It’s getting harder and harder these days for a kid to make a buck or two, and it just got that much harder. Recently in Georgia, a police officer barred three teenage girls from selling lemonade. His excuse: they did not have a business license or the correct forms. If the girls were to get the required forms, it would have cost them $50/day for each permit; they needed three.
 
The girls have since been forced to shut down the shop and look for an alternative way to save up money for their water park trip. Lemonade stands keep kids from getting bored in the summer. What else are they supposed to do if they are not making crappy lemonade and trying to sell it to strangers walking by? Perhaps, if they had a snack, say a donut, to go along with their refreshing lemonade, the officer might have cut them some slack.

Why Not to Give an 8-Year-Old a Web Cam: Keisha’s “Tick Tock”

It’s truly disturbing to watch an 8-year-old lip sync:

“I’m talking about – everybody getting crunk, crunk
Boys trying to touch my junk, junk

Even worse, since she clearly didn’t edit this video herself, that means at least 2 people thought this video was a good idea.

Careful, too much of this or you'll have a hang over the next day.

Most weekends on college campuses consist of drunken antics and inebriated decision making. According to Emily Kaiser’s blog post on citypages.com, people are now getting drunk off of hand sanitizer. Seriously.

Apparently children are swallowing enough of this stuff to get legally drunk. There are some serious issues that arise out of this–the fear of poisoning being the main concern. Aside from these “sober” issues, it’s pretty messed up that these kids are even capable of getting their hands on enough Purell to intoxicate themselves.

If you think about it, it’s pretty funny. As long as it’s not happening to you.

Call poison control if you’re in need of some further assistance: 1-800-222-1222.
