If you had the opportunity, what bill would you present to Congress?
Seniors in my high school, such as myself, each need to write a bill to propose to a mock congress of our peers. I originally planned to write my bill suggesting limiting the use of mobile telephones because of their possible threat to already vanishing bee colonies, but that theory seems to have been refuted by many sources. Any other ideas you could throw my way?
(Pro-choice is overdone, legalizing prostitution has been done. I was considering a pro-veganism type thing, by suggesting a gradual elimination of animal agriculture, but I don't know how to carry that out.)
Issues to consider:
- What are the requirements?
- How will people be stopped from reproducing without a license?
- How will this affect overpopulation/child abuse/homelessness/a whole lot of other issues?
It's 3:30am and I just returned from a failed attempt to toilet paper my high school before the first day of school, a tradition that the seniors have accomplished every year. What stopped us? Police out in full force, like they'd never been before. And these cops were mean. Shouting things like, "We're going to fucking kill you!", tackling a running girl to the ground, letting us all off but giving my friend a ticket for expired inspection. It was absurd.
So. Are all cops power-crazed assholes, or only the ones in my area?
When I was nine years old, my grandmother took me to get my ears pierced.
On Saturday, I went to St. Mark's to get my nose pierced.
This is me before my nose ring, eating a carrot and waiting for a bus:
And this is me after my nose ring, coming home at 6:30am (no, I don't usually wear glasses, I was going to bed):
So, what do you think? I love it, and although no opinion will change my mind, I'm just curious about what the public sentiment is.
I was watching "The Dark Knight," eating popcorn, and drinking hot chocolate during a major thunderstorm today when I thought I'd suggest the Joker's social experiment to y'all.
If the only way to save yourself and a ferry full of civilians like yourself was to blow up a ferry full of convicted criminals, would you blow them up?
