Who built the academies for the academics to be so wise within if they hadn't yet get around to inventing the disciplines to enable the cave dwellers to build them?

Academics existed before academies, the Ancient Greeks used to teach in the open air.

I love a good old moan about academics. University of life, in the real world etc. etc.

That's because they had upset the artisans, who had downed tools. Then they had to teach in the open air because didn't know how to build a roof for themselves.

Good for them. At what point in human history did academics come into existence - presumably they had to spend some time living outside the caves before the rest of the population followed?

I don't recall claiming that builders are bunch of wasters.

Just determining whether academics are really the reason people don't as a rule live in caves any more.

I once received a sickness self-certification form from a school employee stating that she was off with a sore trout.

Sounds a bit fishy.
