Conspiracy theorists can have a heyday with this.

According to Wikipedia, there is "currently only one known working phone number" in area code 710. Of course, that is what Jimmy Wales and his fellow Illuminati overlords want you to believe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_code_710 

Rampant speculation suggests that there are many phone numbers in this area code for Illuminati use, such as (710) GET-GUNS.
The Government Emergency Telecommunications Service (GETS) supports national leadership; Federal, State, local, tribal and territorial governments; and other authorized national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) users. It is intended to

Obviously, this is only one side of the story. However, I believe that both sides would agree that a drill was held at the school - and that the teachers were not informed of the drill in advance.

= = =
McLean claims the school district terrified her on April 26, 2013, as she graded papers at her desk during a teachers in-service day. She heard running in the hallway and banging noises. Here's what happened next, according to the lawsuit:
     "All of a sudden, a man dressed all in black with a hoodie and goggles burst through the classroom door into the classroom. Ms. McLean was disoriented and her heart started racing. The man walked toward Ms. McLean, pointing a gun at Ms. McLean's face. Ms. McLean could not move, as she sat terrified in her chair. Ms. McLean recognized the gunman as the school safety officer, [defendant] Shawn Thatcher, an instant before he pulled the trigger. Smoke filled the room. Thatcher told Ms. McLean that she was dead.
     "Thatcher left the room. He and [defendant School Board Chairman] John Minarich, who was also dressed in camouflage, and brandishing a weapon, continued going into and out of rooms, pointing their weapons at other teachers, pulling the trigger of the gun, and stating that the teachers were dead. Panic ensued. A teacher wet her pants. A teacher tried to keep Minarich from entering his room and scuffled with Minarich, injuring the teachers' arm. Some teachers fell down trying to hide or escape from Minarich or Thatcher."
     The school was in chaos, McLean says. She says "walked out of the classroom and saw a pistol lying on the ground. She thought about her grandbabies. She wondered if she was really shot and was going to die. At first Ms. McLean felt she was OK if she was going to die. Then she thought about her daughter, who was pregnant, and became angry that she would not be able to help with the new baby. She looked at the pistol and wondered if she was supposed to pick it up and shoot someone."
     She did not. After the chaos subsided, McLean says, the "angry and confused" teachers were gathered in the school library, "concerned that two teachers were missing."
     There, she says, Minarich and Thatcher lectured them about the phony mass murder.
     A Baker County Sheriff's officer was there with a police dog in tow. "Teachers questioned Minarich, [defendant principal Cammie] DeCastro and Thatcher about their disregard for the teachers' safety," McLean says....

She says the district planned the "active shooter drill" without telling McLean or other teachers and employees, but it did inform the Sheriff's Office, so police would know not to respond to any emergency calls from the school during the "drill."
     She claims that the district asked the Sheriff's Office to run checks on school employees to see if any of them had permits to carry concealed handguns and thus could harm the "assailants" by fighting back during the drill.

The other side, from a 2013 article: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2013/05/halfways_active_shooter_drill.html

= = =
"I think Halfway is breaking ground," said Eriks Gabliks, director of the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training in Salem. "They are doing what schools should be doing."
Counterterrorism expert Rabbi Arthur Zuckerman of Portland, one of the Portland Police Bureau's chaplains, agreed. Unless drills are realistic, they don't accomplish much, he said.
"That is how you are supposed to do a drill," Zuckerman said. "You don't tell them beforehand." ...

Zuckerman, 59, grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., served 2 1/2 years in the Israeli army and joined a kibbutz before becoming a rabbi. He has worked with SWAT teams and trained in terrorism awareness at the California Specialized Training Institute in San Luis Obispo.
He advocates teaching older students in public schools to react aggressively should a shooter enter a building.
"Everybody has stuff around their desks: backpacks, pencils, whatever," he says. "You start throwing stuff," and if necessary, "charge the guy."
Gabliks agrees: "Pick up a stapler, use a desk, use a chair. Don't be a victim," he says. Both believe planning to deal with a shooter is necessary. And only practice makes a plan work successfully, they said. Encouraging "situational awareness" on the part of students and teachers also is important, both said.
"If some kid is acting weird, out of the norm, it needs to be noted," said Zuckerman. "If a student is depressed, someone needs to be paying attention to this."

I hope the birthday experience was good for her. Seems that not having friends at the school she goes to is a plus.

Sounds rigorous, doesn't it? You start with the written exam, meet some educational requirements, and then have an interview.

An oral interview.

Remember that statement from Krpan that said that ASL is his NATIVE language?

You can see where this is going....

Stoners are already kinda confused to begin with. Something like this could really blow their minds. I just hope they have the resources to handle the situation when it goes all Reefer Madness on them.

Then I realized it - Vlade wasn't saying the street names. Since all of his statements were pre-recorded, there was no way that he could say every single street name - even every single street name in Serbia.

Via +Travel Pro Tips.

My favorite review was one of Alcatraz: "Not a decent restaurant in the place."

Other underwhelming sites included the Statue of Liberty, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Grand Canyon.

Funny, seems to me that the review could be incorrect. Every time I go the tour is booked. Seems odd that it would be downplayed as otherwise.

At least the LGBT extremists don't have this record: " In 2014, according to [Virginia] state reports, PETA took in 2,631 cats and dogs. All but 307 were euthanized." http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/virginia-politics/animal-bill-could-put-peta-out-of-the-shelter-business/2015/02/23/2f4f05b6-bb6a-11e4-b274-e5209a3bc9a9_story.html
