I want to be a teacher, not!

I have two close friends who are teachers at two local public schools. One is teaching 8th graders, and the other is teaching high school. Often I would catch glimpse of their work lives through some the stories they share with me.

Both of them have several special-education students in their classrooms as part of an American education program called “Inclusion”. The idea behind “Inclusion” was that if special-education students are integrated into regular classrooms, maybe they will not feel so out of place, other kids would get to know them better, thus less harassment. Keep in mind, some of these special-education students are accompanied with an adult tutor (or keeper) at all times.

That idea looked great on paper, but in practice, it is a freaking disaster.

One of the most infamous stories is one special-education student attending at a local high school has to walk around with both of his hands raised above his head. It looks like he is surrendering on a battle field during WWII, while his keeper follows him around.

The reason for that is because if his hands were not elevated, he would then slip them into his pants and masturbates continuously.

My other friend who teaches 8th graders showed me some of the apology letters she has collected from last year. Although English is not my native language and I have always thought my English grammar is terrible, yet I am amazed by how poorly educated these 8th graders are.

One kid can't even spell words like "whole", "again", "disrespect", "throw", "kicked" correctly.

The Video About Fake Video iPod


Everytime I hear some news hype about Apple's latest product, I am reminded of this video. It was released to the internet earlier this year by a clever prankster showing how he has fooled all major news sources.

What would happen if the Islamic terrorist organization, Al Qaeda, would recruit for its new members in the same fashion as the Mormons?

Chaser's Report on Religious Shows


I am tired of staying up until the wee hours of the morning, hoping to catch a glimpse of good old Jesus-praising on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, yet disappointed by greedy televangelists and their money begging tactics. Sometimes, they simply do not make any sense what so ever.

Apparently, I am not the only one that has felt this way. Chas and Julian have also noticed this odd trend.
