I think it is more a realization that condoms do break occasionally and women do have impulses and memory lapses, so its not a political belief about free loading but an acceptance of reality.



"Reality" is if you want something you need to pay for it. Not talking life-changing amounts.

A woman relying on a guy using a condom for birth control is crazy and lazy.
Tolerance is the virtue of believing in nothing

All through my early education, kids who were considered quick or bright skipped grades. Not forced to be held back. What happened to you?



Was already the youngest student in a "difficult" school (I had classmates in their 20s toward the end). Skipping would have put me with kids 3 and 4 years older than me. Mom and Pop said nevermind. So I was way ahead due to parental effort and an instilled desire for education, but was yoked and languished in school, failing every year of jr and sr high. Given the same material in a condensed version via summer school and I left with a high grade Regents.

Multiply this by several million kids every year and we're missing an investment opportunity greater than getting Apple at a dollar.

Yeah that was pretty much done for by the time I was in school. I was testing at an 11th grade level in math at the age of 8. In jr high and high school I did take AP courses but even so, they were not challenging

Holy moley!

Your school was the coolest

I wish my high school had offered AP courses.

It would have made my AP career much easier to.learn

7 year old had playoff baseball game tonight. We have been working on hitting the last few months. It has really clicked recently. Today he came up with bases loaded top of the last inning down by 1 and crushed 150 foot triple over center fielders head. For all the pain in the ass things that kids do moments like this sure make you proud. Especially when other parents come up to you about the hit. Tomorrow is championship game.

I donít have kids and never ever want them, so I donít really have a dog in this fight.

But school isnít just about learning. Itís about socializing.

Home schooled kids miss out on that. And a heck of a lot of them end up as friggin weirdos.



LoL....what do you consider a weirdo?

One third of my High School class failed the last month of school and got stiffed of their diplomas at the graduation ceremony.

lol I am sure there is someone that will take a wager. Set the line on todays championship. We played them 2 times in regular season and tied both times. They don't play extra innings at this level. First game was 10-10 and second game was 12-12.
