Default And you think you have problems measuring something twice.

Think about this poor young thing, and the public school system.

He probably met her in school.

The sad thing is, logical thinking isn't part of a school curriculum; kids teach themselves. The lucky ones get into riddles and puzzles for fun...or at least used to. (Remember how Chess Club was a metaphor for nerdy?)

This is the generation of the future. Eventually they are the ones who will make major decisions that effect all of us.

Its going to be a lot sooner than later. They are shortly going to rein in the NRAs nonsense gun laws that the NRA pushed on America.


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

They vote, too. Well, maybe not this one. She'd get lost trying to find her polling place.
And, she probably thinks the NRA authored the 2nd amendment, too.

Why bother with thinking when you have a cell phone with an app? Here, let me show you...let's see, where is that math app. Hmmmmm Oh well, can't find it, maybe I'll play candy crush instead. oooooh, that's fun.

The good news is that most of the time, young people don't bother voting,

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
