Arizona Fourth Grader Confronted With Infidelity In School Assignment
Arizona fourth grader Kyera McCloskey got an accidental lesson in infidelity earlier this week.
According to ABC15, McCloskey and her fellow students at the Playa Del Rey Elementary School in Gilbert, Ariz. were given a very grown-up homework assignment on Monday. The students were prompted to read about various situations, describe what was happening in them and then offer a response or solution. One such "situation" was about a woman finding a hair clip underneath her bed with another woman's hair in it.
McCloskey suspected the question had to do with cheating, but consulted her mother for clarification.
"I kinda had my mom help me with the answer a little bit because I didn't want to go too deep into what it was trying to ask me," she said.
After McCloskey's mother called the school, the teacher quickly apologized, admitting she had not read the assignment carefully.
"That's not a subject matter the school needs to bring up to my child," McCloskey's mother said.
Experts tell flatulent flyers: let rip
A group of medical specialists has provided an answer to a dilemma that has faced flyers since the Wright brothers took to the air in 1903 -- is it okay to fart mid-flight? The experts' recommendation is an emphatic yes to airline passengers -- but a warning to cockpit crews that breaking wind could distract the pilot and pose a safety risk.
The study concluded that flying increases flatulence. Changes in air pressure at altitude result in the gut producing more gas.
However, they said the cockpit crew faced a lose-lose situation.
"On the one hand, if the pilot restrains a fart, it could result in impaired concentration and may affect his abilities to control the plane," the researchers said. "On the other hand, if he lets go of the fart, his co-pilot may be affected by its odour, which again reduces safety onboard the flight."
