Chewing gum in class; an action once reserved for only the most wicked rad rebellious badass kids in class should really be an action performed by the geekiest of nerds.
There have been many studies conducted on the effects of chewing gum on both alertness, stress levels and peoples ability to learn and absorb information however a recent report by the Baylor College of Medicine shows that there could be direct academic advantages to chewing gum as a result of the previously established facts.
With this in mind one must wonder about the strict discipline with which children are met for doing, what is in essence, nothing more than enhancing their ability to learn and perform well in class.
Perhaps it is time for teachers and administrators to think about what is in the children’s best interest and, instead of banning chewing gum, making it an essential part of the schooling experience, like a pen license.

First off apologies for my lack of activity over the last couple of weeks, things are rather hectic at the moment and I am struggling to find the time to put any thoughts down in a post.
Things should be back to normal in about 2 weeks and so I should be able to resume semi-regular postings then.
In the mean time I thought I would throw down a very quick review of Inglorious Basterds. So lets keep it short and to the point…
To start with let me say I am a massive Tarantino fan. I really like most of the stuff he has done and this was no exception. The film is AMAZING. The pacing, direction and acting is all excellent and the film delivers laughs a minute while keeping you engaged and on the edge of your seat. A bit of a warning for those that are not strong of stomach, the film has a fair amount of extreme violence.
In my opinion this has been his best film since Pulp Fiction. I strongly recommend everyone see it, now… GO!
