This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen on the Internets:
For a better understanding of “Total Eclipse of the Heart”:

True story: at my high school, seniors were allowed to go off campus for lunch. When you drove back into campus from your sweet ass lunch at Quizno’s or the cheap Mexican place, you would drive by all of the lowly underclassmen eating outside. Most seniors would take this opportunity to blare some sort of rap muuuuusick (what was popular then? Usher? Outkast?) and my friends and I vowed that we would never be that obnoxious (or at least not that particular brand of obnoxious). Instead, we would blare ridiculous, embarrassing music, like — you guessed it — Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Those were the days.
Let’s all reminisce, shall we?
Or check out the literal video version, because it’s amazing.

Because I’m a super nerd, I like to look at Google Trends and see what the kids are Googling these days. Obviously when I saw “see you at the pole” as one of the top terms, I had to check it out. Do you know what immediately came into my head? Stripping and pole dancers. Perhaps “see you at the pole” is used as a challenge for pole dancers–like a walk off…but crazier. Maybe we’re talking about Santa and the North Pole. I don’t know.
See You At The Pole is actually a day each year when Christian students gather at the flag pole and pray before school. Ummm. What a let down.
Two million students are expected to have participated this morning in the See You At The Pole 2008.
This raises questions of the separation between church and state. While this occurs outside of school hours and is student led, should administrators be allowed to participate? Where are the lines drawn? What do you think would happen if I’ll See You At The Pole 2008 was all about devil worship?
Lots of thoughts for your Wednesday morning.
Pole dancing is way more fun to think about, right? But what do you think?
