About the troubling state of lack of curiosity: In a world where everything is worth knowing, nothing is

According to students enrolled in professor Michael Rosenthal's Philosophy 101 course at Dartmouth University, that guy, Darrin Floen, the one who sits at the back of the class and acts like he's Aristotle, seriously needs to shut up

the fellow who sits at the back of the philosophy class and acts like he's Aristotle reminds me of a story told about sidney morgenbesser in which a professor of linguistic philosophy, during a lecture, stated that a double negative has a positive meaning in some languages and a very negative meaning in others. he then went on to observe that in no language does a double positive have a negative meaning, at which point good old sidney, sitting floenlike at the back, piped up with a jeering 'yeah yeah...'
