Some funny….and some just downright sad.
Ten years ago my neighbors were ethnic Tibetan immigrants from India, Christians who came here for religious freedom. One day I was sitting on the porch with their middle school age daughter who was curious about what school would be like here. She read and spoke 3 Indian languages and her English was heavily accented; but, pretty good. She told me the only computer languages she knew so far were Fortran, Basic and HTML that she’d started learning in 3rd grade and was pretty good at algebra but hadn’t memorized many geometry theorems yet. She was worried that she’d be far behind American 13-year olds.
Clever children….sit…roll over ….now beg…

Daddy wants a hores….ah ,innocent and dyslexic 🙂

LOL – I bet they have been Ritalin’d and Prozac’d into government-compliant zombies by now.

inter-web cloud and perpetuity .
