The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Lost Faith In Humanity? Well **** Just Got Worse, 3rd Grader Murder Plot

    No, not an adult plotting to murder 3rd graders, but 3rd graders plotting to murder their teacher.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/n...,6495203.story

    WAYCROSS, Ga. - Police say a group of third-graders plotted to attack their teacher, bringing a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape and other items for the job and assigning children tasks including covering the windows and cleaning up afterward.

    The plot by as many as nine boys and girls at Center Elementary School in south Georgia was a serious threat, Waycross Police Chief Tony Tanner said Tuesday.

    ...

    The children, ages 8 and 9, were apparently mad at the teacher because she had scolded one of them for standing on a chair, Tanner said.
    ...I'm speechless.

    Hurray parenting. At that age, clearly some part of learning responsibility, rules and consequences have gone wrong at home. ****ing children these days makes me worried to have any of my own at a later date.

    In all seriousness, how do you punish something like this? Are the children punished?

    I have no qualms with bashing a little 3rd graders head in. A knife from one of those little kids will do just as much damage as a knife in the hands of somebody bigger.

    As I've said before...it seems as though the world is going to hell in a handbasket sooner than later. If I were one of their parents, the kid would get shipped to military school till he/she was 18. No questions asked.

    If anyone came at me with a knife with serious intent, it's on. Reminded me of this site as well: http://www.howmanyfiveyearoldscouldyoutakeinafight.com/

    Said I could take 31 but I'm very confident I could go upwards of 90-100 before tiring.

    Pretty soon teachers will be allowed to carry guns. What is happening on college campuses and in highschools - I personally don't ahve a problem with it.

    Throw the ****ers in jail. They're 9, they have the ability to think and reason. They might not bave the same intillect as a grown adult, but they definitely should know murder is, uhhh, bad. Their parents should also be neutered, as they're obviously too damn stupid to know how to properly raise a child.

    You guys got it all wrong. Humanity isn't any worse -- it's always been like this. Think about it. Everyone thinks their generation is different, and major ***** is gonna go down, but that's just not true. Humanity has always been brutal and senseless, and probably always will be.

    I wonder what the teacher would have done? started knocking out 3rd graders all over the place? I think I could easily take out a class of 3rd graders ever if they had their safety scissors and tape.

    I haven't laughed that hard in weeks. I love the last question: "During the fight, would you feel morally comfortable picking up a child and using him/her as a weapon to throw at other children?" Hahahahaaaa yes.

    It said I could take on 31 too, but yeah I feel like I could handle way more than that.

    As far as the kids and their little plot, my first reaction was "wtf????" then a second later I'm thinking, "God that's awful, but am I really shocked? Nope." Forget about teachers carrying guns, how about a flamethrower? I hate children.

    Nah, I double checked. Not an April Fools joke, else it wouldn't have been in so many news outlets. And most news organizations won't do April Fools jokes.

    I'm puzzled as to what kind of punishment they'd get. Legally there isn't much, but the parents should be forced to do something by society. Boot camp would work wonders I bet.

    Toss em in a boot camp and teach them some discpline.

    Although if a bunch of 3rd grades attacked me with only one knife i'd suspect i'd come out on top... Their third graders.

    A broken steak knife? HUGE FAIL. That kid's punishment should be thinking up a proper way to kill someone, he is just a being silly.
