Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

Average American Grading Scale:
A+- 97-100
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
F- 59 and under

oh wow that is fucked up

why do they skip E in america

There’s an E in other grading scales?

And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below

Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

UK Grading Scale

100-70: A

69-60: B

59-50: C

49-40: D

Below 40: F

ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!

next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

i’m gonna remind you

that our “average” is your “A”

That is a fucked up system but I’m not sure we can really compare grading systems because the assessment systems are different as well

Ok, this post make me angry. This post suggests that my education system (I am British) is much easier than the one in America. Which is not true. For a start, this supposed grading system for the UK-  

  • 100-70: A
  • 69-60: B
  • 59-50: C
  • 49-40: D
  • Below 40: F

Is wrong. Reasons why it is wrong-

  • Every single unique exam paper is graded depending on its difficulty, so saying that these are the boundaries for each grade is just wrong because it’s impossible to say. 
  • This grading system doesn’t have the grade of ‘A*’ on it, which it would if it were legitimate
  • It is also missing out the grade of ‘E’ 
  • It’s also saying that anything ‘Below 40’ is an F, however this is wrong too, as we have grades ‘G’ and ‘U’ 

Next, these are the supposed grade boundaries for an exam paper. However, many of our subjects aren’t just about the grades you get in papers. Many, if not most, of our subjects involve doing coursework and controlled assessments, which are worth more of your whole overall grade. (Note: I don’t know if you do controlled assessments/coursework in America) For example, in French, there are 4 controlled assessment tasks that equal 60% of your final grade, one task being 15%, two speaking tasks and two writing tasks where you must either recount or rewrite a French essay learnt off by heart. Controlled assessment grade boundaries for one French controlled assessment-

  • A*: 28/30 (Approximately 93%)
  • A: 26/30 (Approximately 87%) 
  • B: 24/30 (80%) 
  • C: 22/30 (Approximately 73%)

Next, in the UK we receive a completely different certificate for our studies. In England, for example, we get GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and in America, you don’t really have an equivalent. (Source) This source also showed me that Americans can retake some of their exams, or repeat years if you fail, whereas, we can’t. 

Furthermore, if our exams are so easy, then why isn’t everyone getting straight A’s and A*’s? In fact, the amount of A*-C grades achieved last year decreased, and this was due to the papers being made harder by the exam boards (Of which we have several) Facts-

  • 'The proportion of students achieving them has fallen from 70% in 2012 to 68.7% in 2013.'
  • 'There's also been a decline in the very highest grades - 21.3% of students received A*/A grades this year, compared to 22.4% in 2012.'

(Taken from here)

To summarise, it’s not easier to get grades here, and I should know, as a UK student studying GCSEs. (P.S- We don’t all try to call Americans stupid, I like Americans, you guys are cool.) 

^^ Thank you very much, Sophie - might I add that in Britain, we take our exams at age 16, whereas in American you leave high school at 18, and we on the other hand move on to even more difficult qualifications (A-levels, or BTECs etc) to do at 17 and 18.

Ten rape prevention tips:

1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.

3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.

4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.

5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.

this perfectly represents how ridiculous the things women are told to prevent rape in the rape culture we live in

WHO IS THAT GIRL?!!

I think it’s Thor’s daughter in the future….. Maybe?

Its supposed to be Sigyn, the Goddess of Fidelity who, in norse mythology, is a beautiful blond woman who is Loki’s faithful wife. In the marvel universe, because she is in the comics a bit, She was meant to marry another warrior named Theoric, but Loki wanted her very much so he killed Theoric in the forest, disguised himself as the warrior and married Sigyn. When the truth came out, Odin wanted to punish Loki and Annul the marriage, but Sigyn remained loyal and so they were allowed to be together and she earned her title as Goddess of Fidelity.

She is always loyal to him, even when he pushes her away. The only myth that really includes her is when Loki is being punished by being tied down under a snake that drops poison from its fangs onto Loki, but Sigyn sits beside him and catches the poison in a bowl to save her husband who she loves.

Im 99.8% sure thats who the girl in this comic is supposed to be.
