In case you are studying for the GRE - Are we not men?
In case you are studying for the GRE
Here are some words you may not be aware of:

1.) Diphthong - it's two letters together like OY or something
2.) Chela - a pincer or claw on a crustacean or arachnid
3.) Scoria - rough vesicular lava rocks
4.) Endocrine - having to do with secreting into the bloodstream
5.) Coprolite - fossilized doo
6.) Machinations - evil schemes designed to accomplish a goal

Here are some fallacies:
1.) 2 + 2 is always 4. Not in base 3. It's 11.
2.) The Great Wall of China is the only man-made structure visible from space. There are no man-made structures visible from space by the naked eye. People on the moon could not see the Great Wall. They can now, with remote sensing equipment, but that doesn't matter because no one is on the moon.
3.) Dolphins are the only creatures other than humans who have sex for pleasure. Have you ever heard of a Bonobo? It's a type of ape. They like to fuck, all the time, anybody they know. Sex is like a handshake to them. I'd call that "for pleasure".
4.) Chimps, gorillas, and orangutans are monkeys. NO!! They are apes! Apes are NOT monkeys! Neither are Lemurs! Baboons, baboons are monkeys. Gibbons are apes, too.

I think that's all the knowledge I care to purge at this time. I'm sure there will be more later.

I s'pose I'll count my blessings being a college dropout. hehehe

Maybe it's college dropouts that have more business fu, cuz we didn't waste our potential slaving away for The Academic Man!

I'm going to take the GRE back for the black man!

Bonobos are cool. And evidently they are pretty smart, too. I saw a tv show about this weird lady who teaches them to do all kinds of things. I posted about it here
