    You are just wrong on so many levels in my personal experience. I went to a feeder prep school for a top independent school in Sussex and I hate having to say this so bluntly, I really do, but pretty much every single person in my classes bar Quamquam123 was not as intelligent as me. I'm not boasting, it's just a fact. My learning was actually compromised in my last couple of years there because in your average lesson we would still be doing stuff that I had understood two lessons previously but most others hadn't got yet. I am getting a far better education at my state grammar school than I would have done had I continued to go private( not that I had that option anyway, the inheritance from a rich ancestor that funded me going to private school ran out when I was 13).
    I can second what cranbrook is saying here - he is a very intelligent individual. I would agree with you here that sometimes the pace was a bit slow but I just have a feeling this was similar for many other schools.

    If I had Firefox, I'd do the same.

    I'm not so sure. Have you met some of the people in UKIP?

    Meh, I'd say I'm of fairly average intelligence; I'd say the same for a couple of other members, but I won't name names.

    You don't know about a superiority complex until you play monopoly with me.

    Wait so it's bad for people to mix with their own class ?
    Yup, integrating multiple classes into a classroom would be far better for the students, probably lessen the resentment between the rich and poor as they age.

    You think you're narcissistic? You're like a slice of humble pie compared to the vanity project that is myself.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt

    I wrote a 5000 word article on why it wasn't my fault my hypothetical government collapsed in a Model Parliament.
