General Off-Topic Board / Bong Hit for Jesus

High court takes 'Bong Hits for Jesus' case

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Supreme Court entered into a free-speech dispute Friday involving a high school student suspended over a "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" banner.

The justices accepted an appeal from a school board in Juneau, Alaska, after a federal appeals court allowed a lawsuit by the family of Joseph Frederick to proceed.

Frederick was suspended in 2002 after he unfurled the 14-foot-long banner -- a reference to marijuana use -- just outside school grounds as the Olympic torch relay moved through the Alaskan capital headed for the Winter Games in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"Bong," as noted in the appeal filed with the justices, "is a slang term for drug paraphernalia."

oh and the best part? Ken Starr is representing the school board.

Studying for the LSAT / Lewis Carroll Logic Puzzles
« on: November 24, 2006, 09:13:21 PM »
since some of you are burned out on lsat logic but still want to have some fun, try the following syllogisms created by the victorian-era oxford logic and mathematics scholar, the rev.charles dodgson, also known as alice in wonderland author lewis carroll.

Once master the machinery of Symbolic Logic, and you have a mental occupation always at hand, of absorbing interest, and one that will be of real use to you in any subject you may take up. It will give you clearness of thought - the ability to see your way through a puzzle - the habit of arranging your ideas in an orderly and get-at-able form - and, more valuable than all, the power to detect fallacies, and to tear to pieces the flimsy illogical arguments, which you will so continually encounter in books, in newspapers, in speeches, and even in sermons, and which so easily delude those who have never taken the trouble to master this fascinating Art.

                     - Lewis Carroll

the following syllogisms or logic puzzles were meant to be nonsensical. Dodgson felt that readers might read too much into recognizable connections. as you would with an LR stimulus, break them down into formal logic componants and their contrapositives: A --> B, etc.

i'll post three now. if you like them i'll post some more of increasing difficulty.


(a)  All babies are illogical.
(b)  Nobody is despised who can manage a crocodile.
(c)  Illogical persons are dispised.
(d)  ?


(a) My saucepans are the only things that I have that are made of tin;
(b) I find all your presents very useful;
(c) None of my saucepans are of the slightest use.
(d) ?


(a) None of the unnoticed things, met with at sea, are mermaids.
(b) Things entered in the log, as met with at sea, are sure to be worth remembering.
(c) I have never met with anything worth remembering, when on a voyage.
(d) Things met with at sea, that are noticed, are sure to be recorded in the log. 
(e) ?

« on: November 03, 2006, 06:26:08 AM »
in a fit of boredom, i've dedicated the third post in the stickied lsat links thread above to an lsd glossary, but one particular to the lsat board. i've started it, but i need your help to expand it.

when you were new here, what befuddled you about the terminology or behavior here?

here is the post with its glossary:,74733.msg1735655.html#msg1735655

here's what i have so far;



TITCR        This is the credited response
FWIW         For what it's worth
JSIA         Just sayin', is all...
JSYK         Just sayin, ya know
TTT          Third tier toilet; eg.,  schools in the 3rd and 4th tier of usnews rankings; by extension, anything low, valueless, and unworthy is also TTT
XOXO; a vile place where racial slurs, prestige whoring, and flame wars are the norm. only for the foolish or strong-willed

Arcane LSD Terminology
