  2. Those excursions are fraught with collegiate-level book-learnin’ in jobber lot quantities.
    Folks should be careful with that, because they might learn something, and acquire an undocumented college diploma, or even graduate-level expertise.

  5. I’m sure reading Homer would help me in my current situation, 2,500 years or so later. I already know about homosexuals, and I prefer the truth to lies. One of the problems with ancient texts is not that they are irrelevant, but they are lost in the millions of bits of information that already exist. The other is that you can open a Bible, and deduce everything Homer wrote in a couple of chapters of the Old Testament. Just don’t bother telling me I’m not an educated man if I haven’t read Homer. It sounds elitist, and it is. I would reply that YOU’RE not an educated man, because you’ve read Homer. It caused you to become a person who stupidly believed that everyone else was uneducated. And if the Greeks are so fucking wonderful, why isn’t everyone in the world trying to emulate what they are now?
