All possible permutations
  • Jokes necessarily often leave behind details to work.

    Here the whole joke is pointing out similarities we see are forced.

    And besides, it's obvious the author was intentionally being "wrong", otherwise we'd be suggesting the author assumed the thought-experiment was monkeys who knew language, intentionally typing out great works. That's a pretty useless situation to make up, it doesn't suggest anything interesting.

    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)

    Wholesome co-worker
  • 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.
