I found something on tumblr once that goes kinda like this (sorry, I don’t remember what it was exactly):
me: What are taxes and how do I pay them?
school: Shh. Learn to solve the quadratic equation.
And now I have proof. This is probably the most brilliant argument I have ever seen against our schooling system.
I’m trying to memorize it, so at any time in my life I can use this against other people and see how many counterarguments they can come up with. You know, the normal stuff.
