The Purpose of Studying

I have been thinking about this for a while: What is the use of studying? I know that some of the subjects we use in school become our basis in our future jobs, but most of these things don't even apply to most jobs! I mean if you wanted to become a tailor, than what the hell would chemistry do you good??..... So what do you guys think?


I know subjects at school are not really that pointless for example, like Math and English. I mean we do need to know how to count and read right?


Well, it is nice to be educated, cuz you can join in any conversation if you know at least the basics. But if you want to talk about jibberish stuff, then stay ignorant. Even if I was wanting to become a tailor, a decent conversation with educated people is always refreshing. Studying is also a weapon that fights against ignorance. But well, I guess everyone has his own preferences.

I see. So ignorance is worse than I thought. I heard in one T.V. show that ignorance is a blessing . Forgot the title.

Work experience counts more than grades at a job interview. Studying is just to keep young people off the streets i suppose and give them basic life skills.

Ignorance is the main cause why the world looks at some parts the way it does. People with no education are cursed to live forever in their hutts, unless they have some special talents, in sports for example. And it is not ignorance that is a blessing it is stupidity. People with no intelligence won't even take care of that matter. They live their way it was given to them. But being ignorant is something else. Ignoring basic informations can be pretty bad at times. I prefer to be informed at least a bit, even if the topic doesn't really interest me.

Oh and also, if you get dementia, or any other illness that will bug your brain/memory
