    an english major, an art major, and a film major walk into a bar

    they all get ridiculed for pursuing what they love

    plot twist: together they create the most dramatically intricate and visually compelling pieces of cinema the world has ever seen and make a cultural milestone and also a billion dollars

    Alternate punchline: After people find out that they’re really talented and cool they still get asked to work for free.

    This is still something we need to know about. The system has failed.

    what about interning at the united nations?

    wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

    Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

    I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

    You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

    Average American Grading Scale:
    A+- 97-100
    A - 94-96
    A- - 90-93
    B- 80-89
    C- 70-79
    D- 60-69
    F- 59 and under

    And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
    A - 100-93
    B - 92-85
    C - 84-78
    D - 77-70
    F - 69 and below

    Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

    No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

    UK Grading Scale

    100-70: A

    69-60: B

    59-50: C

    49-40: D

    Below 40: F

    next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

    i’m gonna remind you

    that our “average” is your “A”

    Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
    Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.

    And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.

    I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day

    File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.

that’s actually really, really creepy.

Yeah, basically.

I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages. 

There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.
