I was buying coffee at my favourite cafe and the woman working the register was like “you’re such a friendly person, whenever I see you in line I know I’m in for a pleasant experience” and now I feel great.

As a barista, thank you for being that kind of person. We love seeing you, and we’ll do anything we can to make your day brighter because you’ve already made ours brighter just by showing up.

Every time I go downstairs to the laundry room, this pigeon tries to seduce me.

"we have incompatible genitals" is now my favorite excuse.

I love this so hard.

One of the best things I’ve ever seen

The interesting thing is that a lot of prolifers would agree with this

Y’know, yeah, do that. That’s perfect.

Best solution I’ve heard of anyway, this is such an insanely controversial topic and nothing makes anyone happy. This looks like the closest thing to a compromise that I can see… Obviously there would need to be exceptions and stipulations to the rule thought out extremely carefully, but yeah.

Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

Average American Grading Scale:
A+- 97-100
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
F- 59 and under

And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below

Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

UK Grading Scale

100-70: A

69-60: B

59-50: C

49-40: D

Below 40: F

next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

i’m gonna remind you

that our “average” is your “A”

Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.

And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.

I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day

File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.

In my Aviation Maintenence course there was no such thing as getting a D for a class. Our grading scale was:

100-91 - A
90-81 - B
80-70 - C
69-00 - Failed the class

And if you got less than an 80 on the final exam you automatically flunked the class. I got an 81 on my last exam… *whew!*

Now for us it kinda makes sense to have a stricter grading scale. If we pass this course, it means we get to fix airplanes… Those kinda fall outta the sky and kill anywhere from 1 to 400 people if we screw up. But it’s still a good example that America is crazy tight on their grading system, to the point of insanity when it comes to specialized fields.

Decided to do a little sketch about human-Fluttershy … well, not head canon exactly, but just how I would draw her if it was my job to design her. 

ya know, i actually never really thought of this. i just kinda viewed fluttershy as an animal lover rather than a animal worker. super neat
