This letter to philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer from his mum is the ultimate parental burn

Burn of the week – that week being the first week in November 1807 – is this letter sent by author Johanna Schopenhauer to her son, German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer.

‘Schopenhauer’s mom just absolutely letting him hear it,’ said @doltery over on Twitter.

Goes out to parents homeschooling their kids everywhere (bit harsh? Yes, probably).
