This will be the first Memorial Day weekend in over 10 years that I'll not be wearing dark blue wool, marching for several miles with heel plates on asphalt, and standing awkwardly during interminably long speeches by local and state dignitaries.
@Elite: I'd be more worried about Pakistan's nuclear stockpile falling into terrorists hands. Doubly so, since their 200,000 troops in the North-West are having their asses handed to them by a few thousand militia.
Extensive studies have shown that lengthy exams are a waste of time. They neither improve knowledge retention nor are better at testing acquired knowledge when compared to shorter exams. All they do is encourage "binge studying", where you cram for extended periods of time and then forget it all after the exam is over with.
