    Florida teacher fired for Wizardry

    From the State that wanted an "Academic Freedom Bill" comes this remarkable tale !

    Land 'O Lakes, Florida -- The stories in the news about inappropriate relationships between teachers and students have been overwhelming. There was even a substitute teacher in New Port Richey who got in trouble after investigators say she had a relationship with an underage student.

    Well, another Pasco County substitute teacher's job is on the line, but this time it's because of a magic trick.

    The charge from the school district — Wizardry !

    Substitute teacher Jim Piculas does a 30-second magic trick where a toothpick disappears then reappears.

    But after performing it in front of a classroom at Rushe Middle School in Land 'O Lakes, Piculas said his job did a disappearing act of its own.

    "I get a call the middle of the day from head of supervisor of substitute teachers. He says, 'Jim, we have a huge issue, you can't take any more assignments you need to come in right away,'" he said.

    When Piculas went in, he learned his little magic trick cast a spell and went much farther than he'd hoped.

    "I said, 'Well Pat, can you explain this to me?' 'You've been accused of wizardry,' [he said]. Wizardry?" he asked.

    The teacher should've use stupefy or petrificus (sp?) totalus before the principal said you're fired.

    This is the coolest thing ever. Can you imagine going for a job interview?

    "And why did you leave your last position?"
    "I was fired"
    "Oh why?"
    "For wizardry"

    On a serious note, C# springs to mind but any of the heavy weights will do it, the school board are probably the sort of people that believe enough about the creation of the universe, earth etc that a little bit of wizardry is easily within their gullibility radar.

    As Mr Carlin said, "Where the fuck are all the zombies?"

    I think that sums it up nicely.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Here in New York, you can be a teacher and a wizard, suck at both and still get tenure and a pension.

    Sir Bedevere: There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
    Peasant 1: Are there? Oh well, tell us.
    Sir Bedevere: Tell me. What do you do with witches?
    Peasant 1: Burn them.
    Sir Bedevere: And what do you burn, apart from witches?
    Peasant 1: More witches.
    Peasant 2: Wood.
    Sir Bedevere: Good. Now, why do witches burn?
    Peasant 3: ...because they're made of... wood?
    Sir Bedevere: Good. So how do you tell whether she is made of wood?
    Peasant 1: Build a bridge out of her.
    Sir Bedevere: But can you not also build bridges out of stone?
    Peasant 1: Oh yeah.
    Sir Bedevere: Does wood sink in water?
    Peasant 1: No, no, it floats!... It floats! Throw her into the pond!
    Sir Bedevere: No, no. What else floats in water?
    Peasant 1: Bread.
    Peasant 2: Apples.
    Peasant 3: Very small rocks.

    Sir Bedevere: ...Exactly. So, logically...
    Peasant 1: If she weighed the same as a duck... she's made of wood.
    Sir Bedevere: And therefore...
    Peasant 2: ...A witch!

    Now if it was this dork, I not only would applaud his loss of employment, I'd help gather kindling for the burning ceremony.

    Hell, if you can get fired for "wizardry", just say its your religion and claim you were discriminated against due to your religious beliefs.
    The law can work in BOTH directions....hehehehehe

    Actually, you could get in big time trouble for practicing your religious beliefs in the classroom. Teachers have to be really careful these days. When I was getting my credential, my professors suggested that we shouldn't even wear symbols that reflect our individual religious beliefs (a crucifix necklace, for example). I wanted to hang my family crest in my classroom, but it has a cross on it so it's now in the closet. I didn't even ask. Yet we say "under God" everyday. Hmmmmm.....

    A teacher at the school I am at now actually got busted for the same thing about 10 years ago. Not the same trick, but "wizardry" nonetheless.

    Wizardry. Whatever.....
