In debate class, the students had to debate euthanasia. The kid who was supposed to argue for it went first. He started talking about how necessary it was, and how terrible it was that we didn’t use it more before. He was giving all these examples of people that needed to be euthanized: people who needed amputations, people with cavities, babies.
It became very clear very quickly that either this kid was a monster or he was talking about something else.
The teacher asked him: “Charles, are you talking about euthanasia or anesthesia?”
The kid replied: “I have made… a terrible mistake.”
