I found out recently that a bloke I know is currently spending some time at Harvard getting a degree or diploma in something or other.

Now this bloke was never the sharpest chisel in the toolbox. He's obviously worked hard over the last decade or two, and has climbed the corporate ladder quite successfully. Which is odd, as he was never that hard working when I first met him. But he always had plans... and dreams. Big dreams.

Anyway, I thought you had to be ultra-bright to get a place at Harvard. I guess I was wrong, or standards have slipped. I'm not trying to put him down, but I just never though that he was in that league.

Another illusion shattered. I wonder if I have any left?
