won’t the average college grad feel ripped off?

I hope you laugh watching this clip, but honestly, isn’t he right?  It’s been about eight years since I’ve gotten my BA and, quite frankly, I really only remember the stuff tied to my major and two masters’ degrees.

That is so funny because of the extent to which it is true.

But that is the sad part too.

Why did I need to learn twos complement arithmetic?  What did that have to do with computers.  Yeah the people that designe the chips to do the math may need it but it is really so easy it coud be left out and people that need it can learn it then.

And then stuff you could use they never suggested.  How many people would not have taken on mortgages they couldn’t handle if they had known accounting?
