Teacher “Appriciation” Day – Well Sorta

Somehow we’ve got two posts with “educational” related themes (see the post before this one), so I thought I’d help out our fellow students one more time. One of our editors, the lovely peaceluvbug will be heading off to begin “the college years” in three weeks (timer is on the right below).

Where, you ask?

To Lugano, Switzerland of all places. Attending Franklin College, I figured she could use some advice before she goes, from you teachers, and current/former students. Many of you have traveled, so have any words of wisdom for the young lass?

Post your suggestions and responses by clicking here, and let’s see what she says.


There is a whole forum section dedicated to her college experiance over in Lugano…check it before you wreck it.

A Teacher Hack

I was never on the side of my educational adversaires (as is obvious by my spelling), but I’d like to share this little teacher hack with you all.

Long story short, our hearing diminishes as we ages, and the high pitches go first. That’s why teenagers can hear high frequencies that adults cannot. The sounds aren’t pleasent, but they are a great way to send text messages in class — and teachers won’t hear a peep.

But teenagers will.

You can test your hearing at this site, and download hypersonic ringtones as well. What’s even cooler is that if you can’t hear the tone, download the ringtone and put it on speaker. Adults won’t hear anything, but if you go to the mall on full blast, you’ll sure annoy the hell out of some little punks, ages 5 and up 🙂

The Steroid Olympics

The recent story about Floyd Landis using drugs to win the Tour de France is the latest big deal in the sports community. So the guy had some extra testosterone in him, who hasn’t at one point?

Landis came by l’avant poste and had this to say,

“I have more testosterone in my blood because i’m twice the man those half-fruity french will ever be.”

And well, everyone just shrugged their shoulders and had to agree.

Personally, i’ve always wanted to see a ‘super-human‘ olympics. The total and complete opposite of the special olympics, where steroid/drug use is not only allowed, but encouraged! and i mean every single drug! Let the pot heads have their race, they won’t get very far, but who cares! It’ll prove a point and be fun to watch!


And in the steroid pole vault – let’s see how high a man can reeeally jump. Let’s put human abilities to the test, and max them out. If Lance Armstrong can circle around France and win 6 times with only one nut and a country musicgirlfriend, imagine what Dwayne Wade can do with 1300mg of roids in him…he’d jump OVER France baby!

Then we could even begin to challenge the other animals! I’d tuur a tiger up in jiu-jitsu if i had some speed or pcp in me. the possibilities are endless.

  • a coccaine footrace
  • a marijuana eating competition
  • steroid weightlifting
  • and a heroin “Blaaah-a-thon”

Hi, my name is Barry Bonds and I give this idea two thumbs up!


for some reason aol has decided to be retarded and i can’t log in to my email 🙁 it’s driving me crazy so i have decided to share that with the world. thank you and have a splendid day full of emails. 🙂

News of the Day: Lance Bass is Gay!
