In other words, to form an opinion based one what has been written or said,, not stating facts
Is that first paragraph a shot at me for not understanding the English language?

Missed 51 days in my senior year of HS because I was starting up and running my own business. Still graduated with honors and a 3.9 GPA. Only class they hassled me about missing the time in was gym. Seems you have to make up what you miss in gym, just like any other class. They wouldn't let me graduate until I ran 5 miles on the track. They were kind enough to let me break that up into three sessions. Gym teacher hated me, and didn't want to allow me to do it, but since I was in the top 10%, it got a little attention in the local media, and I believe they gave him no choice. Thought I knew everything back then. Now, I am old enough to know better.

You guys went to SCHOOL ?

I hated gym...just purely hated it....Remember those knotted ropes you had to climb ?
About my third trip to the top, I wrapped it around my wrist and screamed I was "caught", and couldn't get loose....The Fire company came and "untangled" me...I didn't have to climb that stupid rope any more....

I did like mechanical drawing though...A picture I drew in eleventh grade is still on display in the High School hall.

What were we talking about ?
