I think its about time the teachers in all schools go on a gun awareness day, this way they can be taught to recognise the real ones from the fake ones. and then they could react accordingly. but pure stupidity to leave it in a desk for 1,2,3 days, step 1; take it from the child 2: place it in locked secure cabinet. 3: call cops. job done in ten minute flat.

I was talking to my wife about this the other week, Ive noticed that vertualy all of the films or TV programs that come from the USA revolve around gun and violence, Its about time 90% was cut out, this wont stop there love of guns etc but it might hopefully cut down on gun crime

I think there is an opening for some to open a self help group to help these people that don't have or lost the essential skills to intereact with other people with working silly long hours, In fact he ought to change to a job so that you don't have to work 24 hours a day for peanuts!!

KIBOUSHA, your right, I found that bullies pick on the weakest, but usually if you fight back the bulling will stop. This is because they don't like getting smacked in the mouth etc. My friend father use to tell him when there is a pack of them, pick on the biggest one and go for them. This shows that you’re not afraid. You might get a kicking but you will get respect

This article makes me shudder, I understand all about “tradition” etc, but were in modern times now and I have to ask my self is this killing in full view a good thing? And I fear it is not, I’m surprised that now one has suggested a pay to view web cam, the camera could be mounded underneath the boat so you can see all of the action, please don’t take me up on this idea. They seriously need to rethink there concept for the park.

well according to internet 2.6 mill could be right !
"The Birkin bag is a handbag by Hermès, handmade in leather and named after actress and singer Jane Birkin. The bag is a symbol of wealth due to its high price and usage by celebrities.
Its prices range from £4,800 to £100,000 ($7,400 to $150,000). Costs escalate according to the type of materials. The bags are distributed to Hermès boutiques on unpredictable schedules and in limited quantities, creating scarcity and, intended or unintended, exclusivity."

I think this is a good idea, those plastic shopping bags just cut into the back of your fingers when they have shopping in, which cuts off circulation. I just hope people don't think its a device that allows you to carry more, if it is that's a bit daft.
