OK....I'm afraid. very afraid.

How did this girl even get in to college?

I wonder if this kind of thing goes on in European universities?

I'm pretty sure it does not in Asian schools.

It makes me wonder why foreign students bother coming to America. Maybe it's because we're easy.

This for sure doesn't happen in Asian schools. A buddy of mine teaches english overseas in both China and Japan 10 months out of the year. He teaches all age levels from 3rd grade to college. He always brings home tons of pictures and videos and I am always amazed by how different it seems from my experiences growing up in American schools. The students have so much respect for their teachers and each other. I am interested to know if anyone has an experiance like this from a European school. Sadly, a large number of Americans are being raised without knowledge of manners. Her mother probably acted this way.

Strange how the world leading scientists, inventors and innovators over the last few hundred years are usually European and sometimes Asian.

That sort of thing in most European schools would get you kicked out of school.

I'm not even sure what was going on but that is definitely a situation that required a taser. You can't go around making such a public disturbance, they'll cuff you and get you a psych evaluation. Especially in a class room, now with some drunk ladies in a bar I can see that being more acceptable but please keep it under control and pretend to be adults.

The professor was talking about evolution. The girl asked him "why is evolution killing black people?"

He didn't know how to answer and that pissed her off.

Well I'm happy to be stuck here in Denmark. We've got very high quality education and a high percentage of the population has some sort of college education.

I'm currently in the process of getting a Cand. Merc. in Teaching and Pedagogy which is 5 years of school beyond highschool

Best part about it all though - it's all FREE!
