For help on how to follow a comic title,
Find and read a copy of ‘The Boy Who Played With Fusion’. He was blessed with a teacher who let him go at his own pace and encouraged him. His brother was just as smart but cursed with a teacher whose response to a request to challenge him was to just give him more work at the same level as the rest of the class! The ‘No Child Left Behind’ concept has often tied an anchor to the young geniuses that we badly need to succeed for our society to progress.

The Grading System I remember: Hardest to softest … 9H, 8H … 2H, H, F, HB, B, 2B, 3B … 9B. Most of the common pencils I have used are HB grade.
Fifty years ago, as a student, I perfected the technique of sleeping with my eyes open during lectures.
Also true. I have never been a cop but I was a security guard at a hospital, for 3 years. We dealt with psych patients, drunks, and people taking drugs that messed them up as well as those not taking drugs they really needed to NOT to be messed up. Sometimes people in a hospital are just plain stressed out. Sometimes we needed to be 2 places at once, NOW. We often wrote reports after our shift finished on our own time. Over the 3 years I had about 17 partners, most of whom I trained for that site. We also did routine patrols and had to catalogue found items in detail. I hated getting a found purse turned in. Entering them into the computer could take half an hour. You got to appreciate boring shifts. No one threw a chair at you; kicked you in the shins or the crotch. No pileups. On really boring nights you had no morgue related duties.
People are not generally aware that most chewing gum has not been made with real chicle for a very long time. Although natural chicle is still used, most of today’s chewing gums are made from a synthetic vinyl gum base. Not much wonder it is so hard to clean those black circles off sidewalks.
I agree with you but it’s also true that arresting is alright until it devolves into extra-judicial execution.
I remember hearing about coyotes in both Toronto and Mississauga which are adjoining large cities in Ontario, Canada. One was staring at a small dog through a set of patio doors. For the coyote, a small dog is just groceries. In Nova Scotia some farmers supposedly put a guard donkey out with their sheep. Donkeys have sharp feet + an attitude.
It’s been a while. ♥☺
A guy hosted group therapy for OCD people. He didn’t have OCD but he hoped they’d clean up his apartment for him.
