An analysis of three main courses and why students find them so boring.
As a child, I aspired to be one of two things: an astronaut or a mad scientist. As time passes, I'm leaning more toward mad scientist.
I attended school in a small Kansas town, though I spent most of my summers traveling around the country with my family. I've also been sailing in Florida and canoeing in Canada.
Most of my high school years were occupied with debate, science courses, and Scouts. I'm an Eagle Scout and former Kansas State Extemp Champion (2A Division).
I have two nephews and a niece. I'm trying to train them in the ways of the mad scientist, despite their parents best efforts to keep them on the straight and narrow.
My political and religious affiliations are entirely too complicated to be easily defined; suffice it to say I am neither Democrat nor Republican, and, while I find it arrogant to assume a 'higher power' doesn't exist, most organized religions would probably kick me out due to my constant habit of questioning everything.
Someday I hope to own a Laboratory, capital L, where I can tinker and play to my heart's content. My interests and talents are varied, but my favorite is by far a good book.
