one time in elementary school i got this girl suspended because i heard someone say the word douchebag and i thought it was a fun thing to say so in science i was sitting next to this girl who was being a total bitch and i told her that i was going to put a douchebag in her mailbox and she screamed “WHATS A DOUCHEBAG” and my teacher suspended her

Receiving praise from teachers
  • Elementary school:Yay! I got a sticker! I did a good job!
  • Middle school:Um okay thanks
  • High School:Don't talk to me like a child. I'm not five. Treat me like an adult.
  • College:Oh god YES PLEASE tell me I did a good job I need this so much I feel like such a failure I will accept a sticker on my work I don't care if I'm an adult please let me know I did good

Well, I’m not terrible. I did grow up when computers were being used in school — even though in elementary school they were fairly new — so I’m not like my mom. But I’m also not fantastic with them. I definitely can’t break into traffic lights and hack into systems. I’ve got Apple T.V., but I can’t figure out iCloud.

Treefoil - Trefoil

Knot theory is a branch of topology which considers the different embeddings of a cycle into three-dimensional Euclidean space, R^3. The simplest type of knot is the unknot, which is just an ordinary circle (which can be ‘thickened’ to form a torus). The second simplest knot, the trefoil knot, is obtained by doing a bog-standard knot in a piece of string and connecting the ends.

The usual way to show that two knots are not equivalent is to develop some kind of invariant which is preserved when you do elementary operations (known as Reidemeister moves) to a planar drawing of a knot.

And, Treefoil is a cycle (walk which visits no vertex more than once, except the start/end vertex) in Z^3 (three-dimensional integer lattice) with the following properties:

  • The three projections parallel to the unit vectors are all trees;
  • The cycle has threefold rotational symmetry;
  • The cycle is a trefoil knot.

The cycle (Image 2) named the Treefoil, inhabiting a 9 × 9 × 9 box. You can see the three projections and a three-dimensional perspective view above.

Source: Images on a school employee’s Facebook page are causing controversy with the district. Ralph White is a local activist in the Central Valley, and he spoke out at Tuesday’s Manteca Unified School District School Board meeting. “That’s the most racist stuff I’ve seen in this valley,” White said. The stuff White is talking about is on a Manteca Unified employee’s Facebook page.

Debie McLarty has several pictures on Facebook, but two parents were disturbed by the opinions exhibited by some of them. McLarty, the head clerk at Walter Woodward Elementary, has a picture showing a bullet going through President Barack Obama’s head, as well as pictures of her entire family wearing in Confederate Flag gear.

FOX40 reached out to McLarty, who simply replied, “No comment. It’s my business.” However, Sam Fant, the school board’s vice president, says it’s not that simple, he says it’s the district’s business too. The school district has policies in place for employees’ social media, and will begin investigating the matter Wednesday. “Those photos absolutely reflect aggression, oppression and slavery,” Fant told FOX40.

While Debie McLarty did not speak with FOX40, her son Jeff spoke out. “That’s someone’s opinion, and if you don’t like it, don’t read it,” Jeff McLarty said. Debie McLarty’s Facebook page was public, but after FOX40’s report aired the page was deleted.

When officials at an elementary school in Gustine, Texas, kept finding poop on the gym floor, they decided to get to the bottom of the matter.

But their method of investigation has parents and students raising a stink.

On Monday, officials at Gustine Elementary rounded up 24 students, and divided them up by gender. Then the kids were ordered to pull down their pants far enough so educators could see if there were any tell-tale fecal stains.

Eliza Medina, 11, was embarrassed by the “poop inspection.”

"I felt uncomfortable, and I didn’t want to do it," Eliza Medina, 11, told WFAA TV. "I felt like they violated my privacy."

Eliza’s mom, Marina Medina, said that she understands how frustrating feces on the floor can be, but it isn’t any excuse to partially strip search students.

"I was furious… I mean, I was furious," Medina said, according to KHOU TV. "If you can’t do your job or you don’t know what you’re doing, you need to be fired. You shouldn’t be here."

Gustine Independent School District Superintendent Ken Baugh is investigating the matter in hopes of getting the story straight. He said his understanding was that children were told to lower their pants just a little.

Eliza Medina said the “poop inspections” went further. “Like… to where your butt is,” is how she phrased it, according to the Washington Times.

Baugh hopes to have the investigation wrapped up by Thursday’s school board meeting, where some angry parents are expected to give officials a lot of crap.


Hello Kawaii JapanLovers! For today’s fun trivia, we’re going to share some background & history about the iconic Japanese backpack, “randoseru”! (★^O^★)

ALSO, we will be giving away a BRAND NEW randoseru soon @ Japan Lover Me Store / our instagram shop (@japanloverme.store) ~ so please stay tuned!

[History of Randoseru]
A randoseru (ランドセル) is a firm-sided backpack made of stitched firm leather or leather-like synthetic material, most commonly used in Japan by elementary schoolchildren. Traditionally it is given to a child upon beginning his or her first year of school. The term is a borrowed word from the Dutch “ransel” meaning “backpack”, a clue to its origins nearly 200 years ago as used in the Netherlands.

In more conservative schools the color, brand and design is mandated, typically with red as the traditional color for girls and black for boys. However, due to changing attitudes toward gender stereotypes, more colorful versions such as pink, brown, dark blue, green, blue and even two-tones are more widespread. These varieties have existed since the 1960s but sold poorly due to the lock-step mentality of the education system that gradually began changing in the early 2000s. The increased variety of colors is partly as a compromise for parents to retain some tradition within modernized schools which no longer require the use of traditional uniforms or the randoseru. o(〃^▽^〃)o

"… At Tsuchiya Bag Co., LTD. the first step in making a leather randoseru is selecting the materials the use. From there, expert craftsmen skillfully mark out pieces needed to make one randoseru. After being cut using with a pressing machine, these pieces are reinforced with adhesive before being combined to make the larger parts, which are the back, flap and gusset.."

”.. From iconic designs featured in manga and anime to high-end almost luxury designs, randoseru varieties are plentiful. The 6-year warranty offered with each purchase is a true testament to its high quality. And the moment these high quality bags became known by the world, is the moment they became more than just bags for school kids.”

A brand new randoseru typically ranges from 500-900 USD.
