Let's all be random, shall we?


Of people posting advice on the internet. I was searching around for a high school supply list (apparently, the US starts high school in grade 9. Where did the missing year come from? Are there only 2 years of junior high or something?)

Why are 10 pack markers recommended by people? You need them in ninth grade, you’re probably in art, and those need the 43-colour-brush-pen calibre “markers”. Pencil crayons for map assignments, perhaps, but usually you can pull that off with five colours (which I used pen for, since an outline style of colouring is acceptable).

And a graphing calculator.

Bitch, you don’t need a graphing calculator till grade 10 (When high school starts in Canada). I find it hilarious that the person who suggested this couldn’t spell, at all. And grammar was tortured and spat out.

Anyway, that’s not the inspiration for the post, since lots of people on yahoo answers are routinely retarded.

But this legit looking site was being stupid beyond belief.

“Eliminate the guesswork by getting a list from your child’s teacher ahead of time or waiting until school starts to find out what’s actually required”


Just no.

Horrible idea. Besides, a high school student should be plenty aware of what they need. And God, here, High schools don’t even provide lists anymore, and dammit, you are NOT going to bother a teacher just because your brain is incompetent.

And, crafts? In high school? What?

  1. for us junior high starts at 6 grade, and ends at 8th grade, which explains why 9th grade is the start of high school

    • Mystified, completely. It makes more sense to start high school on double digits, no?

      • We have ‘years’ here in england instead of ‘grades’ and we begin highschool (at a different age, granted) in year 7 (age 11) and leave in year 11 (age 16) to go to college. So double digits doesnt really matter, just your age and learning stage that you are at.
