Also about taught and skills+79Life is like a RPG. You level up on your birthday, and gain various skills such as 'walking' and 'dancing' on the way. School is like the newbie zone, where you get free healing food and get taught everything you need to know. Then by the end of the newbie zone you get to choose your class (fireman, scientist, etc...) and you spend the rest of your RPG life completing quests before deadlines and earning money. But the only thing missing is respawn. amirite?
Also about Science+133We have never drank 100% clean water in our entire lives, amirite?
Also about taught and learned+839Our education system is less about learning than it is about superficially showing that we've learned something. Standardized tests are proof of this. You get shoved a whole textbook of factoids,and then you regurgitate it all in a three hour test at the end of the year. Rarely are we taught the significance and purpose of what we learn; we learn just to show that we've learned. Our educational system goes for the cheap-shot quicky: here's a fact. Memorize it. Repeat it. This is education. amirite?
Also about taught and learned+124The most important lessons learned are those taught by oneself, amirite?
Also about Science+118Humans are closer to making humans in a Petri dish, than proving humans evolved from something other than humans. amirite?
Also about taught and learned+541Babies aren't born with any innate knowledge, it's all learned. If you took a baby and raised it in isolation and taught it that the universe was created by a bisexual centaur in a fedora, they would passionately believe that, amirite?
Also by Iapetus-11+64In most forms of media, a love triangle doesn't actually form a triangle. At most it forms a love arrow. amirite?
Also about taught and skills+54When millennials were kids, the grown-ups taught them social skills like how to avoid acting rude, inappropriate, etc. Now that those same grown-ups have come to social media, their kids had to teach them those very same rules for online conduct. amirite?
Also about Science+97If everybody got gud at reading scientific abstracts, we'd be in a good place, amirite?
Also by Iapetus-11+124If USB-C exists, then there's probably a USB-B and USB-A. amirite?
