    Seriously, as much as I deplore the administration of these schools for acting the way they are towards the students, the students deserve what they're getting. Not so much for what they're doing, but for being fucking stupid enough to post the details of their wacky hijinks on the Internet where ANYONE AND THEIR DOG CAN READ IT.

    So, bets on how long it is before someone who has 'cunningly' flipped their account to friends-only gets sold out by one of their friends handing over printouts? 'Janie called me a hobag skank, so I'm giving Principal McVicker hardcopy of the part of her Livejournal where she talks about being sucking off the entire football team in the cafeteria while drunk!'

    Fucking hell. Grade-A morons, all of them.

    Well I didnt find the instance of the chearleader locally..
    But heres a very similar story..

    Freshman Bryana Ruest said her mother made her delete the account after her cousin was kicked off the Salem High School cheerleading team when photos of team members drinking alcohol went public last month.

    Aparrently its a common thing going on.

    was this cheerleader posting stories about sex that occurred inside of the school? was she making the posts from school computers? if not then it's none of the school's goddamn business. it's like a town in my area where the police department and the school district work in cahoots with each other... anytime an under-age party is broken up by the cops, all the names are taken down and then given to the principal. the kids who get caugh partying on weekends not only have to deal with the criminal penalties (and of course their parents' own punishment) but then get suspensions or other disciplinary action once they show up at school on monday, as well. ridiculous, i think.

    ok, rant over. we now return you to your regularly-scheduled thread.
    I'm quite sure that students can't be suspended for such an offense. They should have taken it to the court, I would...

    The school district here pretty much hates myspace.com. I believe earlier this year an instructor kicked a cheerleader off a highschool team for posting tales of her sexual rendezvous.

    More recently a school of 3000 had only a few hundred students show up for class after a columbine style rumor was posted.
    News Story


    Anyhow.. back on topic.. Im wondering with the parking being open to anyone.. if the place is going to fill up. This year should be interesting.

    What I find the most amusing is when clearly under-age boys and girls post pictures of themselves consuming alcohol and smoking marijuana to be cool and then never see it coming when they get in trouble.

    More disturbing than the lack of anything resembling English is the lack of anything resembling legibility. Blue text on a blue image background with a million JPEGs and animated GIFs scattered bloody everywhere for no apparent reason whatsoever.

    I recall someone linking me to their page, to which I responded "Oh, so THAT'S what happens when teletubbies explode!"

    That person stopped talking to me after I said that :)

    Don't. Just don't. You clearly speak English, so you have no excuse for not using it correctly. This SMS-speak bullshit does not fly around here (check some other threads if you don't believe me), and is not tolerated. Hell, there's even a section in The Rules covering this, which, had you read them, you'd be aware of:

    5. Abbreviated English, ‘SMS’-speak, or ‘leet-speak
    This is a forum full of real live people who interact with each other as normal people should. Do not treat posts on this forum like the text messages you send on your phone. The official language on this board is English. If you want to be taken seriously you need to communicate clearly. Now, some of our users aren’t native English speakers. This is fine. If you don’t speak English, do your best and people will help you. The people this section is directed to are the people that make posts like ‘ne1 evr heer ov a hack 2 break teh windoze? LOL’. Its embarrassing when users from eastern Europe come here and speak better English than 16 year old High School students from Illinois. Also, how you type is your only way to put any sort of personality into your posts. ‘if u type lik diz’ you are basically saying ‘I am dumb, please do not pay any attention to me, in fact please ban me as soon as possible since I bring nothing to the table’. If you type like a big boy, you will be treated like one. Oh, and contrary to popular beliefs AlTeRnAtInG CaPs are not the sure way to fame.


    It pisses me off that people can't type the two extra characters required to properly complete the word 'you'. Oh, and there's no 'f' in the word 'with'. You're not on a baudot teletype; waste the bandwidth for the sake of not making yourself look like a moron.

    I've parked many times in the Riviera's self-parking structure. I've never had to pay a cent for it.

    Ah, I had not considered non-strip hotels. Downtown hotels I can see doing that, but not the Riviera (and other 'strip' hotels).

    To clarify my statement; I've never seen a *Strip* hotel charge for parking

    When I went to a downtown hotel/casino as a non-paying-guest, (Frontier? 4 Queens? Over around there IIRC) I parked in a parking structure that was "free" if validated.
    Validation only required going to a desk to get someone to stamp a card, but if you did not do this, it was not free.

    Also, added tacitus statement on risk for no free parking to the unofficial expected frequently asked questions (faq).

    I once parked in one of those parking lots while waiting for someone and the parking attendant wanted money from me on the spot. Seems Vegas does have it's seedy section.
