Others might have been at this "try to build nations in the middle east" thing longer than us, but that doesn't mean we're newcomers. Obviously the political realities of the middle east is important, but the mistakes of the Bush Admin were much more fundamental. Even in hindsight it's hard to believe that they could be this retarded, but it seemed as if they sincerely believed that removing Hussein would be met with cheers from the Iraqi populace and that the new government would be democratic, fair, respectful to minorities, and be pro-western. It would be over in a month and W would be forever known as the Bringer of Liberty and be elected to seven terms. The whole political strategy seemed to be built on wildly unrealistic assumptions.

But now I find people making similar unrealistic assumptions regarding ISIL, that we can go in there with our superior army ISIL in a month, replace Assad in Syria, breakup Iraq into three countries and everything will be fucking peachy. No, it won't end like that, so stop these fucking rose-colored fantasies already.

It's easy for us to agree that Bush was foolish, but Saddam was a problem he inherited from his daddy, and their foredaddy's before em.

That's the classic problem with inductive reasoning, it always leads to the SAME SAME SAME. Though, Bushism can be considered an 'abduction' as the argument is held hostage to a premise of hope and faith.

Also to stay on topic with the thread, one might remember who the front runner is for the Republicans. I mean the Japs have cool scat porn, but if they think so low of us (that we could elect a THIRD Bush), we've got some issues.

You ever feel like killing yourselves?

I almost died a little while by hanging off my door knob. I came pretty close to losing consciousness and if I didn't act I would've died.

Did you find a way to turn your life around and make things better?

I don't even hellza feel particularly bad, I just have all these vague anxieties about the future like things will never get better and there's nothing I can do about it.

Don't be a fool.

You can become an electrician after attending a 6 month trade school. You'll make $50k a year changing lightbulbs for incompetent yuppie fucks. In 10 years or so of experience you can become a master electrician and make upwards of $100k. Just show aptitude while you're in school and your instructors/the school will place you in a job.

I have a cousin that did 10 years in prison and he was in his mid 30s when he got out, he went into a trade and now has a wife and a few kids living as best as he can. There are people in all sorts of situations trying to get their shit together however they can dude, you just need to keep fighting and you'll eventually find your way in life.

I wish you the best, but you sound more fucked up than I am. Know that as long as you have all your limbs and functioning sensory organs there is hope for you yet.

Well, you might consider the guy in question actually does claim a medical pedigree, in addition to single-handedly curing AIDS and Ebola.

No one is claiming that these presidents actually have doctorates in anything. Or at least, if they do have these qualifications, the BBC should be competent enough to have included these in the article. The article was about how African presidents, retroactively attained these designations after several years of presidency.

Which raises the obvious issue, if they did indeed attend classes on the subject, how much actual 'presiding' could they have truly accomplished? Either they are lying about their credentials, or they are behaving irresponsibly.

What's the standard length of time to hang on to a greeting card after someone has given it to you? If it were up to me it would be "however long it takes to empty shake out the cash and drop it in the garbage" but some people seem to take offense to that. Should I wait until the person leaves, at least?

I never understood it either until I realized that they're basically a $3 recepticle for whatever cash/check/gift card that you actually want to give to the person. You're supposed to pretend that the card is the real gift and the contents are just an afterthought, because at some point some asshole from the Hallmark marketing department convinced your grandma that it's tacky to give plain cash as a gift.

I am a hoarder and hang on to everything. Last week I found a 8 year old card, amazingly near the top of my piles. I guess I will throw them out if I move.

You have purchased your million dollar dream home. A man calling himself "the watcher" begins to send you threatening letters letting you know that he is watching you. What would you do in this situation?

I think I'd leave a friendly note on the door inviting the watcher to have some tea so we could talk things out.

I honestly wish something like this would happen to me. I would have so much fun stalking the watcher and trying to figure out his identity. I'd leave messages to him on my door, I'd leave little cakes outside for him and I'd invite him to 99chan.

In the messages to the family, the watcher makes it seem like he doesn't want the house to be altered in any way. Maybe I'd change the wallpaper to something hellza tacky just to see how he would react.

Of course I'd get a gun and install some cameras in case he turned out to be dangerous. I get the impression he's just some guy trying to be creepy, though.

That's actually how most non-abrahamic religions work. Sports heroes, great commanders, statesmen, etc. would be worshiped afterward. A cat is fine too. The culture and religion forms a direct connection to the people's history.

Can we have a thread on the sexual life of M&Ms?

Based on these two commercials (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsK3gZnDg9E and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtSIG8q0r9c) I think it is safe to assume that red and yellow are bisexual and blue is straight.

Ms.Green is slutty but most likely asexual. She just wants attention and admiration, not actual intercourse. All the other M&Ms want to fuck her. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKnCLHX6X4k)

Orange is straight, as evidenced by this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQZ2q9ks160) in which he makes it clear that he does not like having things shoved in his anal cavity.

Ms.Brown seems a bit like a prude (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q33drZUXSzY) but she was willing to strip naked in the image posted. I think we know too little about her to guess what she's like in bed, but she seems a bit frigid.

Thing is, I am flat fucking broke, I spent everything I had to get here on a "Student's Visa" which turned out to be a major fucking money drain from both the institute I registered in and the costs of living here (with no job mind you) are mind fucking blowing.
I spent around 9k Dollars from February till now, I just can't take it anymore.
No fucking embassy here is granting me any kind of visa west, I tried the Russian Asylum program and they shrugged me off like a fucking peasant. My papers are currently in an embassy in Moscow awaiting refusal for yet another "Airport Transit Visa"

also Maurice Tillet was just a normal French guy of decent intelligence who happened to develop acromegaly. He was basically Andre the Giant before there was Andre the Giant.

ballza evening, Anon.

What do you think about watching people die? Not necessarily in person, either; there are plenty of snuff videos out there. I personally find it extremely distasteful. I think that death is an intensely personal experience. It's the end of our personal sojourn in the world of the living, the ultimate finality of our own story. I don't think that is something that should be shared with just anybody, and in the case of snuff vids, to strangers for their amusement or to sate their morbid curiosity. At this most intimate moment, we should give those departing from this world the privacy they deserve out of humanity and common decency.

Perhaps the exception is those who have been sentenced to death. I think that's part of the punishment, losing control of the final moments of one's life, including who is able to bear witness to it. The state takes away this right in retribution for doing the same to another.

What do you think about all this?

I think we must accept that people's final moments are frequently made public without their consent. It's shitty and wrong, but it happens. So I watch gore without guilt. It helps me cope with the finality of life.

Who cares what dead people think? They're dead.

I mean, sure, sometimes dead people had nice ideas back when they were alive, but it is up to the living to determine what's worth acting upon.

What about their relatives, though? I mean, how would their mom feel knowing that their kid's death is available to see on the internet?

If the dead person is doxxed, there's always the possibility that jerks will send their relatives pictures of the corpse like they did to the family of Nikki Catsouras. Her siblings had to be homeschooled and her parents stopped going on the internet because people kept showing them the body.

I fall under the "morbid curiosity" category. I think curiosity is one of the most important traits for a human to have.

>One person I can think of doesn't even attend lectures [just reads the textbooks and other sources] and gets all As
I don't attend either and manage a mixture of B-As. The reason I'm able to do it is because all exam content is based on problem archetypes in the text. If you can get solution manuals and old versions of the text on the internet you're guaranteed a spot in the top 10%. All the marks I lose come from spacing out and doing something stupid or straight up not going over a section that appeared (strategically opted not to study for it, because there was only a small chance it was going to appear). The old exams not only give you info about problem sets themselves, but let you spend the least amount of time preparing for exams because you know exactly what sections are the most likely to appear. Information is fucking king.

And I'm just waiting for someone to spout the tired old "exams are designed to require creative thinking" line that a prof has fed to them. Do you hellza think any of these old fucks want to spend time designing specific problems for their course they almost never care about? Everything is systematic at this point and most are actually required by university policy to just adapt existing content from the course-affiliated text.

>You're still lumping people into arbitrary categories who share no discernible common features.

All I'm saying is the signal is in the course level, and that for that purpose grades are superfluous.

It's a basic and extremely well known case study in signalling and game theory. The employer wants to distinguish between high type and low type students. High types are classically assumed to do so through grades, therefore some employers will choose those with higher grades.

However, the average employer chooses for level. De rigor, level is the chosen signal of the high type.

There are many ways to interpret this, after the fact.

Grades are dependent measures, and often faulty. However, to enroll in a higher level course demonstrates initiative. It is assumed that everyone who at least attended the class, obtained some knowledge. And it's a cliche, but employers do prefer those who think outside the box, over those who demonstrate the ability to repeat information verbatim. To quote Donald Trump: "My secretary's got a great memory, but hellza I only hired her for her body."

You're the one who categorized Asians as a generalized group of not valuing creativity. I could talk about them by their exact nationalities, but then people get on me for being too technical. For this purpose, however, it doesn't matter what nation you talk about, Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, and various others all do better in the American school system. Your characterization of them as rich is also misguided, many of them are third or fourth or even more generations removed at this point.

I also brought up the SAT because you mentioned the cheating part. In your google search link there was nothing other than Asian taking the SAT in foreign countries cheating this very year. That was literally your whole argument with that point, along with a single anecdote.

Again, it's just all this backpedaling. First bookschooling is important but then it's not, we can talk about Asians as one group but then we can't when you want to score a debate point. You can bring up cheating on the SAT yourself and then claim it's irrelevant.

Of course, there is truth in every rumor. That this other man may be racist should not bias observations. It is well known that grades represent a certain mania in East Asian countries. The studying is well in excess of that which is healthy or sustainable.

It goes without saying that East Asia is the most dynamic market, and rapidly evolving strategic region in the world. Creativity and cheating are a union, you cannot have one without the other. One must be creative in order to cheat. It gets harder every year.

Now I will supply my own anecdote:

When China opened for business, the culture shock was extreme. State controls meant that business had to be done on an informal basis of trust. As capitalism took effect, these informal relationships became formal, and founded the networks of patronage upon which the economy built itself. Since you are dealing with one branch or another of the patronage network, there's a certain restraint built into the system, an honor code.

When these businessmen began to deal with US companies, they were often naive. One executive found his American suppliers to not only be delinquent on deliveries, but demanding a further payment (obvious breach of contract). Of course the American company knew the legal arbitrage value, the understanding it is less expensive to negotiate than take the case to court. Also, any business that takes its suppliers to court is unlikely to last. The Chinese company ate its losses, but it quickly learned the way business was done in America.

This was the era of cocaine fueled e-bubble jockeys. An era of Enrons, Madoffs, and Cheneys. Cheating in the west was the norm. The case files on the subject are numerous and ubiquitous. Creative solutions are euphemisms for hypocrisy and rule bending. 'Critical thinking' replaces logic, because logic tends to follow laws.

Nah, I mean the last class I had with him he came in asking about some random inane shit that was in the text but wasn't even covered by the class on review day (one day before the exam). Like he didn't ask even one question that ended up on the exam. His strategy is read the entire textbook and learn everything in it. That's far from 'know what's going to be on the test'. Dude just learns better that way I guess. I mean It's not like I know him, but with the questions he was asking there's no way that he was looking at any old exams. Funnily enough, in my last class our prof took his own test and got a 78%.

All of this is to say that while a knowledge of what will be tested on does help you, it's certainly not necessary to be a top student. On the flipside, knowing what's on the test doesn't 'guarantee' you anything as I know a lot of failing students that run in the circle of people that study all of the old exams.
