I took a physics class in my last year of high school simply because i didn't want a free period and i thought it would be interesting.

Might have been my teacher, but while it certainly wasn't fun, it was easy as hell.

He also gave us all the formulas from that chapter on the test so we just had to identify what formula to use, then plug the numbers in and solve.

This is only really relevant with the last panel.
As a guy who has forsaken college, gotten a full time job at a state park as an interpreter (decent pay, benefits, even lodging inside the park), I wish everybody (especially everybody in the US) who decides to put up with college and all of the ******** that goes along with it the best of luck paying back all of your debt.

It took me three years of volunteer work, that I was just doing because it was fun, to be offered a job out there. I don't have a biology or history degree (it's a historical state park and we have to interpret the wildlife, the history, all of that good stuff) but since I have a good degree of knowledge in that specific area they didn't really care.

TL;DR- I'm 19, I dropped out of college, and I have a full-time job with the state doing what I love.

It's good you're doing what you love.

What I love is an average starting salary of $80,000 a year and 100% employment after one year of graduation.
#36 to #14 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
I had no idea there were jobs with 100% employment O.o

Makes engineering seem kind of stupid, now...
#97 to #8 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
Not everybody goes into debt for college. I just worked hard in highschool to get a couple of big scholarships and chose to stay at home with my parents rather than waste money on an overpriced dorm.
#98 to #97 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
And I'm actually earning money as I can pocket extra scholarship money.
#10 to #8 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
Good luck getting another job if you ever happen to lose that one.
#33 to #10 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
Someone with experience working a year or more with one company has a way better shot at getting or keeping a job than someone with a few years of college. He will not have troubles if he is a good worker, trust me, unlike a lot of the ass-hats I get applying who have just graduated.

As a math student with teachers that never use a book, it's "Start with the claim and definitions, fail to see how your definitions get you a start on your proof, have a drink and cry, thumbing ferociously through your notes, cussing at your professor for giving you **** to work with. Nevertheless, you press forward, making connections and worrying that your claims of "triviality" and "axiomatic" aren't really so. You finish, and want to check your work. Knowing that your professor wouldn't assign open problems, you search the web for a proof. You search, and cry, and search, and drink, and search, and an hour before class you find one paper with the proof in the darkest alleys of the internet that was published in a smaller math journal in 1968. The proof is much different than your own, using methods you didn't think of. Since you have been reduced to tears and alcohol by this point, and your work is all typed up in LaTeX and you've no time to change it, you slowly stumble your way to class, assuring yourself "No, your proof totally works. There are probably a dozen different proofs; I mean, that paper was published 40 years ago. Mine is fine. Mine is fine." **** .

Seriously? Found on Imgur? This is SMBC, and the creator, Zach Wienersmith (a 			*******		 genius) deserves the credit, asshole. It's literally less than a week old. Do a Tineye search or something.

How about you settle the **** down?
I seriously doubt the author's going to be like "WOW THIS ******* ONE GUY DIDNT RECOGNIZE MY ART STYLE AND HE DIDNT GIVE ME CREDIT FOR IT AND IM PISSED BECAUSE CREDIT IS SUPER VALUABLE EVEN THOUGH IT'S JUST A SENTIMENT THAT HAS NO PHYSICAL FORM OR VALUE WHATSOEVER OTHER THAN MAKING ME FEEL GOOD"

This guy's comics are posted everywhere. I can't imagine he'd lose his **** over one guy not recognizing one. He wouldn't see this post anyways.
User avatar #90 to #88 - snaresinger (06/22/2013) [-]
That's not my point at all. How 'bout you not assume.
User avatar #91 to #90 - nightmaren (06/22/2013) [-]
You got pissed at him for not giving credit. If that's not your point, I don't know what is.
User avatar #93 to #91 - snaresinger (06/22/2013) [-]
My point is, you're wrong. Credit IS valuable. It's advertising. It's the only way artists can get new views, interest and traffic. Come on, use your common sense.

My other point is that I don't like the fact that you assumed what my point is, or that I was pissed. For example, you used caps in your satire of me even though I didn't use them. Nobody was yelling. I was rather calm. Sometimes, your opinion is not needed.
User avatar #94 to #93 - nightmaren (06/22/2013) [-]
I'd say the majority of people on this site recognize SMBC. If OP didn't recognize him because he found the comic somewhere else (This comic doesn't really look like other SMBC comics, so even if he did know who SMBC was, I don't blame him for not knowing this comic was his.
You called OP an asshole for failing to jump through some hoops to be able to give credit to the author. I don't think anybody should have to do some private investigator **** just to be allowed to post a comic on the internet without being antagonized.

On top of that, if credit was given, how many people on FJ do you think would actually go to his site and read more comics there? My guess would be not a lot. One of the main reasons people go on FJ is because the best **** from every site usually ends up here. The best SMBC comics will show up here, the best 4chan posts will show up here, and so on.
If someone goes out of their way to remove an author's watermark, that's a huge dick move, because an author obviously needs all the credit they can get, I just don't think anybody's obligated to go out of their way to find the author, if they found it without the watermark to begin with. If they do, that's great. If they don't, they're definitely not an asshole.
User avatar #100 to #94 - snaresinger (06/22/2013) [-]
Being a university student, I absolutely disagree that nobody's obligated to give credit. If you took that attitude of "I don't think people should have to inconvenience themselves for the sake of citation" at a university, you'd be kicked out without a moment's hesitation.

Being an artist, I just happen to think that attitude makes him an asshole.

Furthermore, it's BECAUSE FJ is a watering hole of the internet that it needs to be cited. Some of my favorite sites (SMBC, C&H, Cracked) were shown to me on this website, and now I give them consistent traffic, because samples of them were brought to me through this site. As a matter of fact, I'm sure you've heard the common complaint that 4chan has become watered down because of too much traffic from other sites. If OP's actually gave credit more often, then people WOULD go to other sites to check them out and possibly become regulars.

If most people on here recognized SMBC, then why did OP not know it? Furthermore, if credit isn't so important, and people don't go to other sites to check them out, then why is peoples' recognition of it relevant anyways? Stick to the topic.

And lastly, searching on Tineye isn't "jumping through hoops." It's a few mouse clicks. That's why I suggested it- it's easy.
User avatar #102 to #100 - nightmaren (06/22/2013) [-]
Giving credit for essays and **** is different than giving credit for a joke comic. I don't see how bringing up the complaint about 4chan being watered down helps your argument in particular, and I specified that OP might not have recognized it because his drawing style in this comic is different then most of his other comics.
Fair points, other than that, but I still don't see why any of this makes OP an asshole.
User avatar #103 to #102 - snaresinger (06/22/2013) [-]
It's not different at all. It's actually MORE serious here, because credit is how these artists make their livelihoods. To you, it's just a joke site, but to artists, it's a source of income (or the only one, for full-time artists).

The part about 4chan is to demonstrate the point that yes, people do leave this site and check out the places that our content comes from.

Calling someone an asshole is a matter of personal opinion, so you can disagree with me on that, it's not really relevant. I personally think he is, because as an artist, it annoys me when people ignore the challenges involved in making money with creativity nowadays and worsen the problem. But again, that part isn't an objective matter, so you can decide for yourself whether or not you think he's an asshole.

Why must poets be insulted as so!?-    
   
I'll have you know that your, ho    
of a mother went down low--between my testicles    
and proceeded to pleasure me, to my very soul,    
that of which her own of which, she hath sold, to me,    
and I believe, she said that you were born with a very small dick.    
   
No seriously, just because our society values, high preforming specialists and worker slave drones, doesn't mean that a world that doesn't care about expression, cultural progress, or the quest for life is a world that is right.   
   
Frankly, if the economy was awesome, our government was enlightened and just, we'd have perhaps, perpetual golden age that would take humanity to new heights, greater that of any cultural or intellectual revolution of the past, possibly.

What the **** are you saying *****

Poems won't put food on the table

If I write some nice poems and give it to my family for dinner they will be all like "this **** is deep and all, but I can't eat it"

The reason we value worker drones is because they get **** done
User avatar #107 to #35 - infinitereaper (06/22/2013) [-]
That wasn't really what I was trying to say. My point was that it's sad we live in a world where people not only accept the detestable corrupt system we have going but actively encourage it in a brainwashed mentality. I'm not saying Poetry should be a way to make a living but I am saying that I think it's sad that the art itself is looked down upon. In an age where most of the adult population isn't even reading, maybe it's no wonder the majority of the population is ignorant despite a wealth of information.

As a guy who pulled a B+ in college major physics, I would say that this is only somewhat true.   
   
TBH, at least in my case, the was  not about getting the answer, its about how you got there. As long as the process was good, the numbers meant dick.

Well, in the pic above, its showing what I assume is a homework problem, so I was basing my comment off that.
