I will soon contact you for a finders fee for the above 4 infringements and am willing to name more names. I look forward to working with you.
There is no way to justify spending god knows how many classes reading Greek Mythology just to learn Zeus/Pandora's box references. In that case, Star Wars should be mandatory. There are many more Star Wars references you're going to come across than Greek Mythology.
There is no way to justify learning about mistakes of other countries when you don't even have a voice in your own government. Every school children was taught about the fall of the Roman Empire, yet we still elected a retard who declared war on a country who already surrendered at a cost of trillions. Did you have a voice in that decision? Same thing with any other history subject. No justification for spending years, YEARS, learning ancient history that has no relevance to today. You disagree? Then you should be voting for historians for government offices, since they know all the mistakes of the past.
Do you even remember anything your foreign language classes? I don't. Unless you've been speaking with someone foreign.
And let's remember that a high school graduate is graduating with nothing, NOTHING. No discernible job skills, no trade of any kind, he'll be lucky if he can get a McDonald's job, since what skills is he bringing to even that position? Queen Victoria knowledge? High school is a scam. You're better off getting your GED and spending your time studying for the SAT's if want to get into college. Otherwise, you can be proficient in a trade by the time you're 18 by apprenticing with someone.

Face it, the real reason that Windows 7 is leaner than Vista is that Vista was a market flop because it tried to do all sorts of things that Windows users were simply not ready for.
When I open a browser in XP vs. Vista, what exactly does Vista do that I'm not ready for? If you mean eating up useless chunks of memory, CPU, hard disk cycles with no real benefit, then yes, Windows users are not ready for that. I don't know what exactly your post title is referring to, but the only thing that has come out of someones behind was Vista, and every consumer and business adoption statistic shows this. And this is why Windows 7 is being rushed to Release Candidate status with features still being introduced.
