    No, but she also wasn't concerned that it was an active track, nor that I had to warn her not to touch both tracks at once in case they were actively electrified... Lol. All she cared about was it was cold and I only got 20 shots before she was too cold to shoot more lol

    Geez.. she's even too dumb to wear clothes outside when it's cold... and she wears high heels to walk on train tracks! But it appears she can read...

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    It's amazing how little general knowledge many people have, even when much older than she. Schools don't encourage broad-based knowledge, and are teaching subjects more than encouraging learning. I know young people who got into Stanford and UC Berkeley who just don't know much generally. They learned their subjects in school and gave the right answers on tests, but are incurious. They are not unintelligent, but are uninquisitive. So they just lack a lot of "common knowledge".

    Don't be so harsh, my Dad is a physicist and can't understand why others don't know the basic principals of quantum mechanics or string theory because to him THAT STUFF is common knowledge.

    She delt with the cold and has been forgiven...

    I certainly agree with that, it's pretty amazing what isn't common knowledge.

    I think it was Einstein who said that culture is what remains after you forgot all that you have learned.

    In the case of these people knowing only what they were taught, I think it can be said that even if they knew much more they would remain ignorant.

    Being cultivated, just like being ignorant, is a mindset.

    I was at a workshop last night where a psychiatrist was speaking on issues respecting capacity assessments for the elderly and the mentally infirm. One of the tests she was discussing required patients to draw a picture of a round clock face. I immediately thought of my nieces who, when they were pre-teen struggled to read the time from anything other than a digital clock.

    They are now older, either university graduates or university students, and very competent in all sorts of ways, but I wonder if they would be challenged by the psychiatrist's test.
