    Oxbow lakes, anyone remember that? Classic geography nonsense that has no application to anything anyone in the class would ever do. All about how if a river changed its course a pointless little lake was formed that nobody cared about.

    Anyone else remember pointless school stuff?

    I don't remember why I had to learn history as a lesson when my hopeful career (Broadcast engineer or technician) doesn't require me to know that much about Magna Carta.
