If we follow the logic of NORML, any illegal activity that people do often should be legalized, then hot white teachers having sex with teens should not only be allowed, but encouraged. Cases in point:

  • "Former Kearny High School English teacher Celeste Adamski has pled guilty to one count of official misconduct, and as part of a plea agreement, will never teach again, The Observer has learned. Adamski also admitted to having sexual intercourse with one of her students, who was 17 at the time." Source
  • Jessica Ashley Kahal, 22, a former female music teacher and band director at Helix High School was arrested for having sex with a 17-year-old student. Source

What say we pass a law requiring hot 22 year old teachers to hit their 17 year old students. Think of the self-esteem boost!

Having trouble staying focused at work? Why spend thousands of dollars on a drug to cure your ADD when you use these ten comebacks provided by MSN for FREE?

    1. "I'm not going to dignify that with a response!"
    2. "Whoa, I just had one of my psychic realizations: someone in this room is embezzling money!"
    3. "What did you say about my wife!?" They will quickly repeat the question.
    4. Raise your index finger to your lips and say, "Shhh, let's all just listen with our hearts for a moment. I think the answer will become obvious."
    5. "I must have answered this question a hundred times in the last month! Doesn't anybody listen anymore?"
    6. Act as if you are silently falling in love with the person waiting for your response.
    7. Act as if you are going to respond, then pause to reconsider your response. Repeat for hours on end until quitting time.
    8. Hang your head and say, "What difference does it make? We're all going to die anyway!"
    9. "That may be true. Or not. What do you think, Ed?"
    10. "I didn't hear your question; I zoned out. I was a million miles away. Which brings up a greater issue: what are we going to do to liven up these lame meetings?"

A friend of mine sent me this email:

Help!! I just exchanged links with a guy and he has asked the following:
Many thanks for the link. But I have a request,please shift my link to the page having at least PR-2 i.e please shift my link to this page [redacted]
What on earth is a PR-2? Queenie

I don't pretend to have all the answers, but people think I do. Here's what I replied:

Google "Page Rank."

The guy wants a link from your higher ranked front page rather than your unranked link page (which I seem not to be on, I notice).

The theory is that his page will be ranked higher in Google's Page Rank if the link comes from a page with a higher number. Fer instance, my events blog has a page rank of 3. By me linking to you, that theoretically boosts your page rank. The corollary to that theory is that links from an unranked page reduces the page rank of the page that is linked to.

To put it another way: If you hang around with the popular kids, you are popular. But if you hang around with the nerds, well, you aren't.

I don't put much stock in it, myself. Google periodically adjusts its page rank system. I used to have a page rank of 4. Then they did something and I went down to 3. GHS has a page rank of 4 on the front page. None of the property pages rank at all.

Another ranking system is Alexa. GHS has an Alexa rating of 665,005. You are unranked there. My events blog is ranked 14. What does that mean? Beats the shit out of me.

Your response should be "I have removed you from the links page. Cheers!" or "All outgoing links go on the 'Links' page." He doesn't dictate your website design.

Have another question with a longwinded answer?

Does anyone have any insight into the whys and wherefores of Google Page Rank?
