    I hate people who work incredibly hard to make up for their intellectual shortcomings.

    Don't get me wrong, hard work is great and all that, but don't act like you're the fucking king of the world because you did slightly better than everyone else with eight times more work.

    This came out wrong.

    I hate the attitude of superiority that these people exude. That is really what I meant, before people bite my dick off.

    Why shouldn't they feel a bit superior? They put in the extra work and that paid off, they did better than their peers.

    Because work isn't the most important thing in the world and people get pissed off very quickly when people go on about how great they are, which definitely seems to be a recurrening theme in conversation with kids like that.

    What's more important than hard work?

    If marriage is a sado-masochistic bond than I must be doing it wrong. :lol:

    Work is one of the most important things in the world. Sure, they shouldn't go on about it for too long (maybe mention once how well they did on something, but don't rub other people's faces in it), but that doesn't mean they shouldn't feel superior or proud of their work in that specific area.

    it just occurred to me that the cloth I tied around my neck soaked in ice water is pink.

    I am wearing only boxer-briefs.

    I can only wonder what will go through my parents' minds if they come into my room.

    I know what's going through my pants right now.

    For some reason when I read it the first time I thought it said she was a teacher.

    Which, of course, would have made it hilarious.

    For the record I'm not going to take a class just because of the female:male ratio

    But it is nonsensical to say that caring about the ratio is always a bad thing

    It is not sexist or dumb to think hey if I want to meet women it might help to be places where there are women

    just having lots of girls around is great on the whole

    Responding by PM.

    Ominous

    Eh, nothing really. Just people don't like it in here so I took it to PM. Pretty much just reiterated and applied my relationship thread.

    I think the conversation would be fine in here, but it's up to you. Whatever you're comfortable with. :)

    The joys the fruits of your labour bring, of course.

    If you can get more out of less work, that's fantastic.

    Yup, schools certainly can get pretty nasty for the teachers, if listening to my mother and her friends (they are all teachers) gossip is anything to go by. But then I suspect any long term employment, very stable workforce situation would be pretty similar.

    Wut?
    The three young girls -- under the watchful eye of a nanny, sitting on the grass with them -- explained that they had regular lemonade, raspberry lemonade, and small chocolate candy bars.

    Then my brother asked how much each item cost.

    "Oh, no," they replied in unison, "they're all free!"

    I sat in the back seat in shock. Free? My brother questioned them again: "But you have to charge something? What should I pay for a lemonade? I'm really thirsty!"

    His fiancee smiled and commented, "Isn't that cute. They have the spirit of giving."

    That really set me off, as my regular readers can imagine.

    "No!" I exclaimed from the back seat. "That's not the spirit of giving. You can only really give when you give something you own. They're giving away their parents' things -- the lemonade, cups, candy. It's not theirs to give."

    I pushed the button to roll down the window and stuck my head out to set them straight.

    "You must charge something for the lemonade," I explained. "That's the whole point of a lemonade stand. You figure out your costs -- how much the lemonade costs, and the cups -- and then you charge a little more than what it costs you, so you can make money. Then you can buy more stuff, and make more lemonade, and sell it and make more money."

    Seriously?

    Jeep, it's okay you aren't good at math, that's what the SOCIAL sciences and liberal studies are for. :P

    Fuck that man, I'm probably going to major in biology and just struggle through the minimum amount of math needed for the degree.

    I was always good at science in high school, I even did pretty well in chemistry despite the math involved. I love English, but when I listen to our resident English Lit majors talk here, I generally want to punch them in the head, so I must avoid the liberal arts.

    As a Biology major who sucked at math:

    Totally doable. Go for it!

    I full understand how social studies departments can get nasty. Think of what these people teach and study? Hell part of the AP Euro curriculum at my school was reading The Prince. I mean if you know all these things about history and how people gained power, don't you want to try them out?

    <===Wants to be a history teacher but knows full well what he is getting into and cares less than two shits.

    You know on the other hand, a very good friend of mine became a high school history teacher (started out in middle school, moved up a few years ago) and he loves it. His father is a retired high school art teacher, and his step mother is a middle school principal who is set to retire soon.

    He's totes popular with his students (they fucking love him, because the dude has always been a hoot) and this year the graduating class voted him to give their commencement (a sure sign of popularity, if not necessarily skilled teaching).

    I haven't asked him about the politics of his job, but I can only imagine he is managing well or he would be unhappy and dream-crushed by now.

    I will say though he is smart, witty, and has a hell of a way with people. He's one of those people who can verbally rip someone into tiny little pieces and even have his victim laughing at themselves in shame, so I imagine with that kind of social skill he can kind of power his way through a lot of the political bullshit.

    My history/social studies teachers were all crazy.

    I had a super liberal hippie chick in 7th grade. I remember when she was going over the dispute over how states should be represented in goverment (the house of representatives/senate compromise), she claimed that an equal number of representatives from each state was the "fair" way. Except it's not (why should Montana have a vote as strong as New York? There's like 12 people in that state).

    Then I had a really old black dude who was very strict. I have no idea what his politics were because he was too busy yelling at students all the time.

    Then I had a younger black dude who was pretty laid back and liked to ramble on and on about whatever he felt like talking about. He seemed pretty smart, but he would start the class talking about the revolutionary war and end up talking about some guy he knew in high school.

    Then I had a white guy who thought George W. Bush was a good president. He was a nice, good person, but he thought George W. Bush was a good president.
