  1. My time in IB was medium-hard, I'd say. Nothing overwhelming, or even very hard. Just do your **** and you'll do fine.
  2. A one-child policy is insane. Anyone with even the slightest grasp of demographics could see the unfortunate outcome of that. We would have a global society of the elderly. There would be 2 parents for every 1 child, 4 grandparents for every 1 grandchild, 8 great grandparents for every 1 great grandchild. Society as we know it could never take such a demographic plunge, economically or socially (after all, who will feed the people when the median age is 65 and rising?). China, which is still comparatively poor on an international comparison, has had its population aging faster than almost any
  3. I got a 39 in my diploma, so I feel I have the right to speak here. I've had this sentiment A LOT on my school. People think they're so special and awesome. They're not. IB is not really hard, unless you take some Math HL, Chem HL, Psy HL combo, which most DON'T. The grade average at my school was also a pitiful 32, and the world average is something like 29. So it's quite rich for IB kids to be high and mighty.

  5. What would score would you need to attain to secure a slot at University of St. Andrews? I know the requirement is at 38, but it must rise due to competition, right?
  6. No one's ever said that a policy shouldn't be changed, however the One-Child Policy has been in existence since 1978(?), meaning 33 years. That's a good one and a half generation so far, or rather 'long-term' as you call it. By their very essence, family planning programmes are long-term. This isn't like some tax-cut instituted for a couple of years, or a new piece of legislation on speeding-limits. This has to do with human reproduction, and as such it is long-term. As seem by projections, moving too gradually would result in a declining Chinese population and a number of headaches in the
  7. You'd be wrong about the profitability. Due to the advent of 'tubes' and the Internet, few people can be arsed to actually PAY for their porn (seriously, do you? Does anyone?). And if no one pays, then, well, Houston we have a problem. And that's why the porn industry has a hard time right now.
  8. What you say is true, and they are considering to change to a two-child policy, the president recently said that improvements within the family-planning policy are upcoming or similar. But yeah, it would be interesting to know why they chose a one-child policy in the first place. Were they possibly afraid of that the family-planning policies only would be followed partly, and so they wanted a stricter policy to ensure lower fertility rate? It was exactly this. As I mentioned above, a one-child policy doesn't actually result in less-than-one birth per woman ratio in reality. I would hope that
  9. "After Hitler committed suicide in August 1962, the German military could finally initiate Operation Barbarossa and the push for Lebensraum, long opposed by the moderate and concillatory policies of Hitler."
  10. We did... Prussia/Germany (18??-1933), Russia (1854-1924) and Italy (18??-1943) (which I loathed and swore not to do, and did not study for). are you tz1 or 2? I'm guessing TZ2? Europe. well then you were really lucky, there were loads of questions on germany that you could do and one or two on prussia, i did spanish civil war, mussolini and the tsars, therefore there was minimal to do! its all dependent on what topics you do.... Why would your teacher ignore Germany?! That's madness (and no, not Sparta)! It's like... the centerpiece of Europe, both geographically and in the historical pe
  11. Förberedde mig på att analysera en dikt, så jag tog den. Tyckte dock inte särskilt mycket om den. Färgglada berg hit och dit. Men det gick hyfsat ändå, och jag bull****ade rätt bra tyckte jag. Eftersom jag är SL hoppas jag det räcker till en sexa i alla fall.
