    [–] Y’all ever read something so untrue that you wished it had never been thought up? toshirotf 1 points ago in iamverysmart

    I can't because it doesn't exist

    What?

    Not me, who simply shared an anecdote from a friend

    What?

    Your comment did not share an anecdote: https://www.reddit.com/r/iamverysmart/comments/9il21b/yall_ever_read_something_so_untrue_that_you/e6l8u5r/

    It's OK though, it's not like I told you. And even if I did, it's not like you responded getting all upset at being told you needed to learn to read things a bit more carefully.

    You keep insulting my reading comprehension and yet you make more grammatical errors, lmaooo...

    Yes, I typed out a comment longer than 1 line. Yes, I spent time to tell you that the original comment provided a link to an article that was fake news. Yes, I called the original poster out on it. If all you can say about that is making replies that essentially repeat "you're so upset and you can't read," maybe you shouldn't be saying anything in the first place.

    Not only that, but the admin who posted this has no posting history whatsoever.

    YOU have no post history. And you just fabricated information.

    You are who you hate.

    [–] Y’all ever read something so untrue that you wished it had never been thought up? toshirotf 1 points ago in iamverysmart

    What was there to read? It's literally 3 words.

    Also, if you're going to condescend someone on their reading comprehension, at least tell them that without grammatical errors. Do people that stay calm when being told to read something more carefully take more time responding to wrong people?

    I get what you meant, but maybe don't insult people on things you can't do yourself.

    [–] Y’all ever read something so untrue that you wished it had never been thought up? toshirotf 1 points ago in iamverysmart

    How? Do you really get what the point of this sub is?

    I wasn't trying to come off that way at all. Please tell me, in all seriousness, how I did.

    Your article is nonsense, it is actual fake news. It made a sweeping generalization off of looney data, and you were pretentious enough to share it and still keep it up even after several people have noted problems with it. Why do you keep it up, knowing you are spreading this fake news?

    I didn't misinterpret anything. You value worthless internet points over the truth. The least you could have done is made an edit after you'd been proven wrong saying that your article was inaccurate and misleading, and your source has a history of low-quality journalism. But you didn't. Instead, you accused me of not understanding your 3-word comment, told me to "read it again," and accused me of trying to act smart.

    To push this stupid narrative about the younger generation forward, you have proven something worse about yourself. I hope you feel comfortable with that, my guy. Peace

    What is this website? Not only did they analyze the stats for this article horribly (US comprised only 3% of answers? Why?), their other articles are the opposite of intellectual and are borderline conspiracy theories.

    In the end, your (/u/BagelJaengi's) comment was a better post for r/iamverysmart than the original submission, and comments like this from /u/Sparcrypt would be a great submission for /r/PhonesAreBad or something.

    [–] Chief Keef’s Home Robbed, Burglars Shoot at Police - XXL toshirotf 13 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in hiphopheads

    I think you want a serious reply so I'll give you one.

    Your original comment was:

    Why don’t i ever hear headlines like this in the “indieheads” subreddit? Oh right, different cultures.

    You followed that up with:

    Lol, I’m pointing out that yes, a predominantly black genre that glorifies violence, robberies, guns etc...is more prone to that kind of violence. This ain’t rocking science, unless you’re in denial about heliocentric solar system.

    I understand that your first comment was a rhetorical question but if you know the answer to it, and we are all aware of it, then why bother posting it in the first place? I just don't understand.

    I don't see where Chief Keef is claiming that racism caused this robbery, it is obvious that he knows the lifestyle he lives/has lived is a big part of why these crimes happen. But this robbery didn't even have anything to do with him, as I address below.

    Or are you just complaining that these crimes happen? I don't know what you want me to say about that. I don't see how you think that it's Chief Keef's fault for getting robbed when he lives in a gated community and hasn't responded to other's recent threats. The article specifically said:

    The bad news for the bad guys is LAPD had plainclothes officers patrolling the area due to the rash of burglaries lately. We're told cops intervened to thwart the burglary, and one suspect fired a shot -- which didn't hit anyone -- and then the chase was on.

    So... This had nothing to do with Chief Keef, even. It was just the gated community he was living in. It really just goes to show how uneducated and negligent you have to be to saying things that are disproven in the article you're talking about.

    If you're not even complaining about Chief Keef, and you're just complaining about black people in general, I'm even more lost because the article didn't say anything about the race of the burglars. In which case, I don't know how you got such inside information.

    Side note, when you say something like:

    This ain’t rocking science,

    unless you’re in denial about heliocentric solar system.

    You deserve all the downvotes coming to you. This is prime r/iamverysmart material. Not only do you misspell "rocket science" while talking about how ignorant others are, you go on to compare race issues to Solar System conspiracy theories. As an astronomy student, I honestly don't know how you see the correlation between the two. It kind of seems like you just wanted to use a new big word you learned in order to seem, I don't know, superior? In the end, you didn't even sound pretentious, you just sounded stupid.

    Like, is there anyone that even thinks the Solar System isn't heliocentric? How many geocentric people have you met in your lifetime? We've done a pretty good job of establishing that the Sun is at the center since the 17th century in the Western world, and even as early as the 11th century for the Islamic world. So again, prime r/iamverysmart material.

    Sorry, I don't know what part you're talking about.

    Faculty testing? Are you referring to the interview?

    [–] TIL 1/3 of Harvard students are legacies. toshirotf 1 points ago in todayilearned

    What? None of what you two are saying is true.

    1. That was the only personal observation, and I respectfully said it was open to debate.

    2. Even if it were an assumption, there is absolutely no reason to put words in my mouth. If you don't like what I say, you do not have the right to make up what I say.

    No facts, no statistics, just your own personal observations.

    • That the SAT doesn't take points away for being a certain ethnicity is a fact.

    • That racial/religious quotas were abolished is a fact.

    • That legacy status is not primary consideration depends on school but is overwhelmingly true. Most schools are open on what is most important/considered. You can check what they consider on pages like "Our Requirements."

    • That your SAT/SAT Subject Test scores aren't the sole determinant of acceptance is a fact. It's essentially becoming an entry requirement to have a certain score unless you can compensate.

    • That need-aware schools will take in students not applying for financial aid is another fact that is intuitive.

    And so on. Please stop making baseless claims. You cannot use lies as an argument. You cannot accuse people of "racism" if their goal is to make a more well-rounded and diverse student body.

    I've sourced the court document that opened Harvard's admissions procedures here and got downvoted. Someone else responded with articles writing about that document and got upvoted. This makes absolutely no sense.

    [–] TIL 1/3 of Harvard students are legacies. toshirotf 1 points ago in todayilearned

    Both of these articles are referencing the court document I just gave you.

    [–] TIL 1/3 of Harvard students are legacies. toshirotf 3 points ago in todayilearned

    That 3.7 stands out to me. When I compared the two, I meant a different tier from ~4.0 to ~3.9... 3.7 would be below average for any top-tier school regardless of AP count (That was way too much!)

    Still, you are right -- admissions are fickle, even the most qualified candidates can be rejected.

    [–] TIL 1/3 of Harvard students are legacies. toshirotf 0 points ago in todayilearned

    Like I've referenced several times, you can check how Harvard decided upon its applicants in the notes that were released.

    https://cases.justia.com/federal/district-courts/massachusetts/madce/1:2014cv14176/165519/420/0.pdf?ts=1529313878

    Notes Asian/Asian Americans students received are really the same as what you'd find for other students. Yes, it makes assumptions on culture and character, but this is based on interview and essay. Why is that racist?

    You may have better chances with their situation as a smaller minority, you also have better chances applying from South Dakota than California. Or Armenia than India. This doesn't mean they are anti-Californian or anti-Indian.

    If you want a basic explanation on how Harvard looks at applicants: https://blog.prepscholar.com/harvard-asian-admissions-lawsuit-application-strategy

    That’s not unreasonable, so you can go take your downvote and shove it.

    Okay. Have a nice day

    [–] TIL 1/3 of Harvard students are legacies. toshirotf 14 points ago in todayilearned

    I'm not going to make any assumptions because I don't know their situations or applications, and neither do you. I mean, for all we know, she got glowing recommendations, made herself a stand-out application beyond academics, made herself memorable in the interview, and had better essays.

    Scholarships at Princeton also do not have anything to do with academics. They offer need-based scholarships only, no merit-based scholarships... So, that should explain that.

    I should mention that Princeton is also a little different in that is known for being very pro-diversity. If you look at their demographics you can see that they try to balance out racial groups a bit more than other schools.

    I also think you're looking at this the wrong way. I guess there's no use arguing this on Reddit, but I don't see putting down and demeaning other professions and interests as an effective way of assessing people. Being a social worker is great... Princeton is very involved with service so I'm not surprised.

    [–] TIL 1/3 of Harvard students are legacies. toshirotf -6 points ago in todayilearned

    I did not make this claim...

    I don't understand why whenever I make this post defending rationally the admission procedures to these schools, people go on tangents and accuse of something I haven't done. And they always get upvoted, too.

    Please, if you cannot find any real criticism, then do not comment. Fabricated information and personal attacks are not arguments, they are grabs for upvotes and reassurance.

    Have a nice day
