vudukungfu: I'm going to send the school a big box of farking pampers
The Irresponsible Captain: vudukungfu: I'm going to send the school a big box of farking pampersThat's the root of a good idea, there. We just need to work out some details.I suggest that people just post one disposable diaper to someone responsible for overreacting to a "threat".You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people mailing diapers? They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day mailing diapers? And friends they may think it's a movement.
jon787: Culture of Fear.Back in my day, to get out of class you had to phone in a bomb threat, which is in and of itself a crime. That the call itself was a crime regardless of how true it was acted as a deterrant to preven it from happening often.To get out of class now you just call in a suspicious person near the school. Best part is you're unlikely to get in trouble no matter what. In fact if you find an actual person acting even a little weird to report as the suspicious person, your 'victim' is more likely to get in trouble than you are. There is after all, no real standard on what constitutes suspicious behavior. Same things apply to suspicious packages and again, the person who owns the package is more likely to get in trouble than you regardless of how benign the package actually is.Not that I'm saying these pirates were reported as suspicious by someone who just wanted to get out of class, but it was aliens.
