Evangelical run classical Christian schools are saving Western civilization.

The guiding principle is the Trivium. The Trivium provides both language, logic, and leadership mastery in three parts or phases– grammar (typically emphasized in k-6), Logic (typically in 7-9) and Rhetoric (typically in 10-12). The quadrivium provides a philosophical approach to learning about our world including number, geometry (shape), astronomy (motion), and music (ratio’s and proportions).

Classical Christian education is characterized by a reliance on classical works by authors such Homer, Sophocles, Plato, Josephus, Dante, and Shakespeare, and an integration of a Christian worldview into all subjects. In addition, classical Christian education exposes students to Western Civilization's history, art and culture, teaching Latin as early as the second grade and often offering several years of Greek.

Actually one of the first couple posts shows that kids who graduate from these schools get married more frequently and have larger social groups. It's true that the stereotype is small religious schools produce weird kids, but a large scale study suggests otherwise pretty clearly.

So you've got a shitty memory and you're also lazy. Don't pick it up again. Your decision to give up was wise considering you can't even write down a few sentences here and there.

God are you a literal retard. If you read, and want to remember what you read. You have to write. God you're an idiot. You think you're going to gain anything by swiping you glassy eyeballs over a page for a couple of hours. God how are you fucking... this dumb...

Why does he make so many references to sex? Is it advertising, does he just like talking about it, or is there something about sex that makes it a good tool for conveying his ideas?

His point about the virtualization of sex (a couple coming together, putting a plastic penis into a plastic vagina and then they both sit and discuss other matters) is always good for a laugh, and I think it actually makes a lot of sense in the context of the younger generations being far more concerned about the image of their sex rather than actually having it.

Actually if you take the word "all-important" out of that statement than most of human history has viewed sex like that.

finally a decent iteration of this meme
>>15816876
there are lots of "smart" people who are really good at particular jobs who are into some dumb shit. Some of them pick astrology. Others pick cult stuff. The claim that smart people tend to like astrology more than average people is questionable though. people like to talk about how "smart" people are into astrology as justification for its correctness when literally all evidence points to the contrary.

I'm not sure if I even want to. I've had girls in bed with me and hate it when they try to do anything sexual. Guys have hit on me too, and I don't like that either, so pretty sure I'm not gay. I really just want an asexual gf.
What should I do /lit/?

You should never read more than one chapter per day of a book. The author intends for you to take a break between chapters.

He does not. I just spoke to him

And I intend to break the author between chapters.

Well, I have to let it out.

This is essentially not so recent (even for mid-'00s) variant of Pascal with some Oberon features and some cosmetic changes. For example, hex notation is changed from $xx because… you know… it's dollar sign… symbol of economical dominance of globalists, etc.

So we had a couple of loonies wanking over Magical Russian Letters and freeing themselves from oppressive dollar sign in programming, and they have remained a complete curiosity. But now there is another group of loonies freeing themselves from oppressive master and slave designations in programming, and, boy, the effect is quite different.

Why is language learning so mythologized and shrouded by bullshit? It's literally grammar + vocabulary. Seriously, how did these retarded methods spring up?

>>15815902
Now this is some dumb monoglot pseudery. I doubt you can even code. We're not there yet. Automated frequency vocab lists still have to be verified manually since there's too much ambiguity involved.

>>15818530
Just apply an ad hoc neural network to an unlimited 3-dimensional array. Yes, there are minimal edge-cases that the average blooser won't catch with his fish net carp code but you can easily insert a dummy plug filter into the collated list and filter results manually with a little extra code? With reasonable discernment even... You know, like an active reader/learner does? I guess it's no surprise that the NEETs on 4chan can only code in amateurish standard library jargon that piles Google Perfect results into their fat gaping maws. If you can't hack it, get good.
>>
>>15818437
Everyone wants to make a buck however they can, if they can do it by coming up with bullshit methods to learn a language they will do it, and there's no shortage of retards who want to learn a language the "easy way" without putting in the work that will pay for it.
That being said, the natural method is kino.
