    Solar powered one would have been a better calculator to use.

    That was in an earlier version of the script. We also had a version that said iPad.

    I was shopping for a calculator once, years ago, when solars were new. The salesman said to me "You wouldn’t believe how many people ask me: "what if there’s no light in the room?’

    It does a brain good to calculate without it being done for you.

    Yeah, but not everyone has good brain power or enough fingers.

    It’s amazing all this fuss over homework now. My nephew is going through this too. In my day there was no homework, even in middle and high school. You would find yourself on the football team whether you liked it or not, though.

    Not in my town! We had a famously losing football team, and academic achievement was everything. Very white collar town. In Kindergarten you were expected to start choosing colleges to apply to. So we had homework.

    I didn’t play football and wasn’t forced to. Did have some homework though. Most of it just a pain keeping me from my reading and drawing.
