Republicans tried to show that their vision of education could work. Instead, it just blew up in their faces.

Had a really nice moment at work today.

I'm not a programmer, I know the very basics at best. Today in a meeting I didn't need to be in one of the managers was talking about a problem that our product has and a way they wanted to fix it. The solution they were discussing was basically the equivalent of building Fort Knox to protect a safe deposit box whose key was stolen. Now I don't know a lot about metaphorical forts or keys but a much more simple solution came to mind immediately. I turned to one of the senior techs and said "why don't we just change the lock?" I was expecting him to explain how that wasn't possible or practical but instead he said, "Yeah that's what I was thinking too."

It made me feel really smart.

Not bragging, just sharing.

Hanging out with a lot of smart, subject matter experts, I find that a lot of the time they over complicate things and miss the really simple solutions to problems. Much like how adults can make social relationships complicated but then some kid comes in and suggests a really simple solution. Sometimes not fully understand a subject can allow someone to give the best advice. At the very least it can help spark an idea while you are explaining to them why their idea won't work.
