    I had to take the MMPI about 6 times. I had it dang near memorized long before my retirement.

    I also got into trouble when I let my quack doctor prescribe Ritalin for me, took it for a week and not liking the effects, forgot all about it. I also forgot I was supposed to report it until something jogged my memory a couple of years later that I had taken it for a week. I reported it then and had to go through a questioning session; in former times they would have had me hooked up to a polygraph but by then it had been pretty much exposed as quackery itself.

    Waiting for a reload and tackling is a good idea, although as in Newtown people will pay a terrible price for it a lot of the time. Shooting back usually isn't a good idea when there are enough targets around for a mass shooting.

    I wonder if school staff might someday take to wearing kevlar or something even if the probability of use is low and the probability of discomfort high.

      but even at my lower level clearance I had to list whether I had ever been treated for mental or behavioral health issues, by who, and sign a release for the investigator to talk to any providers.
