Hour long video, obviously I don't expect you all to watch it. I've been listening to it in small pieces over the course of the day. Basically it just goes over how higher education is a ginormous scam.

Keep points being:

- Books that "expire" every year and can't be resold.
- Massive student loans (apparently they now eclipse credit card debt for the country)
- Brain washing from a young age the idea that you will fail in life if you don't go to college.

Thoughts?

there are inefficient and ineffective aspects but it's not a scam as a whole

the problem is that there are multitudes fucking english and liberal arts majors graduating while math, science and engineering are rapidly falling


some of the points you mentioned are very real, though. skilled labor is also disappearing yet people look down on that as if somehow a wymen's history major is a greater contribution to society than a plumber

The question is why? The same thing is happening here. Maybe it's because we are increasing the proportion of people staying in education so the easier subjects are accounting for a higher percentage of students. Either that or younger people aren't seeing an attraction towards those sort of careers.

Because math sucks. Make math less about numbers and it will become more popular.

Whatever they gotta do. Also make engineering less about measurements of quantities and forces and more about measurements of girls. Boom, instead popularity.

I believe it. I feel scammed after going through school. I've bitched and bitched about this on here in the past. :lol:

I've been thinking about law school a lot lately, and I'm not looking forward to that bill.

Blah, towards the end of the video they start ranting (at length) about how buying silver is the only way to survey the coming apocalypse.

First off, I have guns for that.

Second, I wanted to hear about how college graduates are idiots, not that an ear of corn will cost a billion dollars in.......DUN DUN DUN....2012!

Yeah, the fact they felt it necessary to use the "NIA" name in every reference was a bit annoying.

And if you ain't rollin' a Lambo sittin' on twankies times 6 you ain't ballin', son.

Student loans are crazy like that tho, well not Gallardo status, but I have probably five grand in my savings from the leftover from the financial payments. I put it in a high interest savings to try and combat the cost, hahahah isn't that funny.
