    Like you, I never got the whole Christian Brother concept. You're not a fully fledged priest, but you still can't marry? WTF?

    I'ts like voluntarily neutering yourself, but with less power and less clout. Maybe they just hate them selves. They certainly hated kids - or at least that's what it felt like. It was like a reign of terror.

    Of course, all of the 'troubled' kids got sent there, in hopes that Catholic School would 'straighten them out'. It never worked, and it was always the same kids getting into trouble all the time.

    Without a shred of exaggeration, the amount of insanely violent/crazy kids in my school dwarfed those of neighboring public schools. Always tons of fights, car break-ins, etc.

    Comparatively speaking, I was one of the more 'normal' ones.

    Any Catholic school abuse I got was at the hands of nuns, who are pure evil incarnate.

    Agreed, if bauxite was actually found within coal ore and not really aluminum ore, which is a completely separate entity and nowt to do with coal ore.

    Great post.

    But of course we had it rough. Ours wasn't one of those bauxite rich boy schools. Our school day began at midnight, half an hour before we went to bed. Every day we had to catch and kill grizzly bears with our bare hands. Then we rendered the fat to fuel the computers. If one of our programs failed, our teachers. would kill us and dance on our bones.

    I'll give you one of comedy's secrets: Certain words sound funny, especially those with a hard "c" or "x". As an example, "catch the ketchup" has more comedic weight than "grab the mayo".

    In this case, even though I understood bauxite's uses, I thought it wise to take a bit of poetic license (So you understand, it's not really a license all, but a way for all writers (aspiring or seasoned) to "fudge the facts" in order to make a piece function for the intended purpose(s), as it were) and incorporate its use for the reason I specified above.

    Second comedy secret: Never explain a joke. Folks get it or not. You don't.

    LOL. Much like beef tallow, getting the stench of the behemoth-sized carnivore's rendered fat from one's clothes is a monumental feat.

    Tim Tebow is not good enough a QB to get a series running the offense.

    But he is good enough to run square out patterns as a primary receiver.

    All you need to know about the Tanny/Rex/Tony brain trust.

    Well that was tejious. As my writing skills far exceed all others read here, I don't require any tips. Others may hungrily welcome tips at every opportunity.

    I have a very low tolerance for people passing off bauxite as coal willy-nilly, joking about it then accusing me of not getting the joke. Take it ore leave it.
