Folks & Blue:
I have generated this thread in order to not get "Site Issues" "wrapped up in Off Topic Discussions".

Not really as I enjoy "aggrevating" younger folks who have a "sparkle in their eye"! This is one for Rippley's "Believe it or Not".
I have a client you had a son who was a senior at Angelo State University (our local seat of "higher learning" which is recognized in Texas but "nowhere near" nationally).
At the son's birthday party I asked him what he was majoring in and he responded "preMed".
I asked him to please draw me a sketch of a benzene ring.
He tried and "got close" (first "preMed kid" to ever even come close or even know what it was [Alexis can verify this assertion]).
When we were together "later on" in the year he started talking about Medical Schools and how he was going to apply to what I new was "a bland school".
I asked him why he was going "to waste" four years of his life and still probably not pass the exams!!
I told him to "get his b.tt in gear" and get accepted to UT Health Sciences Center in San Antonio (nationally respected as Alexis can verify).
During his tenure at UTHSCSA he would "whine" about the course work being hard.
I would respond "Partner you don't know what hard is yet"!! & get back to studying instead of whining!
Five years later he has graduated in the top 10% of his class, passed the exams and is interning at Parkland hospital in Dallas (hospital where JFK was taken when he was assasinated)!
Told you it was a "Ripley's" story.
Fc as well as other "young folks" who are members of this forum seem to have "this same sparkle" in their eyes.
BTW: Almost brought tears to my eyes when he showed up at the office with his Medical School diploma.
