It's admissable to me. Do you have something else?

Hugh, what is it you think happens in these liberal college professor classes?

They probably teach the linear algebra method for quantum mechanics instead of the differential equation version. Or maybe the 4 postulate version of thermodynamics instead of the laws version.

Not my school. My major, yes. Should have gotten an ag related degree.

Nope. Did two years at a JC and was introduced to Geology, which I
majored in at Tennessee. Choice of schools came down to $$$ since I was
largely on my own. I'm happy I went to a big school with so much to
offer academically and socially. When I went on to grad school at
Rutgers, I found that I had a more solid foundation in geology than all
the other grad students. They may have been brighter, but not as well
educated.
 
Now if the Vols would only return to the glory days.

What did you wind u doing w/ your degree? I wanted to major in Geology--was focused like a laser on getting onto volcanoes. Didn't want to be in lab, didn't want to teach, wasn't interested in economic geology, not nuclear nor petroleum. Which became somewhat limiting.

Summer of HS junior year I spent on a university campus
with others HS students interested in science. It was a
test run. I continued on to university and physics.
My choices serve me well.

Went to Rutgers grad school (Newark campus) and largely focused on
micropaleo and took two years of courses (palynology and foraminifera)
at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC on Saturdays. The tie
with Rutgers and AMNH cause me some exposure to the Lamont-Doherty Earth
Observatory which is/was affiliated with Columbia U. They were among the
worldwide leaders in deep sea drilling and marine geology.
 
Joined a worldwide geotechnical consulting firm (Dames & More) and began
doing field geology for them. Pretty varied from in-situ stress
measurements to geochronology of Coastal Plain formations. Began to move
away from pure geology after a few years to power plant siting and that
got me more into environmental science and environmental compliance
which I did for about 40 years or so.
 
A BS in Geology turned out to be an ideal degree to work in most
environmental fields. Requires a background in math and all of the other
sciences, so students end up being pretty well-rounded.
 
The job market for geologists has expanded and greatly changed. A lot of
folks end up doing underground storage tank pulls and soil and site
clean-ups. Some of the college curricula in Geology seem to be pretty
watered down today as a result.
 
Although I have no regrets, I am still enamored with the academic and
laboratory side of Geology.
 
If you like to read, they Annals of Another World by John McPhee. It is
a trek across the U.S. and through geologic time from Long Island to San
Francisco in the company of local geologists. You'll probably need a
dictionary of geological terms. I needed it.

I think their lessons are influenced by their socialistic biases. I
expect they can be easily distracted from the purpose of the class and
start spouting Marxism.
 
I think that no one has the guts to call their hands on it.
 
That's what I think.

My suspicions were well-founded. You have rocks in your head.

By temporizing you abandon the argument.
I am right and you are wrong.
There is an ordinance against it
and you know it; but do not want it
proved in public.

Kill the messenger! JS has a bee in his bonnet.
One might even say that JS is obsessed.
 
"President Bannon is on the wrong side of the majority. President
Bannon may be right when President Bannon is looking at President
Bannon's primary base, but when President Bannon is looking at
the overall scope of American voters … President Bannon's not
even reading the polls right for today. … Again, a small subset
of the population that President Bannon's obsessed with."

Great article. He must be hard-up for friends. ;)

Mandatory minimums are about like no-tolerance rules in school.

The only three countries on Earth that are not on board with the Paris Accord. And Nicaragua isn't because they wanted a stronger statement.
 
Nice company our country now hangs with. Thanks, Donald.

Rather irrelevant. What do people always care about what others do? Do
what is right for you.

Disagree, ken. The fact is, being part of the pact was largely symbolic for us. Dropping out is just a meaningless middle finger to the rest of the world.
 
Which trumps base is eating up. Apparently, they'd rather be the guy shooting hoops by himself - look at me, a total lone wolf, cool - rather than the captain of the varsity team.
 
All over the world, people are people and want the same things in life. At some point, well realize that we'd been misidentifying human exceptionalism as American exceptionalism all along.
 
Cheers.

I like the symbolism of the middle finger to the Socialist deadbeats
that run most of Europe.
