I am 14, and I am learning Logic.
Now tell me, can you tell me what the Four Statements of Logic are? Can you tell me what the Mental Acts are, and what there Verbal Expressions are? Do you know what Univocal Terms are, Equivocal Terms, and Analogous Terms? Do you know what the Copula is?

No, I cannot. I have never taken a logic course; I can't do what you can do. Can you do what I can do? Can you describe to me in detail the minute similarities and differences of Albert Camus' and Jean-Paul Sartre's respective philosophies of absurdism and existentialism, where and when their histories interconnected and the politicking that was involved in one's fall from the intellectual community's grace (quite unfairly, I might add)? Can you summarize and analyze their major works, such as "The Myth of Sisyphus," The Stranger, Nausea, and Being in Nothingness? Can you tell me exactly where Thoreau condensed his account in Walden, or what exactly Emerson meant by the statement "I become a transparent eyeball"? Can you pontificate upon the genre-mixing (and genre-breaking!) riddled throughout Melville's masterpiece, and why his defiance of literary norms was so important? Can you write a treatise on Fitzgerald's unavoidable ambiguity, both in his works and his life, and how the two intertwine (or about his possible links to Baum!)? Can you read The Canterbury Tales in it's original Middle English, or Beowulf in its original Old English? Can you tell me all about Brechtian theatre, and why something like The Caucasian Chalk Circle is so different than traditional Western theatre? Can you talk about Noh or Kabuki theatre and list in detail the differences between the two, and their histories of their formation? Can you describe the tenants of Zaporah's improv method, and the exercises utilized therein? Can you give pointers on proper diction, or act in the Alexander technique? What's the proscenium arch? What's a 'leg' onstage? Or a 'gel'? Can you describe how Havel's plays helped to bring about the demise of a tyrannical regime?

Can you live? Can you love?

Education is all just diffusionary absorption. Fields, focus, manner: all these things are irrelevant and personal and to bandy them about in airs of superiority is absurd and stupid, and makes one lose sight of the the important things in this world (HINT: It's not logic. It's not literature or theatre either).

I went to private school for my primary and secondary education. You are homeschooled. Sooner than it seems, we'll both be out in the workforce, living our lives, our formal education behind us.

You're not better than I. I'm not better than you. We're just people, and our schools were just schools.

...In summary, I suggest that everyone drop the arrogant nonsense and bickering, or I'll personally tell my pal Kex to close this topic. People aren't being nice in here, and we ought to either be nice or not talk at all.

TtW: You mean the word "owned? Yeah, I thought about that too, but it Smeag's response was a good one (you have to admit it) and Sev was kind of asking for it. tongue.gif

Yes, it was a good point, if presented in a less than appropriate way (harhar.gif to Jinzo). Although whether he deserved it or not... What topic was this in? confused1a.gif

It was from a topic about homeschooling in COT. Click the little red boxes in the quote tags for a link. tongue.gif

QUOTE(bohrok invasion)
Apparently 92% of teens have moved onto rap, and 8% of teens still listen to "real" music...so I guess that means there are absoloutely no deaf teenagers.
I also look forward to the day when chickens can travel freely without having their motivations questioned...
QUOTE(Xarok in the Pics of Yourselves Topic)

Mmmm... bacon goes great with hypocrisy!
