    “Hammy and Verne’s look” – you mean NOT BLINKING?

    Back when I was in school, the teachers had all been trained to see behind themselves somehow, so they could face the board for the few seconds to write something without a problem. Or maybe we were just terrified into submission. ;-)

    When I first got “clipless” pedals, I was warned repeatedly about remembering that taking my foot off the pedal required a specific action. I was very careful for the first five or six rides, any time I came to a stop. Then came a ride with a stop at a coffee shop with a large parking area, where I coasted gradually to a stop and tried to put my foot down . . . and it wouldn’t come off the pedal (because I wasn’t doing it right). So I came to a complete stop completely upright, and then ever so gradually fell over.

    >>>>> … we started with “THE HOBBIT”

    When I was in high school, the paperbacks had just come out, and the English teachers roundly derided all of Tolkein’s work as “derivative fantasy nonsense”. Sort of missing the entire point.

    When real-life politics is absurd enough for Hammy to be involved, it DOES belong on the comics page. How can THESE possibly be the main choices we’re presented with?

    >>> … but I fail to see why that really matters.

    Nothing really matters, Anyone can see, Nothing really matters . . . .

    Our society spends tons of money trying to bring up the low end of the curve, apparently figuring that the bright kids will find things to do on their own, not doing the cost/benefit that a single good teacher would keep a whole class full of bright kids busy and out of trouble and – important part – PRODUCTIVE.

    Calc 3. I went to a “magnet” high school in NYC, so the first year of engineering school was just more of the same. Then I hit the third semester of calculus and it fell on me like a brick wall. But it was still not as bad as the people who had been valedictorian or salutatorian of their county high school back home, showed up at RPI figuring they were hot stuff, and were lost within a week.

    >>Selfies are a lot better than handing the camera to a stranger and asking them to take a picture of you.

    Depends. If you make sure to ask someone who’s got a decent camera around their neck, they probably have a clue. OTOH Don’t ask the people taking their holiday snaps with a cellphone. Plus sometimes it’s a nice way to start up a conversation.

    It is fascinating how little kids don’t care about gender, then both sides become more and more convinced that the other is completely horrible . . . until suddenly they become the most interesting thing on earth.

    Dry not. Do. Or do not. There is no dry.
