4 Teens Who Challenged Laws and Won
1. In 1965, John Tinker, 15 ,and Beth Tinker, 13 ,decided that they wanted to protest the war in Vietnam by wearing black armbands despite the fact that their school district said that this would not be allowed beacuse it would be disruptive.

Oreo Psychology (What How You Eat an Oreo Says About You)
1. You eat the whole thing once ~ You are fun,reckless,and carefree. Consequently, you cannot be trusted.
2. One bite at a time ~ You're in the majority; that's how most people eat them. Wich means you are ordinary and boring.
3. Slow and methodical nibbles, examining the results of each bite afterward ~ You follow the rules. You're tidy and orderly. You pay attention to details. No one likes you.
4. Dunked in milk ~ Everyone likes you beacuse you are always upbeat. You can turn a rainy day into fun and always look for the good things in people. You are in complete denial about life.
5. Twisted apart, the creme inside, then the cookie ~ You have a highly curious nature and enjoy taking things apart to find out exactly how they work. Unfortunately, you don't have the slightest clue about putting them back together. Consequently , you are rarely invited to other peoples homes.
6. Twisted apart, the creme inside, and toss the cookie ~ You know what you want and go straight for it. This is also known as being greedy and self-centered.
7. Just the cookie, not the creme inside ~ Get help.
That is Psychology, don't expect me to write good things.
9 Annoying Things That Some Teens Do at the Mall
The mall is a popular hangout; you can buy stuff, meet your friends, check out new people, and generally chill. You can also completely annoy other shoppers and store personnel by behaving badly. Here are some of the most common mall offenses.
1. Climbing up the escalator the wrong way. When little kids do this, their mommies usually stop them. If you're old enough to go to a mall without a parent, you're old enough to know better. It's dangerous to yourself and others.
2. Shouting to friends on an upper level from below, and vice-versa. Trying to catch someone's attention is one thing, but having a full-blown conversation (with the rest of the mall listening) is, well, stupid. Don't do it. And don't yell to your friends sitting five tables away in the food court. Your amusing anecdote isn't nearly as funny to total strangers.
3. Making out in the mall. Kissing, gropping, getting hot and heavy in public? Gross. If you want to work up a sweat with your sweetie, do it somewhere private.
4. Running through the mall. Think it's funny to race your friends to the fountain, pushing shoppers out of the way as you go? Think again.
5. Dropping objects from an upper level. This rude but common pastime can hurt someone, and get you kicked out of the mall, maybe even permanently.
6. Stealing. Irritating, immature, illegal, and definitely NOT cool.
7. Staring at people or making fun of them. Do you think these people aren't real just beacuse you don't know them? Better keep your comments to yourself. And try to stop staring, it's pretty rude!
8. "Decorating" the mall with graffiti. It's also against the law.
9. Bumping into people without apologizing. It's called being rude, and doing it gives all teens a bad name. Grow up.
4 Smart (but Fun) Things to Do at the Mall
1. People-watch. This can usually provide hours of fun. Check out the weird outfits. Try to make up stories of that person or people, like imagine relationships between couple you see, try to be a match-maker. Watch the people. Invent a game: see who can spot the weirdest hairdo, the best shoes, the person with the most nose-rings or jewelry. Be discreet, please.
2. Listen to music. The listening booths at most large record stores give you a chance to hear new music for free. Some stores even let you listen to any CD they have in the store.
3. Eat free food. See how many free food samples you can pick up at food stands; you might even be able to score a whole meal.
4. Shop. That is, basically, what it's there for.
If you really want to go to Aunt Whosis's house for Thanksgiving, try telling your parents you're suddenly developed a bad case of syngenesophobia. Or try convincing them that it's unfair to ground you, given your poinephobia. Those excuses probably won't work, but you might get "extra credit" fro your improved vocabulary.
