    Success Is the Best Revenge

    I have 3 college degrees...but if it hadn't been for my mother, I wouldn't have any.  My HS guidance counselor tried to convince me I shouldn't go to college.  Mind you this was in the late 70's - not something that would happen now, I sincerely hope.  The line I...

    B.S. is computer science.

    Technology moves fast, your tech degree is practically not applicable to the real world, but the concepts you learn in all those computer science classes - invaluable. :)

    And What Has It Gotten Me...?

    Nothing, other than a shitload of student loan debt and worthless piece of paper that I can't even be bothered to buy a frame for. Unless you're a doctor or a theoretical physicist, college degrees really don't mean a whole hell of a lot in this society. Sorry...rant over.
