It's true, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty doesn't understand sarcasm.

A successful university career reminds me of the old roman saying of those who cannot do teach.
And you cannot teach so you must be a genius.. NOT.

You remind me that some can neither DO nor TEACH.

Actually I have done both. I have taught while I was in the Navy.

On the other hand you have experience in both not being able to do and not being able to teach. But you are an experienced at insulting others.

Or you stood up before a class and had the impression you were teaching someting. The defining test of a teacher is that they not only know the subject but can impart it to those who don't.

You don't seem to know anything TO teach. And there is no evidence you can 'educate' any other poster here. Your arguments and logic a not 'teaching material'.

That's beyond your imagination, isn't it?

But you don't know for sure, do you, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?

One can only hope that nobody ever takes your word for anything!

Your right. Some are already well educated on the subject so I have nothing new to teach them. The others like you are steadfast about learning something new and one cannot teach to the closed mind. But there are others who occasionally appear who are not in either camp and those I can educate. To those my arguements and logic are teaching material. Not to mention the people like yourself make wonderful examples to those people.
