"Banning the expression of hatred far outweighs the negative effects of 'thoughtcrime'." -royalpaladin

"Ah..I remember it like it was Yesterday. It was spring break and all the kids were wild and free, embracing their youthful ways. Everyone was sneaking off here and there, at the beach and homes, raping one another. I'd even heard of a few instances of whole groups of them getting together at rape parties and brutally raping each other raw. Raping drugs were as plentiful as acne.

It's name was Mufasa and it was a donkey. I could tell it was nervous at first. It, too, had never raped before. But I helped to set the mood with some rape candles and heavy metal.

That night has forever seared itself into my brain as 9 inches of pure unadulterated terror. And I will never forget it. I've had a lot of rapes since then but there's nothing that quite compares to the first." -FREEDO

"Dan4reason good to meet you...
I must assume you are a JEW!!" -Dogknox

"If you got nothing to hide, just go ahead and let the TSA grab your genitals, stick their hand in your rectum, you have no explosives in there right? Nothing to hide." -GeoLaureate8
"Holy sh1t grab your things we are going to the airport! Seconds please!" -R0b1Billion

Wishing4Winter: Well this is a thoroughly awkward conversation.
Koopin: Welcome to DDO. How big is your ding dong?
johnnyboy54: That user is a woman Koopin.
Koopin: Doesn't matter sometimes.

Smart:

Made the list. And yes what I say is true. Some of the most inept, dumb azz people I have ever had the displeasure of meeting have had so called college degrees. That is also not to say that I have had the pleasure of meeting brilliant people who have degrees. The same goes for people who didn't go to college. Going through the motions doesn't mean you learned anything. It means you gamed the education system to get a degree without learning anything that would be useful in the real world.

Getting anything less than an A in college is a waste of everyone's time. College is for the academic elite not Joe jerk off who wants to party and meet chicks and eek by with sub par grades.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I can't stop laughing at this. It's one of those things where I laugh, think I'm fine, and then a few hours later start laughing again. This quote has made a deep impact on my life.

See, that's the thing though; being educated is not synonymous with being smart. Being educated simply means that you have gone to school.

"Being educated simply means that you have gone to school."

Then we need to change the definition of being educated.

Because educated "implies" intellegence, commonsense and understanding. So if one is going to claim to be "educated", I as another individual should not have to waste my time with people who claim to have been "educated" but are as incompetent and useless as a bag of hammers with broken handles when it comes to the most basic aspects of reading, writing, math and common sense.

No it doesn't. It implies that you've gone to school and passed.

Ok. Let's say you've redefined "educated." What's to stop those people from still claiming to be educated and forcing you to waste your time?

That's easy, you have to pass a difficult test covering a vast array of subjects both physical and academic including your major. That's right, being able to manipulate objects is part of being educated. Very few people should have what it takes to get a college degree worth touting. If you don't have this near impossible document to get, then I have no problems with time wasting as it is implied that you are only partialy educated. Kinda funny that a guy with a GED would think this isn't it. But don't walk in all full of yourself and your degree and not even have a basic understanding of well, nothing.

So give a degree to any joe jerk off that can get through by manipulation or dishonestly. Got it, great standards.

I never for once implied being superior. Those are your words. I as a person with no degree should not be able to compete with someone who has one. The fact that I can is an indictment of higher education and it's lowering of standards to such a level that it now teaches remedial reading, writing and math. Insulting me personally only shows a lack of anything worthy of discussion on the subject. I have met many people with degrees that were no better than the average person with a high school diploma. It is full hardy in my opinion to discriminate in interviewing people with no degree vs someone with. The only two professions that I can think of that would require a prerequisit of college is the legal profession and the medical doctor profession. All the rest, not so much.

Employers should have their own tests, to see if the people they plan to interview even have a clue about what it is they are supposedly going to be asked to do. I think employers would be astounded at the level of knowledge they are just throwing out the door by discriminating solely on the premise that a person did not go to college.

I think employers would be astounded at the level of knowledge they are just throwing out the door by discriminating solely on the premise that a person did not go to college.

So, what criteria do you think employers should use to weed through the hundreds, maybe even thousands, of resumes they receive as an application? Or do you think they should just give this test to all of these applicants? Or, how about this, we have a state regulated test, so that employers don't have to do it. Then we can have schools that teach people to pass these state regulated tests, so that employers know who to hire. Oh wait, that's college.......

I don't see how your suggestion is immune to that.

Actually you did. What else is "Kinda funny that a guy with a GED would think this isn't it" supposed to imply?

I as a person with no degree should not be able to compete with someone who has one. The fact that I can is an indictment of higher education and it's lowering of standards to such a level that it now teaches remedial reading, writing and math.

That certainly depends on the degree and the competition.

Insulting me personally only shows a lack of anything worthy of discussion on the subject.

You insulted yourself. Otherwise, why should anyone be surprised at your ideas?

It is full hardy in my opinion to discriminate in interviewing people with no degree vs someone with. The only two professions that I can think of that would require a prerequisit of college is the legal profession and the medical doctor profession. All the rest, not so much.

Employers should have their own tests, to see if the people they plan to interview even have a clue about what it is they are supposedly going to be asked to do. I think employers would be astounded at the level of knowledge they are just throwing out the door by discriminating solely on the premise that a person did not go to college.

And I don't think they care about those diamonds in the rough. Any given employer probably gets more resumes than it can reasonably attend to, hence the need to narrow down. Yes, they are shutting the door people who are probably more experienced and capable, but that isn't because they believe those people don't exist, rather they don't think it is cost effective to wade through the amount of less-than-qualified candidates to find them.

So they narrow the playing field with a set of arbitrarily defined qualifications. Set aside education and let's look at experience. There are people with less years of on-hand experience that are more capable than people with more years of on-hand experience. Does that mean having a qualification related to years experience is fool hardy? No. It's about hedging your bets. With the overlapping requirements (experience, education, etc.) combined with a face-to-face interview, they are increasing the odds of getting someone good as compared with the cost to find them.

Then again, we're all just fooling ourselves. It's about who you know, not what you know.

In the context of this discussion this is just as relevant. College helps with networking.
