    His father’s hair must be solid grey by now.

    Was that the tallest tree you could find, Lio? And did you bring along some rations (e.g., chocolate bars, oranges, cookies)?

    If only Lio’s grades scaled as well as he does.

    They don’t send out report cards any more. It’s all done via a web site and you can check your child’s progress whenever you like. Of course, Lio’s dad shouldn’t be surprised by his poor performance in school by now. Lio isn’t part of the “hive mind” way of thinking that’s required in school now.

    Hive’s always been required.
    .
    You want fresh potable water out of the tap? heat,? ice cream? You have to rely on everyone else to get it.
    .
    Or you can do it all yourself hiding out in the trees in Saskatchewan

    “Lio isn’t part of the “hive mind” way of thinking that’s required in school now.” … A singer-songwriter named Harry Chapin wrote a song called “Flowers Are Red” about a school’s efforts to incorporate his secretary’s son into the “hive mind.” Google the lyrics … and then be amazed that they were written 36 years ago.

    That’s a good strategy, Lio.
