A Smart Human Being

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Specialization is for insects.

Robert Heinlein, The Notebooks of Lazarus Long

Well, dont let me out of ur sight...im just a girl...just pretty n petit... so dont let me have any rights... IVE HAD IT UP TO HERE!!!..."~No Doubt~ Well, that is a classic. It may have nothing to do with this article, but at least we all know that I agree with it...well, both of them... People should be made into 'renaissance' men and women! I believe specialties are nice and all, but a waste. I also believe that people are more than they appear to be (I dont like sterotypes or profiling!). Apparently, they are more complex than anyone thinks! Come on! At least I am... I think...
