What's Little Red Riding Hood got to do with it?

Did you know that Little Red Riding Hood's first name was likely Blanchette? I didn't know that. I assumed it was "Little." Although a few sources confirm this, I can't really prove it and that is precisely my point. How much do we really know about what we think we really know?

Socrates said, "The only real wisdom is knowing you know nothing."

The older I get, I wonder sometimes, why do I know less and less? Shouldn't I have the answers for everything by now instead of more questions? I just don't know what I know anymore. Can anyone ever know anything with absolute certainty?

I guess there are a few things I still know with all my heart and soul.
  1. Poutine should not be consumed by humans.
  2. Poutine is delicious.
Drat! Yet again, I've established I know nothing.

2. Young & foolish people think they know it all. Then we get older and give in to the realization that we do not now, nor will we ever know anything.

On some level you might say there is a direct connection between what you perceive and what you know. Improve your perceptions and thereby improve your knowledge.
