For I too have, far too often, put some money into something EA said would be awesome and it turned out to be a pile of crap. With time, you'll learn to be suspicious of anything EA says. Next year when they do "Restockening, the Sequil", I assure you that it will suck every bit as much as the original did. If you wait a few months before buying, you might be able to pick their stock up cheap (or possibly even free) during a Steam sale. That's just how you need to play the game, if you don't want to waste your money.

That's what I've found, too. I have more luck just seeing if someone will work with a team well, rather than look at their degree status. I'd take a kid with a high school diploma and a few open source projects out on github if I think he'll work on my team well. Unfortunately those are just the sort of people HR usually filters out.

Yeah. Between vials of smallpox showing up and their handling of ebola, I've gotten the impression that the CDC are a bunch of inept fools. Probably a bunch of cronies appointed in various administrations. You know when a bad time is to discover the people running your organization that's supposed to deal with infectious diseases in your country are a bunch of inept fools? When a disease that's so far killed 70% of the people who've contracted it enters your country. So far we've been very arrogant in our handling of this disease. We've thought we could do it better than some poor-ass country in Africa, we've thought that with the advanced medical technology at our disposal surely it won't kill nearly as many people, we've thought that the improved sanitation available here would help contain the spread, and we've been wrong on all counts so far. It'd be nice if we could start treating this disease with the respect it obviously deserves before 70% of everyone dies from it.
