This is cool, although I'm sure the school will be banning anything and everything to do with Nutella now, just to protect the dear children themselves.,

/what kind of idiot ass kid with a nut allergy eats NUTella
 
2013-04-13 01:34:10 PM  
He's only 6 or7, tweek.  Maybe he parsed it as Nu-tella?
 
2013-04-13 01:34:55 PM  
Ironically, the Nutella was there only because peanut butter is banned. So this "safety measure" made things more dangerous, not less.

Mmhm.  After all, there are schools which have threatened to expel diabetic students for carrying glucagon kits (for giving a livesaving injection in case of a severe hypoglycemic incident).

So when Sullivan started having a bad reaction, Ransom grabbed the jar of Nutella and starting reading the ingredients. Third one in, he found what he was looking for.
"I found 'hazelnuts,'" Ransom said
.

areyoufarkingkiddingme.jpeg

That farking headline and article makes it sound like the kid stopped an outbreak of sleeping sickness.

Sullivan didn't have to go to the hospital. His mom came by the school to make sure he was OK and later that day Sullivan and Ransom were able to get together and play.

My niece was diagnosed with a nut allergy before she was 2 years old.  By the time she was 3 she knew not to eat ANYTHING unless she asked her mother or father first.  The fact this 7 year old kid saw "Nutella" and didnt think "nuts" might be a problem means he's probably not going to live to a ripe old age.

At the very latest he's going out as a "Hold my beer and watch this" blaze of glory.
 
2013-04-13 02:01:07 PM  
I like how the article lionizes the kid for BEING ABLE TO READ. He's 7. I mean, good on him for reacting appropriately, but jesus, we're a nation of idiots.

Give the kid a break. It doesn't have nut chunks in it, and it's pronounced "NU-tella," not "NUT-ella." Also, cocoa actually is a major ingredient.

At the very latest he's going out as a "Hold my beer and watch this" blaze of glory.

"Told you I was hardcore!"
 
2013-04-13 02:16:57 PM  
Of course if he'd just gone to the teacher, and said "I think my friend is having a bad reaction" without reading the jar, he wouldn't be a hero in the slightest.
 
2013-04-13 02:17:29 PM  
NUTella has NUTS?

What ever happened to names?
 
2013-04-13 02:31:28 PM  
The story stinks. If you have an allergic reaction that could be fatal, even given the proper medicine to combat it, you should still be taken to the hospital. He didn't go to the hospital and his mother came by to check on him. That means the reaction he had was not a serious one, or some adults were totally incompetent.
 
2013-04-13 02:32:08 PM  
Or he could have gone the way of our recent college aged kids, shiat himself, start eating dirt and lay down to die. I'll go with the youth of today, Ransom, Sully and the Tractor girls. Generation entitlement will fade away in a blaze of malaise as these new kids rise up all bootstrappy and make a better world.

Kid with known nut allergy gets sick at lunch.  Geez, what could be causing it?  We'd never know if not for the little hero who could read a label to determine that ohmygod it's an allergic reaction to nuts.

/no reason not to give the kid the Boy Scout Good Deed badge
//but now I want Nutella
 
2013-04-13 03:30:24 PM  
The amount of reading comprehension fail in this thread is staggering.  Apparently it was too hard to read that the kid thought there was just chocolate on the sandwich, not Nutella.
 
2013-04-13 03:33:03 PM  
Maybe I'm missing something... the boy's friend was having a bad allergic reaction, so Ransom grabbed a teacher.  And that makes him a hero?  We're really downgrading the definition of "hero" these days.

FTFA:
That day at lunch, Ransom's friend, Sullivan Moore, also 7, thought another kid's Nutella looked pretty good. So he ate some.

Ransom grabbed the jar of Nutella and starting reading the ingredients.


Sandwiches don't come in jars. And don't have a list of ingredients. And nowhere in TFA does it say that it was a sandwich. It does however say that it was a jar of Nutella. Which would have a list of ingredients. When snarking about other people's lack of reading comprehension skills, you should probably make sure you have some yourself.

Walker: In other news, Ransom Duel is like the coolest name EVER.


Cool, yes, but what does it do to the boy's life chances? I have been a firm believer in the Shandyian theory that names influence people's personalities and prejudice people's opportunities since reading Laurence Stern's eccentric post-modern before it's time novel, The Life and Opinions of Tristrem Shandy as a child (yes, as a child--it was pretty wild, weird and wonderful even then--the eponymous narrator starts out to tell his life story but fills a dense thick volume before he even gets to his own birth).

With a name like Ransom Duel, the kid will probably grow up to be a Hero, a Super-Villain, a Gentleman Adventurer or possibly a prisoner in Cell Block 7G.
 
2013-04-13 04:33:14 PM  
I always say that if by some improbable quirk of chance, I were to have a child, I would name her Miracle if a girl, and Random Event if a Boy. Random Event Brantgoose (REB) would be a bit of a contrarian, always rebelling against injustice and stupidity. Miracle would probably be a psycho or possibly a saint.

This just underscores the importance of names. My Mother says that if she had a second chance she would give her children names that were easier to spell. My name is not too bad--absolutely everybody else mishears it or misspells it, but that's just because it is unusual, unexpected, close to being unique. I always had the same problem that Bart Simpson discovered when the family vacationed at Itchy & Scratchy Land--no stupid "personalized" merchandise with my name on it. It's always Bort, Bort, Bort, and never Bart.

I agree with Bart. Bort is a stupid name and the people who bear it are not in the same class as me.

See, it works!

There is a handful of people with my name in North America, possibly the UK or Europe. That's the way I like it, although I have not got the luxury of anonymity like the John Smiths do.

Aw, he could have been named worse. If he had been a girl he might be named Vendetta.

And now, back to the adventures of Reading Skills Boy. This week Reading Skills Boy again saves the day with his remarkable ability to read things by RTFM.

I really think that something like that would be of assistance to the literacy movement. RSB would teach children and adults alike the importance of being able to read and also reading at all possible opportunities.

Because, as Mark Twain so wisely said, "The man who does not read good books is no better off than the man who can not."

Yes, I do feel guilty for wasting my time and money on TotalFark. I should be reading good books, listening to good music, and eating good food, all while taking a good long walk and a nice good long soak in the tub. But we are our own worst enemies, especially if we have that lazy gene that the scientists are talking about.

Besides, there's a reason why people prefer the dubious convenience of Big Box Stores, supermarkets and Fark.com. You have everything you could possibly not want under one big tent, er, roof.

My guess is that at minimum this episode can teach kids that reading the farkin label before you stick something in your face can be a good idea.   If it takes a gold-star equivalent hero award to make them remember it, so be it.

/That tie picture is going to haunt that kid someday.  Every time a prospective date googles Sullivan Moore.

Don't take yourself too f*cking seriously... Because you don't deserve any extra appreciation, you don't deserve any extra respect, you don't deserve any extra attention, you deserve exactly what the f*ck you've already gotten and you should be super duper thankful for that. And any time you want more than than what you're getting, you're a coont. It's that simple, if you "demand respect" you're a coont. You're simply a coont.
