Let’s face it: School times were fun, but we were taught a lot of stuff that seems like it was the MOST important thing ever.
So much so that if you got it wrong, you’re a dead duck walking.
Fast forward to your life now and you glance back and wonder – why the hell was I learning that in the first place?!
Let’s take a memory jog and see 10 things which we learnt that has no use whatsoever in life today.
1. How to Play a Recorder
All you learnt were five songs at most, and the rest was you blowing the flute like it’s a trumpet. No, seriously. Just be honest.
2. The Tongue Map for Tastebuds
Yes, you’ll only feel saltiness in one SPECIFIC section of your tongue, and nowhere else. What a lie that was. Because when that chili came, it struck us everywhere.
3. The Triangle Way
Yes, so there’s four types of triangles. And then there’s the Pythagoras theorem. But you applied that fundamental knowledge last when again?
4. Name the Planets
Just because it was important to know about the universe. And then suddenly, Pluto disappeared from our memory.
5. Finding The Mode

6. Grow a Seed with a Wet Paper Towel
Just because we should know how life begins in a plant.

9. Prime Numbers

Memorising every element on this chemistry table made you a hardcore chemistry student. Also understanding how elements work or fight to their deaths with each other. Here’s a recap just in case.
