....no point in studying DEAD ones.

Propositum invalidum, old chap. Res ipsa loquitur. One can hardly be expected to master the nuances of the various live languages unless one fully appreciates the "dead" tongues whence they sprang.

Verbum sat sapientes, etc.

But it is harder to cheat (or out cheat) in sports. Just imagine if the liberal ethos that sees all as entitled to the same rewards, regardless of merit (and at the expense of those who legitimately, lawfully earned them) was forced upon sports. Or sports without officials.

But the victim-entitlement mentality began the devil himself.

Note the year and the reason. While that is not warranted today, the principle is valid, and the rest are applicable.

"...suspended for a time." That little weasel-worded loophole leapt out at me....Someone should follow this story a while, see how many cheaters get reinstated...

Good eyes. Note also that the gov. completely forgives student loans after they work for the gov. or a secular non-profit for 10 years, making 120 consecutive payments, thus fostering liberals in gov. as the overwhelming majority of colleges are largely secular. seminaries.

which came to light at the end of the spring semester after a professor noticed similarities on a take-home exam

Now that's the perfect definition of *a special kind of stupid*.

At a grocery store near MIT and Harvard, the limited item count express lane checkout chick was known to remark "Are you from Harvard and can't count or from MIT and can't read?"

(At least that's the way I heard it....)

I believe that Harvard’s endowment is large enough that they don’t need to charge tuition for any student.

Some smattering of Statistics knowledge certainly helps in understanding that CAGW is unprovable BS that is widely spread.

"I was in my 30’s going back to university for career purposes and I resented my time being wasted. The instructor had no business in the classroom. He needed to be in treatment."

While I was in (various) High Schools, I noted that there were a number of instructors who were worse than useless. Progress required rewiring around them.

A few others were truly inspirational and more than made up for the drones. One should always be an active participant in one's personal edumacation.

Statistics and Global Warming:

Exactly.

Saying that AGW is settled science is unscientific. It’s a tip-off that there’s an agenda.

Ditto with Assault Weapons.

No evidence, nada, that assault weapons is part of the murder rate in this country being high relative to other democracies with highly developed economies.

It’s just a feel good kind of thing to people who are into feelings and repulsed by data.

On the other hand, concealed carry saves lives.

Again, the closed-mindedness and even sanctimoniousness of the gun-grabbers is a tip-off that there’s an agenda.

It’s likely that carrying an assault hammer is also statistically beneficial to the carriers.
