Comments: Welcome to Planet Bones

I cannot fathom how anybody -- teacher, lawyer, politician, airline pilot, whatever -- could hate Bones, unless they themselves had severe mental illness.

I have no doubt he must be a lovable kid in most circumstances, but if I were a teacher I couldn't help but stroke out too if he gave me answers like those. Either that, or laugh hysterically like a lunatic. Then again, I've worked before with truly lovable kids that could make you tear your hair out. Goes with the territory.

I think you and I, Bou, have the same problem - we both cannot tolerate irrationality. That is, unless Bugs Bunny or Wile E. Coyote is involved.

Whatever the tribulations will be while he gets an Edjamacashun, I cannot wait to see what kind of brilliant, creative adult Bones will grow up to be.

I think he sounds like a sweet kid, Bou :) !

Maybe his reading tests are not so great, but I bet he is a wonderful writer. He must come up with great stories!

Hey, maybe he knows running away from a bear is incredibly stupid, and the sandwich seemed like the best survival answer. It ain't the answer from the book; it's just better.

TN - I was thinking that too. Throw the sandwich, distract the bear. Run and you attract the bear.

Of course, it depends on what kind of bear and what the situation is. And how much you really want to eat the sandwich yourself.
