Okay maybe I'm just a crusty old fart but damn I can't help but wonder if this isn't a product of our broken education system.

What's so wrong about "teach me about" or "please explain" or any number of similar expressions?

"Learn me" sounds like something an uneducated hick would say.

Damn! Red Face Mad Eek Frown Confused

"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Use of proper grammar has gone out the window. Not long ago you could generally count on the media to have proper verb subject agreement. Not anymore. Civility, dress and courtesy have become somewhat rare. It is not the educational system, it is parents and society as a whole that are responsible.

Typical for an engineer. All my life I wanted to be an engineer, now I are one.

It all began many years ago with Engineers telling us that Pie is square. When we all know that a Pie is round - cake is square.
