    The area connected with mistakes will be minimum or maybe absolutely no outside the classroom. Those students who're active and also razor-sharp, they typically take part in things to do and also study probably the most items. The application of information could be the integral objective connected with education.

Just a quick correction about the Aunt Jemima segment on yesterday's show. You all mentioned how you remembered Aunt Jemima's syrup being in a bottle shaped like a woman. The brand of syrup was Mrs. Butterworth's owned by Pinnacle Foods.

I just wanted to say that you guys missed what I would call the best breakfast item ever created, a Kolache. In Texas you can find them in any local doughnut shop. Also you missed doughnuts. Thanks for such a great show.

I have been listening to your podcasts while driving around remote parts of Australia, it is very entertaining.

I had been listened to a USA uni quiz called Super Quiz, and amazed at how low a level of knowledge the contestants and hosts have - so was a nice change to listen to Good Job Brain - and find it packed full of interesting trivia.

Dulce is Italian for 'sweet', it's pronounced like dull`-chee.
