I did that when I first started college. I hated it dry.gif

I didn't have any skills when I started school. Actually even now I don't have any discernable skills, but I'm getting very good at "faking it"

I'm good at it, though. I suck at the job I got promoted to. That's why I'm back. tongue.gif

You've got it all wrong. It's fine you want to help out, but at least set yourself up as an independant consultant or something tongue.gif
Gashole
I became a server. Apparently I don't smile and act friendly enough. huh.gif
Your family has a restaurant? Ah, cool. My mother just opened one. She hasn't survived her second week. My siblings are there to wash the dishes for her and I'm probably gonna help out, too, when I go home.

I don't know, maybe my family is abnormal that way, but we just don't pay one another. What's yours belong to me and everyone else.

Meh...it's good to have a family that is willing to share well. My wife has a friend whose family has completely disowned her. She's going to have a baby and her mother could care less and won't help out.
Quistis88
Ohh, I see. Yes, our family owns a restaurant, a rather successful one to boot. I never knew you could promote dishwashers to servers . . . I'm under the impression that if they applied to be a dishwasher in the first place instead of applying directly as a waiter, then they most likely prefer dishwashing over serving.

There you go stereotyping Quistis. What is this world coming to. You're keeping the dishwashers down and not letting them work their way up to succede economically in society.

I'm so disappointed. dry.gif

Of course not. My specialty is spelling. By the way, it's succeed. tongue.gif

Yea, I guess I'm pretty lucky to be in my family. They're a bit dysfunctional sometimes, but wouldn't disown them for the world.

Well, I guess you couldn't have corrected their spelling unless they were writing their orders down. I still don't see how you could not be happy and cheerfull.

Oh yes, thanks for correcting my spelling dry.gif

Perhaps you could charge people on this site for correcting their spelling tongue.gif

Without dishwashers, we wouldn't have anything to eat off of. I support our dishwashers, and all dishwashers all around the world.

Unite my dishwashers, show them what its like washing dishes themselvs!

Sorry, I'm programmed to look for stereotypes. biggrin.gif It's the English department at the university. They drill these things into our heads.

They can always work their way up, yes. But only if they're motivated enough to adapt to the changing requirements of the new roles they may receive.

Sorry, I'm programmed to look for stereotypes.  biggrin.gif  It's the English department at the university.  They drill these things into our heads.

Well, there's your problem, English Department. They offer nothing more than fluff to academics and fake philosophy. They're just wanna be philosophers and should just stop pretending they have any value in the University setting.

My philosophy department would put down english majors a lot - Stereotyping is good as long as it's in my favor.

I'd have to agree with you. But unfortunately, it's harder to get a job with (just) a Philosophy degree, so I'm opting for an English one. If it makes you feel any better, I'm thinking of Philosophy as a minor. tongue.gif

If you noticed most people who have built amazing inventions and one of the largest construction machines in the world were English... biggrin.gif
Quistis88
But does that have anything to do with an English degree?

And I'm not English. Could I use that as an excuse if I do bad in school?

With that, you'll be fighting with yourself all the time.

I'm telling you that english majors can't interpret their way out of a paper bag let alone make it in society. Philosophy is actually a very useful subject in the real world. I have no financial background academically, but I've been able to get financial analysis jobs. The reason is because of the analytic skills I learned in Philosophy.

If I was an English major, I wouldn't be able to do that. I'd be spending my time deconstructing the financials using some phenomenological method or some other such junk tongue.gif

I thought when you're majoring in English you're basically going to become a teacher.

I don't really want to be a teacher. That's why I've been trying to make friends with Calc, Chem, and Phys. smile.gif

That's ok, I already argue with myself, might as well make it more interesting. ph34r.gif

Perhaps I shall look into Philosophy a little bit more, but the trouble is, sometimes I have a hard time with the concepts. The explanation of the concepts anyway. I understand most of the ones I've come across, but I can't explain them. And I take that to mean that maybe I don't understand at all.

That's basically my goal at the moment, although, I would also like to do creative writing. Perhaps journalism, if I must.

There's a lot to not understand in Philosophy. I've said before that it can get very technical and sometimes quite pedantic, but they need a reason to justify thier research.

For Speach Act theory, there were philosophers that would go through the dictionary to classify each word according to it's appropriate Act - very tedious work in my opinion.

um... the english? what have they invented thats worthwhile?

let's see...

telephone: american
transitor: american though the americans were too dumb to market it so the japanese got it
car: american
light bulb: american
playstation: japanese
paper: chinese
gun powder: chinese
genetics: austrian
airplane: american

so what have the english invented?

blood pudding
kidney pie
absurdly rich useless royalty
pikies
the word bugger
beer batter fried candy bars
the use of newspaper to wrap cooked food in
the barrister wigs or whatever the hell they are called

honestly the only thing that the english have created with consistency is good fiction writers

An English Major could also be a Writer, or alot become Critics? but yeah most are teachers. My friends sister is an Author and his Mother is to, but they moved away... sad.gif

And i said befor, the English built one of the largest coal mineing machines in the world, and they started the English language. Us country folk destroyed that though. biggrin.gif

oh hell no.... english wasn't invented by the english, it was ripped off by the english. think about it, why would an original language be based off of two vastly different protolanguages. that and at least every 3 out of 5 words in english are bastardizations of words from other languages.

You should look through the little article on Analytic Philosophy in Monty Python. It is all about early 20th century philosophy and I think approachable overall.

Don't worry about the intern position. I'll give a good reference.

American idol is very funny, i missed alot of sesson 2,3.

-I nailed a nail in the wall and forgot what i was to put on it?
-If the sky were to fall what would it look like?

American Idol, eh? I never did watch that. Not even Canadian Idol either.

There's a Canadian Idol? blink.gif I never knew that..
Quistis88
There is. And that's not very good either. I guess I really can't say I've never watched the A/C Idols, because I have, but only a few minutes. Makes me wonder why some of them even try.

@Quistis: In my opinion, you're not missing a whole lot by not watching AI. I watched one episdoe and couldn't bear to watch anymore of it. Plus I'm not one for reality TV, the whole concept behind the genre is kinda oxmoronic. We watch tv to get away form reality, right? Then along comes reality tv, bringing us back to what we're tryign to escape from!

I watched American Idol just to see the auditions. Some of the contestants were hilarious, plus Simon Cowell's comments were just so cruel it was side-splittingly funny.
