Student Arrested for Making Videogame Map of School

Presidential 'nother solution (998 comments)

The traditional family with one wage-earner and one stay-at-home person is not that common any more. Now it's 2 wage earners, or 1 wage earner and an empty seat. Fix that, and maybe you can increase home-schooling.


We could always try the multi-party family units, a la Robert Heinlein. Then you'd have multiple husbands and wives to share the duties of home schooling. I dare say the kids might even come out better if they had the tutelage of several points of view and experience.

I already have one wife. I haven't suggested adding more on to the tree as of yet; we haven't got kids to educate at home. I suppose that there's a good argument here to add-a-wife: procreation!

Feh. I need my caffiene.

Presidential Presidential writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Presidential (805793) writes "Unusual and rare meteorite found in Kansas:
Even before they had the meteorite out of the ground, the scientific experts at the site were able to debunk prevailing wisdom that the spectacular meteorite fall of Brenham, Kansas, occurred 20,000 years ago. Its location in the Pleistocene epoch soil layer puts that date closer to 10,000 years ago. "We know it is recent," said Carolyn Sumners, director of Astronomy at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, as she surveyed progress on the dig. "Native Americans could have seen it."
