Topic: Why the us should cut useless courses from college degrees.
Replies: 1076

So have we defined what makes a degree "useless" yet, aside from "the OP does not like the classes" ? I mean, most business and management degrees sound like a waste of time and money to me. All you really seem to learn is how to kiss some corporate fatcat's ass, or kiss the ass...

In the house I spent most of my life we called the garage "the basement"... and had semi converted it into a lounge (so instead of a bungalow on top of a double garage it was more like a proper two storey house). This is the closest I have got to being in a house with a basement... I don't...

To the wider topic... I believe there is a double standard. I'm not entirely sure it's entrenched in legislation but you do see signs of it in how people think. The UK? It's just called "Causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent" instead of "Rape". As I said m...

Yeah, just found out about the audio recordings. I mean, I already believed Depp's account but this seems like a smoking gun. EDIT: guys, this really should have been put in its own separate thread.

Harvey Weinstein attends the womens march in 2017 , Amber Heard is a human rights advocate . Why, with these supposed advocates of human rights showing their true colours anyone ought to be cynical of any celebrity pontificating. The only thing I know about Amber Heard is that she may be an abusive...

Replies: 76

Every time a centrist discussion thread has been attempted, it has slowly withered away within a month or so. This is because centrism is boring and nobody cares about it. I think it is because centrism is ill defined. And left and right aren't? The only difference is that people throw around the t...

Anyone remember Arkolon? According to Merizoc (who I don't trust ever) he's a Marxist now. Go figure. Nah, I think Merizoc was right, he had a second account here or something where he did claim some sort of Marxian economic stances. Fascinating. Well, it's not that surprising.

None. 2) And, do you think they have a hand in shaping how a culture or society may approach certain scenarios? Definitely. Not even legends... just ...

I think so and I also think it was over the feminist thread. Could be wrong though. That thread is a dumpster fire that ought to be closed down and have people make separate threads for different gender-related topics. It was closed down and then people who don't use and who refuse to use and who t...

Revisionism is just another word for "new theorising". The difference is that people will accept classical mechanics as being superseded by quantum mechanics but the idea of revising historical understanding apparently requires a new word completely. Revisionists should be reserved for ac...

Tertiary education in the States has a very good reputation. It's expensive, yes, but a large part of that is that it's a federal country with really weird ideas about economics.
