That was the biggest part of the discussion on this video elsewhere. You know if someone doesn't wash their hands after using a public restroom, they probably don't EVER wash their hands.

I put several of my kids' pictures through it. For one, it guessed 16 to 20 (she's 18). The other, it guessed 34 to 63 (she's 16). You'd think the braces would be a giveaway.

That's the great thing about watching at home. You feel smart if you know any of the answers, without the pressure of competition or having to keep up with scores.

Makes sense to me. You train your reflexes to respond instantly while steering a bike, because if you had to take the time to think about it, you'd crash. Retraining a different method is a great experiment, as long as someone else is doing it.

The closest real-life analogy I can think of in my own experience is roller skating. I was pretty good at it when I was young. Then I didn't skate for twenty years, just walked. When I took it up again to skate with my kids, it took a good twenty minutes to realign my reflexes (which was quite comical), then suddenly I was as good as I ever was.

My advice: look, but don't touch, as soon as you get into the room. More than once, I've seen the fridge missing a couple of items when I arrived, and then got charged for them. Once, I was charged within an hour of arrival! Now I always report a less-than-fully stocked mini-bar immediately, even though I don't use anything from it.

That kind of thing is hard to track, because often the one who does the hiring is not the same person who supervises the new hires. Also, looks are pretty subjective. But what do I know? I work with a bunch of people I wouldn't recognize if I ran into them on the street.

Speaking of pandas, my kids by now have seen pandas in Atlanta, Washington DC, Memphis, and Toronto. They'll have to get to San Diego on their own to complete the map -that's a long way to drive.

That's a good point. The problem is not that sugar is all that bad in itself -the problem is how much we consume because we are just used to it. When you eat something all day, every day, it ceases to be a treat.

So the kids who get those slots are the ones who need preschool the least, huh? Here, preschool is open to all, but the school tries to reach out to those who need it most. You can get your kid in at age 3 if the child has a special need.

I thought I might get my youngest in at 3 because English was her second language. When I told them that, the teachers turned around and asked my kid something, and got an entire monologue that convinced them she was fluent enough. So she waited another year.

I don't know what could be misunderstood about a threat to go to the police over a child playing in his own backyard. But yeah, I would go talk to the guy, and find out what his real problem is.
