Ignorance Beats Foolishness


I think ignorance gets a bad rap.

You don't know where Toronto is? You're ignorant. You don't how a carburetor works? You're ignorant.

But, we're all ignorant before someone teaches us these things. The idea of "common knowledge" that everyone should know is kind of preposterous. If someone is intelligent and open to learning, I'll take them ignorant over someone who knows what S.A.R.S. stands for and thinks they have everything figured out.

Intelligence without wisdom is worthless.
