    French is a stupid language. Do you know there isn't a word for seventy, eighty or ninety? It's basically "sixty plus ten", "forty times two," and "forty times two plus ten."

    "Hey Pierre, so we've made up ten through sixty, what comes next?"
    "**** it, it's drinking time, just add other numbers up to be seventy through ninety."

    Re: Homeschooling

    How many students fail out, drop out, or barely manage to graduate from homeschools? How many of them go on to being career criminals, rapists, murders and life long prisoners? How many homeschoolers shoot up a mall, public square or....a school?

    Different demographic, different negative result. Jews don't do a whole lot of rape/murder, but we sure are good at stealing your 401k's. Likewise homeschoolers may or may not become career criminals (I'm taking your word for it, I haven't seen any studies), but they really know how to tard up every forum thread about equal rights and science.

    I absolutely hated French. I'm completely baffled at their ability to survive.

    Well, then clearly they are a detriment to society and most be stopped at all costs!

    They can alll be found outside of public schools. And they are. And they talk too.

    You see, I am not believing either one of you. I think neither one of you know any homeschooled kids because of my up close and personal contact with hundreds of them, and my own experience has been that homeschooled kids generally have superior science knowledge and skills as well as excelling in the 3 R's, and all are very well adjusted socially.
