How many kids these days get to do all that stuff at school?
Metal work - Too dangerous. Might make a sharp knife and hurt themself.
Wood work - Too dangerous. Might get a splinter.
Cooking - Too dangerous. Might realise Mac D's is poison.
And the main point of the vid is the amount of YEARS they spend at school, and the almost total lack of anything of real use in the world we live in today.
One of the best vids I've seen OP. Short enough to fit into most peoples attention span too

Funny, I learnt how to work metal, wood and plastic, how to cook, even how to sow.
We did camping trips, had lessons with indigenous folk teaching us how their ancestors lived.
And this was at a public school.
