[ - ] Dh and I were mugged at gunpoint last year in an elevator. Somebody asked him about it and he said, "Eh, wasn't that bad," well, the gun wasn't pointed at your head, now was it, asshole? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The best buffet in Vegas hands down is at the Wynn. There is always a long ass line but you can skip it by buying VIP tickets for I think a $15pp premium which is worth every damn penny. Many people do not know about the VIP line because it is usually a free perk for sizable gamblers, but frequent hotel guests are told about the ability to pay for it, even if they aren't gamblers.

[ - ] LOL at the post saying Boarding Schools don't just let "anybody in" and you have to be "part of the upper class". I grew up in a very poor/rural area and my mother had a job that most would look down on. I got in to Andover, and there were a big chunk of kids that were on full FA or near full FA. Being dirt poor is actually a hook. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Life changing. I have no idea where I would be today were it not for that school, for the first time in my life I felt accepted and I was surrounded by people that were on and above my level. If you're smarter than a lot of other kids and you're growing up in an area where intelligence isn't really valued, you learn to hide your abilities and play along. I had a lot of problems socially because everybody thought I was weird and I always assumed there was something wrong with me, but then I got to Andover and I flourished. Mentally and emotionally it was the best thing that ever happened to me. [ Reply | More ]

My DH went (his family wasn't very rich but his dad had an expat job that paid for boarding school for the kids in the US) and he - like you - said it was life-changing. He flourished there, awesome at sports, senior prefect, ended up with a merit scholarship to college. He really wants our dc's to go... But I worry about the "rich kid" environment, all that Ritalin being abused (and how do you compete academically if you choose not to take it), more serious drugs, etc. I want to be around to protect/educate dc's about all that stuff on a regular basis.

I didn't really experience the "rich kid" environment. It was there somewhat (and I got some great vacations as a result), but boarding school does a lot to level the playing field. There is a lot (relatively speaking) of "study drug" abuse, but most people aren't involved in that. According to Andover's State of the Academy (annual poll of students on drugs, sex, drinking) I think it was something like 7% of kids that used "study drugs" without a prescription (of course, some are "misdiagnosed" with ADD/ADHD).
