    GREAT links today. The Onion? I am hooked now. I love the ticker and the headlines at the bottom. They didn’t miss any details.

    Loving Totlol, and I think my kids will love it too. BUT – any idea why I can’t get any sound? (My speakers are definitely working, as youtube gives me sound.) Weird, huh?

    Thanks for the link to TotLol – we’ve been loving it! Even ran into some signing videos, which is perfect since I’m still attempting to teach baby some signs.

    The link about the British student was interesting. Kind of made me smile when I remembered one of my friends in high school actually passed a big calculus test when instead of doing the math, she wrote a four page essay on why she did not want to and should not be expected to write the test. The teacher respected that and she still got about 60%!! Wish I’d thought about that. Calculus was not my strong point, lol.

    I read the story about the British student earlier this week and it reminded me of a Chemistry test I “took” once. I had employed the grand method of scoring a brilliant lab partner who would do most of the work. Then, before we handed in our labs, I would take them home and recopy them using markers and colored pens and drawing pictures. Our teacher would bump the grade up sometimes a whole grade if you did a spectacular job. But, of course, I didn’t learn anything.
    Test day comes, I turn my paper over and illustrate the classic Pioneer Girl/camp song “Little Bunny in the Woods” comic book style.
    I got a solid D.
