    Yes, I passed my GED when I took it.  I had been an "A" student, started smoking pot, taking acid, etc.   I was able to skip and pass American History just showing up on test days,  but that did not work for physics and algebra trig in 11th grade.  

    Of course, I encouraged my daughter to stay in school and she went straigt through and is now a lawyer for Legal Aid.

    I paid a large price for my drug abuse and alcholism.  I graduated college at 34 and law school at 37.  

    So while it was "fun" at the time, staying in high school would have been a better choice for me.

    As the Grateful Dead said, "what along strange trip it's been."
