Zecheus (1072058) writes "Steven E. Koonin in an article published this weekend of the People's Climate March summarizes the "very, very difficult" problem for the climate science research community. There are hard questions, and the climate models today are not dependable. He warns against declaring climate science as either 'settled' or a 'hoax', because neither declarations advance the public discourse of politicians or diplomats who are developing the policies of environmental management."

Zecheus (1072058) writes "This community is extraordinarily rural. It is considered among the northernmost in the world. In the summer, temperature rises as high as 40F. There are more polar bears than humans. Even the usual ubiquitous and generous Norwegian health care is out of reach: inhabitants leave for the south to give birth or to die. On the other hand, it enjoys the highest quality Internet experience in the world due to recently installed fiber. Care to give it a try? By the way, the area has a turnover rate of over 25% every year."

Go to college to get an intelligence certificate. Its not a place to learn skills. At the end of college, you won't have skills; you will have a sheet of paper that says you are intelligent. That paper, called a diploma, says only that you are intelligent enough to learn new things. You want something else. You want a skill. Diplomas do not say you have any skill (see above). College is the wrong place to get a skill because college won't give you even a piece of paper that says you have said skill. If you don't even want a piece of paper that says you have a skill (these are called certifications), then don't even go to school.

You have an opportunity to get a piece of paper saying you are intelligent enough to learn things about computers, and you don't see that as anything but a waste of time. Incredible. Maybe you should be a business major.

This is a good time to punt work.
