Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale:
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
F- 59 and under
oh wow that is fucked up
why do they skip E in america
There’s an E in other grading scales?
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
Saving THIS for future reference.
#is that true?
Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.
Well in France it’s :
20 - 18 : A
17 - 15 : B
14 - 11 : C
10 - 0 : D
In Alberta it goes like
90-100 : A+
77- 79: B+
73- 76: B
Oh good lord that’s Alberta? Last time I was in high school here there were 7 less grades…
0-50: D.. which was a fail
I FEEL SO OLD
So I’ve been thinking off all those “I need feminism because” signs…
I’ve been looking for an oilfield job for a month now. I am fucking SICK of getting phone calls asking for my husband “Mr. Bryan Arnt”. No, my boyfriend’s name is Taylor, and he did NOT apply for the job. He also has years less oilfield experience than me, less driving experience and a lower class of driver’s license, about 15 less safety tickets (plus half of his are fakes), less applicable skills, and like every other male out there he can’t take a clean piss test like I can, but guess what happened to him yesterday? A buddy’s dad walks into our house and offers him a dream out of town oilfield job. 20 days on, 20 days off. $500 day rate. A company vehicle.
I am this close to cutting my own tits off and attempting to grow a fucking dick. The worst part is - I’m $20,000 in debt and desperately need a good paying job and have been job searching every day.. he’s just considering this offer because he’s getting “bored” of his already well paying job.
I’m not sure anyone will ever love me enough to want to marry me
Hey look, a first kiss video with queer people, people of color, and a better body type representation.
Also, they aren’t actors/models! Real people!
Ahhh.. Dude in the beanie HOT

actually all i ideally want out of life is to date a 30 year old divorcee who has lots of money and emotional issues over his ex wife and just wants to take me shopping in paris :)
Lol, divorced people don’t have money
you know tumblrs not an a+ community when you hesitate to post your own opinions on your own personal blog
maybe if ur hesitating to post things because you don’t want people to get mad at your opinions, you have shitty opinions and u know it
that is literally an example of op’s point
Wait, what happened that made you say something about deleting/unfollowing people? I've followed you.... for a while (I don't remember how long), and I'd def miss you if you were gone.
People are behaving like total dicks on here, not towards me personally, but in general.They can’t appreciate anything and try to pick flaws about every. single. thing. No matter how good the thing is. It’s never good enough. It’s completely hypocritical.
What made me think of this drastic descision is the reaction to Jared winning the Oscar for best supporting actor. He’s a wonderful actor, and a wonderful person, and really the only one who included something political in his speech. He always does. Whenever he presents an award or receives one. He always thinks of people in the Ukraine or Haiti or anywhere else, he thinks of people suffering from AIDS and thinks of people who “feel injustice for being who you are and who you love”.
But it’s not good enough. Apparently he doesn’t deserve his award because he’s a cisgender man who played a transgender woman. Apparently a transgender person should have gotten the Oscar. Maybe a cisgender man shouldn’t play a transgender person at all? I don’t know. But what seemed to have caused the most fuss is that he didn’t mention transgender women in his speech. Can you believe it? Scandalous!
Except he did. He just didn’t mention them specifically. But the way that he did it, he included EVERYONE, not just transgender women.
I don’t care what people think, call me a whiny brat, but tumblr treats white people, cis people, men and heterosexual people terribly. Nothing they do seems to please them, everything they do is wrong. And god help you if you are white, cis, heterosexual AND a man.
Lets all just take a moment and pray for all the poor bastards in Saskatchewan, Canada.. Its -67 there today, and for all you Americans out there that is a brisk -89 in Fahrenheit.. And you all though Ragnarök didn’t happen.
Drunk.. Alone.. And no idea where anyone went..
As soon as the Coca-Cola commercial (where “America the Beautiful” is sung in a variety of languages) ended, I went straight to Twitter and Coca-Cola’s Facebook page.
Angry White People did not disappoint.
Welcome, Angry White People…we’ve been expecting you.
