Why do we think the only point to a college education is to get a job? I've found great satisfaction in not being mystified by the general workings of the Universe and information beyond what's provided by a high school education. Most of the people I know wander through life clueless about everything, scared of the world at large, and only comforted by the safety of things they've known since birth. All of which could be cured by a little higher education. Knowledge is power and it's very gratifying.

A college degree in woman's studies?Yeah, maybe if money is no object. Now a degree in chemical or electrical engineering? TOTALLY worth the tuition!

I can smell a smoker. Always. It clings to their fingers and clothes. You think you don't smell because no one is going to be rude enough to say to your face...hey,your hair STINKS. Your fingers STINK. Your clothes...stink. YOU STINK

Keeping an eye on your kid's texts/calls and internet activity is perfectly fine but I will never understand reading your kid's diary. What kind of trouble can they get in by writing their thoughts down in a book only they will ever see? So you read it, risk them finding out and closing up even more, congratulations you have just proven that your kid cannot trust anyone, not even their own parents. My neice is going through this right now and her mom is forcing her to go to a therapist. Fucking moron.

You're not crazy. I'm not saying it has or would, but not crazy.

I went into $20k debt for college, and my brother didn't - he immediately started working at UPS. 15 years later, I have a $100k/year job, and nearly $500k saved up for early retirement. He has a $45k/year job and a hernia, and no savings. Yeah, college isn't a guarantee, but it sure worked for me!

A relatives children are being raised in the US according to Filipino culture. I find many things good about the culture, but the parents have no control and the kids are little hellions with no guidelines. The eldest has no life of her own because she is supposed to look after the younger ones who are aged 3 and 7. It's miserable to be around them. I just want to know if this is part of the Phillipines culture to parent this way?

I can smell liquor odor coming out of a person's skin pores too. I don't have to smell their breath. Gin is the worst.

You only think nobody knows you smoke. That body odor does not come from clothes. There is a waxy sebum body oil smell mixed with foul cigarette odor that comes out of the skin pores. I would never be so rude as to tell my friends that I can smell them. I just avoid being close to them.

I wish my kids school would put out written guidelines as to what constitutes a trip to the principal. After school yesterday my DS6 was horsing around and pulled a girls arm and she said it hurt. A teacher saw and told his teacher. (He had already told me it happened and was remorseful.) His teacher emailed me and said he needed to speak with the principal about it. Really? Why not owe time at recess? Am I crazy to think a trip to a principal is excessive? If he were a problem kid, then I get it. But one time? Come on.
