At a party, I argue with a woman. She is agitated because she read that children in Sweden have such fine motor disorders that they cannot even sharpen a pencil.
“Whether it’s good or bad to be able to sharpen a pencil depends entirely on the point of view”, I say, and she doesn’t understand me.
I can’t carve arrowheads any more and if I had to, I’d be terribly bad at it.
And any hunter and gatherer would ask if he saw this: What kind of stupid monkey is that?
