The first half of your last line counters this one, making the same piece of work shorter is a matter of revision, ie it takes longer and more work.

So what you're saying is that it's not deluded to think that your admittedly top of the line education is comparable to an average one? Seriously?

I would value an 80 year old MLK over a 40 year old MLK.

I disagree. I've read some very interesting books about nothing. It's about how you write it, not what you write. For instance I've read an entire page in The Name of the Wind about why you should always eat the entire apple and loved it. I read a paragraph about a forest in LotR and was bored out of my mind. I like forests.

As a bit of trivia: that's because they have 200,000 essays to read through and only 2,000 people to read them. I had to write a 500 word essay to get into my college, because they literally only had 100 people to read 25,000 applicant's essays.

Generally, yes, in fact this is why I posted Pascal's quote originally. In the UK, certainly; what you call "average" is the English, A-level curriculum and I can confidently state that their repository of examined texts isn't inferior in any regard (I know they study Shakespeare and Dickens, for example). The IB really isn't that much grander, it only mandates more work on behalf of the student.

If he manages to achieve more thanks to his prolonged age, then by all means I would also rate him higher. That said, the age factor would not be taken into account, just like a book's length should have no bearing whatsoever upon its contents. Writing is most authors' sole occupation and while I don't like tossing the word 'expert' around, you've got to admit that the overwhelming majority know what they're writing and how much to write.

I see your point, having read 'The Old Man and the Sea' myself and enjoyed it to some extent, but content and style aren't mutually exclusive. Consider a PowerPoint presentation, the delivery obviously has to be bold and captivating, yet it all crumbles if the content is insipid and meaningless. One page really isn't a lot; had the whole book been about eating apples, I'm sure it wouldn't have induced the same response. Likewise, I'm fairly certain no one would appreciate 'The Old Man and the Sea' if it were 600 pages of the same plot.

Not really, by that logic no one would mark high school English exams (I wrote about 8.5 pages). I highly doubt that most universities receive more than 40,000 applicants per annum, and that's only the elite ones. Besides, each personal statement (that's what they're called) gets sent to a department, of which there are decent number at any university, to reduce the numbers further. I suppose I didn't make myself clear enough - the personal statement is essentially a CV for high school graduates.

One does not often "indulge" themselves in the tedium of revision.

I'm not overly familiar with the U.K.'s schooling system, but I'll assume "A-level" would be like AP (Advanced placement) classes in America? As in above average? As in A level classes aren't a valid comparison to the average education of the nation? And besides, Shakespeare isn't that complex of a read anyway as long as you have somebody translating for you.

Of course an 80 year old MLK would have accomplished more than a 40 year old one, just living to 80 is an accomplishment. More importantly, he has 40 more years of knowledge and experience to impart on me, because he's had 40 more years to gain it. Just like an extra 400 pages would add that much more to a book.

For one, that powerpoint example isn't true. Easily the best powerpoint I ever saw was about a type of bolt. My high school shop teacher knew his shit. And no, I don't care about bolts. Or at least I didn't then, now I hate them with a passion but that's a long story.

You can write an 8.5 page paper in high school because there's one teacher for every 20 students. Universities have 1 teacher for every 200 students. And more students apply than get accepted, and not every teacher reads admission essays. I'm really not joking here, it's not some mind game to get you to write the best essay of you're life, they just don't have time for that. Like seriously, I even talked to one of my professors about it once and I was like "well shorter essays are harder to write right?" and they were like "Who cares, I don't have time to read 8,000 pages of bullshit, 1,000 is bad enough."

And yes, they know you're entrance essay was a load of shit.

The author may find revising texts tedious, but it ultimately pays off for the reader's delectation. I've definitely heard of the AP and I think it is the American counterpart. Actually, it's not just a good estimate, it is the estimate of educational standards across the country as it is the only sanctioned sixth-form curriculum. Talking of Shakespeare, I studied some of his sonnets last year. Needless to say, they're short by definition and once again, they are so overflowing with linguistic devices, which are condensed superbly, that studying them is incomparably more challenging than what you'd extol as a "long book".

True, but look at what you've ascertained as the most impressive attributes: "knowledge and experience", not the age per se. Of course living to be 80 is quite praiseworthy in absolute terms, but relatively speaking it is almost meaningless if you haven't used your extra time on this planet efficiently.

Your bolt example isn't quite what I meant as I'm certain they are appropriately fascinating to some contingent of people. By "best powerpoint", I think you're only talking about the execution. What about an extremely flashy PowerPoint, handled with conviction and done by an articulate speaker, that is about a horrendously wrong business idea? I learnt this lesson the hard way when I got a mid-low C for a 24-page essay that I had genuinely dedicated too much time

You write a personal statement as part of the admissions process. It is the only document that gets sent off along with your predicted grades, so the admissions department is simply forced to give it some consideration. I didn't get into a university because "the academic department felt that your personal statement was not as sufficiently compelling when compared to the Personal Statements received from other similar applicants."

A book isn't a letter, or an essay. You have the luxury of making it a bit longer.

Of course a decent author doesn't take that as a luxury, they write 200,000 great words instead of 400,000 good words. And maybe Catcher in the Rye is an exception, but 1984, Brave New World, and A Clockwork Orange are all 60,000 slightly-better-than-average words.

Congratulations on having a high school that makes you read actual books, but you can't honestly claim that was similar to the average American educational experience, or even the average European one, claiming otherwise would be simply deluded.

I certainly would judge a person by how long they lived. Ever heard of "respecting your elders"? Living longer gives you more time to learn about life, being a longer book gives you more time to speak about life. That's why minimum page counts go up in college, not because they just want you to work more, but because they want you to make a more intelligent point.

I mean, I know theoretically word count doesn't matter, brevity is the key to wit and Salinger could write more in 10 pages than I could in 100, but he could also write more in 100 than he could in 10, and the average published writer could do more in 25 than he could in 20.

Think I'm wrong? Try responding to this post in less than 1000 words.

Honestly, most people view it the other way round, in that indulging in a succinct, crisp book is better than a dreary, monotonous one. I'm not saying that all books must be concise; rather, they don't have to be long in order to be considered great.

I wouldn't know, I graduated in England and did the IB. Assuming you aren't familiar with it, it is an international programme, so the books I read would've been chosen by other teachers across the globe. Regardless, I can recall studying 'Animal Farm' in Grade 9 - one of my favourite reads, as a matter of interest. So no, not particularly deluded as far as I'm aware.

So you would value a 80-year-old hobo more than Martin Luther King purely on an age basis? Thought not. 'Respecting your elders' is a maxim that refers to acquired wisdom, which does not necessarily go hand in hand with age. You've mentioned time, yet you've ignored the notion of most people handling it inefficiently.

It all ultimately boils down to what is being written. Something like 'Catcher in the Rye' (basically about a teenager's introduction to hedonism) would be awfully boring if it were a long read, in the same way as something as profound in wisdom as 'War and Peace' merits many, many words.

Challenge rejected, this is just FJ after all. Obviously I could dedicate more time to trimming down superfluous bits here and there, but I don't see the point, sorry. As a bit of trivia, everyone who applies for university in the UK has to write a document that categorically can't be more than 5,000 characters in length.

Yes.

You can do more than 7 times as much with 700 pages than 100.

I haven't read Catcher in the Rye, but if it's anything like any of the other mid-1900's novellas that they make you read in high school than it's pretty shit too.

I'm not sure why those books are considered classics, maybe because they're the only ones short enough to get the entire population to read that still technically "have a point".
#103 - kolsinder (09/06/2013) [-]
That is a very brazen claim, hasn't anyone ever told you the saying 'quality, not quantity'? What does "do" insinuate? Granted it does match your description, you haven't read the book and therefore aren't entitled to judge it. Load of bollocks again, I had to read 'Jane Eyre', 'My Name is Red' and 'Norwegian Wood' during my last year of school, the shortest of which was 350 pages long. If you're suggesting that the so-called classics' short length is an attempt to pander to people's laziness, you're simply deluded. The length of a book is completely immaterial; you wouldn't judge a person by how long they had lived, right?

The reason they're deemed classics is because that happens to be the general consensus amongst the chattering classes. If you don't approve of the books, that's absolutely fine, but you've got to understand that your viewpoint is inferior for the time being.

No amount of sleep is a sufficient solution for sleep apnea, even if it's borderline. For example, you have a crappy car on rent that can only run on one kind of fuel that is shit. You can't fill the tank beyond it's capacity, the fuel has bad mileage/energy content and you can't use any other fuel without upgrading it because your car loaner's a jackass and you can't do it yourself anyway.

Real life situation: Shitty sleep, shitty coffee flavor that brings shitty caffeine tolerance coupled with shitty parents who can't even understand my explanation that I do not have an internal on/off button, much less allow me to sleep polyphasically or even use sleep pills when I pass bedtime. I'm very often sleep deprived, and was stunned to reach an entirely new level of clarity and alertness I never thought existed this morning when my teacher woke me up from a half unwilling nap. I imagine this is how everyone feels 2 hours after waking up. Worst of all, I haven't even developed some kind of tolerance for sleepiness.

Seriously. The coffee my dad drinks is like shit mixed with vanilla extract. Looks like shit, tastes like shit, some shit of both kinds is nutritious except coffee like vanilla extract, smells good.

Then they tell me not to fall asleep in class or before bedtime.

I'd respond with detail, except chronic sleepiness is keeping me from thinking clearly.

1: Perhaps there's an alternative reason for capitalizing religion that could still extend.
2: I'm having trouble thinking up such a future too- this, I blame on sleep apnea.
3: I like how politicians form the most fucked up opinions- yet fear how successfully they convince others.
User avatar #409 - kolsinder (09/04/2013) [-]
Have a nap? Or, failing that, a cup of coffee? Maybe, I can't recall having grammar rules explained to me after Year 8, so I'm naturally not an expert in this domain. Well you've still got to concede that it's far from evident, to say the very least. I thought that was the theorist's job - I do of course agree with the fact that they're the ones instilling said opinions in everyone's mind.

I might have been on once or twice, but I was around 12 at the time. I only started visiting Funnyjunk on a regular basis in 2009, and as far as I can remember it was green initially. I have to say I much prefer the current colour scheme though.

Yes, as a matter of fact, I do. I enquired about your Funnyjunk hiatus, specifically where you mentioned that you wouldn't return until some date in February, which, I presume, is today. Since it's obviously over now, you can pretty much ignore my comment.
User avatar #30 to #29 - existacne (02/12/2013) [-]
Alrighty then.
Btw, since when you have a blue nickname and this profile picture?
User avatar #31 to #30 - kolsinder (02/12/2013) [-]
I changed my display picture a few days ago, I reckoned it was a nice gif, particularly since I've been really into Anthrax recently. As for my blue name, well I've had one ever since magical fairy princess released the update; I've been browsing FJ for quite a while now, after all.

Я в Санкт-Петербург временно переехал и тут на Новый год было около аж +4 и лужи.
Ещё и оставил reaction folder весом 3.5 Гб на старом компе, так как здесь, на фанниджанке, меня забанили. Кто ж знал, что здешний админ меняет свои решения чуть ли не ежедневно.
User avatar #17 to #16 - kolsinder (01/14/2013) [-]
Здорово, я на Канарских Остравах, где аж +20 было. Ничего себе, у меня только есть папка особенно тупых троллфейсов. Полагаю, что ПМС закончился...
User avatar #18 to #17 - existacne (01/14/2013) [-]
Ну у меня...эээ...была папка анрилейтеда, папка поней, папка типичных реакшн пикчей, папка гифок без подписей, **** папка с подпапками обычного порно, изврата и шок контента.
Да уж, зря, короче, я её не взял.
И как оно было на Канарских Остравах? Я шампанского пол бокала пригубил под оливье котлеты с картошкой и норм.
User avatar #19 to #18 - kolsinder (01/14/2013) [-]
Блин, у моего друга тоже папка с шок-контентом... обосновал он это тем, что рано или поздно, таких изображений больше не буде в интернете. Глубокая мысль, как говорится.
Если мне необходимо что-нибудь запостить, я всегда нахожу нужное через Гугл) Да вообще офигенно, тепло, спорт, время отдохнуть, но и в то же время поработать... В двух словах, очень кайфово. А почему только пол бокала? Я был с семьей, так что, как разумеется, не был мордой в салате. А, забыл упомянуть: там еще еда охрененная. Во блин, как уже захотелось обратно.
User avatar #20 to #19 - existacne (01/15/2013) [-]
"Я был с семьей"
Same **** , bro. Трезвенники жи.
Через гугол можно лишь большую часть найти, то есть те картинки, что очень распространены. Ну хоть зато сейчас у меня двойная защита от бана - нельзя пикчи постить и почти нечего постить.
Насчёт "такие изображения пропадут из интернета" - это чушь полнейшая. Что попало в сеть, то осталось в сети. Нужна победа Северной Кореи над всем интернетом, что этот твой друг был прав. Хотя особо жареные пикчи регулярно пропадают и появляются снова, там снафф всякий или центральный процессор.
User avatar #22 to #20 - kolsinder (01/15/2013) [-]
Ну вот, хотя двумя бокалами все равно удалось насладиться. А, так тем более... выкладывай ОС, получай плюсики :D Думаешь? Все-таки не каждое подобное изображение замечается всеми. Допустим если я что-нибудь такое "шокирующее" выложу, не факт, что весь интернет сразу картинку подхватит. Небось такие, как он все это и выкладывают снова, лол.
User avatar #23 to #22 - existacne (01/15/2013) [-]
Мне не нужно, чтобы весь интернет подхватывал то, что я выкладываю. Мне куда приятней использовать те картинки, что другие не используют. Именно такие нераспространённые картинки я и сохраняю, потому что остальное легко могу нагуглить.
