[quote:Anonymous Coward 797180:MV85NjMyNjNfMTUwMjIxNjhfQzZBQTNCMTk=] Yes, NJ in mid 1980's... Classes were already segregated by aptitude... ie 6th grade had 6-1, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4, and 6-5. 6-1 being the most talented/hard working and 6-5 being the dregs and slackers. Think I was in 6-1 for most classes but 6-2 for 1 or 2. This system was in place at my junior high (grades 6-8). Outside of the general splitting us up, we also have had a gifted and talented group of maybe 6-8 children. For awhile we met an hour before normal school each Thursday. That teacher also organized a week of marine biology at the nearby Sandy Hook aquatic museum... we had classes, took scuba diving lessons, and strolled the beach looking for animals. (There was rumor of that teacher getting canned for bringing some girls to the mall to try on bathing suits, LOL). And we often did get pulled out of class.... once 3-4 of use were tasked with getting a helium balloon to balance out... neither hitting the ceiling or allowing its weight objects to hit the floor... this was literarily outside of class... just some tables set up in a connecting few hallways. We practiced creative problem solving and once or twice even danced (???) before normal school. It was fun... a mix of boys girls and races... and the girl I had a crush on was in there too.... a weird but fun experience growing up. - serinx [/quote]

Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
