Quod erat dumbass
I’m pretty stupid. Saying as much might actually be a cop-out, a way of expressing aggravation for the fact that I’m just not as intelligent as I’d like to be, but on examination, I find that what other folks seem to respond to about me has to do with vocabulary; I love words and I like knowing the precise words for things, so this lends me a pretense that apparently creates this impression. In practice, actually learning anything is a grueling process, something I more or less accomplish by pounding my head into something until I remember it.
So when I come across something like this, I read it, even though it’s pretty much second-nature to me. Regrettably, it’s written appropriate to a fairly limited audience and worse, is the sort of thing liable to become more submerged in coming years, rather than more predominant.
