    I believe mine went into the lateral file cabinet while it was open after it went airborne. I have faith when my kids go through my files when I’m in Valhalla that they will find it, hoist it up to the clouds and yell our in unison”We found it Ole man!!!”:D

    texaswoodworker said “Who the heck needs someone who majored in gender studies?”

    Major cities that make laws that workplaces have to create gender neutral bathrooms need those ridicules majors... :eek::eek::eek:

    My SIL works in downtown Seattle as a journeyman plumber ($55 per hour) and says there is no shortage of work for creating these bathrooms in the foreseeable future...:eek:

    In some cases, the degree is good- but being accredited by your industry is what gets your resume past the HR watchdog. Having your BS in Engineering is good. Having made your credentials for licensing as a PE is better yet.

    It is good to be a welder. Better yet- you passed the exam and are a Certified Welder- and all of the specialties that can branch into. I worked in the safety field- and had the papers hanging on the wall- Certified Safety Professional (CSP), and was accredited as an Associate in Risk Management, and as an Associate in Loss Control Management. Those are senior level creds in that field. Gent asked me one day "What is a CSP actually good for?" Told him it was good for an additional $15 thousand in pay.

    The guy (or gal) that is a journeyman electrician, plumber, or like Cinder- a diesel mechanic WILL have a job- and decent wages. The folks with the BA in Art History..... not so much.

    Why do we change our minds on what guns we want to buy so much?
    I'm constantly cycling through 10 different guns I want to buy.

    I need a sugar daddy with some money

    An education is never wasted, in my opinion.
    There are many Associates degrees that make a good living. Dental Hygienist, Medical Technician, physical therapy assistant, firefighter to name a few.

    I’m pretty sure you don’t want a sugar daddy.

    Oldest grand son is in a graduate program getting his PHD in biology. He will be 30 by the time he gets it. He is debt free and the graduate program pays him a stipend since he has to teach and do research. Stipend = not much but school is covered. Debt free = he went to community college than state college and worked while living at home. Now on his own in another state.
    Next grand son did the community college and is now in state college getting a degree in accounting. Never would have figured him for that. Also debt free, living at home and working.
    Grand daughter graduated HS and has no clue what she wants to do.
    Still have one grandson in HS. No idea what he is interested in.

    people are actually contacting Corona about Coronavirus. the people I know who are that stupid would not be able to figure out how to contact Corona. there must be a thin sliver of people just dumb enough to do that, and just bright enough to figure out a way.

    I am a firm believer in education and believe that all should pursue some kind of higher education whether it be at a college or a vocational school. I also believe that there are some degrees that are just not worth the time, effort, and money that's put into them.

    For associate degrees, there are certainly exceptions, but notice that all of the ones you listed involve medical/first responders. Other fields might not have as much need for an Associate's degree. I believe that some places even require firefighters to have a Bachelor's in fire science now. That's actually my backup plan if the LEO thing doesn't work out, though I wouldn't be looking forward to going back to college so soon.

    I am a firm believer in knowledge. Useful knowledge.

    College isn't suited for everyone. There are many professions where a college degree is required. But, there are many professions where a person can make a very good living without one.

    Many people overlook the trades, until they need a plumber or electrician, or a mechanic. These are still very lucrative fields to enter, and many are lacking in qualified applicants to fill prospective jobs in many areas.
