Amazing how uninformed people can be!
You know, when I was his age, I was still well informed about stuff I had an interest in. But, I grew up in an age when they still actually gave you an education in school, rather than just a passing grade, for fear of lowering your self esteem, if they were to give you anything else.
It's amazing in an era of never ending knowledge available at our fingertips 24/7 365. Then again, he probably wasn't aware of what he has...and I see a lot of adults who suffer from the same thing...Thanks for the comments!
