pufferfish blows up, pops bag, free. pops others' bags

Really bugs me how the bags are full of water but somehow defying gravity/Archimedes principle and floating above the water line :(
User avatar #206 to #164 - aahrg (05/06/2013) [-]
maybe it's fresh water in the bags, and floating in salt water?

sounds like you paid attention in high school!

The bigger reason I celebrated graduating high school was because it was finally over and I didn't have to deal with the people/place any more.
User avatar #74 to #5 - corkscrew (05/06/2013) [-]
and then did you have to deal with people in college?

I am not anti social by any means, I had my group of friends and I got along well with others, but I just really didn't like the majority of preppy kids who went there, even if they thought I was cool.

could not agree more with this statement...
it really feels like it was almost a waste of 3 years. even graduated early...
pretty much learned everything i can on the internet
#243 to #6 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
I disagree. I feel like I have leanrt a lot in high school. But if those three years could've been different, maybe I wouldn't have so much regrets today.
I seriously struggled with my social skills. And I ******* lost.
Thank god that's all over.

I had a party after graduation, I didn't want one, but I still got one. I just didn't really see the purpose in celebrating something that thousands if not millions of others accomplish every year. Now if I got a PhD that would be an accomplishment worth noting and throwing a party for.

So doing something for 13 years meant nothing for you?

It's a huge, personal deal. It's the moment in which you're no longer a child; it's when you've gotta leave everything back and take on something bigger.

If you don't care about all the emotional crap, then you're right; any idiot can graduate high school - millions do per year. But if you do care about it, then it is a pretty huge deal.

I see all these comments that say "High School is easy if you're not a moron"

Maybe it was easy for you but not easy for other people. I can honestly say High School sucked for me. I got made fun of, i took hard classes so i can achieve my goals in life, and yeah High School is difficult for me (i graduate next month). Just because high school was easy for you doesn't mean it was easy for everyone.

That's why it's a big deal to some people.

Is your logic also: 'If you're not smart you're a bumbling retard' ??

Though I don't class myself as smart, I know some very intelligent people who are finding the maths and science A levels challenging.
User avatar #101 to #100 - ningyoaijin (05/06/2013) [-]
My logic is, "even I, who has the IQ of a walnut, finished my Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology A-Levels with 3 A's and a B, whilst attending about half my lessons and barely revising."
User avatar #103 to #101 - cthumoo (05/06/2013) [-]
So you scored low on an IQ test and are judging your intelligence off that?
User avatar #105 to #103 - ningyoaijin (05/06/2013) [-]
I've never taken an IQ test, but if you ever met me, you'd know I'm not too bright.
#129 to #56 - omnomonom (05/06/2013) [-]
I think what they're getting more at is that, in retrospect, high school is much easier than it seems while you're doing it. I just finished first year uni and the lifestyle and school changes make it harder than high school and I bet that when I'm done uni it'll seem easier than living on my own and trying to find a job.

In high school things are more laid out for you and someone else is, more or less, in control. In my opinion, that makes high school easier.

Goodluck on your finals!

Incoming long story :   
First time I enter high school, I really have a serious acne problem and too skinny like Jews in Austchwitz, which makes me have low self-esteem, moron as 			****		, being made fun by jocks because of my looks, which lead to be not accepted in high school society.

Facial, diet and lifting, study and try to socialize with people. 			****		, everytime I see my old photos, always thought in my mind : "That kid is ugly as 			****		", or when I see my old diet logs, I feel really 			****		 that at first, I can only do 3 negative pullups and now I can 			*******		 do 28 pullups and chinups, continuously. And I 			****		 you not, after 2 years of doing that, 			****		 changed 165 degree. My face real smooth and I'm a bit muscled, which makes me accepted by the jocks, my grades is pretty good too. Also, I don't feel awkward to people again, and I made many close friends, even with those who made fun of me before. But well, I'm still a bit shy to talk with girls, but I can fix it. Next Wednesday is my high school graduation ceremony, and I'm all set for the happy ending from my everlasting misery.    
   
Bitch all you want, but the truth is, things sucks because you didn't try hard enough.

Wrong. my dad was "The jock"
He was quarterback, smoked pot, and partied with all the "popular people" and life was easy, never made below a 75 in a class and did pretty well.
Now he is 38, alcoholic, drug dealer.

Then you made a huge progress. I was bullied in Highschool, but now I'm succesful and confident, but not because the life became easier, but because I realized that I have to fight to get what I want in my life.

It's easy in comparison to pretty much every other part of your life post high school. You will see one day. Not putting you down or anything but I wish my life was just "Oh no Rachel doesn't like me, and the popular kids call me a faggot." and AP classes like in my high school days.

I don't know how your life went. But my mom had me when she was 20, and in college, my dad didn't go to college and worked for all my life in a failing family business while my mom finished nursing school we were incredibly poor and I had Attention Deficit Disorder and still have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. My parents divorced, I was moved 300 miles to a new school and with another man who wasn't my father for 3 years until my sister broke 6 vertebrae and my mother divorced again, gonig through 1 year of bed ridden depression, while I began smoking cigs and marijuana. I moved out and live with my dad who is a 38 year old Alcoholic. And I have minor hereditary anxiety and depression. YET, have maintained a 3.5 GPA in all honors classes.
Because I ******* tried.

I did the IB and I must disagree with you. It does have a heavy workload and the amount of information is pretty high for a HS level but it's still not THAT much.

Coursework for the languages are taken care of in the first year, the second year is just rehearsing for your exams which are a cakewalk.
Math I can't really talk about, it comes easy for me and I did SL because i was too lazy to do HL, but the portfolio por SL is a joke.
For socials I did ITGS which was taught outside IB guideliness, our teacher, god amongst men taught us whatever he thaught was actually important for the first year We then did the project in 6 months which was a bitch, all class time was spent designing a website and the report part was homework.
I then had Bio and Chem HL, ******* loved it, reports can't take you more than an hour, two tops to make and if you like science it's VERY interesting and easy, if not do SL, which is a joke.
My extended essay was about videogames as a method of education, I actually got a group of students to play a videogame during 3 Bio classes, they loved me for it. Most people dislike the Essay because it's a lot of work, it is, but as a job, if you like doing it, you don't suffer, otherwise choose a language essay and it's just like any coursework, only with 3k words.
TOK is, in my opinion, a picnic where you have friendly discussions with the teacher about stuff and then write an essay about that and you're done.

Med school demands 30 hours a week of home studying - for just 3 subjects. I love it, but my ass and the chair have achieved a more stable relationship than my right hand and my weewee.
#104 to #95 - hoopfan (05/06/2013) [-]
what did you end up getting?
User avatar #172 to #104 - basicargentinian (05/06/2013) [-]
7 maths, 6 in both sciences, 5 in ITGS, B for both essays.

As i was so badass and smoked weed a lot and didn't care about my grades in languages I wrote 420 words about marijuana for paper 2 A2 english, barely answered paper 1 and got a 4. I gave in paper 1 blank for spanish, paper 2 I properly answered because my teacher was examining, got a 4 also - I'm assuming this was averaged with the A's I got in my coursework for both.

I regret the part about being 2kool5languages because I could've had 6 or 7 and gotten a decent scolarship abroad but I wanted to stay in argentina, go to University of Buenos Aires (it's the best in south america, and it's public)
#203 to #172 - hoopfan (05/06/2013) [-]
so a 34? That's probably why our perspectives of it are so different. Our school pushes us so hard, you got 180 pupils doing it every year, our average points total last year was 40.1. I'm currently on track for a 41, if exams go as well as they're currently going, with paper 2 philosophy tomorrow morning at 8 am gmt, finishing on may 17th! I hear the international average is 28, so for us to be averaging 12 points higher than that, we must suffer a lot more than the average ib student!

I think the IB could probably be a very good, and not so difficult education system had it not been for my high school, im done in four days time and the problem is that I have been dependent on the quality of teaching the entire time. TOK i got ****** the first year because **** teacher didn't know what she was talking about, Environmental systems and societies (im not interested/ smart enough for any other science) got ****** the second year with a 60 year old incompetent teacher. Math SL terrible teacher as well for the first year, who was replaced by a true god among men as you say the second year. It's all come down to whether i had good teacher in the end, certain subjects i have gotten great grades and understanding others i have just been cursing my poor luck with teachers. I admit I would have liked to have gone to a properly organised school. I live in Italy and the organisation has been atrocious.

TL DR: IB is probably noot too difficult, if you have good teachers.



User avatar #185 to #156 - basicargentinian (05/06/2013) [-]
Good teachers are essential, In my school we have the same teachers both years unless something happens, first year I had 3 chem teachers, which made us go slowly and have to catch up knowledge the following year. For first year bio I had the best teacher ever, he had 3 PhDs and an MBA, he quit because the school didn't want to pay more...for the best qualified teacher ever...and the 2nd year backup was a useless hag, good thing I love bio and learnt it in my own time.

Im taking Physics HL, Chemistry HL, Math HL, self taught Economics HL along with SL English and ab intio German.... if you take that kind of diploma its not nearly as easy... so you can't say that ib is easy as a general statement
User avatar #178 to #133 - basicargentinian (05/06/2013) [-]
Well, yes, you did choose the two hardest ib subjects(math+chem), plus two other higher level subjects, which is one more HL than intended. You made the IB hard (which is good) taking IB the intended way isn't hard.

Winning against AI in Rugby 08 isn't hard, but if you play with Canada against RSA on the hardest difficulty you're going to have a tough time

I'm sill in my first year of the D.P program, and I find it quite difficult, especially compared to what my friends in the standard high school are doing. I take Econ, English A and Bio HL, and since I enjoy all of those subjects I do not mind the workload. However the standard level subjects that I take (Math, French A, History) are what is making the course really hard because of all the extra work that I don't consider my primary focus. Especially as a transition from the MYP system that was a complete joke, I find the I.B quite hard, especially in comparison to most if not all other high school systems. I'm currently taking my SL exams, hopefully I'll do well enough on them to be able to drop them next year and focus on my HL subjects. Either way I wish the best of luck to all of my fellow I.B D.P participants!

In American Culture finishing High School represents the beginning of true adulthood. Almost all jobs require a high school diploma now; furthermore, I could not join the Marine Corps until I graduated high school, and leaving for the Marines was the day my childhood ended and my adulthood began. So, its kind of a big deal.

High school is easy compared to college.
I know that exams feel, I had 8 of them senior year (AP/IB).

But still, the longest paper I ever wrote in high school was ~14 pages and took half a year.
Last week I turned in a 20-page paper that I wrote in four days.
There's a difference.

Although, unless you're taking math or languages in college, you will have much fewer turn-in assignments per week than in high school.

If anything, I only attended the ceremony to say goodbye to the friends that I probably won't ever see again, as well as the social I'll never live again. (I can't be the only shut-in).

I'd rather say goodbye to my friends I'll never bother to contact again and just have the friendship end there rather than have it fade away like most of them tend to do.

Nah, you're not the only shut-in. Commenting on FJ, and simply lurking a few forums here and there, is my main social outlet at this point, as sad as that is.
But I'm kind of all right with that, for the time being. People are... well, they can be frustrating.

Dude. Facebook is a thing. You can literally always be friends with people forever.

Facebook vs. Seeing acquaintances every day in real life

I'm sorry, real life wins this round

Facebook vs. never seeing or hearing from your old friends again and wondering what happened to them? Sorry Facebook wins this round.

It makes it easier to stay in touch, I'm saying.

I know, but the friendships don't feel genuine unless you meet, talk, and hangout in person.

That is unless you have daily Skype calls, which I don't

Methinks OP must have took underwater basket weaving, gym, and home ec., rather than AP or IB classes

High school sucked, man, being an introvert, and a veritable poster boy for Socially Awkward Penguin. I was that weird loner that never talked or participated in extracurricular activities/clubs. People probably thought I was a creepy, future serial killer or whatever. Ended up dropping out and just getting my GED.
