Subject at school / college

Recommended Posts

I did Politics A-Level and hated every minute of it. It wasn't that I couldn't understand it, but because I was so uninterested I never tried to. History of Political Thought - Marx, Rousseau, Madison etc. Life does not get any more dull.

Tenses in French. Granted probably not that easy, but toooo tough for me. They should all learn English tbh. Rule Brittania and all that.

My teacher was fond of

 

"The Cat Sat On An Orange And Howled Horribly"

 

More confusing than helpful tbh, took me 6 months to work out it only works in grid form..

Aye. I did Spanish at school, and I was alright, apart from the f*cking tenses

 

o as a aimos ais an, o es e eimos eis en. We used to get taught some silly saying to help us remember. 'I talk to you about he or she, but you are too polite to answer back.'

 

Never worked.

I'm wondering, in case I break into some Spanish or french... may I use the familiar tu form with you people? Instead of usted? Because I think usted is gonna be a little too formal for this crowd. I feel already I've established the kind of rapport than I can, I can jump into the tu form with you! That quickly! I'm taking a tu liberty with you, I'm gonna use the tu form, and that's it! You can't talk me out of it. You know, Caesar used the tu form with Brutus, even after Brutus stabbed him. He said "et tu Brute," and I think that's a little too informal when someone's trying to assassinate you.

Are you sure - what about accountancy? :razz:

 

Subjects I have struggled with have mainly been mathematical. However, I don't think they are particularly easy:

Calculus (especially advanced integration)

Imaginary numbers

Mechanics

Long division of polynomial equations (ffs!)

 

Anatomy was rock too but for entirely different reasons. Everything else has been a piece of piss. :drinks:

Rationalising denominators of conjugate compound surds is far simpler than it sounds.

Piece of piss tbh.

Can a piece of piss ever be irrational in the first place?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christ! I've descended as low as shit maths jokes. :razz:

 

I'm off to swim with a stingray.

That is piss easy but you could not get to grips with (not talking about the school slag)

 

Me it was (and still is) fractions :razz:  I'm shite at them.

That sounds a lot like the History theory modules I have to do for my History degree. They drive me mad. I find Postmodernist theory the most annoying, infuriating and contradictory load of shite. Postmodernists are a bunch of arseholes, but even some of the more traditional theories like Marxism are dull.

At our school it was Sex On Holiday Can Always Help The Old Age. :drinks:

 

For me it was simultaneous equations. Absolutely could not do them for ages and always made my sister do my homework if it involved them, then one day it just clicked and I found them piss easy after that. :razz:
