If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Come on they are kids. Give them some slack. Proper editing and you can do this literally anywhere.

+1

Also, as Balducci notes, we have no idea what they actually signed or even what they were told before signing whatever-it-was.

Yes certainly Yale students don't need me to defend them but this sort of silly nonsense really proves very little.

It is indeed satire and amusing, which I believe is the intent.

Granted, the whole thing may be a gag.

Having said that, a big "minus 1" from me to the whole "They're just kids" argument. If that's a valid rationale for anything that college students do - let alone college students at an Ivy League university - then let's raise the driving and voting ages to the mid-late 20s.

So many, heck even here think the second amendment needs to be redone or repealed. Why is it so shocking that the first comes under attack?

No. It's a valid rationale for having ill-formed, or barely-formed or incubating ideas and opinions. Shall we simply tell them what to believe and leave it at that?

I don't think there's any "should" about what they think. But perhaps others should think about whether people with ill-formed and badly-formed ideas shouldn't be voting or driving.

And we think the educational system need MORE MONEY? They've failed with what we gave them....

Not sure Danny. Every time I make a couple grand it seems the government gets 35% to 45% right away. Right now I'm having to deal with Common Core.

So how much did you give to Yale?

Is it your position that a person is not allowed to want to repeal the first amendment? Isn't that what the first amendment actually ALLOWS? The ability to believe and say what you want?

Yes someones education has failed and it might not be these kids. Perhaps YOU should look in the mirror.

If the kids really think it should be repealed then so be it. They are entitled to believe so.

You're allowed to believe anything you want. I don't think anyone has suggested otherwise. Certainly Slim hasn't in this thread, nor have I.

And people are allowed to draw inferences from your expressions of your beliefs.
