trees like these are the best to sit under and read books or draw or just relax and be alone

or you can climb it and sit up in the foliage waiting for unsuspecting pedestrians to walk by so you can swing down on one of the roots with a Tarzan scream and kick them in the face before running from the traffic cops

DATING TIP: Hold the door for your date. Rip the door off its hinges. Use the door as a weapon to fight off other men. Establish dominance.

`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.

A+- 97-100
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
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?

100-70: A

69-60: B

59-50: C

49-40: D

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”

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 is so true. I’m a senior now, but last year, for the first time in my life I got 3 89%s on my report card. I had been getting above 93s for 3 straight years. After those Bs, my GPA, which was a 4.3 went down to 4.18, and my class rank went from 16 of 700 to 29th. And I was grounded for 2 weeks because I “wasn’t trying hard enough”

my mom once told me that writing your feelings down or drawing them out is very therapeutic and relaxing

they were hiding their identities as superheros not making a statement

One of the reasons your tuition is high and classes are getting cut.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

fact checked and…apparently this is completely correct.

And people wonder and complain when I am “down” on sports.

I’m gonna say this every time I see a post like this

University sports programs pay for themselves through ticket sales, advertising, and the like, usually with TONS of change left over. They are not raising the cost of your tuition, they’re bringing it down. Why do you think universities in power conferences have lower tuition?

Like, I can see why you might look at these numbers and think this means everyone’s money is coming from the same pool, but it’s not. All that money you see coaches getting paid is coming straight from their own program, and what isn’t paid to them or their staff goes back to the university.
