And the only degree I have is a first degree black belt in martial arts awarded to me by Mr. Dan Miller who used to run a martial arts school called Christian Faith Tae Kwon Do and then changed it to White Tiger.
Take care and may God bless.
If you don’t know something, you had to Backrub it. Yeah… not much of a ring to it, does it?
Several successful people didn’t obtain a college degree: Michael Dell, Dave Thomas, Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Richard Branson. Just to name a few more.
Back in the 50’s, graduating high school was the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree today.
Thank goodness for that. I wouldn’t like something called Backrub owning all my data.
Spent years in college. My brother’s favorite question, ‘Why do you go to school so much, are dumb or something?’
I’m from Quebec in a region where the snow geese, the verses in the text, leave their rest area near the St-Laurent river to feed twice a day in the farmer fields. It’s legal to hunt them there. We take about many thousand of geese flocking into a feils. You can imagine wivht king of damage they can do when you just seed the field…
College can only teach you what’s already known. Sometimes it’s better to start fresh.
What we don’t seem to remember is that these gentlemen were / are exceptional exceptions! I’m sure we could fill volumes about the folks who never got a degree, let alone a decent education, and ended up in dead-end jobs and spent their lives unfulfilled.
Of the college drop outs, the two Harvard dropouts had a better gig and the Reed College drop out did not go home because he was afraid of what his parents would think so he took several poster making and calligraphy classes and we can thank those classes for all the fonts we have besides just Times New Roman and Helvetica.
In America, guys standing in fields shooting at geese are called “hunters”.
I see three thieves, a wrestler, one pathological liar, one fraud, and one very nice person.
Apparently, in Lincolns time the standards to become a lawyer were somewhat relaxed compared to today.
Years ago, people were cracking wise about how “I Googled [name]” sounded naughty. “I Backrubbed [name]” would sound worse.
They probably weren’t against it, but they were studying facts, during their days, of which little to none was being taught during their days.
Are you sure it wasn’t “BackStab”…?
I’m glad they changed the name. “I’m gonna’ google it” sounds much better than “I think I’ll give it a backrub”…
I re-watched “Into the Spider-Verse” and one of the many changes they make is keeping Google as Backrub.
