This should hit every email inbox to show how stupid we have become!

And thank you lawyers!

We met as teens (science fair competitors) and have remained friends ever since. Every time we get together with our spouses the conversation inevitably turns to science experiments we did at home that resulted in something being blown up. We both feel sorry for way our education system has been allowed to become under this nanny state we are developing both sides of this border.

1957 Your sister is in the next classroom and her teacher is screaming and slapping a yardstick against something. You don't know if your sister is hurt. You can hear crying. You're scared but say nothing because you are not old enough to deal with it. Hearing a teacher scream and other loud scary noises is not unusual. You miss many days from school. You hate going to school because you feel alone and unsafe.

2011 Your sister is in the next classroom and you hear the classroom erupt in laughter every now and again. You know your sister is safe and happy because otherwise she'd tell you or someone else that something is wrong. You enjoy school. You grow up and become something that interest you.

We've come a long way. I would never wish yesterday's school system on anyone.
