At least I know where Plainville is. There's a good Irish pub in Plainville: The Chieftain.

This is getting out of hand. The education level like the 10 foot basketball rim height needs to be adjusted since we are being deluged with 7 foot tall brains

Rathma and her husband, Vishwanath, who both work in the software industry, emigrated from near Mangalore, India, in 2002. Indian-American children have dominated both the geography bee and the Scripps National Spelling Bee in recent years. Vishwanath said the trend can be attributed to coming from a country of 1.2 billion people.

"That brought us the competitive spirit," he said. "If we don't work hard and put forth our best effort, we can't succeed in this world."
