I went to a Math and Science focused boarding school. Lol not a lot of emphasis on everyday things like those.

That might be right for countries, that have a voting system based on pens and little circles that have to be ticked off. But some have those weird contraptions like the butterfly ballot... There it isn't as easy.

I assumed that was stuff your parents were supposed to teach you.

You wouldn't be the first and certainly not the last to do so.

(Boring Rant Alert)

The Pythagorean Theorem is actually far more useful than this post gives it credit for.

There's always a bunch of crap given to Mathematics because of (based on the impression I've been given) the notion that math is overly complicated and difficult and therefore has no use. I.E. (Er mah gurd. wen will I evur use ths? im not gunna be a math teecher).

Speaking as one who has always had a proficiency in mathematics and has enjoyed learning about it, I'd like to point out that "complicated" (note the quotations) aspects of math such as Trigonometry and Calculus have a number of very helpful uses that make it integral (no pun intended) for society to function.

If you want to learn how to use or program computers, you're going to need to know the theorems found in Calculus (not JUST Calculus, but it is a key part) to be able to make them run. Computers don't just run on pixie dust to do what we ask of them.

If you want to be an architect or construction worker, you better know Physics and the Pythag. theorem if you want to make a building that won't cave in when someone steps foot on a higher floor.

(I put Calculus along with the Pythagorean Theorem because it's used often in Calculus, and is also seen as "worthless" by a number of people)

This is all just the tip of the iceberg too.

If you don't know how to vote, you have some serious issues...

So you can log into Funnyjunk and complain about this ****, but you can not simply research, by yourself, how to do all that stuff?

I would have liked to have learned how to handle;
Getting pulled over by the police.
The extent of my rights in MY country (I know most of america's laws but not my own)
How the government is SUPPOSED to operate and how it actually is.
Geography of the world and local customs/insults.
How to cook something other than Kraft Dinner and Pop Tarts (although what else do you really need?)
Basic medicine and what to avoid if possible (cortisone for example increases your risk of cancer by a LOT but that doesn't stop a doctor from coming at you with a needle without telling you that)
There are a lot of others but those I would liked to have known earlier.

Let's see, I did learn:
What taxes are
How to vote
How to write a resume/cover letter
how to apply for loans for college

The rest my parents taught me.
