The depressing world of teaching today


Albedo: great thick walls/snow earth located by albedo
--- the tip of mineral that is flat and can stack easy
--- the minerals that contain several species to the material
--- is when glaciers melt. Slowly.

Luster: minerals that tend to pass through the surface
--- some kind of minerals that are found in the desert

Clastic: the way something move through or around the Earth. That has to do with the surface
--- is when minerals in a sedimentary rock are not touching

Loess: a stream that is deflating of water

Porphyritic: in which gravity obtains pressure to the object

Q: What is a mineral? What is it made of? What is a rock?
A: Mineral is transported to the preexisting luster. It is made out of material and chemical. A rock is a building block...
A:...A rock is a solid that doesn't occur naturally and is made up of quartz.
A: A mineral is any natural organic resource. It is made out of heat. A rock is a mineral.

Q: What are the three agents of metamorphism? What is the role of each?
A: Solid - a thick layer of the earth's surface. Fluid - liquid passes through the sedimentary. Mafic - Fe and Mg iron rocks.

Q: How much (approximately) of the earth's water is freshwater? Where is most of it located? Where is most of the USABLE freshwater located?
A: 90% of the water on earth is freshwater. The most freshwater is located at Alaska. The most usable freshwater is located at California.
A: Most of the freshwater on Earth is somewhat fresh due to a lot of the freshwater underground. A lot of usable freshwater can be used if cleaned and filtered properly. Using water from the ocean is not considered freshwater b/c it has salt and other things in the ocean.
A: There is a 30% of freshwater on earth. The most freshwater is located in the oceans...

Q: Name and describe a desert feature that is a) formed by deposition and b) formed by erosion.
A: A rock pattern is a changed by deposition and erosion. In deposition the pattern is cloby [sic], these pattern is all over the place. In erosion the pattern changes to somewhat of a up and down or sideways pattern.

OMG !!! I feel for you. It is just some students don't care to learn. So therefore they just look stupid on tests. I mean come on those answers are just plainly from not paying attention. Stupid people.

Funnier when read with a large glass of wine in hand?
I love how some of them just try to squeeze in the big words, regardless of grammatical correctness. Like me, see?!

Yes, glass of wine. Schnapps before 10am. Whatever. This is what drives teachers to drink.

It makes me sad when people can't answer coherently in their native language. Also it makes me laugh.

My favourite is a stream that is deflating of water is at a loess... get it?
