Re: 1990: "Driving Cars"

Isn't that just asking the less honest kids to forge their parents' signature? Provided the parents don't obligingly sign whatever so that the kids can drive themselves to school? Could be.

Re: 1766: "Apple Spectrum"

I have never heard of honeycrisp apples before. My first instinct was that it was a joke about some kind of cereal or something.
Now I'm just a little bit saddened that apparently I've been deprived of the best apples the world has to offer. I'll have to try some someday.
