Praise the prof and pass the bong

Puppy Blender link about the higher ed bubble.
I'm not discussing if there is a higher ed bubble*, I'm just talking about this the pic at the link.
Written on the pic is:
"Four years for a BS with honors
6 years for a Ph.D
Now, I work 70 hours a week for $30K
It just wasn't worth it. I want my 20s back"

If you're working 70 hours for $30k I'm gonna guess neither your BS nor your master's nor your Ph.D required any math and since you don't say J.D, you're not being abused by a law firm.

But that's not the point.

The point is the "I want my 20s back."

You partied your ass off for your 20s on your parent's dime and loans.

You didn't want to go out into the "real world" so you kept going for your Ph.D in 12th century French poetry or Linguistics of the Patriarchy and now have to work your butt off teaching English at a community college or something.

In other words, you partied your ass off and got some useless degrees and now you're mad?
Color me totally uncaring.

*I would suggest there is one for high-dollar schools.
I went to state schools when I went back so my student loan payments are around $130/month.
And that only because I didn't feel like working full time+ the last  two years, I had no loans for the first two years, no sleep, but no loans.
I tutored for pocket money and let loans pay my $350/month rent and pot of stew every week for the last two years in Fucking Utica.

The company you keep says a lot about you

It seems that The Twat has a rather, um, "interesting" buddy writing over at TwatForum...

The sexual exploitation of children is an almost unimaginable horror, abetted by the insidious online movement to paint pedophilia as just another puritan taboo. It should be just as unimaginable that a prominent public intellectual would allow this evil to fester in the conservative movement, but that is precisely what former Bush administration speechwriter David Frum does each time he renews his support of former NewsReal Blog contributor Alex Knepper.

Knepper’s disgusting views on sex have been thoroughly documented in posts we have written here at NewsReal Blog. We have contacted Frum three times to present evidence of Knepper’s degeneracy. In response, he snidely brushed off our documentation, instead focusing his protege’s energy on how to “fight the crazy right.” Never has Frum condemned any of this previously-disclosed material.

The whole thing has to be read to be believed, but I'm going to warn you right now—there is some *EXTREMELY DISTURBING AND NSFW CONTENT* at the link.

I know that nobody here was buying the crap that The Twat was selling, but he needs to be shunned from polite company until he turns his back on this sick fucking creep.

I am very seldomly required to wear a suit and tie...

...but on those occasions, I try to do my sartorial best. This includes wearing suits that are somewhat slimming for my frame (the cut and color/pattern can do wonders for your own lying eyes), crisp dress shirts, and choosing a tie that has a classic pattern that is free of hate symbols.

I would imagine (I hope so, anyway) that he just didn't notice.

Fun Fact: In the fifth grade, I actually sat next to his niece. Nice girl, and pretty, too. And she never expressed any hostility to any ethnic or religious group that I can remember.
