Disclaimer: I am a kid. A teenager. Nearly 16. That said,
ADULTS SHOULD NOT LIE TO KIDS!!!!!
They told us at school that we were going to have PSAT tests today, that they were very important for college, and that our ability to get a scholarship could be improved by doing very well on these tests. We got “how-to” guides and practice questions and even an afternoon extra class if we wanted.
AND IT WAS ALL A LIE!!!!!
Only 11th grade’s test counted. NOT 9th and NOT 10th, but we all took it.
And now they’re gonna wonder why nobody studies for the next “really important”test or believes them the next time they tell us something. AAAAAACCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!
The PSAT’s are a crock of steaming shit. They don’t count for anything accept if you do really well, you can get a little certificate from the state board of education saying “omg, you aren’t retarded!” Very, very few (read: no) scholarships offered give a shit about your PSAT score, they only care about SAT, ACT and *maybe* AP’s. And while the state used to give out scholarships on PSAT merit, my state was shit broke and can’t afford to invest in education anymore.
Adults need to lie to kids though. It’s part of the “Circle of Life”. Because it’s only when they lie do teenagers learn to question everything and be skeptical about authority. The Germans didn’t question shit in 1928 and 1933 and look what the hell happened. Consider it a valuable lession learned.

PS: It’s great fun to lie to small children. For example: I babysit a little annoying 3 year old prat named Mick. I told him if he bit me one more time, I would take out his batteries. He actually thought he had batteries!! He freaked out and got back in line and hasn’t bit me since. Although he was causing a scene on the Strassenbahn, so I pulled out my house keys and made a twisting motion while mouthing “batteries” and problem solved😛
