Very sad indeed. I imagine the boy's mom couldn't afford black shoes, but the other stories about black kids being disciplined more frequently than others is either discrimination or there are other things at work here.

Django Unchained and Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio says he is planning to take a significant break from filming and concentrate on his environmental campaigning.
In an interview with Germany's mass circulation daily Bild, the 38-year-old American actor said: "I am a bit drained. I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out.''
"I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment,'' added DiCaprio, in comments published in German.
DiCaprio is currently starring in Quentin Tarantino's blood-soaked spaghetti Western tribute Django Unchained, which picked up two Golden Globes on Sunday.
He has also recently filmed The Great Gatsby in Sydney, directed by Baz Luhrmann and Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street.
He burnished his green credentials in the Bild interview, saying: "My roof is covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50km a day. That can be done with a plug.''
Three films in two years. Will he survive this horrific workload? Hollywood sweatshops, the horror!
"...fly around the world doing good for the environment." Say what? Apparently telecommuting for the good of the environment won't cut it. Maybe Al Gore will loan him a jet.


"My roof is covered with solar panels. My car is electric. A normal person does not drive more than 50km a day. That can be done with a plug.''

I never eat there, but this is just lame. http://www.buzzfeed.com/copyranter/subways-amazingly-stupid-response-to-footlong-con

Especially the statement from Subway

Quote:
"With regards to the size of the bread and calling it a footlong, "SUBWAY FOOTLONG" is a registered trademark as a descriptive name for the sub sold in Subway® Restaurants and not intended to be a measurement of length."
Yeah, its not served in an underground mass transit train either you bunch of morons. The only reason they are 11 inches is because they cut costs and thought that people wouldn't notice.

How much do you want to bet that this triggers a website that people can upload pics of their sandwiches with a ruler next to it and Subway eventually has to cave in and call it something else. God knows that retooling for a longer loaf of bread would be too costly!

Sorry to burst your bubble but that was just baked by an untrained or lazy employee. The bread comes in frozen sticks of dough and they are measured by weight and all of them are about 10" long. After they thaw they are stretched to fit the pan which is 12". Then they are placed in a humidifier to rise then baked. If done properly they will be longer than a foot by at least an inch, but they are all the same amount of dough. Furthermore if allowed to rise too long they can get pretty huge but your not getting anymore or less. My dad owned a Subway for about a decade while I was growing up, I'm pretty sure I've eaten more sandwiches than "Jared"!!!

No bubble burst here. I figure if they sell an item that is called a foot-long it should be at least a foot long, untrained or lazy employees or not.

But I did learn something about Subway I did not know before! Thanks for that.

Okay...
If it really were a foot long, New York would have to ban it, so get over it!

And, does anyone think a quarter pounder is really a quarter pound of beef?

Isn't Subway supposed to be healthy food? I don't think that Bloomberg in his infinite ignorance would ban healthy food. Aw shoot, I just realized what I wrote. Bloomberg's ignorance knows no bounds.

Well, I never eat there either. But you are right, that is false advertising.

Actually the Quarter Pounder states that it is 1/4 pound before cooking. As to whether or not it is actually beef...your guess is as good as mine on that.

I used to be the night manager of a Subway down in Florida, when they installed our humidifier and oven so we could bake our bread, took us a while to get the humidifier setting right so the bread would rise properly.
