We're no match for you.
And you seem to have no intention of becoming so Bernie. Fine example to set the kids in science classes I must say.
The problem, or one of the problems more like, is that you don't seem aware of it. The assertion and the low wit suffices. Mrs Palin is perfect. Maybe you don't like her becuse she shows you yourselves WRIT LARGE. She's Miss Mature America.
Some of the recent responses I've been getting from "you know who" are a disgrace to the dollars expended on a long education and which is lengthening as we speak. Although recent events might have brought that nice little earner to a pause. It's probably not permanent but you never know. I've not seen so many headless chickens since I don't know when. At least they look like they know what they are doing when dealing with a natural disaster. FEMA excepted of course.
You have actually come to believe that you are giving the kids a proper education to fit them for their future roles as bed-pan washers and gas pumpers simply on the evidence that you have made a speech to that effect. And sat down hrruumpping. As if the budding scientists can't take good care of themselves whatever you try to teach them. There's more budding vice girls in the classes than budding scientists. Proper scientists I mean. Not asserted ones. They have a production line for them like Detroit used to have for cars.
I daresay you might have been a bit of a budding something yourself once Bernie. Matthew Arnold mentions the trait in some young men to confound their teachers. Match them. Over-match them. Show the buggers up not to put to fine a point on it. If you ever felt that urge they've put you right since. You're a bourgeois twit to a scientist. I'm one myself actually but I'm only acting. It's a comfortable life I find. I de-internalised the role a long while ago.
But it's a pleasure to hear from you again after all this time. Have you been redecorating?
Your remark has the intention of despising the higher learning, to which I aspire, using inverted snobbery. Hofstadter explains it better than I can.
