    Could have a Texas Monthly thread really.

    Not long but great read. These kids are fucking awesome.

    Presidio Independent School District’s student body is one of the poorest in Texas. Ninety-three percent of its students are economically disadvantaged and qualify for free or reduced-price lunches, and more than half are English-language learners. Yet over the past decade, the high school’s rocketry club has repeatedly outperformed prestigious magnet schools and science academies with twice its budget—and easy access to big-box craft and hardware stores.

    That was great.

    “Without being presumptuous, I think I am one of the top money launderers who ever worked for the government,” Vega says. “But I have something that is called integrity.”

    It would be a dream to have a category of expenses of model-related.
    But Vega says that the total was much less and that he blew it all on wine, jets, and other model-related expenses.

    You know there is someone in the government doing something similar somewhere in the world, right now as well.

    Me too. although the one kid was pretending to be remorseful while shifting blame onto the school still. “They didn’t teach us enough detail about the holocaust.” What more did you need, dude
