Thinkbeforeyouspeak.com has released its new campaign on the issue of teens experience homophobic remarks and harassment.
” This campaign aims to raise awareness about the prevalence and consequences of anti-LGBT bias and behavior in America’s schools. Ultimately, the goal is to reduce and prevent the use of homophobic language in an effort to create a more positive environment for LGBT teens. The campaign also aims to reach adults, including school personnel and parents; their support of this message is crucial to the success of efforts to change behavior.”
I’d say this helps a lot more people than teens, really, many adults are still acting like a kid.
They have also enlisted Wanda Sykes and Hillary Duff to appear in two PSAs that draw attention to the phrase “that’s so gay” and its interpretations.

Around 1500 students from Belgium attempt to break a world record by dropping a mint sweet into bottles of Coca Cola. They tried to out-fizz the previous record for so-called Mentos fountains by simultaneously putting Mentos mints into bottles of the soft drink.

So maybe next time when you’re depressed, go to a nearby deli instead of a bar and yell “I HAD A BAD DAY, NOW GIMME A TUNA SANDWICH!”
Serotonin, the “happy” chemical can also be found in bananas, turkey and cottage cheese. Hmmm, maybe getting high isn’t so bad after all. I can almost hear school boys say “Hey, wanna get high on tuna and bananas?”
