  • I have got a Saturday detention for missing a regular detention, but I still have to serve the first detention IS THIS FAIR ?

    Best answer: Detention is like short term prison. It's punishing you by denying you your freedom. It's a way of bullying you into doing what they want you to do.

    Best answer: Detention is like short term prison. It's punishing you by denying you your freedom. It's a way of bullying you into doing what they want you to do. You're supposed to think it's easier for you if you do what they want first time.

    It's fair if you accept their authority to treat you thins way. If you don't accept it you have the right to an appeal. You also have the right to go to another school (but that would depend on your parents' approval & the other school accepting you).

    If you want to challenge the school authorities you could use phrases like bullying me from a position of power teaches me bullies get their own way. You could say bullying me like this makes me fear you, but not support you. You could say bullying you gets results, but not respect, respect has to b earned.

    Playing Devils Advocate is a good way of deciding if your treatment is unfair. What reasons would they give to justify doing this to you? Are they right to do what they did?

    You could suggest they talk with you & listen to you. maybe you have a valid point. I don't know. How was your behaviour bad? Who was it bad to? Who suffered as a result of it? What would happen if everyone behaved the same way? Would you like to be in a school where behaviour like yours went unchecked?

    If you feel this treatment is unfair you could raise it with your school council. And with your parents. If you have enough support you can challenge the ruling.

    I'm currently a senior and 17, and I'll be 17 up until like mid-semester of my first semester at college. I want to go to a school in a different city, but my parents are way overprotective. I'm not even exaggerating when I say they don't even let me go to our own backyard by myself. They would never even consider letting me move out for college. I really want this though. Not only is it a great school, I know I won't be happy staying back here. I need more freedom and independence. I'm tired of never going anywhere or doing anything just because they don't feel like it. I'm not irresponsible at all. Would it be possible for me to attend even without their support? I know them paying is an issue, but I think I could be able to qualify for some scholarships as I am currently valedictorian of my class. Thanks!

    Best answer: Something that's funky has a strong musical rhythm or beat, and a deep bluesy sound. You might practice some funky bass lines before auditioning for your school's jazz band.

    Funky tunes have some of the spirit of the 1960s-era music genre called funk, a branch of R&B that's influenced by soul and jazz music. Rhythm is so important in funky music that the drums and bass are emphasized, melody less so. Based on this cool music, funky also means "stylish" or "hip:" "Mom, those pants are totally funky." The word's original meaning, however, was "stinky," specifically when discussing the smell of aged cheese.

    I don't even want to go to college. My parents are making me so I can eventually go to medical school like they did. I was just wondering if it would be ok to just sleep during my classes? I'm not taking anything that hard just chemistry, biology, calculus 2 and 2 more courses 18 credits. I plan to go to class then sit in the back of the room and just sleep the whole time. I'll set an alarm for when class is over to be sure i wake up in time. Im sure I'll still be able to get a 4.0 with no problem. Is this ok?

  • What is the point of an IQ test, if they aren't even fully impartial?

    Recently I paid to take an IQ test and they slapped me with a disgusting score of 132. But it's so stupid how they tested it.

    Recently I paid to take an IQ test and they slapped me with a disgusting score of 132. But it's so stupid how they tested it. As CS graduate student, I solved all of their math and logic questions in a heartbeat. But I got stumped on questions that asked me stuff from topics that I'm unfamiliar with. That's so stupid. If they asked questions on algorithm analysis that fully tests one's reasoning skills like finding and reducing runtime, or mathematical proofing, I'm pretty sure my IQ would've hiked above 140 without breaking a sweat. Instead they've asked me a barrage of dumb questions that I couldn't answer purely from not being familiar with the subject. Intelligence quotient my ***.

    Yes I'm in 11th grade and there's a really awkward girl in my class. Without any doubt the most weird person I have ever seen and I wonder why she is like that. She has been in the class with me since 3 years and hasn't changed a bit since then. She doesn't talk to anyone, really never. She can't speak properly. Try to talk to her and she just looks down and mumbles some gibberish, it's so hard to understand any words. She doesn't respond when called on by a teacher. She blushes all the time for no reason. Her hands are shaking very often and she's constantly fidgeting with them. She always sits in the bathroom stall during lunch break. Also she can't look at people. If you try to look into her eyes or just her face she quickly turns her head away or looks down. Really weird hm? She also cries over trivial things quite often even though she must be like 17 already. Last week she started crying when a teacher raised his voice at her because she didn't answer and today another guy went to her desk and looked into her face on purpose to make her flinch. Everyone laughed which made her burst into tears. Why is she so weird? Do you think she is mentally ill?

    In freshmen year I was interested in Law so I took American Law as an elective, but now my interests have changed now that I am a sophmore. Now I am interested in business and am planning to take a business class. Is it bad that I took a law class in freshmen year instead of business since I'm majoring in business for college? Would that look bad in college? Or would it not matter since that was only freshmen year?
