    We seemingly are still teaching mathematics like we were 100 years ago. Statistics and probability are off on a tangent from the traditional approach of algebra-then trigonometry-then calculus....

    I accept your tacit confession that you couldn't be bothered to read one sentence I wrote, while also whining that I didn't watch a seven minute video you posted without comment.

    Smart guy.

    You know you are dealing with quality people if they invest time talking about engineering principles, art, books, science - rather than about some crappy reality TV show or salacious...

    Part of it comes down to quality of teaching, but on the flipside anyone who was pulling C's and D's in high school algebra is going to struggle in university freshman calculus.

    We do not seem to produce as many polymaths as classical antiquity. In the modern era, graduate school and the professions relentlessly emphasize micro-specialization.

    Three polymaths I have run...

    That is funny that you think I am a Trump supporter. It makes me think you could not be bothered to even put the energy into reading my post, which was one sentence long. While whining that I should...

    I have never made the slightest derogatory comment to you and have even given you dozens of thanks. - but now I will respond in kind.

    I might have to draw the line at eighties, at least at this point in my life. But it is in the eye of the beholder!

    I agree that stupidity and lack of character are immediate game changers.

    I am not going to watch the video, but I am going to guess on average: middle aged, overweight, blindingly white - aka, your typical Fox news demographic.

    I have learned that about 97 percent of the anecdotes and salacious gossip repeated on message boards are based on guesswork, stupendous exaggeration, willful misrepresentation, blatant libel.

    Keep up the good work!

    I made it a project to acquire a working knowledge of English history, because it sheds a lot of light on American history.

    Now if somebody asked me anything about Latin...

    You are not American, your opinion on the U.S. Center for Disease Control is irrelevant.

    Yes, that was at least two centuries after the Anglo-Saxons were replaced by the Normans at the top of England's pecking order.

    Magna Carta only was a supposed guarantee of the civil rights of...

    That does not make sense to me. France and Germany are social welfare states and have large populations. Larger populations obviously have larger tax and revenue bases.

    I have no idea why...

    It is funny how Deplorables want to call Joe Biden an unreconstructed Marxist-Lenist, but they absolutely hate it when one points to the wealthy social welfare states of Scandinavia examples of...

    The cultural-linguistic group we call the Anglo-Saxons do not have any political tradition we aspire to. They established petty autocratic monarchies, and were defeated and replaced by a Norman and...

    Example number five billion of why you do not put people who hate government in charge of running the government.

    They have no interest in effective, clean government. They simply view government...

    Anglo-Saxons are a semi-invented cultural-linguist group of people who have not existed for 800 years -- and the Anglo-Saxons most certainly have nothing to do with the English tradition of liberal...

    A nuke-carrying B-29 would have had to cross 2,000 kilometers of Soviet-occupied territory to reach Moscow, and even assuming it made it, there is no guarantee Stalin would have been anywhere in the...
