#1 The concept of selfism finds it's origins on the knee, not the campus. The campus only provides credentialing and a networking of like minds.

#5 They laughed when I strode into the ER with my cuttin face on. But when I asked for the #7 truncheon and 2 pair of triceps they suddenly stopped.
It's all about your moves, your attitude and what you've seen on TeeVee and watched on the YouTubes. Anyone can do anything with the proper attitude. They may not do it well, but they can try, and trying should be enough amirite?

I'd be surprised if it were anything but genetic. It's not unique to humans - different breeds of dogs exhibit distinct ranges of temperaments.

#11 And of course, my wife says the administration is pushing for student success! Which means they all get A's to C's and screw it if they actually learn or not.
And of course, now with Tyrantcare, they're not hiring fulltime faculty now, just part timers. At least the oil industry can't and won't do that.

#12 They are clueless. They are entitled to the massive debt. Our country has a demographic ponzi scheme going and the current generation in college is gonna get stuck and they voted for it.
