That's basically what the school officials at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City said. Starve might be a little harsh but whatever! Man those square pizzas used to be the business!!! Up to 40 kids at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City picked up their lunches Tuesday, then watched as the meals were taken and thrown away because of outstanding balances on their accounts — a move that shocked and angered parents. "It was pretty traumatic and humiliating," said Erica Lukes, whose 11-year-old daughter had her cafeteria lunch taken from her as she stood in line Tuesday at Uintah Elementary School, 1571 E. 1300 South. Lukes said as far as she knew, she was all paid up. "I think it’s despicable," she said. "These are young children that shouldn’t be punished or humiliated for something the parents obviously need to clear up." Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, said the district’s child-nutrition department became aware that Uintah had a large number of students who owed money for lunches. As a result, the child-nutrition manager visited the school and decided to withhold lunches to deal with the issue, he said. But cafeteria workers weren’t able to see which children owed money until they had already received lunches, Olsen explained. The [...]
You read that right. In September, Rep. Trey Radel voted for Republican legislation that would allow states to make food stamp recipients pee in cups to prove they're not on drugs. In October, police busted the Florida Republican on a charge of cocaine possession. “It’s really interesting it came on the heels of Republicans voting on everyone who had access to food stamps get drug tested," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told BuzzFeed Tuesday. "It’s like, what?” We previously had this conversation on OHN a while back. I personally have no problem with there being drug testing on people who use state and federal funds - which includes congressmen and senators. However, those congressmen and senators don't appear to want to drug test themselves. So I guess we just keep paying them while they're snorting up our funds like Mr. Radel, while making people who actually need funds jump through hoops to get them and at the same time wasting even more of our money: Florida passed the measure in 2011, and the case was being closely watched by several other states, including Georgia, which passed similar legislation in 2013 but found it dogged by legal challenges. State [...]
We can all agree that World Star Videos are awful, right? Well, I came across this video on my Tumblr. Just popped up on my feed and had never seen it before. I've blacked out (or ReD'd out) some of the image because it's extremely NSFW. So be warned. But if you want to watch it...and it's absolutely ABSURD, folks. Watch it here: http://bit.ly/1iTF0Hh Now that you've watched it, you might be interested in the conversation it spurned between Slaus and I: \ Now that you've seen what WE had to say, what do YOU think about this video?
In you should not laugh but you’re going to anyway news: Teenager paid £450 for Xbox One on eBay, got sent photo of one instead
and for those that don't know £450 is roughly 700 American bones! A young father who paid £450 for what he thought was an Xbox One on eBay was sent a photo of the new console instead. Peter Clatworthy, 19, had saved up all year to buy the Microsoft console – which is now sold out – for his four-year-old son. But days after paying for the Day One edition of the games system he received a grainy photo of one in the post, which, to add insult to injury, the seller had written ‘thank you for your purchase’ on the back of. When he went back to the listing, Mr Clatworthy realised it had advertised ‘Xbox One Fifa Day One Edition, Photo Brand New UK 2013?, despite featuring an image of the console and being listed under the ‘video games and consoles category’. The teenager, from Bilborough, Nottinghamshire, said he was ‘absolutely gutted’ despite being given a full refund from eBay, which said it would take action against the seller as misleading listings are not allowed. ‘I told my brother and he was crying with laughter, so were all of my mates, it is quite embarrassing,’ he said. ‘Even my mum said I was a bit stupid considering it said it [...]
I swear I need better friends on facebook! So yesterday I'm browsing my newsfeed and I see this status: Ok so once upon a time there was a sweet young lady who worked at this one place. There was another chic at that same place that had gastric bypass a year ago or so and something went terribly wrong as she lost the ability to hold her shyt and now she shyts all over the office, on the carpet, in the sink, in her cube and her shyt has a horrible nauseatingly gross smell that reeks of infection... well that sweet young lady is sick of smelling this chick's shyt and wishes she would retire or get a colostomy bag or something... eww. The end. *blinks* At first I thought another facebook game. You know the ones if you like or comment on some crazy status you have to post one on your own page. Then I read the comments and come to find out this is true. My facebook friend is the "sweet young lady" who works with the shytter. It wasn't even noon yet and I'm reading this foolishness! I know we've seen many pics, weird news articles posted on our friends' facebook pages but I want to know about [...]
