    This is America's future...We're screwed.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    No we're not. It's just that I do not take interest in subjects like Spanish, English, most history, some sciences... but in subjects that do matter to me (comp sci, some science, a little of history...) I am not lazy and apathetic with. I think a lot of people feel that way. Why spend time in something that you dont give a damn about and will never need in the future (like every ..........ing Charles England has had...)

    Personally I wouldn't do it. Although, it would be tempting just to have the test as a study guide. You are not going to learn anything by just memorizing the answers but if you spent time trying to understand the material then it could be beneficial. You could just do this with a book though rather than stealing a test so why do it? It's not worth the risk at all. Especially at the college level.

    1. You would be expelled.
    2. You would lose all tuition money you have paid up to this point.
    3. You would have a really really hard time being accepted at any other school with that on your record.

    Oh and by the way, most teachers that I have worked for at my school save the last version of the test they gave. They then pull up the old version and change it prior to giving it again. Usually they do it just a day or two before the exam. That would suck wouldn't it

    Let's say it's a more of a book report than a test, what would be your take on this?

    Is this a hypothetical question, or what?

    You're right, you shouldn't have to learn those subjects. You don't have the type of mind required to appreciate their value.

    Yeah, learning the subjunctive in spanish is a really important and interesting subject. Where would I be without it? I guess you're right. And what would I do if i didn't know the capital of Somalia and what the Lytic and Lysogenic cycles do?

    My point exactly; some people have a more unified understanding of life where each of those individual elements is significant. You don't have the ability to appreciate that. It's not your fault, but don't believe that you are the absolute judge of a subject's value.

    Then I say read it and do your report... It's not like a touchy-feely book'll make you start feeling like redecorating, if you catch my drift. You're going to have to do a lot of things in life that you don't like. Put your head down and go through it or sit and watch it go by, but don't complain that just because a book's recommended by someone you don't like, that you don't wanna do it.
