High school is basically just a test of patience.

They throw all the ******** they can at you and you have to see if you can make it to the end. Why? So you can get a little paper that says "Hey, look everybody! I'm smart! I have a brain! Because I have this paper that says so!".

I've not learned one single piece of valuable information in high school and I guarantee I won't in the future. We don't get to pick any of our classes and they offer nothing beyond advance Math or advanced science.

But stay in school, kids. 'Cause they say so. There's no reason, but you should still do it, since that's how society works. Isn't life fun?

I'm guessing you want to be an unskilled public service worker, no?

Please tell me when the Pythagorean Theorem will help me in life.

Give me a scenario. I don't want to be an architect or a mathematician, so please tell me when that could ever possibly help me in my every day life.

I'm waiting.

Got any interesting hobbies?
Building RC planes, maybe.
High school isn't meant to help you in your daily life, moron.
It's to help you in your professional life. You want something to help
your daily life? Try taking the "Life skills" class. It's where the retarded people go
to help teach them how to take care of themselves. Which may very well be where you belong.

I can see that you're very mad and you can't have a serious conversation without resorting to insults, so I'm going to wait a bit to let you calm down so that we might converse like civilized people.

How does that sound?

lel, troll more faggot.
what do you want to do with your life then?
I will tell you exactly what classes you will need.

See, there you go again with the childish name-calling. You're far too frustrated to have a decent conversation without acting like a child, yet you accuse ME of being uneducated.

I want to be a philosopher. We don't have the option to choose any of our classes, in my high school. The only classes we get to choose (And we can only pick ONE) is either Art, Drama or Music.

Our other classes are 100% mandatory (Math, Science, English, French, Gym, Athletics, History). None of which can help me learn about philosophy except MAYBE History. But in History we only learn about who won what war and when. Not very helpful in the field I'm interested in.

I'm pretty sure being a philosopher isn't a legitimate job anymore.
User avatar #16 to #15 - tenaciousjon (09/15/2013) [-]
Regardless, my school doesn't teach anything about philosophy.

So even simply learning about it is out of the question because school is all about learning numbers and irrelevant facts.

Never have I been taught to think about what I was being told.

Then you had **** teachers. Every class I've had since middleschool had teachers that would always give examples of how we need what they're teaching in class. Though, if you told them what career you're looking at, they'd tell you wether or not you'd actually need it. I told my algebra teacher I wanted to be a mortician and his exact words were "You might as well sleep during this class, you do that anyway, you pass every test anyway, and you won't need this". Some jobs you need that kind of stuff, some you don't. They're preparing you for as much as possible. And philosophy is something you teach yourself, that's the whole point of philosophy.

Well if philosophy is something I teach myself then what's the point of even staying in high school?

I'll never use algebra, I'll never write a sonnet, I'll never need to know the date of every war ever fought...

I asked my GrandFather of 71 years old and he said he's never used any form of math other than the basics in his life. He's a very successful man and he's very intelligent.

Most of what I'm being taught is 100% useless.

The point of staying in highschool is to avoid being that guy living in a cardboard box in the alley. And what job did your grandfather have?

He was a salesman and he won Salesman of the year, somewhere down the line. Now he's a shareholder and major owner of a large Campground in Ontario.

pay attention in history then, because you will need that **** like a ************ .
Also, you will need to get a half ass decent job to pay for that hobbie you want to make into a profession.
****** like you piss me off, you passive aggressive little bitch.

I mean, 'cause I'm a senior, and unless you are a little jock piece of **** who wants to ride to collage on an athletic scholarship, you are going to need most of that **** , and all of it if you ever plan to do a more mind-heavy profession.
