Re: "I Love College"
If I were to interview you for a job not knowing anything about you beforehand, I would not hire you.
The way you talk and the way you write, I wouldn't hire you even if you had all the right qualifications. You're clearly not mentally elastic enough to be able to think on your feet. You'd constantly be bugging me asking about this or that. You'd be a liability. You're very unsure of yourself and your late start in life means that you probably fucked about for several years. Meaning you didn't do anything of worth in that time and think that this computer job you're looking for is just another stepping stone in your bag of bad ideas.

in employment ads.
As far as the sanitation route goes, I agree with everyone. Decent wages, benefits, job security. However, if I get a degree would that not be a better option?
Sanitation workers aren't mentally handicapped or stupider than people with degrees, by the way. A degree doesn't reflect intelligence, only a certain amount of cultural capital and the patience to sit in a series of rooms, listening to conversations and watching slide shows, for four years.
Any tests I have ever applied myself on throughout school and life I breezed through.

Maybe, maybe not. If your only interest in a degree is a Good Job, and as you have, apparently, no real interest in studying anything, you may as well just get a sanitation job. College will leave you overqualified for many good jobs like that, and perhaps even in significant debt. If you don't have a passion for something, you're just going to be another asshole with a degree. The US has a glut of those already, and we're running out of Starbucks stores to employ them all.

Grade inflation is endemic in American school systems.

Trust me their are some dumb ass mother fuckers in school. Yes they will graduate and have that degree it is far from a symbol of intelligence and most people know this.
This is the **** they have had to do because of grade inflation and to make sure people pass courses. I don't trust the academic system at all anymore.

When you try to classify it like catching pokemon these two still end up with the same diploma, maybe with honors or something, but the letters on the A4 card stock don't really speak for the in between.http://woodwardswhiskey.wordpress.com/
He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.

Yes, you've been doing it for years. It is hilarious in this particular thread.
