    There’s a catch 22. I wonder how many people are pissed they were taught things they had no interest in. Math, biology, history, etc.

    Imagine being a kid today where the three Rs are so neglected and the teachers know less than the high school students did in the 1980s.

    There’s no ignorance like stubborn ignorance.

    The subjects I disliked the most I now find fascinating.

    Our teachers do not even use proper grammar, much less correct students. I once saw a TV news story, interviewing a school principal. She actually said, “I seen……”

    @thebird55: That reminds me: When my sister was a teacher, she walked past a classroom where she heard a teacher referring to “World War Eleven,” when the teacher really meant, World War II.

    I still don’t find math fascinating…

    Where ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise

    You just made me think of a trick I learned in sixth grade.


    Have someone write down a 4 digit number. Example: 3581. Subtract 2 from it, and paste it on the front. Result: 23579. Write this number down, off to the side. Now have the person write down another 4 digit number, directly under the first one (so they be added together later). Let’s say they write 4729. Under that, you write down digits that equal 9 when added to the digit above. In this example: 5270. Have them write one more number under that, and you repeat the process. If you add all the four digit numbers together, you will now get the five digit number that you wrote off to the side.

    I was a math whiz when I was a kid, and didn’t really care for other subjects. Inevitably, English and writing ended up becoming my forte.

    My cousin Jim has a college degree and he’s still ignorant. A strong enough will can do it, Calvin. Just ignore anything you don’t want to accept.

    Not all people can know the same things! In this days people are considered to be ignorant, when they are not so good in computering, but no one is considered to be ignorant, when he is not able to play the piano! This is hard work too, and you must train hours and hours to be able to play it well!!

    My house mate has a good job as a nurse in a hospital ICU. That means he also has has a certain level of education. He has been “successful” in life. The boy is as dumb as a stump. I, on the other hand, am somewhat intelligent, know a lot of things about many subjects, ……and have a life that has gone nowhere. So which of us is really the intelligent one?

    Don’t confuse intelligence with competence.


    Also don’t confuse intelligence with perseverence … many successful people are not necessarily intelligent but work very hard in one specific area to reach their success.
