    Yes use fruit.

    Max was a fruit. So were his friends Barney, Larry, and Anthony.

    If they went to New York and if Barney married Max and if Larry married Anthony, how many couples would that make?

    Thank you.

    In return, I will refrain, as a "dividee" rather than a "divider," from commenting on why "dividing the girls up by stamina instead of evenly" isn't...even.

    Fun little article. I just love the quote, [/FONT][/COLOR]"This outrages me because it just lets me know that there's still racists," from the article, like the kind of person that does stupid **** like this is some sheet-wearing KKK member wanting to terrorize little black children-- instead of another well-meaning white liberal who just wants to uphold his civic responsibility to never let anyone forget that we're all victims. We should teach math in math classes, and leave the history lessons for the history classes.
    Stuff like this shows that you can have a college degree and still be a ****en moron. Didn't anyone at that school think maybe they should keep history and other unrelated **** out of math homework?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    History and math can certainly be tied together. After all, mathematics as a field of study had over 5,000 years of recorded history. However the way they went about this was ridiculous. I guess I can't really be angry though. This is part of the same education system that debates including creationism in our science classes.

    Maybe they will try to add some sort of urban culture that glorifies scumbags to appeal to young kids living in ghettos.For example. Bob has 5 hoes working for him. Each of these hoes works for 12 hours a day.Yesterday in order to make sure his hoes are making his money and to keep them in line Bob had to bitch slap the first hoe every 2 hours, the 2nd hoe ever 3 hours, the 3rd hoe ever six hours and the last two hoes every 4 hours.How times yesterday did Bob have to bitch slap his hoes in order to keep his hoes in line and to make sure they were making his money?

    935 lies were told to get us into Iraq. If the lies were told over a period of 18 months, how many lies per day were told?

    I think this kind of crap spewed on 8-yr-olds requires something a bit harsher than write-up. If my kid had been exposed to this, I'd be calling for that teacher's head on a platter.

    Seriously? If my kid complained about this, I'd just roll my eyes and tell him to finish his math homework. This is embarrassing, but it isn't anything we need to do anything about.

    Oh, I'd tell him to finish his homework, but I'd be in the principal's office the next day, asking why in hell they were teaching math by counting the number of beatings that were given to black slaves. Seriously, you don't think there is something kind of sick about this... technique?
