Now I didn't find these [I did, just not on my own]. It was first over at core77, then at notcot.org. It is one of the most fantastic videos I've seen in a while. Even more amazing is that its over thirty years old! I don't remember getting any of this when I was a kid in school. I did get something, that was more from my mom and her flash cards [I should go find those...]. As I recall, school just didn't encourage this enough. And by the time I was in high school it was pretty much left to the way side. Now I'm reminded of Sir Ken Robinson's speech. Now my mind is off and racing with ideas, I hope yours is too.
