The Unbearable Awesomeness Of Being

Brains

I occasionally have insights into the human nature that are either wrong or better explained by someone else. This doesn't stop me from sharing them with you! For example:

When we are young and in school, most challenges of a physical nature are cooperative (football, volleyball, et cetera). In contrast, most challenges of a mental nature are competitive (test grades). This naturally conditions children to hate and distrust people smarter than them - they're the competitor, they're the enemy.

And then come the toilet dunkings and lack of socialness and people untrustable for a janitorial position as president scause they don't look threatening. And it aaall repeats on the next generation around!

  • The physical challenges tend to be more zero-sum, though.

  • We also had non coop sports like track, swimming, tether ball, racing, stuff like that. Also had coop intellect things. We had teams to do history/math/science games.

    I guess every school is different.

    Also man sorry about the toilet dunking.
    Never experienced that.
