Sentence of the day:
That man walked out of town and saw the rice fields.

Today I decided to go look up how Japan has their education system set up. Couple of fun, interesting, and downright neat things I found out. Japanese kids start elementary school at six instead of five round these parts. They also have a setup that seems to be very similar to here in the U.S.

Looking a little deeper into the elementary section I noticed on other interesting tidbit. Seems to be that school kids eat lunch in the classroom. Now I don't remember having a food fight throughout my academic career, but could you imagine having one in any of your classrooms? The skeleton that always sat in the corner would never be the same again!
