@Jim Thompson: and :jtsim: I don't understand the phenomenon that is Twitter.....I barely can keep up with cell phone calls and the text messages that arrive on my smart phone....and I don't get many of those....I just don't feel the need to check my phone every two minutes.....more like maybe a couple of times a day.....
I can't imagine keeping up with quick, supposedly intelligent banter in 140 characters or less all day long.....I'm tired just thinking about it.....

Most are being home-schooled because their parents realize that the education system is atrocious.....posted @ Friday, September 6, 2013 - 10:11
