She looks like she is going to grow up to be quite pretty so the fact that she is a dumb as box of hammers won't matter. While nature takes with one hand it gives back with the other.


So if she's dumb as a box of hammers...

And you fell for her satire....

What's that say about you?



As you fell for mine, I'll put the same question back to you.


Lulz. Sure. So satire, much wow, very wit!

I'm talking about a lack of education causing people to post stupid #, I didn't realize using flat earthers' posts didn't comply with your example.


I didn't realize that you were talking about posts. I thought you were talking about people in general and while I admit that flat earth is silly, it's no more silly than people who are ignorant of everything except who's banging who in Hollywood.

Eh...you said "social media posts" and then some stuff about their sad reality.

I said flat earther posts. Which is their sad reality.

I'd say people that push flat earth theories due to their lack of education and knowledge are a bit more serious of an issue than people who are worried about what Brad Pitt is up to.

It depends.

From some of the things I've seen, people who are only aware of social gossip can be every bit as ignorant education-wise as flat earthers. The ignorance simply tends to express itself in different outlets.

I think I've seen another one of hers where she talks about the language difference between English and American and makes out she doesn't realise that pound is a currency and a measure of weight. But your right about there probably being people stupid enough to think that.

Interest in pop culture is hardly indicative of intelligence. Everyone likes to be entertained.

I was not "crapping" on this girl, i'm merely making a social comment on education via proxy which in retrospect was not a good move.

In high school one of my class projects was to write a children's book and read it to class of young kids-it was good enough to be put in the school library. When I was nine a teacher taught us how gravity works by putting a bowling ball on a trampoline do demonstrate how gravity affects the fabric of space.

Twenty years later I am participating in citizen science and creating text adventure games and had a stint (and a possible future career in radio) because my teachers had wanted us to have a hands on approach.

"Learning is like sex, it's only enjoyable when it's fun." I came up with that in five minutes and that's because nearly twenty years ago I wrote a children's book for a genius exam and that has lead to pursue a career in the media.

When you enjoy something, you want to learn more. I started getting into meteorology after I played a weather reporter in a mock episode of the Today show. Teachers need to be more Mr. Bergstrom and less Miss Hoover and if you know The Simpsons you would know what i'm trying to say.

When was the last time you were in school? Either way the system is either totally different where you live or you're just making things up. As I went to a relatively nice high school. 2nd, in grades and funding, only to the private school in the area out of 6 schools total. The kids that wanted to learn had great teachers and plenty of ap courses to choose from. From talking to friends and family that went to some of the other schools they say it was the exact same.

Those that didn't care were put in remedial classes and given elementary school worksheets. I knew many people that were fully functional but just didn't want to get an education. That either flunked out or took the remedial classes. I chose the so route myself.

So can we really say it's the teachers when many students just don't care. Especially in the poor neighborhoods. Where drugs and crime are "cooler"than getting an education.

Now that I can agree with. I can still remember the teachers I had that made class fun, in one way or another, and I can still remember which teachers made class miserable.

My own kids get home from their school day much more excited and interested in something when they've spent time doing it instead of just listening to somebody tell them about it or reading about it.

But then we get into the whole debate about teachers' unions and tenure and so on.

You find pop culture entertaining? Most of it is pretty boring and derivative. Then you have people who are famous just because they are famous and for no other reason like the Kardashians.

I can count on one hand the number of pop culture things I actually pay real attention to.

And it bugs me that Geek culture has been moved into pop culture for the same reasons I listed above.
