It is very important to say 'I don't know' and to practice not knowing. Academia demands that we be experts, and if we stumble at all then we are punished for it. We are not allowed to have partial knowledge or ongoing knowledge.
But that's toxic. It's okay and good to not know things - even things in your own field.
The beauty of it all is that we will never fully know anything. We can only ever learn more.

Love this post.
Things you can do instead of watching YouTube videos:
- Work on that creative project you've had in your head for a while
- Read that book you've been wanting to start/finish
- Look up (on duckduckgo) information about something you're curious to learn about
- Dance to some music
- Make a tik tok video
Oh god, I'm jumping between instances and checking their hashtags for people who might still be posting about netrunner. Why am I so focused right now?
I recently got into #netrunner again, spending hours making decks, buying-up my brother's cards from him.
Somebody stop me (nobody stop me).
Pronouncing acronyms, TAATR
Have to say, I disagree with @mike when he uses the hard G in "graphical" to argue for a hard G in GIF.
In "LASER", the S for "stimulated" isn't a hard S. In "SCUBA", the U for "underwater" isn't a short U. I think people tend to just look at the pile of letters and let their intuition guide them.
Anyway, have a great day and #Zhaif4Laif.
AATR, Constitutional Law, Podcast Reccomendation
If anyone really liked the back half of the "Donuts" episode, there's a great podcast called "What Trump Can Teach Us About Con Law" where Roman Mars talks to his neighbor (who happens to be a professor in constitutional law) about all the ways this president is doing weird new (dumb) things that push at the edge cases of our constitutional system.
I highly recommend it.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien Podcast, and other things The Liturgists create.
