Schools get responsive and responsible
Principals ban students from participating in reality shows after quizmaster's letter
By Rashmi Menon
Quizmaster Derek O'Brien has been writing to schools around the city expressing his concern over students' participation in reality shows. He says that some of US's biggest reality shows like Survivor, American Idol and Big Brother have a specified age limit. In fact, the minimum age to enter American Idol is 16 years, he says.
After Sunday MiD DAY reported (SMD, July 6) quizmaster Derek O'Brien's plan to send letters to city-based schools requesting them to discourage students from participating in reality shows, around 345 schools have received the letters. They include Champion school, Maneckji Cooper Education Trust, Utpal Shanghvi, Bombay Scottish and The Cathedral and John Cannon School in Mumbai. And O'Brien has received responses from many, with some banning student participation in such shows outright.
So is the government going look into this issue? Leena Mehendale, member secretary of the state Child Rights Protection Commission, says that once the commission members are appointed, perhaps it will look into forming some guidelines. "The 'I must win' spirit is good but it should not be made as a life and death situation," says Mehendale.

In other matters I have discovered a centuries old plot to subconsciously subvert (here we go again) subway travelling substitutes. Have you ever wondered why in chess white always plays first?? Its because it was created by white-supremacists! All these years innocent grandmasters, amateurs and whatever comes in between have been happily playing away while their minds are being slowly but surely TURNED TO THE DARK (what?) sorry LIGHT SIDE!! *gasps of fear* Stop this outrage and sing a petition against chess HERE!Go sign that petition for me and all the chess players out there.
PS To JRR Tolkiens estate: Please don't sue I was just joking!

Was Tolkien secretly plotting to subconsciously subvert the minds of subway eating substitutes? (I hate alliteration:this is my revenge!) Was he secretly a member of the Ku Klux Klan?? Did he secretly send people orange pips? (you don't read Sherlock Holmes?? Shame on you!) Was his biasment (word?) of Orcs actually a plot to convert innocent readers into KKK recruits? Find out on the next episode of Lastresort Z!!
PS You'll only understand that last joke if you are into overly violent, amazingly lame cartoons for 10 year olds. Look it up bub.

A brief history of paper clips
OK here it is... What you have all been waiting for... It is... PAPER CLIPS!
The most common paper clip that we use was never patented but it was most likely made in Britain in the 1880s by "The Gem Manufacturing Company" according to Henry J Petroski.
Johan Vaaler, a Norwegian attained patents in Norway and in America for a less practical paper clip which used less wire as it did not include the last outer loop and one long side that the gem clip had. Here's what Vaaler's clip looked like.
Interestingly Norwegian patriots wore paper clips an their lapels during world war 2. This was not because Johan Vaaler supposedly invented the paper clip but because other badges were not allowed and the paper clip stood for solidarity and unity.
I hope this broadens all your horizons.
