Teacher tells student to urinate in closet

A teacher has been recommended for suspension after she did not allow a student to use a restroom, resulting in the student urinating in a trash can in a classroom closet, school officials said.

Clearwater High School teacher, Lesley Campbell, violated the school district's policy that prohibits a teacher from making inappropriate remarks to a student or "exposing a student to unnecessary embarrassment or disparagement," district officials said.

Clayton Wilcox, superintendent of Pinellas County schools, says Campbell, 64, should be suspended without pay for 10 days.

"Her decision-making process wasn't appropriate in the classroom," Wilcox said. Campbell said when she told the junior he could not use the restroom Nov. 17, he suggested urinating in the can. Her reply, "Go ahead."

"I didn't let him go, but I should have," Campbell said. "Surely, I never thought he would use the trash can. It was astonishing. By the time he had grabbed the can and headed for the closet, I didn't feel comfortable approaching him."

Campbell, an English teacher, has requested a hearing on her recommended suspension.She has taught at the school for 20 years. It was not known if the unidentified student was disciplined.

Well, she was doing what the teacher told her to do. Article here.

Nick Lachey's new girlfriend has big boobs

Nick Lachey's rebound piece is former Miss Kentucky 2002, Elizabeth Arnold. Judging from these candid shots of her shopping, it's safe to say that Nick is a breast man. Elizbeth's assets might even be nicer than Jessica's? However, I don’t think she’s that hot? Maybe it’s just me? Whatever. You decide. Here are some pictures of her:

The ultimate watergun fight, ever...

StreetWars is a 3 week long, 24/7, watergun assassination tournament that has already taken place in New York City, Vancouver, Vienna, San Francisco and is now coming to Los Angeles.

At the start of the game you will receive a manila envelope containing the following:

*A picture of your intended target(s)
*The home address of your intended target(s)
*The work address of your intended target(s)
*The name of your intended target(s)
*Contact information of your intended target(s)

Upon receipt of these items, your mission is to find and kill (by way of water gun, water balloon or super soaker) your target(s).

You can hunt your target down any way you see fit; you can pose as a delivery person and jack them when they open the door, disguise yourself and take them out on the street, etc.

If you are successful in your assassination attempt, the person you killed will give you their envelope and the person they were supposed to kill becomes your new target. This continues until you work yourself through all the players and retrieve the envelope with your (or your team's) picture(s) and name(s). Then you win, cash...

Check out this 'Player Story' from past water gun games:

I took the most obscure routes home and went so far out of my way in order to reach my building from the other side. Doing so, I was able to ride right up the ramp attached to my stoop, with keys in hand. I was so close to being inside my house, when a fat lady wearing black nylons under Daisy Dukes with a very small Chihuahua distracted me. And then I got it. Right in the face. After giving up my cards, I cursed all the way up my four flights of stairs.

This game sounds like a f*ckin awesome time to me! Damn, I hope this is in Kansas City soon... click here to see the official Street Wars website.

Mother puts kids in cages, just for 'fun'?

Some of the special-needs children who slept in cage-like beds fitted with alarms had asked for the structures to be built, their adoptive mother testified at a custody hearing.
Sharen Gravelle testified Wednesday that she and her husband Michael built bunk beds and attached a wooden playhouse the family called a club house for some of the children's toys.

The other children then requested them and the couple felt the brightly painted beds enclosed with wood and wire helped keep them from getting into trouble at night, she said.

The couple have pleaded not guilty to several charges, including child endangerment, in a separate criminal case. The custody hearing was scheduled to resume Thursday.

The Gravelles are charged with child endangering, falsifying adoption applications and lying under oath when becoming qualified for adoption funding. If convicted, they would face one to five years in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine for each of 16 counts of felony child endangering.

This is just plain wrong. Note: the picture used above is not a real picture of the family described in this article. Read the full article here.

Teen hires hit man to kill for cheese?

A woman who apparently thought a block of white cheese was cocaine has pleaded guilty to trying to hire a hit man to rob and kill four men.

Jessica Sandy Booth, 18, was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Authorities said Booth hatched the plot after visiting the intended victims' home and mistaking fresco -- a white, crumbly cheese common in Mexican cuisine -- for cocaine. That inspired the idea to hire someone to break into the home, take the drugs and kill the men.

The hit man she hired turned out to be an undercover police officer.

Booth planned to take part in the murders, and went with the officer to buy a handgun, authorities said. She told investigators that she planned to make sure all possible witnesses were killed. Booth pleaded guilty Monday to four counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Oscars are "bitching" about one word

There will be no F-word but the word "bitches" will be heard during the first-ever rap performance at the Academy Awards Sunday.

At the request of the Academy and ABC, which is broadcasting the Oscars show, the authors of best song nominee "It's Hard Out There for a Pimp" from the film "Hustle & Flow" have substituted less offensive words for the song's profanity-laced lyrics.

"As long as the Academy approves it, it's cool," said rapper Jordan "Juicy J" Houston, a member of Three 6 Mafia, which wrote the song for the film and will be performing it.

But he said he was told by actress Taraji P. Henson, who performed the song in the film, and will sing onstage with Three 6 Mafia, that the show's producers were letting her keep the word "bitches," in the chorus. "Taraji said the Academy told her she can say 'bitches,'" said Houston.

A spokesman for Gil Cates, the producer of the Oscars telecast, confirmed that the word "bitches" was not one of the words changed by the nominated artists.
In another flap over lyrics a few years ago, actor-comedian Robin Williams performed a cleaned-up version of "Blame Canada" the off-color, Oscar-nominated song from the animated "South Park" movie during the Oscars telecast, replacing the f-word with a lesser f-word that means an expulsion of intestinal gas.

…I would post more of this article, but who the f*ck cares. Honestly? Profanity is like a part of everyday conversation. I realize this may ‘degrade the reputation’ of the Oscars, but there is no need to get all bent out of shape about it. If the song that is being nominated has a ‘bad word in it’ let them say it. You don’t have to write-up a pointless two page story justifying the Oscar’s actions. Read the full article here.
