Things We Learned in School that are Now UselessDumbWays2DieFan Remember in school when we had to write in cursive, make something out of a shoebox, or even how to climb a rope?
The Top Ten
I still write most of my handwritings in cursive, it's easier and faster for me because you don't have to lift your pen every letter and don't have to write as strictly. The problem is mostly that only I can read it. - Martin_Canine
Apparently, it helps you write faster in essays. Even though you technically have to write more.
I love cursive that I write my signature my first name in cursive - Kevinsidis
It should be a decision, not forced on us!V 6 Comments
What the... in what class did you learn that, for what reason and how did it fit into the context of the subject? - Martin_Canine
Waste of an egg. Waste of time. At least it's better than tests. - DumbWays2DieFan
So gross when the egg hits the pavement, somebody's gotta clean it up.
Physics is fun!
-Said no-one ever - mattstat716
I still have traumas for this...It was so painful to play it in front of 20+ students, and what was worse, I sucked. - Disturbedpotato
I had to do is through grades 3-5. It was hard. The last 2 songs were easy though. - DumbWays2DieFan
Um? Hey, uh, what's a recorder? - mattstat716
LMAO I had to this in 3rd and 4th grade. - DarkBoi-XV 2 Comments
Gym is literally the useless class for me and others too. All I do in gym is try not to be killed with flying basketballs by stupid boys. I got hit in the leg and my arm this school year, nobody gave a crap neither...
Sports class... I hated it and always failed. But it actually is useful to know how to climb in case you are in danger and have to flee from somewhere quickly. - Martin_Canine
This is a useful skill if you are trying to survive for your life - JordanFireStar
Climbing isn't my thing. - mattstat716V 1 Comment
I have seen that in so many American high school movies and series. Can somebody explain this to me? Why this is taught in American schools, what subjects it belongs in and how it became a thing? - Martin_Canine
I'll go to a volcano and erupt it by throwing baking soda in. Maybe that'll work. - mattstat716
Teach us how to dodge a volcano instead. Don't give us a worksheet though. - DumbWays2DieFan
Trust me, when you get into college or at the very least, a college-level class in high school or a community college program, you're GOING to want to memorize this for tests even if you've long forgotten it prior to taking the classes. I know this because I took a math class for my Career and College Promise Program and we had to do an entire lesson on it and practice at home online to memorize the formulas. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
We have calculators. Teachers say you don't always have one. Then I will carry around multiple or use my phone. It's worse for my youngest bro because he has to do it the partial way. Poor him. - DumbWays2DieFan
The thing with these things is that teachers don't know what direction their students want to go later on and need to somewhat prepare everyone. We had about 30 students in a class. 28 didn't need it, but 2 wanted to be physicists, and they will need it. - Martin_Canine
Wrong this is actually necessary. - DarkBoi-XV 3 Comments
Who needs this when everything's ONLINE?
I never had to do this but my cousin did. - DumbWays2DieFan
How does one find library book, again? - mattstat716
Didn't learn it, didn't need it. - Martin_Canine
Gladly we hadn't had to memorize and could just use the printed table for tests. Chemists can use one too, but they have to somewhat know it by heart, because they need the elements a lot and it takes some time to look everything up every few seconds. - Martin_Canine
Most of the world doesn't use it. Real chemists put a periodic table on the wall to refer to. They don't memorize it. - DumbWays2DieFan
Most chemists memorise it. Especially those who are good at their jobs - bstrz04
I only know Lithium because of evanescence lol.
Jeez, why would anyone need to know this? - mattstat716V 1 Comment
Worse for you if you hate presenting. - DumbWays2DieFan
We didn't learn anything about our constitution. But it would have been a great thing to base political debates on. Especially because such papers constantly need to be reworked to fit our modern society.
Points for US school system. - Martin_Canine
This should be common knowledge in times of wide global communications (I mean, we have at least 3 nationalities alone commentating on this list) and although I am horrible in Geography, this is by far the most useful item on this list. - Martin_Canine
I literally know all 50 states of the US and their capitals off the top of my head. Don't know what to use it for though... - Phillip873
We don't care what the capital is for other places. If you go on travel, you can use a map. - DumbWays2DieFan
Google Maps has this taken care of. - mattstat716V 1 Comment
We can teach ourselves. - DumbWays2DieFan
Umm... that's something students figure out themselves and joke about it... you (hopefully) don't actually learn that in class. - Martin_Canine
Easy. I like to spell boobies on the calc, lmao.

We can learn it ourselves. School is for preparing you to get a good job - DumbWays2DieFan
