Government stupids and cliche-spouting Malthusian from fark.com

Does it really matter where the first chili pepper was grown?

‘This information better equips us to develop genetic conservation programmes, increases the efficiency of breeding programmes and will be critically important as we work to deal with climate change and provide food for a rapidly increasing global population.’

(Oh, it’s about climate change and feeding the Malthusians. Carry on, cliché users.)

Here’s the proof of Russian interference!

‘Police say they take complaints of anti-social behaviour very seriously’

Girls build stick house in woods, have picnic, told to leave by police.

Sleepy students; kid-stressed parents

Fairfax County Virginia teens don’t get enough sleep – less than six hours a night, when the scientific recommendation is nine hours. What to do, what to do.

The county school board might have an answer: Later school start times, 30 minutes or maybe an hour.

In defense of the proposal: Some kids get on school buses at 5:20 a.m. to get to school that starts at 7:20 a.m.

Both those times are way too early. The only reason kids should be up and about at 5:20 a.m. is to milk cows.

A couple of months ago, Arkansas school kids spent a lot of time at home because snow covered much of the state for days on end.

After snow melted and kids went back to school, the Little Rock School District announced counseling availability for parents who had become over stressed with their kids home for three and four days in a row.

Stressed parents should have gotten their kids up at 5:20 a.m. and sent them outside to build snow cows for pretend milking.
