You ain't no Casanova



A crazy person on the L train mumbled the following statement to another rider, and I was lucky enough to overhear:
Man, you gots to learn yo' math-a-matics, 'cuz you ain't no Casanova.
Words of wisdom, to be sure. In fact, later that evening, in his address to the joint session of Congress, Obama said:
And so tonight, I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training... dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It’s not just quitting on yourself, it’s quitting on your country – and this country needs and values the talents of every American.
It's basically two different approaches to saying the same thing. That's right, America -- you ain't no Casanova.

casa = house
nova = star

so, Casanova apparently lusted for the house of stars in over 122 women. i can see the translation. i can do the math.
