Also about future, past, and teach+533The mistakes you made in your past aren't meant to haunt you. They're meant to teach you a lesson and allow you to move on to the future. amirite?
Also about future and past+229Sure, maybe you won't directly need partial fractions or conics in the future but math is extremely important. It's important because it opens up your mind. Math makes your analysis skills sharper. It develops your brain and allows you to think more logically. It'll definitely help you in many critical situations in life. So therefore, math shouldn't be taken for granted just because your future job doesn't require anything past arithmetic, amirite?
Also about future and past+47We all contain the ability to time travel. Each person has individualized memories that we can get lost in; is that not traveling through the past? Our memories may be tainted by emotions and cultural bias, but together, collectively, mankind has something that many other species on earth don't have: we have a recorded past. And this is why many people cannot just live in the moment. This is why we need the concept of a future, amirite?
Also about schools teach+55The most useful thing schools teach us is how to sit patiently and not make a fuss when you are bored. amirite?
Also about schools teach+228it's stupid when people say something like "I have to stand by helplessly as the schools teach my child that it's okay to be gay". You mean they're trying teach your child to be tolerant of other people regardless of their sexual orientation?! Oh poor you, your life must be sooo difficult! amirite?
Also about future and past+216It's kind of depressing when you see future-time-travel books/movies from the past like 1984 and Back to the Future because we're not at all as advanced as they hoped we'd be, amirite?
Also about schools and teach+29Instead of having schools that teach Creationism and different schools that teach evolution, schools should teach about evolution but also teach about all the different religions in the world. Maybe the world would be a less ignorant, more unified place when it comes to science vs. religion if kids became open-minded to the ideas from the start instead of just being taught one or the other. Amirite?
Also about schools teach+8The ratio of non-leaders to leaders is huge because most groups have only one leader. So why do schools teach “leadership” instead of “followership”? It would be far more beneficial to a society if it developed good followers. Amirite?
