That is what I do playing through the game as well. Most of the competitive folks aren't going to be mass breeding or being super selective as they play through because you unlock the tools to breed more effectively after you beat the main game anyway.
Sometimes I try to use something that I think seems cool but is so horrible I have to set it aside, though.
Why were you so horrible, Onyx?

Obviously she wasn't going to leave, Why would you leave to Mexico when they pay you shit? Someone with that high GPA could get a really well paying job in US.
It's a high school GPA not a college GPA, no college GPA is ever over 4.0 because they won't give your classes extra weight (Which is how people get over 4.0 or 100 on their GPAs). She could still fail college actually, high school GPA doesn't mean jack shit.
Also High Schools vary wildly in how difficult they are. Like my school had really high standards so our "4.0+" students were definitely good. It was probably because our district was filled with rich people. We also offered a lot of AP classes, which most of us took.
One of my brothers friends had a 3.9 from his HS but he was a dumbass. The work that they had to do was pretty simple and cheating wasn't hard. He almost failed his first year of college.
Colleges take into account workloads usually when making these choices, for example they would see the course load we took and we would score higher than others.
There isn't a single high school with classes that rival the difficulty of a real university like Stanford. Technically a high school can cover exactly what a college class would cover, for example calculus in High school and Calculus 1 in college are probably going to be the same thing, but because of the rules all high school classes have it wont be as difficult. For example as I'm sure you're aware most colleges, be it community college or university, refuse to let you make up tests. They'll offer extra credit to try and salvage a bad grade or sometimes a professor will curve, but you will never receive a make up test in most classes.
I agree that getting good grades in difficult courses takes a fair amount of hard work and I don't think high school or especially ap classes are worthless ( I do however think the AP system is fucked because of how states treat high school, many AP credits will never transfer to your degree no matter how good you do on a test). I do however think that a high school GPA and even college GPA don't actually mean anything. I've seen many people make shitty grades in high school or even college and turn out to be amazing scientists or doctors (Doctors in psychology I mean, I don't know any medical doctors that made poor grades because it's too hard to get into med school without a high GPA) and I know some people who made fantastic high school or college grades and didn't turn out to be any good at their jobs once they graduated. GPA and grades in general don't actually measure your abilities as well as schools think they do, they're honestly a shitty way to determine how good your employees are going to be. Some companies like google are actually aiming for people who aren't making top marks in college because the middle grade graduates tend to do better in their company, and while I don't claim this as something that could be applied to every company or even most companies, it still serves as a good example of what I am talking about.
Yeah, basically what I was highlighting is that performance in HS is never really indicative one way or another towards your future success at a university. Not all HS GPAs are created equal, and a 4.0 here could be equal to a 3.0 there.
Honestly I don't think there's a huge difference between high schools. Yeah there is definitely a noticeable difference between high schools but honestly it never matters. The most important thing for any high school is how well ir prepares you for SAT / ACT tests and AP tests, which are the only things that can translate properly to college and will determine quite a bit of your future. I'd say the major difference in high school isn't in their academics but rather in how well they can get people into trade schools. There are high schools that are obviously made to prep students for college, but I really don't see a humongous difference between them and a regular high school because of how completely worthless I think GPA is either way.
They tend to give full ride scholarships to the people who are least likely to fail out of college.
The people with the highest high school GPAs aren't always the least likely to fail. You can have someone who makes Bs and C's make straight A's in college and be a fantastic employee, and you can have a valedictorian completely flunk college. They don't have a good system of determining who will do well in college or even if high school grades actually mean anything at all but they refuse to admit it.
The colleges judge on more than just grades tho. In fact, grades are prolly a pretty small factor in comparison to extra curricular activities, leadership roles, and individually motivated projects.
No in Texas the state this student is in the public universities have automatic acceptance based on GPA. Scholarships, which aren't paid by the university, may look at more than just grades, but the school does not have that choice. Anyone with a high enough GPA gets a free ride anyway, it's not like all that extra shit is actually difficult especially when it helps with your fucking grades.

And yeah I take the bigger file and size it down. This is about one fourth the size of the photoshop file.
Thanks, I've been noticing a lot of work I see is scaled down when you look at it... yet I was taught to and always work on really big files. I guess this is good for a few reasons, hide a few small mistakes and detail.
Maybe that but in my experience it's never good to cover a mistake you made with a quick and easy solution. No the real reason for working so big is so that when you shrink it down those details look super tight.
Yeah I get ya, worded that kinda wrong. Didn't mean mistake more in I just meant sometimes things will look off when zoomed in on or when you're in higher scale, but tighten up when shrunk down.
It's a little hard to explain what I mean by this. I think you know what I mean. It's that tightness thing.
Also most people don't see the mistakes you see, I've noticed that. Usually the kind of mistakes I mean are really small or unnoticeable. We're always more critical of our own work, or at least I am.
Yeah we're more critical because we see more.

- Correct, ad hominem is the fallacy of targeting one's opponent…
Even if used in an argumentative setting they aren't necessarily ad hominem. Just insulting somebody is simply an aside, completely irrelevant to any actual points being made. Ad hominem needs to be targeted at the person as part of a refutation or dismissal of their argument or position. If I address all the points my opposition has made, and then at the end call them a fucking moron, that is not ad hominem. That is simply an aside, and has no bearing on the integrity of the argument. In fact, you can insult somebody at
point during an argument, so long as it is not being used as an attempt to dismiss or refute the opposing argument.
