"It's very upsetting to get abusive emails, instant messages and to have nasty websites or social network profiles set up to invite people to post offensive remarks about you so called Cyber Bullying.

There are ways that people who send emails can be tracked by internet service providers and the police. All emails carry information which shows the path the email has taken to get to your computer."

'If the World Was Crazy' by Shel Silverstein

If the world was crazy, you know what I'd eat?
A big slice of soup and a whole quart of meat,
A lemonade sandwich, and then I might try
Some roasted ice cream or a bicycle pie,
A nice notebook salad, an underwear roast,
An omelet of hats and some crisp cardboard toast,
A thick malted milk made from pencils and daisies,
And that's what I'd eat if the world was crazy.

If the world was crazy, you know what I'd wear?
A chocolate suit and a tie of eclair,
Some marshmallow earmuffs, some licorice shoes,
And I'd read a paper of peppermint news.
I'd call the boys "Suzy" and I'd call the girls "Harry,"
I'd talk through my ears, and I always would carry
A paper umbrella for when it grew hazy
To keep in the rain, if the world was crazy.

If the world was crazy, you know what I'd do?
I'd walk on the ocean and swim in my shoe,
I'd fly through the ground and I'd skip through the air,
I'd run down the bathtub and bathe on the stair.
When I met somebody I'd say "G'bye, Joe,"
And when I was leaving--then I'd say "Hello."
And the greatest of men would be silly and lazy
So I would be king...if the world was crazy.

Phineas and Ferb - Dance Baby



"Dance, baby, dance, baby, hands in the air
Go down to the store and buy a wicker chair
Sweat, baby, sweat, baby, wave your feet
Throw off your shoes and dance to the beat
Just dance, baby (dance, baby)
Dance, baby (dance, baby)

Wave your arms in the air (woo, ooo, ooo)
Wear sunglasses for the glare, yeah, yeah
Shake your feet to the beat (woo, ooo, ooo)
Make sure you get a window seat, yeah

Sweat, baby, sweat, baby, soak your hat
Wring it out, take it to the laundromat
Dance, baby, dance, baby, wave your feet
Throw off your shoes and dance to the beat

Just dance, baby (dance, baby)
Dance, baby (dance, baby)

Dance, baby, dance, baby, shake your hips
Go down to the pier and get some fish and chips
Groove, baby, groove, baby, motivate your limbs
Never eat a cactus if you're out of shape

Shake your feet to the beat, get a window seat
You can feel the heat and you feel complete
You're poppin' it, lockin' it, round-the-clockin' it
Everybody's talkin' it 'cause you're rockin' it
Just dance, baby!"
