    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

    i wasn't aware that a happy meal cost over 6000 dollars (per year) in the US :P

    i was aware that tuition is absolutely fucking ridiculous down there, usually in the tens of thousands for a decent school, right?

    my girlfriend has 20 000 in student loans after finishing her first undergrad, and that's fairly average for someone who didn't have lots of scholarships or parents who could pay for it

    I'm already 40k in the hole, and I've still got another year to go.

    What are you going to do with your degree btw?

    He's going to grad school and he's going to be a professor of philosophy, most likely.

    I assumed but I wanted to verify. Thank ye.

    Not only that, the two letters that are different are separated from mine by only 2 other letters.

    It is no coincidence you are reading this PM, or chose that name, or that the letters are separated by the number 2.

    It all makes sense now. What do you think, bro

    There are space concerns with mini PCs, so you need specialized motherboards and video cards, but nearly everything else is small enough where you can use normal components. For example you're not using a mobile Intel processor, you can stick a Core 2 Quad in there and it'll work fine.

    Ooo, quad core.

    Sometime in the next few years, I want a semi-powerful little mobile computer for doing location audio recording. For some reason, I don't entirely trust laptops. If a mini PC could do the job, I wouldn't mind getting one/putting one together.

    It would probably be a fun little project.

    I believe some people even build them with LAN gaming in mind because of their portability in comparison to full-sized desktop machines.

    You can always do both.

    Or have your students suck your dick in return for coke. Or vice versa.

    Or just get coke from your students.

    Everyone: "Okay" (does this all the time)
