We are no doubt all readers and maybe readers are better at learning from books than from teachers.

I'm not a genius, but whenever I'm in a classroom it won't be long before my mind is shouting FOR GOD'S SAKE GET ON WITH IT! There's always too much padding.
Writing humour is the hardest thing since sliced bread.

Three times this week a Redditor used a Skyrim quote,I felt like an idiot for asking what it was  :(

I've also found out that using emojis on Reddit (especially the cry-laugh) is a huge faux pas.

Now, isn't that interesting.  Almost by definition, we are an association of swots.  And school failed to engage any of us.  If organised education couldn't find a way to be useful to us, who wanted to read and to learn, what the hell are our respective countries spending so much time and money on it for?

I saw an interesting video recently that probably helps to explain why people like us don't enjoy school that much.

The cool thing about writing what you know is that you can always know more.
