Only in the UK. I thought I'd seen and heard it all but ...... This is just unbelievable.

Where are we going in this country? Even the HSE had a laugh.   


RAF Abingdon 1967. I met Beverley from Blackburn. Fantastic!

I thought it was only gun-shaped Pop Tarts were the only danger in the cafeteria.

Thank God this weapon has also been removed from the schools.

That's a flapjack???

In similar idiocy from the UK...

Quote:
TEACHERS are banning schoolkids from having best pals — so they don’t get upset by fall-outs.
Instead, the primary pupils are being encouraged to play in large groups.
Educational psychologist Gaynor Sbuttoni said the policy has been used at schools in Kingston, South West London, and Surrey.
She added: “I have noticed that teachers tell children they shouldn’t have a best friend and that everyone should play together.
“They are doing it because they want to save the child the pain of splitting up from their best friend.

I love England. I lived there nearly 4 years. I love the culture and history, and the historic never-say-die attitude and refusal to bow in the face of adversity. But WTF has happened to the UK in the past generation or two?

Same thing as in the US I suppose.

Yep. We are going to hell in a hand basket.

Someone should suggest to the kids to eat their flapjacks in a Chinese throwing star pattern. That will freak out the weak hearted and get their panties in a twist. They will probably shut down the schools.

It makes absolute sense.

When kids start throwing food at themselves at school, the best possible way to avoid anything bad happening to anybody is to change the shape of said food so that it doesn't hurt anyone.

God forbid anyone would try to bring back any kind of discipline in school instead.
No. Let's just avoid pointy shaped food instead. Just easier.

  



Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

Same here - but even they couldn't make up anything this crazy.

Yes it is - I actually saw an auto sunshade that had a warning printed on it that said "do not operate vehicle with sunshade in place." I have to believe it's because someone probably sued the maker once because they got in a wreck and the maker had to pay.

There was an interview in this week´s Spiegel magazine with an American woman who had been living in France and noticed that French kids of all ages were usually better behaved than their American or British counterparts. She puts it tom the fact that French parents give their children clear borders within which they can behave, but any behaviour outside these borderrs is no being tolerated. Also they make it clear that the child isn´t the centee of the universe and the parents and others have rights too.
