Things I learnt in school...but didn't realise it.

School is a place of learning, of education, that prepares us for life. Here's some of the things I learned.

- Shouting at someone helps them to learn more easily
- Cold showers after exercise are good for you
- Standing in the rain in shorts, thin shirt and studded boots is exercise
- If someone doesn't understand you, they are thick. It has nothing to do with your presentation skills
- Bullying people is the road to success
- Good looking people are the only ones capable of holding positions of responsibility
- There is only one answer to a question
- Violent rulers are to be admired for bringing stability
- Poor people are irrelevant
- Violence is the natural human condition
- Men and Women should always be separated as they are a bad influence on each other
- Elders are betters and are always wiser and more intelligent
- Punctuality is very important...unless you're in charge
- Everyone has to dress the same way...unless you're in charge
- Respect must always be shown...to people in charge
- Tribal loyalties are good...to your own tribe
- Other people have problems...you just whine
- You should always have your own opinion on matters...providing that it agrees with received wisdom
- Sarcasm is a sign of stupidity
- Teachers are never sarcastic...they are witty

Feel free to add to the list.
