I would like to know from those of you what subjects in High School that were (and are) totally worthless in your daily life but were forced to take anyway? Some of my examples…
(P.E.) I had to take this crap in 9th grade. There was no education per se, just running around the basketball court and what not. The man who “taught” it was the basketball coach, who really was an asshole. What I hated was on Fridays we had to play dodge ball. I hated that shit. The last thing I want is to be hit in the head by a kick ball.
(English literature) Two things. I read on another string here about Old English. Well, my 11th grade teacher made us memorize this crap from Beowulf. I have no idea what Beowulf was about because it was written in GERMAN.
Shakespeare. This sorry 16th century asshat writer has been the bane of High School students for the past 400 years. When I was in 10th grade, I had to memorize a sonnet, which is 14 GD lines!! Why? Well, I didn’t learn it and got a zero. I feel some of you will avail that he was the greatest writer in the English language, but if I am interested in his archiac stories, I would happily read them.
PE and Englis Lit were my bitches. I could add that bastard course “Art History”, but that was in college, where one really learns some worthless shit (to make one well rounded).
What is everybodys thoughts, current students more than welcome.
