"Educated:" You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

“Educated” is a word that is being used, more and more, to describe a personal quality that would be more fairly and accurately called “predictable.” Listen carefully to how it is used; that’s what they mean. You can be as stupid and uneducated as you want, but if you say all the right things and have all the right opinions you’re “educated.” -- House of Eratosthenes
