- These images seemed extra cursed this time
Cursed Images, give my man...
- This was some much needed trash my guy
Abstract trash that hermits...
- I feel like everyone on fj assumes everyone in college is majo…
But hes a fcking white male
Lol, right. I'm studying to be an actuary and out of the gate I'll get around $60k, with very well defined raise points after that. There are good paths both ways.
Yea FJ for some reason really seem to hate everything about college so I never bother to comment on these kind of posts.
I've never meet a single person that acts in this smug way about their degree or belittles someone else for going a more traditional route, these comics and macros are just like the fake tumblr stories, aka things that literally never happen. For some reason people need to feel superior over college students and I don't get it at all, the most smug people I've met isn't even the liberal arts but STEM-fields like physics and chemistry.
Well yeah, FJ consists mostly of Americans. Their educational system is fucked.
Watch this video called the COLLEGE CONSPIRACY if only this video existed before I ever got involved with this financial curse.
That's where you're wrong kiddo. You can get any high paying degree but there is no guarantee of getting paid that amount in the future. Secondly you are not taking into account of all the time,money,gas,food and school materials that are NOT covered by your student grants and loans.
I already went to college and left that shithole twice. I have no intention of wasting my precious hard earned money anymore than should I have on a college that will put me more into debt than having to spend more money in paying these outrageously high student loans with diminishing returns.
These colleges want me to spend (not invest) thousands of dollars out of my own pocket in cash and go to college full-time meanwhile otherwise I MAY get reimbursed in the future and I have to work also work full-time to not only pay for my own living expenses but to also pay for this so called "investment" with $300 per book per class only to be used for only ONE semester and only using 4 chapters only to sell my books to the same store where I bought it from and get $2 for it.
Like these university professors always say "You can't put a PRICE on education!...Don't forget to sign right here at the bottom line so I can leech off of your government grant so I can use YOUR money to pay off MY student debts."
To hell with that fucking bullshit. I already got scammed twice by these fucking brainwashing institutions that have lost all credibility in regards to academia.
Anyone that tells you that college is worth it is either lying or mentally ill.
I am making more money buying my own books used for a tiny fraction of a cost,buying my own tools,my own equipment and literally saved 99% of what I could have spent at an indoctrination camp. I am not wasting my money paying for books and materials out of my own pocket just so this useless college can just pay me months later.
"But...but what about your certification and credentials?" I don't need a piece of paper only good enough to wipe my ass with to tell me how good I am at my job. I am doing fine without it and I definitely never needed it.
If colleges are so fucking great then a college should reimburse and refund you if you do not the job for that certain career you studied 4-6 years for and for time that you will never get back. Oh wait that's right. You cannot stand by your product 100% if you cannot guarantee it. We have guarantee on cars,tires even on bread and potato chips but there is no guarantee on a $100k-$300k piece of paper?
No thank you. College is a scam. It's literally a bottomless pit at this point. You know it's a fucking ABSOLUTE scam when you can't even declare bankruptcy on it. It's even worse when I wasted my time and money only to be forced to take courses on "gender inequality" and being told "not to rape"by some fat feminist cow. I thanked myself for pulling out out of college when I did and avoided this trap before it got worse.
im going for EE with a NE minor, when ever i see posts like this i have nothing but pity for the lit/arts majors, there choice not mine tho.
Well, they don't
I've been looking for some better-paying jobs and there is no shortage of great paying jobs for those "worthless liberal arts degrees." Some just needed a communications degree, others were cool with an English degree, and other liberal arts degrees. And you get a pay raise as you move up in pay (obviously). Some I've found pay upwards of 80-100,000 for mid level jobs. But yes, you do need experience.
What people fail to realize is that most of the times the degrees are supposed to just get you into the door and you work your way up. There's really no way you can work your way up in a field like welding. And if everyone went to trade school instead, then the trade would be over saturated and pay would go down as a result. So it's stupid to think that getting any kind of degree is harmful. Except for Gender Studies because that literally doesn't translate to anything.
I haven't gotten to college yet, but I have something resembling a plan. I want to get a degree in physics, and do graduate work for someone whose research I admire. Then, I'll work my ass off in an attempt to earn recognition and hopefully earn myself a position somewhere. My backup plan if that doesn't work out is to get a programming job with one corporation or another, seeing as programmers are relatively well-paid and always in very high demand.
Just graduated with a physics degree. That's pretty much the route you want to take, but do your best to get into some decent research while you're an undergrad. Look up REU programs to get into during the summer before your senior year; most of them pay you to do research for a while, and if it's a good institution and your research is worth anything it could get published. That'll help when you apply to grad schools, which will sometimes offer funding for your education in exchange for doing research with them under their name.
I burned out in my senior year and elected to not go immediately to grad school, which may have been a mistake on my part. I'm much more relaxed, but the job hunt is kind of a nightmare (I've had to work at a Wal-Mart for the past 3 months since I graduated, and I did pretty damn great in school; I'm starting to get job offers, but not in physics-they're in management, which also requires a degree in something STEM these days). Few labs will take you with just a BS and you're almost guaranteed to not get any engineering job. So start looking for research opportunities and applying for jobs EARLY. Even if it's just to get your resume out ahead of everyone else.
Also pay better attention in your math classes than your physics classes. You can do math without physics, but you can't do physics without math. My life would have been a lot easier if I was better at calculus and differential equations. Heed my words, little physicist.
....no way to work your way up in the trades eh? You do understand that you start as an apprentice, and continue training to become a journeyman over 1-4 years depending on trade. Then you can become a journeyman, and then move onto managing a shop/becoming shop foreman. Then you can be a lead operator. Then you can become the division lead. Then you can become the C.O.O. Just as you claim other people fail to realize you work your way up in office jobs, you fail to see that you work your way up in the tradesas well. Damn near every job is the same, Do good work, get promoted.
- You and I both know that's a gross overgeneralization. Saying …

I think he's just referring to those sad fuck feminists who need their 'safe space' then when they finish college they realise the real world doesn't give a fuck about your feelings.
Though that's becoming less true as these vermin spread, taking over more and more territory. Luckily that's not really happening in Australia, maybe in Sydney but they're all stuck up cunts that nobody likes anyways. But I feel really bad for a lot of American colleges having to put up with their bull shit. My university life I actually go to class and learn shit and go home.
Eh you know FJ, it's either one way or the other. There are no complex answers.
