  • Nov 4 2011: I wish I'd been taught hands-on how to grow my own food, and how to use basic tools and do rudimentary repairs when things broke. Schools think parents will teach that and parents think schools will teach that and then nobody teaches it. (Indian education system)
    Oh, and sex ed as well. And understanding the opposite sex. Would have saved me from a whole lot of trouble and guilt complexes and confusion ;)
