3rd-Grader Busted For Jolly Rancher Possession

bFusion Re:Bad summary, and intentionally misleading cover (804 comments)

Kids should eat in an easy to clean area, they should be able to eat whatever the parents decide to send.

As much as I want to agree with that, I also think children should eat healthy. There are a lot of negligent or (more likely) ignorant parents out there who are more than happy to pack some questionable highly-processed food like Lunchables thinking that it's good and healthy for their child.

bFusion Re:Ahh, but... (804 comments)

This was my other concern with this... if they are banning candy, I sure as hell hope they are offering healthy food in their lines.

3rd-Grader Busted For Jolly Rancher Possession

bFusion Re:More "zero tolerance" idiocy (804 comments)

Then you're free to home-school your child and bypass the rules and regulations set up in public schools.

The problem here are the parents that are far more negligent than you are and send their child to school with completely nutritionally devoid food, or with little or no money to purchase food.

While I agree that such harsh steps shouldn't be taken, I strongly agree with the purpose of the initiative. Parents need to learn that a healthy attitude towards food is an invaluable thing that needs to be TAUGHT to their children. The school system can only do so much in keeping kids healthy. In the end, it IS your kid and you DO set the rules, but those rules are leading your kid to a life of obesity or diabetes, that's child abuse in my book.

Girl Claims Price Scanner Gave Her Tourette's Syndrome

bFusion Re:County Fair (558 comments)

Gotcha, that makes more sense. So they just cover her in a blanket whenever she's outside so all that light doesn't burn her skin off then. Glad fluorescent lights don't affect her.

Girl Claims Price Scanner Gave Her Tourette's Syndrome

bFusion County Fair (558 comments)

So the girl was sensitive to light? Why was she outside IN THE SUN at a county fair. Or even worse if it was at night, LEDs are friggin everywhere when it's dark out.

It's surprising she didn't spontaneously combust.

It's not about breeding into uniformity. It's about not looking down upon someone who is different from you.
