After dropping a Dorritos on the ground and quickly picking it up and popping it into his mouth, an 8-year old who was among our party explained to me the five second rule and how it works (for food that gets dropped on the ground).
This was news to me at the time: I had spent the last >15 years living outside of the USA. It's cool when an 8 year-old teaches an adult something they will never forget.
So it was with bemused nostalgia that I came across a printed usage of that famous childhood "five second rule" yesterday in an article that appeared in the national print edition of Amerika's newspaper of record entitled "Judge Blocks Rule For Ferguson Protesters."
From the article :
"A federal judge ruled on Monday that the so-called five-second rule, a police tactic sporadically used in Ferguson, Mo., that required demonstrators to keep moving while they protested, is unconstitutional.
Funny how questions of constitutionality seem to be all the rage these days in the MSM, what with the Supremes declaring legal opposition to civilization-detroying "same-sex marriage" something that is not guaranteed by the US Constitution.“The practice of requiring peaceful demonstrators and others to walk, rather than stand still, violates the Constitution,” Judge Catherine D. Perry of District Court wrote in the ruling."
WTF (where?) in the constitution is it written that sodomy is not only A-OK, but also something that the federal government must not just tolerate, but also actually encourage?
Answer : nowhere.
I axed Barry Sotero, because after all, this fraudulent Halfrican-American't is supposedly an expert in the field. From Wiki :
"In 1991, Obama accepted a two-year position as Visiting Law and Government Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School to work on his first book. He then taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years, first as a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and then as a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004."The New York Times : Officially-Sanctioned State Propaganda Since 1896.
