    Re: What is the point of High School?

    I agree. It would be better to teach young minds to enquire, and to impart the discipline needed to become self-motivating.

    Re: What is the point of High School?

    biggest beef I had with high school is that over two-thirds of what they taught you had nothing to do with the real world.....
    back in college, I heard of one taffer who was an obvious victim of that.... he could do a partial tensor integration in his head... but was totally clueless as to how to balance a checkbook..... (even fifth grade was more profitable... in that, I learned how to fill out a tax return.)
    I just dont see any profit in filling one's head with useless theories.... and I think boys should be allowed to take Home Eco.. especially with the "obesity epidemic" going on... if the staff doesn't let boys learn how to make reasonably healthy meals.. then they are aiding and abetting the epidemic by forcing our male youth to subsist on a diet of bugers, pizza and takeout Chinese... and if you ask me, if that isn't a "Crime against Civilization".. I don't know what is....

    If you are wanting to be with a woman, go for a trip to South East Asia/Latin America etc. and you'll find that they will be more receptive towards you than the girls you are around. It is funny how two Australian's will randomly talk with each other for a couple of hours overseas, yet wouldn't even say hello in Australia. Don't marry them but you will see that the West is damaged on the social front, not yourself.
    Relax and dont worry it wont happen .
