    So I just got this old mini PC. Something like 128 RAM, but it's the size of a VCR. I'm thinking it's going in the bedroom as a cheap media box.

    It just really sucks that I want to continue my studies at the school I currently attend and do reasonably well in and it's just ridiculous how small the department is. Grumble

    You would think but then people tell you that women who want an abortion should be forced to use wire hangers because they deserve the consequences of such.

    One of the books we had to read in my Japanese history class began with a woman who aborted her fourth child because there was a famine on. She used a stick. Got an infection and died, and then her youngest (who was still breastfeeding) died a couple of months later from malnutrition. The rest of the book was about her son growing up and dealing with his father's misery, loneliness, and crippling poverty (and a running sub-plot about his sister trying to get out from under the father's thumb).

    Then at the end we found out it was a true story. It was not an uplifting book.

    as far as i know, in Canada, everyone has to do an MA before they can do a PhD, unless they do a combined program (which is becoming very popular)

    school also costs less than a happy meal

    Like 256, or should I not bother unless I can work out 512? I'm sure I could get a used mobo and just keep the nice little case, but that sort of defeats the purpose of 'hey free computer can bring movies to mah bedroom'.

    Podly, do a Fulbright and go to Germany for a year. It's still hard to get, but not nearly as hard as getting into a solid PhD program fresh out of undergrad and will give you something spiffy to put on your application.

    teaching, ethics (huge application), research, logic (making you a logician)

    people who do grad degrees usually end up doing teaching and research, or getting some kind of heady consulting position for the government or a company in some capacity (usually ethics to be fair).

    people who do undergrad philosophy degrees generally end up doing HR, administration, educational support staff, teachers, etc

    many will go on to get supplementary education for a vocation, and having two degrees gives them a leg up. most of them will be able to write well, meaning they have valuable work skills that many lack.

    teacher's college is required to teach high school and elementary school, so they often do that.

    There is one God, and many angels. Fallen angels are called demons. Angels and demons can take any shape they wish. There is a hierarchy of angels biased on how powerful God created them. This is what I believe, no more and no less.
