all the girls wear those hot schoolgirl outfits. Who WOULDN'T want to go to school and see that? As for attending school on Saturday, I don't think
you will ever see more then a 5 day school week in the states. I'm really not surprised that Japan is ahead of us in the education department. Look
at all the stuff they've contributed to the world of technology.
hahaha yea, its funny though how WE have the only high technology department in the world, NASA, Dpt Defense, IBM, Microsoft............and its also
funny becuase Japan makes a big deal about thier robots becuase of thier small workforce percentage, yet the AI for the Robots comes directly from
affilaites of Carnegir- Melon, the world leader (by far) when it comes to AI. So next time, dont look at your walkman or Honda Civic and say " Gee, i
wish i can make something so simple yet precise" DO IT, there is nothing wrong with our educational system, for God's sake it was guys in thier mid
20s who put us on the moon. I challenge you fat slobs to actually crack open a physics book and not whatch the "stupor bowl" but i bet you cant.
