Tag Day: Point of Know Return

There has not been enough foreign exchange of democracy and ideas between my site and others recently, most likely because of the recent discovery that some of them are un-American, so I want to rectify this situation by making up a tag. To effectively achieve geographical diversity and the diaspora of BU-related themes and paraphernalia across the World Wide Web, I will be tagging the following four kids: Kim , Anna , Mark , and Brianne . Notice that today's tag is brought to you by the number four.

Four Things I Know

  1. I know how to make a tasty Beef Stroganoff.
  2. I know how to navigate to anywhere in the real Alexandria (not the fake Fairfaxy one).
  3. I know all the plot holes in the movie, Memento.
  4. I know the best ways to consistently lose at poker.

Four Things I Used to Know

  1. I used to know how to do advanced calculus and differential equations.
  2. I used to know the locations of all the Heart Pieces in Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past.
  3. I used to know the complete set of commands a coxswain gives his oarsmen to get a boat out of a rack and onto the water.
  4. I used to know the story arcs for every season of Friends.

Four Things I Want to Know

  1. I want to know how to speak Spanish so I can speak to one or more neighbours.
  2. I want to know how to write a legal will (and am doing so now).
  3. I want to know how to program in another language besides Java.
  4. I want to know the formula that sets the ratio of useless commercials to good TV in hour long dramas.

Four Things I Don't Know and Don't Care About

  1. I don't know the correct way to swing a golf club, unless I am using it to fend off home intruders.
  2. I don't know what you learn when you get an M.B.A.
  3. I don't know what's happened in the last eighty seasons of American Idol.
  4. I don't know who to root for in professional basketball.

Are you diligently working on your answers for the Name That Tune contest? The deadline is Wednesday at noon EST!
