    Default i was thinking

    reading through old threads there are numerous instances of god persuading kids to stop working hard in school and/or forgo their academics or social lives in order to post on pd. i wonder how many lives he has doomed to working class jobs and little hope of economic advancement due to forced abandonment of traditional avenues for pursuing higher levels of academic enlightenment or securing careers in the higher spectrum of income through his influence alone.

    to be TRUTHFUL probably very few even if they took my advice. if you're regular middle class, which most people on pokemon message boards are, slacking off in high school and going to a regular state college will be able to land you a decent job as long as you major in something not stupid, engineering etc. its really only poor people who need to make sure they stay on their game to get anywhere the easy way.

    well 'decent job' is subjective. maybe a few forumites couldve done a lot better if they didnt have a dude on the internet telling them school was useless.

    "let's not tell kids that the education system is flawed" is totalitarian mentality.

    I didn't slack off in high school because I found that Tim's high school situation was completely different from my own. Instead of looking at it as wasted time, I took dual credit and AP courses which let me test out of college classes that gave me at least 20 credits before even starting college. I could have easily gone the other route of taking dumb classes to boost my grades but that's not fun.

    phd level mathematical economics course, higher level proof-based math class, totally fucked up programming class that isnt really hard but is FUCKED UP and time consuming, even the 'easy' class i took because i have to have another liberal arts requirement i decided to take a philosophy class which is higher level and cross-graduate course fill of philosophy majors and some philosophy grad students reading in depth shit about what how martin heidegger views he history of western metaphysics where the talks about a book i've never heard of before every other sentence.

    probably none
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    I never understood how taking an hour or two out of your day to post on a forum ends up ruining somebody's life.

    I just don't understand how this is a topic under serious consideration. Or is it not? Are all these posts written in such a heavily veiled sarcastic tone that I cannot decipher them? Is this some kind of satirical thread spoken in a facetious tone, parodying some non-existent party? Truly your humor is of such esoteric quality that a mere simpleton such as myself cannot understand it, Rayne.
