Eh...honestly, a teen is going to smoke whether someone wants them to or not. Now, I think having a doctor's note is stupid as hell, but at one of my high schools, there was a designated smoking area where teens could smoke in between classes so long as they stayed in that area *shrugs* It kept them from sneaking them in other undesirable places (the bathroom, etc), and it gave them the chance to do what they'd otherwise do anyway.

How on earth is this legal? I can't see how a school would allow for breaking the law just because "teens would smoke otherwise".

As to JnP's article, I must agree with the WTFery. Boo hoo, you're stressed; deal with it like the rest of us do. This just goes to show how pathetic addiction makes people; I have no sympathy for this girl what-so-ever.

I dunno, I was like 14...so I have no idea. It probably doesn't exist now, but I know back when my brother and I went to the school, it did. Maybe it was a spot that wasn't technically school property? Given that I don't smoke myself (can't stand the stuff), I never actually went to the spot to check it out. But I know my brother went (he used to smoke). I'll have to ask him.

And I agree that this girl shouldn't be given special priviliges...I think the whole "omg i have a dr's note to prove my addiction, it's like a medical problem" is bullshit, too.

I dont think it was just your school then either Tiff cause when I went to highschool there was a designated smoking area outside the cafeteria to. I guess because there were some seniors who turned 18 before graduation and just some dumbasses who were like 16 in the 8th grade then finally made it to highschool for the free lunches, that they figured theyd have the area for them since they could legally buy cigarettes. Unfortunately though alot of minors used the areas to smoke to, and no one ever got into trouble for it so it was just another norm.

I dunno if its still like that considering I havent seen my school in 12 years but ya never know.

XD;; Good to know I'm not crazy.

This particular school was really, really bad, too. It had barbed wire around it, cops patrolling the area, and teachers regularly got their asses beat. So...the teachers probably weren't concerned with making the smokign stop. They probably just dealt with it the best they knew how.

Yeah I noticed that the rougher area the school the less people worried about things that go on in said school. Funny thing though for staten island the highschool I went to wasnt that bad of a school it was in a pretty good area. But alot of kids that were older went there to and they would bus kids from bad neighboorhoods in as well. So I guess as long as no big whigs from the school board showed up no one batt an eye lash at what some kids did during lunch break.

LOL considering I havent really been into Prince (symbol or whatever the heck hes calling himself now adays) since the Purple Rain era I find this whole thing funny. You would think he would care about his fans who still make sites devoted to him since they um pretty much made him who he is today..well maybe not the whole freaky got to change my name to a freaking symbol thing but ugh some musicians really tend to forget about the fans till their asses are owing the irs and in the poor house.

You'd think the courts would be more focused on more pressing issues, rather than some celebrity turning on his fans.

Wow what a weird design for a house, but it is trying to promote hygiene so I guess its not so bad.

Well, I do like the look of the smooth, wavy roof. Functional roof space is always a plus for me. The integration of the windows with those black "tiles" is pretty interesting, too. And the curve of the house would be an energy-saving feature, reducing wind shear.

That being said, it's shaped like a toilet. :\

I could also foresee some problems with that entry/exit to the roof area. You essentially have windows and a door located in a giant rain basin. And that bright white would turn so horribly dingy... especially if that house is using plaster on the outer walls like an adobe, as I suspect they are.

Spray on Condoms o.O

Post by Passions55 » Tue Nov 13, 2007 7:12 pm

I just found this on another board and I just couldn't resist, here is what the arctile had to say:

German sex educators plan spray-on condom
From Reuters
10:44 AM PST, November 30, 2006


http://www.latimes.com/features/heal...fault-underdog


BERLIN -- German sex educators plan to launch a spray-on condom tailor-made for all sizes.

Jan Vinzenz Krause from the Institute for Condom Consultancy, a Singen-based practice that offers advice on condom use, told Reuters today the product aimed to help people enjoy better and safer sex lives.

"We're trying to develop the perfect condom for men that's suited to every size of penis," he said. "We're very serious."

Krause's team (spraykondom.de) is developing a type of spray can into which the man inserts his penis first. At the push of a button it is then coated in a rubber condom.

"It works by spraying on latex from nozzles on all sides," he said. "We call it the '360 degree procedure' - once round and from top to bottom. It's a bit like a car wash."

Krause said the plan is to make the product ready for use in about five seconds. He said it would function more effectively as a contraceptive because it would fit better and not slip.

However, before the new condom can be sold in shops, the firm must ensure that the latex is evenly spread when sprayed, as well as optimise the vulcanization process.

Krause hopes the high tech condom, which will be available in different strengths and colours, will on the market by 2008.

He said the spray can would likely cost some 20 euros ($26) as a one-off purchase. The latex cartridges - sufficient for up to 20 applications - would cost roughly 10 euros, he said.

Krause said he had hit upon the idea when considering the difficulties some people faced using condoms, and drew inspiration from spray-on plasters now used in medicine.

here is the link to the forum I found this on:
