The sayings of Sylas v17 - Cell phones

We were sitting around the lunch table and I was explaining to Lukas and Sylas about why kids can't have cell phones:

Me: Studies show that children under 16 who use a cell phone can get cancer in their brain
Lukas: What do you mean?
Me: Cell phones give off radiation and if a child is still growing that radiation can go into their brain and cause cancer
Sylas: And then you'd need to get a metal brain like Terry Fox!

Question: What happens when the largest elementary school in North America gets 20 new portables?

Answer: Your student population grows from 1600 students to 1900. Oh and don't forget that's just Kindergarten to Grade 5

"Thorncliffe Park Public School is the largest elementary school in North America with a staggering 1900 students. In the summer of 2008 the soccer field and baseball diamond were paved over and 20 new portables were erected in their place prompting fears of further over-crowding."
