The International Baccalaureate Program is an organization dedicated to the predation of young minds through manipulation and psycological brainwashing. It corrupts students into believing that they are part of a priviledged and elite society of more intelligent beings and raises its own prestige by forcing students to commit to nineteen hour work days, thereby causing parents to believe that the massive and unreasonable amount of travail must equate with a higher education. This in turn deters the ordinarily rational parents from protesting when asked to pay absurd amounts of money for exams that their children grow to despise. It is not until their fourth year in this fraudulent program that the participants realize that this course has no effect on the colleges to which they intend to apply. By this time, the student has already dedicated thousands of hours to this corporation (doubt not that it is indeed a corporation) and human nature insists that they complete the program.
Its long, unpronounceable and un-spellable name only adds to its supposed prominence.
In short, this institution is designed to swindle valuable money and time away from its members by exploiting competitive young adults.

|59.||Noble and Greenough School|
A private school in Dedham, MA, whose student body is not immune to the entitled nature that plagues many students at other ISL schools. That said, the students at Nobles have many redeeming qualities, including a "Noble" competitive spirit that compels them not to stoop to the same levels as some other students in the ISL. Although a rivalry with Milton Academy exists, it is generally the Milton students that resort to un-sportsman-like conduct (we, however, are intelligent enough to understand the irony of this statement).more...
There is a large population of preppy people at Nobles, as is to be expected, and though definite social cliques do exist, there are some who find it possible to socialize with members of all social divisions. They are unspeakably chill individuals.
While the school has an obvious bias towards sports, and it seems that all of the self-dubbed "popular" people play sports, the administration is attempting to shift this focus by building a new arts center. Only time will tell what happens to the social aspect of this sports focus.
The school is occasionally (well, often) accused of being too politically correct, but honestly, one would find that anywhere. Teachers, as a general rule, are very liberal. After all, teachers do not make money, and it is really only the disgustingly wealthy or the grossly uneducated that become Republicans. Suffice it t...
Townies are a variation on chavs.more...
Most lack Wit and intelligence - and as such will be instantly stunned like a shark hit in the nose by an intelligent witty reply or long words, for example; idiosyncratic, esoteric, daetal, tympanic, incandescant. another example (one of a witty remark) would be (and i quote from real life experiances occured by fellow people) "your hair is too long, Blood, why don't you get a hair cut you 'cunt'" "at least my hair colour is the same as my eyebrows" for those who do not understand the cultural reference here, it is between bleach blonde dyed hairanother remark would be "at least i HAVE hair" or "im not going to take fashion advice from someone with no hair at all" this cultural reference is to do with the majority of "skin heads" within townie society.
All townies i have known who do have enough intelligence to get an A grade in any subject (and possibly head off towards a carreer involving more pay than slave wages), have failed due to the stereotypical lifestyle.
The majority of Townies/Chavs will take the outside of your local macdonalds as their very...
Unfortunately part of the United Kingdom since 1707. Scotland is a small, underpopulated yet beautiful country of 5 million souls. Not all however are strictly scottish due to mass emigration forced and voluntary and mass immigration, mostly Irish. Scotlands indigineous people were celtic. One original tribe, the "picts" and the other the "scoti" (originally from Ireland) their two royal families intermarried and created a united Scotland. The lifestyle of the picts was retained i.e tartan whereas the language of the scoti became dominant gadhlig or scottish gaelic as it is now known. Scotland has been proven to be almost completely unconquerable with its mountainess landscape and fierce natives. The Romans could only invade about 2/5 of scotland and the english, however hard or often they tried could never get a decent foothold on this great land and were always eventually repelled. Scotland was sold down the river by its nobles and joined with England to form the UK. England had tried building an Empire before the union but had made a hash of it. With Scotland on board they got somewhere due to oh lets see. 1. Use of what many consider to be the best soldiers in the world (the English are now so jealous they want to disband the scottish regiments and merge them into one).more...

|62.||40 reasons to support gun control|
Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, and Chicago cops need guns.more...
Washington DC's low murder rate of 80.6 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Arlington, VA's high murder rate of 1.6 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.
Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics."
The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994, are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991.
We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.
The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.
When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense — give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125).
The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns and Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.
One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seatbelts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon ...
Indie kids are witty, intelligent kids that wear vintage clothing and like to differ from the norm. I'm not going to give examples of what they wear, because that pretty much defeats the purpose. They wear what they want, and don't give a shit what you think.
Indies are generally happy people, mainly because their music makes you feel like spinning around in a cirle while a smiling man in a white suit throws confetti at you. Indies are very un-emo due to this, and are constantly waging a war with the over-styled emo masses due to the fact that emos stole Converse.
Their attitudes are fickle, and can be passed off as pretentious or rude if you don't get to know them. The guy or girl that stands out and acts like he's better than you, occasionally throwing out a sarcastic comment or two, will usually just be a shy indie not used to being around the wave of pop-culture-people.
Pop-kid: Look at her, she's such a bitch.
Pop-kid 2.0: I know. What's her problem?
Indie Guy: Lay off, she's just a shy Indie Kid.
