Gross-out dare likely made San Diego students sick

SAN DIEGO >> School officials say lunchtime dares to drink a weird concoction that included hot sauce, carrots, salt and milk likely caused 22 students to get sick at a San Diego elementary school — if all of them were actually ill.

San Diego schools spokesman Jack Brandais says Friday that children at Audubon Elementary dared each other to drink from the mixture Thursday. Some reported upset stomachs and nausea afterward.

Teachers then made a general announcement to see if other students had stomach problems. Brandais says that call brought out students "who may not have had problems at all."

Of the 22 students, 18 were taken to the hospital, and all were later released.

As a precaution, the school's kitchen, cafeteria and outdoor lunch areas were sanitized overnight.

Probably the amount of salt they put gave them the squirts. Other than that, nothing wrong. Just like eating a taco with carrot cake and some milk. So how's REAL news, like Egypt and how they won overthrowing their government?

SA, how's about real news, like how the CCOH is looking at using HPD's insane raise as a guise to "increase revenues" i.e. taxes, how Obamacare is on the verge of implementation and ready to cripple the very voters who elected him by making them part-time workers, or like how the state and county's roads have systemically deteriorated over the past 20 years to the literal point of 3rd world quality, or how Obama has reneged or unfulfilled almost every campaign promise made from his first campaign till now. Yeah, try reporting on that to earn your subscriber's hard earned money instead of this absolute shibai "news".

So your not happy with Obama I see. Too bad you place so much blame on 1 person and 1 era. It might be important enough to come up with alterior reasons as to why we are in this sad state of affairs.
