“One time in high school, we decided to pull a prank on our choir teacher. So we got a giant stuffed teddy bear, and we emptied all the stuffing. I got inside the teddy bear, and when I got to school at six in the morning, we put the teddy bear inside his office. I was in it, obviously; I was too big so I couldn’t get all the way inside it, so my legs were sticking out of it, so we put the bottom part of it in a box, and stuffed newspaper in it, and on the teddy bear was a sign that said “Thank You Mr. Cobb”. So when he came in–and I was in there for about a half hour, by the way–he came in, turned on the lights, and walked in his office, he just looked at the bear, and said “I’ll get to that in a minute.” And he walked out of his office for a few minutes, and he came back, he picked up the card, and I jumped. When I jumped, I tried to jump out of the box, but my legs had fallen asleep, so I just fell over. But, before I even took off the bear head, he knew it was me. He said “Good morning, Brian.”—Brian Holden, Starkid
Not how you use birth control
- We got some great stories today from physicians who spoke on health literacy; here is one.
- Dr. B: Do you think there is any chance that a pregnancy could be causing these symptoms?
- Patient: Oh no! We use birth control so I shouldn't be pregnant.
- Dr. B: (after getting the positive pregnancy test back) So it appears that you are pregnant. Can you explain what kind of birth control you are on and how you take it?
- Patient: Oh, I don't take it. It made me feel weird so my boyfriend has been taking it instead.
- Dr. B: That explains a lot....
“Crowe came on set on our third day at Greenwich and was everything I had not expected him to be. He was friendly, a great hit with the kids and got on well with the crew (“Let’s have a drag of your fag, mate,” he was heard to say in between takes). And, yes, he really does have great presence. At Pinewood, where we filmed after Greenwich, he went off to find water for a “beggar” baby who was thirsty in the intense heat of the studio. The child was clearly upset and crying at being put into the arms of one of us beggars (not surprising given how horrendous we must have looked to her) but Crowe showed his paternal side by chatting to the child and her mum, who by now was wearing beggar gear too.”—an extra who plays one of the ‘beggars’ in Les Mis, recalling her experience meeting Russell Crowe on the set
This “Pee Bee Bee Teens?!” tag question should stop.
After almost a month of being absent, I was finally able to teach again earlier this afternoon. And during the course of my class, almost all my students delivered that ‘PBB Teens?’ wisecrack. If you can call it wise.
Take note, my students are six (6) to ten (10) years old.
I don’t watch that pseudo-reality show but based on what I have read, it is not a good influence on our teens. Especially on our young children who might take the housemates as their role model.
Trying my best to be nice in front of the kids, I told them to sleep early and stop watching that show because it will fry their brains.
And I told them to watch Mythbusters instead.
Who’s to blame? Their parents? The comedian who popularized that line? The TV show and its creators and producers? Or the noisier members of our society who continuously use that phrase.
Or maybe in the absence (or lack) of their parents’ guidance, it is my duty as their second guardian to teach them the difference between popular crap and good example?
I am pissed. I am disappointed. I am annoyed. But these are kids. They are in the stage of their lives when we, the elders, have to teach them what is right.
I hate that tag line. And the next time I hear it again from an elder, I swear I’m gonna slit his/her throat and pull his tongue out a la Khal Drogo.
Nah, I’m just kidding.
Be a good example to these kids. Or better yet, be a better role model.
“This one is really excellent. Once Michael has received a package with inside a positive pregnancy test that Marcos had obtained through his wife who was pregnant. The test was accompanied by a small card that said: "We need to talk. Signed C". Michael was completely freaked out! It was too funny! Marcos let him like that for 4days!”—Ian SOMERHALDER
The Filial Son Lee Sungmin
One day, while Sungmin was buying a luxury belt for his dad, Sungmin asked his mom, “Mom, you don’t have luxury bag right? I will buy you one so please take a pick”
And after 6 months, since it matched with the day Sungmin received his money (paycheck) , his mom called Sungmin and said, “Sungmin-ah, mom has a luxury bag that I like, I have been looking for it for 6 months”.
But then when he found the price, it was 3,400,000₩ (3,009 USD)…. looking at it again, it’s 3,400,000₩ ….usually his mom was someone who’d turn off the fan just to save electric power…
Sungmin heard that price and was taken back, said “It’s a bit….expensive^^;;”. His mom who had expected this before then said, “if not this, then i don’t have anything i like..”, so Sungmin said, “I got it~^^”
When Sungjin heard this, Sungjin thought that his hyung is really a filial son…
