    Speaking of, don't they all have to be transparent these days? to make sure they aren't carrying a fingernail file or an aspirin or something else lethal?
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Birth control pills and condoms are still okay, though.

    Attn CU: I did not blindly start a thread like this. I know my posts generally don't make any sense but this one is not on me.

    I wonder how much damage backpacks do to kids spines/shoulders?
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    Injuries can happen when when backpacks are worn improperly but not scoliosis. "It is a common wives' tale, but heavy backpacks will not cause scoliosis," Tidwell said. "Scoliosis is caused by reasons unknown; it just happens."

    If children wear backpacks with uneven straps, that can affect balance, which can lead to a twisted ankle, Tidwell said. The most common injuries occur in the shoulder because heavy straps can tear the tendons in the area. "If you are looking at your child and they are leaning forward, that's a sign the backpack is too heavy," Geleroff said. "Catch it early before it becomes a problem."

    The little ones carry mostly school supplies in their backpacks, not heavy textbooks. According to my brother and his wife, his kids do most of their work on their computers, so they aren't carrying a lot of books home with them at night. My sister's kids go to school in a small, conservative community, so they still have to read actual books.
