Rants, Raves and Recipes from the Edge of Sanity
I did an oral report on ballistics when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. No shit. Got an A on it too and nobody freaked out when I emptied all the ammo out of my pockets for illustration purposes.
I got a talking too about lab safety in high school for making explosives. These days half the shit we pulled would get a kid suspended and taken away from the parents.Exile1981
Watch the neighbor behind us skin and section a deer hung from the swing set frame. Most educational. I think I was 6 or 7.High school chem teacher gave extra credit for the team who could get the biggest bang with a given mass of material. We had to figure out on paper what chemicals to ask for. Final exam was held WAY out on the ball field.I miss that wonderful country called America.
Wrote an essay in high school called "From the Pig Pen to the Plate." about my family butchering our own hogs. Got an A+ and the nun read it for the class. This was back around 1970.
I always thought that in Texas, the animal of choice for high school biology lab should be the deer instead of the frog........and, after biology class, the meat could be cycled thru the home ec class.....vaquero viejo
