State law for Kansas says you can get your learners at 14.

Oh dang. Waiting until you are 15 might not be a bad thing. Can't be more than a years wait at worst. In the meantime, it gives you time to study for the test.

My brother just got his learners permit. Dad says I can’t get mine till I’m 15. ?

At least its not as complicated there as it is in Michigan, probably. First you have to take 6 hours of in person class and a written test, then another 6 hours driving with an instructor, then you get your learners permit. After you've driven with that for over 30 hours over 6 months or so, you can finally take another 6 hours of class and a written test, and after you've driven at least 60 hours you can take your final driving test. Yeeesh.

Wow. All my brother had to do was take the written test!

In VT all you have to do to get your LP is to pass a test at 15. After that you need 30 hours driving, 10 of which at night, all with a parent, Drivers Ed class, and then you need to pass the driving test after a year of having the permit.

Same here, except there is 32 hours of online stuff.

I didn’t know they had a corvid vaccine!

I hear it's quite popular.  People are raven' and crow-ing about it.  Personally though, I plan to jay away from it.  One guy had a side effect and now he's obsessively scrub-ing.

You haven’t heard of the crow that attacked a baby who then realized that there was a thing as a human-crow-vid combined with some kind of long medical word that I can’t spell at the end? With like every letter of the alphabet......

If I don't come on in the next day or two, you may guess that I'm dead. I am SOOOOOOO tired. I have been playing (rope swing, wrestling, swimming, etc.) with three other boys, nonstop, very hard for the last seven hours. Good night, good by, I hope someone thinks of me once in awhile.
