I continue to take enormous comfort from the fact that no amount of googling or youtubing will fix illiteracy or innumeracy.

Or another view if I may Leady; "Ignorance can be cured by Education. Stupidity however, cannot."

A slight thread drift, one of the magnets on our fridge one says "You can't fix STUPID. Even with duct tape!"

I'm pretty sure LeadSled hasn't really left, still produces many a paragraph.

Very true S7700, now if I want to be spoken down to and have the condescension level ramped up to extreme I watch Alan Jones and Andrew Bolt.

Attributed to Einstein, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity.”

Good news, Sunfish has been found! Clearly limited access to a computer has been the issue:

Interesting thread. Facebook, and the other platforms have definitely stolen many eyeballs from these forums.
Also, I remember trawling PPRuNe a lot more when flying was something I did in my spare time.
Having worked fulltime in the industry since 2002, I just don't have the same interest in the topics being discussed.
