>>7644656 >>7644614 The point of learning these things is the thinking behind it. If you can't do it, then you are retarded. So even if I teach you basic finance/taxes you would still fail because you do not know how to think. Trust me, the education system know this, and they don't teach you because you're too stupid. You would complain and still make the same mistakes as the financial illiterates. Education is not the problem, people are the problem. You can't teach stupid people
>>7644614 >I'm failing ap physics lolz i got 11 points out of 55 on my last test :D
>Mfw this video is fucking real >Mfw people people in comment section exist >Mfw I read my entire physics textbook, math textbook, and History textbook in 2 months during school while keeping up with my other classes.
Shit actually made me legitimately sad in the beginning when I though he was legit. Then he said "I'm smart. I'm just going to say it" and I died inside a little bit.
>>7644656 Reminds me of that stupid 4 panel thing about some fucks in a math class who doesn't get imaginary numbers, then blames the school system why they aren't teaching them how to balance a checkbook
>>7644825 That person is retarded. Balancing a checkbook is easy. If you need to be taught how to do it, then you are a lost cause. People blame someone else for their mistakes. Quite common with stupid people.
>>7644864 Its not Tyrone. Its Cletus, Billy Bob, Tyrone, Juan, Lupe, Tanshisha, whatever redneck name for a girl. They all complain either way. They have no self-control, nor any thinking capacity. The current education system works. The problem is the people. The teachers are shit, and the students are entitled shitlords. I know I've made mistakes in my schooling and that's my fault. I'm correcting those mistakes, and suffering those consequences. But at least I know its my fault.
>>7644705 Knowing how to solve PDEs is pretty important for lots of things in real life. Just because most people are semiliterate savages who do nothing useful doesn't mean there are no activities to do other than masturbating and watching TV.
>>7644872 Same here anon I was a entitled shitlord for the past 3 years, Just started to get my shit together recently.
But now I am actually doing something. Don't worry bro as long as you keep on it and be consistent you can make it. I'm about to finish two, year long courses by Christmas, and I am on my way to getting straight A's for the fist time in three years. I'm not planing on stopping either, that's the main thing really, you are your own main obstacle. When you quit dishing out excuses you will get shit done.
I'm pretty much taking physics with almost no prior knowledge in math (since I haven't paid attention in three years) so it's tough but I'm managing and exceeding in the course with about 6 chapters ahead in 2 weeks.
Everything going against me right now is my own fault anyways, I have nobody to blame but myself, and i'm not going to act like I do.
>>7644614 That was pretty funny. And obviously he's just got different interests than physics. He said it was boring, not that he's totally failing at it. I don't see what the problem is. When ya'll get older you'll understand that people being interested in different things than you are is fucking great. Imagine movies and music made by your average nobel laureate
>>7644895 Every time I see "I failed because teachers/lecturers/tutor sucks" I can guarantee > 95% of the time its the student being a lazy shit, like I was in first year. Almost lost my honours, but I turned it around.
>>7644925 What really gets to me is when I see someone trying to get there shit together again, but someone peer pressures them into failing again. Just because you are going to be working at McDonald's doesn't mean other anon has to too.
I don't see much wrong with the "oppression" of dumbfucks who have already fucked up to much to change. But when they try and make someone else a dumbfuck it get's to me ,but I mean I guess the kids gotta learn to stand up for themselves sooner of later so Idk.
>>7644878 I was agreeing that math is important and anything you learn in school. The mistake I made was writing it in a vague prose. Sorry about that anon. PDEs is very important because the thinking, problem solving, and reasoning is very critical to any human being. Most people want to learn something "useful". The word useful is subjective. Which most people do not know. >>7644895 I graduated and I will do a second degree in my late 20s. Right now, I'm jsut tired of school but I know I messed up. But I want to either Math/CS or Math/Biophysics.
>>7645621 my AP physics course felt pretty hard it made me man the fuck up about school grades since i'd never had to try before the only actual part of high school that prepared me for college which was mostly a breeze after the weedout classes
Are you guys edgy faggots? I did maths and sciences as far as I could in school and when I look back I realise the maths was all useful but almost all of the chemistry, biology, and physics courses were stamp collecting bullshit.
Maybe if you're wikipedia skimming fedoratard then you think a subject such as biology, where all we did was literally memorise the contents of 2 or 3 thick workbooks, gives you a "real understanding".
Although in response to this >>7644656 , the guy should've done maths and stopped whining
>>7644872 >They all complain either way. They have no self-control, nor any thinking capacity. In less extreme terms, I think you're on the money. Talking to your average Cletus, you'll hear exactly the same thing about "Damn, after pay day I spend all my money then I'm poor for the rest of the month HAHAHA". People who just live to spend their money on beer at the weekend, and that's their entire life. They don't understand doing their taxes because they never put the effort in to learning it properly.
Also, if education only taught you about basic shit for daily life, lots of kids would never be inspired to make art, study engineering, study science or do anything interesting.
I remember in Ontario they used to teach grade 12 students about winding numbers. Obviously that's a terrible idea. Maybe that's what you get when you put mathematicians in charge of creating the curriculum?
>>7646947 Theres no joke. I'm friends on facebook with a lot of people who study music and they bitch all day and night about how hard their lives are. And that just makes me resent them and their facebook posts.
I tried uni when I was 20 didn't like it, did a trade in an industry that allows me to earn more than I would of with the degree I was getting. I'm now 29 and I'm taking first steps to get back to uni for 2017.
>>7646714 He's right though. I stopped caring about math when I was introduced to the concept of imaginary numbers. What a crock of shit. If your equation can only be solved by inventing numbers that can't exist, like some kind of math deity , then you are fucking wrong and the math is flawed. Same for algebra solutions that basically say "the correct answer is whatever the correct answer is". Thats what the math said transcribed to words but god forbid if i wrote in down in english instead of the ancient math runes the teacher word mark me wrong.
Math is logical and numbers never lie my ass. Math is just as flawed as any other human construct.
>implying reals can exist >implying naturals can exist >implying "thing" and "not thing" can exist >implying the entirety of maths isn't invented and has any natural connection to the real world other than being a convenient model in some parts
You little filthy pot licker.
