It sucks dude, it really does...

Both of my sisters got through school with ease...and went to better schools...I always got through everything with common sense...I have terrible study habits and procrastinate...but I realize you need education to do what I eventually want to do...I wish it wasn't that way, either.

But it is...and this helps...even though I feel like I'm floating right now.

The wife and I went to a new habachi grill place for dinner tonight, and I'm pretty sure our chef was high as a kite on something. He was tweaking up a storm - it was pretty obvious. Fidgety, kept dropping things, and couldn't stand still, which was a bit disconcerting considering he was flashing a very sharp knife all over the place.

But the food was good, so what the hell.

I'm a horrible student...I'd rather play video games/get fucked up/post on ChiefsPlanet/do anything but what I'm suppose to do...but I'm pulling a 3.0 GPA (which is not something I'm proud of) so I do enough to get by.

I've been putting this particular assignment off for two months...the only way I'm getting it done before noon tomorrow is to take the easy way out.

Be careful with that shit.

This is pretty common on college campuses these days. I even read an essay in Nature ("Towards responsible use of cognitive-enhancing drugs by the healthy") where one of the authors, a senior researcher, took Adderall so he could plow through some difficult math that he otherwise would not have had the concentration to get through. If I really need to think about a problem, many times I won't even try unless I have a 5+ hour block of time, because without drugs it will take me 2-3 hours to get into the zone to where I can actually make progress on the problem. I have to admit that taking a pill that would increase my productivity on my research by 100% is pretty tempting.

My situation is that I can't really produce good solid work unless I've had some time to wrap my head around the situation or analytical framework. Then once I get an understanding, or at least a point of reference things really get rolling. I don't think any drugs would help me get to that point.

Join Military. People suck it up and fill blue-collar jobs while looking for white collar jobs (think about the last major depression, families moved across the country just to get a job). Government willing to pay for schooling to fill jobs that are lacking numbers(as long as certain strict requirements are filled while attending school, i.e. attendance, GPA, out of class participation). These are just ideas to be discussed. I don't have a strong stance on any of these things.

Give all US workers Ritalin so that they can be more productive, thereby increasing the value added of US products, and increasing exports, and in turn jobs.

Maybe I'm wrong. Never taken the shit.

A lot of times the analytical framework has been floating around in my head for several days, but I need a good block of time to put meat on the bones. Usually, I have to quit (sleep or family obligations) before I've come to a good conclusion, which probably means several more days before I can get back to the problem. I've never taken anything stronger than caffeine to get the gears turning. But my daughter is ADD, and the difference with and without drugs is night and day.

Alright.

New policy. Any able bodied person who drops out of high school, or within 1 year of completion of HS, that isn't either 1. employed full time 2. at least half time school gets an auto-enrollment into the US Army-Marines-Navy or a WPA style work camp for 2-3 years.

This will put non-productive people into earner rolls, teach responsibility, team work et al, and allow them to save/earn for college upon completion should they so choose. It also encourages those capable Americans who just play guitar hero all night to get their asses to jobs or schooling, thereby giving them Skillsets to become employable in more technical jobs.

This helps the economy because the growth of military personell will increase the demands for goods and services for those new troopers, as well as in the communities in which they are based. This further stimulates the economy by putting significant numbers of system-suckers into the workforce, earning their way, paying taxes and hopefully having a nation-wide positive affect on productivity. The threat of mandatory service can also be stimulating as people may become creative to develop a company/job to fill their requirements.

This plan encourages people to finish high school, motivates them to do something productive after school, increases our military numbers and reduces stress on soldiers who are ALREADY productive citizens both in the military AND private sector(like my brother who owns a company and is being recalled to go to Afganistan, instead of earning money and paying taxes for the next year+).

Its a net win-win for the national economy and individuals.

Simple legalize, drugs, prostitution, etc....

Tax them appropriately. COnsider how much money is spent yearly on illegal substances. Consider how much could be made from taxes that could be used to either cover current budget deficits, spend money on road project,etc(to create union jobs), or to reduce the tax burden on the populace.

How many jobs would be created by having local production? Could be a huge cash crop.

Man, I've spent an assload of long nights writing papers and shit. Never took anything except caffine.

Me too. 24 hour coffee shops were my best friend, and still are occasionally. Nothing else though.

My old roommate pounds energy drinks like crazy on a daily basis and indulges in the occasional "concentration" assistance. I think if he stopped cold turkey his heart would just stop. I don't trust that shit in such quantities.

There is no way that Hootie could have dropped all of those different ideas into one paper and had it make even an iota of sense. We call it a data dump, because rather than properly developing your ideas with thorough exposition, you just pile on some more crap to hide the thin stew that you've cooked up.

I hope that your prof. is as laid back as you claim, because any one of those ideas could have made a ten page paper. Putting four or five of them in there is asking for a shit kicking.

Sweet. I was 23 when I finished undergrad then I burned 3 more years at grad school. If I could have figured out what school to go to after that I would have done it.
More power to you.

You can quit school now. They abolished the draft.

Oh to have nothing more important in life than to write a paper. Those were the days. Wish I could have stayed in college forever.

Shit I did, I payed my own way and went part-time college up until last year.. Graduated with a History degree at 30.. Saving up a few bucks before I start on my Masters degree..


It was a blast, hell the girl I am seeing now is only 22.. Of course it helps that I look about 5-8 years younger then I do..

It's no secret that you are a smart guy that can probably write a paper 10,000 times better than me...

And I'm even worse at writing a paper I have little interest in exploring, so you are probably exactly right.

And since it's not time to turn in my final portfolio, anything my professor doesn't like I'm sure he'll address.

I appreciate your concerns, though. I'll gladly let you write my next paper...I have no doubts you could graduate college, for me, over ChiefsPlanet...so if you're bored, let me know.

If I were you, I'd request an extension.

Anything that you slop together this late is going to be shit. Without time for revision, you're ****ing yourself.

While I agree with this, I also disagree. Some people write best under pressure. I seem to be one of those people. I have had papers accepted to conferences (as a speaker) that I wrote the night before the deadline. If you have ever had the joy of writing on topics such as the methodology of Darwin as influenced by Malthus, Lyell, Whewell, and Herschel (Philosophy of Biology), or how Cartesian thought was one of the biggest and most significant shifts in science, the night before it is due then you know my pain.

I'm a horrible student...I'd rather play video games/get ****ed up/post on ChiefsPlanet/do anything but what I'm suppose to do...but I'm pulling a 3.0 GPA (which is not something I'm proud of) so I do enough to get by.

I've been putting this particular assignment off for two months...the only way I'm getting it done before noon tomorrow is to take the easy way out.

I realize that it is my fault that I put things off, but I do not feel the need to until the last minute, not sure why that is. However, I typically am not playing video games (though I just played Fallout 3 for 4 days straight-- on break though), or drinking my brain away. Most times I am watching sports (football mostly), reading for pleasure, building something, or making something (I like making lamps...).

I also take adderall, daily, with a prescription due to my hyper-scanner brain (I find everything interesting and feel the need to scan everything I can read or gain knowledge from). I must say I have never once taken adderall and felt like I was floating, and I take strong doeses, and yes I have abused my dose a few times and taken 2 when I have finals or something... it should just make a person extrememly calm (when focusing on something), but extrememly actice, just like a person on coke would be active. I have tried both (sadly), and large amounts of adderall feel a lot like the white stuff.

Man, I've spent an assload of long nights writing papers and shit. Never took anything except caffine.

From what I have read and what doctors have told me, caffeine is worse for your body than most things. Of course I mean drinking 12 cups of coffee in a night, or something similar to that.

I love learning, and if the job market continues to get worse then I am fucked for a job when I graduate. I already am fucked due to my major (philosophy), but I went into it knowing that, but I always planned on teaching high school for a year (or two if I needed the money) then going back to either Law school (not big on this) or to a ph.d. program for Philosophy. Lately I have been pondering the idea of being a professional student.

I love architecture, and was about to go into that, but changed my mind last minute when I was 18, so I might enroll in school again for that (most likely with a scholarship or grant) and go to school for free, and possibly do that while attending grad school for sociology (which I may be able to get assistance and be paid for teaching some intro courses).

I have paid my own way, either with actual money, or loans (which are painful to think about), but they are in my name and I am going to be living with that for a while.

I'm serious with this.

If you want any help with a paper, just send me a PM, I'd be more than happy to take a break from arguing the draft to give it a look. I've taught comp classes for going on 4 years now.

I'd offer the same, but I'll probably be piss drunk less than 30 minutes from now. :D

Dude, in my 20th Century History class we all got assigned a year and had to write a 25-page thesis on the event in that year that most-shaped history.

I got 1963. Anybody remember what happened in November of 1963?

So yeah, I waited until the night before it was due and in a drug-induced haze wrote a paper about how the introduction of the birth control pill in 1963 changed history. ROFL

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking as I was reading this. On top of that, I'd be curious if Hootie would be capable of actually discussing these ideas if the professor decided to call him on it and discuss the ideas in the paper. The point of a research paper (or any paper) is to learn how to synthesize information and create something new not to toss in as many ideas or quotes from sources as possible. Anyway, my students are getting pretty far into their big research paper for the semester, so this was nice to witness. Puts me on guard (of course, my students can't do this, because they have to show me their research, write an annotated bib., and sit in on a panel discussion with other people with similar topics).

If you don't think I did any research over the things I discussed, you are mistaken. I've always done well on papers...I know for a fact NewPhin and Hamas could WITHOUT A DOUBT write a much better paper than me...

But if you compare me with the rest of my class, I think I'll do just fine. I'm not going to Harvard...Christ, I'm not even going to Illinois.

I have to admit that taking a pill that would increase my productivity on my research by 100% is pretty tempting.
And yet people hate athletes who do the same thing in sports. A world of hypocrisy.

I'm not dogging you, seriously, and my research writing skills are pretty damned rusty. I wouldn't take your bet on which of us would put together a better paper just now. Regardless, I just found the thread interesting because it showed me how someone could come to a message board or other online forum and put together a paper quickly.
