I didn't "get" math until I started going to the bars in college. I had to figure out my out counts in 301 and 501 and the guys would get on you if you took too long, so I figured it out and I've been going strong ever since.

Plus there was this infomercial I watched about that time as well. Probably the only one I've ever watched, but it showed how to multiply two-, three- and four-digit numbers in your head. I've been doing that ever since.

I'm good at doing math in my head. I've always been a science/math guy, though. Writing is a different story. Even though I'm not a very good writer, I'm at least smart enough to recognize good writing when I see it.

Fantasy Baseball would actually be a much better teaching tool than fantasy football because a lot of the statistics are derived making them harder to figure out. Of course most kids hate baseball, so it probably wouldn't go over as well.
