Luckily I never got a hard doxx and I don’t look the same

2018-10-01 02:32:55 UTC  

My advice to younger people would be not to go to college unless you can absolutely afford it

2018-10-01 02:32:58 UTC  

@Jacob where do you see these alleged advertisements?

2018-10-01 02:33:13 UTC  

Instagram lol

2018-10-01 02:33:26 UTC  

I've gotten FBI advertisement, too. But mostly ICE.

2018-10-01 02:33:45 UTC  

@Jacob Same

2018-10-01 02:33:48 UTC  

God, I could do so much cool stuff if I wasn't in college

2018-10-01 02:33:54 UTC  

@Wotan Klan-GA Sincerely deny everything and feign shock. You were never there.

2018-10-01 02:33:58 UTC  

I have no idea how people say it's the best time of your life

2018-10-01 02:34:00 UTC  

I hate it so much

2018-10-01 02:34:24 UTC  

4 years of living in poverty so you can *maybe* boost your income later in life, that you could have boosted an easier way anyway

2018-10-01 02:34:32 UTC  

I’m a debt slave because of college.

2018-10-01 02:35:14 UTC  

there are actual programs for transitioning military personnel that allows u to start early with the agency before your military contract is up.... but i dunno ab the FBI

2018-10-01 02:35:16 UTC  

Luckily the antics of J-Left types is quickly eroding any 'prestige' expensive colleges once had.

2018-10-01 02:36:01 UTC  

@lonewolf19d Many conservation corps wildland fire programs are explicitly veteran. Meant to move you from the service to a land management agency via AmeriCorps.

2018-10-01 02:36:41 UTC  

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN My good buddy is in one right now

2018-10-01 02:36:43 UTC  

@Jacob Instagram: “ICE liked your photo!”

2018-10-01 02:37:16 UTC  

College is a massive scam. The problem with those statistics saying that you earn more after college, is that there's no evidence that college is causing them to earn more. A simpler explanation is that they are correlated, since smart people are more likely to graduate college.

2018-10-01 02:37:23 UTC  

They could have made that money without college.

2018-10-01 02:37:32 UTC  

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN Chose it just to get the hell away from our leadership here, lol... i dont blame him either... sounds like fun work doing all the fire stuff

2018-10-01 02:37:52 UTC  

I've always planned to go to college but I'm not sure now, especially since I'm close to going.. I kinda wanna go for the experience but idk

2018-10-01 02:37:52 UTC  

@Jacob Sort of like Survivor's bias in a way

2018-10-01 02:38:18 UTC  

Yes, exactly that

2018-10-01 02:38:20 UTC  

I know online classes would work though also band be cheaper but it's not thte same

2018-10-01 02:38:24 UTC  

Idk, I think if you have a plan and an actual passion, college works well. Also depending on where you live.

2018-10-01 02:38:36 UTC  

@Felix if you do something like wind turbine tech you can make good money with minimal cost.

2018-10-01 02:39:09 UTC  

That's interesting 🤔

2018-10-01 02:39:12 UTC  

Underwater welding is 6figure too.

2018-10-01 02:39:16 UTC  

It's survivorship bias, because the dumbasses just drop out. So, ya, obviously the ones that are left are gonna make big money, because they're big brain nibbas.

2018-10-01 02:39:23 UTC  

I'm a decent welder

2018-10-01 02:39:33 UTC  

Wind is a good bet. Solar is more dependent on rare minerals and therefore likely to fluctuate

2018-10-01 02:39:44 UTC  

I live in a place where school is incredibly cheap. You can get a degree from a 2 yr Uni for very cheap and instantly transferred to the nearby State school that is also very cheap and many times grt students hired straight out of graduation

2018-10-01 02:39:53 UTC  

There are schools for underwater welding @Felix In Tampa I think.

2018-10-01 02:40:24 UTC  

Solar install is like a yob that beans can undercut.

2018-10-01 02:40:40 UTC  

I've thought about solar power area or being a linemen

2018-10-01 02:40:47 UTC  

Wind turbine takes ballz

2018-10-01 02:40:57 UTC  

Lineman is excellent money.

2018-10-01 02:41:00 UTC  

I bet man..

2018-10-01 02:41:25 UTC  

And honestly, even if college *did* cause you to make more money, would it be worth it? Increases in income make a much bigger difference at lower starting incomes. Is it really worth living in poverty for 4 years just so you can make $70,000 instead of $60,000?

2018-10-01 02:41:31 UTC  

@Wotan Klan-GA I have a straight white male rural guy for HR now, its so much nicer to have after the gay boomer followed by the trans rights activist

2018-10-01 02:41:38 UTC  

I kinda want a job where I'm not coupped up in a office..
