    Life would be easier for you if you just learned the history, though.

    Trust someone who’s studied history; it’s actually a bit surprising how much stuff we could’ve avoided in our modern history if we had just remembered our past history, because there is a surprising degree of repetition of like events.

    Unfortunately, as kids, we think we’re experts on what we’re going to need to know in the future, so we tune out what we consider boring and non-useful. My best subjects were English and history- two that so many kids glide through, not paying attention.
    Wanna scare people and make them run? Just walk up say "Define ‘subject’ and ’predicate.’

    For those who wondered: Sunday’s strip is finally up. Tech glitches, which I’m told affected a number of strips, kept it offline all day yesterday.

    I never believed I “knew everything” however I did figure out the more I know, the more I don’t know around 16 or 17. Later saw it said over 2,000 years ago by either Aristotle or Plato.

    It’s been said that no matter what you say (we’ll ignore “how to make a transistor”), some Roman soldier said it on a battlefield someplace about 2,000 years ago….

    Meantime, learn whatever you can, whenever you can. It can’t hurt, and you never know what you’ll need, or when.

    @SMMAssociates

    And considering that civilization didn’t really begin with Rome- it must have been said before that as well.

    Boy is that ever true. A lot of stuff relates to other things that are helpful.
