11/30   God, I'm getting sick and tired of applying to hot company XYZ, being
        led on, then turned away because of my lack of a degree (unavoidable),
        then being contacted to see if I want to interview at hot company XYZ
        because I'm what they're looking for. What the fuck, Silicon Valley,
        what the fuck.
        \_ Just wait until you get a job and update your linkedin profile. Then
           the recruiters will be banging down your doors.
        \_ Go get your degree. It's not unavoidable that you don't have one.
        \_ Why the fuck are you looking for a job if you don't have a degree?
           What the fuck, degreeless man, what the fuck. I agree with people
           that a degree is just a piece of paper, and that what you learn
           in academia don't have a lot of correlation with what you'll actually
           do at work. Trade-school or professional school is a different
           story but most of us went to Cal! Having that said, employment
           for DA BOSS usually requires a degree. DA BOSS wants to make sure
           that you know how to follow directions and a high GPA correlates
           well w/high obedience and high tolerance for pain, skill sets that
           are quite essential in corporations. Now, if you don't have a
           degree, consider working for yourself. Some of the most famous
           entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs don't have or even
           care about degrees.
           \_ Not all of us have rich parents who will pay for us to go to
              school. Especially with the new bump up in tuition, the UC is
              out of reach of anyone who has to self-fund. Also, sometimes
              family obligations trump the luxury of attending school.
              family obligations trump the luxury of attending school. -!OP
              \_ God gives you lemons, and you make lemonade. Don't
                 whine, do something about it.
              \_ Work a full-time job during the day and take evening classes
                 towards a degree.
                 \_ Look up at the initial post that started this thread...
                    \_ The initial post didn't say why OP can't take evening
                       classes towards a degree.
           \_ Because my family is bankrupt and just about in foreclosure,
              jackass. -OP
              \_ in third world countries, if your parents go bankrupt they
                 go after everyone in the family. In the US, they go after...
                 the person who declared bankruptcy. Are YOU the person
                 who is in bankruptcy? I'm not trying to be a jackass, I'm
                 just trying to understand your situation and see if there
                 are other ways of looking at this. Please help me help you.

11/30   Tiger likes them white.
        \_ You misspelled "white-hot crazy."
           \_ What is crazy about being mad that your spouse is cheating on
           With a woman like that, who doesn't like them white? HOT HOT HOT
        \_ So does OJ.
        \_ Tiger's Prenup: (
           Not the ordinary "If you divorce me you get nothing" kind of prenup.
