The Fact That You Graduated College Doesn't Mean That You're Smart.
All you did was memorize and apply information in a totally non-creative way, and computers can do that way better than you can. So completing college only proves that you're almost as intelligent as a really cheap computer. Furthermore, the fact that you paid thousands of dollars to learn information that is freely available on the internet proves that you were duped. Still feel superior to people who decided not to hop through hoops, memorize tons of useless information, and pay thousands of dollars for a piece of paper that only makes slave drivers more likely to put you to work?

Innovation is the true mark of intelligence. Only those who innovate move humanity forward. So instead of memorizing tons of information that you could easily just look up on the internet when needed, innovate. Create new stuff, new ways of thinking, and new ways of doing things. Put your brain to work by flexing its creativity, and leave your mark of intelligence on this planet while advancing its inhabitants.

I agree (for the most part) but it really depends on the Field. One thing you get from University (not necessarily College) is the "experience" and influx of different Culture and Ideals. You are 'exposed' to things which make you ponder and often see the World differently.Break away from ethnocentric World views.

But alot depends on your major and yourself. Those kids who went to High School and merely memorized will do fine but learn little. others will take small exposure to new ideals and "run with it".

I am College Educated and the smartest person I know is a Garbage man (seriously) who barely graduated High School. Guy makes me look daft and foolish and is so informed about a plethora of topics that it is mind blowing.

College in USA is unbelievably dumbed down and so boring. You can't challenge science dogma without getting mowed down by libtard professors.

I totaly agree, I have met some who do not know how to change a light bulb because they did not know which way to turn it. Another one stayed in a new cottage and stayed there two weeks before telling the landlord he had no hot water in the shower, he had it in the kitchen and bathroom sink but not in the shower, upon examination the hot and cold pipes were in the wrong place so when he turned on the hot only cold came out. Duh would not the ordinary person just try the other tap first. I have met some real winners in my life time.

By the same token I see many comments from folks who have never experienced what they are attempting to comment on...

-I think many have the wrong idea. A good University challenges you and encourages free thought. I was (and am) a Libertarian when it wasnt "fashionable" (during the early 1990s before I was voting age)- I had massive debates with my Poly Sci Professor who was a "Liberal" (for lack of a better word)...

Disagreements aside, and heated arguments- He CHALLENGED me. Challenged me to look deeper, think harder and better compel my own agenda (since we ALL have an agenda)- And although he and I would never agree on Political issues, I received very high marks and his respect.

-Anyhow, its not a clone factory. Go hang out in a University Town for a week and you will see more diversity of thought and creative thinking 'outside the box' than you think.

-Try it. Find a Coffee Shop in A2 (U of M) or OSU or any other decent sized University. Sit for a spell... You might be very surprised.

You think THATS bad?

I majored in Anthropology. Everyone (and I DO mean everyone) said "what the fuck is wrong with you?"

I had shit all figured out too. Was going to go live with the Bushmen in Africa and write books about my journey, learning Shamanism as well (and doing some crazy wicked drugs to contact 'Spirits')- Shit was going to ROCK!!!!!!!!

...Well, here I am many years later and never once have I worked in my chosen Field...Nor will I...Ever... =(

BUT, it was probably the best four years of my life- made me who I am... Introduced me to SO MUCH. I would do the same thing if I had it to do all over again. =)

College also teaches people how to work together op. You are right though. Graduating college doesn't make you smart. I think most people that went to college would agree.

I didn't go to school until my late 20's and had a similar view before. Keep telling yourself it if it make you feel better. Inovation is not done alone, and it isn't all about money.

You can't even use proper grammar and you're talking about other people? The first sentence you wrote should read: "I know a recent college graduate WHO cannot spell." You wrote "THAT" instead of "WHO."

The third sentence you wrote begins with a conjunction. It is improper grammar to begin a sentence with a conjunction.
