This is the best thing ever.
going to bed late and then realizing you have homework due the next day
GOT MY BUMPER STICKERS
This is so incredibly ignorant that it’s making my head hurt. When people say, “Guns don’t kill people,” they are not saying, “A gun and bullets can’t be used to kill someone,” and you know it. A gun, by itself, cannot kill someone. It doesn’t matter what side of the the debate you’re on. A gun, by itself, cannot kill someone. The problem has always, always been people. If you put the blame on an inanimate object, you are saying that people don’t need to take responsibility for their actions.
I hate to repeat a tired cliche, but if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. Or people will find other ways of murdering each other. This shouldn’t even be a political argument, it’s not about our Second Amendment rights; it’s about being able to defend yourself. Let’s say gun control is fully instated, or it’s made illegal to own a gun. One day, you’re walking home, and someone with a gun pulls you into an alley, threatening your life for whatever it is they want. If you point at them and say, “Hey, having that gun is illegal!” do you think they’ll apologize profusely, turn themselves in, and allow you to go on your merry way?
However, if any average person on the street has a gun, do you think muggers and thieves (or even an ill-intentioned average Joe) are going to be more motivated to make a target of someone? Probably not, since there’s a high chance that target will be well armed (like Chicago vs. Houston, if you look at the first article below).
I’m sorry to turn this into a rant, I don’t do this (very) often. Just read the first paragraph, that’s really all I meant to say.
Someone has completely missed the point.
Is that you, Steve Carlsburg?
Oh yes, because owning a gun is your “duty as an american”, isn’t it?
United States, the greatest gun producer.
"Buy a pink rifle to your daughter, teach kids how guns are awesome and cool. Give guns TO CHILDREN." But when they murder each other, blame video games or Marlin Manson. Not the whole gun propaganda nor the president sending more soldiers to kill muslims.
Buy a car, win a gun! Open a bank account in our bank and win a gun! Buy our guns! Guns are cool! Guns are awesome! Having a gun means power! Owning guns will solve crime!
Cut the bullcrap about your freaking guns I’m sick of USA and its freaking guns everywhere and you telling me that all this “gun is for protection we have to have it”.
IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING
It’s it’s a fact! Cities and states that allow a gun on a person are noticeably lower in murder. Having guns is about protection. No, we are not EVER going to give guns to children. We are not going to tell that that having guns are cool, like it’s a toy. We are going to tell them that it’s a dangerous weapon and can kill somebody, even you, if not handled correctly. We can teach them that they can be used for protection if they’re desperate enough. Wether our not they learn how to use it is the parents choice, not yours. I learned how to use a gun by the time I was 11, and I turned out fine. Tons of other people I know also learned how to use a gun at a young age, but they are crazy maniacs. They are normal people that would only use a gun if needed.
Get this through your thick skull:
GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. PEOPLE ARE THE PROBLEM.
I AM LAUGHING SO HARD
I CANT BREATHE. ITS TOO GREAT.

This hits uncomfortably close to home.
remember kids, striving for academic achievement is bad and you should do bad in school or else you’re a mindless robot!
Did you even pay attention? The point of this comic was not to bash “doing good in school, because then you’re a mindless robot”. It was to warn against putting your academic rating above everything else, including your own hobbies.
The 3rd to last panel even reads “I have no interests… and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning.”
There is a huge fucking difference between “learning” and “excelling”, so let me give you a basic run down. “Learning” involves critical thinking, and putting your own thoughts and feelings and wants and goals into a particular subject you are passionate about. “Excelling” is when you numb your feelings because a “A” on a piece of paper is more important to you than pursuing your personal goals, or that has become your only personal goal.
People want to “excel” for several reasons. Family, Friends, Expectations, the promise of a good job and a future. People who want to “learn” often face several struggles. The “Great Artists” probably struggle with a failing economy, the one who reads about their interests probably has trouble explaining their views to their family, and the Musicians have a hard time working for their goals. But the fact that they preserver and struggle and work even still is what makes them good learners.
And people who work towards Academic Success are not robots. I am the one who always doodles in class, but I also strive to excel in my other courses. That is because I WANT a higher education, and I know that doing so requires me to have good grades in ALL subjects, not just art.
This comic was not about doing bad in school, this comic was about the difference between getting a “good education” and getting a “work ticket”. If you do extremely well in school that does not mean that you are a slave or a robot or a mindless worker. This comic is instead warning us about the dangers of working the system. When we sacrifice doing what we want to do and hobbies and what we love just for the sake of a letter grade.
The joys of education don’t simply come from doodling in class, and the certainly don’t come from only caring about your grades! Instead, you need to find a healthy balance in your hobbies and your skills. Neither of these things should be places above one another. Focus too much on your hobbies and you might not be able to sustain yourself. Focus too much on excelling in school, and you’ll wind up scared and clueless on what to do once you get out of the school system.
If you’re proud of your grades and your transcripts? GREAT!
If you’re proud of your skills as an artist or a musician or outside endeavors? SUPER!
But don’t try to dismiss the work of people who do well in school and call them “Robots”. Don’t even try.
