Quotes of the day

“School threatens to extinguish the interest and curiosity that the child had discovered outside its walls.” — Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, psychologist.  This one makes me want to take a sledgehammer to the current structure of western education.

And this…. well this is just hilarious:

“Before coffee and tea were widely available, the European breakfast drink of choice had been beer, so the psychological contrast was especially dramatic.” — Jonah Lehrer. Yeah, forget stimulants and Wheaties, nothing like a tall glass of warm beer to get you jazzercised for a productive day.
