I understand the complexity of it, I know that even if I was tasked in trying to figure it out, or tasked myself to try and figure it out, it would
take me a long time.
But I can picture it working in my mind at least.
Honestly im in my young 20's. I didnt goto college, I stuck with the girlfriend and living at home thing. As far as a University, how the hell
would I pay for college?
And more importantly, would I even pass? In high school I skipped every single class besides phys ed and science, the two classes my girlfriend
I would goto the library and read. I must of read 1000s of books. Noone really cared honestly and I was the exception and they still passed me if I
did like 1 project for every class. They all said I was smart, in fact most people I meet tell me I am really smart. Someone who got his high
school diploma as a gift and never really attended high school much, I sure get alot of compliments on my intelligence.
I think my personality conflicts with school.
In math class I would just get into arguments.
Science class was cool but the funnest things were talking about science rather then learning about it. I dont think there is that much to learn to
catch up with what everyone else knows honestly. I mean big deal you can remember the periodic table or you know how to find the mole or whatever.
I beleive in specialized knowledge. Me going to college = me not learning anything. Ill put my mind to whatever I want to get done, and learn
everythng on the way there. Not flooding my mind with things I likely will never use in my life, or could even be proven false.
Like my math teacher telling me that you can somehow subtract, add. multiply, or divide negative numbers and get a positive. WTH. If you have
something negative and you mathematize it with something else that is negative, you cant ever get a positive.
So that is about the degree of what I think about college and all of that junk. Why do I need to learn US history to figure out how to make a bomb
detector? if anything it slows me down from the ultimate goal.
Sign me up for bomb detector school though.
