So, how does this work again?
BlogShares is a fantasy stock market for weblogs. Players get to invest a fictional $500, and blogs are valued by inbound links.

As if the real stock market weren't bad enough.
And as far as I can tell, this isn't a bad April Fool's joke either.
And currently, I have a valuation of $0.00, but my outgoing links are worth a whopping $11.11!.
Woo hoo! At this rate, I'll be able to afford a cup of coffee in a few weeks!
HomeworkMuch crying, wailing and knashing of teeth going on.
I knew that homework was bad, but not that bad!
I don't recall getting homework in second and third grades. In fact, I don't think it was until sixth grade that I started getting any homework; Spring's kids, one i second, one in third, have homework. Quite a bit of homework.
But not six long drawn out hours of homework.
In discussing this with Spring and our friend Gregory (who also has two kids) it seems that since the US educational system is bad, that parents across the country (or at least here in Florida) have cried out long and loud for more homework! At all grade levels. Like that will make up for lack of funding, overcrowding, poor teacher morale and a daycare center atmosphere.
