Ew, Notre Dame. Well, if you want your daughter to suddenly think she's part of the fabulosity crowd and gain a delightful sense of entitlement, then by all means send her there. Oh, and as you will find out, they keep their students in the same dorm for the first three years. Drama, much?

Also, the priest who teaches one of the core, general-ed science classes tells his students that Muslims have high rates of forehead cancer from "banging their heads against the ground so many times a day" inducing cell trama. He never addressed the logical follow-up question regarding Catholics and knee cancer.

I know quite a few people from that school, as well as have a family member who certainly became a whole new person after attending there. For the money, you can do much better.

Mine isn't a qwerty board my KEYBOARD is in a V shape, it's also a German Keyboard. Apparently English is not yours either from what I surmise ... :rotflmao: It's OK, though, new ideas sometimes take longer for older folks to adopt ... :P

I went to school in Texas, Ohio and Europe, she will also go on to school in Europe. She got a full scholarship to attend there and for what she wants to do professionally it works for her. I just thank God, she didn't pick a school in California ... :P

Ah, I see; you surmised I was referring to your keyboard.

Excellent Germanic analysis, as usual. :rotflmao:

Well of course, why wouldn't you be speaking of my keyboard? Teutonic keyboards are superior in every way, in design, function and ease of use ... :P

I have to say, I love our little chats, but duty calls ... Have you noticed how GM senior positions are being filled by GME staff, perhaps GM will pull through it's near death experience after all ...

Anyway as they say in Winnie the Pooh, TTFN ... :)

But of course; it's only EVER about you. :wacko:

I don't make an incessant habit of assumptions about things I know nothing about.

Lil' quirk of mine; I'm working on it. :rotflmao:

This is the new, efficient way of making a quote. Takes up less bandwidth; it's more cyber-ecologically friendly.

It's OK, though, new ideas sometimes take longer for older folks to adopt ... :rotflmao:

Wait, this may be halfway back through the convo, but is PCS making fun of balthy for saying "typing" when referring to using a keyboard on a computer? Cuz I'm still in my 20's, and I've spent plenty of time around people younger than me, and I don't know anyone who calls it "keying". "Keying" is something you do to someone's car that you don't like, "typing" is what you do on a keyboard or cell phone when texting.

Yeah, the weather, recreational opportunities, insane amount of diversity, culture, and networking opportunities are all such massive drawbacks. I kick myself for it every morning. :rolleyes:
