Best FUHS School Memories:

Blowing out the windows in Mr. Sproul's chemistry class; pulling the hinge pins on the door to 'our' English class; maxing a science exam given at USC; running a noon 'broadcast'; being kicked upstairs to FJC after three years rather than being allowed to graduate (got diploma anyway)
