Ha, I hope not - she's a college student - at MIT. Have you seen the tuition costs there? And they don't give academic scholarships to attract students Really, from the person that brought us http://www.instructables.com/id/Go-l...ates---Part-1/

What I'm finding freakin great is the media shenanigans. This morning, it was announced she answered all of the police's questions etc. Now, the story has changed that she didn't (despite video of the investigator saying "she answered all of our questions").

Media garbage bothered me before... But this is just closer to home

Haha, I find it funny you mentioned no academic scholarships, . Like MIT needs to attract anyone...when I was visiting the school someone asked about it and they said "we can't give everyone money for being smart because then we'd just have to charge more for tuition."

I doubt tuition there pays for more than half of the educational costs per student...At dartmouth tuition only pays for 32% of expenses. I feel like I'm getting a pretty good deal, usually,

But damn, it's expensive.

Your friend got on NBC nightly news. "She's luckily to be alive." "If you know anyone affected today, you can blame Star Simpson (big picture of her face)."

Yea there should not have been anything wrong with wearing that "art" even it was really really sad looking.

The problem is it had a battery, wires and looked very improvised. Both plug right into the limited shoot on site training the screeners at airports have. Its like wearing an artful pork chop around your neck and walking into a pen full of hungry pit bulls, duh, not a good idea.
Unfortunately, common sense is often lost on youth, even more so on really intelligent youth. Don't get caught up in the wrong or right, just learn to think what might happen well before you do something. Keep you alive it will.
