I was soaking in a hot bath and reading a book when my wife stormed in screaming, "Don't you want to do anything?"\
"I'm doing something. Something I enjoy. What did you have in mind?"
"Well, wouldn't you rather go to the mall?"

A man at work wanted to know why, when he brought up an issue, I knew about the issue and research that had been done and projects that had been tried in other places. I explained that I read. He responded that I was "cheating".

I tested everyone who worked for me and discovered that almost 25% were functionally illiterate. They'd all finished high school, many had some college or were in college, and two had college degrees. We did a reading improvement class and everyone who took the class improved. We discovered two employees with forms of dyslexia who had gone through 12+ years of school without anyone noticing.

If the schools taught sex the way they teach reading, by the time the kids reached puberty they wouldn't want to do it.
