Do you ever run into people during your studies or out in life who seem so unbelievably dumb and incompetant... and then you ask them what they do/are majoring in, and its like "Well i'm a doctor" or "I'm a civil engineer" or "I'm supervisor of the nth largest internet backbone"??? It's rather scary to think that you may be working in a building where the designer was an alcoholic partier during college and this just might be one of his first designs :uhh: :uhh: :uhh: :uhh:

The jobs that you go to as a trade school scare me the most.... and i'm talking about the people who weren't good enough for a real college... "Oh hey, I install gas lines under your house" or "I maintain 747's for the airliner you're about to hop on to". Kinda makes you wonder.....

Yeah that has definitely happened to me. It scares me when I think about how many idiots seem to be in engineering, or medicine or anything where there is any responsibility. Some people just aren't meant for that, I don't know how they make it through.

Oh, and I hope you weren't implying that only dumb people go to trade schools. Trades are a valuable part of society, just as much as any university degree. I apologize if you don't think that, I just hate it when people think they are better because they have a university degree, and that everything else is secondary to that.

Oh of course not, hell some of the stuff they do is actually very intresting to me. Unfortunately, their near non-existant requirements and low-cost and flashy ad campaigns tend to draw the dumber crowds....

While the trade schools may draw "dumber" people, they still have to pass the courses which weeds the worst ones out, and they don't last in the trades very long if they're incompetent. Electricians, pipefitters, sheetrock guys, garage door installers, etc, all end up getting a huge amount of experience in their jobs and end up being able to do most of it in their sleep. The outfits they work for feed greater responsibility to them in small increments, and if they can't handle safety and proper proceedures, they get stuck in positions where they're always supervised and never make any important decisions. I am much, much less worried about the work done by people in the trades than I am by dumb doctors or engineers or computer programmers.

Well, I'm also getting a PHD in experimental Physics so I can help out in the upper physics forums. Maybe next month I'll add a few more PHD's, any suggestions?

"I use my Degree ( a Doctorate) as a dating ploy. I had good quality calling cards professionally printed and I always present them on being introduced to anyone. Often, I simply introduce myself to a lady I find attractive and offer the card saying that I would like to meet her for dinner at some future date, if she is amenable. More often than not, I receive a call."
And you can see how these people deserve to be doctors

Wonderful news, Dr. Evo!! I'll see you at our reunion in the Virgin Islands.

Meanwhile, who's up for some elective cardiac or neurosurgery? I'm ready to get this show on the road!
