Work Is Overrated

Unemployment numbers, schmumbers, it’s not worth getting all bummed out over. Look, you can wallow in your own self pity and get drunk (as long as your buddy has cash to buy beer), or you can grab the bull by the horns and improve your station in life. Any situation can be improved with some more college:

Face it, anybody that has kids now days, you are never getting rid of them. Their room now, it’s going to be their room 20 years from now. The wall posters will change (about as often as he changes the sheets) but his butt has formed a special relationship with his computer chair (there is still more zombies to kill). Just keep him away from girls, if she gets knocked up then the family under your roof just got bigger.

    i went to graduate school for seven years. Of course, in astrophysics, they actually make you do stuff. You can’t just blow smoke out your ass.

    College is a waste of time
    By Dale Stephens, Special to CNN
    June 3, 2011 1:23 p.m. EDT

    Dale Stephens dropped out of college, was awarded a $100,000 fellowship
    He says college rewards conformity and competition, not collaboration, theory
    Grads carrying heavy burden: College loan debt will top $1 trillion this year, he writes

    Editor’s note: Dale J. Stephens is a 19-year-old entrepreneur leading UnCollege, a social movement supporting self-directed higher education and building RadMatter, a platform to demonstrate talent. He is among the first recipients of the Thiel Fellowship, an initiative by venture capitalist and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel that gives 20 entrepreneurs under 20 years old $100,000 to fund their projects.

    (CNN) — I have been awarded a golden ticket to the heart of Silicon Valley: the Thiel Fellowship. The catch? For two years, I cannot be enrolled as a full-time student at an academic institution. For me, that’s not an issue; I believe higher education is broken.

    Stephens: With life experience, creativity, Internet tools, college degrees unnecessary

    With $100,000 work is pretty much unnecessary. With $20 mil Michael Moore could give some to the health care deprived.
