GZachary-Cas Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

I think it is really cool that the students gave him such a big tip and a really nice letter. It is cool how they gave this pizza guys kids a really nice christmas this year.

LAensly-Cas Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

I think that the pizza delivery man was very fortunate to have the opportunity to receive such a large tip. Some people think that giving someone with such a "basic" job a huge tip, doesn't mean much, that it wasn't worth it. But if they were in the position that he's in, especially having 2 children, they would be really grateful if people were kind enough to do that. And besides, it's not like he's spending the money on himself, he's spending it on Christmas toys for his kids.

DDajour-Cas Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

I think that the kids that did that were verry generous to that man. And if I am ever in the predicament I will be happy and blessed.

MAnthony-Cas Don't expect another winter like last one!

The only thing I didn't like about last year's winter was how we were missing school days and had to make it back up in July. I'm actually thankful this year's snow weather will be better than last year's but I did like how we were able to miss all those days and get to sleep in.

BMegan-Cas Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

They called the cookies chocolate "chirp" cookies because, instead of chocolate chips, the cookies were made with Cajun crickets. As much as I like chocolate, I wouldn't want to try any chocolate-covered bugs. I'm fine enough with the small amount that is already inside the chocolate.

What team is that ? Did he get the out ? Did he fall in the crowd or did he hang on ? What position does he play ?

Good job,Abby, you saved your mom's life! And you were under pressure. It's a good thing that you listened to the cop. He helped save your mother's life.

PaytonD-Bro She's a cheerleader. And she's blind.

How lucky is she! Being blind and being able to be a cheer leader. God blessed her so she can do that. She is so talented it would be very hard to do. I bet she had her hard times but she got threw it.

KoleDavidG-Bro 8-year-old girl takes the wheel, saves the day

That was crazy ! I don't understand why she would do that. It s stupid. And how could her mom have passed out ? I don't understand that.

KaedonB-Bro Slow down! This Corvette is watching you.

IamXfactor Sherlock Holmes: Man of mystery, or not?

Sherlock Holmes is one of the most awesome human fictional characters I have known. I think that he stands out from the rest just because of the fact that he is human but knows more than other people. And the fact that intrigues me most is that he uses his "superpower" for helping other people.

GDesiree-Cas Would you pay $46,532 for jeans? Levi's did.

No,me personally I wouldn't pay that amount of money for a pair of regular jeans. I think that the money spent on the jeans could've made better use as a donation to a charity not for the possession of a fashion artifact. This article was interesting to read though, it's crazy that people would waste $46,532 on a pair of old pants.

TehyaWhite-Ste 8-year-old girl takes the wheel, saves the day

I know she must have been so scared because I had to do something similar to that before. It wasn't that my mom got hurt or anything, but she dropped her cigarette and it was burning a hole in her pants. I had to reach over and grab the steering wheel to steer the car while she got things under control. I'm so glad Abby was calm about things, because it probably would have been worse if she would have freaked out.

10/23/14
TehyaWhite-Ste Cool car or dorkmobile?

It may be better on gas mileage because it's smaller and aerodynamic, but I think it's ugly. I would honestly rather pay more for gas than been seen in a car that ugly.

cashmoneyy How do dolphins sleep without drowning?

That is so awesome! Dolphins are really cool. I think that it is amazing how they can sleep one part of the brain at a time. That sounds hard to do i wonder if a human could do that.

Tucker2525 Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

If Americans are eating bugs for a meal I am going to live on my own and find my own real sourse of protien. It looks digusting and i might throw up.

TehyaWhite-Ste Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

It demonstrates the "do for one what you wish you could do for everyone" ideal because the students really helped the guy out. It would be so cool if they could do that for every pizza guy because it would make their days but they can't because it's so much money.

Preston27 Watching others play video games the next big thing

I want to be in the show! Playing games and your on t.v. that's like a dream come true! And why are they putting people on t.v. who are just playing games?

cashmoneyy Everybody used to wear jeans. But not anymore.

I remember when jeans were very popular. I can tell they are going down. Sometimes people style their own jeans like rip them or get two sizes to small. Jeans are starting to come back in different styles.

Tucker2525 Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

I cant believe that some people did that. If i was that pizza guy i would buy an iphone and a ipad.After that i wold put all the money into saving.

RaphaelLover14 Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

That is so great that you found your parrot. This is a good story i like your parrots colors. Thats so cool that it can bark. That is also cool that it can speak in Spanish. Ive never heard of a parrot speaking Spanish.

That's the coolest car ever! And how is that a dorkmobile? Are they going to make more cars like that? And nice paintjob it looks cool!

Thats so good last winter was miserable I am looking forward to a ok winter. cant wait for snowball fights.I wonder if OLympia Washinton will get snow.

TehyaWhite-Ste Don't expect another winter like last one!

It makes me feel good that they say that because last winter was so ridiculous. There was so much snow and we missed so much school. I'm just glad that it won't be a disaster.

Spongebob27 8-year-old girl takes the wheel, saves the day

Wow, that's amazing that a year old girl drove a car down the highway. It was really good that the officer noticed that an year old was driving down the highway and got her to stop by bumping into his car.

That is amazing that an 8 year old drove her mom to safety. IT was very convenient that a man noticed it and was able to help.

wilsocol000 Hate taking the bus to school? Try swimming!

Wow, that is amazing how determined these high school students are to get to class every day. To trudge through, possibly, shoulder high water and then walk up a 3 mile hill every day to get to high school, is the definition of determination.

10/23/14
cashmoneyy Don't expect another winter like last one!

I would not really like those snow days like last year because it did affect a lot of schools and districts. It also affected a lot of homes as well. But I do like snow so that's a hard decision. I'm glad we are not expecting weather like that again this year.

10/23/14
21djpepi Can you draw better than a 40,000 year old?

I would say you you could draw better! Why? The reason is that no person in the world would live to 40,000 years old! That's impossible! No way in the world way in the world that could happen! That is my saying on this!

WOW! How long did it take to grow it to get to that size, how much water did they give it, and how did they weight it.

21lrhugh Don't expect another winter like last one!

I hope we don't have a winter like we did last year. I like winter but it just got way to cold. The experts might be wrong and they may be correct. We'll find out soon enough.

MikaylaStazewski-Ste Abercrombie & Fitch decides to lose the logo

This is awesome. I never thought that they slept floating. I thought they slept on the bottom of the ocean or in a home that they built.

MikaylaStazewski-Ste Record-breaking pumpkin weighs more than a car!

It is awesome that Hawkley was able to win because now he can repair his home. But, I just do not know how a pumpkin can become so large.

21dbgilb Falcon couldn't see. Now it flies with better eyes.

I think that is pretty cool. I think this because I didn't even know that falcons could have plastic surgery. It is pretty amazing to have a bird be able to see again because of plastic surgery.

21aavizi Would you pay $46,532 for jeans? Levi's did.

I would never in life, pay $46,532 for a pair of Levi's jeans. I think it is a waist of people's money. You can go to Walmart and buy a pair of Levi's jeans for like 20-30$ without having to pay thousands of $'s for a pair of jeans.

21BEBROW What turned a lobster blue?

that is a little weird how do you get a blue lobster is it mutated that lobster could be one of very few they should tag and release it that way they could find more or they should breed them and see if their offspring are blur or if the can make offspring with red lobsters

21amskin Firefighters save shepherd from sinkhole

I'm so happy they got him out of there.
If any of my 6 dogs fell in a sink hole
I would cry and cry. I am so glad the
dog isn't hurt and is with her or his
owner. I would too be scared if I was
that dog.

21lktemb Puffins in peril – want to help?

I love puffins! I think they are so cute. It is very sad that the puffins are decreasing in the world because they can't find enough food to eat. I think it is also sad that the fledglings are dying too. I hope that the puffin populations will increase in the near future.

10/23/14
MikaylaStazewski-Ste Don't expect another winter like last one!

I do hate the cold more than anything, but the one thing I actually look forward to in winter is the snow. Snow storms mean no school, so the fact that they're predicting an average winter is a little upsetting.

10/23/14
21beserv Could you hit a pitch thrown by President Obama?

I think I would not be able to hit a pitch from Obama. Because he's a president not a baseball player. Maybe he could if practices. I could hit a pitch from Obama because I can hit a pitch from any body. That's how good I am at baseball. And It would be fun because you would actually get to met the president of the United States. All I'm trying to say is that I could hit a pitch from Bracka Obama.

21gaware Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

I personally would never eat a chocolate covered bug. That sounds very disgusting, but yet very interesting. I think that they call chocolate "chirp" cookies instead of chocolate chip cookies because their are made with sugared wax worms and spicy Cajun crickets. In this article it also states that the chocolate-infused bug fare was being offered as a special "treat."

10/23/14
21amtrud 50 Cent’s pitch is not on the money

If I was 50 Cent, I would've been super embarrassed! Since he didn't even get the ball near home plate, I could have done way better! On this day, 50 Cent was pitching the first pitch to the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Mets. I saw this pitch on ESPN Sporstcenter so many times!

21ljcava Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

I don't think these students should have given that driver 1,200 dollars because the driver just delivers pizza not like it is gold or something so i would have not of done that if i were them because i usually pay the driver 5 dollar tips not 2,000 dollars.

10/23/14

it because we might get more snow days.

21djpepi World's tallest cow is taller than most people

Okay, that is a HUGE cow! That will probably end up in the World Record Book of 2015! That cow is probably a couple hundred pounds! Did you see in the picture that the cow is about a full foot taller then the woman?? That cow is something!

10/23/14
21jmborm Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

Wow, I like domino's but i can't believe that a person gave them a 1,200 tip cash! If i was working their i would get the tip and put it right straight in the bank for college. Domino's is lucky they got that.n Maybe the person liked the pizza so good that he gave them 1,200 dollars, THATS CRAZY!

10/23/14
21wtmadd Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

Yes I would eat chocolate covered insects because I've ate BBQ worms. I also ate chocolate cover inch works, crickets, and maggots. They are not that good though. I bought them from a resort (Blue Harbor village.) I don't like to think about them when there alive though. BLAH! But who else you'd eat them?

10/23/14
21ajmich World's tallest cow is taller than most people

I am not a huge fan of cows but wow a cow that is 6 foot 4 is huge. I can not imagine standing next to the cow. I would be a little scared at first if I was standing next to a cow that is 6 foot 4. I hope that Blosom brings good smiles to all the children.

10/23/14
21jafalc Don't expect another winter like last one!

I hope that we don't have another winter like last year because last years winter was so bad that kids couldn't go outside because it was so cold outside unless you had a lot of clothes on so you would't get cold. also over 200 people had their water pips frozen.

KellyA2 Fisherman pulls a “goblin” from the deep

I think its very scary that a 63 year old fisherman has caught a rare shark. I have seen a movie about a shark and it was called goblin shark. I just thought they got bored and made some weird shark hybrid, but now I know that a goblin shark is real........ but in the movie it looked totally fake.

10/23/14
KellyA2 E-Trade baby says “I’m out of here”

I think that a singing cat is much more weirder instead of a talking baby because a baby will talk at one point and a cat will not talk at all. I also think that the talking baby is so cute and very funny...also kinda freaky and creepy but also funny.

10/23/14
CassieA2 Record-breaking pumpkin weighs more than a car!

KellyA2 Oops! 3 pandas thought to be boys are girls

I think it is strange to see that these scientist could have possibly be confused to be males instead of females. I wonder why they thought these female pandas could be male pandas. But I guess that knowing what gender a young panda is can be difficult.

10/23/14
CassieA2 World's tallest cow is taller than most people

I didn't know that a thirteen year old cow can be taller than a 6'5 human. I think that a 13 old cow can be that talI. I thought that a cow that young had to be short than a human.

CAKhyasia-Cas Flying for 15 hours nonstop – fun or boring?

To fly nonstop 15 hours would all depend on how the plane is set up, if they had the plane designed where people can walk around, eat, have mini beds, or laptops it would be fun to experience. From experience a plane ride that was 6 hours was too much for me so I would have to be occupied in some type of way. If you had to go through the whole 15 hours like you would on a normal plane ride would be really boring and people would be irritated and annoyed. The size of the planes doesn't make a difference if they're not doing something to keep people busy.

10/22/14
AndrewFA1 Would you fly in one of these things?

Because aircraft are much bigger and would be harder to explore closer to the ground. Also power-chutes are easier to land and fly. Thats why power-chutes are safer.

10/22/14
AndrewFA1 Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

it means that if everyone could do the same for everyone else, everyone would be happy and thankful all the time, and there would be no desperate people.

10/22/14
HunterA2 Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

Well... I don't think I would be able to do it. Eating bugs is teetering on the edge of my limits. But if it was a cultural thing and I was visiting a country that did eat bugs for most of their nutrition then I would try it.

10/22/14
HunterA2 Can you draw better than a 40,000 year old?

WOW. This is also fascinating. Thinking they can date something based on the chemicals in it is so cool. I'm not big on geology but this is just flat out cool.

10/22/14
AdriannaA3 Hate taking the bus to school? Try swimming!

I do not think its because they like to swim but because they want a good education to have a good career in the future. Who would swim in really bad weather for fun. I think its because they really want a good education.

10/22/14
DaisyA3 Would you fly in one of these things?

Powerchutes might be safer than other aircraft's because they can slowdown in the air and aircrafts like airplanes can't slow down as fast as powerchutes but that is just my opinion.

10/22/14
AdriannaA3 Students give pizza driver $1,200 tip

It demonstrates that you can do something nice for one person that you would like to do to everyone.That is why they gave the pizza delivery guy a big tip, because they would like to do that to everyone just to be nice.

10/22/14
CeciliaA1-Eas Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

I think this is gross! I don't know why people would eat bugs. I think bugs are gross animals who should not be eaten. I really can't believe people would allow this to happen and I can't believe people will actually go to this restaurant and pay to eat chocolate covered bugs. I think this whole thing is crazy and gross. I would never, under any circumstances eat a bug!
