The epitome of cruel and unusual torture, inflicted on young people between the ages of fifteen and eighteen, in which all moral and ethical codes are violated. This program, known formally as the International Baccalaureate, is designed to make these teenagers suffer as much as they can over the span of two years. The more miserable the students are, the more bonus points the IB gurus gain, and the more money is incremented int heir salaries. The instructors are cruel, uninterested in the well-being of the students; the coordinators are merciless in the strive to boost the GPA's of the students as high as they can go; the students themselves are nervous wrecks. Time is not the friend of these poor children, as they are not allowed any spare minutes to do normal activities other teenagers their ages do (i.e. going to the movies, parties, drinking, or attending other social events). They are shielded from the world in their little bubble of TOK, Chemistry, Biology, Photo, Psychology, American History, English, Spanish, French,German, Calculus, Physics, and MLA/APA in-text and extra textual citations. They have a notorious reputation to take illicit drugs in order to maintain concentration and memory. (otherwise known as potheads.) They also have a glorious reputation of being cheaters and liers. IB is in its simplest form a very accurate representation of Hell on Earth. It deprives its students of sleep, food, fun, rest, relaxation, and most of all, happiness and sanity. If an individual is able to complete the rigorous courses and receive their diploma, conserve their sanity, stay alive to receive said diploma, or abstain from committing murder or personal physical mutations, they shall be dubbed The Honorable One by the IB gods in Cardiff, Whales.
You know you're IB
when you can't restrain yourself from relating international economics and politics to a simple conversation about cartoons.
Sleep and happiness: about the only words not part of the vocabulary of an IB

A program created in an attempt to control the minds of the youths of the future, implemented by Swiss lawn gnomes
, by preventing their exposure to the outside world.
The state goals of the program are to provide students with an education rounded out accross five program areas ("groups") - including Language 1, Language 2, Social Sciences, Science, Math, and Art/Option. Additional elements of the program include CAS (a system used to force students out of the house once in a while), ToK (philosophy) and Extended Essay.
In an attempt to shove too much information down the throats of students, the program ends up significantly improving the core skill required to succeed in IB: Bullshit. The phrase I.B. therefore I B.S.
comes from this.
IB teaches students to turn shit into gold.
The International Baccalaureate Program is an organization dedicated to the predation of young minds through manipulation and psycological brainwashing. It corrupts students into believing that they are part of a priviledged and elite society of more intelligent beings and raises its own prestige by forcing students to commit to nineteen hour work days, thereby causing parents to believe that the massive and unreasonable amount of travail must equate with a higher education. This in turn deters the ordinarily rational parents from protesting when asked to pay absurd amounts of money for exams that their children grow to despise. It is not until their fourth year in this fraudulent program that the participants realize that this course has no effect on the colleges to which they intend to apply. By this time, the student has already dedicated thousands of hours to this corporation (doubt not that it is indeed a corporation) and human nature insists that they complete the program.
Its long, unpronounceable and un-spellable name only adds to its supposed prominence.
In short, this institution is designed to swindle valuable money and time away from its members by exploiting competitive young adults.
an essential part of surviving IB is knowing the intimidating effect of a thesaurus
International Baccalaureate Program, a high school program for exceptionally gifted students, designed to transform once intelligent creative students into conformists of an international curriculum. This program is known for causing ridiculously high stress levels, mutual hatred and competition amongst it's students, repeated mental breakdowns, bloodshed, lack of a social life, and the mastery of bullshitting your way through things.
IB students are typically extremely masochistic and rarely sleep. It is also known to have made students who once felt quite smart to feel quite stupid, thus greatly lowering their self-esteems.
Another name for IB is hell.
Non-IB student: Hey you want to go hang out tonight?
IB student: Sorry, I can't. I have a chemistry formal report due tomorrow, I have to read about 100 pages for biology, read an entire Shakespeare play, write a research paper about Stalin, do an entire chapter of calculus, and volunteer for 8 hours too.
Non-IB student: Damn.
International Baccalaureate, an enriched High School program that's so special that it's the same all over the world so if you plan to do highschool in several different countries a year it's easy to adjust. It's special because you have no choice in what classes you take so the schools don't have to worry about finding teachers for electives, you have to do 120 hours of community service and the PROGRAM OWNS YOUR SOUL. To top it off, in addition to the super stressful courses you get to hand in an essay at the end of the year that's the culmination of four years of research and blood and sweat and if you don't do well on it YOU FAIL AND YOUR LIFE WILL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING BECAUSE YOU CAN'T DO HIGHSCHOOL AGAIN SINCE THEY SUCKED OUT YOUR SOUL.
