The things we are taught in school are completely ridiculous...the worst part is how cripplingly redundant it is. I could read at about a sixth grade level in first grade and could already do long form division, yet in school my time was wasted with first grade level reading and adding for a year all day every day. I am not going to blame school for only ending up very smart instead of incredibly smart, I should have done more to find ways to learn on my own besides just reading books (fuck man I just wanted to play baseball in my free time), but what school was responsible for was teaching me that knowledge was so repetitive and simple that I simply no longer wanted to learn by 7th grade. Used to the world catered to the smart and gifted..now it caters to morons. tl;dr fuck stupid people.
