The net shorthand works on the teenager boards. Unfortunately for hypno this board is populated by adults who have already graduated from college, are working their careers or raising their families, and have something for their efforts. Namely, life experience. I thought I knew everything that was wrong with our government when I was that age too, but time is a wicked teacher and life isn't so black and white.
Oh, and FYI -- college degrees are very important to obtaining that entry level job. I don't know how many of those newbie college grads are in our company running the cash registers. I've also lost count on how many I've had to turn down when I'm hiring my Engineers because they don't know what an IP address is. Now, those of us with those useless certifications (mine happens to be technical) are making 60k + in our Managerial position. But then our company isn't that successful -- its only the largest grocery store chain in the country.
Just keep blindly listening to that college professor like a good little lemming, and one day soon you'll be out in the workforce ringing up my groceries.
