was this not my high school experience in white liberal san francisco
Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale:
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
F- 59 and under
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
#is that true?
Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.
And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.
I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day
File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.
this game is bullshit, you have to go through a tutorial until level 18, and your stats start to go down after level 30 not to mention the romance mini-game is hard as fuck
sadly the PVP is a lie. You get a debuff called jail
it also fails to mention that once you hit level 18 it actually does have a monthly fee and it’s really fucking steep. but at that point everyone’s too invested to quit playing so ugh yeah
I don’t even get to choose anything about the initial details of my character.
Pff the graphics really suck, I needed to get a third party program just to make everything focus.
If the character they give you isn’t the right gender, the patch is expensive as hell and takes forever to install
I thought I was really good at this game, but there are millions of people better at it than I am. ::::/
I died ONCE and they closed my fucking account what the hell
All the travel takes for fucking ever too. They desperately need to patch in some sort of teleport system.
Don’t even get me started on how boring the endgame is.
everyone in the game keeps arguing over whether or not there’s an admin or not and its really annoying
Don’t get me started on the bartering system! Also, who put the crappy players in charge of the countries waging so many player characters’ lives?
Is there anyone else who watches both Orange is the New Black and Leverage who wants to read my fanfiction where A. they have to infiltrate the prison and Elliot gains Red’s trust by catching and presenting her with The Chicken or B. Elliot and Red face off on a cooking show?
It is the year after the Battle of Hogwarts. School is starting again. And the thestrals are confused by all of the attention they are getting.
the person pretended to be a goat so the goat pretended to be a person

Confession time: I don’t care if feminism benefits men.
Sure, I believe the goals of feminism ultimately will make the world a better place for both men and women. But if feminism makes the world a better place for all women and does nothing to change men’s lot one way or the other, I will consider it a rousing success. Period, full stop.
Like imagine this. You have ten people in a room, five men and five women. Each man has two slices of pizza. Each woman has one slice of pizza.
A feminist pizza fairy person notices the problem, comes in and gives an extra slice of pizza to each of the women. The women have more pizza than they had before. The men have the same amount of pizza.
The feminist pizza fairy has done nothing to improve the situation of the men in the room (except indirectly insofar as they will probably have a nicer, more harmonious lunchtime now that the women won’t all be hangry and resentful.)
If you are the man complaining about why the feminist pizza fairy only gave more pizza to the women, I don’t want to fucking hear from you.
IS BEING HYDRATED REALLY WORTH ALL THIS PEEING?
This literally is the central question of my existence.
