Am I supposed to know wtf I'm looking at here?  Because I don't.

Buddha and Jesus take a sabbatical and go on vacation to Tokyo.


Buddha only wants to tour with Jesus because he can turn a $2 ramen bowl into 40

Someone's brain is starved of something, but it isn't the Buddhists'.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: If you wanna be Buddhist and wear a turban and pray to the holy cow and all that shiat, do it on your own time. I'm sure there's a 711 or some shiat close by where they hold prayer chants in between refilling the Slurpee machine.

OnlyM3: Last week "Student told to STFU when she mentioned God". Fark reaction "Good. biatch should keep her mythology to herself.

This week "Student to to STFU when he mentions Budism". Fark reaction hypocrisy.

// Both teachers are idiots and should be fired.


I love it when people who had previously earned a "stupid" tag say stupid things.

If I hadn't bothered to RTFA I might not know that your characterization of this story revealed a complete lack of understanding of the issues at hand.

Fail! Peas have lots of protein. Like 5%. Knowledge is power! lol

Actually peas have an enormous amount of protein, depending on how you measure it.

On a per calorie basis, peas have more than 5 times as much protein as beef, and almost zero fat

OK is this bullshiat or not? Don't make me look it up.


Sounds more like pulses than garden peas.

fusillade762: Didn't they fire all the teachers in LA after Katrina? Or was that just in New Orleans?


If teachers hadn't been teaching gay math all the live-long day then god would not have unleashed Katrina and that's why we can't have nice Jesusy things.  What god couldn't purge with water, we purged with fire...ing.

When the outraged parents confronted Sabine Parish Superintendent Sara Ebarb about the incidents, she allegedly told them "this is the Bible belt" and that they "shouldn't be offended" to "see God here." Ebarb advised that C.C. should either change his faith or be transferred to another District school where "there are more Asians."

The obvious legal implications aside what has race got anything to do with religion? Last I check there are a lot of Asian Christians in the US. How does 'moving' to a school district with more Asians mitigate the student's problem anymore than one with caucasian or black students?

Just trying to understand the logic behind her statement is all.

And hence I quote the Bible on how the earth was created (or as best as I can recall):

In the beginning there was silence
and darkness, all across the earth.
Then came the wind, and a hole in the sky.
Thunder and lightning keep crushing down,
hit the earth and split the ground,
fire burning high in the sky.
From down below, fire melted the stone,
the ground shook, and started to pound.
The gods made heavy metal,
and they saw that it was good.
They said to play it louder than hell,
we promised that we would.
When loosers say its over with,
you know that its a lie.
The gods made heavy metal,
and its never gonna die.
We are the true believers,
its our turn to show the world,
in the fire of heavy metal,
we were burnt.
It's more than our religion,
it's the only way to live,
but the enemies of metal,
we can't forgive.
We believe in the power and the might,
and the gods who made metal, are with us tonight.
The gods made heavy metal,
and they saw that it was good.
They said to play it louder than hell,
we promised that we would.
When loosers say its over with,
you know that its a lie.
The gods made heavy metal,
and its never... gonna die.
We believe in the power and the might,
and the gods who made metal, are with us tonight.
We're here tonight for heavy metal,
are you ready in the hall?
They have chosen us,
and we have heard the call.
Go and tell rumor with our sound,
crack walls and shake the ground.
Fight tonight for metal,
one and all.
(cause)
we believe in the power and the might,
and the gods who made metal, are with us tonight.
The gods made heavy metal,
and they saw that it was good.
They said to play it louder than hell,
we promised that we would.
When loosers say its over with,
you know that its a lie.
The gods made heavy metal,
and its never gonna die.
The gods made heavy metal,
and they saw that it was good.

Pointy Tail of Satan: When I was like 10, I got tossed from Sunday School for asking "How can we tell that God isn't dead?" I would have been at war at age 10 if I lived in Louisiana.


I quit Sunday School when I was 5 or 6. I told my parents I would not go back because I did not believe the stories. At the time, I still found Santa believable, but God was just too ridiculous.

That's some weapons-grade bullshiat right there.  Steak is comprised of about 50% protein calories.  Twice as much is already 100% protein calories.  5 times as much is 250% protein calories.  Which peas are we talking about, exactly?

Thank god I grew up in South, Louisiana.


Hear, hear. South Louisiana isn't absolutely awful--in fact, the public schools I attended were pretty damned good. Had excellent teachers, received a good education that actually prepared me for college.

Fire everyone involved, seize everything they own and give it to the school and/or bullied kids, then let the entire nation throw rotten fruit at them as a warning to all ignorant, evil, wretched wastes of flesh who think of doing similar things. Problem solved.

Not bullshiat. By weight, meat has way more protein, but also way more fat and calories.

100 g of cooked peas: 42 calories - .323g fat  -  3.27g protein
100g Tbone steak:  247 calories  - 15.93g fat -  24.18g protein

But on a per calorie basis, more than a few green vegetables beat the shiat out of meat. Of course, that means you have to consume a lot more food to maintain your caloric intake, but that's pretty easy in the first world

Peas: 3.27g protein/42 calories =  .078g protein/cal
Meat: 24.18g protein/247 calories =  I should have been more careful choosing which vegetable to compare to meat - peas are slightly lower in this particular example.

But seriously, if you look it up, you'll find that on a per calorie basis, there are several green vegetables that have more protein than meat. Broccoli and kale are the highest, I think. Just not peas. But remember, also too - zero fat in the green vegetables

Bah, I see and hear of these idiots making it seem like Louisiana is stuck in the 1700s. While I live in Louisiana.. all these stupid things are either in northern Louisiana (and yes Sabine Parish is considered in the northern part) or just along the border of our neighboring states. I swear half the time I want to just sell off the these parishes to the neighboring states just to say "See its the dumb farks in texas/arkansas/mississippi that come up with dumb ideas"

To comprise means  to consist of or  to be made up of. It is used to denote that something  is made up of smaller parts. Do not use the word  of with comprise.

"to comprise" means "to contain" (1), as in "The house comprises seven rooms." In other words, this house has or contains seven rooms. When you use "comprise," you're talking about all the parts that make up something. -

Dear Louisiana,
 
You are my home state. I root for the Tigers and Saints no matter what kind of season they have. The cajun, southern, and creole food is in my blood! Hell, even some of my "louisiana accent" sneaks up on me in conversation. And while it's hard to tell sometimes, there are a lot of beautiful places around to feel one with nature. I have loved you and defended you for many years,

But not anymore. I'm done with you for good. You can boast about the wonderful food/filming/fun, but yet you ignore ANY attempt to PROGRESS/grow  with the rest of the nation (and humanity) when it comes to anything that just might NOT be biblical. And while you pander to tourists, you don't bother to take care of your own people in terms of education and basic human rights. The evidence is everywhere, esp with stories like this. You have become the joke of the nation. The partying and wonderful food can't save you now.

and it's with a heavy heart that I have to walk away now. I can't defend you anymore. I'm done.

Goodbye and Rot in hell,
