Wow. Haven't been here in forever. =o *gasp*

I shall update anyway though!

PASK has had a fun year. Last year in the gym the evil school officials painted over PASK territory! We got them back though, by starting a NeoPASK on the other side's bleachers. Mwhaha!!

This year we're in the other gym though. I don't know which gym is east and which is west, but I know that this gym is in the south ( o_O ). Stupid school people can't tell which direction's which... Anyway, we took over some bleachers there to create a .. err.. Neo NeoPASK! (If I knew which direction that gym was supposedly in, I'd just call it "East/West" PASK.. As a matter of fact, can we just call it "South PASK"? :P ) We have carved and marked it in already, as did our good friend group WO5.

Teh King has been going over ideas for a PASK video game lately! Him and Teh PASK Soldier have come up with some excellent ideas so far. TKoTM bows to them. Of course, don't go looking for it now. It'd take quite a few years until Teh King has been through enough college to work it all out. I wish him luck with that...


Speaking of PASK in the future, next year the majority of us shall be Seniors, and ready to leave this retched school. Shall we search for new members? Possibly of the Sophomore variety? (as most Freshmen are fresh out of middle school and could just as easily turn anti-social or *shudder* preppy... They don't quite know themselves yet.) Otherwise, TKoTM was also thinking of initiation rights for new members. Existing members will be granted with a power of seniority, wherein we can demand respect from new members and they must obey. After all, new members right have to learn the ropes of PASK (excuse the oxymoron) society. We would first have to determine if they are Anti-Social enough. After that, we must be sure that they are Pro. The "Kid" part should be a given...

But initiation isn't just to push around someone new. It is for them to prove themselves worthy, and show that they can be loyal even under common society's pressure. The only way to truly tell if one is PASK material is to get to know them. Do they like the government? Do they like Georgie Bush? Do they like school? *chokes* Perhaps we can give a list.. like this:

friends
learning
school (yes, different than learning)
family
image
team sports
fashion
respect

Then ask them to put them in order of importance, 10 being most important. We can leave open a space for exceptions at the bottom, such as them listing team sports as a higher importance because it's been a family tradition for them. In that case it can go by. The list could be refined a little, but I'm sure you all get the point.

That's enough for now. I'll have to try and remember, then poke Teh King, Teh Soldier, and others to remind them to come here... *POKE POKE POKE*

So let's see - it's spring break. Joy! Everyone is hanging out with their friends - going to the movies and having family social gathering.

Social

That word just makes me cringe. Eck!
As for me I am at home - typing away for my stories that have be lacking in. I think it's the best way to spend spring break. Once I get back into school I have to mad rush to get a report done - it's on Down Syndrome. Joy? Nope.

Anyway enjoy your spring break as much as you all can in your own anti-social or social -cringes- way.

AMERICA'S SCHOOLS ARE BUILT TO CONFORM CHILDREN TO THE ADULT'S LIKING!!! WE WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG!!

http://www.labouroflove.org/education/public-schooling/next-frontier-education/



"Friday, 25 June 2004


The American educational system was modeled after the Prussian Army, an organization skilled in transforming ordinary citizens into soldiers who follow orders without hesitation. Factory forms of education were needed to feed the emerging industrial society and children were the raw materials of these factories. Social engineers, anticipating the needs of the emerging factory society, took their cues from the military and fashioned our present system using simple Pavlovian conditioning, behavior modification, external rewards and
punishments. Like bottles in an assembly line parenting styles followed the model set by these institutions.
Soon what had never been before became common place, expected. The social engineering goal implicit in the original design became transparent. You can see it today. Each morning millions of parents obediently place their children on the conveyor belts of these institutions with the best of intentions.

The social engineering goals of American education may have served a specific need at a specific time and in this light may have been “well-intended.” The industrial society is gone however, and so is the need for the kind of human being this system was designed to produce. The intent imbedded in the original design remains however, and like the Sorcerer’s Apprentice keeps grinding out the same kind of human being year after year.

Referring to a Carnegie study, Joseph Chilton Pearce points out that only five percent of everything we learn in our lives we learn in school. The remaining ninety-five percent is the result of direct experience. And of this five percent we learn in school most remember only three to five percent for any length of time.

Bottom line productivity of three to five percent of five percent may have been adequate to meet the social engineering needs of our emerging industrial society. But not in today, not in our brave new future shocked world. Gordon Moore, an inventor of the integrated circuit, who later went on to run Intel, noted years ago that the surfaces of transistors are shrinking approximately fifty percent every two years. Every two years we get twice the circuitry running
at twice the speed for the same price. In human terms the adult brain possesses 100 billion neurons. By most calculations 100 billion bits of RAM will be standard equipment in computers in the next five years.

This exponential growth is known as Moore’s Law of Accelerating Returns. Merrill-Lynch, feeling the impact of Moore’s Law, estimates that "fifty percent of the average employee's skills will be outdated in three to five years.” The faster information and technology grow the
faster our approaches to parenting and education become obsolete.
Parenting and educational models assume that children must be trained in certain skills, embody certain information in order to become productive citizens, which is a nice way of saying, “to get a good job.” This translates into curriculum, standards, tests and grades, measurements to insure that the assembly line is producing properly. Standardized curriculum and “teaching to the tests” create mechanical human beings. Robotics, information technologies and very soon
genetic human engineering and nanotechnologies are more efficient, more cost effective. The industrialized human beings our educational system was designed to produce suddenly seem clumsy, oddly out of date.

Reformers, hoping to keep up, tinker with the conveyor belt, starting earlier each year, prenatal testing, pre-preschool testing and coming soon, the latest designer genes. Inefficient accessories, recesses, physical education, art and music have been eliminated making room for more tests and more drills. Despite these efforts the antiquated assembly-line falls further behind. Large scale social systems cannot meet the demand. They can’t adapt fast enough. Physicists remind us that problems can’t be solved at the level of the problem.

Understanding this, visionaries have long proclaimed that the system can’t be fixed. Like educational reform, recycling is an example of a bad idea that looks good. Recycling is a bad idea because it promotes the manufacture, use and disposal of wasteful toxic products. A deeper response would be to create products that are not toxic or wasteful. Reform is not the answer. It is time for a deeper response to the challenge of parenting and to education.

Responding deeply calls into question basic assumptions. Educating children, for example, is not the next frontier. Children aren’t the problem, never have been. Children are naturally explosive learners. Maria Montessori described the “absorbent mind” of the child. Piaget defined the primary characteristic of childhood as “unquestioned acceptance of the given.” The last decade of brain research confirms these observations. Human development is experience dependent. The outer environment and the inner world of brain development are
two sides of a complex interacting system. Experience with the environment alters the brain’s structure, chemistry, and genetic expression, often profoundly, and throughout life. It is the environment that sculpts the developing brain.

We can’t fix the system and children aren’t the problem. So, what else is left? Individual adults, what Joseph Chilton Pearce refers to as the “model imperative.” Adults are the dominate element that define and control the environment children experience. The failure of large scale social systems and latest brain science return responsibility for child development to individual adults; to moms and dads, to families, and their personal social networks, now supported by technologies that render most traditional classrooms obsolete.

With the speed, passion and whole-systems approach that took us to the Moon we are now challenged to awaken and develop a new and fundamentally different adult model, one that sees through the false hopes and false fears imposed by our current forms of parenting and education. Only such a model can mentor a new generation of children and through them a new intelligent, creative, sustainable culture.
The typical adult mind, however, being so deeply conditioned by its parenting and educational experience, has lost the capacity to see beyond the conditioning imposed by these experiences
. Overcoming this conditioning in today’s adults perhaps the greatest challenge we face. Moving towards this new frontier challenges another assumption, that education is basically about information. Moore’s Law predicts even faster rates of change and sooner than expected. Look around. Present knowledge is not stable enough to meet today’s challenges and certainly not tomorrow’s.

Simple observation shows that learning is performance based. The states of our body and mind as we meet a challenge shapes our response to that challenge, it shapes our performance. We call the memory of our performance “learning.” Performance and learning are therefore “state specific.” States are primary. They come first. Specific skills and content emerge from specific learning states.
Athletes call optimum states the Zone, researchers call it Flow, children call it Play. Optimum states express as optimum performance, optimum learning. In these states the full spectrum of intelligence, body and mind, is available to meet any challenge fully and completely. In optimum states we can learn anything, adapt to any challenge.
State specific learning and performance shifts the focus of development from intellect and mechanical memory to true adaptive intelligence. Educational and parenting strategies then realign to value and nurture this intelligence with its limitless capacity to adapt, rather than specific data-skill-sets that become so quickly obsolete. The next frontier in parenting and education means adults cultivating optimum states in their daily lives and modeling these states in their
relationship with children.

The state of the adult-child relationship becomes the curriculum as they meet and adapt to ever new challenges together. Simply stated, our challenge is to help individual adults become adaptive agile learners
just like the children they are mentoring. We are at the threshold. A completely new model is emerging. Attention is shifting from child development to adult development. Moore’s Law is shifting
responsibility for mentoring this and future generations from large scale social systems to individual adults supported by technology and personal networks. Educational and parenting strategies are shifting from “content-driven conditioning” to the cultivation and development of “optimum learning states.” Only by following intelligent, adaptive, creative, learning adults, something our present systems discourage, will our children develop the capacity to lead humanity into a sustainable future. Developing competent adult learners, passionate individuals who are learning explosively right alongside the children
they love, this is the next frontier in education."



Don't worry if some parts of this make your brain hurt- I think everyone in this Community right now is Brick-educated... So it's not expected that you understand it all XP. Hope you understood the parts I put in bold, though.

See that? We were right. This country is breeding conformity and trying to discourage individuality in children! (*imagines Teh King screaming "AHH! IT'S THE ANTHEM!!!" XD*) May I hear some comments for Kate's awesome find? =P

This is the year where hope fails you
The test subjects run the experiments
And the bastards you know, is the hero you hate
But cohesing is posssible if we strive
Theres no reason, theres no lesson
No time like the present, telling you right now
What have you got to lose, what have you got to lose
Except your soul...who's with us!

I fight for the unconventional
My right, and its unconditional
I can only, be as real as i can
The disadvantage is
I never knew the plan
This isn't the way just to be a martyr
I cant, walk alone any longer
I fight, for the ones that cant fight
And if I lose, at least I tried

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggots

I won't, be the inconsequential
I won't, be the wasted potential
I can make it, as severe as I can
Until you realize
You'll never take a stand
It isn't, just a one-side aversion
We've dealt, with a manic diversion
And I won't, let the truth be perverted
And I won't leave another victim deserted

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggots

Do you understand? (yes)
Do you understand? (yes)
Do you understand? (yes)
Do you understand? (yes)

Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)

We fight til no one can fight us
We live, and no one can stop us
We pull when we're pushed too far
And the advantages is
The bottom line is
We never, had to fight in the first place
We only, had to spit back at their face
We won't, walk alone any longer
What doesnt kill us, only makes us stronger

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggots

Do you understand (yes)
Do you understand (yes)
Do you understand (yes)
Do you understand (yes)

Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)
Say it again say it again (we won't die)


Hell yeh :D

One problem down, a bunch more to go. Thank you kate for that self-discovering, yet still funny (^^) speech. Thanks also for putting the anonymous thing out, you just made p_a_s_k a better site. Anywho, i figured out what you could do kate, you can get, Moony Wormtail and Prongs to support, and tell them to tell at least two friends, and so on and so forth, that way we get lots of people from different social groups instead of working on just one. My theory is that if one person from one social group (take goths for instantce who all look exactly alike and do whatever the other does in all but extreme cases) aids us, others in that social group will follow suit. Hopefully the theory is right..... heres to hoping! =D

From now on all posting is limited to people on the Guild's "friends" list. This means MEMBERS ONLY!! No more annonymous comments shall be made, as, clearly, "annonymous" is not our friend ^^. But still for that preppy fool- Since when do preps beat the crap out of anti-socials? I mean, wouldn't you be too scared to get a little blood and dirt on your pretty little fist? That'd be the most pathetic thing in the world- have one of those little sparkly preps "beat the crap out of you". I mean, is that even possible? Don't preps try their hardest to appear "non-violent", even though they support war and the death of animals on a daily business. Let's not mention the sweatshops that they get all their supposed "designer" clothes from.

"Omg, that shirt is lyk so0o0o cute!"
"Why thank u, some little children in Taiwan made it!"

Hmm... I'm getting humanitarian here. Sorry, hypocrites just PISS ME OFF! Maybe we should be defining "anarchy" here. Anarchy means no government at all, in case anybody was confused. If we were in student government, they'll still technically be a government, except it'd be a COMPLETELY different party (The ANTI-Socialists ^^). And we will be showing that you don't have to lie about yourself or be bulimic to make the student council. The reason the anti-socials are the way they are, is cuz they're honost with themselves and others, but others don't like who they truely are and push them down. If we all made up crap about ourselves and laughed at stupid jokes, as well as keep our true hearts hidden under 10 pounds of makeup and sports clothes, I'm sure we'd be just as popular. Well, we know we're not perfect and are happy to admit it. It's such a relief to not have to keep up a false image about yourself, simply to get others to like you.

Anyone thinking of nominating someone for vice??? *coughcough* ^.~ . I hope there's not a grade requirement. Hey, I just realized... we don't have to reach out to just the anti-social kids, but also to other "groups" they have been WAY under-represented in past school elections. Such as the foreign kids (who's in more than one foreign language class.. AND ACING THEM? ^.~)! Or the short kids (CLEARLY under represented! Except with our king ^^ )! D00ds, if we could get the support of not just anti-social kids, but basically anyone considered "under" by the prep empire, we're sure to kick ass at this... Besides, we all know we're FORCED to vote anyway, and most kids just choose some random box and check it (cuz all preps running are the same) o_0 . IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE! DEMOCRACY '05 OR DIE!!!!!
