    The part about you, or the part about your job?

    I don't see why either should be insulting. The former, you have to be aware of yourself.

    The latter, well, it's the way a lot of jobs are. I didn't say it was a stupid job, but if you can be taught from scratch in 4 months, then it means you don't have to have an IQ of 160 to perform at an adequate level. Doesn't make it a stupid job, and it doesn't make you stupid, but citing it as the sole reason that we should recognize you as a genius isn't going to hold much water. That's not insulting, that's just the way most starting-level jobs are. Mine, yours, and everyone else's.

    To the defense of the early 80s kids...we did after all have to go through that Gen-X nihilism crap. Any glimmer of brilliance should be adorned with a medal. I mean look at me, I came out okay. I live in a basement, became a vegetarian, I’m a professional in the bike biz…oh wait never mind…as you were.

    Do you have any idea how hard art school is ?

    Less than a fourth that start foundations ( first 2 yrs ) make it to their senior show. The attrition rate is unreal, mostly because a lot of kids think they'll major in art because it's fun, and an easy way to get a degree. During foundations the faculty is trying to break you. It's the way they weed out the weaker students. If you make it past that round then you get to apply to the School Of Art, at which point the administration decides if they want to put up with you for another three years. So all that work can be for nothing.

    The hardest working students on any campus are the med students and the art majors.

    And, since you will be going to an SOA in a University, you will still have the same required hours that everyone else has to take.

    Good luck.

    As being part of "the next generation"(born in '91), I would have to agree. There are some serious fvckups at my high school. Manimal can tell you, he's broken up fights there, i'm sure.

    Born in '88 over here. I consider myself reasonably intelligent (31 ACT, Dean's List, blah blah shut up), but the one thing I've learned about the interwebs is that it is actually fairly easy to come off as "not dumber than a crutch." All you have to do the majority of the time is simply make a half-hearted effort at using correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Yeah everybody yells at the "grammar nazis" here, but the fact that you took the time to use spellcheck before posting something for the whole world(theoretically) to read usually indicates some higher brain functioning. Also not posting wildly inappropriate details of your personal life usually helps.

    Edit: Also, having a Slayer avatar lets everybody know you are READY TO ROCK. FACT.

    Bull fvcking sh*t.

    Med students, definitely. Law students, usually, particularly past their bachelors. Engineering students, definitely. Physics and science students, most of the time (soc. and psych and cultural and any of the touchy feely crap doesn't count).

    Art students??? Sorry, not fooling anyone with that.

    Well I'm sure art students HAVE to work hard because, usually, they are the the brightest bunch...just because THEY have to work hard doesn't mean the subject matter is that tough...

    And exactly how many art students do you know and how many studio art classes have you taken ?

    Are you basing your statement on assumptions or actual experience ?

    I worked my ass of in school to get my degree. It takes on average 5 years to complete a BFA degree. Very rarely does anyone do it four years.

    No doubt about this. When your grade is based much more on subjective standards, it makes it difficult for science/engineering types to process.

    Math is hard.

    No matter how much of a jackass someone is, they still deserve a shot at an education.

    Take MMike for example, engineering degree and can't fly a toy helicopter.


    OK, maybe not the best example...

    I don't know about that. Aren't there some types of math that are based on some pretty abstract principles ?

    I only got as far as AP Calculus in High School and placed out of math in College.

    You didn't fix anything. You just failed to comprehend the very fitting, albeit slightly obscure, reference that I made.

    Too many, and none.

    Based on observations.

    That doesn't mean anything. That just speaks for the art students and not the curriculum.

    Well, you certainly seem to have it all figured out.

    How did you get you avatar again ?

    Another member of this board. I believe it had something to do with Stinkyboy putting up a sign in his office or something to that effect.

    And what does he do for a living ? Could it be, something art related, maybe ?



    You argue like N8 used too...

    Why would I care what he does for a living? I don't even have the slightest idea what he does. The object in question was the school program. I hope a sh*tting dog isn't the pinnacle of his professional achievements though.

    I have no idea how N8 used to argue.

    He flamboyantly quits jobs for a living...so I guess you could say he's in the theater?
