Re: Controversial Montana Sex-Education Proposal

Sounds mostly fine, though I'd perhaps move the different types of sex discussion to 6th or 7th grade. IMO, most 8th graders already know, so no point in telling them again. A far as the erotic art...I didn't take that to mean porn. I thought they meant, well, techniques, ways to better pleasure you...

Re: Pencils!

It depends on the subject. For general writey-stuffs, I prefer an 0.5 pen.

However, for music and Japanese I prefer a mechanical pencil, either 0.5 or 0.7 - it doesn't bother me overly much.

For other writing, if no pen is available, I prefer a normal pencil. The exact type doens't bother me at all
