SOME SHENANIGANS ARE SO VILE, it would be inadequate to describe them as mere stupid jokes. Repugnant acts of tomfoolery may be the staple of some juvenile B-movies, but when the worst of these occur in real life, they must be strongly repudiated.Such a foolish and repulsive act happened last month when an Oakland Mills High School student-athlete secretly urinated into the water bottle used by the Hammond High lacrosse team.It was a horrible experience for Hammond coach, Larry Luthe, and two of his players, all of whom drank from it.The April 10 incident caused Mr. Luthe to vomit and take a series of shots for hepatitis B along with his players.

First came the decorations for the bags: a few words of inspiration, a drawing, and a heart with a pound sign scrawled inside. Next came the lunch: a turkey sandwich, an apple, an Oreo cookie and a water bottle — with most of the food paid for, and prepared by, Coppin State University students. And then came the social media campaign. The students huddled for photos to post on Instagram and Twitter, tagging their entries with #HashTagLunchBag, as they became the first Baltimore group to participate in an effort to feed homeless people that has been spread through social networking sites.

Can we carry our own sealed bottled water through airport security checkpoints yet? I really resent having to pay $3 for water at the airport. How can we get this policy changed? This does seem ridiculous. But if you recall the coverage of the trials of the men accused of plotting to blow up trans-Atlantic flights, you might ask why would anyone want to risk national security for a bottle of Evian. Bottom line: You can't take even a sealed water bottle through airport security. Don't even think about it. But you don't have to pay $3 for a bottle of water.

Let's see: Our Wisconsin Supreme Court is choking each other. Our New Jersey lawmakers are threatening to punch each other in the head. But when it comes to crazy fights in government, we're still way behind Afghanistan.  At least the fight in their Parliament was over something important: The impeachment of President Hamid Karzai. Our conflicts have generally been over such noble causes as getting even after personal slights.  Nevertheless, this showdown raised once again that timeless question: Which would you rather get hit by?

Whether you're paddling, pedaling or camping, equipment experts offer advice about how to enjoy the outdoors as safely as possible. Stay equipped. Every renter of outdoor equipment requires that renters follow laws related to sporting gear; shops may enforce additional guidelines, as well. Personal flotation devices are required on watercraft (some shops require renters to wear PFDs at all times) and bike shops make helmets easily accessible. Follow the rules. "Stay to the right, pedestrians have the right of way, the NCR trail is trash-free," says Hunt Valley Village's Kate Wright.

You can do it in Seattle, Chicago and Athens, Ga. But on the streets of downtown Baltimore, don't look for recycling bins to take that empty plastic water bottle or already-read newspaper off your hands. There aren't any. As a growing number of cities give pedestrians the same recycling options that many residents have, Baltimore has opted out. City officials say one deterrent is cost: Baltimore nearly trashed its residential curbside recycling program this year for financial reasons.

I reuse my water bottles to save money and plastic. How long is too long to keep an old bottle around? This is one case where refills aren't necessarily good. Your saliva can leave behind protein that bacteria thrive on. Bacteria will breed around the rim of your used plastic water bottle, and inside it, particularly in the heat. Washing out a bottle with hot, soapy water will extend its life, as will keeping it out of bacteria-friendly environs like a hot car. Still, you shouldn't refill it more than a few times.
