I'm done with finals!

Guess how I did.







EDIT: Oh yeah, I might as well point it out now - that ain't me. That a girl. I'm not in this at all.

I remember when I got an F. My dad called me a dumb ass and told me to try harder, and I love him for it.

But it does make me think of what I'm doing now, and if it's worth doing. Well, props to you, it can make someone have a crisis.

If you get an F ur doomed. Maybe with a D it could be called a failure on the "road to success" but not an F. If you're getting bad enough grades that your parents aren't pissed from an F, then rip your future.

grades are never equal to success in life. sure higher grades can equal to a good college, diplomas then good work but you don't always need to have high grades to be successful in life. most of the geniuses and inventors/famous people did not finish their studies but became successful

That was in their days. Education then was different than it is now. The world as a whole was different. Any successful scientist and engineer nowadays has been properly educated and most likely earned good grades. Also, it wasn't that many inventors whom received bad grades as children. The only one that I can think of is Albert Einstein (although I guess you could consider the greek philosophers who theorized many scientific facts today, even though they had mentors). Also, "famous people" is a very broad term which can be used virtually endlessly. The majority of modern "famous people" are uneducated idiots who would be working at McDonald's if it wasn't for what people perceived as their attractiveness. And one more thing: genius means an individual who has an IQ above 140. I is really just your average potential, not true intelligence. One needs to gain knowledge to become truly intelligent. The reason past uneducated inventors, specifically Einstein, were able to get away with it is that they had the time in their personal lives to teach themselves. In today's society that is near impossible, and the majority of people arent willing to do so even if they had the chance.

still, i believe you don't always need great grades to be successful in life. Sometimes, you can use talents or skills. There are some jobs that don't require a diploma, like painting then selling them or having them at an art gallery, or being a professional gamer, or being a youtube star. They're not "professional" but they can get you somewhere in life. And not all famous people are stupid. Do not always rely on great grades in life, because knowledge can only get you so far in life.

That's very interesting what you explained! And you have right! Though, in some cases, really intelligent people have great emotional trouble and that can wreck havoc on school grades when they're young. That's kind of because of what you explained about intelligence: To show your intelligence, you should gain knowledge. When you have emotional trouble, you can't study and gain knowledge. Though, that doesn't make you less intelligent.

I'm kind of intelligent and want to share an experience: I never studied much in college and got full Fs for two half years. Then, there was a three step exam for a prestigious student scholarship in a foreign country offered by my college. I applied. All other candidates had higher grades, knew their stuff well, and gave better answers when asked about their area of knowledge. Me? When asked simple questions like "What is X?" I answered "Hmm, X? I don't know. What is it, honestly? :) " Three months later, I was on a plane, sent to a prestigious university with a wallet full of scholarship money in my bag...It's the same with everything I do. When I was 22, I was made the marketing manager of a firm, although I knew little about marketing. When I play a computer game, I'm made the head of an alliance although I've been playing for a week. When I attend a guitar course, I'm made to give a solo concert. Same for piano...When I cook, everyone says I'm the best. And that I believe, is because of intelligence. But people like me are probably rare.

Edit: Though, don't think I reached a great place in life. I caught an autoimmune disease and am miserable, lol.

Love the strip. You're a good as artist. Confused though, what is the Dad about to do in the last slide? Is he pointing? Is he preparing to SLAP the mother? If that's the case, I hope it's not true to life. Worried...
