The parents must support the kid, too: fight the school and blame them for the bullying, threaten to sue, etc, whenever the school tries to punish the kid for fighting back.
Make no mistake about it: if you don't let the bullied kids fight back, you're giving the bullies a license for psychological torture. If you punish the bullied kids for fighting back, you make the game even more fun for the bully.
Bullying is just a different kind of violence.

Any bets on how long it takes before someone starts calling it "beemageddon"?
I probably just started it. *sigh*

What the fuck is in the water in England?
Ghost sightings? Succubus and incubus attacks? Water ghosts? WTFFFFF?*
I'm not one to rule out the supernatural entirely, but if supernatural events were that common wouldn't there be video and audio? Or something?

Lesbian helps to manufacture a hate crime.
...the alleged victim has all the charm of a dump truck. No wonder she's a lesbian.

"The world's biggest eye in the sky."
...it'll be on the ground. It's not going to be in the sky.
I'm all for building massive scientific instruments with which to push back the boundaries of knowledge. But is it really necessary to effuse over the thing so much you lose your shit over it? C'mon. Fine, it'll be the world's largest optical telescope; but it's not going to be the "world's largest eye in the sky". I think that one goes to Hubble, or its replacement.

Call in the National Guard! There's too much violence out there!
Chicago is a liberal paradise. It has been run by Democrats since a few minutes after the Big Bang (and only that much of a delay because the universe needed time to cool enough). Guns are outlawed; only the police and criminals have them.
Big surprise that people who don't give a rat's ass about the law are shooting each other. Big surprise to anyone who isn't a Democrat, that is.
The liberal concern with the rights of people to behave like complete animals always overpowers the rights of law-abiding citizens to be safe and secure in their persons, property, and homes. So the Chicago police aren't allowed to break up the loitering groups of young men, to tell them to go home, even if the cops know they're gangbangers. The citizens aren't allowed to own weapons with which they could protect themselves. If a police officer arrests a gangbanger for something, a lawyer has him back on the street in half an hour, frequently with all charges dropped due to technicalities.
The massive failure of the Democrat paradigm in big cities periodically makes itself obvious; this time it's happening in Chicago. And the only thing the Democrat machine can think of is to impose martial law, because changing anything else is complete anathema to it.

...I still haven't watched the ep of Smallville I taped Friday, nor the two eps of Doctor Who I taped Saturday.
DW is the new guy, the guy who replaced David Tennant.
I did finally watch some anime. It's only been about two weeks. Playlist:
Kaitou Saint TailKanamemo is over. KST is a series of which I never got to see the end, but I haven't watched it since 2002 at the latest so I had to start over. PPY (English translation: Petite Princess Yuushi) looks good to me after 1 ep. TAKnR and CB are still entertaining.

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
I came across an image of the girls (the major characters anyway) from "Railgun" lined up, in profile, in underwear, in order of largest breasts to smallest. It went: Konori, Kiyama, Saten, Misaka, Uiharu, Kuroko, and the chibi whose namer I can't remember. This image exists because--to the true otaku--this is vital information.
(Konori's boobs are bigger than Kiyama's? Holy crap.)
I also have an image of the cast from Yotsuba&! lined up with the cast from Azumanga Daioh. It turns out that Jumbo is 210 cm tall. That's not just tall for a Japanese person; that's tall for anyone. So Sakaki isn't the tallest Japanese person in the world after all. (Heh.)
...how the hell he fits in that little kei truck he's driving in the first chapter is beyond me. But he's probably used to it.
It occurs to me that Sakaki is in fact 2 cm taller than Risa Koizumi from Lovely Complex. So she's really tall. And Risa is willowy; Sakaki is, erm, fluffy.

Anyway, that's about all I've got. It's Tuesday and the WoW servers are down for maintenance; there are no errands pending and I've been up since midnight. (I got perhaps four hours of sleep last night.)
I'll leave you with this:
