Open Thread (Because I Couldn't Call Out of Work Despite the End of Days)

As apparently the only co-blogger left behind, I join the rest of you morons in facing a very unfortunate day:

Remember- they can open doors, outsmart big game hunters, and even killed a guy who hated snakes on his plane.

Open Thread.

After digging through Monty's DOOM posts, I discovered this SHOCKING hidden message which may explain why he was taken and my plaid-short-wearing-ass was left:

"That expensive college degree is looking more and more like a waste of money to a lot of people. There are a lot of problems in America's higher-ed system: some regulatory, some financial, some cultural, some demographic. The main problem (I think) is that too many kids are going to college because they view it as a ticket to a better job -- but as a jobs-training program, a college education fails more often than not, and it's an expensive failure at that. And there's a horrible amount of malinvestment of human labor at work there -- many young people invest 12 years of primary and six years of secondary (or more) into schooling, meaning that they are often in their mid to late 20's before even entering the jobs market...only to find that their 18+ years of education were -- well, not exactly wasted, but rather misdirected. Whatever marginal gain in earning power the college degree gives them is offset by the killing debt and the time loss they incurred just getting the degree in the first place. Yet American parents and children both seem absolutely bent on a college education, the costs be damned."

If you have any culinary skills whatsoever, there is still time. But what kind of dessert he would like, that is the bigger mystery.
