More and more lately I really feel like I'm done here.

Sad.

College application fess are roughly $60 (according to google search).

So these accepted by 100 schools paid roughly $6000.

I applaud the financial success of the parents willing to pay $6000 for their indecisive children to have a broad selection of choices.

Of course that is a pittance compared to some people who spent tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to bribe their child's way into one (1) school.



This is the story I heard on the radio that prompted my comment.

Though this particular story is about scholarships ... don't you still have to apply to the (a) school to get a scholarship?

Granted - it's still a great accomplishment - and he did all that without an Adversity Score !

That is my understanding.

I've known a number of high school seniors who were asked to apply to certain schools, and a number of university graduates asked to apply to certain schools for their masters or doctoral programs... but they still had to apply.

One student was asked to apply and told that 'if" accepted they would "potentially" get a full academic scholarship. That is, there was a pretty strong implication that she was accepted.... however she still had to put in the application paperwork.

I'm certain many athletes are de facto accepted into certain universities... but I'd be willing to bet that even the best sill have to fill out/sign and official application. And, actually, these prospective students probably have to sign all kinds of contractual paperwork.

I'm pretty sure all universities require applications and academic transcripts.

Even these children of the rich people who bought/bribed their way in... still have to fill out applications.

Well done... though it is a very easy thing to do.

My go to technique has two parts:

1. I ask them if they have read all of the bible, 1st word to last word. This puts them on the defensive as the vast majority have not.

2. I tell them that they should read the bible.

By this point, they are typically pissed off at me and say some variation of they are not going to be told what to do by Satan.



"We" rarely get into more detailed discussion, because they really don't understand anything about either the bible, christianity or their own sect of christianity.

It really is great fun!

Does anyone know or wonder if movie theater seats are some sort of special that would they could prevent lice from being transferred from one infected person to the next rando moviegoer?

I'm just gonna buy a bigger TV.

It is totally understandable.

A few years ago I checked out for about 18 months. In recent years I have been clinigng to TFS for a variety of reasons... I like it, but am also fearful that one of these days it is going to be gone... I've kind of felt like it was the "duty" of some of us to hang on...

Over all I am becoming less and less a fan of the Internet. I feel like many of my news sources have so many pop-up ads that it is a pain in the a** to try to read their articles. That coupled with too much opinion and speculation is a drag.

Facebook is more and more a place for dumb memes, negativism and advertisements. I twitter is just dumb. Instagram is OK, but photography is what I do as a job (its what our non-profit does) so taking the time to post smart-phone photos is not appealing.

The only Internet site that I like to go to is iNaturalist and even that is losing its luster.

Sorry for the verbose response.... point it that "it" is totally understandable.

I really hate those "slow roll" ads - Like CNN has when you first land on the page, everything slowly rolls down, and then slowly rolls up, and if you're not careful you click on the wrong link or worse, some stupid ad.

Lately, I've been hitting up AP News, BBC, and occasionally RT (taken with a grain of salt)
Fox and USAT look too much like supermarket tabloids .. at least the last time I tripped across them.
