For example, most people had to learn the state capitals, but maybe some didn't in school. What are the things that are known to be common in school, but you never did them? My childhood years were mainly in the 80s decade. I personally never had to learn/do the following: - Learn/memorize The Gettysburg Address - Take a shower after P.E. (in jr or HS) If I think of others, I'll post them.
