Note to the person running our educational system: The friggin' world has changed, Numbnut! You can't expect our kids to spend twelve years under totalitarian rule and come out of the gate with any original thoughts.
Here's what we teach our kids: follow the rules, don't take risks, failure is bad, and don't upset the apple-cart.
Do I need to repeat it? The world has changed! We need people who can function without rules, take risks daily, who understand failure is the only route to astronomical success, and aren't afraid to turn over the apple-cart now and then.
Color outside the lines, it only feels kinky the first time.
