When I was in college, if we attended classes, did the homework, and read the book, we knew the answers.

Homework? Seriously, in college? We just had to write papers, and give presentations. No busy work.

Funny, but the same holds true today. Only it seems the students have forgotten that. Y'know... effort = grade.

What you mean is if you enjoy the class/subject/prof it's not work.

Nah, homework was mostly useless busy work, and an almost constant - every day or week or whatever. Those papers are usually one or two only for the class and well documented at the beginning of the class.

Maybe it's just the crappy school system I went to in primary school was heavy on meaningless homework, that by the time I actually got around to having homework that meant something I didn't mind as much.

I was sort of like this (although I didn't have actual numbers) until they hit high school. After that, freeze your ass off if you want to. Didn't figure it was going to hurt them.

I gotta say, that rule doesn't apply to me. I've been wearing shorts and hawaiian shirts for a while this "spring". Even once when it was snowing. Have I mentioned I'm looney?

BTW- rediscovering 10,000 maniacs (old stuff). Nice relaxing tunes...

High school it was high tops, jeans and jean jacket all year

I might be confused, but aren't the barenaked ladies men who could find the only thing they all had in common was that they liked barenaked ladies?
