No matter ghow many times I watch this it still cracks me up! It's so true! I have a job and graduated with a bachelor's degree. Still once a person finds out I was homeschooled, they immediatly, no matter what they thought of me before, start asking (or actually TELLING me) that these things must be true!
I hear you! I had to take Latin and calligraphy too. In elementary grades as well as in the high school grades.
Also I got to take art, like watercolor, pastels and the like. Public schools don't have art programs like that (at least to my knowledge).
Homeschoolers also have the ability to do there school work where ever they want. In their rooms, out in the yard while sitting on a swing, at the kitchen table.....we aren't stuck in a room with the fear that the asbestos in the walls is slowly killing us (sorry I couldn't help but say that, hehe)
Ahahaha! I expected lameness but this was actually pretty awesome. Especially his fake homeschooler persona. Now, to be fair, I was pretty darned sheltered as a kid, but not so much that I couldn't figure things out on my own once I left home. It was a lot harder than I think it needed to be, but I managed. I just wish I'd been socialized with more /different/ people when I was a kid. I had tons of conservative Christian middle-class-ish friends growing up, but I never met a Muslim, a pagan, a homosexual, an immigrant, or even someone with liberal political leanings, just to name a few. As a result, although I didn't dislike these people, I felt pretty damn uncomfortable around them for a while simply because of all the misconceptions I'd been raised with about them. And I do think that it was a damn shame that it took me so long to open myself up to them fully.
Hey, don't knock YouTube! no, but really! that was extremely amusing! I have had people assume ALL of those thing about me, and none of them are true! ( I NEVER get days off and I've NEVER done school in my PJ's!!)
