. The thing that caught my mind was the High School sports T-Shirts. One time I was out and wearing my Science
Swimming T-Shirt. Someone stopped me and said, "Ha, I get it. There's no science in swimming." Setting aside from the incredible level of science involved in modern competitive swimming, I simply stared blankly at them and said, "No, it's not ironic. I went to Bronx Science and was on the Swim Team."
Dead end of Western Civilization, indeed.
