    My dumbass professor said that "US citizens have a lower life expectancy than citizens of any European country".

    I'm sorry to hear that. I didn't get into my first choice. Fortunately, my parents knew the provost. That decision was overturned pretty quick.

    Thighs have grown so much in the last week that my freshly tailored pants are squeaking.

    Also, measured my forearms and my biceps. Forearm wins by 1/4" circumference. I am Popeye.

    According to Wikipedia, Slovakia, Portugal, and the Czech Republic all have lower life expectancies than the US, and all those countries are in the European Union.

    dont sweat it bro

    my freshmen year i was so hung up on not having gotten into my first choice/dream school whatever i missed out on a lot of things and i regret that a lot.

    honestly ime you can be happy no matter where you end up for college and still be extremely successful. i've had friends at ivy league schools who were extremely unhappy and transferred to "lesser" schools and were much happier.

    a good school name on your resume will help open doors, but not as much as great grades, work experience, and interview skills.

    Neo, you're fortunate, not all provosts would intervene, not even presidents. Glad it worked out for you.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was somewhat true, as how you live if you smoke, how you eat, exercise etc. has an influence and America has a lot of obese lazy fastfood eating people, which equals lower life expectancy.


    Slovakia and Czech Republic are both former eastern black countries, so you can't compare them with the US.

    Not really. My mom is hard of hearing and she said its hereditary.


    Yeah, dunno what I'd do if I couldn't taste shit anymore. Ugh, that would make life not worth living, TBH.


    They are also ridiculously poor.

    :laugh:

    When I read 187's post, I thought, "no, that's still not true." Then I read Saul's post and thought, "that's what I was gonna say, but I guarantee someone will try to make the point that those aren't real European countries."

    Thank you (and Ed) for making me feel like a mind reader this morning.


    Still worth checking out, no? I mean, it's the cost of a copay.

    I've thought the same thing about losing certain faculties or senses. I don't know if my mind would change if placed in that situation, but I hope I never, ever find out.

    This is ungood. I prefer dumber friends so I seem better in comparison. Although given that I have a brain the size of a planet it means I can be friends with you guys.
