The state of things
  • I did post it as a joke. Note how I started my comment with "I think their point is", that isn't my view :)

    There's also difference between pretending to miss for a joke that dividing things into quartiles necessarily means a bottom 25% exists (what the meme does). And noting that it's weird failing people based on how they do compared to others and not if they actually actually learn (me suggesting what the user JackGreenEarth was probably trying to get at).

  • The state of things
  • I think their point is that you could have people in the bottom quartile who learned what they are expected to, are capable, but are failed anyway because of how they compare to others.

    (Assuming curved tests really work like that, never bothered reading the pretty long grading policies)

  • I imagine the downvoters assume the post is making a point about Muslims in general, which it isn't.

    It isn't Islamophobic thinking Muslims are transphobic, they are. Much like most of the world outside the West.

  • If posts were signed, it wont matter what instance youre posting from since your identity would be tied to your public key and not the account on a Mastodon/lemmy/etc server.

    Thats more decentralized. It helps when you get banned, a server shuts down etc.

  • [Trailer] "The Glassworker" : Pakistan's First-Ever 2D Animated Film
  • I'ts honestly hilarious that a Pakistani movie only seems to have white characters.

    The description of jinn as being made of smokeless fire along with some being good and others bad, are exactly the Quranic descriptions of them, so its nice seeing some of the creator's culture make its way to the film.

    The disputed territories I imagine are a reference to Jammu and Kashmir. One of the characters called the dispute "idiocy", interesting.
