Excellent question. However, I'll have to respond to it in time. So, yeah.

I understand that. It means "with a grain of salt" in Latin. You know cum (pronounced 'koom') means "with" right? Sure ya did.

here's one that's been tugging at my bank account: why does college tuition cost so damn much? $47,000 a year! WTF?

This is a sore subject with me, and I'm sure with most people.
You're better off these days becoming an apprentice and learning a trade.
I'm so jealous of the some of the contractors who pretty much said "fuck college." I know so many contractors that do either Paving, Landscape, Concrete, Masonry, just to name a few. Most of them became their own boss, and are raking in a lot of money.
They never have to worry about a student loan hanging over their heads, because they never bothered with it.

Maybe it does make you more well rounded as a person? But what pisses me off the most and makes me feel like I was scammed, is that I have a student loan for 4 years worth of college that I am still trying to pay off. Luckily for me, it's the only debt I have. Like most fields, careers, and jobs, I only needed a semester to a semester and a half worth of courses in order to learn how to do what I do now. And there is no substitute for climbing the ladder of experience, which I felt I could of done anyways.

Re: Ask Jason

You're right, college does feel like a ripoff. I'm on my third year, and don't really feel like I've gained much more from it than debt.

See, I'm going to a "liberal arts" college, so the point is to enlighten you as a person, not train you for a job. Besides, I don't think there are many apprenticeships for biologists...

Guess I'm stuck.

Colleges and universities are part of a multi-billion dollar industry that is in it for the money, just like drug trafficking and prostitution. There's money to be made in the field by those at the top of it (boards of directors, academic deans), those who attempt to pay for it(federal and private grants, scholarships, student loan organizations), and those who attend it(or so that hope is instilled in them).

I don't fancy paying so much money for an education I can get for free at nearby libraries. And I don't have the focus to stick with one subject.

Technically, you ended that post in a question.

I care about my opinion. And you're not the queen of whoreticulturalists. A lot of people are whoreticulturalists. I'm a whoreticulturalist myself.

I'm not saying this applies to you, but if people need to be enlightened by colleges and universities and not what's already around them (think urban sprawl versus the transcendental beauty of nature, among many other things) then they don't need to be thinking at all, which they probably aren't.

Re: Ask Jason

More questions you fools.

And I haven't forgotten yours Tyne. To be honest, I've had to think about who I want to include in your answer. Who are the AS girls? How can I compare what little I know of these people to Greek Goddesses?

Oh, and Tyne, I already know who you are. =P

Haha, definitely not. I completely agree, but it seems, especially in the science fields, that this form of enlightenment doesn't render a paycheck. Trust me, if I could make a living adoring the wonders of nature, I definitely would tell my college to go to hell.

Re: Ask Jason

Okay my dear, I have a question for you.
A few weeks ago, Pete and I were having a debate. We watch movies strategically grouped together. EI: Pulp Fiction, Fight Club and Sin City all fit very well together, in that order.
Our dilemma comes from A Scanner Darkly. Pete has argued that it better fits with Waking Life, which is already coupled with The Yellow Submarine because the animation style closely parallels Waking Life's. I say it belongs with Spun and Chumscrubber because of the heavy drug usage and closely related storyline. So I believe my argument weighs heavily on the future of movie nights.
What is the answer, Jason?

What makes you think I don't already know the answer? I know what the Ikanji Box Jellyfish (or something like that) is. It's one of the most venomous creatures on the Earth and can be found along Australia's coast, watch out stonic!!

If I'm not mistaken, their eyes are varying degrees of light-sensitive. And they use that to find prey that would be smaller than them, small enough to fit inside their bell for digestion.

You should watch some National Geographic with me sometime, Cas.

Re: Ask Jason

yes...the irukandji :) also..not just prevalent in australia, but has been found off of our coast (SC)...and as far up as the coast of great britain. it has been said it can thrive in even the harshest of oceans. is excruciatingly painful, but pales in comparison to the most common/and potent box jellyfish Chironex fleckeri, accounting for many many deaths..the most poisonous animal on the planet. the jelly can see things bigger or smaller, but no one knows HOW it processes the information without a brain. :) it was a trick question. and yes i love national geographic. i have many many many magazines, and sets of dvds.
