    So this one is a mercy killing! “Would you like a hood?” “Yes – two, please!”

    In the short-lived Hanna-Barbera cartoon series it was spelled Magilla

    I’ve seen a lot of cursive I could not read. That is why I only use it for my signature.

    I agree, WildSow. those "s"s make me crazy. At 62 I haven’t used cursive for years. I want my writing to be plainly legible so I block print everything.

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    How do you figure Nabuquduriuzhur gets his facts from the barbershop? Here in Arizona there are two standardized tests that come into play in primary and secondary school: the Stanford 9 and Arizona’s own notorious AIMS (which, the last I heard, was not recognized by most colleges in the state). “We have standards… thousands of them.”

    Standardized testing is deplorable! It neglects students who can work at a much faster pace in their best subjects and who don’t do as well in their worst subjects – which is every child. Standardized testing is not what has made public schools a cesspool, but it has definitely fed the beast. I literally learned nothing useful except some math in 12 years of school – I learned reading and a lot of math before the mind-numbing system ever saw me.
    For a better way, check out how many private schools are doing it. They accept standardized tests, too, but don’t teach to the tests. Public schools are geared not merely to the average, but to the mediocre in each of us.

    I grew up in California, then escaped. There really aren’t more nuts in California, but they are more cohesive. Most places, if somebody says, “Let’s all wear clothes made of cactus” everybody backs away. In California, somebody else will say, “Yeah!” and they will start a movement.

    School does not make us smart. I remember in the mid-60s there was hand-wringing that America was losing the brain race; our test scores were among the lowest in the industrial world. Since then we have pioneered lasers, integrated circuits, computers, and landed the first man on the moon. It is not the capabilities of the average that matter for those, but of the exceptional.

    After 45 years in high tech, I have only once used any of my advanced math above the level of basic algebra at work. I’ve used it a couple times in hobbies, modeling high pressure air flow, but not at work. I once took a Cisco equipment test that did not need math above 4th grade level to get a perfect score and any math at all to pass. I call myself a recovering math head – I tutor when called for but that is about all.

    Math does not hold a candle to computer programming in teaching somebody to think. Math below the level of calculus ranges from rote memorization to simple tricks. The idea that it teaches people to think is not very credible.
