"I carried a pocket knife most days in high school."

I carried one from about 5th grade on. Most of the other boys did too. Never occurred to us to kill someone with it. It was a tool.

Take an aspirin for a headache? That's an expulsion.
Point your finger at someone? Expulsion.
Plastic butter knife in your sack lunch? You guessed it... don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

I think America hit the peak of the intelligence bell curve sometime in the late 70s, and now it's a greased bobsled ride to Hell.

We've become a nation of knee-jerk paranoid morons who would rather kick our kids out of school for taking a Tylenol or having a little plastic green Army man in their pocket than teach them there are penalties for being a criminal.

The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.

Considering the schools in TFA, im not surprised. Those are thug schools and anyone with an IQ over 80 open enrolls in other districts, the DM district is shiat.

We've always been a nation of knee-jerk paranoid morons. Now we just have more to be knee-jerk paranoid about and faster.

/But hey, we have access to porn, so let's call it even.

Same here. I needed it every day for forestry judging practice.


Me too, but the paranoia meter has been ratcheted up to 11 these days.

EngineerAU: All the feet are showing up on Canadian beaches, which is weird since they use the metric system.
