Re: ITT:Creepy

I'm home alone. I just sneezed. Someone said bless you. I think that it's creepy, but the skeptic in me doubts wether or not it was paranormal or just a audio hallucination(not sure of the right term) But still creepy. More likely a serial killer with a giant knife and a selection of long sharp nee...

Re: School strip search case to be heard by Supreme Ct April 21

Private schools are hardly better (I would argue that they are worse) and homeschooling can really screw up and hinder your kid.
