I m pleased to hear that, but you would be at the post of a teacher in that college, isn't it?

Well, here in India, we need to have "special" bachelor's degrees to get the teaching jobs in government colleges. Diplomas are futile unless you have some "contacts"! I am happy that it is so easy to get a job in US You won't get anything exciting for that Diploma here in India (unless you have some contacts)!

Thumbs down New year sometimes means new annoying crap

Well already this year has gone off to an annoying start. Comedy Central decided to introduce their new logo, and it just fscking SUCKS!

Original great the way it was:
Attachment 5740

New dumb looking one:
Attachment 5741

So they fixed something and completely borked it.

Kenny Strawn, you're in Orange County? Like the TV show? Why didn't you do it with Micha Barton on New Years Eve? Would have made you happier!

You said you like the show, right? I thought you were referring to the tv show Orange County Choppers.

So why did you drop out of high school leopard? What made you deserve a dropout? No one does.

Actually, even more confuse OC in California with OC in Florida than anything else (seeing as though both counties are almost identical and both have Disney parks in them).

I hope 2011 goes well for you, sounds like it you have it worse than me. Donno how much Linux knowledge you have, can't you get work there?

But I'd also like to know - why'd you drop out?

College is not out of reach, you can always transfer into a uni. through community college.
