      There’s a lot of nuance in science that is ignored at non-upper-level university courses. We teach models that work for most cases, and each level deeper simply “lies” a little less, if that’s how we choose to describe what’s being taught. For 99.9% of uses, the simplest models are sufficient.

        My point is that I don’t understand the meme unless it’s saying teachers are lying. Not much nuance in that.

        Upon a second viewing, it makes sense that whoever did not make their point clear also spelled the word “teacher” wrong.

          Ah, yes. I can’t speak to the intent of the meme. Not that you specifically asked me, personally, in the first place. Sorry, I’m of no help there, but if I were to guess, I’d say it’s a Jerry Seinfeld “what’s up with that” attempt at humor.

          Regarding the spelling, well now, that’s just equal parts hilarious and sad.

          also spelled the word “teacher” wrong

          Hum, the meme could easily be about relatives of famous UK prime ministers.
