Here I was, ready for a thoughtful comparison between 19th century educational goals and 21st century needs when I encountered this little tidbit: If you search for "A fool is defined as a person who repeats the same behavior and expects different results" in Google, the FIRST result is...
Gil The Jenius.
At least it was a 2005 post. There's hope for Me yet.
Or maybe not: Do a search in Google for "Animal Farm ignorance and apathy" and the FIRST result is...Gil The Jenius.
And what about "describing jenius"? Ditto: Me in FIRST place again. Whether that's good or bad depends, I suppose, on whether you are a spellchecker.
And what about that (in)famous FIRST place, "bat snot"? The Jenius has dropped to #5.
Sigh. Of relief.
In an attempt to correct this apparent misperception of My Jenius, I Googled "tecno sapiens" and "sociodigital".
Sigh: #4 in both.
Finally decided to try "Puerto Rico jenius". The FIRST 3 results are Me. But #4 is Kevin Shockey, he of Portal Al Exito fame.
For some reason, I feel much better now.
(And Jim, don't laugh: you're #12...)
The Jenius Has Spoken.
