The purpose of school is not to make people able to get a job, and it shouldn't be. It is to hopefully make them into a well-rounded person with enough fundamental knowledge to pursue most other things. If they want to train to be a plumber, go get an apprenticeship. If they want to learn networking, go to a trade school, preferably not Network Academy, because it will only teach you Cisco bullshit.

Over subscription should be close to zero. It is no concern of mine that the ISP followed the industry standard of lying to it's customers of what it could deliver, then looks bad when it fails to do so. I will download and steam anything that I please, whenever I please.

Wrong. Also, they would just make new accounts, like the GNAA did. I realize that you and GP have invested a large portion of your heart into the names `DrinkyPoo' and `BringsApples', but most people don't give nearly as many shits about fake internet names and online reputation on an irrelevant site as you do.

You forgot the part where they vehemently oppose any real solutions, instead insisting that we live in a magical land where everyone rides bicycles everywhere and eats 100% locally commune-grown food.

Can't build nuclear because nuclear power = nuclear bombs.
Can't build desalination plants because some worthless mutant breed of fish might somehow kill themselves on it.
Can't build wind farms because equally worthless birds might fly into them.

So fuck those obstructionist idiots. They are against any technological solution to problems. Which is, no doubt, the result of wasting their life studying sociology or gender theory or whatever other circlejerking shit that places postmodern Marxist theory as the centerpiece of the curriculum.

Now, if you will excuse me, I'm going to go burn a pile of tires with spent motor oil just to spite them.
