I wouldn't say that I have it better or worse than you. You definitely seem to have a real problem. My degrees at least go towards the job I'm wanting and no one has threatened to kick me out yet. If all else fails, maybe you can join the military. It's what I'd do if I were able (too many required medicines). Despite me being the obvious least favorite in my family, somehow I'm behind my near whore, bitch of a sister who's never home and my brother who never wants to go anywhere with the family, at least the military medical benefits extend to me for another year and a half, by which point I definitely need a real job with medical benefits.

Hope I wasn't rambling. I just meant to say we both have our problems. I hope you manage to get the job you're looking for, and I hope things turn out well for you.

Driving a train does not elevate you to the snootiness that comes with being an engineer. It also does not afford you the right to tell everyone else that their major is worthless. Gotta take Differential Equations or Thermodynamics to do that.

I was thinking about becoming a business major and a major in one of the many fields of engineering, do I have to make fun of myself if I am an engineer for also being a business major? If so, how frequently must I belittle myself and to what extent? Would I need to make myself cry? Does it depend on what kind of engineer I am? Like if I just drive trains, does that still count?

Once a week oughtta do it. Crying is optional. I can't speak for the disciplines outside of Mechanical and Chemical (my friends and I), but discipline doesn't seem to matter. Driving trains does not count.

See, the International Financial Reporting Standards span 4542 pages of text, all with this much writing on them. Accounting isn't pretending to be math (although it has some mathematical factors, particularly when you're dealing with Group Statements, it's a nightmare to keep track of everything with those) , but it's also not a simple "Just know all the rules and follow them", you actually need critical thinking to be able to figure out what the hell to do with the information you're given in a scenario. I'm pointing this out because I know everyone that doesn't study it has severe misconceptions about what accounting is, since I also had those very same misconceptions up to a year and a half ago.

I never said accounting was easy, I'm just annoyed that it gets roped into math because it uses math. Math has no man-made rules. It is ruled by logic, and does not bend to our will.

Eh, some Commerce courses are pretty difficult. Like Accounting. It's hard as fuck. Like in our exam today, not a single person I spoke to afterwards (asked like 25+ people how they wrote) managed to even finish the paper. People often think Accounting is easy because they took it in school, but uni accounting is a totally different ballgame. My high school accounting average was 96%, I'm averaging about 60% now (50% is a pass here)

Accounting isn't real math. I'm not saying it's easy, I'm just saying it's following made-up rules to make the numbers say what you want to. I am sorry you have to deal with it. To be fair, I'm sure there's some hard business classes, but as an engineer, I'm contractually obligated to make fun of any and all business majors.

You do realize you can have a free market and still redistribute wealth among your citizens. If anything, we're proof of that.

Our max tax is 95% if I'm not much mistaken. Result is that we're one of the most equal countries in the world.

And your example is a country that was hit nowhere nearly as hard...

Which, somehow, proves that the US is richer than Europe because reasons that have nothing to do with massive amounts of resources, massive unused open territories, and not getting bombed to nothing twice in half a century..

Sure, your economical policies have given you a big boost, never mind that my country has more of an open market than yours, but now you're reaping the downside of it in the form of extreme inequality, ridiculous tuition rates and hospital bills.
#214 - proudnerd (05/19/2016) [-]
As an American, I can tell you tuition and health care aren't as big of a deal as you may think. I graduated recently without any student loans. It's hard to do, but if you get scholarships and have decent-paying jobs while you go to school, you can do it. As far a health care goes: get a decent job, and you have health care. My girlfriend who makes like $10 an hour has health care as an State-Tested Nursing Assistant, a program that take a month to complete and they are always in need of more. Sure, you have to clean up shit for a living, but you can get health care coverage from your job even if it's not a fancy four-year degree requiring job. You just have to not work a shitty minimum wage job designed for high school students.
And yes, the US could learn a thing or two from Denmark. The government should stop fucking with the market, and make it easier to start a business, like in Denmark. That's why it's the #1 best country to do business in according to Forbes. That means the government shouldn't be redistributing wealth and shouldn't be interfering with the market. The things you are suggesting are exactly why the US is slipping. We don't need more of it, we need less of it. www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2014/12/17/u-s-slides-again-as-denmark-tops-forbes-best-countries-for-business/#6f53f69759ce

Oh wow, you have cities full of niggers, that's almost the same as having to rebuild all your major cities when a large part of your workforce is either dead or disabled

And then doing the same thirty years later.

My point is that you can come back from literally being obliterated by a nuclear bomb better than socialist economic policies. But sure, blame the wars that your continent started over 70 years ago for your own economic fallacies, and not the economic policies.
Oh, and you still haven't provided an example of socialism being more successful than capitalism.
