When faced with a choice, my friend Kurt and I like to ask ourselves, “What would the Babe do?” The Babe, as in, Babe Ruth.
I came across this video on Youtube and it has convinced me I am doing exactly what the Babe would do. Note how kids in the 1920s learned math because it’s, sadly, almost exactly how Thai kids are taught English by Thai teachers.
What would the Babe do? Pull the kids out of boring classes and play baseball.
