YOU'VE GOT THE PRINTER ATTACHMENT FOR THE UNIVAC 5000!!!
Ohhh, now you’re making Sheldon jealous! I’m sure it’s preferred method of communications is to drop punch cards (do not fold, spindle or mutilate) unless maybe it was updated to a Tractor Feed in the 70’s?

I wouldn't say it's a bad report card you're just consistently a "C" student. As Calvin said to Hobbes "Why put all the effort into getting an "A" when their happy enough that you're passing with a "C"."

 

Really an "A+" and even an "A" here is not worth all the effort to get.....a "C" is actually the smartest grade or a "B" if you study well enough! Lol😉!

lol, I was an honour roll student, grades much higher than "C" - and that was back in the days when you had to actually earn your grades, before grade inflation and low standards became the norm.

 

But certain subjects - English Literature (poetry, yuck) and Media Communications (write essays about dull documentaries and amateur student films) and Civics & Law (an opinionated bad teacher who wanted us to constantly write letters of complaint to local politicians) - they were not at all what I expected when I chose my electives. For some reason, the school system insists that you are not educated in the things you need to know (which for me was all physics, chem, math, tech, and compsci) unless you're educated in a bunch of junk you don't need to know (liberal arts, bah).

 

I've grown some appreciation of those topics (but not poetry, yuck) over the years, but my grades (and attendance) in those courses were far below the expected standard. I leave excellence in useless studies to those who want to be valedictorian and salutorian types, the ones who don't understand that you shouldn't let your schooling get in the way of your learning.

No fun allowed in the top contributors thread it can be sliced and diced by our own Beni Ha na chef while a Shady Sherif runs rampant rescuing the Jenny_jojo's of the old west.
