Everyone can benefit from an improved vocabulary. You can try an introductory level of Arvin's Vocabulary Synapse for free. It is an interactive process that uses interconnections between words to rapidly develop an advanced vocabulary. Arvin explains how it works.

If time permits, we will delve into the political ramifications of education. Is there a political agenda behind the dumbing down of America? What are teachers' unions doing to education? Maybe the movie Idiocracy is a fictional glimpse into the direction we are heading.

Here is an actual personal ad from Craigslist:

"I graduate from college soon and do have a good head on my shoulders.I will not play games.
you are not a checker board and there is no reason for them. I smoke.drink. no drugs.
Im looking for sum1 that I can just be my odd, goofy, cynical self with without having to worry
about them putting on a front to impress or undress me. If you would like to speak than speak.."

The Idiocracy is already here. I rest my case.
