Listen to his story about why he teaches and how he teaches. You'll be glad you did.

Here's a story that defies explanation:

http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,70131-13564124,00.html?f=rss It goes something like this. A guy goes duck hunting a shoots a duck. He takes it home and throws it in his fridge. Two days later the wife goes to get it out and finds that it's still alive. Then... well, you'll just have to read it to find out. Suffice it to say that I'll bet the next time he shoots a duck he'll also strangle it for good measure. :-)
