I actually quite liked the ending because it kept the story open. Allowing us to decide who Harima got with in the end haha. At least i like to think that. xD   
   
Hmm.. if Harima actually did get with one of the many possible girls in the story, School Rumble would probably lose a lot of fans...

It's not unique, but you're still successful. So long as your happy with that, what really matters? And I sincerely hope that all of my fellow Funnyjunkers find success in their own lives or continue to be successful with what they're already doing.
#127 to #76 - cptnigelofwolf (01/09/2013) [-]
I am succesful enough to have a roof over my head, a car that works, and and a job that pays enough money to eat buffalo wings and beer at least once a week. Non of that **** beer either, Im talking high brow yeungling. Sounds like happiness and success to me!
#106 to #76 - broorb (01/09/2013) [-]
I agree, it's not a bad point and not a bad route in the slightest. I guess I'm one of the folk who are always looking for more in things? I dunno. I'd rather be my own boss than be useful but expendable.
User avatar #77 to #76 - ludislavonac (01/09/2013) [-]
Also, such a job probably pays well

Well then, not saying you don't need a decent education to get a good life, but it sure as hell helps you to get a good job. And it's generally a good thing to have clever people working around you as well.
#105 to #73 - broorb (01/09/2013) [-]
Totally, yeah. That's one route and it's not a bad one, at that. If you don't mind being dependent on the web you're entangled in, that is - some find it claustrophobic, and I suppose I'm one of them, hahah.

As I say, it's how I was brought up, how my school dealt with things. We were all told we were clever at some point or another. Some chose to believe it, some didn't. Those who believed it never supposed otherwise, and that's what I'm illustrating here.

I don't get it. How is this a bad thing? In the comic, the guy is clearly happy and contempt with life, they all are. And why are there so many posts saying the school system is retarded because gives them confidence and hope to succeed? Whats wrong with that? They are children, they are developing, if you say "You aren't special or clever, you'll probably fail", they obviously will fail because no one ever believed in them. If we go with YOUR theory OP, we should stop giving them confidence and hope and live in a society of hopeless failures and wait for humanity to die off. False hope or not, it doesn't hurt to try.

confidence to be a good little drone and sit in your own little box set in place like a gear in a machine
god dammit thats an achievement, being a mindless machine part

what schools and parents SHOULD be doing is telling kids theyre clever and boost up their confidence to be something they WANT to be, not tell them what to be
User avatar #43 to #38 - EdwardNigma (01/09/2013) [-]
Well **** , our education systems differ, because I was always told to be what I want to become, given confidence that with determination I can achieve that, all that **** .
User avatar #52 to #43 - konradkurze (01/09/2013) [-]
well looking back to the schooling i went through, the higher potential classes like science, chemistry, biology, and others, only had us doing pointless busy work with little real experiments....
horticulture class changed the teachers 3 times in a year so that kept changing what we studied and skipping things halfway through
PE class was good though they dropped that recently, (kinda says they want kids to get fat)
anyone who went to art class or music class got labelled as gay
wood shop and metal shop taught a tiny bit of useful skill but had the kids making useless ****

the only classes where teachers put any effort into the work were the english and maths teachers (kinda says they wanted kids to be good little drones good at written and mathmatical work but not much else)
User avatar #180 to #52 - mathmatical (01/09/2013) [-]

Yeah, the first one was the same for me. Same with history, which is what I WANT to do. It's never USEFUL history. If I am going to run a museum, it needs to be interesting, not ******* cavemen dick farting around or roman bath houses or ******* random ass houses no one gives 2 ***** about in Australia. Those are seriously parts of history class. And music class was mandatory for us, but I hated it, as if everyone wants to learn an instrument or will EVER NEED A ******* RECORDER. There was no wood shop for me though.

But soon, I will get to university, I will **** up some **** , I will gather money, open a museum of oddities and hopefully get money. Hopefully. The best case scenario would live to see colonies on mars and open a museum on mars. Then kids who have never seen earth would want to go because they would want to know about where humans came from and **** .
User avatar #60 to #54 - konradkurze (01/09/2013) [-]
you see, THERE is a creative dream....not working in an office or a factory like a drone, but a museum of oddities....your own self employment where you get to be an accentric personality
User avatar #61 to #60 - EdwardNigma (01/09/2013) [-]
Ripleys believe it or not probably contributes to that. That show kicked ass. And the various games that took place in parts of history. Many factors.

plus in a world where everything is being streamlined towards fitting in narrow lines, if you come forwards with something that stands out as different, you'll make alot of business

well going to school in the 90's, what i remember about history class was mostly a big ******* sob story about apartheid in africa and little other history aside that
#37 to #34 - anonexplains (01/09/2013) [-]
It doesn't have to be bad. I think the comic is just illustrating how easy it is to manipulate a person by labeling them. And the people in the comments will use that to support whatever biases they have against the school system, etc.
#36 to #34 - broorb (01/09/2013) [-]
Oh, no, you're quite right - children DO need to be told they're special. That's a fundamental truth, in a lot of ways; for them to thrive mentally the utmost encouragement is necessary.

However, in order to realise his true potential a man needs to realise that he is not special, that he is, most likely, no different to his neighbour.

That way he can do something about it and become special, or, unbeknownst to him, he just blends in like any other, no?
#41 to #36 - anonexplains (01/09/2013) [-]
...unless he's actually talented and different from his neighbor, already. In which case attempting to humble him would be pointless/counterproductive.

and more people would be talented, if caregivers allowed children to follow their curiosities and whims instead of forcing standard talents upon them.

so really, the idea of humbleness and averageness is one huge mistake.
User avatar #45 to #41 - EdwardNigma (01/09/2013) [-]
Touche, anon.
#42 to #41 - broorb (01/09/2013) [-]
Humbling children is a fool's errand, true, but I'd say that humbling oneself as an adult that you might become better at your art is not.
#50 to #42 - anomolous (01/09/2013) [-]
just curious: if a talented adult were to humble himself, why would that improve his art?
#55 to #50 - broorb (01/09/2013) [-]
For some, it would give him incentive to become better. For others, yeah - they'll most likely disappear. The strongest heads win out, I suppose, and you must decide for yourself whether you'd rather some folk make it to square 10 and some folk stay at square 1, than all blend in at a grey level in between at square 5.
#62 to #55 - anomolous (01/09/2013) [-]
I think it's possible for an entire group of people to reach their own "square 10." But if your judgment of another is based solely on how he compares to others, there will always be losers. Not only that, but when you compare people to others, *everyone* is a loser.

Basically what I'm saying is: if people are judged based on their degree of self-actualization, rather than judged according to impersonal objectifying standards, it is possible for anyone (with the economic means to) to succeed.

Also I see no relation between this topic and humblness.

SIT THE 						****					 DOWN OP. IM GONNA GIVE YOU THE SECRET TO LIFE RIGHT HERE:   
   
Many kids throughout the world, including the country you live on, have low self-esteem when it comes to this aspect. They think that they are not special nor unique and are damned to live an unoriginal life. Working jobs they hate to have a meager existence.    
The thing is that many of the kids whom actually believed that they were clever, unique, special, etc.(e.g. the guy on the comic) fail to have successful lives basically because of their lack of faith. They are afraid to take the step that is gonna take them beyond their own limits. Maybe even some mental-walls that were built subconsciously of an experience they had (e.g. they saw a movie in which a man aimed at his dreams and failed.) or maybe because they actually dont believe they are unique in a subconscious level. What Im trying to tell you is that You are clever. You are unique. You are special. And you have the potential. But its not about who You are, its about who do you believe(consciously and subconsciously) you are.   
   
TL;DR? subconscious mind is a bitch

User avatar #39 to #25 - konradkurze (01/09/2013) [-]
the secret to true life is yes, build up a kids confidence to succeed in life BUT at something they want to strive for and acheive, not something they are told to strive for
#33 to #25 - broorb (01/09/2013) [-]
Hmmmm

That's an interesting point, and I agree with you on a lot of it. Kids do need to be told that they're special.

I suppose the point I'm making is that it can be very, very useful to realise eventually that you're not, so that you can become special via effort should you choose to.

Many don't achieve this; they go through life believing they are different when in fact, they're no different to their neighbour whether they like it or not.
