Alarming Lunch Box

Have something tasty in your lunch you don't want to share? If your lunch keeps getting snagged by thieving students, you don't have to starve. And you don't have to go crying to your mommy either.

Nic James had enough of people stealing his lunch at school. Instead of spilling blood, Nic invented an alarm for his lunch box. It fits inside a small juice container so it doesn't take up too much space. Whenever someone opens the lunch box, the alarm goes off. Now no one messes with Nic's food!

12 year-old Nic takes a stereo with him to class which is tuned to the same FM station as the siren inside his lunch box. There had been "heaps of burglaries in bags and stuff" which is one of the reasons Nic invented his alarm. He entered his alarm into the national Bright Sparks competition which is held in New Zealand, where Nic lives. He came in third place in the kitset modification category and won a $40 gift certificate for Dick Smith Electronics. Nic says he, "didn't want to make a big deal of it."

Do you know any kids that have done something outstanding? They don't have to have invented anything. They could have saved someone's life, raised money to support an animal or even a plant, or perhaps they won a contest.

You don't see the boys on this website getting all riled up by the male bashing that's been going on in recent years. It's because everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even if I was trying to be offensive and offend people (which I wasn't) I'm allowed to do that because in America we have this thing called freedom of speech. Freedom of speech because your SUPPOSED TO SAY THINGS THAT ARE NICE  Well, actually, no. Although I dislike people saying rude things to one another, freedom of speech allows it. The only things freedom of speech does not allow are harmful things such as death threats, which Shawn's post wasn't even remotely close to. I also wouldn't personally consider his post "rude" either, but hey, that's just me.

And not even a very offensive joke at that. Of course I knew you were joking. I can read, can't I? What I find hilarious, though, is that people think I wasn't. I thought I made it pretty clear that I wasn't being serious. Am I seriously that good a troll? Your joke was nowhere near offensive. That stereotype is one I find very funny. The only people I know who believe women belong in the kitchen are members of the old-fashioned, Southern-half of my family. But even they don't expect it, they just think it. It's dying out; no one really cares if a woman stays at home and cooks or not. The fact that the radical feminists think that all men still feel this way is very amusing.
