Sam said it best

Sam Cooke summed it up almost 50 years ago with his song “Wonderful World.”

“Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the French I took … “

Well, I know a little history and I know how to read a science book. But I never took French and I don’t really know that much biology (with the exception of mammalian reproduction).

I wish I knew a little more science this week as yet another tech writing project is kicking my ass. I look back at high school and college and wish I would have learned more science, along with more math, meteorology, more Spanish, et cetera. Sometimes I wish I had applied myself more to my studies instead of the studious pursuit of the party universe.

But alas, I cannot turn back the hand of time. For if I did — I probably would just piss it away having a good time again. Why change a winning formula?
