#3395197 how's the economy where you are, GTUers?

Posted by cestqui on 01 October 2011 - 01:44 AM

Well, I can only speak from my own experience as a student. My state (Washington) just recently hammered out a budget which aimed to close a ~$5B deficit. I can't find the exact figure, but about $500M of that came from higher education, a large chunk of which came directly from my school, the University of Washington. What this means for me is that next year my tuition will be 20% higher than it was when I started at UW (plus increases in room and board and mandatory fees), about a dozen classes have been cut from my civil engineering program, and based on the public discussions among faculty about the future of the department, I don't think it'll be anything more than a glorified tech program in a year or two. Additionally, the current economic strain is making it difficult for the donors who fund my scholarship to come up with the money to pay, and my financial aid has been reduced substantially from last year to this year. Even though my mother had to stop working because of a severe back injury, and my step father was laid off from his job, and their current income is ~$27,000/year, I'm still forced to take out student loans to scrape by. And scraping by doesn't really include the cost of school supplies or text books (my text books came to a total of over $800 this quarter for five classes. What. The. Fuck.).

In short, everything associated with higher education is getting more expensive, and the funds that are supposed to allow students to pay for these ridiculous expenses are dwindling.

#3393670 Baptists picket Foo Fighters show

Posted by cestqui on 18 September 2011 - 08:44 AM

Religious zealots are to picket outside an upcoming Foo Fighters concert after accusing the rockers of promoting "fornication, adultery and idolatry."

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church, comprised mostly of Pastor Fred Phelps' family members, are planning a stake-out when Dave Grohl and his band mates play the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Kansas on September 16th.

A statement from the anti-gay fundamentalists reads: "These people have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, f**s...


Fuckin wierdos

#3393592 the problem with time travel:

Posted by cestqui on 18 September 2011 - 01:48 AM

Y'know what my major gripe with time travel is? Y'know when you go to bed coz your exhausted and (say fer instance) set your alarm clock for 8:00 and then you wake up early at 7:45 and you think 'ohw fuck it im up now' and then you make yourself a cup of coffee and your breakfast and then you realise its 7:45 pm not am. man i fucking hate that shit with a vengance. so youre up then for at least 2 hours arnt you? Someone should invent some degice of some discription that could take back those lost hours and give you a kip voucher of some description that could be redemed at your conveniance. fuck yeah man

what... are you?!?!

It's scientifically proven. You'll sink like a stone.


Chimps can't swim because they don't have sufficient body fat to keep them afloat. Are you saying black people are glorified chimps, sir?

glorified?
