Back-to-School Urban Legends

Aug 28, 2013

Have you been dreading going back to school all summer for fear of being stuck in a locker? Or perhaps you've been having nightmares for months about the mystery meat in the cafeteria. Well, Kidzworld wants you to decide - are these urban legends fact, or fiction? Take a guess!

Failing Grade

We've all had the nightmare where you can't remember a single thing on the exam and are rushing to fill in the answers minutes after your teacher has called time. But have you ever called a teacher's bluff? When one Miami, Florida student's teacher told him he would get a failing grade if he didn't finish the test on time, the student asked if he even knew his name. The teacher responded by saying "No. But I'll have a pretty good idea what your name is when I record your failing grade." The student slipped his exam in the middle of the pile and fled from the room. Sources say the student got a B+. Hmmm...

Lip Lock

Ever heard about high school sweethearts Sally and Johnny? These lovebirds were just trying to get a little kissing action out of the way at lunch, when their braces got locked together! They pulled and pulled but nothing budged. They had to shimmy their way to the nurse's office and call the fire department to pry those locked lips apart. So much for not having the WHOLE school find out about your love life.

Fries With That?

Although packing a brown bag lunch isn't always the coolest thing to do, it may be the safest. Do any of us really know what they chop into the casserole surprise, or what sort of meat is thrown into the batch of Sloppy Joes? Maybe all those horror movies where the cafeteria lady throws anything she can get her hands on into the meat grinder aren't that far off the mark. Just a little food for thought.

Have Your Say

Have you heard of any urban legends that you would like to share? Which of these stories are true and which ones are definitely hoaxes?

Believe in Urban Legends or Not?

  • I think they are all real.
  • Only the one about the test could've happened.
  • I guess we never really know what's in our food.
  • None of them are real. They're just stories!

Alright, I need to vent about something. In this one role-play called Logan: The Beast Unleashed, I have this one character named Aiden who is a former mercenary assassin. (I know, pretty dark. But just hear me out here.) Aiden went to try and convince Logan to come back, and pretty much failed. Going to Logan, Aiden killed 5 thugs that he came across that were going to do something pretty bad if he didn't do something first. At the middle of the time he had there, he killed a guy that was going to inform people about him which would be awful. A month later, Aiden received a letter. The day after, a guy entered the side street that Aiden lived in, giving Aiden the right to kill him. Then the leader said, "Can you please tone it down with Aiden's killing?" I kill 5 guys, then 1 more, and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. First, he killed 6 people in one day. Then one month and a day later, I kill someone and then told to tone it down. How does he know whether or not Aiden had been keeping away from killing people? Meanwhile, his character Carl kills whoever crosses his path, just to get to a girl. Carl goes and kill countless people and when I kill a 7th guy, I'm told to tone it down. Carl doesn't seem to be much different than Aiden! If anything,  he should tone it down! I just can't believe it. 1 month and 1 day later, kill a 7th guy and then, "Can you please tone it down?" HOW ABOUT YOU TONE IT DOWN?! It isn't very logical to tell me to tone it down when he has so much more going on! Sure, a lot has to change so Aiden can work with the others, but I don't want to be told to tone it down when Carl can't tone it down! Why can't Aiden just continue on with his usual act and make it more fun and challenging for when the time comes for Aiden to cooperate with others? *sarcastically* IT ISN'T LIKE ANYONE IS BEING PRO-FAVORED HERE! Seriously, the leader makes it so much harder for me to really do anything and makes it easier for everyone else. I'M NOT EVEN THE VILLAIN! I feel incredibly disrespected when he constantly makes it so much harder for me. Sure, the challenge is fun sometimes. But if I feel like as if I can't do anything and make no progress, then how in the world am I supposed to have fun? Role-playing is for having fun. I don't want to leave, I just don't to participate in a role-play where I can't have fun.
