This three week old video featuring a lecture excerpt by the late and very great British professor Alan Watts has gone viralviral. Watts says he would often ask his students what would they do after school if money was no object.
He explains that living your life based solely on money is a horrible idea, as you will just work a job you’re not interested in to make money to keep living the life your unhappy with. It’s a sad and endless cycle nearly everyone is stuck in.
Alan tries to persuade his students to pursue their dreams without worrying if being a poet ‘makes any money.’
It seems the more the federal government tampers with schools, the more issues arise. For years, parents and teachers have been complaining about the abhorrent federal school lunch program. Meat served to America’s youth doesn’t even meet the standards of McDonald’s and Burger King, two restaurants not famous for their high quality.
Now, with Michelle Obama at the reins, the lunch program is attempting to reverse the years of fattening junk food served at America’s public schools.
But it seems they have gone too far, capping meals for ALL students at 850 calories. No matter if you are a 200 lb wrestler, you receive the same meal as the scrawny math nerds. As usual, the broad brush of generalizing fails again.
At 9:40 in the morning, right when the test started, the famous beat to Gangster’s Paradisestarted to play on the PA system. Then one test taker jumped onto the table, and began to rap. Soon, four ‘students’ were rapping the hardships of an engineering degree.
Internet favorite story teller and animator Swoozie06 has returned with another entertaining story from his past. No one likes taking tests, but in middle school, Swoozie had a deal with his dad that he would get a 27 in TV in his room if he landed himself on the honor roll.
So when the only thing keeping him from his own beloved TV was a French test that he knew he was unprepared for, cheating became a necessity.
