    This Could Explain a Lot

    I wasn't dumb as a doorknob in my youth, and I'm not Mensa material now.  I was always a good student, but this isn't about academics. In the winters of my youth, our parents would pack us in the car and we’d drive a couple miles to a really good sledding hill. ...
