A funny thing I just read on Penny Arcade that reminded me of when I was in Grade 9:
D&D and the devil: One man is trying to send up radical Christianity by taking it seriously
One of the first projects that my 2nd Art teacher in grade 9 (I got moved when my first class was over-filled) gave us to do was to draw a head shot. I can't remember what I drew, but my friend Steve drew a hobgoblin's head from the Monster Manual. When he went to turn it in, she wouldn't accept it.
"Why not?" he asked.
"Because it has to do with Dungeons & Dragons." she replied.
"What's wrong with Dungeons & Dragons?" he asked.
"Dungeons & Dragons make people kill themselves." she replied.
I probably got into the conversation at that point. I don't remember what else was said, but what I will always remember was what we did for the rest of the year in her class. Any time we would act up or stuff, we would say "Dungeons & Dragons made me do it!"
She threw out so much our work that year. Anything that had anything remotely to do with D&D, she would not accept; even if it had nothing to do with why we originally made/drawn something. Even our Ren & Stimpy clay figures we made she wouldn't accept. The kiln always happened to be broken, or was already being used that day. Finally after a while she just said straight up she wasn't accepting them. I think I did 6 or 7 final projects at the end of the year. We only had to do 3, but she kept rejecting my work for whatever reason.
Interestingly enough, her main job at the school was as a guidance councellor. In fact, while I was doing all that crap in her class, she was great for me when I was having a problem with another one of my teachers who had a tendency of not liking the hockey players in her class (or their direct relatives, in my case) and I tried getting out of her class before I failed it. That teacher would give me zeros if I corrected a mistake I noticed on my diagrams, or would mark stuff wrong on my tests when it was right (My cousin & I: C - wrong. 3 People by us: C - right)
Dark Dungeons: The Movie Kickstarter has made its target. ($14,980/$12,500)
Strangely enough: I've had a few characters die on me; and suicide has not crossed my brain once.
