Yup. I had biology and animal science. I don't remember doing much with the periodic table and whatnot except for having to make one on posterboard in middle school. So I have virtually zero chemistry skills. That's what you get for going to Cow Pie High. =P

Huh... very interesting to hear about other education systems. To graduate High School here, you have to have (I believe) two 30-level science courses (chosen from chemistry, physics, and biology). I chose Chem and Bio... while I must obey the rules of physics, I could never wrap my head around all the formulas, not for lack of trying. I couldn't even begin to do an Equilibrium equation now, but I used to have a (very loose) grasp of very very basic chemistry.

... plus I heard this joke waaaay back in a middle school science class.. some kid was trying to pull a fast one on everyone in the class - it really got some people, too!

Looking back, I probably should have gone into chemistry but at 16, why on earth would I choose a chem class over going to a farm and riding horses, bathing cows, playing with pigs, and shearing sheep? Haha. I went to the only HS I know to have this as an option, it was actually pulled out as an option the year after I graduated.

I probably couldn't ever follow physics either. I'd have better luck with chemistry. Until the time I need to take it, I'll just hang out with my head in the sand. But at least I get the joke now! =P

Same here only I had biology and "earth science" (I can't remember learning a single thing in either class), only I went to a gigantic school right outside Los Angeles.

Now my kids.... attendees of a "Cow Pie High" (their graduating class will be about 60 kids and is the only school that offers FFA) but their school has it together. I never had to take geography, my older child is laughing her head off at me as *I* am reading her textbook in order to have some clue on helping her with homework. My lil 4th grader already has the periodic table memorized and is off in the chem lab having a great time.

Google is my best friend right now Some of this stuff I only vaguely remember, I KNOW I wasn't doing complex algebraic equations in 4th grade and since her father wasn't home last night, there I was looking it all up because I knew we hadn't gotten it right.

My school only requires one science to the 20 level to graduate. I, on the other hand, am taking Biology, chem and physocs all to the 30 level plus 25ib for bio and chem.

Oh wow... I kept staring at that web page trying to figure out why the heck this was in the jokes and funnies.
I even took chem as high as I could in high school, I was planning on going into a medical field, apparently good thing I didn't!

Gosh, I'm so gullible. You guys actually had me going. I was like "great one more thing I have to watch out for".
I took Chem, Bio, Physics, and college Bio obviously it was time well spent since I retained so much. Should have taken the Ag and Farm classes:(

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
