4.33 - The One with the flashlight

check out this story that was in the Toronto Star last week...a Ryerson student is facing expulsion because he created and participated in a study group on Facebook. They are saying that he was cheating. I'm not sure about you and your study habits, but when I was in school everybody helped everybody. Using Facebook is just a new way to study together...

one more thing...I saw this on Attack of the Show last night...

that's really cool...but completely unnecessary

somebody is going to go to fold it, and shoot them self in the chest.

It's so true Lesley!
As for FaceBook - if it is an assignment that is to be done independently then a regular study group wouldn't be allowed either. But does that mean they will start patroling the libraries?!? It's a tough line to draw.

Poor Facebook...I mean, just today I heard about another issue that Facebook is getting in trouble about....something do to with groups created that promote not-eating or something like that. I guess some sort of real guidelines need to be established for the online world now...

As for the fold up gun...I'm somewhat fascinated. But really, are you going to keep a gun in your back pocket? And what kind of a recoil does that thing have? Are you going to dislocate your shoulder?
