Why would anyone want to actually investigate something by checking facts? It is so much easier to just press "share" or "forward" and keep spreading those rumors and lies. Or for some of the "trolls" - more fun to just say outrageous things to get a reaction.

How clever. Is that one of your classroom lessons? Teaching to vent frustrations with personal attacks?

Problem with all of these studies is a lack of strong scientific support in the conclusions. You can't control "for other variables" with any real chance of veracity. We will...on the other hand...have a small experiment here which should give a good indication of the truth of these ideas. Kids in the new schools should perform notably better (11%???) then the ones still stuck in the old ones.…

Deer jumps from overpass and lands on minivan in Northern Illinois

From from dailyherald.com:

Heidi Conner came out of a daze to hear her 8-year-old daughter screaming in the back seat of their minivan.

Next to the West Dundee mom -- inside the car -- lay the body of a mangled deer. How the 200- to 300-pound doe got there baffled police and emergency room doctors.

They assumed Conner hit the animal Sunday afternoon while driving about 70 mph west on the Jane Addams Tollway near Hoffman Estates.

"I'm like, 'No, a deer hit me,'" she said. "Nobody can believe this deer fell from the sky."

Conner, 37, and four of her five kids were just two exits shy of leaving the tollway when witnesses say the deer jumped off the Route 72 overpass and landed on her 2004 Chevy minivan about noon Sunday, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Paul Carlos said.

The creature crashed through the windshield, clipping Conner's forehead and shoulder and coming to rest right down the middle of the van. The head settled by the glove compartment between Conner and her 13-year-old son, who was sitting in the front passenger seat.
