Tim Ferriss Birthday Celebration.

I went to school with Tim Ferriss, but I only met him my last semester. Which sucked because we had tons in common. If you've been under a rock and don't know who Tim is he's a potato-headed guy with a few best-sellers under his belt but much more importantly he's a teacher. Well teacher doesn't describe him and I don't want to call him a master (which he is) but let's say one of the things we both had and have in common is a love of Bruce Lee's philosophy of life. For Bruce, all knowledge was self-knowledge because real knowledge reveals yourself and really life then becomes an honest expression of yourself. So he's a master in that sense.

Today is his birthday. He has invited us to do something extraordinary by joining him in providing potable waters to communities without any. Check him out at his site:

And here is my quote on education he required then got blocked from posting on his site so here:

To me education means... hmm... hold on I'm sure I know the answer to this. Why is there a test? :P Education means to me self-knowledge, revealing one's own limitations and leaving them behind, gaining knowledge, losing limitations.
