Wanna know how I know you're amurrcin?
Don't you get it anon? We're the generation to witness the grand show.
We're the ones...who will get to watch it all fall.
when i compare the secondary school maths books my father had to those I had, I can say that what they learnt back then was on a far higher level. education started going downhill from the 70s on. hippie scumbags wanted to emancipate everyone and everything and allow stupid people to enter university. no kid left behind and all that nonsense... pff
going to sleep sick of it
>Most intelligent generation
This was history homework in 1935
this is that type of education you get in a third world country. they make you remember ridiculous amounts of texts in a short period of time, and most people still forget. it's inefficient.
I can't remember the name of the study, but a bunch of psychologists in yankland compared IQ results from all races and classes from the present day, and 1920 (while adjusting the results for obvious reasons and shit). And they actually found out people in the 1920's had higher IQ's (even when adjusted for factors) and had stronger cognitive and memory abilities than 21st century people.
>I know how to tweet
>I can post a picture on Facebook
>I can use a phone app
Wow, I'm a tech genius. That's literally what kids think nowadays, because that's what they are being told at school. Today's education consists of stroking the ego of children (every kid is special; everybody is intelligent in his or her own way) and priggish moralising (discrimination = bad; white people = privileged blablabla).
>It's hard for them not to feel smart when the adults in their lives can barely manage that.
Even ugly lower class 55-year-old women post their pictures on Facebook. Even ghetto Negroes post and spam on Twitter. It doesn't require any intellect whatsoever, only interest and desire to use those things.
This is very true. I remember when I was retarded in elementary in math and my teacher straight up came to me and said that I don't have what it takes but in a matter of fact way, he wasn't rude. Of course it made me angry but that's when I decided to spend alot of my time on working on my math skills and I started seeing very good results by the time I hit middle school working my way through the 70s, then the 80s, and finally 90s and my knowledge led me through all my highschool math classes and same thing in college.
We need more teachers like that. Who push you and aren't afraid to tell you where you really are in your learning.
>always disorganized and poor focus
>teachers were always assholes
>still shit at school
>get prescribed adhd meds in highschool
>suddenly my grades shoot up instantly
but i'm sure that i would have done much better if my teacher just calmly told me i was a retarded faggot that would never make it in life
They also start teaching kids calculus in middle school. The people I've met from India and Africa have told me that they were years ahead when they moved here as kids.
Instead we have to teach kids to feel.
Compare a pre 70s maths (or biology or history, it doesn't matter) textbook at secondary school level with one of today. You will be in for a shock. I don't know what the fuck happened in the 70s but they started messing things up in a lot of ways and it's only getting worse.
This is the test you needed to take before going to high school.
>tfw high school used to be the same as college
This must be bait but I'll go ahead.
How can you be the most intelligent generation and at the same time be the lost generation? Intelligence has a survival instinct. As a generation if society has no need for you and you don't find a niche for yourself you aren't lazy you are fucking dumb and going to be eliminated from the gene pool
>OP makes a great thread highlighting the bleak world our generation lives in
>The only thing anyone cares about is his "smartest generation ever" comment
I loathe those who see themselves as wise, intellectual and intelligent in their own eyes. I always have and I always will. Show me a single person who has ever lived who considers themselves intelligent and is not an egomaniacal fedora tipping shithead.
