Lifted, a short by Pixar.


"Every time you stop a school you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his own tail. It won't fatten the dog." - Mark Twain

True or false, discuss amongst yourselves.

Thats an interesting thought. I can see where it could be true, because a good majority of those who are in jail are school drop outs.

both of my brothers went to LBJ high school in Austin, which used slightly converted prison blueprints for the design of the school.
so, it was kind of both...

In Rockport, the city's architect was the same for the new jail and all the new additions to the school. I got put in jail one night and it felt like being in a new wing of the high school!
JAIL?
or Jail?

What did you do? I'm totally curious.

Not that it couldn't have been me. I'm just lucky that everytime I've broken the law the cops weren't around.

I didn't sit down fast enough at a high school football game.

Long story, don't move to Rockport.

I think there's a little bit of truth in it, but its not so simple as that. Juvenile delinquency doesn't come soley out of lack of education.

That would take care of a lot of the more violent and petty sorts of crime, because education definitely equals opportunity. And if you've got a better option you won't go around knocking off liquor stores.

On the other hand, there is a section of people from every section of society who committ crime no matter what their education or background. Like the millionaire white collar criminals, who arguably do more damage to society than 10 liquor store robbers put together. They're usually highly educated but break the law anyway. Its just in their nature.

*nod* I agree. I think it's in some people's nature, regardless of economic and educational opportunities, but I think overall it would cut down crime.

Definitely. Plus, it helps economically and socially. Education is the key to a whole host of problems.

I agree, some people will break laws b/c it is in their nature. Other people need an institutional setting, whether that is prison or a mental health facility. Sadly, it's usually prison, b/c it is easier to get membership to.

Maybe we should develop some kind of monestary/nunnery systerm for these people. Then they can have the institutional setting without committing the crime.

Personally I would totally join a monestary, as long as all the other monks were hot, of course.

Agreed. Though, I do wonder if that's a genuine Twain quote. Something about it doesn't sound quite Twainish.

Still, whether it was Twain or not, I definitely agree with the sentiment.
