Ignorance is bliss? like hell.

Whoever said ignorance is bliss is clearly mistaken. I'm in highschool and i honestly cannot stand it. My maturity level is so much higher than any one of my classmates. It's not even something i can explain. I sit in my classes and just cringe at the level of immaturity, especially considering I'm a very good student and people don't understand what they have to do in order to pass a class; and then i get lame ass questions about what to do when a- the teacher has JUST thoroughly explained it,  b- the directions are RIGHT in front of you, or c- it's common sense! I laugh really hard at the kids who are failing and just realizing that they have to pass, so they have a meeting with the parents and the teachers, figure out what they have to do and such, and then try to apply it. But those same damn kids are the ones who aren't copying down ANYTHING, not making little side notes and not trying their best to understand. And then they have the nerve to come to me to ask for help and to borrow MY notes once they've figured out 'hey, i might need this'. Let me give you a little hint: hard work pays off, trying to bullshit your way through the course will NOT help you out during exams and sure as hell not in the future. I don't understand how these peoples' minds work, as in the people who say 'yeah, she failed me!'. Umm, reality check, you failed yourself. You're the one who didnt hand in the work, you're the one who is sleeping in class, and you're the one who isn't paying any attention to anything that is going on around you. And another thing to keep in mind, not trying your hardest and not passing any classes will only cause you to stay in school longer. LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE.

Another one that really gets me is people who just don't care. That's a pretty broad statement, but it's people who don't care about the important things. I'll focus in on global warming/climate change. Your kids' kids' arent going to have much of a planet. They might even ask what Hawaii or Prince Edward Island was like, considering it will probably be under the water. I laugh at the people who think that it is all a 'political conspiracy'. Are you effing kidding me?! Look at the facts! Higher temperatures, or very warm temperatures in the middle of november; the 'weird weather' is a sign that our world is going in a downward spiral, and quite rapidly at that. I constantly struggle for control when i hear people say that they don't really care about climate change, or global warming, because 'they wont be here'. How heartless are you, seriously? Not only is it heartless, it's pretty damn selfish of you. So you get to enjoy this earth and all the benifits of living, but as for the generations after you, you could care less? Thats pretty stupid of you, and i just look at those people like they are scum, because thats what they are. Its either the uneducated people, or the people who think they know it all and are too stubborn to face the facts.

Ignorance is only bliss for those people who are in fact ignorant.

*stands and applauds* Woo! *airpunch* Are you telling me there are kids sitting in class who think like this? Who actually see things how they are? That's made my day :) Thank you :D
Haha, there most definitely is. I have to go through this day-by-day. I'm glad that some good turned out of my vent, and that it made your day :)
wow. seriously, i had to take a moment off my viraling skills to read this and see how big of a hypocrite a lie it would be to say that "ignorance isn't really bliss" and whatnot; okay, i understand you are venting, but you crossed the line when you included other people who are just there at the wrong class of the day pick at them as if they were cotton and you were in a cotton field, you dirty slave. yes, slave, i called you as such because you fell into the "I am not an ignorant person" trap-hole and will never see how to get out of it. You bring in your maturity 'level' as if it were on level 999 of the zorgon mega army video game and yet fail to notice how immature it really is to pick at other people from such a safe distance; your hipocracy is what drew me to conclude that, since you are still in high school, you do not know of the evil in people. i would understand if you were actually older (like 30 or so) and actually had gone through some shit in life (such as a horrific incident: rape, killings, drug overdoses, family deaths, etc.) and felt it hit you in the back the front and the meat of your heart and soul. you disgust me because you are 'venting' against basically yourself and blame others for your mistakes so much so that it makes me hard to believe that you are actually as smart as what you are trying to make us believe. sure you are booksmart, but when the economy falls, and you have no other choice but to survive in the wild, and your classroom peers, who never payed attention in class, know how to survive in harsh conditions (out in the wild, with little moeny, etc.) who was the smartest person when you wind up dead in a ditch and your friend is warm and cozy in a cave? ignorace is bliss and you prove it true once again; remember, ignorance is not specific, it applies to everything and so such a comment as "ignorance is bliss? like hell" really only provide more proof that you are in fact more ignorant than what you think you are not.

sincerely yours, the viral disease,

Don't worry; life is supposed to be shitty like that.
