I've lurked here for a long time, but some things I can't pass up...
Have you never met anyone that just "couldn't" learn something? I'm a good example, after college degrees and 20 years of teaching, I still cna't spell worth beans. And multiplication tables... My wife, who is also a teacher, could never remember 7 times 8. To this day, she still multiplies 7 time 4 and doubles the answer.
Please don't tell me that anyone who can't do something just doesn't try.
