    I have no problem calculating 35% of 90 in my head a lot faster than I could with the new method.

    No method. I just do it. I was never very good at algebra or any other higher math but I have always been able to figure out simple math calculations very quickly. Maybe I should be playing blackjack

    lol... I was at a table this past weekend. 2-deck shoe, but they pull the cards out of play right about the time counting the face cards gets to be useful. I prefer the craps table any day.

    The only cool person to play it.

    Common core is bullshit. Oklahoma threw that crap out with the trash.

    Back on track now.

    The feds need to stay out of a lot of things and education is one of those things.
