Do you remember the line on the movie The International?
The bad guy is playing chess with his son and asks him what does one do when he finds himself in a situation he cant get out.
The kid responds, "Go further in".
Think about it.

Good luck.

Glock20, sincerely with all due respect, the Marine Corps trains soldiers; colleges train sheeple. I am in a similar situation, and am deeply disappointed with my experiences with the postsecondary education system, though it's better if you're employed by it than being "educated" by it, IMO.

"They" train people to repeat the answers they've heard and tell them that they are smart, and frown upon assertiveness and independence and ESPECIALLY "hypermasculinity." Don't kid yourself, it's part of a big ****storm of a conspiracy to undermine the strength of the people by marginalizing those who fill the societal role of protector and villainizing independence in thought, action, and attitude.

A phoenix-like rebirth is the only hope.

Well put.
I've been working in corporations since 1984 and in hindsight, I actually resent the fact that colleges do not emphasize entrepreneurship. Instead, of fostering innovation and new businesses, they teach you how to be a corporate clone.

That said, I think the O.P. needs to be aware that there is a database available to corporations which keeps track of people who have sued their employers. I have to assume that appearing in that database makes finding future employment difficult. Take a valium and pretend to be enlightened by your class.

To Ballisticism: "Colleges train sheeple????" Give me a break, probably the only thing college really imparts to its students (for the most part) is the skill of critical thinking. "Hypermasculinity"???? Really??? Don't you paint a lovely picture yourself and others like you. I call that being an Alpha male ass****!! What a crock of bull. You're a pneumocephelic!!! Sorry, I probably shouldn't use college words.

Did you even go to college? If so, you obviously aren't too observant. Yes, universities have a left wing bias and train people to be conformist.

You spelled it wrong. It's pneumocephalus. Maybe you're right about one thing. You shouldn't use college words, it makes you look like an airhead.

Possibly you were an honor student in High School, and possibly received a full ride scholarship to an Ivy League institution based on your proven academic prowess; however, I'm also thinking it's obvious you're not an English major.

-"pneumocephelic"- come again?

Awh, thx MD,

It is becoming more clear to me now.

I was thinking he might have been going after anencephalic, you know, comparing Ballisticism's IQ to Homer Simpson's, but his chosen prefix was the throwing me off. Air on the brain, I get it now.

One thing is for sure, MrT should be sure to first have all his "grammar ducks" in a row when trying to insult someone in prose.

Here's a couple three conundrums based on your assertion.

US Naval Academy, US Air Force Academy, and West Point

Hmmmmmm...........
