    Do you really have to ask? Honestly, don’t you have horror stories about teachers who can’t seem to use correct grammar, don’t know any mental math, and/or can’t be fired over their performance because they’re tenured? And BTW, I am a Teacher.

    My employer insurance didn’t cover orthodontic surgery!

    Just get a small spring and tape it in one end, that’s what the toy manufacturers did. The spring rattles and twangs, sounding like a real lightsaber.

    Missed my HS 10 yr for a Job Interview (didn’t get the job). Now I’m going to miss College 10 yr, because they scheduled it during the school year, (little counter-intuitive).

    Exactly. Bees usually won’t sting you without reason. Honestly, I can sit within inches of a bee harvesting nectar and pollen from a flower without getting stung. Try it, it’s fascinating. I’ve also rescued bees from drowning in the city pool. They didn’t even try to sting me, and I was close enough to be stung.

    Yellow Jackets are the worst. They will sting you for no apparent reason. Honestly, one year my family was driven away from our cabin by attacking Yellow Jackets. All of us got stung at least once. An entomologist later told me that once they saw our food, it was theirs, hence the relentless stings.

    Only if you believe in evolution. Some plants were created to be pollinated by wind, or even self-pollinating, but others were created to be pollinated by insects.

    Even by the evolution analysis, the plants that existed before pollinating animals were self-pollinators, wind-pollinators, or didn’t use pollen in reproduction. But as plants evolved pollens that couldn’t be spread by wind, animals that could do the job also evolved.

    I’m actually what Calvin described. Before I got the DVR I would mute the TV and say “Get off the air, advertiser whatever it is you’re trying to sell me, I don’t want any…” Now that I have a DVR, I usually pre-record my shows so I can skip the commercials, which I consider to be a nuisance. The only thing this doesn’t work on is sports events. Regulation routinely exceeds allotted time and if it goes into OT it could exceed allotted time by more than 1 hour. But if I pause it by about 1 hour at the beginning, I usually catch up to live TV by the end of regulation, skipping the commercials. So “IN YOUR FACE!” advertisers.
