Mr. Twister

На вечеринке

-Have you seen Chuck's babysitter?
-No, what about her?
-She looks like Claudia Schiffer, only younger and thinner.
-I think he said she was Miss Poland or something.
-Chuck? Do you actually have Miss Poland babysitting baby Andrew?..
-What?! No. She is not Miss Poland. She is Miss Polonia. That's a different competition.

Persistently dangerous!

А вот пишут о Балтиморских школах: The federal government defines "persistently dangerous" campuses as schools that have a total number of student suspensions, of more than 10 days, and expulsions for serious offenses equals 2½ percent of the campus' total population. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires the district to offer to parents transfer options. Как интересно -- т.е. из плохих школ можно переводиться? Тогда плохие школы должны становиться все хуже и хуже (глупые люди, очевидно, никуда переводиться не станут). С другой стороны, эти исключения на более чем 10 дней раздают сами же школы. Динамическое равновесие!
