    Drinking age raised to 21?

    making drinking more of a taboo just makes you want to do it more! as stupid as it may seem whether it works or not i think the victorians have an idea - children are allowed in a bar and to have 1 drink in the presence of an adult , like not a 5 yr old but say a teenager. positives and...

    Christian Chemist refuses sale of contraceptives

He did give a letter out to those wanting these products explaining his decision and asking them to go to other places for the product...

    good idea for xtra marks

    intruging i wonder how it will go? my thought is it will be sent to the correct marking station after they realize they've been 'sent the wrong question' where the student number will reveal one has already been submitted for that question and as they are the same there will be no added marks...

    Is smacking a child ever acceptable?

    im interested in the varied opinions. what other techniques would you use to prevent physically smacking a child? just wondering what alternatives there are purely out of curiosity, this is not a mocking tone or anything im not saying they are better or worse then smacking just after other ideas?
