BMI is absolutely flawed.  As a kid in the 90's I don't recall them doing a BMI test (doesn't mean they didn't) but I definitely recall having to do pull ups,  when you couldn't do those over or underhanded they had you hold your head above the bar as long as you could, run a mile, sit ups and a few other exercises.  As a kid who was about as round as I was tall at one point you can guess where I finished in those tests.  That said I find the talk about the aerobic category test and decreasing scores sad.  They want to change the tests because of decreasing scores which just seems appropriate for this day and age.  Fewer people passing so instead of addressing the issue why let's make it easier to pass.  Kind of seems like some of what's gone on in high schools to up graduation rates while too many high school graduates are under prepared.  Ultimately this isn't doing these kids any favors because once they reach adulthood no one is going to just give them a pass or make life, their job or whatever easier.

I went to public school.  Reason I got up really early for the early bird special even though it doesn't start until later this afternoon.

I too was the victim of public school. Santa Margarita Catholic High School was where the super rich kids went, and it had a reputation for having the highest drug use of any high school in South OC.

I can't believe they gave the dude a standing ovation. Yeah, I'm sure it only happened one time.

I can tell you my dad wasn't one of them. He was pissed. He not only stopped going San Francisco Solano Church, but he stopped going to any Catholic church for years. Only returned to one where he lived in Idaho a few years before he passed.

So, so disgusting. The tolerance for the abuse and the systemic nature of the enabling and cover ups is the absolute definition of filth.

Mater Dei parties were the best parties when I was in high school

Well yeah, us poor public school kids  only had access to Mexican weed, and our dad's yellow can Coors. The rich kids had access to their parent's cocaine.

That reminds me, yacht rock season is just a few months away.
