    Back when people rented videos (rather than streaming or downloading them), the biggest chain was called “Blockbuster.” Always struck me as a bit weird that it was named for a really big bomb…

    Actually, the company got its name from another meaning of ‘blockbuster’: “Something, such as a film or book, that sustains widespread popularity and achieves enormous sales.” (from the American Heritage Dictionary). So the weird thing is that something that “achieves enormous success” should be named after a really big bomb.

    Either that, or Mrs. Olsen is stingy with the +s. Really liked this one today. A “version” of Caulfield I can easily stomach.

    I have never done a book report. I wonder what that is all about, but it sounds self-explanatory. Some other strips talk about summer reading lists. That is really crazy. Well, you know how it is, you can’t let anything get in the way of sports. Summer was a time for sports camps, especially. Football really pays off for the average person later in life compared to academics. When I watch football on tv I can kind of follow what’s going much better than if I had never played, so I really appreciate that. And in combination with the mandatory sports I was forced into, I’m especially thankful for how they placed me in math classes with teachers who didn’t teach. You can’t even imagine how well that worked for me. You know how math builds on itself? Although they were quite aware that, who isn’t, they weren’t interested in helping anyone, except themselves. Ever heard of an algebra class where the teacher just shoots the breeze every day with the disruptive students? Nothing written on the board, no tests, no quizzes, no homework, no checking of homework. Looking back now it seems like fraud.
