And then post a relevant reply if you have anything to say.
Unless everyone is posting absolute trollop (I like that word) and then you just try and make a topic out of it all.

to be a simple mix of four elements: that fire, water, earth and air
are the four components out of which all around us is made. And yet,
some simple experimentation proves this not to be the case: one can
not mix air and earth to create a bird, nor obtain from a mix of fire
and water much more than a hot fog. And yet, they were close to the
truth: though the so-called elements have been ridiculed much since,
they are indeed the "states of matter" known to the modern man, air
representing gaseous, water liquid, earth solid and fire plasma,
AEther of course not being represented visibly, or, more accurately,
being truthfully represented by the space between the spokes of the
ancient alchemical wheel. All this has allowed me to apply a
collection of matter in these five states to recreate an ancient
recipe, placing them at the vertices of a pentagram to bring into this
world a drag<" Alas, the end of the page was eaten away by some kind
of corrosive fluid, centering around something that could be mistaken
for the ma-ah-<achoo>-mark of giant teeth. Though this can probably be
safely treated as harmless gibberish, it shows remarkable
insi-<aye-choo>-sight for a writer who, judging by the inkblots, lived
at least a ce-eh-echoo!-century ago.

Well, technically it wasnt a strike, because tecaher arent allowed to strike here. It was more of a protest in which a lot of teachers did come to school. They took all took sick days.

And no, nothing concerning the gospel of raptor jesus.
Over here a bill is being passed that would tie teachers pay to the performance of the students.
Essentially, at the end of the year, every class, even electives will have a standardized end of the year test. The passing rate of the students determines the teachers pay.
The problems with this plan are obvious.

Apart from that, the standardized tests for the classes are printed by a friend of the ex-governor. So there is private interest in this bill getting passed as well.
