Lord of the flies: [Apr. 6th, 2009|06:32 am]

"Edlington is a mining community which will always be a close knit community. People do help one another... "

Councillor Georgina Mullis, who represents Edlington and Warmsworth ward, appears to be ignorant of the youth growing up there:

"Local residents told BBC News they believed the two boys (aged 9 and 11) had been hit with a brick, slashed with a knife and burned with cigarettes."

"Two boys, aged 10 and 11, were arrested on nearby allotments, police said."

If this is what gets noticed - imagine the low level violence that doesn't get reported everyday.
It's just an isolated incident, right?

Four in 10 teachers have faced verbal or physical aggression from a pupil's parent or guardian, according to the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.

Bad manners and violence seem to be snowballing with each new generation.
I wonder what the next 100 years will bring?

Life's a game! (Post in ya blog!) [Apr. 6th, 2009|06:55 am]

Someone once said to me "Treat life as a game..."
Over time I've realised it was very shocking and accurate comment.

Slightly less seriously: if life is a game, what game or games is it?



My answer:

Shorter term: Mouse trap, hungry hippo, chess.
Long term: Risk
