    All of these weird and controversial things never happen at my school.. they`re so interesting.

    My middle school did have a molestation/rape case, but that`s not too... rare.. anymore.

    i have to ask a question why does think there better then America? i mean were no gem i wont say that but every country has there own draw backs.

    On topic
    This is sad that a teacher had to resort to this to get paper for there tests. Its also sad how everyone wants America schools to get better but there not willing to pay for it. Glad i am out of high school. Granted my college isn`t doing to much better either lol.

    @quaintness - you are right who cares, better to fund wars. And it has benefits, when peoples turn into a bunch of total retards with no sort of education, it`s much easier to get them butchered in some country far far away. There is less protest.

    Zazuch - Dude the US Gov released hundreds of billiard through the fed to help the liquidity of the markets, i.e. it hugely increased its debt. Equally, billiards are spent every month in Iraq/Afghanistan. So WTF are you talking about the US Gov not able to fund highschools??? Education is a long term asset.

    Very smart idea. Genius. I was expecting something more along the lines of the product somehow being placed within the problem. But it`s perfect, because students barely take notice of the ads, because it`s only 1-2 lines of text.

    Still, this does emphasize the bad state of funding for education. I can definitely feel this effect, having to pay for everything I do and so many teachers resorting to online resources (which is a bit annoying).

    I think a lot of the school funding problems would be solved by teaching the administration how to actually SAVE money and not spend it on useless crap. As an example, the local grade school bought 12 `smart` boards (Like these) for approximately $600 each. They never connected them to anything, they are just using them as regular dry erase boards! When asked about them, they said they `had to have them to remain competitive`. So with total incompetence like like that as well as dwindling federal money, it`s no surprise that our schools are failing.

    I was expecting like a bigass banner right above question 1, much like a website. I suppose the way they did it is much better. But I would have thought the army/marines would have been all over that, I can see "be all you can be" at the bottom of the pages.

    The exam cover sheet could double as an enlistment form.

    And one of the questions would be "Are you looking for love? Go to ___****www.lousydatingsite.com___@** and find your true love today!"

    There are three coca cola cans, all equally filled. Their weight all together adds up to 1800ml. If you added another can, then drank the other three cans, how refreshed would you be?

    you are driving a bus that has three people on it. At the first stop two people get on. At the next stop three more people get on and four get off. On the fifth stop you have three extra people on the bus. With two more getting on. On the sixth stop everyone gets off. What was the bus drivers name?

    And it was barely an advert. A tiny bit of text at the bottom of the page, saying it is psonsored by a building society. Not exactly gonna get the kids buying. Idiots.

    Agree with lukas1051, it`s not really an advert, it`s a company sponsoring the paper ... sad that this is necessary but at least the teacher found a way how to cope with the budget cuts.
