wow

haha, a guy at my highschool made a counterstrike map of our school too. or maybe it was a different game -- that may have been before counterstrike was around. i'm thinking it may have been quake2

Ft. Bend county is the most yuppified county in the state, and one of the most politically corrupt. It has a huge and rapidly growing asian population which has been producing ever increasing political challenges to the down-home Texas good ole boy network that has dominated it for so long - people like Tom Delay, from Sugarland, which is the largest city in the county.

The school board's action is unsurprising.

If they were removed with parental consent, no problem.

"confiscated" implies that they just sort of took them. if the parents didn't want the kid to have decorative swords in his room, why did he have them? sounds like a goddamn robbery.

Police confiscate or seize, they don't steal. Ask them, they'll tell you - if they do it, it ain't a crime.

Do they have to show some sort of reason for the confiscation? Can it be challenged after the fact?

The reason is that they're weapons. Someone made a Doom map of my high school way back in the day. That was pretty cool.

There's been a big to-do at my old high school the past couple of weeks. Good stuff.

i'd just like to point out that 5 swords, depending on quality and whether or not they're actually decorations or just used as such, could have a value ranging between $300-$100,000. in any case, i'd be pissed as hell at the confiscation.

Wish I could find another copy of melon's Wizo Massacre game. I have a copy here somewhere but I'll be damned if I know where.

What gets me is the next line:

Sword ownership rights have been under heavy fire since they were determined to be the leading cause of death during the Siege of Acre in the third crusade.

Hahaha, that's the line I was going to quote too.

The next one:

"School officials determined, due to the violent nature of the video game, the iron-age WMD (weapon of mass decapitation) and other undisclosed information, the matter should be classified as a "Level 3" situation."

What the fuck? What kind of monkeys do they have jumping on typewriters over at the register?

My high school's floor plan was created by a game map designer, I'm sure of it. Classrooms in the "circle", three floors high, with an inner corridor connecting all the rooms. The gyms and activity rooms (band, photography labs, shop, art, cafeteria, locker rooms, auditorium) were in the "square" and had connecting hallways all over. It was like a maze. The first time I played a FPS and learned that you could make your own maps, I immediately wanted to make one of my former school. Never did get a hold of a Mac map editor though, so it never got made.
