    You should try San Felipe Mexico some time. Relaxing like Hawaii, but MUCH LESS expensive. It's like a desert version of Hawaii...but don't drink the water.

    Water is the last thing I think about drinking while on vacation.

    I have never been to Mexico. My ex was from Ixtapa and he always promised to take me there but we never made it. I would like to go sometime though. But Hawaii will always hold a special place in my heart. I also am a huge fan of NYC but for completely different reasons.

    granted. but college is about more than just gaining intelligence. it's four incredibly important, formative years in the lives of young adults. school is not for everyone, but i would say the more people who achieve higher education, the better.

    irritating positions:
    "i don't need 'book-smarts', i have real-world knowledge"
    "you won't learn _______ at your fancy college..."
    etc.

    There was a comic once that said something about spending thousands of dollars to send their kid to a university and he came back only knowing how to bounce a quarter in a glass. I know people with four year degrees who can't get jobs and when they do make less money then I do. It just depends on the person and the motivation.

    Eventually making a ton of cash is definitely not the point of going to college. Although for some people that's the only goal. It's a shame.

    Yeah I understand that. I am actually enrolled in college. I am just saying how those are irritating positions to you so is
    "What do you mean you're not going to school? You need college"
    "You won't be successful without some form of education"
    "I graduated from ______ university which means I know more than you"
    That's all I'm saying

    well the first two of those are said by people trying to encourage others, which i see as a good thing, even at the risk of being misinterpreted as being condescending. the third one is obviously rude and unnecessary, but in many cases it's probably true.

    the anti-college positions i pointed out are terrible because they come from a position of ignorance, since the person hasn't been to college and cannot judge, and secondly because they seem very defensive, like the person actually feels inferior for not completing higher education, so they turn it around on those who actually made the effort and achieved it.

    I do not feel inferior by any means, although it seems you feel a little superior in your arguement. Some people don't have the option of going to a 4 year college and do the best they can with what they have. Someone with such a high education should probably recognize that.

    I don't listen to their music but they were pretty good in 07.

    ok the 1st are not encouraging because you're assuming whats good for you is good for everyone else. If I go the route I want to go without heading through college then what's the point for college. You obviously think college is/was necessary for you and I do as well. But it isn't some out of this world idea that maybe some people can bypass college and be successful.

    And I don't know how you can defend the 3rd statement. I can find someone who didn't go to college who is smarter a lot of college graduates. It isn't some crazy Matt Damon janitor success story either I'm talking regular people. The statement "I went to college and am smarter than you because of it" is just as ignorant as "I didn't go to college and I'm smarter than you because of it"

    And you seem more defensive as if you think your diploma makes you smarter and someone saying it doesn't takes away from your college experience.

    Arcade Fire cannot generate hate. Only greater or lesser degrees of love.

    That's just their way. They're Canadian.

    I'd say they first two are not very convincing and inaccurate before condescending.

    oh well i don't mean you in particular, i'm speaking in general.

    i imagine there are legit circumstances that make it difficult for people to go to college... but if it's a matter of income, i do not understand, because grants, loans and scholarships are always available. if it's a matter of poor grades in high school, i really can't sympathize.

    the notion that the average college graduate is smarter/more intelligent/etc than the average person who did not attend college is not ignorant or indefensible... it's common sense. it's not very 'nice' but it's reality: some people are smarter than others, better at certain things than others, etc. i believe in treating people equally regardless, but if you want to get down to it then sorry but the average person is smarter for going to college.

    i personally don't feel like anyone is 'taking away from my college experience'. that is one thing that no one can take away. i just really wanted to offer a protest against this common attitude of putting down college. perhaps i should not speculate that it comes from 'inferiority' like i said, maybe that is unfair. but either way, i think it's just bad advice to discourage people in their educational aspirations.

    I do not recall anyone discouraging people from educational aspirations, although I do think it is a little crazy for an 18 year old who just went through 12 years of school to decide what they want to do with the rest of their lives, commit thousands and thousands of their future salary and 4+ years of their time without knowing for sure. I know people who have master degrees in whatever it is they decided to go to school for and either hate thier jobs because they felt pressured to make that choice at such a young age or they do something completely different then what they went to school for.

    Ok I give you that average person w/ college degree>average person. But you don't know this person from a hole in the wall so for you to play down their intelligence and look someone you just met in the eye who doesn't have a college degree and think "I'm smarter than them" without even having a conversation to gauge their intelligence is your superioty complex coming in to play.

    And your logic doesn't make sense. I don't know where you went to college but let's say it was ranked #100 on best colleges in the world. A respectable rank and graduating from there is an accomplishment but does that mean everyone who graduated from the 99 schools ranked above is smarter than you? By your theory, yes.

    And no one is discouraging college, like I said before I am in college so clearly I think it's good for me and I wouldn't discourage anybody from going this route. But if someone told me "School isn't for me I am going to do (________)" then who am I to say, "That's dumb you shouldn't do that school worked for me it will work for you. And if you don't go to college you'll always be dumber than me"

    To be honest I have learned a lot in my almost 3 years of college but I havent learned much more than I would have had I stuk my self in a library for 3 years. To be honest I am using college for what it has now become, a networking facility. Yes I am gaining the basic skills needed in my profession but I use it to network so that when I go out I can be advanced in my profession. Also this little piece of paper doesn't tell me I am smarter than anyway but it's going to open a door that otherwise would be close. Going to college is a more intelligent business move? I'll give you that. Going to college makes you more intelligent than the next man or woman? Naw I can't give you that G.
