Saw something recently on the tube about how this is turning into a really huge scam (er, industry). Lots of small private colleges on the edge of going broke are turning to these people that start heavily advertising the school and make the curriculum available over the net. Then charge a boatload of cash for the privilege.

Problem is they get a bunch of people with no money or academic interest and set them up with student loans which have little chance of being paid back in a reasonable time (if ever). The school gets their money, the student winds up with a lot of debt and quickly quits.

I guess the governments is starting to look into these schools but who knows if anything will ever be done.

And as the coup de grace of this little rant, in the liquor store last night I pass a bottle of rum with Ron Jeremy's picture on it. Yes, THAT Ron Jeremy. The label says "Ron de Jeremy". Why would anyone buy this?
I was walking through Soho a few months ago and was confronted by a life-size cut out of the fellow, standing in front of an exotic spirits shop. It was quite a shock, albeit a pleasant one. I'd get it for the novelty though if nothing else, except that it's probably be too expensive and I don't much care for rum anyway. Maybe he'll move into whisky (or more likely whiskey) next.

Some colleges/universities have fantastic, even world-famous reputations. But the closer you look, the less élite they are. Unless you mean financially and not academically élite

Oh, sorry Harvard et alia, I didn't know you were listening

Why why why

Britains sad state of edjukation

A High School near where I live & adjoining the Park.., The Worlds First Public Park , had recently redefined it's self as a 'Sports Academy' - I suspect purely to get around some red tape & be entitled to additional funding. This often means school sports are taking-up areas of the park for their own use, littering the place with crisp packets & the general inconvenience of not wishing to go near yoofs for fear of heckles of 'peado'

But calling itself a Sports Academy !? you should see the size of some of the crisp munching, soft drink chugging fatties

Of course their own playing fields were sold off 20 years ago

Default Citius, Altius, Forius...Vomitus?

Next up on the parade of the perplexing: competitive eating.

Who is the strongest, the fastest, the fairest, the most graceful? Yes, these are areas of human life that have bred competitive events since time immemorial, and certainly the traits which these competitions judge are traits that have value in the human society.

But competitive eating? Who can stuff their face with the most amount of food in the shortest period of time? Of what possible value is this skill to the human race? And what sort of admiration should we give to a person whose main achievement in life is that he can eat 68 frankfurters (with buns!) in 10 minutes?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joey_Chestnut

Even further, there apparently is a society devoted to preparing rules and issuing their official imprimatur on competitive eating events!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interna...etitive_Eating

The main rule apparently being that vomiting while competing results in an instant disqualification…

Any competition in which vomiting is a reasonably foreseeable outcome begs the question: why would I want to watch this?

Or to paraphrase the Olympics….

Citius, Altius, Fortius…Vomitus?

Why..why…why…

Why do we have to put up with horrendous American brats like Justin Bieber to Honey Boo Boo(Alana) on our television screens? We don't foist Jedward on them-although that might not be a bad idea-real payback that. These programmes that they make with these total non-entities are a waste of public money and because of satellite and the fact they are cheap to import we start getting kids in this country acting like that-where will it end? I might add I neither watch this Honey Boo Boo(IT appeared in a trailer for her dreadful programme on TLC) nor do I like Justin Bieber.

Even bigger puzzlement, Greenman...TLC is supposed to stand for "The Learning Channel".

Greenman, I hope you never get a whiff of 'Duck Dynasty'. Hopefully mercy has been taken on you and your fair countrymen, and y'all have been spared this abomination of American television.

You can actually feel your I.Q. drop when watching the show.

First let me thank you for blaming Justin Bieber on America. To be fair GB did inflict Adam Ant and The Spice Girls on the world.

My why,why,why rant concerns the local drug store. If it didn't say on the sign it was a drug store you would never guess it. Approximately a third of the floor space is taken up by cosmetics, shampoos, deodorants and the like. Another third to food and food related items. Of the remaining space most of it is for the 5 check out counters, of which only one is ever open, and digital items like cameras. No more than 5% of the total floor space is used for vitamins and drugs.
