I can't even remember what the original post was about.....

8th grade history teacher allowed extra credit on tests for any name associated with the test. I had enough extra credit to pass two more tests with a blank answer sheet. Easiest class I ever took.

And I cannot remember the teacher's name.

Got it! Mr Thayer!!!

Take your peurile, juvenile, political crap off these threads. Or I will have you removed.


I was just sayin', I haven't lived in this century (or the last one), I was sent from the future to give you new puerile (in the future we have decent public education so we know how to spell) political crap. Did you know puerile's etymology is related to the word poultry? Chickenboy needs to represent here, I think. Oh, and like the Orkans, we age in reverse, and juveniles are among the wisest () of us.

It's from Latin "puer"="boy". One of the first words learned in Latin 101. Thanks Mrs. Browder.

Thanks is pretty interesting.

He didn't care what I wrote. It was one point for every word that was from WWII. I put a list of ships, planes, generals and battles. I think I scored 248%. I know it was somewhere around there anyway. I used to spend lunch in his room and he put on "War at Sea" movies.

Well that was disappointing - I got one wrong - Superb was completed in November 45. I also managed to miss some sitters... Aurora, Berwick, Cairo, Colossus, Devonshire, Kenya, all five Bellona's, Phoebe!!

More haste, less speed...
