You Must Obey

| February 16, 2012 | 1 Comment

It’s understood (not legal, just understood) that driving about eight mph over the speed limit on an interstate is okay.

Let’s start with math. In particular, what does “less than” mean? The symbol used in mathematical formulas is: <, as in 3<7 (three is less than seven). Don’t confuse it with it’s sister sign, “greater than”, which points the other direction, like this: >, (7>3 — seven is greater than three). Note: Did you notice […]

Stop Not Stopping

| January 24, 2012 | 0 Comments

The obvious (you’d think, but apparently I need to say it anyway): When you approach an intersection where the red light on a traffic signal is lit (for the color blind, it’s usually the top light) or where there is a blinking red light or if there is a red octagonal sign with the letters S-T-O-P […]

Public Respect

| January 2, 2012 | 1 Comment

We’ve all heard the axiom, “Children should be Seen and Not Heard.” This is actually a fairly old idea, but it still has some merit today, but only some.

| January 1, 2012 | 0 Comments
