New school year has a funny sound to it, from my point of view. My daughter's school started 4 weeks ago, and marching band started 2 weeks before that, so from her perspective, summer's already been over for a month and a half.

No, come on..... it was a dumb high schooler in a moving vehicle aiming at a moving vehicle (me) traveling at different speeds.

They don't really teach complicated math in HS - and lordy, having him do it with no benefit of a hand-held computer. He was bound to fail.

Missed me and the bike by 2-3 feet of elevation and he was leading too much. Then there's the adrenaline factor....... Don't let him on Survivor - he's bound to fail the first challenge.
