It Pays to Read the Internet

You learn something new every day:

When I was young, I wanted to grow up to be like Scott McLemee; unfortunately I didn't know of Scott McLemee, or else I would have understood that he lives in a state of grace.
I have no idea what this means. Chances are, benightedness is an aspect of my bliss.

Another way of putting this is that in many important matters I am always the last to know.
