“Grades don’t measure intelligence and age doesn’t define maturity.”
If you disagree with this quote, then I hope you die in a fucking fire. Slowly. With your skin slowly slipping off your body. Consciousness maintained until the very last piece of flesh that falls off.
I am getting sick and tired of relatives praising my other relatives or family members who get high grades. I mean, come on, fuckwits, grades don’t measure how good you are at something.
Do you know what you’re good at when you’re always aiming to get high grades? You’re good at being very, very, compliant.
Grades don’t mean shit if the only reason you have that is because you have complied with everything your who-told-you-that-this-person-is-smarter-than-you-professor required from you. There are, however, professors which have very good methods of testing out how good people are, but the majority is just shit.
I am bringing this up because I have an extremely smart engineering classmate – a full scholar and a regular student with relatively high grades. When asked with simple questions, he answers by the book, which sometimes gets freakishly long and in the process misses the point of the simple question. How fucking stupid is that? This happened a while back which I wrote about here. This reminds me of something: 3 Idiots. A lot of people who watched it didn’t get the joke and that further lessens my faith in humanity. God fucking damn it, guys.
There are also the memorize types, which are even stupider. I don’t have to explain this because it’s pretty much self explanatory. Here’s a brief overview on what typically happens.
- Exams dates close in.
- Memorize entire book.
- Hope what they’ve read appears in the questionnaire in…question form.
A slight change could have ruined the whole world for them.
So, all in all, memorizing shit to get good grades is pointless and stupid. You’re not smart. You’re just very very good in complying with people who are probably even stupider than you.
Lastly, please note that I am not encouraging that you do not comply with shit. Just don’t be a fucking grade-whore. Or whatever. I don’t have the proper word for it.
