    Come fess up. How many of you can honestly say you have not resorted to class A drugs in order to get through the Inset on the first day of term?;)

    This happens at the EBD school where I work. Recently, the youngest, both aged 12 congratulated each other, having taken it in turns to 'identify' stuff.

    The gorgeous lad (12 and in care,) was used as a 'runner' for the above. How sad is that...

    I think we should think very carefully about importing all those Chinese Maths specialists.;)

    As I understand it they work faster if you insert them at the other end... well according to the French ;)

    These drugs awareness sessions have a two way flow of information as a copper once explained to me.

    Dealers and users are always changing the street names of drugs so that they can try and stay one step ahead of the law (or "5 O" if you are fully consersant with the language of the street bro).

    So when the cops ask the kids if they can identify them they are also trying to catch any new street names that might be revealed, Fortuantly for them there is always at least one "smart Alex gansta" (who is not that smart after all) who freely gives the cops all the names they need to know in his/her bid to look cool in from of the class.

    Oral paracetamol reduced temp in children 2hrs faster than suppository.

    However, suppositories are not excreted as quickly in urine.

    But if it's for pain.. Try lidocaine (I could write copy for the drugs industry)


    There are side effects to the lidocaine, but if the pain is that bad, who cares.

    Then there is pain hell, for which you will need something, much, much more powerful.


    Good health, live long and prosper.

    Do academies not administer performance enhancing drugs to their teachers yet?

    They prefer the whip of capability. The adrenaline doesn't cost them anything that way...

    I'm quite disappointed that they are no longer 'feds'.

    I wasn't suggesting it, although if the performance enhancing drugs that HBF refer to are available I suggest they be administered by suppository starting with those at the top of the organisational hierarchy.

    It's been a long time since I taught in an inner city school, you may be able to ascertain how long as it was back when they were known as popo :rolleyes: lol

    Lidocaine is in the cocaine family. The side effects are similar.

    Performance enhancing?

    I'm surprised that these idiots in management have not realised that endorphins are the best performance enhancers.

    Teaching is a Pain In The A**, hence my listing of a variety of suppositories which one might be able to get on prescription, should they be required.

    I've known two teachers in two different school who drank alcohol during the school day to get through.

    In a futile attempt to preserve my threadbare reputation, may I point out that I have made no reference to performance enhancing drugs.
