1 stick + 1 stick = fire


Increasing the number of things you have can be useful, but increasing the amount of knowledge you have can be transformative. This is what makes the ways a society shares knowledge so critical….

    Thanks for your post. I think Sir Francis Bacon once said, “Knowledge exist in two forms: one actually knowing something and the other knowing how to find it.

    I know you like poetry and have a great boy you are raising, so I thought you might like my favorite bathroom wall joke for those with young men.

    If you sprinkle
    when you tinkle
    please be neat
    and clean the seat

    Sir John
