As to the OP question: we'll never know, being too stupid to find out!

Well at least you learned something.

It's a misconception that university provides you with an education, you actually provide it yourself. Many of the finest minds never even attended lectures, and neither did some of the dullest.

Re: Why are people so stupid ?

A university degree simply means you have a good knowledge of that particular topic, most degrees have a shelf life as additional information becomes available so it becomes necessary for those who need their degree as part of their occupation to keep up to date with these changes.

In the past some obtained degrees and secured senior posts based on having that degree but failed to keep up with ongoing changes in that field thus holding others back, fortunately many jobs now require those with degrees to provide evidence their skills are up to a certain standard on a regular basis eg: medical & nursing staff.

Looking at some of the things now taking place in some universities it would seem the students are running the place and preventing those who oppose their views from speaking, add to that the amount of money you owe after completing a university course a more intellegent person might think university was not for them.

I've always liked one similar - 'the man who knows everything knows nothing'

Samuel Johnson I think, but he probably pinched it from someone else.

No, it means much more than that. In spite of the neoliberalisation of universities, and the government’s attempts to measure success by graduates’ future earnings, a degree is about much, much more than that.

It is about the ability to think independently and critically, and about assessing the relative value and reliability of different sources of information, and making truly informed choices. Which is exactly why more educated people were more likely to vote remain in the referendum.

Re: Why are people so stupid ?

@Anonymous I nearly gave you a like for your post there praising the degree qualification.. until i noticed right at the end that you were using it to continue posting remain drivel again. Please just drop it, you're unhealthily obsessed with the issue.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
