Spock, Simone Biles, Picard discussed on Overthrowing Education


We could go on. But right now, I think it's time to play the 5 minute game show. It's time for the 5 minute game show. Oh, okay. You ready? Yeah, I'm ready. Okay, so you, I know, love gymnastics. And clearly connect with Star Trek. Yes. And our very passionate about education. So this game show is called balance beam me up, Scotty. Okay. Okay, so this particular kind of game is like this that or the other. So I'm going to read you a quote. Okay. And you have to tell me if it came from Star Trek. If it came from a gymnast, or if it came from an educational genius, I don't know how to say it. And after that, you can get an extra 5 or ten completely meaningless points if you can tell me who actually said it. Okay? It's all meaningless. But you are playing for an overthrowing education mug. Oh, okay. All right, stakes are high. Okay, here's the first one. Things are only impossible until they are not. Star Trek gymnast education. I know it's starting to look. You're right. It is Star Trek. You remember he said it, which one? It's either Spock or oh, it could be Picard. It's because it was, okay. So don't say Spock. It was a good job. Okay. We can push ourselves further. We always have more to give. I don't think it's from star trek. Gosh, I'll just tell you. Okay, go. It was Simone Biles. Oh, was it? Okay. For anybody who hasn't been around the last few years. Yes. Well, I've seen her, but I have not read her if she's written a book. I have not read it. Well, no, these are just quotes. Okay. Okay. The next one. The only person you're truly competing against is yourself. I think it's Star Trek. It is Star Trek. You're right. I'm trying to think who it is. Yeah, I'm going to say James Kirk. No, that was actually Picard as well. It was oh, okay. I did like next generation. I must have met, yep. Okay. All right. To find out what one is fitted to do and to secure an opportunity to do it is the key to happiness. It's not a gymnastic. So don't hear of a lot about happiness from gymnasts, unfortunately. That's Spock. No, it's actually John Dewey. My favorite early educators. Okay, yeah, there's a lot of John Dewey coats. I must have been, yep. Yeah. One of my favorites, yeah. So by the way, just a similar quote was from Mary Lou Retton. She says, each of us have fire in our hearts for something, it's our goal in life to find it and keep it lit. That's like version of it, which is nice. Good for her. Do you like that? Okay. I'm not sure I'm getting the mug, but that's okay. Oh, everybody gets a mug. Everybody's a winner on. We're drawing education as long as we're continuing to overthrow education. Okay, here's the next one.
