National School Walkout Scheduled For Tomorrow
Students and teachers across the country will walk out of classrooms tomorrow in a show of support for the 17 students killed in a Florida high school shooting and to advocate for stricter gun control laws. Last month, gunman Nikolas Cruz stormed into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and fatally shot 17 people, reigniting the gun control movement.
EMPOWER, the group organizing the protest, says the walkout will happen at 10am local time and will last 17 minutes to honor each of the shooting victims. Over 25-hundred walkouts are planned, according to the organization's website.
Some schools are allowing students to partake in the walkout, while others are encouraging students to engage in other ways. The ACLU says students who choose to walk out of their classrooms can't be punished more than they would if they were simply skipping class on any other day.
Dear Dave FB message: Should I Propose To My Girlfriend In Front of The Porta Potty Where We Met?
Hi guys, this is Jeff. How are you all doing this morning? I’m a long time fan of the show, which is why I decided to contact you this morning for some advice if you have a few minutes.
So I met my girlfriend 2 years ago while waiting on line to use a port-a-potty at our county fair. I let her cut me because she really had to go and because she was really hot. LOL. She thanked me and we started talking and spent the rest of the day together. We moved in together six months later and now I finally saved up enough to get her an engagement ring.
I thought I would be sweet and funny to propose to her at the fair this year on the same port-a-potty line we met on 2 years ago. I think it’s a great idea but my sisters think it might not be classy enough, what do you guys think?
New Engagement Ring Trend: Finger Piercing
If you’ve ever dreamed of having a huge rock for an engagement ring but felt sure you’d lose it somehow, there’s a new engagement ring trend that could take away that possibility. But it’s not for the faint of heart.
The new ring trend is… no ring at all. Instead people are getting their ring finger pierced with a diamond. So instead of wearing a diamond engagement ring that you can take on and off, they’re getting their diamond more permanently attached to their finger. All you see when you look down at their hand is a diamond, in the same spot you’d normally see it set in a ring.
The finger piercings are like tattoo engagement rings in that they last forever, but with these, you still get a rock. They do look awfully painful, but you wouldn’t have to worry about misplacing your diamond ring with one of those.
