That UK/US grading system makes me so angry, especially because we don't even use +/- grades? I have no idea where they got that from because the system we used at A Level was something like A* - 90%, A - 80%, B - 70%, C -60%, and like you said if people are doing well they actually raise grade boundaries so less people actually achieve the top mark if everyone does well. (I know you know all of this just ranting because it makes me annoyed how our exams are apparently presented as piss easy)
I think it makes every Brit who sees that post angry and indignant that several hundred thousand people think that our education system is that simple and easy when half the grades in the list don’t even exist (like who the fuck gets + or -, it’s A or B, no pussyfooting round the mark, you suck or you don’t).
It makes everything seem like a joke when most of us try very hard to get the grades we do / did whilst at school, and how in some cases our entire grade can rely on two one hour exams and there’s nothing like extra credit to help boost grades.
It’s been near 15 years and that post made me fucking seethe. thank you, Katshi
I think I first figured out that adults, and academics could also be stupid when one of my middle school teachers told me I could be anything I wanted to be when I grew up.
Im not sure when the 20/20 vision for pilots thing filters into the umwelt of preteens, but I remember remember thinking she was a fool, being angry and unable to voice why or how, and then a crushing, and terrible sadness at the realisation that the people I was supposed to trust in to guide my life were lying to me out of misplaced faith, or outright ignorance of the world.
That was a bad day.
Going to get food.
In the meantime, do me a favor : Suggest topics for me to write about, or questions that beg for a longer response. or ask advice!
Thanks in advance,

friendly reminder that second-hand smoking damages the people around you by making them inhale carbon monoxide and carcinogenic chemical compounds linked to diseases such as lung cancer and childhood leukaemia and can cause pregnant women to lose their baby whereas second-hand eating isn’t even a thing (◡‿◡✿)
