17 thoughts on “Things You Learned in School But Never Used Again in Life–Ever!

  1. I like to think that somehwere in our educational journey that all of this “useless” knowledge is bestowed upon us to help us figure out what what we want to do in life without actually telling anyone what kind of a job they can get by pursing calculus or knowing the different species of dinos that coorespond to various bone fragments. I think that if they just told you in school “if you want to do this, then you must learn that.” and then, only then will the light bulb go off and then we’ll all understand why we’re learning the darn thing in the first place. Thanks for linking up this post with us at #OMHGWW.

  2. I had to chuckle at this list, it is all so true though! We will never have to know how to dissect a frog… or deal with algebra again after school, unless you go into a profession that needs those skills. Fortunately, I don’t use either of those skills anymore! 😉 Sim x

  3. I remember dissecting a frog and thinking, “But, why tho?” Lol.

    Also, I still haven’t had to use the Pythagreom Thereom(sp?) that my algebra teacher insisted on.


  4. I like your list and I hated school. BUT in the big view it is good to have a bank of general knowledge. We may be amazed at how often we do draw on bits of knowledge that we hated learning back then. Then of course, we now have Mr. Google to ask.


  5. Thank you for this, and how very true it is! I have often thought the same! Thank God I didn’t take calculus! Over from your Traffic Jam.

  6. I’m a dinosaur fan, but I agree that understanding concepts is more important than useless memorization. Remember spelling. Unfortunately still need to know this one. LOL. Looking forward to additions on your list.
