Is a college degree worth it?

In 2008, I was told that technological advances were doubling every 18 months, and that it took institutions of education at least 10 years or more to catch up with those technological advances.
    I myself started college in 1977 in pursuit of a degree in computer science. Since that time I have had to change my degree at least three times due to technological advances. I have had to continue to go to school periodically just to keep up with those advances in technology, only to find that the colleges themselves are unable to keep up.
    In one particular year, I took a class in Adobe CS5. The computer lab at the college only had CS4 and as the class was being taught CS6 came out. The college could only afford to update its computers every three years. If I wanted to learn the current version of Adobe CS6 I would have to learn it myself online without accreditation.
My daughter's high school graduation.
    At this point in time technology is now doubling every three months, computer programs are only available in the cloud because they are being constantly updated and revised, and many of the college programs are simply being dropped because the colleges cannot afford to keep up. If you are graduating this year from college with a degree in technology or science, there's a good chance that the degree you just attained is outdated and you now owe several thousand dollars for an education that is obsolete. Although this may not apply to all fields of study it does beg the following questions.

  • With technology moving faster than ever before and at some point technology moving so fast that it will be impossible for anyone to attain a degree, why haven't colleges come up with a new system of education and certification? 
  • Donald Trump is being questioned about his college, but nobody is questioning the various universities across the country that are issuing degrees and diplomas in fields of study that are not current with technology, why?
  • If you go to school for 12 years but only get a sixth-grade education should you get your money back ?
  • If the college does not teach you what you need to know to enter the field of study that you've chosen, should you be allowed to sue that college?
  • Is it realistic to expect a student to repay his student loan if the education he received does not help him attain a higher paying job?
  • With universities unable to keep pace with technology, how long before industrialized nations are unable to attain the skilled workers they need?

Shiny highly visible UFOs ?

Highly visible shiny UFOs, really?

Your a civilization that's at least 8 to 10,000 years older than Earth's in order to get from their planet to this planet. Our jet fighters are painted to make them harder to spot in the sky, it's called camouflage, correct? And you want to tell me that a civilization that is barely 2000 years old has better technology than somebody from another world? The question isn't whether UFOs exist, the question is which planet are they from, ours or thier's? Your visiting an unknown world with a civilization that is capable of shooting you out of the sky and you have a choice between a bright shiny disc that everybody can see and a UFO that is at least camouflaged, if not cloaked, which one do you choose to visit Earth in? Now if you're an earth scientist who has stolen UFO technology your not likely to be concerned with what color it's painted, and more likely concerned with whether or not you can even get it to fly. 

So the next time you visit a planet inhabited by people who play video games like skeet shoot, don't you think you should at least use some camouflage paint? And if you wanted to be unnoticed when you fly, wouldn't you want your Aircraft to look like the other aircraft flying around?

Tobacco versus marijuana

Tobacco Versus Marijuana

    Tobacco is a known carcinogen and has been proven to be responsible for the death of millions. Although lawsuits have been brought against the tobacco companies and won, no one has been prosecuted for murder, or done jail time. The government refuses to outlaw something that they know for sure is responsible for the death of millions of people, but marijuana on the other hand has been made illegal and millions of people have gone to jail and done jail time for producing it and selling it. Understand the question is not whether marijuana should be legalized. The question is whether justice is truly blind and whether certain people and corporations are being allowed to get away with murder? Are the laws of this country being distributed justly and equally if both products are equally bad for you should not the law be applied equally? Shouldn't tobacco farmers and smoke shops and anyone connected with the production of tobacco be doing prison time? If slapping a label on a product that says that this product may be hazardous to your health and may be a carcinogen, shouldn't the growers, sellers and producers of marijuana also be given that loophole? 

America has the highest number of prisons and prison inmates. Is it possible that the reason this is so, is because the laws are not being equally administered?

Why do chemtrail's or vapor trails only appear on commercial flights?

Why do you not see a chemtrail or vapor trail from the military jet?

   I could be wrong but living next to a military base I see aircraft in the air all the time. But the question that keeps coming to mind is why do I only seem to see vapor trails coming from high-altitude commercial aircraft and the only time I see chemical or vapor trails coming from military aircraft is during an air show? The majority of the time when a military aircraft is flying overhead I have to strain my eyes in order to spot the aircraft. No chemtrail, no vapor trail and that would prompt the logical answer that military aircraft do not want to be seen. But the basic question that I have is why do these other aircraft have to be seen either? Why can't they fly without a vapor trail as well?
