Stupid Things I Heard About Lately.

*People suing amusement parks and the comapnies who built the rides when people fall out of them, e.g. roller coasters. It pisses me off because we don't build perfect things. Stuff breaks. Hello, you're voluntarily getting on something that flings you around at high speeds with a freakin' metal bar keeping you in. I think you waive your right to be mad about getting hurt.

*High schools giving the title of valedictorian to every student with over a 4.0 - in one case, there were 39 valedictorians. Unfortunately, I would have missed it by half a grade point. :-(

*More and more about sports leagues and schools rewarding every member of a team or group, so nobody feels left out. There are no more MVPs, no more stars. We can't have anyone feeling bad about their lack of achievement, so lets tear down those that actually do achieve. Hello, what is the point of even trying to excel in anything if Johnny Numbnuts over there gets the same award as you for riding the bench. Seriously, the lesson here is "don't ever try."

Stupid people. Cassie knows how I feel about that, heh.

"These are the 39 valedoctorians, but here's the REAL valedictorian."

It must suck for the first real one, in the year that that nonsense was implemented. That just cheapens the title.
