...swords? As in the long pointy things?
Yep, Katanas. 6 teens, no older than 17, walking around carrying swords.
They had to shut the nearby primary school down because they were heading in that direction.
Next thing, there were loads of armed cops everywhere shouting at them to drop the weapons.

There's a family of scumbags near here, dad, kids, all of them into dealing drugs. Someone was probably dealing on their turf.

The murder on Monday was a family thing as well. 15 year old stabbed his dad.

On your nerves, English is getting.
In a sentence, the order of words, do you ponder.
Just be like Yoda.

Or, that should be: Like Yoda, be like.

Primary school in the UK, as in, proper school and not pre-school or nursery, is ages 5-6.

I started proper school at 3 because I could read and write at 2 years old All the other kids were 5 and 6 years old.
I never went to nursery or pre-school at all.

Did my final exams at 14, left school at 15 and got a job

The UK is almost the same.

England has Nursery, Pre-school, Reception, KS1, KS2, and the secondary school is KS3, KS4 and KS5.
Years are deemed as 1-12 across the two separate schools.

Scotland has a simple system. Primary School and Secondary School.
Primary 1-7, then secondary school is 1st year to 5th year, and a 6th year known as Prefect should the student wish to stay at secondary school for an extra year before going to either a college or a university.

Then there's the exam systems... GCSE and SGCSE, O-Level and A-Level, and then College and Uni with their own systems of exams... et al.

Travel around and see the world outside of a lab before returning to the lab and becoming bored again.
Sorry, guys, I was playing with the username code to see if I could get people to join in banning the spambots
If only Unregistered would report them as well.
