I'm a senior engineer... And I have one non-engineering class left. Texas government.

I'm about to go in now. There are a bunch of freshmen waiting here with me. Their eyes are vacant and they look unhealthy. Too much red bull prolly.

The long story short is that this class is a blow off even for fish. Between my seniority and presence at websites like DDO, I consider this a massive indignity. I'd rather spend an hour staring at a blank wall, because that way I wouldn't have to risk catching retarded-zombie-disease from a Statist licensed and paid by the State talk about how good the State is.

Thoughts? Similar experiences? Consolations?

I actually had brown rice and chicken just now. But I brought it from home and it wasn't fried.

Sad...

Is this class required?

Just sit down, grind your teeth, take somewhere reasonably secluded takes notes and attempt to bear it. Usually works for my religion class, except that I sleep through that as it lacks an exam.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Find out what the attendance policy is.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Yeah. All texans gotta take texas government. I'm torn between ripping the professor a new one every day, or just using my laptop during class. Pornography isn't blocked at school.

Well I don't know anything about texas goverment. So I'm going to have to go to some lectures. Maybe I'll tell the prof I have medical problems and I have to go out of town for treatment (which could be true in a couple of weeks), and see if he can explain to me the bare minimum to get through his class.

The previous professor is still in the room. She was teaching english or something. She was flirting with the cross country kids. She's a little on the heavy side. She dyes her hair and wears big earrings.

tl;dr Sieben hates everyone.

Sounds like high school. Remember how you got through high school classes? Just do that again.
Should we subsidize education?

She sounds kinda cool :o)

Maybe you could pull a John Nash and just not go to class unless something is due. "Classes will dull your mind, memorizing the weaker assumptions of lesser mortals reduces the capacity for authentic creativity."

LoL

I would suggest bringing your laptop to class, and then using the internet the whole time or writing papers/doing homework for your other classes during that one. If there are tests, you'll actually have to pay attention once in awhile, but if there are just a bunch of papers, then you only need to show face but can easily write the papers even if you don't pay attention. Last semester I wrote a sh!t ton of Vi's papers for her for a class I'd never gone to. Easyyy. It's not like you won't be able to look up any of the stuff online as Askbob pointed out.

One of my first required classes (forget the subject) had a scholarship football player in it. He was complaining to everyone that people couldn't even speak American at this school. It was the beginning of my resentment. So many other stories about the scholarship athletes.

What would you do if you were forced to take a freshmen level class?

Well, we don't have homework or quizzes. Just exams. Multiple choice. The dude is super old, and super boring. He just paces back and forth mumbling for the whole lecture about how spain used to own Texas and there were some scuffles with France and Mexico or something... I'm just going to pirate the textbook and skip all his classes.

You need it to graduate, right?

There's people in foxholes right now under withering enemy fire and you're complaining about taking a freshman class. Put it back in to perspective and you'll see it's a tiny road bump in the grand scheme of your life.

Take the class and ace it.

There's people in foxholes right now weathering enemy fire, and you're complaining about someone complaining about having their time wasted. Put it back into perspective and you'll realize that every hour can be used for productive activity.

Take the class and ace it.
Thanks dad!
