Sharing is Daring

Sharing is Caring, a motto that  is apparently still not fashionable in America as a teenage boy gets arrested because his friend shared his lunch with him. Another little victory in the never ending fight against socialism! Oh boy.

Sharing or trading food during school lunchtime is not unheard of, but sharing landed one teenager in police handcuffs. Adam Hernandez was accused of stealing chicken nuggets from a $2.60 meal. But those were actually the nuggets his friend, Gakaree Garner, gave to him. Adam got in the lunch line to get some sauce for them. According to Garner and the police report the cafeteria cashier told the Assistant Principal Adam stole the chicken nuggets. The Assistant Principal then told the police officer in the school, who called a squad car. Garner says, "They actually put him in handcuffs, and actually tried to force him into the car." Ava Hernandez, Adam’s sister, says, "They were like, ‘Well do you know that friend receives federally free lunch?’, and I said, ‘I do now.’, and they said, ‘Well, it’s illegal to share a free lunch so either way Adam was breaking the law’." Adam was issued a municipal citation for theft and a $170 fine, which he chose to fight in court to keep his record clean. A youth group Urban Underground trumpets Adam’s cause, fighting against young people needlessly being put in the judicial system.

And we thought the Free Lemonade story was ugly. I don’t even know what is worse here: That a school wants a teenage boy arrested and handcuffed for “stealing” or that sharing your lunch is illegal. Good thing he didn’t point the nugget at his buddy saying "bang!" They’d be stringin’ him up on a tree by now. What kind of society is that?

2 Boys, 1 Cup

2000 years old, worth £1.8 million, banned from the USA, not publicly exhibited until 1999.
Meet history’s most expensive piece of gay porn: The Warren Cup

One side depicts a man (the active participant or erastes) engaging in anal sex with a young man (the catamite, eromenos, or passive participant), who lowers himself onto the erastes using a rope or support from the ceiling in roughly the modern sexual position of reverse cowgirl. Meanwhile a boy, perhaps a slave, watches surreptitiously from behind a door — the inferior status of a slave in Roman eyes would make him suitable to this role of voyeur. The other side depicts two young men making love. Both scenes also include draped textiles in the background, as well as a kithara (lyre) in the former scene and auloi (pipes) in the latter. These, along with the careful delineation of ages and status and the wreaths worn by the youths, all suggest a cultured, elite, Hellenized setting with music and entertainment.

They called me a Child Pornographer

I took some photos of my kids naked on a camping trip. A drugstore employee called the police — and my family’s life became a living hell.

Shortly before Thanksgiving 2004, I took my three kids camping in Mistletoe State Park near Augusta, Ga., with my best friend and his two kids. After six years in Savannah, my family was about to move to France for my wife’s new job as an administrator for an American company. We had all been camping together before and figured the trip would be a great getaway from all of the packing, painting and stresses of moving, and would allow the kids to be together for one last time. Our wives decided to stay home to organize the packing and spend some quiet time together to say goodbye.

For us, camping has always been a back-to-basics experience. We pack in all food and supplies to our remote site and take out trash and whatever is not consumed. For toilets, we dig holes with entrenching shovels and cover our traces. We teach our kids respect and responsibility in the forest. And we teach them to have a good time.

Oskar & Elias

Two deleted scenes from the Swedish queer vampire flick Let the Right One in
Interesting to ponder what goes through Oskar’s head in the second scene. He was likely pinned like that himself by his bullies. Likely slapped a few times. So, when Elias shows him how to fight back, setting Oskar into the position of the predator for the first time, Oskar copies the bullies’ behaviour. Then he sits there, remembers how hurtful that behaviour is when it happens to him.. realises he just did that to Elias, to someone he loves, and collapses into an apology – even ‘tho it was just a game.
