    Default Could it get worse? Educational fail in America

    I'm really astonished about the speed of degenerating mental capacities in the US. But what can we expect from a country the is lead by a demonic shaddow gov.
    I start to beleive that the usa are in fact an experiment how fast you can turn intelligent humans in vegetables, or cattle,sheep etc.
    This video is one of many and I'm concerned that this country is still a nuclear power.

    I refuse to watch, lol. Thanks for posting though, Flash's reaction is very amusing!

    "could it get worst?" is amusing too, I can't tell if that's supposed to be a joke or not, but either way - still amusing!

    How about this one;

    my "edumakayshin" in the US in the '60s was a sham back then but the system continuously became worse-

    I remember my oldest step bother telling me many yrs. ago how frustrated his two sons felt in school because the whole class had to stop and back-pedal for the slowest learner(s) in the class- and it's why the gifted child is no longer wanted in a classroom; where being unique is a curse-

    Charlotte Iserbyt's "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America" and Joseph Farrell's "Rotten to the (Common) Core" explain a lot-

    wasn't it David Rockefeller who stated "I don't want a nation of thinkers- I want a nation of workers"?

    the venerable George Carlin on education (warning: "fowel langwidge") :-)))

    Education is a great way to dumb down people and make slaves. They definitely are doing their best in America. Sorry to say it looks like they are succeeding.

    The formation of planets (and stars) is like a giant cosmic version of the creation of soap bubbles. They're always round, too. No-one's ever seen a single flat soap bubble floating in the air!

    It's not a 100% exact analogy, because the forces are different ones. But it's the same kind of thing happening.
    • Planets and stars are spherical because of equal gravity pulling on everything, which makes the shape symmetrical.
    • Soap bubbles are spherical because of equal surface tension pulling on everything, which makes the shape symmetrical.
    Symmetry, caused by the action of equal forces, is the theme here.

    The point is that gravity and rotation form a Globe. It's the natural form. Planets are never exactly round like a soap bubble due to geoformation of the tectonic platesbut a flat formation is impossible. People always think they can beat natural laws like Physics or mathematic with their ignorant and false guided minds. for me it's outmost amusing

    Isn't a sphere the most efficient shape when relating surface area to internal volume?

    That makes the sphere the "natural" shape - the shape most likely to be assumed by any amount of matter.

    A flat disc screams uneven forces and/or intentional design.
    If not now, then when?

    Yes, that's how surface tension works to create perfect bubbles. A sphere is the 3D shape with the smallest possible surface area relative to its volume.

    as an addendum to my previous posting (has nothing to do with spheres- am just staying on topic with this):

    many 'Amerikuns' don't even know the difference between the words 'with' or 'without';

    let alone the concept of between "hung" and "hanged"-

    or the difference between "was" and "were"- and it's also the the land were gerunds run uncontrolled-

    yrs. ago I ordered a "Coke without ice" at a bar; I had to repeat my order 5 times before the coin fell down the slot in the bartender's mind; then suddenly (gosh) the bartender asked me: "do you mean 'no ice'?"- I stated 'yes' mentally scratching my head- I almost fell from the bar stool (was I in the wrong film?- obviously)

    and in the "Suthern" states of the US one of the many colloquialisms (I call them "misteaks") is instead of "I used to be able to" they say "I useta could"; or instead of saying "you all" or "you lot" (forget 'y'all') they say "youzzins"- I'm not making this up!-

    for awl thoze who haf Inglish az a muther tung (or knot): pleeze take kare awl and rememburr ure grammur and spellinks-

    Natural languages change over time. That's just the way it is. English orthography is flaky. I'm sure many people have read somewhere that "fish" could be spelled "ghoti": gh as in tough, o as in women, ti as in nation.

    You know you're getting older when changes in your main language start to really bother you.
    Those who must silence others for speaking the truth cannot be innocent.

    My life is filled with nostalgia these days. Nothing new, just the same old same old. Finally at a place where I can function as a slave without much ennui and on my terms.

    With only a few years left much of my dissatisfaction and disillusionment is vanishing, replaced by a certain odd happiness for having lived a life constantly resisting the eternal onslaught of apathy.

    Intelligence is not a desirable state for the masses. It is ridiculed and derided. Use formal language in an informal setting and see how quickly you become a pariah. Try simplifying the convoluted rhetoric of our masters and see how quickly even your peers disown you. Simple is for dummies.

    Bastardizing language is a form of disrespect by those whose minds have been shaped by today's educational system. And it underlines the abysmal failure of that very same system.
    If not now, then when?
