  1. I used it inappropriately. It's actually an illegitimate child. I thought it was a child late in life from a second marriage.
  2. I have a letter my best friend sent to me from Marine Boot Camp the summer after HS graduation. It was so funny at the time that I saved it. I intended to give it back to him but lost touch. I found him on the Internet living in Texas. That's the good news. The bad news is that I found his name in his son's obituary. Damn, have a love child in your forties and lose him because he was either drunk driving or with another teen who was. I put off contacting him at the time.
  3. What item do you now have that has been in your custody and control for the longest continuous period? Don't count your baby pics or kindergarten report card from their time of origination if your mom saved it for you and gave it to you later. I'm boring, Social security card has been in my wallet since I was 16.
  4. I agree with that. It's just weird as hell when you read some of the violations.
  5. Pretty easy to pay a psychologist for an evaluation citing immaturity or a doctor citing lack of physical development. Failing that, private school or lay low. Nobody sending out the cops looking for kindergartners. It's really an arbitrary rule and more at stake for summer borns, particularly boys who don't develop fine muscle control for writing as early as girls. If a parent wants to delay, it's not that hard to accomplish.
  6. The study is pretty definitive. We are talking about a single year and with summer borns the delayed kid will graduate at 18 instead of 17 like I did. A whole lot of reasons to delay. . . academic, athletic and social.
  7. A school can be disciplined if a volleyball player uses soap and water from athletic department to wash her car without paying for it but

    Maybe he will grow into it. those are the years I calculated but I'm wondering why not a word about Notre Dame and the glorious 2000 season. We were all cheering for you before we knew you. i'm also curious about your thoughts regarding Riley and Erickson.

Probably should have. It took me until about the end of the fourth grade to catch on to what school was about.

    All great stories. So glad you are here to represent. The names of the player opponents help to place you in context. 1998 - 2002? Were those the years? But, big question, how does mere teenage (or nearly so) Rat beard compare with young Cody's beard?
  11. It's always helpful to read the study itself or to read an article describing the study that is not written by a pothead advocate (https://davidheitz.com/). In that vein: "Data Synthesis: From 27 chronic pain trials, there is low-strength evidence that cannabis alleviates neuropathic pain but insufficient evidence in other pain populations. According to 11 systematic reviews and 32 primary studies, harms in general population studies include increased risk for motor vehicle accidents, psychotic symptoms, and short-term cognitive impairment. Although adverse pulmonary effects were not seen in younger populations, evidence on most other long-term physical harms, in heavy or long-term cannabis users, or in older populations is insufficient. Limitation: Few methodologically rigorous trials; the cannabis formulations studied may not reflect commercially available products; and limited applicability to older, chronically ill populations and patients who use cannabis heavily. Conclusion: Limited evidence suggests that cannabis may alleviate neuropathic pain in some patients, but insufficient evidence exists for other types of chronic pain. Among general populations, limited evidence suggests that cannabis is associated with an increased risk for adverse mental health effects." http://annals.org/aim/article/2648595/effects-cannabis-among-adults-chronic-pain-overview-general-harms-systematic Thus, it appears this study did no independent primary research and was rather an analytical synthesis of various research projects pointing out the paucity of evidence in such studies. "The systematic reviews highlight an alarming lack of high-quality data from which to draw firm conclusions about the efficacy of cannabis for these conditions, for which cannabis is both sanctioned and commonly used." http://annals.org/aim/article/2648597/cannabis-pain-posttraumatic-stress-disorder-more-consensus-than-controversy-vice In less technical jargon, the laudatory ejaculations of potheads about the efficacy of marijuana in dealing with pain are, not surprisingly, premature.
