Marginalizing Middle-Of-Nowhere Colleges

Like Middlebury, my brother's alma mater:



Dork - This was pretty much the best weekend I've had in a while. (2 min 15 sec)

I went to school in the CITY OF PHILADELPHIA. No one played video games. No one played drinking games (we went to bars). AND, no one played made-up games from children's movies like Quidditch (Harry Potter).

Extending childhood for 22 years is a gross distortion of human nature.

It's no wonder some people never, ever grow up.



I say send the children back to the coal mines!

"Extending childhood for 22 years is a gross distortion of human nature."

Almost precisely the words I recently spoke to my oldest who is two semesters from her BA and said she wanted to get her Masters simply because she isn't ready to join the working (adult) world.

Sometimes not only do I think the child labor laws should be repealed, but parents should be able to "abort" their children at any time prior to age 18.

slow,

My brother said there were a bunch of Colorado type kids in his freshmen dorm at Middlebury who were *underwhelmed* by the skiing.

fcb,

There is a state (Kansas?) now where people are legally allowed to drop off and abandon their kids.

C:

That state was Nebraska before we modified the statue recently. Now we only accept children under age 30 days. Google Nebraska Save Haven to review . . .
