Help with my kid's homework!

The little dude's math homework is to ask 10 friends (kids, but y'all count) if they prefer red or blue. We could roll dice, but I think it would be fun for him to have our internet friends answer instead. Which do you prefer, red or blue? Thanks! Blue won by a landslide!

In addition to being a huge fan of 1950s and 1950s jazz, I'm a huge fan of jazz album cover design from the same era. My graphic design style obviously owes a lot to mid-century modernism, the Bauhaus, and the International Typographic Style. Hard-bop era Jazz album covers, particularly those designed by Reid Miles, are some of the greatest examples of that style of minimalist design. They prove that graphic design doesn't have to be ...

Furthermore, stop making the +1 button so confusion on G+! I can't give you props when you confuse me like that!

I never got to see Merle, but I saw Johnny about 20 years ago. I've played many Merle songs on gigs through the years.

What is the single most important thing in whatever it is you do? If someone who was just starting out asked you, the expert (and you're definitely an expert in something), this question, what would you tell them?

Here are the rules:

You can be an expert in as many things as you want.

No arguments. If you disagree with someone, post it as your single most important thing for that category.

No discussion in this thread. Only listing your things.

My son will be 7 in a month(!!!) and he's a creative beast. I'm constantly looking for ways to nurture his imagination, and a couple of days ago (inspired partially by The Dangerous Book for Boys), I officially introduced him to the single most important item in my own creative development: the Mentzer Red Box D&D.

So far, we've played through the introductory tutorial, and we'll probably play through the rest of the solo adventure in the Player's book tomorrow.

What are some good old school (or OSR) modules that are appropriate for a 7-year-old?

Tangent: I've always wanted to try a "hopping through time and space" reading of a collection of CYOA books where, when you make a choice, you turn to the specified page, but in a different book.

The restaurant inside Asian Super Market has some of the best, most authentic Chinese food I've ever had. The service is quick, the prices are reasonable, and everything just tastes better than other places I've had them (well, MK's has similar quality, but the flavor profiles are different).

If you get anything at Mike & Ed's other than the ribs, you are doing yourself a disservice. They are competent at their other selections, but their ribs are among the best in the world. The staff will attempt to trick you into getting sauce, but don't let them. The ribs don't need them. At all.

Mr. Wu cooks authentic Chinese food off the menu if you ask. Sometimes he invents new dishes for me. He rocks.
