When multiplying 6 x 7, you need a calculator. But you cant think of any good reasons for doing this.
A rolling stone gathers no moss? Okay, but why would it want to?

Hah! That was a funny list - thanks for sharing.
You can add these two:
1. When was the war of 1812 and who were the two warring parties.
2. What is the name of the national anthem and during what war was it written?

How Prozac turns fish into killers
Lots of kids are being fed this stuff (like the recent school shooters?).
It's not the guns, folks.
LOL - how about if your High School’s Valedictorian cannot pass the basic skills test to get her diploma?
This actually happened a year or two ago - I believe she failed it at least twice (test was based on what an average 10th grader should know).
Prozac is pretty harmless, in my experience. I haven’t anybody— not even my teenager.
Your high school shop class taught you safe cracking.
correction: I haven’t killed anybody. (the word “killed” got deleted accidentally. No actual verbs were harmed in the writing of this post.)
Who is buried in Grant’s tomb?
WHERE is Grant’s tomb?
” Ask no questions about the care and sue of condoms, from the four grade up they wii get a hundred on thsoe.”
so.....what public school did you attend?
Your high school shop class taught you safe cracking.
I actually LOL’ed
Public schools = crap.
FWIW my shop teacher in 9th grade ran off with a 14 year old (female, he was not really with it) student. This was 40 years ago.
I gotta admit she was pretty hot.
There are pictures on the walls all over the school and every boy is on ADD medication.
Q: You have five rocks of crack. Your buddy takes two of them. What do you have then?
A: A dead buddy and all my rocks back.

2. To Anacreon in Heaven, written in about 1771
Don’t laugh. Back in my day when we did learn something in school, a nearby school’s “highest ranking girl” was from the special ed (as it was known) class. There was a big stink until people realized it was a tiny little school and she was the only girl in the class.
At my school, the coach started an affair with a 6th grader and eventually married her after she graduated. The priest also had an affair with a girl, got her pg and quit the Church to marry her. A hot young middle school teacher had after school sessions with the HS football team. The list goes on and on. The school scandals of today are nothing new.
The national language of Austria is Austrian.
If you ask my Austrian relatives what language they speak, that’s what they’ll tell you. (Well, Austro-Bavarian.)
FWIW there was a very pretty (a rare commodity) nun who taught chemistry at my high school. After completion of my freshman year, she didn’t return the next year. Word was she ran off with a chemistry salesman who supplied the school with products. No “they must have had the right chemistry” jokes please.

Evil Roy Slade: I have threes with a gun.
Preacher: You win!
Marine combat medics are corpsemen...
Good point, sarcastic, but valid, I should have had my secretary or one of my daughters proof it.
Okay, sorry, I thought this was an Obama gaffe.
Meh, prolly was. Obama doesn’t know my kooky uncles ;^)
I have a PhD in a life science.
I can do fairly complex math calculations in my head (it impresses people).
I figured out mathematics up to calculus by the time I was 11.
There is no way I could answer your question #1. Learning history is a matter of rote memorization, a skill I was never good at.
However, I can do a pretty good job of playing the 1812 Overture in my head, complete with cannon shots.
If a kid can’t demonstrate good math or English skills by the time they graduate HS, then they went to a crappy school. And yes, I made a conscious decision to use the plural “they” as a singular pronoun, so as to avoid the awkward “he or she” terminology.
Why not, is it that the Lord Jesus is not amongst the top three or is it that you have no heroes or heroines in your life?
