Today’s topic: Strange situations
What would you do if you were in a strange situation?
What do people do when they are uncertain?
Usually people look to others when they are uncertain. They do what other people are doing. Researchers created a room for people to fill out forms. The room would slowly fill up with smoke. Researchers watch how the participants would react to the smoke.
This is what they found:
When the participants were alone in the room, they would immediately leave when they saw the smoke. When there were other people in the room, they wound not react to the smoke. Even when it completely filled the room.
Don’t always rely on others, think for yourself!
We often see characters in movies blowing cars up by throwing a lit match or firing a bullet at the gas tank. If cars exploded so easily, wouldn’t we have a stricter policy on cigarettes at gas stations? With all the careless smokers on earth, everyone would have to be strip-searched for matches and lighters prior to approaching the gas pump the way airports scan us before we reach the gate.

The only purpose of school is to learn knowledge. This I thought was true. School is important, but not just for the reasons you think. A major purpose of school is to help you grow into a rounded person who can handle any task given and works well with others.
