SMITHFIELD, N.C. A high school teacher was suspended for a classroom experiment that caused several students to vomit after drinking large amounts of milk.

Jeff Ferguson, a chemistry and physics teacher at Smithfield-Selma High School, organized the experiment last week to test the body's ability to neutralize acids in milk.

>>It was intended to show the body can handle only so much before a natural reaction occurs and the person vomits. Out of 42 students in two classes, at least five did just that.<<

I remember teachers who didn't need milk to bring on such natural body functions.

Who needs an overdose of milk to puke in school? I used to puke my guts out just from the overdose of political correctness that got pushed down my throat during my years in the American Gulags, er, "public schools".

"White people baaaaad, brown people goooood, white people baaaaaad, black people goooooood, white people baaaaaaad, everyone else gooooooooood." On and on and on and on until I was puking like a sick dog on a tilt-o-whirl. To this day I carry a deep disgust for public education.

an investigation by a law firm hired by the school district.

This isn't the parents, folks - this is the district honchos eating their own.

When I was in school, the aim was to get milk to come out your nose, not to puke it.

When I ran track in Junior High School, the coach would have RTP days (Run Til you Puke). These were 440's interlaced with wind-sprints... we ran them for an hour or until you puked, whichever came first.

Ok, let me get this straight, we are going to suspend a teacher for giving the students narcotics? no not narcotics Cigarettes? No, not cigarettes. Alcohol? No, not alcohol.

Milk. We are suspending a teacher for giving the students milk. Give me a break.

Reminds me of the time my child had to stay in after school. Reason: Talking too softly.

Strange but true!

The teacher's attorney, Lamar Armstrong, said students were not required to participate,...

So, this was really to demonstrate that high schoolers are brainless idiots who will do anything stupid if the other kids do it.

Fire the teacher. We already knew that.
