It is an absolute shame when charts like that teach kids that mediocrity and half assed work is considered "success". It is not. This is why kids perform so poorly coming out of school. They are taught crap like this. Sub-par performance still gets them a gold star from enablers.


FEWER does not equal Success.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Jay, I am going take it out of your Social Security check.
You've hit upon the only solution for the mess we're in imho. People who voted for Bush should be put to hard labor for the rest of their lives to help us pay off the debt he's run up. People who voted for him twice should have their entire families put on the chain gang.

Secret ballot, you say? Oh, but you underestimate our 'intelligence' services and redoubtable powers of domestic surveillance! We can work it out
