It's not you, it's us.

The gentleman does understand, of course, that this is the nature of the Wulfshead, right?

We're all strange here.

Don't fret about it, sir; you're not alone: people do not always get it. This is quite normal, actually. Statistically speaking.

Sir Ken Robinson explains it thusly:

The better question is: What does the post mean, TO YOU?

Thank you for dropping by. Please, do come again.


  1. Oh. Now I get it. Yeah. Obviously.

    Now to go read the latest issue of The New Yorker.

  2. Educators know there are only two types of schooling: indoctrination and education.

    Indoctrination teaches a student how to cleave to a party line, and to recite the slogans and bromides of the accepted conformity. He is taught only how to swallow lies, and there is no assurance he will not swallow the propaganda of foes as easily as that of friends. Such folk are hopelessly provincial to their time and place. Unable to distinguish truth from fable, they swallow both or spit both, and become zealots, or, worse yet, cynics. The zealot holds that truth can be won with no effort; the cynic, that no effort will suffice.

    Education teaches the art of skeptical inquiry. The student learns the thoughts of all the great minds of the past, so that the implications and mistakes of philosophy of various schools are not unknown to him. He learns to be undeceived by those who claim to know a last and final truth.

    1. There are only two types of schooling in the world, Boggin, those that profess there are only two types of schooling in the world and those that don’t. :-)

    2. Great post. If only this was the mantra of every school in the world, what a very different world it could be. Alas, it is for only a select few teachers who carry this knowledge to safeguard it for future generations as the official establishment is always a hyper-PC punching bag for over-concerned parents who should look to their own house.

      As I like to say 'the answer to the question is always to question the answer'
