It makes me want to just give up hope. So much for the American public education system. I just keep reminding myself that half the people I meet have below average intelligence.

Why do you assume this is due to the American education system?

Good point. Maybe just because our system has deteriorated so much. Like the story from a teacher who easily convinced his students that the ancient Roman Empire was located in southern California. I wish I could find that link now. More stuff here.

I'm still trying to figure out what "the hall of cost" is supposed to mean.

Yeah it's probably autocorrect that messed it up.

I blame Steve jobs, not the education system.

Yeah, after I posted that I was walking to the lunchroom going "hail of coast", "hall of cast", hmm, "hallofcost". Oh! Holocaust. Jeez. Not even close.
