    It always looks so ridiculous when people are annoyed at kids for spending so much time on their phones. When kids do that, they’re just imitating what they see adults doing all the time.

    So what good does schooling do when you go to a big, old inner-city school with no playground – with no schoolyard at all for that matter – like I did growing up in Philadelphia? In that case, schooling really doesn’t pay off after all.

    There are lots of words that have different meanings in science and in everyday speech. “Work”, for example, means something different in physics than it means in regular speech. People sound ridiculous when they insist that the scientific use of a term is the only correct definition, and the normal use of a word is therefore always incorrect (as in this case).

    If someone who wants them in color is a looser, I guess a person who wants them in black-and-white would be a tighter.

    I have never seen it either.

    I don’t know where the crazy idea came from that EVERYBODY watches it. A lot of people have never seen it!

    Cut off it’s head and gut it? The Calvin I know would normally say “NEAT! Can I watch?”

    No, this is very realistic. This is the way a real kid like Calvin would act. Violence is fun as long as it’s make-believe or harmless, but when it comes to the death of a real living thing, that’s a whole different matter!

    The most entertaining thing about the old tic-tac-toe computer at the Franklin Institute was that it was analog, not digital! You’d see and hear relays clacking all over the place as it figured out its next move.

    It’s a shame that’s not there any more.

    But there’s nothing I miss more than the monstrousZeiss Projector in the old Franklin Institute planetarium! I just thought that was the coolest machine ever. Without that, the planetarium there is BORING.

    Now those two are where the good stuff comes from.

    You can get good stuff from just about every country — except China.

    When I need a new shaver, I always get a Phillips Norelco shaver. But I always have to check to make sure the country of origin is the Netherlands before I buy it! I bought one that said “Made in China” once, and it was horrible! Norelco shavers that are made in China are nothing at all like the ones that are made in Netherlands.

    And of course, you always have to be careful to avoid electronic equipment that say “Made in China”!

    Traveling in style!

    My, what big feet the boy and girl in that picture have!

    My cousin in Philadelphia used to have a front yard full of 4- and 5-leaf clovers.
