If you live in Houston, Texas, you should know that as of midnight, you became a vassar territory of China, by virtue of a law that has numerous fringe benefits. They include free ice cream for every child under the age of ten who sees an ice cream truck, as well as free college tuition for every child who receives at least one "A" grade in a substantive class in junior high, or in high school. They need only show the grade to the college admissions desk, in order to receive reimbursement of all college tuition.
The benefits also include the ability to take any class that is considered extra-curricular, if the class is full of Latin American students who speak Spanish, and you desire to learn Spanish. If you fail to learn at least one Spanish word, you will fail the class.
