  1. I agree that not everyone should be herded into traditional 4-year programs and I do think having a deep pool of jobs that have no degree-requirements is a good thing. however, I think that pool is shrinking...as at least from an optics perspective, companies/industries think it's important to have a college/post-grad educated work-force, even if it's really not necessary. a large contributor to the student loan debt crisis has been over-education requirements for entry/low-level positions without adequate compensation. teaching for example. many school districts are now requiring all teachers have or be actively pursuing a Masters degree for employment...so while already the increased cost of a four-year early education degree has far outpaced a rise in wages for a 2nd grade teacher, now too many need to add 2-3 years more worth of loans in order to be considered for a $40k/year job.
  2. going to float out the idea that we're concerned about the wrong paragraph here. the first paragraph is the more alarming and cause for further thought.
  3. nothing communicates strong and confident masculinity quite like homophobia.
  4. as the only poster who could give 5 solid minutes of game time, I already took my name out of the hat.
  5. and he critiques hair style and fashion. wow. what a modern man. you're lovely. what Taylor Swift tracks really make you well up with emotion? for me it's the 10 minute re-issue of All Too Well. I mean, really...c'mon Jake...just give her back her scarf already, right?
  6. honestly, the most astounding take-away from this entire thread was @MeanGreenPatriot’s proper use of modern pronouns in the title. dude. kudos to you and personal growth and sensitivity
  7. here's my favorite line: "Dallas/Fort Worth chapter of antifa" like, they called up HQ? rang Antifa PR department for statement?
  8. gosh...I don't know...I can't taste anything through this government mandate mask. there is actual tyranny in the world. it's not here. and certainly not for middle class+ white men.
  9. so...you'd have been pro-lockdowns? had literally no one gone anywhere for a month COVID would've died by April'2020. mask mandates were the step taken to prevent whole-scale lockdowns. I agree with you that most masks worn over the last two years fall well short of the protection offered by N95s...but to get those to 330 million and convince proper usage would've taken leadership and buy-in and messaging and personal responsibility that we just don't have as a country/human race.
  10. I just pulled up the notes on that and I'm fascinated. it's a distillate of honey, figs and sugar...so more in the vain of a rum/cachaca/cognac hybrid. would be keen to try that some time
  11. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/10/podcasts/the-daily/new-york-mask-mandates.html this was a good listen and kinda sums up my thoughts on where we're at with all pandemic requirements/precautions. basically some (mostly on the left) will continue to be overly-cautions despite science telling them that their already cautious behavior (three vax shots) makes them very low-risk, and feel more comfortable with mandates in place making others overly-cautious by rule. others (mostly on the right) will take this as some sort of redeeming victory for unsafe, selfish behavior from go when it's really just the natural progression of the pandemic (a stopped clock being right twice a day)
