scam classes

School is really important: reading, writing, arithmetic. But what they tend to do is teach you reading, writing, arithmetic… then teach you reading, writing, arithmetic again. Then again, then again, just making it harder and harder just to keep you busy. And that’s where I think they messed up. There should be a class on drugs. There should be a class on sex education. No, REAL sex education class, not just pictures and illogical terms…There should be a class on scams, there should be a class on religious cults, there should be a class on police brutality, there should be a class on apartheid, there should be a class on racism in America, there should be a class on why people are hungry, but there not, their class is on…gym….Their class is like algebra. we have yet to go a store and said, “Can I have X Y + 2 and give me my Y change back, thank you.” You know?…Like foreign languages. I think that they are important, but I don’t think it should be required. Actually, they should be teaching you English, and then teach you how to understand double talk, politician’s double talk. Not teaching you how to understand French and Spanish and GERMAN. When am I going to Germany? I can’t afford to pay my rent in America! How am I going to Germany?

Gobblepot idea up for grabs

So I was reading this article about online romance scams for my German class, and my trash brain whispered “imagine the gobblepot version”.

Jim installs a dating app at the insistence of Harvey, and is soon matched with a lovely woman. Same interests and sense of humour, they get along fantastically, and talk till late into the night. Jim finally asks if they could meet face to face too.

Except, when Jim makes it to the date, a very nervous Oswald is the one waiting for him. He thinks the mobster is there to annoy him/ask for a favour, until Oswald confesses that he is said date. Yes, he lied, but he thought Jim was having fun?

Jim is raging and storms out of the restaurant. He needs like two weeks to cool off, two agonizingly long weeks, where he stares at his phone every five minutes, and his chest absolutely aches with how much he misses those conversations. He’s very lonely.

BUT THEN he finally realises that he’s always liked Oswald, and he’d never felt happier than when they were chatting till dawn, so he pays the mobster a visit. Happy end!

Also the ‘plant based diet" thing has to do with a specific set of health books and studies by a bogus doctor who extrapolated from the effects of casein in rats that animal proteins are the cause of most human ills, and went on to make a vegan scare documentary or set of documentaries to sell his and his friends’ books. So no, it’s not for health reasons, yes it’s the same wider vegan culture of guilting white people, no I’m not 'confusing’ anybody for anybody– own that your wider culture is based on pseudomedical and pseudohealth hoodwinking and scams to gullible middle classes terrified of being sick and fat.

He was only 17 right here. Everything he said is true.

There should be a drug class, there should be sex education, there should be a class on scams, there should be a class on religious cult, there should be a class on police brutality, there should be a class on aparthy, there should be on racism in america, there should be a class on why people are hungry, but there’s not, there’s class on gym, you know, physical education, let’s learn volleyball…there’s classes like algebra where I’ve yet to go to a store and gone “xy+2 and give me my change back thank you.” the things that helped me were the things I learned from my mother, from the streets. They’re not, to get us ready for today’s world. They’re not, that’s not helping. It’s just what they took, so that’s what we’re gonna take. So that’s why the streets have taught me. Just make it harder and harder, just to keep you busy. And that’s where I think they messed up.
