Time For A Little Girl Fun -- Inspiring

Rube Goldberg machine

Okay, I don't, for a minute think these three young girls came up with this all on their own. And it doesn't matter. What does is fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. And barely 1 in 10 engineers are women. Why? Stereotyping? That's gotta stop. And this video is just the panacea.

Think of how much fun this must have been to build. Move over Rube Goldberg. Make way for Ruth Goldberg... and her friends.

VIDEO-- 5-year-old girl: Ooo, let's shoot bubbles! PA elementary school: You're a terrorist. Suspended! No, I'm not kidding.

hello kitty bubbles gitmo

 

In one Pennsylvania elementary school, 5-year-old girls in kindergarten who suggest it might be fun to blast bubbles at other 5-year-olds using a small, pink, plastic Hello Kitty bubble blower get suspended.

And that suspension makes it impossible to be accepted into other schools. Because, see, toy bubble-shooters are now evil threatening weapons and tots who want to not-harm other children with a not-harmful, painless, floaty stream of bubbles are now "terrorists."

Bubbles don't kill people, people kill people.

ABC:

A 5-year-old girl was suspended from school earlier this week after she made what the school called a "terrorist threat."

Her weapon of choice? A small, Hello Kitty automatic bubble blower.

Did I mention that the child didn't even have the bubbler with her at school?

Did I mention her weapon of choice was a doodad that blows bubbles?

deadly bubbles

Did I mention that the 5-year-old was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation? 

Guess what the outcome of the evaluation was? You guessed right. The little girl was "deemed normal" and not a threat. Imagine that! She's as harmless as a little (Hello) Kitty.

But now she's got a "record" and has been turned down by another school because of her scary terrorist past. Before you know it, there will be drones tracking her and she'll be on a watch list.

Why, soon there could be a Baby Gitmo at every neighborhood mall (So convenient!) where moms 'n' dads can shop to their hearts' content after paying a visit to their Little Prisoner.

Hello Gitty?

PhotOH! Toy "security check point" bombs on Amazon (no pun intended)

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

From Sign of the Times Department:

toy security check point

"We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." What? It wasn't popular enough to bring back? The kiddies and their parents just weren't that into it? Gee, can't imagine why.

Maybe because they didn't include a "Private Interrogation Room Playhouse," handcuffs, or optional action figures gawking at the potential terrorist when an optional alarm buzzer (batteries not included) sounds when optional metal bomb parts trigger it? They also left out shoe bomb accessories and lawsuit forms.

No wonder it's wasn't a big seller.
