Oh yes because clearly everyone in every faculty except yours is going to end up as bus drivers, fuego. Are you really that ignorant or do you trawl these boards looking to pick fights because you have nothing better to do?

Anyone who is cocky enough to think that their program is the only one that will lead to success needs to remove their head from their ass, lest they fail to realize that there's more to the employment world than science. I don't mean to point fingers, I use it simply because it was a glaring omission from fuego's list.

fuego is probably one of those science students that is convinced they're going somewhere because they're going to go to med school... HA... you and 80% of the faculty... good luck

Hmmm...apparently all arts students are dummies. I really like the reasoning behind these oh-so-well-thought-out claims.

Yikes, I guess Foucault, Heidgger, Ignatieff, Boss...who else...uh...Eco...Durkheim, Marx, Pollock, Nietzsche (I'm trying to cover the gamut here)... etc., etc...yeah, they all must be idiots, too. Right! Sure, that makes sense. They didn't/don't primarily work in the realm of the "hard sciences", so, naturally, they're all IDIOTS! EUREKA!!!

Hmm...yeah, I guess the arts are totally useless. Right, right...I think people like Geertz or Leaky or Frazer MUST have been academic deadbeats since they didn't work in the realm of the mighty "equation". Wow, if it's not a natural science, then I apparently-according to some people on this board--it's not worth studying at all. Hmmm...I guess I may as well forget school since I'm in the arts. Yep, my job forcast is pure and total inauspicious skies and forever gloom. Damn...I'm toast.

Maybe I should take some math courses! Hell yeah! Let me employ some interesting reasoning here: poor, dolorous arts student takes math courses (or chemistry or physics), see the light, then increases his opportunity to earn loads of money 10 fold! Hells yeah! This is ridiculous...

...After having gone to the bathroom, I realised I left an "I" out of place.

Yep, you guess it, I AM an arts student! I is no proof-reading

You're being needlessly defensive. Everyone makes fun of everyone else's faculty for something; people make fun of us eng/science kids all the time for our supposed lack of social skills, geekiness, etc. Take a pill, and stop living the angsty arts kid stereotype; it's been done.

Hi crazies. I originally posted this "overheard" to make people smile....you are ruining all good things in this dark dark world.

You may have posted it 6:50 pm, but the story belongs to the both of us! If I do remember correctly, while the bus driver was responding to my inquiry, you were busy admiring the puffy vest you had just bought...which by the way is collecting dust somewhere in your closet....

Calm down child..nobody said all arts students are purpose lacking drifters who enroll in university because its the next logical step and thus become coffee shops dwellers nibbling on biscotties as they throw around names like Foucault and Durkheim and quote from Paradise Lost..ok maybe most are, but not all of them.

What the hell is the problem with quoting Paradise Lost? Have you read it??

Of course I have, I'm an english major! And that epic is loaded with prime quoating material. So there! *makes a silly face*

I like being a student. I get to ride my bike and be all new age and tree huggin' and NDP and soak my biscotti in my coffee at starbucks while I tap away on my laptop and listen to jack johnson on my ipod and order limited edition uggs on ebay and work at camp and smile dumbly in lecture halls cause "I's gettin' educated"....ahh yes tis the life..is it not? Fools!!!

Well put, 2:32 AM.

PS: How (or more importantly, why) did this post morph from smart-aleck bus drivers into people referencing or quoting Marx and Nietzsche and bashing each other's faculties? Isn't that what the forum is for?

Maybe I'll go start a topic.

um, i don't know if it works to be both new age, tree-hugging and ugg boot-wearing.
and jack johnston is kind of sucky.

umm..i think the post about being both tree hugging and ugg-boot wearing is that it doesn't work..as students we get to be blissfully hypocritical.

I gues Henry Miller just wasn't good with the ladies. No skills.

You'd think so, but he god laid all the time. As most men who are successful with the ladies will tell you, the key to getting women is to devalue them.
