An engaging article about "The Knowledge", the impressively perfect name given to the test for becoming a cab driver in London.

An almost Borgesian (in content if not in diction) quote:

Which is where the Knowledge comes in. It is a weird city’s weird solution to the riddle of itself, a municipal training program whose graduates are both transit workers and Gnostics: chauffeurs taught by the government to know the unknowable.


I want to write fic about this, but at the same time it's just so beautiful a concept on its own that I don't know if that wouldn't be overkill.
