18. Humanities are useless.

Art and philosophy are useless. Music is useless.



My god, what a dull, colorless one-dimensional world you must live in. The emphasis on science and math is exactly what conservatives drone and what has decimated our public education system. There aren't jobs in the humanities because there's been a concentrated effort by conservatives to erase such curriculum from our schools. There's a reason why intellectuals and artists are among the first people targeted for eradication by oppressive regimes. We are the first to question authority, and we encourage others to do so, too.
