Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale:
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
F- 59 and under
oh wow that is fucked up
why do they skip E in america
There’s an E in other grading scales?
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
That is so fucked up. O.o
I thought…I always thought D was just above half the points. Like 50/100. And F was under 50. The English system looks more logical to me.
Anyway it is always pretty silly to consider a foreigner dumb based on their grades because the systems are always scarily different. Like, in math. I went to the USA when I was 15 and let me tell you :
USA : in math, we were doing geometry, namely learning how to recognize (by definitions) squares, lozenges, the different triangles and so on, in order to use this knowledge in logical reasoning. So they were graded on this at the time.
FRANCE : at the same time, in math, we were graded on :
We had already done the geometry they were currently learning, from age 12 to 14.
Getting 80/100 is very good. It should be at least a B not a fucking C minus. It should not be made fun of, I mean. It’s GOOD.
Saying “duh, math is easy” to a 15 yo french person is just plain cruel.

[[1. I read Harry as a bisexual character. He notices the attractiveness of both males and females, and it is pretty awesome to have a hero who is bi.]]
I was just saying this to someone, how the series is from his POV but people like Bill are still described as handsome and attractive =3
DOES A BLOKE HAS TO BE BI TO AKNOWLEDGE ANOTHER BLOKE’S ATTRACTIVENESS ? Dear Lord.
Should he have added, “No homo” like a jerk for you to consider he was straight ?
The idea that a boy can’t say another boy is good-looking without being tagged as gay or bi makes me want to throw a fridge at someone and move to Pluto.
All the Bonds.
This is fantastic.
Realizing the Bonds are like Americans version of Doctor Who…just more killing and a lot more sex
James bond is fucking British dude.
And kills a lot less than the Doctor. But he sure does get a lot more smoochy-smoochy time.
