    Default The Knowledge

    The examination to become a London cabby is possibly the most difficult test in the world — demanding years of study to memorize the labyrinthine city’s 25,000 streets and any business or landmark on them. As GPS and Uber imperil this tradition, is there an argument for learning as an end in itself?

    In Chicago, I'm shocked when I find a cabbie who speaks understandable English and doesn't smell like he just had sex with a goat .
