It's the most holly jolly time of the year

Alright, so a lot of people have been talking about this "attack on Christmas", like that wack-job, Bill O'Reilly. Basically, they're taking the whole politically correct bullshit, x-mas, holiday trees, happy holidays, things that imply Christmas, without actually using the word, and calling it an attack. Well, today I'm starting, the Official War on Christmas. That's right. Everywhere I go this time of year, I feel like I'm trying to eek my way through one of Rush Limbaugh's arteries. People have been complaining about this insanity we call Christmas for years, yet everybody just keeps going along with it. Why? It's time for a better world people, and one step is the removal of this vile holiday.

Now don't go starting calling Christmas trees, holiday trees as part of your attack on Christmas. We're not a bunch of rebellious teenagers here, we've gotta be productive. But if that's what you prefer to call it, go ahead, I could give a shit what word you use for an underdeveloped pine tree.

Also, don't start bashing Christmas because it's a disguised pagan holiday, either. Who cares. What did pagans ever do to you?

Now I know there's a lot of people who go through this because they want their kids to experience the same happy memories that they had. So go ahead. Give your kids happy memories, and make it special. You don't have to zombetize yourself every year in order to do this. And for those of you who want to celebrate the birth of Christ, celebrate the birth of Christ. Set up a pre-pubescent pine in the living room if you want.

But don't complain if you're just gonna keep going through with it the way it is. You're the one who's deciding to do it, so stop. Don't do it. Doooon't do it. Don't make me turn this car around. You're just gonna keep doing it aren't you? Ah well. Enjoy.

Exam Time

Man, these days I'm trying to complicate the spelling of things. When I was writing the subject line for this, I couldn't think of how to spell "exam". I kept wanting to spell it "exame" and "examn", so I finally found the word exam, and I was like, "duh, could it be simpler?" Then, last night, I was writing an e-mail, and I spelled "teacher", as "teature". I was like "Wait, that doesn't look right". So I had to think about it, "Oh yeah, teacher, someone who teaches." It was kind of wierd.

Anyways, here are some more links. I thought they were funny.

I love public education

I just posted this on the ********* forum, thought I'd use it to revitalize my blog.

I agree. Public education is a joke. When I was in highschool, I was lazy, didn't care, rarely did my homework, and when I did, I copied out of the back of the book. Now that I've been out for a while and I know what I want to do, and am choosing to do it myself, I'm working on my PHD and I'm doing great. I know all the public service people would hate me because they want to hear, "Work hard in school if you want to amount to anything." but what happens in high school means jack shit to the rest of your life. I knew people who were in the advanced IB programs and today they're just your average joe "workin for the man". Their grades and all their advanced programs were meaningless.

As far as the content of public education, that's a joke as well. Not that there's anything wrong with learning algebra or history(I myself enjoy history), but this is not fundamental shit that people need to be learning at the beginning of life. What people need to learn is how to handle their emotions, their bodies, their minds. What's the point of teaching the periodic table when so many people don't even know how to manage their lives without anti-depressants.

And when kids get bored and have more interesting things going through their minds while they're sitting there, they're given drugs to turn them into zombies for the whole day.

People are so programmed to believe in the importance of this education system. But then again, that's really all this education system is, programing people how to fit into society, how to impress their second parents, after they outgrow their first parents.

If you want to teach people, take them out into the world and let them actually experience being alive. Don't pack them into little rooms where all they're gonna learn is how to live inside their heads. Then, when they actually know themselves and what they want out of life, they can choose what they want to study. 

Note from the distant future: Do good in school...
