Detention for using Firefox.

Tag: Insanity,Makes you think ...erm @ 8:26 am

It seems more and more school isn’t about teaching you “how to think”, but teaching you “what to think”.

I think Firefox is a much safer browser. It’s a lot more secure than IE, and on top of that they actually try and uphold web standards when rendering a web page.

It’s cross platform, so you get the same results on linux, mac, and windows.

What this really says to me is that the teacher would rather “teach” that they have authority over the student, and the student must obey. Even if what they are doing is a more sound choice.

There is a phone number, maybe someone should cal and educate them. Personally I don’t have any desire to harass some school board member. They’ve got their hands full with all the other parents.

Here’s a link to the original image.

Pay too much and you could raise the alarm

Pay too much and you could raise the alarm
This is just insane. Apparently now you can be considered a terrorist if you pay too much on your credit card bill.

This sucks because we were planning on playing a big amount off on one of our debts when we get a refund this next year.

When is paying off a debt going to make you a terrorist? I would think if you were funding a terrorist operation you would pay cash.

I guess being responsible and paying your bills off isn’t “American.”

Next thing you know if you buy gold you’re going to be considered a terrorist, and not someone who is just trying to get prepared for the future in the event all your assets are frozen because you “might” be a terrorist.

We shouldn’t be under such scrutiny.  Paying a bill off is so freaking harmless.  I’m not scared of Terrorists.  I’m more scared of the government looking for terrorists
