  1. It’s just as frustrating going the other way, when you have really, really cool, important, cutting-edge information but everyone around you is too stupid to worship you for it. (sigh)

  2. I love Calvin and I aspire to be like him – free-thinking, creative, and having command of the useless information. Sometimes that useless info makes for great conversation!

    • I always loved Calvin too. It’s one of my favorite comics. He reminds me of my son and my daughter is Ruthie from One Big Happy. When my kids were little, it was like these comics were relating my life. LOL And I agree, useless trivia of all sorts can make for the most in-depth and interesting conversations.

    • I wish MY teachers had understood that concept. LOL And yes, I agree, schools have become too standardized. What is that quote? “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

  3. I know what Lewis and Clark did! They were on a TV show from the 80’s starring Gabe Kaplan as Lewis and Guich Koock as Clark and were two radio DJ’s that had a morning show, and in one episode they were invited to do a broadcast from a nudist colony and spent the whole half-hour show kvetching about having to get naked in front of other nudists, though it was TV in the 70’s and nobody actually got naked in the whole show. Um… maybe being a vast store-house of utterly useless information is not such a useful thing?
