not too big a word.......
it means self taught.
i find that my best and most meaningful education has been on my own without the traditional schoolroom/teacher modality.
i don`t know why this is but probably because i can`t sit still for extended periods of time and get bored shitless by monotone voices and content-free lectures.
i read most of my text books in the first few days of class.
my most meaningful education is ongoing and with the help of friends, neigbours, business associates, clients and you guys........
there is an intellectual snobbery surrounding a formal education that dictates that the only knowledge is gained at the degree level and beyond.
this attitude makes me love to play with people like that who are so overbought in thier stuff that they can`t exert any flexibility over thier own dogma.
though she is very pretty when she smiles.........
