Miss Cellania's Comments

After clicking through several pages, I found the terms and conditions. Just as I thought, they are paying ONE person £1,000, and getting hundreds of boob pictures to publish anytime.

The Promoter reserves the right to publish entries (including parts of entries) other than the winning entry and publication does not necessarily mean the entrant has won a prize.
Entrants will retain copyright in their submitted entries, however, by entering, all entrants licence the Promoter a worldwide royalty-free perpetual licence to edit, publish and use each entry in any and all media (including print and online) for publicity and news purposes.


The entries they've published so far all say "© Not known" even when the entrant is holding the camera. They deserve to be trolled.

I wouldn't expel a student because he wasn't good enough to get into college. I'm sure that a 100% record is great for keeping a charter, but it doesn't do much good for those students who didn't get to graduate with their high school class.

While the work at this school is commendable, you have to remember it's a charter school. It isn't easy to get in, so you need a supportive family to even try. And charter schools expel more students than public schools.

At Urban Prep Academies, which annually boasts a nearly perfect college acceptance rate, more than 3 percent of the student body was expelled during the last school year at three campuses. At district-run schools, just over 0.05 percent of the student body was expelled last year.

Not surprising. A lot of the qualities that declined only did so because other qualities rose. The top few can be explained by the modern notion that you should love your spouse. Desire for home and children rose because it used to be a given instead of an option. Other factors that rose up only did so because the importance of chastity declined drastically.

I did not know that about high blood pressure, but it does explain "playing possum." I'd always heard it was a defense mechanism, but a terribly ineffective one, considering all the roadkill.

I've done some pretty harsh things with my kids like this, even cancelled a birthday party once. But I always talked to them and gave them the chance to do the right thing first. My motto: "You can learn this the easy way or the hard way." Take my advice right now or suffer the consequences.

The town I grew up in still doesn't have legal alcohol sales. After 40 years of referendums, my current hometown finally got liquor by the drink about 15 years ago. That meant that restaurants that seated over 100 people within the city limits could apply for a limited number of liquor licenses. But your sales had to stay at least 50% food to keep it. That meant cheap liquor and the most expensive food people would keep paying for. Years later, we got liquor stores and I think the restaurant rules may have eased, because the city is making tons of money now.

My local hospital demands a co-payment before surgery, or at least a credit card number they can hold. Yeah, they send out survey sheets afterward about your experience, but the idea of a refund would never come into it.
