LOL, "Stranger". LOL!

Unfortunately I can't hit the bong, not do I drink that hard stuff any more. Good suggestion though!!!! If they'd legalize weed, I just might take you up on THAT one though. Wish they'd hurry it up........

When you get to me my age, sometimes odd old memories and peoples names will pop out of nowhere. But that's rare, hehe!!!

You have a great day out there with "whatever" it is that you're doing. ROFLMBO!!! I love it!

of all people you never value what you know from what other people know. you value your self by what no one knows.except you. that's true wisdom.

Strange re-definition of "communist" you have done here. What we have is an oligarchy of rich plutocrats. There is nothing communist about it.
Wonderful

Have you taken a look at any of the current 8th grade tests in social studies? Not quite the same.

Just took the math test and got all the regular questions right, missed the bonus question because of a slip of the finger on the keypad.

No. But think about this:

If it was possible to go back in a time machine to 1912 and bring just about any 14-year old kid from the Midwest to the present time, you could show him just about any modern piece of farm machinery, be it the biggest, most modern combine, corn planter, or wheat drill and he would recognize what it was and understand the mechanical principles by which it operated. You cannot take the average American 14-year old today, show him the same modern machine, and get an explanation of the basic principles of how it works.
