Clearly this world is now so dangerous that some sort of final solution is needed. So, for 100% safety, lets ban all people.....

Perhaps we ought to ban the experts who insist on coming up with these ideas.... :no:



There was one such germ paranoid type on a morning news broadcast here, a wee while back. She pontificated long and wisely upon the danger of spreading germs, from sneezing to general contact, to the point were another guest butted in. First she placed her own hand on the table in front of them, ran the hand then down the expert's arm, shook hands with the presenters, and intoned gravely: "Look, I have now infected you all. Plus, we all came in from outside, got make-up slapped on us, and you - the expert - are worried that you MIGHT get an infection? For crying out loud, how can you cope with leaving your house each day?!!!

I love a good dose of germs. Hell I haven't been to a doctor for sickness in over 5 years.

Edit: I'm pretty sure being a grubby little kid helped...

Yea because germs cannot spread around a classroom  without blowing out birthday candles ..Take away the birthday cake, and you will never see a kid catch the cold in school again

Imagine these generation of kids in twenty years. Probably will have a low immune system.

The school where my kids go to never allowed candles in the first place anyway, probably some OHS issue.

They also ask for cupcakes, slices or for you to pre-cut a large cake up. I don't understand the problem if single serves are brought to school anyway why not just put a candle in the birthday childs piece?

But then my school has bigger problems than that to deal with. :td:

No one has been proven to have lived forever. In fact being born causes a 100% certainty of death. Australia need to address this atrocity (and the mayor of New York City).

You know what attributes to the rise of allergies and weaker immune systems in the new children of Australia these days? Drivel like this. It's not good for a child to live in a completely clean and pristine environment. Over protectiveness and stupidity in full force.

Everyone has their "precious" child over here. Little do they know, that they're doing more harm than good.

just by looking at politicians, you can tell that they were the kind of stuck-up little kids who used to get bullied at school, and only got into politics as a way of getting their own back....

aussies are tougher than badly fried steak, but you have to be when you live in a country where every living thing that walks crawls, flies, swims or breathes is designed to kill you in the most painful way imaginable, so I doubt a few little germs will harm 'em!

This is just another overeaction and brainless suggestion which proves again that our authorities solution to all problems is to implement more controlling mechanism and threaten with hefty fines if we don't follow the rules.

The people who make up and implement these pathetic rules should be dragged out of their place of work and executed in front of a crowd as an example of how being a bottom dwelling jobs worth will get you in a heap of trouble. I despise these snivelling morons, the same morons who said out children can't sing ba ba black sheep anymore as it may be deemed racist.
