LOL, what a fun list!

Let's see...

When you didn't learn geography, logic, world history, and Latin when you yourself were in school but you've mastered the subjects as an adult.

When you have a nightmare about public school officials and social workers trying to convince you to put your kid in school and you wake up thinking, "Let's see... They used ad hominem, red herring, slippery slope, loaded question, straw man, proof by lack of evidence, genesis fallacy..."
