Feeling much better today! Barely any pain in the morning but I went to see World War Z and now I'm back to feeling pain again. Darn.

The Asian Grading System and a couple of random things...

I came across this a while back on facebook but am too lazy to post until now.
Here's my favorite version of Asian Grading System.

A= Average
B= Bad
C= Crap
D= Death
F= Freak (now, this I made up. For the real one it's a bad word - I'm sure we're all on the same page now)

And oh, my teacher once asked me "what about A+"? and so I replied him that A+, according to this system, is "above average" and because where I live there is no such thing as that, the most ANYONE can have is an "AVERAGE GRADE" and he proceeded to smirk, which was as miraculous as snowing in August (and I hope he's not reading this).

Of course we all know that Asian countries don't have LETTER GRADING SYSTEM as in A, B, C and such. Well... for a while they did. I'm not sure now but before I came here, elementary schools still use that system but it varies by TEACHER. Some gave A+ others didn't. Some accepted F others thought D- was the lowest grade. It was pretty messed up and so I hope they got rid of now. Or unified the system to the very least. Seriously, it's not that hard people!

I actually liked the ten point scale system. Which, for me at least, 9-10 is an A 8-7 is B and 6-5 C... and so on. Although I couldn't quite make out how a 5 would equate to a D- with my system since anything below 5 is considered an F, but I can careless since I'm not a very bad student myself to get those F often. Thank the lord.

But to be fair, I have to admit that the American grading system creates a HUGE advantage to students. Seriously, it's very hard to fail a class with such a wide range for letter grades. Don't get me wrong, I have to work my butt off to get good grades but really, it's not IMPOSSBLE!
so I REALLY REALLY think that anyone who live in America should be thankful. AMERICA IS AN IDEAL COUNTRY! No, really, it is! that's why I want to bitch-slap anyone who blames their teachers about how he/she doesn't know how to teach and blah blah like that. I know that not every teacher's way to teaching is easy to understand. My physics teacher lectured for 45 min and nobody in my class understand jack about what he's saying until we read the workbook.

But seriously, if you DO want to pass the class and have enough determination, YOU WILL! (I'm not sure you'll pass with a good grade, that depends on you but you will pass) Gosh, I wish my classmates are here. Better yet, I hope I could tie them all down and lecture them until their ears bleed! Those ignorant things!


How did I end up yapping about other people's business? Really, it seems like I can NEVER have a bloody post w/o digression, doesn't it? So I'm going to zip my mouth now before go to great length about another useless thing, which I'm sure I would. I'm about to do it now, see?

PS. Eating BROCCOLI with KETCHUP seems like a fine idea but trust me, it does not taste good at all, especially when the Broccoli is bloody bitter for whatever reason. Same principle applies to Celery. NASTY STUFF.

That is all. I hope.
