I'm so grateful for GoPro's "cameraization" of the world. When the kid gets ready to ride on the street I'll have an endless supply of training videos for him. All I had was a fake automobile in a trailer with a few ancient car-wreck movies from the 50's.

Older daughter (15 y/o) is pulling straight A's in her Freshman year in HS after Daddy laid out the facts of life to her (Mom and Dad are not poor, but not rich either, see 50% offer above). She is pretty motivated

Sky high college tuition is a crime against the middle class as far as I am concerned. Really wondering if the cost/benefit ratio is there anymore. It certainly depends on the degree obtained, now more than ever. Go be a petro engineer young lady...
So true . Yep my oldest daughter graduates with honors from expensive private college and can only find low paying jobs with non profits.

Like a glass of Samuel Jackson, College is always a GooOOOOd Mothafjukkin' Choice, Muthafjukka'!

Particularly when planning a career based-upon a Liberal Arts Degree.

Like Sock-Puppetry.
