Comic #4498

1 Eleven: What are we doing here?
1 Mike: Learning long division.
1 Eleven: Why?
2 Mike: Because when we grow up we’re not always going to have a calculator handy.
3 Eleven: You realise that given the rate of technological advancement, we’ll all have pocket computers that can access all of the world’s knowledge?
4 Mike: Wow. I bet in the future everyone will be really well-informed, and nobody will ever act stupid out of ignorance!

I originally wrote Mike's first line as "Learning mathematics", but on reflection I changed it to long division, because mathematics in general is actually used a lot in everyday adult life, in contrast to long division specifically. I can't remember the last time I had to do long division - it may well have been at school. I still know how to do it though.
