Today NPR carried a story on schools being purposely contaminated by mercury by unruly students (trying to shut down the school). I had to laugh. When I was in 7th grade I went to a school that was so bad that in my science class:

- our teacher poured mercury in our hands so we could play with it.
- we didn't have text books for six weeks so we read the Star War novel instead.
- a prize exhibit was an ascaris worm in a bottle of alcohol that had crawled out of someone's nose in a previous class.

How I managed to survive and go off to college is a miracle.
