It's very nice of the school to do that. In not-quite-restrospect-yet, I wonder if "going to high school" is the best use of the last two years of a tragically short life.

Dust doesn't make people cry.

Yeah that was bad.

I mean, for my eyes.

This girl gets a terminal diagnosis but the dusty meme is alive and well?  You people.  It's like strapping a retard into his bus seat sometimes with you farkers.  And another thing, stop with using the word obtuse.  You saw Shawshank Redemption, I get that, but you ding-dongs drop obtuse on someone like you think it's the nuclear megaton slam dunk argument instant win.  It is a word that means unintelligent and you're a boner douche who watches too many movies.

Can't say I fixed it for you.  I just like the word.

Retroboner.  What you get when thinking about a young Carrie Fisher.

As for the article - nice tp see them do something to make themselves feel all warm and tingly.  The girl is not going to care soon enough.

If they really wanted to give her something awesome before she passes, they would get her non-stop male strippes.

Thank GOD the school wasted the time and effort on her. She sure seems like a good long-term investment.

honestly, while this was nice, it was also short sited and sort of stupid.

"happy graduation!  now, you know graduation means that you are moving on to a new section of your life!  HAVE FUN IN THE GRAVE!"

It is if your folks can't afford an around world trip.

I'm not sure highschool is a good use of four years of anyones life. You can take the average freshman and run him through a GED in a month.

Pasco, FL trifecta in play?

This is why diplomas are essentially useless nowadays. They're too watered down at this point.

I especially like the "You're an idiot for trying to be a decent human being" vibe going on in here. I didn't know the misanthropes got up this early on a Saturday.

School should have suspended her for being on drugs. Zero tolerance!!

Yes, and your mom could've invested more time in holding your head down in the tub when you were a kid.

Anywho, kickass that they did that for her. Could find better ways to spend what little time you have left on this continuum ride, but hey, if it's what she wanted, go for it. What else could they school have done? Got her hookers and blow?

While some of the comments in this thread sink it down twenty-two-fold.

I have nothing to add to this conversation, just wanted to let you know that this made me literally laugh out loud, and I feel like a terrible person for it. Thank you!
