Graphics you say? What kind of graphics do you do for a CS degree? I'm also shooting for a computer-based career, but... on a different level.

subject: Global Studies
I'm planing to get a global studies degree, which is a mix of politics, economics, and history. I really enjoy my classes and the shit I'm learning. I hope to graduate and go to Japan and teach English through the JET program. So I was wondering if anyone out there has done anything like that and if they could help me out with a couple of questions I have. Where you in an urban or rural area? Did you like it? Something along those lines. Email me, or find me on aol or yahoo under jsbiffy. Thnaks a lol!
Did you know there are 24 flowers on each Oreo cookie?

I'm leaning the same way. I'm currently a history major but I'm thinking about a major in International Studies. Then I would have to study history, economics, political science, foreign language, literature, sociology, and cross-cultural communication. I'd probably try for a job somewhere in Europe. Germany maybe. I haven't decided what my area of focus would be yet.

this is just sad. did she really just notice all those measurements in the supermarkets and things like that? hell, they've been around for years. personally, i think the metric revolution stalled somewhere around 1985.

I, for one, never learned the metric system simply because I never had to. Then when I was in Japan I was constantly being confused by road signs, odometers, and all the other shit. I wish I would have learned the metric system when I was younger. It would have saved a lot of confusion on my end.

Metric system is a piece of piss to learn.

It all goes up in hundreds or thousands, that is all there is to it.

I don't get the imperial system at all, its far more complicated than metric.

That said a mile = 1.6 Km aprox, and 1 inch = 2.6 cm again aprox.

Does any one else think that this whole college thing is a giganitic rip-off and a waste of money? Seriously, a person goes through classes that he/ she will never use, than at the end of 10,000 dollars she/ he gets ... a piece of paper with fancy caligraphy. What a jip. The apprenceship system worked better.

After getting a Bsc with a minor in two different fields in science i can tell you a few things.

1) You get little to no practical experience. But you do get experience. That will be built upon.

2) You learn how to learn. and you learn how to learn in the sepecific field. IE computer science is all about learning how to apply what you know to something new. How to learn a new language and how to use it. But in biology it is all about learning how to memorize facts.

I don't think it is a rip off but i also don't think it is for everyone.
