Which proves another theorem of mine. Folks with a sheepskin on the 
office wall stop learning, and by your stopping without reading the 
explanation is evidence of that effect. I can lead you to the facts, but 
like the horse refusing to drink when led to water, I'll drop the reins.  
You may, or may not drink the water of knowledge. I can't control that.
