This.. fucking this. I got a better education in a country school. Automotive 1 & 2 welding 1 & 2 General metals 1 & 2 Electrical and plumbing. All shit you can't find in the cities. I've used EVERYTHING I'VE LEARNT in those classes yet my IB french and IB literature class.Nothing! I'm a freaking English geek and those classes did bugger all. Maybe people would not be failing if you gave other options then fucking social programs. They cut woodshop when I left the cities, fuckin' hell. Oh well while all of my friends are bitchin' about college and debt I'll be happy with welding certification because there's an demand for that!

Would had honours my last schools grading was weighted.HEAVILY.. which didn't translate over
3.86 went to 2.68 average.. it was 3.12 at the last fuckin' school. Just glad I'm out of highschool the I got tired of the meaningless social bullshit reaaal quick. I love seeing those cliche people get a real world shovel to the head. Hmm maybe I am a bitter and cynical bastard. Oh well!

The Book Shop class as soulcraft doesn't give answers so much as a discussion on how the shop class disappeared. An interesting book.

Well I learned today that most of the playgrounds of my youth are disappearing... Tetter totters sand pits, those spring motorcycles and wooden house things that were awesome to hide in during lunch.. are being torn out! The spring loaded things are completely gone now because kids got hurt and parents started suing! WHAT THE FUCK!? Wow is our society becoming that sheltered!?

Wow, I remember jumping of swings getting caught on the chain and smacking the ground like a bag of flour and I knew damn well it was my fault! But a kid falls off a rocking toy... I don't get society... granted I don't think I ever did. That's probably why I'm here

We used to 'bail off' swings at the local school until one of my friends broke his arm. Nope, nobody sued.

But today, while the number engineering students in college are way down, the number law students are way up. In San Jose, CA, for example, there is one lawyer for every 1100 people. You can sue someone for pretty much anything. It's both sad and scary.

But probably 1/3 of those work at Home Depot, Starbucks or McDonalds (not in their law departments either!)

WTF!? Why hasn't somebody bumped this thread!?


Oh yeah heres my favourite WTF for you lot.


You heard that my DQ got hacked right? Yeah Target style.. Well out of the stores they (the company.. Fourteen foods.. If yeah curious) controls only TWO of them can now use credit cards
The reason why? Is because to protect the cards they have swapped over to dial up.. Yupe so every store with one phone line... PPFFT LOL So many stores CAN'T use credit cards now.



Also just to bitch about work.. WHO THE FUCK GOES TO A DQ TO ORDER A SALADE AND A RANCH GRILLED CHICKEN WRAP!?

In my personal opinion I can't eat th estuff anymore.. My body is just rejecting it now. Too much greasy crap. Also to be fair it isn't that good for the price

The five buck lunch I get... But a freaking one piece of chicken wrapped up in a shell with a splash of ranch, a sprinkle of lettece and cheddar cheese, rolled up cooked in a mircowave and sold for 4 bucks.
The salades cost about the same as the 6 piece baskets if not more if I remember.

Also.. DQ.. icecream shop.. Lets be honest you wouldn't go to taco bell for freaking spagetti... I shouldn't say this crap watch Taco bell come out with spagetti next week because of me just saying that.

Why do we all bitch about life not being "fair" yet don't think twice about not offering a coat or warm blanket to a homeless person?

When did we each become so self righteous that we honestly believe only our shit doesn't stink?

What happened in America that caused us to accept that if you changed the name of something, "SHELL SHOCK" for instance to "POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER", the new, kinder, gentler name would somehow make the situation also kinder and gentler?

Why do only the ones who smoke the most meth get interviewed by the media in times of crisis?

......?
