They must have run this for a couple years, as it is one of my first memories and I don't think it is scientifically possible for me to remember it form 1971. I was so happy to have found it again a few years ago on Youtube.

This is from one of my favorite thinkers: Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The gist of the video is the difference between knowledge and thinking. I think this underscores one of the major problems with our current educational system. People are given facts and not taught how to use them creatively.
This is not just a problem in our primary and secondary schools, it extends to our colleges and universities. I find this sad because college is where a person should be learning how to think.
