  •  ...tests are crap but they make the testing (5+ / 0-)

    companies rich...hmmm sounds like the story of American Education, too, before we even get to the employment age.

    Meanwhile, I had an amusing afternoon once, watching some expensively dressed college students trying to decide which bottle of cleansing drink they should buy in order to pass a piss test in the next day or two. Eventually, the one who needed it settled on a bottle of orange stuff, 32 oz. for $36.00.  If they were gonna be that dumb, I had no problem watching them get separated from their money. It just amazed me that a college kid couldn't figure out to read the label and realize that to be clean he would have had to drink about 8 bottles of that stuff and wait longer than he had planned on. Not only that, the big thing was- if he had read the ingredients in the bottle, the only magic is time. The rest is generic gatorade.

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
