^^This. We can't pass judgement. Maybe she had a lot of misfit students that are smoking pot in the bathrooms and joining gangs. For all we know, it was a last ditch attempt to reach them.

These students go home and watch Breaking Bad after school and think how cool it would be to know science as well as the chemistry teacher come drug dealer, who is the main character. Kids aren't sheltered anymore.

This wouldn't have bothered me as a student, and it doesn't bother me now.

Good for her!
She probably had enough of them kids and decided it was either this or doing some crack and showing up at school with a AK-47.

Of course it is inappropriate, especially when this nation starting bending over backwards to be ridiculously PC and the test questions have characters that are way too similar to real life.

Still, hilarious especially coming from someone that looks like her!

If it was me, I'd have collected all the phones from people like they do at a Dave Chappelle show.

The test or quiz has been circulating for a long time.

I looked up the school (It's in Mobile, AL). Interestingly, all the outrage was on social media with only one set of parents reporting the incident to the school.

It has 72% of students getting free or reduced lunches
It is 52% black and 44% white with a few hispanic students and a few asian students.

The teacher is now on administrative leave, which she probably wanted since she is retiring this month anyway. Also note that this happened very close to the end of the school year.

1) Missing 6 out of 10 shots is irrelevant information. The pertinent numbers are 30 rounds in the mag, and 13 rounds expended during each drive-by. After two drive-bys he would have expended 26 rounds, which would leave him an insufficient amount for another drive-by. So, the answer is *two*.

2) The second question has insufficient information to be answered. An 8-ball is one eighth of an ounce. Sold solely as 8-balls, the starting value of the stash would be $5120.00. However, if sold as grams, at $85 per, the starting value of the stash would be approximately $4760.00, since there are about 28 grams per ounce.

The question cannot be answered with certainty as written, since Leroy has been selling at two different price-points/measurements. In order to arrive at a concrete value, we would have to know how much he intends to sell in 1/8oz quantities, and how much he intends to sell in gram quantities.

Another variable would be, just how much lactose he intends to cut his remaining stash with in order to increase his profit margin...and we would need to know whether or not he sold any of the cut-rate coke to Ramon who might have noticed before running out of ammo for drive-bys.
Hahahaha! Post of the day!!
