: One of my ex-GFs has been taking an online course in medicine. I tried taking
: some of the courses with her and....well I just couldn't do it. There were
: papers to write, and a LOT of technical facts to memorize. Not to mention
: the tests and other things she has to complete. Most of the online courses
: have a time limit attached just as if it was in a physical class. And more
: often then you think, there are blocks to prevent cheating. There are ways
: around it ( Cause I figured out a few ) but I'm happy to say she didn't
: use them.

: Now she still has to take physical classes at one of the local colleges. But
: they are mostly designed to test her physical capabilities and memory.

: I wouldn't call Online Classes a waste of time at all. It's cheaper then
: taking physical classes and easier to deal with. But as stated, they are
: not as good as physical classes.

: As for Johnny's classes....they don't make any sense to me at all. What does
: playing video games, over sleeping, and ordering have to do with anything
: academic in athletics? And a 140-character paper on Twitter? WHAT?!?! I
: had to do 5,000 character papers on a stupid book in High School! How in
: the world is a tiny twitter post considered a paper?! Athletic Academics
: are important if that's your chosen career. But at least make it a Actual
: Course!! Jerry Manziel's clases are nothing but a joke. Of Course he got a
: 4.0 average!! A 12 Year Old could have passed his course! HECK!! A average
: 12 Year Old Was His Freaking Tutor!!

: Dang Jocks always seem to get the easy way in life and all the money.

I completely agree that professional athletes are disgustingly overpaid. Even though I was a great athlete, I still understood, and continue to acknowledge this fact, that at the end of the day for all the talent an athlete may have, they aren't advancing humanity in any way or directly benefiting the community. Yet they bitch and moan if they don't get paid 5 million a year instead of 4 million, while many scientists seem to be fairly underpaid.

But also remember...

Some jocks can be quite intelligent... I just refused to do homework throughout high school because I was stubborn and wouldn't budge from my personal philosophy I had regarding homework. Which was, as long as I aced the tests, homework, which is simply continued study/practice of the days topic, should not count for such a large portion of your grade in the class. Plus I always scored within the nineties percentile in all subjects each year for the state testing, whatever they call it these days.

Alas, in the end my stand against the tyranny of assigned homework only left me with C's in most classes, or B's in ones that didn't assign as much HW, and regarded as an apathetic student by most of my teachers. The few teachers I actually talked with and got along with are the ones that didn't haha.
