How About We NOT Nuke the Danes

So after Trump accused Cruz of cheating and stealing Iowa from him Cruz struck back:

cruzdenmarktweet

Now I know we're all down on the Scandis and are thinking sure why not nuke'em - they're Scandis after all and it's important that President Trump show the world he means business. But allow me to make the case for why the Danes shouldn't be nuked.

I work with a lot of Danes and yes they've absorbed far too much of PC pieties, have a solid dose of European unearned smugness, and are prone to the usual Scandi tendencies (the Laws of Jante have more sway than the Danes like to admit) . But all that being said they're by and large decent, moral people. And they're also very, very much into being Danish and Danish nationalism though they tend to be quiet and discreet about it. The Danes like being Danish and doing Danish things. And are happy about it.

They also know they are a small vulnerable country and therefore don't have the luxury of being careless like Sweden, Norway, Germany, etc. when it comes to maintaining their national identity. That's why they've been so forceful and determined from the start to keep the recent waves of immigrants out of their country. And PC pieties aside if it came down to it, I believe they would fight and do whatever is necessary to maintain their existence.

Further reasons:

1. Denmark is a pork-based society. There are more pigs than people in Denmark and they're one of the largest producers of pork in the world. They're also the largest consumers of pork per person in the world. Also: Danish bacon.

2. Alone among European countries in WWII the Danes saved nearly all of their Jews and rejected the Nazi's anti-Jewish policies.

3. Danish pastries.

4. They're still fighting the good fight and resisting new occupiers: Danish City Makes Pork Mandatory on all City Menus in Backlash Against Muslim-Friendly Pork-Free Menus. As WeaponsMan says, Danes Eat Pork: Deal With It.

So in conclusion: the Danes should not be nuked.

RSM on the Epic Trolling of @RooshV

  • Question 1: If feminists say pick-up artists hate women - for this is what "misogyny" means - isn't it fair to assume that Bill Clinton is also a woman-hater?
  • Question 2: If men who repeatedly succeed in seduction are condemned by feminists, does this condemnation not also apply, by an obverse principle, to promiscuous women whose behavior justifies the boasts of PUAs?

So men who seduce women are bad, bad, bad and also rapists. But women who seduce men are merely affirming their natural feminine sexual freedom and fighting back against the patriarchal mores of our culture. Got it.

Also see reference to HST and Kazika, The Mad Jap.

If You Major in STEM, It Doesn't Matter Where You Go to College

We find no statistically significant differences in average earnings for science majors between selective schools and either midtier or less-selective schools. Likewise, there's no significant earnings difference between engineering graduates from selective and less-selective colleges, and only a marginally significant difference between selective and midtier colleges.

.That said, the earnings picture is very different for other fields. Outside of STEM, it matters tremendously where a student receives a degree.

Well even a chemical engineering graduate from West Podunk State University almost certainly knows something and has some skills. Not so much for a WPSU sociology or business major.

The Atlantic: Why Do Americans Work So Hard?

How will we all keep busy when we only have to work 15 hours a week? That was the question that worried the economist John Maynard Keynes when he wrote his short essay "Economic Possibilities for Our Grandchildren" in 1930. Over the next century, he predicted, the economy would become so productive that people would barely need to work at all.

Well the writers propose several reasons but they all overlook two key factors: American society is very competitive and Americans by nature are aspirational.

Now if American companies only had to meet 1930 levels of production and product features and if Americans were satisfied with living a 1930s quality of life, then yes the 4-6 fold increase in productivity would mean that a 15-20 hour workweek is all that is needed. But neither is true.

Business is competitive and it only takes a slight edge to eventually squeeze out the competition and likewise people's compensation tends to be based on performance relative to peers and other companies' workers rather than absolute performance. So you can get ahead by working just a little harder and longer and being just a bit more productive. And most Americans want to get ahead.

The prosperity Keynes predicted is here. After all, the economy as a whole has grown even more brilliantly than he expected. But for most Americans, that prosperity is nowhere to be seen-and, as a result, neither are those shorter workweeks.

Actually the prosperity is all around us - from the heated, electrified multi-thousand square feet house you're living in to the variety of cheap, fresh food available year-round to the magical display device you're reading this on to your reliable, safe automobile in the driveway to the twenty years on average of extra life we all enjoy. I think a 1930s American would have been willing to work even 70-80 hours a week to live our future royal lifestyle. In a sense we're getting off easy with only 40.

Why The NFA Gun Laws Make No Damn Sense

As was discussed last night it's hard to make sense of NFA laws since they don't follow the normal rules of logic. For example it's perfectly legal to buy a pistol or revolver - and even build it up into a rifle by adding a long barrel and then a stock. But if you take a rifle or shotgun and remove the stock and cut the barrel down to pistol-length, you just committed a 10 years in pound-me-in-the-ass federal prison plus a $10,000 fine federal offense.

Thus in the case of AR-15 pistols you can have two completely identical guns but with one being fully legal while the other is a major NFA violation - all depending on the initial state of the receiver (pistol vs rifle) and how it was built up.

So why are these laws so crazy and illogical? Well the answer is that the 1934 NFA laws are actually the inconsistent remnants of the very first attempt to effectively ban handguns:

The National firearms act of 1934 originally lumped in handguns with full auto firearms.  It is clear that the Roosevelt administration wanted to subject pistols and revolvers to the same draconian regulations and taxes that machine guns were finally subjected to.   Congress simply would not go along.  It was a step too far for even the heavily Democrat Congress of 1934.

Once you understand that licensing of handguns to the point of prohibition was the major target of the legislation, the reason for including short barreled rifles and shotguns becomes clear.    What is the point of banning handguns if any person can buy a rifle or shotgun, a hacksaw, and make a functional pistol in fifteen minutes from that rifle or shotgun?

So with handguns essentially banned it also makes sense to ban/regulate any other guns modified into handgun-ish forms as well. Except that handguns weren't banned which leaves us with the illogical mess of laws we have today.

Steve Martin on Does God Exist?

From an 1998 essay in The New Yorker:

Does God exist? This ancient question just won't go away. Since human history began, as soon as someone thought he had the answer, someone else came along to challenge it. The question endures, and now rests in the ether, waiting to spring on college students, retreating after the age of thirty, surfacing for the odd cocktail party, and reemerging with full force in the "philosophical years." But before we discuss this complicated question, let me introduce myself. I'm Toby, the talking horse.

Being a talking horse leaves me with plenty of time to ponder these big issues. No one rides me, because I just tell them to get off. So there's a lot of standing time. Sometimes I sing at night, to pass the hours; sometimes I court the little beauty in the next pasture, Lily. Sometimes I develop powers, which is fun. In fact, right now you are not reading this; you only think you are. You are actually calling your bank by Touch-Tone phone and transferring all your money to my account.

Mostly, though, I do anagrams in my head, like many other horses. When you see a horse standing in a field staring at you, he's really rearranging letters in his head: "tide, diet, edit. ..." It's a horsy thing to do. So the first thing I do with a question as big as the one we're talking about is pass it through my head and rearrange the letters. "Does ... odes ... " Not much there. Then there's the obvious "god ... dog," and the fruitless "exist." Engaging in this little neurotic exercise enables me to move on to the next step.

Ask yourself this: Do I really need to know the answer to this question? I think if you are honest with yourself, you will realize that a yea-or-neigh answer wouldn't really change your life much. Although a neigh might free up a lot of time now spent worshipping. In fact, I don't imagine God is really keen on worshipping. You can take it from me, Toby the talking horse - he's as humble as the next God, and a simple thank-you is all that's required.

That lovely young lass in the corn field, if she is hunting migratory waterfowl needs better camo.

And on the hours of labor per week. IF we set the minimum wage to one million dollars an hour, you only have to work one hour a year to be a millionaire.

But if someone else works two hours a year that person will have twice as much as you. And if someone works eight hours a day, why that person would be wealth beyond calculation, and the person who works 12 hour days, seven days a week, well, you can see the progression.

By the way, Keynes' book 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money' can loosely be described as 'stud piles'.

33 As much as I'd hate to see so many worthy gun retailers go out of business as a result, I'd love to repeal all the .fed gun laws, all the way back to NFA 34.

I doubt though that we'd see our local hardware store carrying Guns & Ammo the way it was in the olde days. But that's only because of the big box stores muscling out all the smaller, less efficient individual nuts n' bolts emporiums, much less the good, but lesser chains like Western Auto.

Remember you could buy guns with the Western Auto name stamped thereon? And Montomery Wards (Western Field), Sears (Ted Williams) and so many others.

But it would be cool if Target had a gun department. You could buy a Target pistol, there.

Dial This Number Next Time You Get a Telemarketing Call, Then Watch Chaos Reign

The Jolly Roger bot, designed to lead telemarketers down a rhetorical maze to keep them busy until they're at their wits' end while you go on about your day.

Next time someone calls you for sales purposes, simply tap "add call." Dial 214-666-4321. Merge the calls. Then the Jolly Roger Telephone Co., a voice recording that will frustrate and confuse that telemarketer, will take over.

The robotic script is designed to trick someone into trying to engage it for as long as possible. Along with affirmatives like "yes" and a curious "OK," it mixes in questions like "Sorry, could you start over? Who's this? Why are you calling?" It also goes off on entire tangents and distractions, leading annoyed salespeople to try and find lucidity and understanding in a totally lifeless recording.

69 Had a good, interesting day today.

After several months of not being able to go, and in the hope it wouldn't mess up my diet, I went back to my fave cajun restaurant in Orange County today, Ritter's Steam Kettle Cooking.

I had their bouillebaise, which is tomato/leek/saffron soup loaded with crab, shrimp, clams, and whitefish, heat level 7 (out of 10). Very tasty although now I'm dealing with some nasty heartburn.

And... I got to meet and talk with Chef Ritter himself. Really nice guy. He has 3 locations thus far and hopes to have another 3 open within a year. I mentioned to him that I'd love to see him add fried chicken to his menu, but he made the very good point that he just couldn't do it without having to make so many changes, the quality of his food would go down.

2. Alone among European countries in WWII the Danes saved nearly all of their Jews and rejected the Nazi's anti-Jewish policies.







Nope. Not the only European nation. Finland told the Nazis to fuck off when they began pressuring the Finns to hand over their Jews. In one case, a Finn bureaucrat handed over a handful against official government policy (less than 10, if memory serves) and the Finns freaked out in protest. Nearly brought down the government.

Now I realize the guy was on disability, scraping some cash off the top, and selling weed. But, damn that was good food for a 9 year old white boy.

161 Oh, and if you go to bed with someone you just met in a pick up bar, no, he will not respect you in the morning. I had a friend who would do that. She started realizing that they weren't calling her again. So, did she stop going to bed with someone she just met in a bar. Nope. She would leave a comb or lipstick behind so she had an excuse to call him. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

Point is. It's not the guy's fault if you're dumb.

185 National Enquirer: OJ Simpson Was Bill Cosby's Drug Connection; Nicole Brown Simpson Claimed That Bill Cosby Once Date-Raped Her

-----

[]i]O.J. Simpson and Bill Cosby are twin devils!

Years before O.J.'s ex Nicole Brown was brutally slain in 1994, she confessed he'd once brutally "date raped" her.

Now, The National ENQUIRER has learned the imprisoned ex-football star supplied Quaaludes to his pal Cosby, who's confessed to giving women the drug for sexual encounters!

Maet, I think you read it wrong. The piece is saying that OJ once date-raped Nicole and also that OJ supplied Cosby. If they were really saying Cosby raped Nicole, they would have been unambiguous about it.

I was a member of the South Carolina Unorganized Militia; and was issued an M-14. It could have been a SAW; and would be if the liberals went down that path. I was NOT a resident of SC either, I was paying out of state institution.

Every red state would start something similar. And, in the process invalidate NFA34 -- because the State CAN issue you a machine gun AND grenades. The fact you made a generous donation to the State coffers not withstanding.

That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
The weary, way-worn wanderer bore
To his own native shore.

On desperate seas long wont to roam,
Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
To the glory that was Greece,
And the grandeur that was Rome.

Lo! in yon brilliant window-niche
How statue-like I see thee stand,
The agate lamp within thy hand!
Ah, Psyche, from the regions which
Are Holy-Land!

One in the running would probably be Farrah Fawcett, and that famous poster from the 70s. I remember that one well. Of course, I didn't hit puberty until somewhere around '79 - '80 or so, but I do remember that iconic poster.

A Jong for Jeff

"My Ride's Here"

I was staying at the Marriott
With Jesus and John Wayne
I was waiting for a chariot
They were waiting for a train
The sky was full of carrion
"I'll take the mazuma"
Said Jesus to Marion
"That's the 3:10 to Yuma
My ride's here..."

The Houston sky was changeless
We galloped through bluebonnets
I was wrestling with an angel
You were working on a sonnet
You said, "I believe the seraphim
Will gather up my pinto
And carry us away, Jim
Across the San Jacinto
My ride's here..."

Shelley and Keats were out in the street
And even Lord Byron was leaving for Greece
While back at the Hilton, last but not least
Milton was holding his sides
Saying, "You bravos had better be
ready to fight
Or we'll never get out of East Texas tonight
The trail is long and the river is wide
And my ride's here"

I was staying at the Westin
I was playing to a draw
When in walked Charlton Heston
With the Tablets of the Law
He said, "It's still the Greatest Story"
I said, "Man, I'd like to stay
But I'm bound for glory
I'm on my way
My ride's here..."

At first I thought it had to be someone in the internet age, because we are surrounded by images today like never before. But on second thought, no, there are so many different options to choose from today.

The Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth pinups from the 40s would be good candidates, but as someone said, the total population was much smaller then.

So I'm zeroing in on the 70s and 80s, when mass-market cheesecake/swimsuit/centerfolds were at their zenith, before the internet allowed for fragmentation and niche interests.

Farrah Fawcett is as good a guess as any. That poster was *everywhere* in the late 70s. Although she didn't particularly float my boat.

rickl, the liberal love affair with the militia clause is silly. If
they somehow packed the Court and passed some law restricting ownership
to militia members -- then guess what -- we'd all join State militias. I
was a member of the South Carolina Unorganized Militia; and was issued
an M-14. It could have been a SAW; and would be if the liberals went
down that path. I was NOT a resident of SC either, I was paying out of
state institution.



Every red state would start something similar. And, in the process
invalidate NFA34 -- because the State CAN issue you a machine gun AND
grenades. The fact you made a generous donation to the State coffers
not withstanding.

Heather Locklear would be another good guess. It would logically be someone from the period where there was heavy media saturation concentrated on very few networks. Too much earlier, and it'd only be people who saw the movie; too much later and the amount of chicken-choking would start to get divided over too many media sources.

335 so which would be a better art project?

a performance art project of a guy masterbating his man juice onto the page of the Koran where Mohamed did sex to his 9yo wife?

or?

using Korans for the soles of your boots?

or?

Sending Kleenex with Koran passages written on each sheet so those German 13 year olds can stuff their bra's with?


??

Koran dipped in urine? elephant dung?

So 1.9 quarts per year, about half a gallon. So, over your lifetime, you're gonna be filling a few 5 gallon buckets up.

More if you're into "Semenax" and similar "volume enhancement" products (whether they work or not, I don't know, wouldn't bet on it).

Consider the following exercise. The average male ejaculate volume is
about 3-5 ml. Now, figure, over your lifetime from puberty to date, how
many times you've shot that lovin' spoonful. Add it up. You'll likely be
impressed.

Now, that suggests a masturbatory measure for above.
How much spooge, per man on average, does a particular babe induce. Or
what it the total volume all together of everybody she provoked.

Had to drive all the way from AJ to Phoenix to get it from a plastics dealer. But it got the job done. And the RH lens had a reflectorized overlay missing. So I looked in a box of miscellaneous parts that came with the car, and there was the missing piece! Amazing, so rarely that happens. Glued it on, and both lenses look pretty good. Cracks are still visible if you look close, but no holes, or pieces missing.


And I went through the crappy Lucas lamp sockets, and soldered a ground wire onto each and every one, and brought the ground wires back to the ground bus in the harness, and soldered them to that. 4 bulbs on each side, 8 ground wires in total. But now all the rear lamps work, save for the two on the right side which had dead bulbs, but I bought some new bulbs this evening, so tomorrow that will be fixed. Easy work, physically speaking, but time consuming.

A whole crapton of CA water wells went dry last summer, and if the equipment is just sitting there, it maybe could get used for extending 250 foot water wells that ran dry to 750 feet.

I am having fun with it. Yesterday I disassembled the rear brakes, freed up the stuck adjusters, and lubricated the surfaces on which the wheel cylinder slides (to center the shoes in the drum, and to allow the hand brake to work). I was sitting on a concrete floor, and despite using a chair cushion to sit on, my back was sure sore last night! Much better today; I did most of the work seated on a milk crate.

Yes, you could do it. Probably run you $50000 for that extra 500 feet, though. Get er done in about one day, and a day each to rig up and tear out. A double, triple or even a super-single rig would be massive overkill for deepening a water well. A service rig would be more appropriate; just a little bigger than your average water-well rig.


When I was working in Edson, we had water wells, several per location, to supply frac water to storage ponds. They drilled the water wells with, wait for it, water well rigs. Horses for courses.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at February 04, 2016 01:56 AM (Z8fuk)

411 Oh, forgot to mention. Extending a 250 foot well to 750 feet is no guarantee of getting good water. The aquifer might not go that deep; could be dry below, or worse, salt water.

Saw an article today about a lot of rigs sitting in lots because they
weren't economical with $30 oil. Can they be used for water wells? A
whole crapton of CA water wells went dry last summer, and if the
equipment is just sitting there, it maybe could get used for extending
250 foot water wells that ran dry to 750 feet.



Posted by: cthulhu at February 04, 2016 01:47 AM (EzgxV)





Yes, you could do it. Probably run you $50000 for that extra 500
feet, though. Get er done in about one day, and a day each to rig up and
tear out. A double, triple or even a super-single rig would be massive
overkill for deepening a water well. A service rig would be more
appropriate; just a little bigger than your average water-well rig.





When I was working in Edson, we had water wells, several per
location, to supply frac water to storage ponds. They drilled the water
wells with, wait for it, water well rigs. Horses for courses.

Well, my New Year's thing this year was to try and get all the stuff I'm doing under control. Being a CPA, I'm making forms and developing processes -- but I'm trying to write stuff down so I don't get buried in interruptions of interruptions. It's starting to bite and ensure things happen -- but I still haven't recorded 90% of what I'm expected to do.

Of course, being the humorist I am, the forms for keeping track of projects are labelled "Task Performance Sheet" across the top....so I'm filing "TPS reports"....

I've got pretty close to 200 so far. If one is blocked, it has a post-it to say what blocks it. Some have attached stuff, some have reminders, some have notes about being partially done.

It's the same sort of thing that I have used to get out-of-control businesses under control.

418 I remember the well wars years ago during a particularly bad dry spell. There were some neighbors, a couple of them right to close together, both with wells somewhat close together.

One well went dry. That fellow got a well digger in and they tried some stuff and eventually punched it deeper. He got water again.

But, the other close-by well then immediately went dry. He did the same thing, drilling deeper. The first well then went dry again.

At that point, they were about ready to start shooting. I think the solution was, at split cost between them, to drill the one a new well as far as away as possible, which fixed the problem. Once the dry spell was over, no problem again and both original wells were fine.

Again, boom-and-bust cycles are driven by malinvestment during the booms. Things that had every indication of being good ideas at the time but were undercut by subsequent events. These things must be ruthlessly repurposed and their debt ruthlessly written-off to market levels before we can have real recovery.

Posted by: Gmac - Waiting on Colombus #two weeks my aching ass and screw Soothie, he asked for it at February 04, 2016 03:34 AM (4pjhs)

426 You're looking at a social engineering genius.

I needed to find out the email address of a high-falutin' mucky-muck in a prestigious publication, because I wanted to pitch a story idea to that person directly.

Y'see, in every media organization, at the top echelon there are softies -- bubble-world coddled editors who their entire careers have been surrounded by their friends and clique-ish colleagues, and the default answer for any story idea coming from this inner circle is "Sure -- sounds good!" 'Cause everybody's on the same team and are all good chums.

But the organization can't let such softies come into direct contact with the public, because then every wannabe gatecrasher will pitch them ideas and the softies will be handing out "Yes"es like a big fool and suddenly the inner circle is too crowded with hoi polloi newcomers.

So inevitably -- in every single media organization -- there evolves phalanxes of lesser editors and interns whose entire jobs are to say "No" to any random wannabe writer who has the gall to pitch an idea to the publication. There are often more than one layer of "No men" (well, "No women" is more accurate), so that even if you somehow get through the first line of defense, you get mowed down by the second line.

I'm been in the writing trenches long enough to know the brutal reality of getting published: It's usually not how good you are, but who you know.

But if you're not part of the limousine liberal elite, it's hard to break in to the clique. So you have to be creative -- which I am.

Currently I have about six literary identities, all running simultaneously, so I'm managing six different writing careers at once. Works out pretty well -- when one of them has a dry spell, the others pick up the slack.

"Zombie" -- my "political" identity -- is only one of them. I've got various nonpolitical identities as well.

But a special identity I launched a year or two ago is one I pay special attention to: It's a semi-political writer identity that is NOT a self-confessed self-outed conservative. In other words, I'm passing as a moonbat, or at least as someone who plays along with the de rigueur progressive schtick.

Ah, but the key is this: I slip in paradigm-changing conservatarian ideas, posing as "counter-intuitive" liberal thought. And it really infiltrates the psyche of leftist readers, because they are in "internalization mode" when reading words which they think are penned by a fellow traveler. When a leftist, conversely, reads words he knows to be by a conservative, he unconsciously puts on his "rebuttal filter" and automatically rejects the premise of everything he reads, and struggles to find a rebuttal for all points, if even merely to protect his own worldview.

Anyway, I've been carefully shepherding along this particular identity, building up a resume and reputation little by little, leapfrogging ever upward on the publication-prestige ladder.

So recently I came up with a really good story idea that would be a perfect fit for a pretty prestigious publication -- AND it would be a situation where I could slip in some sneaky concepts that would accelerate the corrosion of my readers' progressive ideology.

Problem is, this particular publication is so prestigious that they have probably three layers of rude Rejectors to keep people like me out.

My goal: to get past those Rejectors to the softie at the heart of every publication.

I spent how long researching how to do this? THREE WEEKS. Seriously.

I compiled a complete list of the entire editorial staff (that was quite the project in and of itself) and then spent days and days delving into their publicly accessible publishing history, and trying to pinpoint exactly what their role was at this publication (regardless of what their job title may have been).

After many many days I figured out who was likely to be the softest touch amongst those on staff who had top-level veto (or anti-veto) power.

Now here's the hardest part: The more prestigious the publication, the more difficult they make it to find the email addresses of those truly in charge. In fact, in most cases they make it flat-out impossible -- they NEVER publish the actual email addresses of the important decision-makers. Instead, the only publicize the addresses of the Rejectors.

So my goal became to find the personal email address of that softie. Except, as I realized after two days of searching, it simply does not exist online. Period.

And so, it was time to uncork my secret weapon: Social engineering.

First I reverse-figured the general format of the emails at this organization, which actually changes as you ascend the ranks. Low-level employees are firstname.lastname@company.com. But upper management level are firstname.[first-initial-only-of-last-name]@company.com. And finally, the holy grail, I found out, was that the toppermost bosses had [first-nickname-only]@company.com

With this info I figured out what the softie's email address ought to be, based on their ranking.

Next step: identify the stupidest, most naive newbie at the lowest level in the organization.

To achieve this, I just called up random people at random numbers all over the office and simply asked to be transferred to other random people, at each step noting down the apparent stupidity of each person I was talking to. Eventually, I identified the one person I thought was the crown idiot of the whole office.

So, with extreme cavalier nonchalance, this morning I called up the idiot, and said offhandedly, "Oh, I was trying to reach [top-echelon softie editor] -- but maybe you can help me. She asked me to send her an email, but is she still using nickname@company.com like before?"

The idiot, in all her idiocy (exactly as I had hoped) replied, "Oh, no, she now uses abc@def.com for internal communications."

Me: "Oh, that's right, I forgot. Thanks!" and hung up.

Bingo!

So then, having long ago prepared my pitch and honed it to perfection, I immediately sent it to the secret email address of the top softie, acting vaguely overly familiar like we had long been acquaintances (even though I had never interacted with her before).

Result?

15 minutes later she replied, saying "Yes," and accepting my pitch for publication.

Boom.

Now, I just write a killer article, and I'm on the inner track at this publication.

For me, this is big news. This is a pretty prestigious media outlet. It's known to be nearly IMPOSSIBLE to break into it. The only way is to know someone who already writes for them who recommends you to the publisher at a cocktail party. But with extreme diligence, I crashed the gates.

455 "If You Major in STEM, It Doesn't Matter Where You Go to College"

The difference is in the jobs you get AFTER you graduate. For a STEM major, you are expected to actually be able to accomplish something. For non-STEM majors, you generally are not.

So, for non-STEM your career is largely dependent on who you are, and more importantly, who you know. Which is really all elite schools are about - creating that peer-group for the socially acceptable in-crowd.

My company learned about a decade ago to NEVER hire an Ivy League graduate. We won't even interview one anymore. Waste of time. Once hired they 1) are shocked to discover they are expected to actually produce, and 2) They move on as soon as possible, always to a sinecure with no actual demands and more pay, that only an Ivy League grad could get hired for.
