I guess you have a good excuse, even though I didn't have a car till after I was 18.

The first one was worth 3 quiz grades, the last three were worth 5 quiz grades. Simple book reviews that, like always, I could have BS'ed my way thru. I had a 96 before they were factored in.

I slept thru a Life Insurance Prelicensing class and managed to finish the test first, with the second highest grade in the class. Passed the state exam first try. Failed the fingerprinting portion. Damn machines never work right!
Advanced Placement mixed with a ton of Honors classes really doesn't help me in the amount of time I can spend outside of school. I'm part of the school yearbook too so I have to stay after at school until about 4 o' clock everyday, and I spend most of my Saturday working community service so I can't find the time to get a job. Don't have a license or car yet either so it'd be a hassle for my parents to drive me places when they both work. Of course, someone could argue that if I just stop spending time on cf I might be able to spend a bit more time on school work or even get a job, but.. i'd rather not

I was like you Clutch and started work at a young age. My parents stopped giving me money to buy the things I want a long time ago so I had to make it on my own. So I've been working since I was 14 years old apart from now because of my schooling. I don't regret it because work experience is pretty crucial to get the better jobs in the future.

Exactly. Everything I have, save for a few dress shirts/pants/ties I got as gifts, I earned myself. Even all of my %#@*ty cars. That's why I respected them more than the kids who's parents gave them a new jag or benz or beemer.

Believe me, I'm glad to hear you guys that don't have jobs are doing things with school. That is very respectable.

yeah, I'm going to buy my car with my own money. My mom already pays for my driving school stuff. I don't have a lot of money, but I prefer to buy a cheap car that gets me from A to B with my own money rather than asking my mom for 20k to get a nice car. Even if she did have that kind of money, I wouldn't ask her to buy a car for me.

Why is it easier?

Isn't it down to personal aptitude?

I know for example that I wouldn't be able to plumb a washing machine, and thats considered relatively simple, but surely its more down to relative skills and what you are good at?

Some people find advanced maths easy, some don't.....

Well IMO it's quite much easier. If I'd have instructions, I might be able to plumb a washing machine.
If I'd give a plumber my maths homework and the formula that he needs to calculate it, most likely he wouldn't know what to do.
