    Florida Substitute Teacher Fired, Accused of Wizardry

    A Florida teacher may have to pull an unemployment check out of his hat after performing magic in front of students, according to reports.

    Jim Piculas said he made a toothpick disappear and reappear in front of students at the Rushe Middle School in Land 'O Lakes, Fla., Local6.com reported. He said he later got a call from the supervisor of teachers, saying he had been accused of wizardry.

    "I get a call the middle of the day from head of supervisor of substitute teachers. He says, 'Jim, we have a huge issue. You can't take any more assignments. You need to come in right away,'" he told Local6.com.

    Piculas said he’s concerned the incident may prevent him from being considered for future jobs.

    Special Note:

    This was his second trick...his first trick was in the front office where he made the administrators' brains disappear...
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    And apparently those who can't teach play with toothpicks.

    Speaking of zealotry, the Ben Stein film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is an interesting cautionary reminder of the dangers of intellectual zealotry, within the area of scientific exploration. For those interested, it's in limited release, now.

    As a side note: I was the only one in the entire theater. I saw one of the drones come in and look around briefly, focus on me, then leave while shaking his head. What he couldn't possibly see is that I was sitting there shaking mine. Some days, I weep for humanity. (Only some.)
