High Schools are the New Prison? You Decide.

We have all seen the posts on social media showing how the elderly have a life worse than convicts. While I trust that to be true, has anyone ever thought how the school system is set up like a prison? The new Academies are square blocks of concrete, with no charm. But more worrying is what goes on inside them. Let’s have a look at some of the regulations that high schools now have.

WATER.

In the U.K. we are experiencing record heat temperatures and not just for a day either. I know this is not normal weather behaviour for us Brits. But I thought that having water was a basic human right. It must be, because if you can’t pay your water bill, legally they can’t cut it off.

10 Amazing Jobs You Dreamed of as a Kid?

1 Astronaut.

“10,10. 9,9. 8,8. 7,7. and so on. BLAST OFFFFFF! The actions are not too dissimilar to the racing car driver. The difference being you have two arms stretched out above your head pointing up to the sky. Your fists parallel and clenched. When you need to talk to your crew, you have to do this with a hand over mouth Darth Vader impression.

The Hunger Games Guide to the New M.O.T. Rules.

There is a Place Where M.O.T.’s do not Exist.

You know when his eyes popped out and his jaw hit the floor. “What do you mean you don’t have M.O.T.’s?” I asked with a direct glare. While she sat there all smug explaining how she brought her car over to “the mainland.” To you and me, that is the U.K., and her Brother had pointed out how bald her tyres were. She panicked a little, not much, but a teeny tiny amount because she was now in England.Read More »
