    I'm going to get a bunch of kids together, and we're going to punch people in the face until they donate a total of $3000 to Hurricane Relief. What? It's for a good cause.
  4. Hey they did this last year at my highschool who copied a neighbouring highschool, they copied us who copied them! Anyways it didn't work in my school except a few student council members got hit during lunch breaks.

    man, good thing it didn't back fire on the students whose idea it was in this story.

    i just imagine a nelson-from-the-simpsons-type wailing away, while giving an out of character well-reasoned explanation as to the failure of their cause and why it necessitated the beating.

    but maybe that's just cuz it's midnight and i'm kinda out of it... :D

    That's just kinda wrong, I think. That is cruel and unusual, even if it IS for a good cause.
  8. Cruel and unusual punishment.

    I think there's something about that in the Constitution. And if I remember correctly, it directly references that MMMBop Hanson song. I might be wrong.
  9. they should've played some fieldy bass solo

    That isn't cruel, that's extorsion. I'd fine the school for supporting such practices.

    That's the word I was looking for. Extortion. Forcing someone to pay money by pressuring them is extortion. This is for a good cause, but the ends don't justify the means.
  14. Agreed. I would not donate, out of principle.

    "Thanks for the day off!"

    ......and left school for the day.
  16. I'd come to school with a Hanson shirt on, and start singing along. That would piss 'em off.
