To some extent, it’s easy to see why today’s kids are so stupid, considering how much of this complete misinformation they still feed us in schools.
When I was in high school, my life management (yes, that’s really what the B.S. class was called) teacher tried to tell us that a women can tell how much her fiance loves her based on how expensive of an engagement ring he bought her. She got really pissed off and wouldn’t answer when I asked, “so you’re saying a rich man is more capable of loving someone than a poor man, just because he can buy a bigger ring?”
As it turns out, that’s not even close to as terrible as some of these terrible lies teachers have told their students. Feel free to share any lies your teachers told you in the comments.

Remember when John McCain ran for a chance to be Democratic presidential candidate? Neither do I. But Fox News aparently does. While we all know they’re full of it, I was unaware that they routinely change Repulican politicians into Democrats whenever they are in a scandal or just bother the station in some way.
