NJ school district bans indebted students from prom and field trips, refuses offer to pay off lunch debt
Poor elementary/middle/high school students who can't afford lunch to be publicly humiliated and ridiculed.
It's not about the money, either; they refused donations to pay for it.
Public shaming will continue as long as students insist on simply deciding not to be poor.
So @HonorableThief bought me this poster for my birthday and it couldn't be more on brand
Idea: tandem bike but middle handlebars removed and seats modified so taurs can ride them
@piebald is that a playstation thing or
oh wait I get it
@Amphy it true!
@Zeny Yes, this was well before graphics or graphic interfaces or even my first steps on the web. My interface was a 80x25 text mode screen, with the most online thing I could do was email. Which only sent/received once a day. So it could be 2-3 days before I could expect a reply.
And the game I played most often I actually turned off color so it would run faster.
@Zeny My first dial-up was 2400 bps, less than half of that! :D
I didn't see the point of anything faster at the time though, because even with ansi color codes text still came through just slightly faster than I could read it.
And with good transfer protocols I could download a whole floppy disk worth of content in about an hour and a half!

Rats can learn to drive tiny cars around an arena in exchange for a food reward. Their hormone levels suggest they seem to find going for a drive relaxing
