RTFA. The blog post goes into some brief detail; but, you know exactly what it’s all about.
I wasn’t kidding when I started this personal blog and noted in “What this blog is all about” that people generally stop learning anything new at the age of 26. Beaucoup scientific studies have confirmed that statement. Google some scientific sources if that gives you a problem.

A useless Congress controlled by clowns less productive than their predecessors.
