why do we choose to be uneducated? I don't mean just college.. i mean about things we can research ourselves, things that we should all know about life, diseases, abuse..etc.. why CHOOSE to not know as much as we all possibly can?

 Not sure who you are talking about.

I reasearch everything that comes across my path that I want to know more about.  It just makes me feel better to exercise my brain.

Good post

 Can you give an example? We aren't all experts in everything.. that's why there are sites like this one. What is it that's annoyed you?

i said im not talking about just college.

I'm talking about life in general.. things that go on, things that effect us all.  the job market has nothing to do with that.

I learned alot of life's lessons slightly after hitting puberty. As for research and so forth. If I don't know it than it gets researched. sticking out tongue Nah just kidding with the sweetpea. I have to make myself laugh sometimes.

Of course it does. If you were always educating yourself wouldn't you hold a great job? You mentioned disease...and why people don;t knwo as much as they can....so are you studing medicine?

well its not that its annoyed me.. i just dont get it.

i try to research everything and anything i can.

but like today the AIDS post. so many people thought it could be given through saliva.. and thats just not true. i like to be educated about AIDS and other STDS for myself, friends, family and my children in the future. thats an example of a "life" thing im talking about.
