Thats what i meant "time to waste" not wasted time. Its a matter of priorities and motivation for the various priorities. Work, family and home projects leaves little time... doesnt make a person "stupid". I can even imagine in the case of college where ones study load could be great enough and then they might be working some and trying to have a social life. So now they didnt study up on their latin and "such a language itself would act as a litmus test to one's ability to engage in such discourse"
