Right, where the eff do they recruit teachers from these days? The local asylum? Seems this dipstick made this very announcement (http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20041119/od_afp/britain_education_meteor_041119000654) at morning assembly. She didn't stop there, telling the kids to go home and say goodbye to their families??? WTF? She must have gone to the Sado School of Motivation...

Well, apart from the 10 day claim, she's probably right. It's happened before (just ask my pal T. Rex) and it'll happen again...

Hopefully, by the time it does happen, humanity will have sorted out its petty little differences and gotten the f**k off this stinky little rock we call Earth. Send us all to Mars- at least there's plenty of chocolate to eat....

Catholic school eh, I suppose the teacher will have to do 100 hail marys and 500 our fathers for that little porky.....:p

Oh well, I suppose instant death is better than a lifetime of loan repayments (bloomin' expensive business, flying)

These children are lucky, they now know that adults can be big fibbers. They will also look back on this episode and laugh about it :rolleyes: These are the happiest days of their lives!

"these are the happiest days of their lives"
Ha, ha, you sick man, their at a catholic school you loon, whats happy about that.
Most friends of mine who went to catholic schools spent their time sh1tting themselves in case the priest caught them smoking, drinking or summat else. They weren't best happy about the experience.

I'd put good money on it that what was actually said bears little resemblance to what's reported in the press.

Gonna happen one day though - and when it does, we'd be lucky to get ten days' warning.

Thread Slingshot! Is this find anywhere near where some French explorer was supposed to have found a huge iron Meteorite in the 1800's?
Back to thread I suppose that this is a new twist on the Judgement day/ Apocalypse thing they usually use to scare the banjanx out of the little bleeders. ;)

I don't think so, this is in Egypt, whereas the iron meteorite was supposed to be in Mauritania (this webpage (http://www.meteoriteman.com/collection/chinguetti.htm) says the mystery was solved)

Huh? In Yankee reckoning, the week goes Monday through Sunday. This is Friday, so eight days from now is Saturday of the week after this one, ie next week. Nu?

One must admit that said Catholic school i currently attend has to be one of the worst in the entire county for the very problems you mention ;) Even Teachers have been seen to be buying booze on occasion :p (I should know, recieved various complimentary Guinness the other day...at 2.80 a pint you can be damned sure i'm not paying :D ):p
