There are easier ways for a guy to get out of gym class, many of which will not result in spending time in Juvie.

If only all terrorists were this smart.

Next time tell the teacher you read some books, genius.

Did they actually say that "Smyrna is a booming bedroom community..."?

Choice words indeed!

So when I was in high school, back in the days when boys weren't expected to be safe, I had a chemistry teacher... Having a class full of rambunctious teenaged boys he invited some of us out to his farm. Where he taught us how to make plastic explosive. Then he had us partially dig up a bunch of stumps in a field he'd recently acquired, wrap the roots in the homemade plastique, and showed us how to use det caps. Lots of fun.

Wore us out, and got his field cleared (for free!) without working up a sweat. Smart man...

"Okay, students, take out your t#rr!sm books and go to page 113."

Thank God it wasn't Show and Tell.

Nice story, Wiredog. It's good none of the kids bought the farm.

"I cannot tell a lie. I blew up a cherry tree with my little pipe bomb."

I live in Nashville and am not far from Smyrna. It is a booming bedroom community, with about every restaurant franchise under the sun.

It's stories like this that make me so proud to say I live in Tennessee.

I bet this means he bombed his algebra test the next day....
