@The Eye of the Hawk, I took several classes mandatory for my degree that were really BS, like freshman orientation/study skills, a personal health class, and even a few history classes. There was no real challenge to them and the teachers read from the power points that they provided print outs of, a few had open book/note or online tests. Even a few of my more challenging classes like calculus and A&P had their lecture days where i could have more of less slept through the class. (Heck, I played Sims through my chemistry classes and made B’s). Not all college lectures are worth the attendance time just because they are college lectures or because you are paying thousands for them. I could have taken my world history final on the first day and passed the class, but then I wouldn’t have gotten the three social science credits I needed toward my degree (I needed 9 total credits in social sciences that is three classes, and about $5500 at my college). on Funny Pics (Upvotes: 23)
We own a half dozen, most of them are in my kitchen window, but there is also one on my dining room table and a few in the living room windows. They are really awesome, we don’t have problems with sugar ants in the summer when we have a few hanging around. Ours are called Snappy, Snappington, Snip, Snap, Lord of the Flies, and Snapadoodle-Doo, my 10 year old is in charge of watering them and rotating their placement. You have to break off their heads when they turn brown, and then they grow new ones, like Hydra (okay, they don’t grow back two for every one, but...) on Funny Pics (Upvotes: 22)
@Ima6pack, they have stopped teaching cursive because teachers don't have time to teach it because they have to make sure every single student in their classroom is prepared to take the end-of-year Standards of Learning (yup, that's right, our tests are called the SOLs). Great you want every student to know these things, meanwhile my child is sitting in the classroom bored out of her mind while you review addition to 10 for the 100th time. All the time spent teaching other kids who just don't want to learn the same thing over and over is cutting into what you could teach the kids who are learning. ::end rant:: on Funny Pics (Upvotes: 34)
@Rapunzel, don't you mean when Mother Gothel brushes your hair? And when did we get a cat? How did you get a cat? Did you leave the tower? on O (Upvotes: 18)
