I was browsing entered bands in this “Live at Squamish” festival, and I found this SUPER GOOD band, The Statistics. You all should vote for them, and listen to their music… because I’m a fan now.

Uniform Policy Protest of the Day: 12-year-old Chris Whitehead showed up at his school wearing a skirt to protest a policy that prohibits boys from wearing shorts in the summer.
The year 8 student took advantage of a loophole in the Impington Village College dress code, which doesn’t expressly ban boys from wearing skirts. “In the summer girl students are allowed to wear skirts but boys are not allowed to wear shorts,” Chris said. “We think that this discriminates against boys.”
Chris’s mother Liz says she supports her son’s actions and applauds him for “taking action on what he believes in.”
Headteacher Robert Campbell praised Chris as “a very bright and articulate student” with a possible future in politics, but gave no indication that the school would relent on its no-shorts policy. “Our uniform policy had a significant consultation and ours is typical of most schools in Cambridgeshire and the consensus was we were going to go for that,” Campbell is quoted as saying.
