I am sick in bed this week, alas. But can still write so I chose a really dumb story today that illustrates clearly the uselessness of most ‘college’ courses and how these ‘schools’ are actually looting expeditions enslaving silly students who think they are very smart to take fake college courses little knowing, they are the one being cheated here as they cheat their way through school because they cannot ever escape their debts that ring up during these fruitless, useless classes! This young lady didn’t bother going to class until the final exam and got hopelessly lost while running around trying to find her final class.
Freshman videos her hilarious journey to her final exam | Daily Mail Online reported in England, of course. They love this sort of goofy story but I read it with rising horror and disgust because the young lady in this story is a primary example of how the ‘schools’ are manipulating young people, keeping them going to ‘classes’ while fleecing them like little lambs, this is fraud, big time as well as theft:
Ann Mark shared her harrowing story of trying to make it to her exam at the Austin campus, fraught with every pitfall imaginable. Ann explained in a hilarious Twitter video, that has amassed almost 8million views in three days, how she did not bring proper exam paper, found out she was in the wrong location – twice- and frantically ran smack into a window.
She goofed off all semester and then tried to ‘catch up’ and she didn’t really care all that much because the class was worthless and she missed nothing by not bothering to attend. This is a classic sign that the class should be eliminated. It was a ‘study your favorite MOVIE’ class!
‘For those of you who don’t know what a blue book is, apparently its what you need to write a frigging essay, you have to go and buy special paper, so that your professor can read it because apparently they’re illiterate whenever you write on notebook paper, okay.’
Note how she blames her fake teachers. The poor sap teaching this fake course is doing it to get money to pay for his/hers/its own ‘education’. No one fails this class so long as they write something semi-literate, of course.
So off Ann runs to buy her special exam paper. ‘So I sprint to the co-op, I get two blue books and I run back to the classroom. I’m sitting down in the front row, and I text my friend whose in the class.’ ‘Then I look around around some more and I’m like I’ve never seen these people before, and like okay I haven’t been to class in like a month but still I don’t recognize them,’ Ann confesses.
She barely recognizes her own group because she was virtually never there anyways.
‘So I ask this girl, ”This is RTF right? This is world cinema history?” and shes like ”No, this is physics.”
Note how she cusses as if she is a Teamster man with tattoos. I suppose she has tattoos, too.
‘Okay, then wheres my exam?’ Ann says into the camera, making possibly the exact face she made to the girl in physics. ‘So I type in Hogg building, and it says four minute walk… well it better be a one minute sprint… cause I got 60 seconds left!’ Ann says as she dramatically narrows the camera’s focus onto her face.
She is busy filming herself being stupid.
‘So I sprint to Hogg building and I write an amazing essay about how Napoleon Dynamite is an example of a great independent film in America, and I apologize.’
It gets much worse. The movie she wrote about is this silly ‘indie’ movie that is mildly popular with college kids. It also spawned a cartoon show! Here it is:
It is about going to school, of course. It doesn’t go into the hard details of school, it is a popularity fun movie where the youths outwit the adults and do dumb things and everyone yucks it up and teen angst is portrayed by 25 year old adults and is boring but amusing for kiddies just out of high school.
The movie is nothing original, it is a cookie cutter repro of a typical Simpson’s episode or one of the doofus Disney teen shows that bore the hell out of me. This piece of useless fluff is a topic for this movie class. This is embarrassing. When I was in college, we had a movie CLUB. We sponsored the showing of various films and one of our first guests was a California young man named Lucas and his robot film he made while in college (he won our accolades).
We chose our topics and arranges our shows and did all this…ourselves! And it didn’t cost us one dime, too. We petitioned the university for funds and wrote justification for this and guess what? This taught us how to do business! Some of the founders of this club ended up working in Hollywood! It was good.
Taking classes so one can avoid doing real school work, on the other hand, is lazy and stupid and teaches no real skills. The real skills are the actions one takes to make things happen, not ‘fill in the blanks/listen to lectures’ junk. Back in 1968, our debates about movies occurred in the Student Union, not a classroom. The organizational skills we learned while running all this was the real lessons.
The new university systems that does nothing but hand holding and forgiving students and pushing them onwards no matter how silly, insipid or stupid they are is not doing any good for the students, it is a literal rip-off. Professors are terrified of students reporting them if they push the students even slightly. The system is rapidly dying and is going to crash and burn utterly now that the STEM classes are being attacked by the radicals who want zero learning in schools just like in Mao’s China when they annihilated scholarship.
