Salvador Dali's Melting Clocks

Salvador Dali Melting clocks are not a problem in my reality. I am an unschooler. I will tolerate a textbook, but only as a last resort. Mud is my friend. I prefer hands-on everything. If I had an anthem, it might be Don’t Worry, Be Happy.

Why should textbooks be a last resort? My grandfather was fond of saying "Never pass up the opportunity to acquire useful or interesting knowledge", and sometimes you find interesting tidbits of knowledge in textbooks.

Besides, it can be interesting to reflect on the social imagery and mindset behind the writing of the textbook. "What were the views of the people who wrote this?", "Why do they believe this?", etc...

True enough, but for actual practical knowledge, I find it much more expeditious to just do the damn thing, instead of reading a canned academian's version.

I learned trigonometry that way, so if that's not good enough...
