Why I don't homeschool

I just don't think I could handle Big Brother's scientific curiosity on a regular basis.
In the past three days we have had the following scientific experiments:
1. Get a "punching balloon" (the big kind, with the elastic band that ties around one end) and attach the end to the garden hose. Turn on the hose and see how big the balloon gets before the water pressure causes it to explode.
2. Dip a turkey baster in bubble solution and try to make bubbles with it.
I'm happy to let his science teacher deal with his zeal for experimentation for part of the day! Plus, she keeps small animals in the classroom. Rumor has it that she's been lobbying for permission to bring in a snake.
Better her than me.
