Also about Books+12We wish we could inject information directly into our brains, but that's exactly what we do when we listen to a lecture or read a book. amirite?
Also about perfect, learn, racism, and teaching+171We should make a document detailing a perfect civilisation, devoid of racism, sexism, and teaching the secret to clean energy once we discover it, so that any future civilisation can learn from it, and hopefully develop past the tribal stage before the men-are-better-at-hunting-and-therefore-everything-because-hunting-is-the-only-thing thing gets ingrained, amirite?
Also about book and perfect+83A good audio-book is pretty much the perfect film for the book, without the cuts of your favourite parts or bad casting, along with still looking the way you want it to look, amirite?
Also about children and book+151Children's books these days are way too predictable and unrealistic. Somebody should start a series where they write real world versions of fairy tales; the first book could be titled: "Cinderalla: What Actually Happened" And the story would be exactly like the original, except no singing animals or fairy godmothers and the book ends when Cinderella dies at age 50 after 30 years of grueling labor, amirite?
Also about teaching+485There are two kinds of teachers. Those that are genuinely interested in teaching and have a passion for it, and those that have failed in their chosen career and who instead now teach it eg: a failed accountant teaching accounting. Unfortunately there seem to be more of the latter. Amirite?
Also about Books+25War will never end, it's human nature to feed the beast, amirite?
Also about children, book, and learn+290Where did wizard born children in Harry Potter learn to read and write? The book didn't say anything about school before Hogwarts, and the people don't know what guns are, or electricity, or a lot of other stuff most people learn about in elementary school. amirite?
