Spurgeon, a busy little beaver today, also links to a counterpoint to the story of the kids who were arrested for drawing stick figures.
This is a case of a substitute teacher being fired because the media caught news (possibly through the sub?) about a comic strip depicting "her brutal death". Haha!, says Superblog!! Serves you right for being a teacher.
And then there's this:
Imitating events in the manga series Death Note, Chinese school students in the city of Shenyang have take to writing death notes. The students buy special stationary and follow instructions such as "Write the cause of death and the person's name backwards and the person will die in 40 seconds."
That sounds like a cool game. Let's play it right now:
RUN OVER BY TRUCK - ymmaS elcnU
DROWNING IN A POOL OF HIS OWN FECES - evoR lraK
HIT BY COMET - gnaselguF retsirhC
ELECTROCUTION - redaer raed, uoY
It is to laugh.
