Heres to the posters who feel like they need to apologize for imperfect English: lady-of-greenwood pomme-poire-peche getinmyglitterpants languages-georg So I used to have a Russian friend who had a pretty thick accent and like a lot of Russians tended to eschew articles. She would say things like "Get in car." And stuff Well one day this asshole who had been kind of tagging along with us asks her why she talks like that because it makes her sound dumb and I still remember her response word for word "Me? Dumb? Maybe in America you have to say get in THE car because you are so stupid that people might just get in random car, but in Russia we don't need to say that. We just fucking know because we are not stupid." One time I was proof reading a paper for a Russian student. As I was correcting her paper with her, the many mistakes in her grammar started weighing on her. I asked her what was wrong, and she said almost sobbing In Russian I am so intelligent and clear. In English I am like [an] idiot" Respect to anyone trying to master a foreign language. I get so sad thinking about that student. Do you know how frustrating it is To have people laugh in my face because I'm struggling to find the words? n m You should try talking in my shoes fori one mile. think you meant know whatl meant to mean. Do you know howsmart Iam in Spanish of course you dont. Full offense but people who make fun of someone else's accent or belittle their limited vocabulary when they're speaking a language not native to them are fucking disgusting and are just begging to be punched They're speaking your language because you don't know theirs. That's not something they should be made fun of, it's something that should be commended because learning a language is hard fucking work. I hate people who do this so much Heres to the posters who feel like they need to apologize for imperfect English

The problem with these free market types that claim “all you need are useful skills” is: You can’t predict with 100% accuracy what skill the market will need in the future (it’s a fucking chaotic free market so . that’s basically what it means). So even if you can calculate that nursing degrees for example have a higher ROI than sociology degrees today, in theory- If too many people get into nursing it’ll actually decrease the ROI of a nursing degree since there is now an oversupply of nursing graduates entering the job market. Also if the millions and millions of students in the humanities did a trade instead, I am more than confident trade jobs will end up paying less, once again, because there will be an oversupply of trade specialists. Same if everyone went into engineering. You get the picture. Using their own logic, (supply and demand dictating wages and the need to be useful via skills) the system can only allow certain people to make high wages. Only a finite amount can make high wages and if too many people flood any one profession, their wages go down. Notice how he says “trades are in such high demand” this means that there is a (temporary) shortage of tradespeople, which means if you enter X trade your wage will be high. But once again, when the demand goes down (if supply gets too high via too many people pursuing that field) than wages will go down as well. So …. what do we do then when their wages are down? You blame those same kids you told to join trades. The poor ALWAYS get the blame because you can easily blame a poor person after the fact by analyzing their choices of the past and comparing it to the current market and other standards of the present, hindsight bias really is a gem. I even see poor people do it to themselves as an explanatory theory as to their current economic condition. Another thing to note is that S.T.E.M. isn’t some magic ticket into being rich or making money even now. I know many biology majors working at Starbucks. I know some chemistry majors who can only do lab grunt work that doesn’t allow them to pay all their bills. So not only can you not blame them for not going into S.T.E.M, you must now blame them for going into the WRONG S.T.E.M. field.  Also, and this is funny, if eventually no one goes into the humanities- eventually there will be a shortage of English professors (as an example) and English teachers and then it would be the humanities students saying “wow stupid S.T.E.M. kids get a real job” because the humanities people will be paid more since there would be a desperate need for them.  Also imagine if everyone who couldn’t afford college joined the military ….. great fucking advice lol: Ed Latimore @EdLatimore Fuck these lazy kids complaining about the cost of their sociology degrees while working as baristas. Trades are in such high demand that they pay you to learn. The military will pay you to learn as well.
