I think Mrs. Ha was amused by georgeha (4.00 / 0) #2 Wed Apr 09, 2014 at 12:32:26 PM EST
and a little irked that they assumed the parents were so sheltered and uptight they'd believe it.

We've warned the boy that he won't get away with things because "we'll know", but I suspect he'll think we're too naive about these things to notice.  He'll probably never find out that his mother was a massive pothead in college and that his dad was really into psychedelics.

She's very pro-legalization by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #11 Thu Apr 10, 2014 at 11:01:18 AM EST
but then again, many of the kids in her major (Theatre Tech), skip school or get suspended on April 20th, and she has cousins where pot smoking is the least of their troubles.

I frequently meet late teens/early twenties in AA by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #7 Thu Apr 10, 2014 at 07:47:45 AM EST
who are surprised that their parents knew exactly what was up. Even after they meet the nearly 50 year old guy with a TS clearance, preppy clothes, and a history of abusing every drug he encountered, they are amazed that their parents, too, were teenagers once.

This seems to go away when they hit thirty, or have kids, or both.

thinking they're the first ones to experience sex and drugs and feelings.

so .. by sasquatchan (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Apr 09, 2014 at 03:01:56 PM EST
WTF is ten dollar tuesday, since teh internets isn't helping me figure it out.

And "oh, you're just like me" coming from mom isn't some type of motivation for 17yr old ?

Normal admission to the HD Museum is $18 by georgeha (4.00 / 0) #4 Wed Apr 09, 2014 at 03:13:53 PM EST
for adults who aren't veterans. But, October through April, it's $10 on Tuesday.

We may have sheltered our daughters too well from all the trials and tribulations Mrs. Ha has suffered from in not having a degree. They may not equate the financial sacrifices of being a nearly single income household with her educational background.

Then again, teenage logic.

Seventeen_year_old is smarter than me because while I got better grades in high school than she does, it was because I studied a little bit.

I got higher SAT scores than she did, even though she took a prep class. That was because I studied a bit in school, she's still smarter.

the average young person is smarter than you by bobdole (4.00 / 1) #8 Thu Apr 10, 2014 at 07:53:46 AM EST
IQ has steadily increased as long as we have measured it with controlled instruments.

According to the Flynn Effect... 3-4 generations the IQ would have increased by so much that the first generation would be borderline "retarded" according to modern standards. Something to think about...

baby and bathwater by bobdole (4.00 / 1) #10 Thu Apr 10, 2014 at 10:53:38 AM EST
while IQ-testing has been used for all sorts of purposes, the Flynn effect remains fairly prominent also when testing within relatively unchanged populations...

The quote is still funny... my father went through the same experience, he became wiser as I grew older. Funny.
