fog, that forced him to slay the dragon.[blogs.westword.com image 550x843]
Cornelius Dribble: Read the article and missed the part about running off in tears. Can somebody enlighten me?
Ed_Severson: I had to sit through some unimaginably stupid motivational talk from Billy Ray Cyrus when I was in high school. Afterwards, in my English class, we were required to write an essay about what we had learned during the assembly.I wrote about how clear it was that the school board didn't understand how to motivate people.
PiffMan420: pedrop357: 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.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.
