Yes, I said *being* in a fight. If your kid tries to defend himself and gets his ass whupped, he gets suspended even if he weren't the aggressor. Both kids get suspended.
So now the only reasonable thing to teach your kid is that if he's bullied to hit first, hit often, fight dirty, and win at all costs. If you're going to get a suspension, you might as well go in to it with a W.
I'd be perfectly fine with legalized dueling so long as there were set rules and the major players were above the age of 18 and mentally fit.
It'd make the legal profession far more interesting if professional arguers were replaced with professional duelers.
As long as parents have the legal "right" to force their (property) offspring into organized religion, ethical people have the RIGHT to use force to oppose such religions.
Ethical people generally are not hyperbolic idiots or religious or anti-religious fanatics, therefore do not assert a right to use force to influence people's religious beliefs.
According to Consumer Reports AND The Tappet Brothers (Tom and Ray Magliozzi) it's bad for the engine to "warm up" your car by letting it run idle in park. It's also a waste of time and gasoline.

I've got a Yahoo email address. Would you have been do stupidly biased against me?
That depends. Is it something like email@example.com, or ILikeToDrinkAndSkipWorkTheNextDay@yahoo.com?
Keeping you awake is done because it is easier to keep you from not dying when they aren't trying to put you to sleep
What if I don't want to be kept from not dying?
It supposedly will cover a 3,000 sq ft house.
My house is 3 feet wide and 1000 ft long. Am I covered, smart guy?
She never had an orgasm until I figured out where her supposedly non-existent g-spot is
Yes she did.
When asked to do something, to you just go ahead and do it? Or do you require things like justifications, business cases, funding, staff, etc?
Admins do not get to require justification or business cases to do their jobs. That is management's job.
If the world were "fair" every single human would have as an inalienable right free access to decent food, housing, healthcare, and security and working beyond that would be an optional choice to better their life.
If the world were "fair" lazy shitbags who want decent food, housing, healthcare, and security without being willing to work for it would get tossed into a volcano.
Probably the single best thing about the current LED bulbs is you can throw them away.
I can throw away CFLs too, and the environment can eat my ass if it doesn't like it.
