conception and pregnancy are not the same thing

Schools have their hands tied to do with sex ed. In various parts of Canada, the schools took that on because it was not being taught at home (much the way schools began to show children how to take the bus or cross the streets at traffic lights). It just wasn't being done elsewhere so it defaulted to the school systems. However, you make a good point Blackcatter. I was in university at the age of 33 when I found out that conception and pregnancy are not the same thing. I turned to a teenage student beside me and said, "Did you know that?" He said no. So did the girl on my left.

Some schools have to be really careful about sex ed because the parents--who don't teach it to the kids--want only certain things taught to the kids. Easiest place I ever taught that aspect of Health 9 was in farm country. Most of my students knew about calving and breeding stock, so the fact people procreated in similar ways was no big deal. However, for city kids it's a whole other thing. If their view of sexuality comes from X-rated movies (and it seems there are lots of them now), then their view of sexuality is changed substantially.

Also, many teachers are embarrassed to teach it. (I often drop in for those classes and jump through the hoops with the kids. I find the kids take it better than many teachers.) And of course that only addresses the reproductive aspect, and not the emotional or the choices kids have to make these days. (There are some serious STDs out there, and some of them are deadly.) That said, y'all ain't alone in Florida.

Well, truth be told, not everyone may know about reproduction. Our school system in Florida barely touches on the subject. I have a masters degree and never had to take a course anywhere in my education on human sexuality. Maybe something was discussed in biology in 9th grade, but I doubt it.

The twin I know who used to get asked that question used to look at the idiot with a great big smile, and say very sloooowly, like she was talking to a two year old: "No, because I'm a girl, and he's a boy!" The unspoken "DUH!" came through very clearly. And she was 13 at the time, usually talking to an adult.

And why can't you drive souped-up golf carts on the highway?


You can - or at least on regular roads. There are comunities all over the U.S. that are "planned" in that they have shopping places tied to the residential areas as well as schools and the like. There are fancy golf carts that are owned by residents to drive on the streets so they don't use their cars for every little thing.

You can't drive souped-up golf carts on the highway because the hamsters are afraid of traffic.

And God has already made a corndog so huge that even He couldn't eat it. The uneaten portion is plainly visible in the night sky of the Northern Hemisphere during the months of February and March.

"Subtract b:          a - b = ab - b"

"Evaluated" is         0 = 0

The subsequent division is a "divide by zero."

Any fool knows that zero divided by zero can have any answer you want, depending on whether the bigger zero is on the top or on the bottom.



(n-1)*a = n*a a = 0

for n = 1

(n 1) = 1 1 = 0

(1 1) * a = a a = 0

For the same reason that 0! = 1 and not 0.

Clear?
