This is a question Ignorance

I once was in a programming class where the task was "build a calculator". A student did one with buttons 1, 2, 3 all the way up to about 25 and then ran out of space on the screen. We've asked this before but liked it so much we're asking again: What's the best example of ignorance you've encountered?

Only a short one
More of a link actually, I'm at work so time is short...


I hate to throw my hat in with the "daft Americans" posts, but come on!

"Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority."

The mind boggles, it truly does :-/

I used to read that site for giggles but I found that more often than not it was making me genuinely angry.

Quite right.
A populace imbued with the deadly skill of critical thinking might well not accept my benevolent (yet iron-fisted) dictatorship, once I eventually sieze power. If possible, I'd like to avoid the need for roving death squads.
