Look at it this way, the better the school system in your town is, the higher value your house is. I hate a lot of things my tax dollars go to, but that isn't one of them.

That's quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I don't have kids either, and I pay education taxes with NO resentment because I want - no, NEED - future generations to be educated.

We didn't have Oregon Trail at school. We had "where in the world is Carmen Sandiego"

I still remember typing class in elementary school

"quiet aunt zelda"
"willy sits eXams"
"run from vikki to get betty" lol

I loved Oregon Trail. Sometimes I would go through the game honestly trying to do well and sometimes I would go through it trying to kill off as many people in my party as possible....

I don't think I ever survived all the way through.

My favorite part was getting to hunt.
