    Me, reads comments: Man there’s a lot more of the ‘college ain’t nuthin’ but debt and a piece of paper’ people on Lemmy than I thought there were.

    Ya’ll are just trying to overcompensate for feeling inadequate about not going to college. If you don’t go, don’t go. It’s not for everyone. But don’t shit on and downplay the people who have the talent and ability to do so.

    “It just teaches you do be a useful tool of the machine!” yeah that’s exactly what someone who didn’t go or shouldn’t have went to college would think.

      Not going to college doesn’t mean a lack of talent or ability.

      In fact, going to college doesn’t mean you have either of those either.

      Here, you want one of my lollipops?

        I didn’t say that. Thanks for proving my point. 😊

            Yes. You know that “all thumbs are fingers but not all fingers are thumbs” rule? It’s that.

            Not all talented people go to college. But odds are the people who go to college are talented.

              If u ever went to college u would know it applies a lot over there 😂

              Theres talented people everywhere, and i would say theres even more in highschool than college. The diference? Money.

            I didn’t imply it. You inferred it. Incorrectly, at that.

            People that are perfectly capable of going to college choose not to. Doesn’t make them inferior. And I don’t think they are, by any stretch.

              You are just wrong in every reply. I don’t even care to write a college level explanation of it to you.

                From the sounds of it you probably aren’t able anyway.

                  I know better. You’re a jackass talking shit to people but obviously know nothing worth talking to. Get a life, loser.
