I bought my first real six string. Got it at the five and dime….
Bitcoin in a few months, a six string in the Sumer of ‘69, and college in 40 years… the amount of time matters.
That doesn’t excuse colleges for price gouging but I hate people who think one line come backs are going to fix anything.
@Canis Arktos, one line comebacks fix everything.
@MMSieBreeze, I hate you???
Professor: “Well, of course that’s different. A collage education is the single greatest investment you could make. Now, back to front hole, chest feeding, birthing persons, and the ills of cis patriarchal capitalism, and how eliminating toxic masculinity with hormones and castration will help us achieve a socialist utopia. Make sure you tell you’re neighbor about your preferred pronouns, and remember your diversity training…”
@Cave Dweller, based.
@Cave Dweller, Please stop, we can't handle the truth, it hurts
@Cave Dweller, Was college good and help me learned something's I otherwise wouldn't have?
Did I learn to self organize and manage my work? No.
Started first job after college. No textbook. No rubric. No orders. I was hired for a job and I needed to figure it out, there was no 'solution' to each problem. There was no handbook on how to write an email back as customer service.
I needed to pick myself up quick cause holy sht it wasn't college anymore.
@Tentastic, You’ve learned and adjusted, and are able to see it for what it was, few come out as strong. When “college graduates” appear at work unable to form coherent thought, process information, speak in complete sentences, or worse, babble on about “social justice,” the world should reconsider the value of (current) “higher education,” and parents should consider what damage they are doing to their investment by remaining disinterested. Industry has already begun to think outside the “diploma.” Elon Musk had a few wise things to say about this.
@Cave Dweller, what’s front hole?
@KermitSmash, but not as much as castration.
@RogueKnight, Don't threaten me with a good time ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
@KermitSmash, it's not a threat. It's a promise.
I'm promising you a good ti..... No, wait. Not what I meant!!!!!
@Cave Dweller, i love you
I agree college is expensive and all but what i find even more disgusting is college loans from the government (Stafford loans) are at 6.8% interest rate without any tax credits. Other loans have even higher rates than that. There's nothing you can invest in gives a return like that. It begins collecting interest in some cases before you're even out of college. Now ask yourself why no politicians on either side decrease it... even in an economic recession.
@Dangerous Dan Spivey, the amount of outright lies here is staggering. A typical undergrad loan has an interest rate of 3%, significantly lower than just about anything, including credit cards and car loans. Congress did that so that loans would keep up with inflation and remain budget neutral over time. Loans only accrue interest while in youre in class if you take unsubsidized loans. They won’t accrue if you take subsidized loans.
@Dangerous Dan Spivey, and Congress literally does prohibit interest AND payments from being due in emergencies, seeing as how both have been suspended during covid. Please don’t spread misinformation.
@weneedacrusade, What i said was hardly lies or misinformation... I went to college in the early 2000s and graduate school during the great recession of 2009. Therefore my interest rate is indeed fixed at 6.8%. The interest rate has fluctuated recently but not for me because it depends on the year of loan disbursed. I took both subsidized and unsubsidized because I had to so yes, mine have collected interest since day 1.
Apparently these changes you mention are only in recent years so i was not aware of these recent changes but they also really only affect undergraduate loans as graduate loans change yearly and fluctuates between 4.3-6.8% since 2013. Last year they were 6.08%. Congress made this change for coronavirus but not for the recession in the early 2010s.
Nothing i said was untrue. I will admit that i was wrong that congress hasn't done anything or the current int rate.
You’ll need one of the math phds to calculate the size of that oof
