But they're short. I don't care if they're made out of magical flying tiger hair, a cold wind on a willy sounds horrid.

 

That part stays covered! And socks are worn with them.

How many points for using this thread as distraction at urgent care while waiting to see if dd broke her pinky? And do I get bonus points for it being a military facility 30 min from home?

Shoot - I wanted to be the first to page 3 but got distracted. . .

 

Can I get some points??

 

How about for this: today, I teared up at the end of Library Lion when the lion returns and the librarian runs. :crying:

 

No seriously. It's true.

I want points! I grew up in Texas and worked deep fried beer into the conversation during my class at law school today. That's got to count for something!

But you left Texas. This, my sister, is a shameful thing.

Has anyone speculated yet what the OP said? What was the problem? Would you eat this, Doctor Hive, or kids refusing to do math?

I will award you 76 points for growing up in Texas.  Some were deducted from your possible total due to leaving because who does that???

You definitely get points. 1 per minute of wait time at said facility.

Well, this is on the general education board so I am guessing that she wanted a math curriculum that is spiral, mastery, independent, and prepares kids for the AP exam.

If the clinic was in Texas, she would have received two points per minute, per the Official Rules. 

 

Make your decisions carefully, people.  They matter.

<----------------------   check THIS out!  

 

Competitive DH was all excited about my score, until he found out the context of the game (i.e., this thread).  

 

So after getting over the fact that his wife is NOT going to be the next great thing in Classical Home Education, he suggested that at the very least we should find a way to track our running totals.  And so finally…. a purpose for the Member Title!

 

<----- Ta Da!   

 

Points for unsurpassed creative innovation?  With bonus points, since I haven't even finished my first cup of coffee this morning?

Oh yeah, baby!  You get more points.  Give yourself an extra 52 for clever repartee.

I could get a picture of the kilt on the fire truck.  But alas, no fireman will be in attendance.  So, it's not as inspiring.

 

Can I get points for having a kilt and a fire man, even if the two won't be joined????

10 points for having a kilt and a fireman. For producing pics of a fireman in a kilt, infinity points.

I believe she was trying to start a poll. I don't recall about what exactly. But this thread has outlived the poll. :)

I'm just disappointed that I haven't earned any points yet. I've awarded points but not earned any. What is up with that?

 

You can stop by my house to earn some. I need some mopping done.

If you say "Texas is the best!" in your siggie for at least one week, you can earn 500 points.

Hey, wait a cotton pickin' minute! I turn my back on this thread to, you know, educate my child (booooo-ring) AND NOW YOU HAVE POINTS?????  Where are MY points? Don't I get some points?

 

Well, actually, now that I think about it, I participated.  Where's my trophy? I'm an American, for Pete's sake. :toetap05:

Man.... I took the Texas quiz and got a 74%.  I guess GA isn't enough like Texas.  :confused1:

You were so close that I award you points in spite of your 1% lack.

But is it a scripted rambling zig zag?

 

It's half scripted -- any more than that and it wouldn't be a RAMBLING zig-zag.  But the directions are like Google directions -- sometimes there's a better route than what they show you.  Basically, throw in your own unique zigs and a few impromptu zags, and you will find your way.

56%  :scared:

 

I don't understand! I grew spending my summers in the sticks! I learned to make moonshine when I was 4! I should have been able to pass an online test. I guess that's what I get for being honest.

 

Eta: I'm not prejudice, I just assumed an online quiz about Texas would be.

Very impressive! I like Canadians. They talk funny. :D

You must've been talking to those eastern Canadians. I agree they DO talk funny! Us westerners, though, our speech is perfectly normal. ;)

I got 83%. Guess Alabama and Texas must have some things in common. Add that to my 2 hours at the urgent care last night and I have lots of points!

Ahem.  Some of us south of the border might disagree, right?

Well, I guess I'm happy for you. Me, on the other hand, I open a thread titled "Ignore Me" and find out that my life is pointless. :scared:
