      There's a reason why my parents traumatized to get high grades in school then told me I simply had to pass once I got in a prestigious university.

        What if I don't want to do moron tier labor? What if I just want to get paid for knowing things? What should I do when I find out these jobs that pay you just for knowing things pay a lot more too?

      Why do white collar workers think that people's backs and legs are irrevocably damaged the second you pick up a 4x2?

      The bad for your health stuff seems to be total projection. Every tech worker I know personally in their late 20s is complaining about a bad back, neck pain and headaches. Something I don't get working the most heavy of trades.

      Construction workers do get bad knees, but that's by the time they're in their 50s unless they're overweight.

    Before the 20th century it was very much a class thing. Few people had the money to send their kids to college, so if you had a degree, any degree you were one of the most educated people in the world from a good family. This bias continued for years and it was simply assumed people with a degree were qualified for office and managerial positions for most of the 20th century.

    Because most people who did higher education could actually make more money especially in the past. And still today given you didn't do some moronic degree

    Because it enables one to do other stuff besides "lifting x and putting it down at location y". Peter Hagendorf for example was a Landsknecht who got wounded at Magdeburg but due to his ability to read and write became an accountant for the army - later on an advocatus and even military judge. After the war he became the mayor of a town.

    I don't even know what to say to that. That has got to be THE dumbest thing I've read on IQfy, by a mile. I'm not even kidding.

      It's the kind of shit that ought to alert you that op is trolling in theory, but in practice I've seen dumber takes elsewhere so he might even be serious.

    In medieval times they would be sent for scholastic training to become clergy which was the most important profession of the time. Much of the Canterbury Tales centers on the conflict arising between the clergy and the not learned classes, the Millers Tale being a great example.

    I meant the Reeves Tale clearly. Sorry. Simpkin the Miller and the students.

    the twist on the meme is realy heckin wholesome

    iirc in medival times there where only 3 things to study law, theology and medicine
    so the first two are made up, thats why you can pretty much only read about them and hardly get first hand expierince, medicine however represents the ideal of education look you wouldn´t want your Doctor to find out what kills and what helps by random chance, wouldn´t you? so the guy better have an idea of what to do before going to work

    now today the numbers for both, made up bollocks and actual usefull stuff have increased if it is still an 1:2 ratio, i do not know
    and when i think back to my classes in order to do some things you simply have to understand some concepts, physical laws, mathematics, etc. in order to have a chance of doing them right. and don´t get me wrong expierence can´t be replaced but if you lack the 'basics' you have no chance of understanding what just happened thus gaining nothing

    tl;dr some things are complex and require prior knowlegde
