Tales Out Of School, Vol 1: She Blinded Me With Science!

Many of you are likely familiar with the chemical reaction featured below. It's popular with high school chemistry teachers, probably because it's been scientifically proven that even the snottiest of snotty-ass teenagers will give you their undivided attention while you're setting things on fire.*

However, I'm guessing that for most of you, this demonstration didn't come prefaced with the announcement that "THIS little gummy bear didn't accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior..."**

And THAT, kiddies, is what sets Christ-centered education apart from the rest!

*Ok, "scientifically proven" in the Ken Ham sense. Which pretty much means I pulled that out of my ass.
**I wish I were kidding, but that's pretty much verbatim. Slightly off topic but not quite: recently, a new Facebook group appeared in my little orbit, "You Know You Went To [Redacted Christian School] When...". I initially stayed away from it, as I tend to avoid like the plague anything that has to do with that place, until I found it was full of other people who felt the same way I did about the years of indoctrination. It's been sort of therapeutic, and certainly thought-provoking. There may be more posts on the subject soon.
