I went to school in the '70s and not many others challenged the teachings about Columbus or slavery back then. Any different now?

The point is, WHY was that in the curriculum, and is BS like it still there? Because I was apparently the only student who knew it was BS.
Why? Because your school obviously needed a teacher real bad and did not take the time to get a proper one.

My youngest son is 11. He had issues with his 3rd grade teacher which ultimately lead to me homeschooling him. He called her on Columbus as a matter of fact, and advised her to read about Leif Erickson(sp?) that ended with him isolated and in the principal's office. If I was the type I should really Sue her and the school district but that is another topic, and not really my style. The answer you seek is " The exact same or even more of the BS backwards thinking still goes on today.”

So... you did not like non-secular songs. Okay, I get that.
It takes about seven seconds for the food or liquid to reach the stomach. It then takes six to eight hours for the food to reach small intestines, while it takes 45 to 60 minutes for liquids to reach your bladder.
Additionally, I would suggest that you ask physicians about bodily functions instead of "health teachers" quoting dubious books.

People wouldn't likely get hungry as often if it took the time you suggested.
