Blogs are an additional feature on PC and while everyone is free to comment on public blogs, they can only be created if you meet these criteria:
Become a Community Supporter of tier 2 or higher. (ie. donate at least $10)
Obtain at least 5000 posts.
Be selected by the staff.
Become a staff member.
As mentioned, there is a chance of being chosen specially by the staff for a blog. The staff may offer a blog to members who contribute actively to the community. If the staff believes you may have something worthwhile to contribute in a blog, there is a chance you will be selected to use the blogging feature.
Okay, everything people NEED to learn in order to pass nowadays? Three months.
When I was in school, let us use the FCAT and AP systems... The limit people could learn to pass... half a year.
How long it would take to learn everything schools CAN offer: 3 years, and only then at maximum.
How long it would take to learn literally everything taught all the way through PhD level, but with all general subjects...5 years.
Now, add that to focusing on mastering a single discipline? 1 year, unless you want to learn all main subjects, solet'ssay5 years+.
^ That is honestly all it takes to learn everything educational systems have to offer. Now the internet, of course, has much more, but still...
The human brain is very underestimated. We can learn a discipline so fast it's no joke and do so at our leisure and it would only take a year, maybe two depending on how much the discipline covers (like Philosophy, History, Physics, Art - all kinds, etc).
Yet we are FORCED to learn things in which 95% or so of it we will never use, across 13+ years? And we are forced to start this when we're, quite honestly, INFANTS?
No... This is so, so very wrong. Burn the education systems of the world to the ground...to the ground...
Yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
The human mind is capable of so much more, but still so many go to waste.
