“It has become almost a cliché to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance of literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science and proudly claim incompetence in mathematics.”

~ Richard Dawkins

    I dunno. It seems to me that the average person is pretty content with not knowing much. And maybe they're right. I've been a semi-intellectual my whole life and I'm not necessarily better off than many others in relationships or work. But I get his point. And those who boast of these things had better not complain if they pay consequences.
