Why teens and Adults should not be friends on facebook:



Teenage Facebook Friend: Wouldn't it be ironic if you died choking on a lifesaver?

Me: That is why they have the holes in the center.

Teenage Facebook Friend: What???

Me: The hole is there so that if it gets caught in your throat, you can still breathe...through the hole.

Teenage Facebook Friend: ?

No, seriously kid. In twenty years, that will make sense.

Do you think if I was choking on a piece of ice, I'd be able to hold my breath long enough for the ice to melt and save my life?

It depends... Is it crushed ice, an icicle, a cube of ice, A tube of ice, or glacial ice, or dry ice?

So funny that you wrote that. Last month a friend of mine posted on facebook that her six year old son got a lifesaver stuck in his throat. When they finally got it out, he said, "If that had been a jolly rancher I could have died."

Yeah, without a hole you wouldn't be able to put a straw through it to breathe. Or a tracheotomy.

Seriously, that is one stupid teenager, and cannot speak for the rest of us as a whole.
but seriously, don't you hate it when you think you've said something witty/profound, and all you get in reply is a petty "?".

guess what token? BYU doesn't want me! It must be all this arrogance.

Micah --- That's happened to me before. It's not a really pleasant experience but kind of cool to feel it melting. Of course, it was just standard ice-cube tray ice. No guarantees it would work for glacial or dry ice. =)

Funny!

My teenaged neighbor posted on FB the other day that she made the "cheer skwad". It was really hard not to say anything besides congratulations. ;)
