An ADULT man that I used to be facebook friends with posted on facebook during the U.S. presidential elections (and I quote exactly):
"I'm gonna go far enuf to say that if you are a Christian and u vote for Obama u need to go to the alter and repent."
Like, you're entitled to your opinions, but... that's too far.
About twenty minutes before the final exam for precalculus, I ask one of the students if they feel ready. They say they didn't study at all. I ask why, and he says "Well, it's not like it even counts, right? So why bother studying if it won't affect my mark? Even if I get 0% on this exam, I'll still have a C."
Just for the record. The exams are about 50% of our mark. The teacher had been telling us this since the first day of the semester.
In my World History class (which starts from the Industrial Revolution because American History is adding another 75 years. yep, the genius that is school bureaucracy, right?), we had a map test. We had to show where all the continents were, the equator, tropic lines, an/arctic lines, and prime meridian.
People copied off me; others failed it.
In my AP US History class the teacher asked a girl how people traveled on the water when transporting goods and she replied "I don't know. Walking."
"I love Nirvana. When are they making a new album?" My sister asked me this.
