Yep, you're definitely right about thatI'm thinking English boarding schools and Detroit public schools are a little different.
They don't teach us anything good here... You can actually apply your knowledge of hot-wiring a car to a real-life situation. Now, how the hell am I going to apply Jane Austen's novels or some idiot's poems to such a situation? You might say that geography is useful, but I really couldn't care two elephants what the difference is between Hoyt's model and Burgess'.
I just hate learning things which I will not be able to use in the future. Reading Linux documents, learning how to disassemble a paintball gun in under 5 minutes, learning complex Mathematics - this I can all use in real life, and this I could quite possibly apply to a future job or interest. But English Literature? Pfft
And, before you answer that, I know why I learn it, and I accept it... I just hate learning things which I 1. am completely uninterested in, 2. don't give a rat's arse about, and 3. will never EVER use in the future.
That is all
