    True. But even college in this country is a joke for the most part. When I studied physics, it was challenging, but when I switched my major to psyche, I swear I could count on one hand how many actual class sessions I went to per course (except the rare cases where attendance was mandatory and impacted my grade. I showed up for those classes and slept.) and I graduated with a 3.8 out of 4.0 so it's not like I scraped by or anything.

    The art schools I went to were pretty rough and had a high drop out rate from the pressure.

    I think kids get it pretty easy these days because a lot of the feel good PC police got into the school districts. But while our college education is top notch (some of the best in the world), or standard K-12 is fairly weak. I think we need to step up the science, math, and art education in primary school.
    It is absolute garbage that science is treated like an elective in most schools while literature of every freaking continent is considered words of the gods.

    Yeesh I hated school so much.

We may find that we ourselves start pumping out some better scientists and engineers if we do.
    Multi-variable calculus and differntial equations are what I consider "difficult" math. And those one's were the only times I ever had any types of problems with math.

    Yeah, don't get me started on psychology. That department is pathetic. I'm sure there are people who take it seriously, put in a lot of work, go to grad school, and really use what they learn. But I put psychology in the same basket as business. Pathetically easy subject which is taken by the vast majority of the student population because they can drink their way through college and still maintain a B average. As I said, educational standards need to be strengthened.

    If there was ever a class I totally sucked at it was art. I have all the artistic ability of a mentally-deranged syphilitic mountain goat.

    Story of my life. My AP World History teacher always gave me hell for never bringing a single book home. The only "homework" I did was stuff I could finish in class. I still got a B in that class, just to annoy him a little.
