Don't kill me, it wasn't my idea.

Talk about me and how awesome I am here. Or my massive, planet-dwarfing ego. One or the other.

Depends on what planet you're dwarfing, bro. If it's Venus you're not really doing much...

Okay, you asked for it. Mods take notice: he asked for it literally.

You worthless piece of shit, what makes you think that anyone with a degree of pride in themselves is compensating for something? Not everyone is a pathetic weakling mentally, as much as people like you and Christianity have conspired to make them that way. No, anyone who believes that confidence translates to weakness is themselves weak and incapable of handling mastery and strength; unworthy, that is, of wielding any degree of power, and unworthy of any admiration. Some are simply born with a sadistic rather than a masochistic instinct: instead of being like the pack animals that comprise the vast majority of humanity, happy to kneel and take abuse, be raped every day by their master, they rise up, destroy their masters, and fashion themselves as the inheritors of the earth, as their own God. I don't need some father figure to protect me; I don't need anyone, because everyone I come into contact with, whether they like it or not, is being coldly weighed up by me for usefulness. You accuse me of being weak: you're wrong. Once upon a time I was weak like the masses, weak because I considered 'goodness', 'morality', 'justice' to be the ultimate values. I was wrong; of those only justice is valid, and justice is just another word for sanctified revenge - revenge sanctified by the plebeian masses.

I do not need to beg to be sanctified, approved of, condoned, loved, valued; I do not need to kneel servilely and request from my 'betters' that I receive their favour, because I have no betters. What I say is correct; what I do is my own choice; my own standard of morality is the only correct one. If the world is cruel to me, I will overthrow it or destroy it to make myself happy. If the world is cruel to others - what do I care? Let them burn, bleed and perish even as they eat cake.

Once I found the suffering of others horrific; now it amuses me.

Pfft if you knew me you wouldn't say that.

Apparently I'm too unique for the gifted and talented program at my college. >__<
To quote: "Normally the problem we have is making students show more interest in their field of study. But you have too unique an approach; your academic marks don't seem to come anywhere near reflecting your intelligence as expressed in conversation, yet you're much better read and clearly think a lot more than most of the students who come through the program."

ffs what

Even if you don't agree with them, your academic marks are supposed to reflect your intelligence. I don't know what the cause of your apparently low grades but if that's the measuring stick they're gonna use idk what to say.

But COULD you be getting A's? It sounds like you could but I can't be certain. If you can and just aren't than that kinda displays a lack of drive or commitment, even if you're actually smart enough.

Don't hate plz.

07-14-2011, 08:40 PM
Man, I would do so much better if grades directly reflected my intelligence.

Tay, it may differ from course to course but to get an A is around 80&#37;? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Well that means one of two things: He's not brilliant in EVERYTHING, just most things, or he's not putting enough effort in his studies. But that's not my point anyway.

My point is if you're a universally "gifted" individual and don't have straight A's, either the grading system is bogus at the school or you aren't putting in the effort.

Of course you don't. I just assumed you would have some better idea. And without at least seeking or considering possible alternatives, sure you can criticize, but it isn't worth much.

And I'm a great writer, thank you very much.

Because Brave New World, 1984, and Lolita, all of which raise objections without solutions (Brave New World to utopianism in general, 1984 to Stalinism in particular, Lolita to the treatment of paedophiles as evil rather than ill) aren't "worth much", right?

EDIT: Not that I don't have ideas, but I think criticising the modern education system is more productive than preaching a particular replacement for it; it breeds discussion rather than being about "is Delphinus's better or worse than the current one?"

Yeah, I think my reply actually should have been: What's so bad about the modern education system? Of everything, I think the grading system's pretty good. When it comes to objective stuff (factual history, math, science) then if you know it, you should be able to do it on the test. For the subjective stuff like English, that's harder, but grammar and vocab are there.

It's the teaching philosophy that's bogus. What is being taught and how it's being taught are just completely out of wack. Too much stuff being studied that most students will never use in higher ed or their daily life.

Delphinus
07-18-2011, 05:15 PM
Because what the education system should be instilling is not just scraps of information prepared in a certain way. Those are easy enough to acquire for oneself from books etc. What it should be teaching is how to learn, which is another thing altogether and something most schools leave the kids to try and figure out for themselves. Critical thinking is far more helpful to people than knowing that xyz happened in 1023AD - methods to handle that information rather than just information. Taken to its worst extreme, education that relies on the individual accepting everything at face value leads to a huge quantity of people who are easily manipulated by the media.

This is the same reason why I think it's a real pity that applications to philosophy courses are declining by the year.

Without the learning of learning on one's own, large egos like yours or mine shall be produced nevermore, as the individual has not been left to their own devices of true ingenuity - it again becomes static learning. That is, unless, the system works the same as our own and most children are left uninterested in schooling.
