I am glad you posted the "Retarded" ... "just Slow starter".

I had a long agreement speech and several examples (actually a rant) ready but lost it. So I'll do a short agreement speech with an example or two.

Yep, so many people are what I call "late bloomers". Everyone learns at a different pace and/or at a different time. Not everyone's brain is ready at the same time or to learn the same things. At other times it is attitude, nothing to do with IQ. Different subject.

My wife was labeled as "retarded" at one point. Hell, she is way smarter than I am. She graduated with full honors from high school. Took honor classes in college with mostly As (no Cs) and did the same for her M.B.A. degree at a major university. Plus she didn't mind working at a job while going to school full time. She has been extremely successful in her career.

I was and still am a very slow reader and poor speller. I wasn't given much chance at college. I went anyway. I took a reading test after I had my degree in pure math (calculus as the first course) with minors in physics, history, language arts, and business. After earning my degree I enrolled in a college class, couldn't get enough. Not really a nerd. Nor am I a proponent of "all go to college". I am big on learning a skill. There I go, trying to get on my soapbox again.

Sorry, back to the shortened agreement speech and with my personal experience.

The class I was enrolled in was all freshman except me. We were required to take a reading test. The results showed I would not graduate from college. I scored the lowest in the class of all freshman. The professor said he guessed that the test was invalid since one person in the class already had a degree and scored the lowest. It had to be me. I was the only one in the class with a degree. I later earned a master's degree.

So as you implied, slow is OK.

Just a hint: you can buy a new switch and then just remove the parts you need to restore the old one. That gets you away from re-running the wires through the handlebar.
