If only we could take America back to the days when we didnt produce 50% more lawyers then we actually needed.

Because the way to catch up with the rest of the world is to do the opposite of what they're doing.

Church-based rule? Have you not taken any basic History class?

Some food for thought.

The idea of the USA having too many lawyers and not enough engineers at the head of the country definitely is not a new one.

I thought this sounded familiar. Back in 2009 he was on the Tonight Show saying that students should study engineering and not investment banking.

Meh, Im an engineer and Im trying to do everything I can to get out of this cubicle hell.

Engineering majors are commonly the best paid.

But either way pay isn't about value it's about supply and demand.

Those are the same thing.

LOL. Yes let's lower the bar even more.


Med School Admission process>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Law School admission process

in terms of difficulty


Not exactly relevant. And depends substantially on your background. Medicine is a joke these days, with these doctors running around trying to do as many procedures and diagnostics as they can on every patient, tacking on new diagnoses to increase the complexity of medical decision making on paper, etc.

Increasing the number of doctors in this country will only increase healthcare costs in the long run when we have to take care of these people who get permanent disability because their minor injuries turn into chronic pain.

Engineers make the pie bigger, lawyers argue over how much of the pie everyone should eat.

Who cares what size the pie is if you get all of it.

Nuclear Engineering is where it's at.

It's worked out for Homer Simpson. He's had the same job since the 1990's.

It is true. The best way to do this is for ABC or NBC to create a show about engineers. Call it Chaos and Order.

They make shows about tow trucks and pawn shops. I think we can expect an engineering show.

No it isn't. If an engineer made his company a million dollars, but there are 4 doods waiting to take his place at a moments notice, he'd still get paid shit.

I did my part and went to school for engineering. There were no jobs in that (at least in my field), either. Everyone in my class either got jobs doing something else or went back to school after UG.

Can the other guys also make the company a million dollars? If so, the value is not in the engineer.

Let's not forget the show about Sarah Palin.

Perhaps the worst thing to come to TV since Direct-to-DVD Aladdin.
