Thirsty for Knowledge?

My God, why isn’t everybody doing this? There are lectures out there by experts, on every subject in the known universe, and they’re FREE. They’re called TED talks, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. And I’ve yet to come across one that wasn’t a pleasure to watch.

Who needs higher education? You can learn everything you need to know while playing FreeCell on your laptop. When I think of how people have sacrificed everything for education, how knowledge is, theoretically, power, and how money is so often the impediment to advancement, I want to scream TEEEEEED!

I’ll be watching you. I’ll know if you’ve clicked through to the link above. So what’s it going to be? Ignorance or enlightenment? Come on, people! Join me as I sip from the font of all human erudition!

This is what you get when you type “font” into Google Images, thus proving that Google is NOT the font of all knowledge.

    I LOVE TED! Have you seen the scuba diving woman in the wheelchair? Or learned how to dry your handson one paper towel? I can just feel the brain cells expanding. My Beloved got me a Roku for work just so I can listen and learn. Only bad thing, I find myself staring slack jawed at the screen when I’m trying to make a deadline!
