Woefully Ignorant

On the ‘net, everyone’s an expert at everything. Everyone has an opinion, even on matters about which they know nothing.

I’m here to admit that I don’t know everything. In fact, there are some things that I really, really should know more about and don’t. But I plan on fixing that. Because I don’t like being ignorant.

Here’s a list of certain things I should be well-versed in, but am not:

– The founding of our country and specifically, the people behind it
– Lawn care/gardening
– Car care
– Simple sewing/mending
May 1968
– Polish history

How about you? What are the gaps in your knowledge? What do you intend to do about it?

Wait, this is like the Ping that explained why I can’t audition for Jeopardy! I plan to do nothing to increase my knowledge of mythology, Shakespeare, and any country south of Mexico.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
