tboucher: bullied? How about 'was stupid'. She apparently thought that burning the candle when she wasn't there was ok and blew it out when she came to class.To me that says she's an idiot, not a 'bully'. I mean bully she'd have bought more surrounded hte kid with them or whatever. Just seems more of someone not realizing that it was that bad/being stupid vs. wanton distress.
katerbug72: Does the mother really make people call her Baldwin-Nguyen?
AbbeySomeone: TerminalEchoes: gameshowhost: In before morons claiming that the kid is faking the allergy.She might not be completely faking it but if the very smell of nuts causes allergic reactions (which I doubt), she should be living in a bubble.Scented candles and room fresheners etc can trigger allergic reactions in many people.
oryx: Is it standard practice for teachers to burn candles in class now? I went to school a long time ago, but the only thing that was lit in class was a bunsen burner.
cantsleep: Jamieboy: And why are we such pussies when it comes to odors?Jamieboy: They all give me headaches and I avoid scented products when at all possible. Even my deodorant, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent is unscented.I head assploded.
Eddie Ate Dynamite: Jamieboy: Even my deodorant, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent is unscented.Dude! Where the hell do you find all the unscented stuff? They just quit making the only shampoo I've ever found that didn't smell like flowers or perfume or lilacs on a sunny day that I thought would never end or whatever crap they're trying to kill my sense of smell with in any given bottle. fark YOU UNI-LEVER I JUST WANT SOME GOD DAMN SHAMPOO I WON'T SMELL ALL FREAKING DAY, and maybe some deodorant and a towel (detergent) that doesn't rape me olfactorily. You have to be gentle when going in the nose-hole, ya know.
Jon iz teh kewl: i'm actually gonna side with the teacher on this one. cause she looks like she's being gay for attention
gameshowhost: In before morons claiming that the kid is faking the allergy.
NephilimNexus: The solution to nut allergies is to give them nuts.
Warlordtrooper: gameshowhost: In before morons claiming that the kid is faking the allergy.I doubt anybody is claiming the allergy is a fake, the issue usually is why should the other 95% of society have to bend to the will of people with an evolutionary problem.

ComicBookGuy: I was at a con, once, and approached a table of people playing Talisman. One fellow remarked he knew I had peanuts on my because he was having an allergic reaction to them.So, yeah, this is a bad thing. I can't imagine living without peanuts.
Skirl Hutsenreiter: \Having trouble understanding why the teacher ever thought she should burn a scented candle to begin with.
FenixStorm1: For all those who enjoy the smell of nut candles, I recommend MandlesLink
Warlordtrooper: why should the other 95% of society have to bend to the will of people with an evolutionary problem.
hoover1066: A girl named "Vi"? Is her brother called "emacs"?
FuturePastNow: We really need to just let natural selection take care of people who have allergies to common food products.
2CountyFairs: A big question I have is this: If the school nurse knew what the problem was the first time, and actually did ask the teacher to stop burning the candle, how did that same nurse NOT recognize the cause and do something about it one of the next seven times it happened?
ha-ha-guy: It's failure all around here.
mod3072: opiumpoopy: H31N0US: Isn't that against a fire code or something?Only if there are flammables like paper or books in the vicinity...Not necessarily. We had a few teachers who had scented candles in their rooms, and the fire marshal about had a coronary. They weren't near anything flammable, but he made us get rid of ALL candles before we could pass our inspection.
octopied: FuturePastNow: We really need to just let natural selection take care of people who have allergies to common food products.Cute.100+ years ago, people frequently died from bad illnesses as well. And lack of running water and adequate waste facilities.And childbirth. My sister in law just had an emergency c section monday due to labor not progressing as the baby's head was turned. 100 years ago, it's unlikely either would have survived. 100 years ago, children often didn't live to adulthood.
The My Little Pony Killer: gameshowhost: In before morons claiming that the kid is faking the allergy.Unless they're actually using nut in the candles, I'm calling BS on her allergy to that.
H31N0US: Isn't that against a fire code or something?
namegoeshere: The candles are made with nut oil.
give me doughnuts: We're preventing the weak ones from dying in infancy, thus degrading the species.
Teutonic_Knight: I have a serious question.Back when I was in school, (80's and early 90's) I knew of one girl allergic to shellfish. That was it.Now that I have a son in Kindergarten, 4 kids in his class of 21 are allergic to nuts and 2 cannot have gluten, soy, dairy, or nuts. What is with the allergic action reaction?
TerminalEchoes: gameshowhost: In before morons claiming that the kid is faking the allergy.She might not be completely faking it but if the very smell of nuts causes allergic reactions (which I doubt), she should be living in a bubble.
The Face Of Oblivion: She failed the class and her mom looks like a sandblasted troll doll. Odds of the allergy being precious snowflake bullshiat are climbing by the minute...
onyxruby: Three chronic health problems were solved overnight with a single phone call. Knowingly exposing an allergic child to perfume is child abuse and she should go to prison.
Spike Lee's Favorite Farker: But even if she is why should men have to pretend that we aren't interested. We are genetically wired to be interested in women once they are fully developed, regardless of their birth date. Plus in many states she is legal so long as she isn't your student.
JackieRabbit: What is asinine about this is that candles are usually scented with artificial materials that are in no way chemically similar to the scent produced. Those really allergic to nuts (most people aren't; they are just told they are) are allergic to a protein in the meat of the nut, not the oil. If the girl was having the type of reaction the FA describes (an IgE reaction), the school nurse would be calling an ambulance, not treating her herself. So I'm calling bullshiat on the Daily Fail article. Sounds to me like mommy and daughter are trying to cash in.
octopied: A couple brands of deodorant have an unscented version and are labelled as such. Shouldn't be hard to find at most drug/grocery stores. Usually you have to buy the men's version, but whatever. Pretty sure speed stick is one brand that has an unscented,Detergent is easy. Both sunlight and tide make a version labelled "FREE"(No dyes/perfumes). As for shampoo, I can't help you there. Maybe try a lemon? I occasionally use them for a hair conditioner.
Egalitarian: Mom, my nuts![i154.photobucket.com image 500x375]\yeah I know it's a different point in the film, so sue me, I gotta get to work.
Loren: Yup. There are social reasons to avoid young but developed women but that says nothing about whether they are sexually desirable. There's nothing perverted about the reaction we are wired for. It's only what you do about it that matters.
jeffowl: Well, I guess you have to ask if it was an allergy, or an allergy-allergy. I mean, in the case of legitimate allergy the body has a way of shutting down to prevent intake of more of the allergen.
Loren: Then why did you keep allowing your mother access to your child???
SkunkWerks: Loren: Yup. There are social reasons to avoid young but developed women but that says nothing about whether they are sexually desirable. There's nothing perverted about the reaction we are wired for. It's only what you do about it that matters.Blaming your ultimate reaction on "what we're all wired to do", is for instance a really horrible place to start.In other news, she's unremarkable... at best, IMO.
