    I was talking with a friend last night, and he started talking about how cool my parents are. I'm 19 and I still go shooting and camping with my dad. We are also starting to work on my truck together. I still live at home and they don't care if I have friends over or what goes on in my room for the most part. Over all I have really awesome parents who not only get **** and are "cool" but are still parents too me.

    My folks were both nerds in school, never played sports, never did drugs, got perfect grades, both hold PhD's (mom in math, dad in English). They have been supportive, but certainly not cool.

    Love the tag: "Mooshu eats hipster taint".

    Yeah I don't know about all that. Cool parents apparently don't make the young'ins do their spelling and grammar homework.

    Say what you will but parents and the cool factor don't mix. Instances don't count.

    New Quiz: What does TheMontashu's perents think of TheMontashu?

    1. That's why he is an only child.
    2. Instead of taking him shooting we should tutored him on 'riting and spelting.
    3. Move the F*@% Out!
    4. TheMontashu sucks!!!!

    You mean aside from the fact that the real world is harsh and he should get a f*cking life....

    Oh wait...that has nothing to do with your post...but everything to do with getting the f*ck out, and getting a f*cking life...

    I bet these (and I mean Teh Mooshu's kind) kind of people in the work force are why I want to kill someone in my office every single day...

    Parents are not supposed to be "cool". If you think they are totally cool, they are failing you.

    You're 19. Move the fvck out.

    My parents didn't get cool until I moved out and went to college.

    I guess up until then they felt they had to be stuffy and lead by example.... or maybe I got a little less retarded.

    :stupid:

    Now that I've been out of the house for 3-4 years, I've come to appreciate 2 things:

    1) My parents raised me well
    2) How cool my parents are


    It took me up to this point to realize both things, but I'm glad I know realize them.

    Until I have children and can speak from experience, it seems like parents' job is to raise their children to be contributing members of society. My parents were consistent, loving, supportive, rewarded good behavior, punished when it was deserved, and pushed us out of the house when it came time for college.

    My parents are extremely cool, but it wasn't without the two decades worth of exremely hard work.

    I'm going to school full time during the school year, and working full time right now to pay for school. I could move out now, drop out of college and be stuck in a bike shop for the rest of my life. OR I can put money away for when I transfer to UC Berkeley (unless I can get an academic ride, I'm sitting on a 3.9 something at the junior college near my house)

    Does UC Berkeley let in people who cannot even spell PARENTS? Standards must have dropped.

    No it has not, his jr college must have some kind of connection to Cal.
    I'm applying there and with legacy, a 3.7 gpa, 1990 SAT scores, and multiple honors and AP classes, I don't have a chance of getting in. If he really does have a 3.9 and his jr college has some kind of connection then I guess it could be possible.

    Half ass close gets you a "A" in any classes that have writing in them. I think as long as you manage not to smear human feces on an English paper you get a C+ by default.

    If you are talking out of high school that is very different. You can get into Berkeley out of Jr, college with much lower grades, and SATs don't matter. I know kids getting in with quite a bit lower grades (something like 3.4s 3.5s) and yes I am going to a school with one of the top 3 UC transfer rates

    It's *much* easier for transfer students to get in that freshman. That being said, given that the number of students getting admitted will be less over the coming years, I still doubt he'll get it.

    But who knows... I knew a LOT of book smart, stupid people at Cal.

    As for the comments regarding grades, it's much easier to get A's at Diablo CC than at Cal. Even if he gets in, I doubt he'd get that good of grades unless he chooses one of the hippie-dippie majors that are about emotions and feelings rather than true knowledge (see sciences and mathematics).

    I got bounced out of basic Calculus at Cal, but managed to get A's through High Schools AND at SF City College when I went for a refresher. Real sciences and mathematics at Cal are truly elite.
