That I didn't do good enough is probably my only real answer.

eh i feel like math is a good way for the adults to weed out the bright kids from the not so bright ones. we all remember those kids in 2nd grade who couldn't perform simple math. safe to say they aren't graduating at the top of their class or running any fortune 500 companies.

unless your profession demands it sure you probably won't ever have to apply pythagorean theorem in your daily life, but again it's an exercise in testing students and seeing who is capable of solving more complex equations.

I use that theory every day just about. Mainly finding resultant vectors.

Re: What is 1 unpopular opinion you have on education?

At a fundamental level, being taught to open your mind to different modes of thought and possibility' and the methods needed to truly study something and write reports and papers is something more valuable than it's cracked up to be.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

"He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

"Covfefe"

Measuring “brightness” by one field alone is ignorant. Plenty of intelligent people struggle with math.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

Chess should be mandatory for all students for at least one year (exemptions for learning disabilities obviously).
