    Maybe they don't have to complete with Asians for a spot in their selective high schools?

    You're actually legit trolling, surely you know what state ranks are. Literally the first result for hsc state ranks is http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au...achievers.html which is what I was referring to.

    At least learn to spell plebeian. It won't be long before white people become the plebeians of this country if they continue to have this laid-back attitude towards education. In fact many white already can not complete with second generation Chinese in the housing market.

    Plebian is actually an alternate spelling of plebeian, not a spelling mistake.

    No, it's not.

    Name one proper published dictionary that list "plebian" as the alternative spelling of "plebeian". Just one.


    I have just consulted Cambridge, Oxford, Longman and Merriam Webster, none of them list "plebian" anywhere.


    Plebian is the plebeian way of spelling "plebeian", what is why only plebeian dictionaries like free online dictionaries lists "plebian".

    So if you don't want to be a plebeian, then don't use plebeian way of doing things.

    Though not a dictionary, this was my source: http://www.britannica.com/topic/plebeian.

    You are right, it's not a dictionary, it's an Encyclopaedia. Try harder. Maybe use urbandictionary as your reference?

    Re: Testing times: selective schools and tiger parents

    kuromusha what are your thoughts on this post since you seem to have failed to reply:

    What I would say is that kuromusha isn't completely insane. It's well known that migrants place a greater stress on work ethic as a result of a desire to establish their families in a new nation. As such you can probably say that Asian-Australian families, as a hangover from this migrant mentality, tend to transfer to their children better work ethics. This unfortunately seems to come out in the form of after school tutoring from a very early age, but probably does result in better academic outcomes.

    However, the kind of generalisations kuromusha is making make me very wary that he simply believes the 'asian race' is superior to all other races because of some inherent intellectual quality. This belief is obviously not grounded in reality, but kuromusha has done nothing to allay my fears.
    Also why did you say private school kids are mediocre if so many state ranks go to private school kids?

    Nubile is an adjective, not a noun.

    Also, try to keep your tense consistent.

    and all those white people crying to the bank wiping tears off with $100 bills.

    It's a number's game. How many people are there in China? even if 1% were millionaires you'd still have 14.7 million people with over a mil in the bank. Not exactly hard math to figure out why it's easy for them to offload cash in a country with limited locations now innit.

    talking about asian superiority yet wants centrelink xD
