    oh dear …… the boomerang led to the invention of flight and drones …..

  22. Fauxboringinal claims the boomerang led to the invention of the propellor, the drone et al

    FMD this is weapons grade stupid, and no one called bullshit.

  23. the not very bright Marcus

    Carpe …. I guess that with a panel full of teachers they will interrupt each other … Otherwise put me down for 15 … and thank you for your work at making this almost bearable

  28. These people could put valium to sleep

  29. Eddie is passionate about maths, all good, but a lot of kids aren’t.

    Onto the student who is bitching about the stress and boredom of doing the same texts.

    Wait until you hit the job market sweetpea.

  30. Curlylox apologises to a student because she is bored, that is why they fail you dumbass.

    Inspire them, motivate them you second rate hack.

  31. the not very bright Marcus

    Carpe … the consensus on tonight’s panel is MORE FUNDING !!

  32. Bushkid

    Hmmm, education. My own experience is that apart from the necessities like reading, spelling, grammar and maths, much of the rest of it is wasted on the young. Either that or I had some seriously boring teachers. Except in the areas I was really interested in in senior high school – geography (geology), zoology and languages.

    It’s only in my more adult years that I really appreciated the likes of Shakespeare, and discovered why I’d been tortured with trigonometry.

  33. Why do these people bang on about getting an atar (whatever the fvk that is), try telling your students to look at the trades. My son did and he is nearly 25 on six figures (fine really low six figures, but WTF, he is still 24 for 4 weeks).

  34. Bushkid

    Yep, boredom with any subject will see a student just not try. Inspiring teachers do make a difference.

  35. the not very bright Marcus

    You are spot on bushkid …. how they made something that turns out to be interesting into an hour of boredom

  36. Carpe … the consensus on tonight’s panel is MORE FUNDING !!

    Wait – WHAT? – shills want more OPM, never saw that coming.

    Entertainment double plus!
    No one is game to muzzle the bullsh1t pouring forth from teh Abo Industry?
    Traditional drones?
    LMFAO!

  38. the not very bright Marcus

    Naplan ….OMG !! no one should ever be assessed about their effectiveness …… Oh … except in the real world

  39. Inspiring teachers do make a difference.

    I remember clearly 2 from my high school years – Ag with Pop Jury and Commerce with Mr Rufo, both of them could make folding a hanky seem interesting.

  40. RobK

    Im still waiting for a new power supply board for my satellite decoder to arrive in the mail. Sounds like I’m not missing a lot. Keep up the charitable work everyone.

  41. Naplan ….OMG !! no one should ever be assessed about their effectiveness …… Oh … except in the real world

    Having seen a lot of the Oz education system graduates fail in offshore work, i’m not surprised. Accountability for your work and work ethic seems to escape them.

  42. the not very bright Marcus

    Yes Carpe ….. my old principal Wes Muir …. “work ,force and energy “…physics explained for nuffies like me … a fantastic class … everyone shut up because he taught us interesting things and helped develop my lifelong interest in engineering …..The rest were crap

  43. Yes Carpe ….. my old principal Wes Muir

    My Ag teacher taught us to make bubblegum, best 3 classes ever. It was floury crap that tasted of mint sauce, but it was wonderful.

  44. the not very bright Marcus

    Ms Curly sooks up because she works hard for nearly 6 hour a day ( with 12 weeks annual leave and pretty much unsackable)

  45. Tim Neilson

    Actually I think that boredom is an essential part of educating school students.
    Make them stick to a dull task till it’s finished and done properly.
    Do it again next day, and the day after…
    That’s about the most important skill that can be drilled into them.

  46. Actually I think that boredom is an essential part of educating school students.

    Tim you just described my day

  47. the not very bright Marcus

    Yes Tim , but … Holden and Ford have closed down so the need for people to put wheelnuts on for an 8 hour shift is diminishing

  48. egg_

    So, the Abo Industry’s standard blurb on Q&A is a sugar coated “white can’ts!”?

  49. Next question should the Oz model of education be like Finlands?

    Answer – No

    aaaaahahahahahahahaha

  50. Pete of Perth

    Just saw the 1st ACTU ad saying what filthy capitalist bastards bosses and companies are.

  51. Bushkid

    Marcus, our English lit teacher made Julius Caesar so boring it put me off Shakespeare totally until my hubby, decades later, convinced me to watch the Brannagh version of Henry V. I was hooked from then on, of course. Saw the John Bell production of JC a few years ago (not the current one), and loved it.

  52. Onto the beat up on Catholic private Schools

    Snowcone – “when the students see inequity”

    Fuck off, those kids are full of hormones, soda and fried food.

    Their idea of inequity is who has more chips than the next guy.

  53. the not very bright Marcus

    I do love the private vs, Govt funding argument ….I have read the propaganda , but then found out that taxpayers tip in half as much to educate a kid at a private school than we do for a public student .

  54. Tim Neilson

    Yes Tim , but … Holden and Ford have closed down so the need for people to put wheelnuts on for an 8 hour shift is diminishing

    It’s not just low level jobs where boredom could kick in dangerously.

    Do you think that dentists get a thrill every time they have to do the whole routine meticulously to put in a proper filling?

    I hope that the maintenance crews on aircraft don’t have a short attention span.

    Have you ever tried reading a 200 page share sale agreement or lending document and make absolutely sure you don’t miss something that could cost your client millions?

  55. Schools – 2 systems exist side by side – except private gets 8K whilst public gets 12K

    Sod.Off.Swampies.

  56. Bushkid

    Funny how the continual pouring of ever-increasing amounts of money into “edumkashun” doesn’t seem to be producing corresponding increase in achievements……….

  57. Curlylox wants more OPM for – “needs based funding”

    Has a moment of clarity about school funding

    And back to shilling for more OPM

  58. the not very bright Marcus

    Bushkid … I agree … shakespeare was a class to sleep through … recently I fell in love with “taming of the shrew ” Shakespeare retold , a BBC one of about 10 years ago …. I cry every time I see it ….fantastic rendition …. sorry , I digress

  59. Bushkid

    Their idea of inequity is who has more chips than the next guy.

    Nailed it, Carpe!

    All this adult gobbledegook double-speak shit means nothing to school kids, or huniversity ones either. Just teach the kids what they need to know to get by, to be able to think for themselves.

  60. I’m curious why is it that Oz is throwing a ton of cash at education, and they still want more, but your students are getting dumber?

    Riddle me that Batman

  61. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Marcus, our English lit teacher made Julius Caesar so boring it put me off Shakespeare totally until my hubby, decades later, convinced me to watch the Brannagh version of Henry V

    My English Literature teacher made “Romeo and Juliet” so boring that it wasn’t until the school screened the Zeferilli film that I understood the themes – two drippy kids in love, against a monumental feud between their families.

  62. the not very bright Marcus

    I apologise Tim , you are quite correct … I am so lucky to have a job that jumps around all over the place , it suits my ADHD quite well . I have the utmost respect for those that can maintaing concentration for longer that 10 minutes .

  63. Bushkid … I agree … shakespeare was a class to sleep through

    I did Julius Caesar in 4th Form – i loved it, but in my defense i came from a family of readers not TV heads.

  64. Bushkid

    Digress away, Marcus! The best Taming of the Shrew I’ve ever seen was the movie version with Burton and Taylor. I was too young at the time to realise it was Shakespeare.
    The very worst versions of any of old Willie’s works were by that pompous pommie Sir whatsisname that Robin Williams did a brilliant rendition of “performing” “Hard Days Night”. Olivier, that’s the one. Boooooring!

  65. the not very bright Marcus

    Abbott666 …. bingo !!

  66. Fauxboriginal goes AbbottSatan666 and the Fauxboriginal on the panel agrees.

    What a douchenozzle, victim hunting, toerag, fauxboriginal fucktard, window licking, grievance mongering, retard.

  67. the not very bright Marcus

    so …. a bunch of teachers are chatting on the show … and we are all passing notes around ….

  68. Curlylox – schools are schools – and there are too many people trying to tell us how to do our job.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of construction peanut.

    ooooh they work so hard – no you don’t, spend a month with me dealing with the client, finance, build program and subbies then come back and see me.

    Too much paperwork.
    Now who was responsible for the high load of paperwork?
    Labor governments, teacher unions and educational academics.
    The very people the ABC luvvies look to for answers.
    Trump the schools. Drain the swamp.

    Yes – because sometimes you have to just vent your spleen at those you hold in contempt.

    I love the smell of sanctimony in the morning!

    Are they folders or scrunchers?

  74. We have a winner!

    Thank you i shall now dress in the yellow suit from “The Mask” and dance across the room.

  75. Curlylox – “One of the first things when you learn to become a teacher” – A lobotomy?

  76. Are they folders or scrunchers?

    1 ply or 3 ply?

  77. the not very bright Marcus

    You will have to read Choice magazine to know which paper is best (choice magazine ..the teacher’s shopping bible)

  78. OK Troops – Interruptions came in at 2

    A disappointing effort from snowcone , but the not very bright Marcus was out by 1.

    So close yet so far brother.

  79. I’m done Troops

    Thank you for playing

    Oyasumi Nasai

  80. the not very bright Marcus

    Thank you Carpe … closest I have ever been …I thought halfway through that I was aiming too high ..But I still got a quivver in the loins at the thought of being so close .

  81. Bushkid

    Thanks Carpe, as ever.

    ‘Night all!

  82. iain russell

    Mercifully I am in a galaxy far, far away… but the boomerang thing?!? You are making that up, shoooorly?!

  83. Nob

    Robin Williams did a brilliant rendition of “performing” “Hard Days Night”. Olivier, that’s the one.

    Peter Sellers as Loz Olivier:

    If boomerang invented propellor then my farts invented jet propulsion.

  84. Old Lefty

    Not on Q and A, but did anyone else notice the ABC today mourning the loss of the East German workers’ and peasants’ paradise?

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-10-09/east-germany-and-the-fall-of-the-berlin-wall/10334066

    Like the Greens, they are beyond satire. Remember, comrades, Comrade Stalin The Great’s only possible faults were (1) his lack, so far as we know, of a clitoris; (2) his death.
