Ja, I thoughta that too.  Some students will show up at college with a perfectly functional and logical world view.  I work with students who seem to have their heads screwed on right who haven’t even started the application process.


My own view of life back then was functional enough for everyday living, just outdated by about a century for the purpose of science.  I see a lot of local teens who are way better adapted to the modern world than I remember being at their age.
