Life is an Open Book Test

This really goes for any information. Likely it doesn't as long as you have ways to get to that information. For example, Google-411 or Google Info. I believe this extends to lots of information. While the knowledge of state capitals might be valuable for future trivia, I would ask whether knowing this information is better or would it be better for him to know how to quickly look that information up (along with all sorts of other information about the state).
