By johnboy 19 November 2008 49

So, the more we know about RiotACT readers the more advertising we can sell which, in the long run, means more and better content for you to consume and argue about.

Today we’d like to know about the educational achievements of RiotACT readers:

Highest level of education completed?

Finished yr 12 in 1987, eleven years in the plebs and ten years here in UK in private industry. Nothing amazing but kept me off the streets.

Yeah el, I did notice that. Although as JB suggests, you do a TAFE component, so it is essentially a Diploma.

johnboy 11:53 am 20 Nov 08

I’d file a trade certificate under Diploma myself.

el 11:42 am 20 Nov 08

Irrelevant to the poll anyway p1 – trades aren’t deemed as ‘education’ it would seem.

The life experience gained by plenty of mechanics during their apprenticeship can be just as limited. As you say, there are a variety of people in every occupational subset of the community

I get irritated by people who assume that extended stay at uni = textbook knowledge only/no life experience. Maybe it does for some, but hey, you can find sheltered individuals in all walks of life.

Granny 10:33 am 20 Nov 08

Well, I don’t know how old, do I? You could be in nappies for all I know.

*guffaw*

Jim Jones 10:26 am 20 Nov 08

How do you know how old I am, Granny?

It’s the thirtieth anniversary of Jonestown today, so I could be very very old.

Granny 10:16 am 20 Nov 08

I am pretty sure I would have been a class or twenty ahead of you!

*chuckle*

Jim Jones 10:13 am 20 Nov 08

I thought I recognised you. We were in class together, remember unit 2 “Why those smartass egghead types are turning the country into immoral homosexuals”, with the guest lecture from Alan Jones?

Granny 9:39 am 20 Nov 08

Hey, that’s the one I went to!

Jim Jones 9:25 am 20 Nov 08

Most people I’ve met who claim to have attended the ‘University of Hard Knocks’ actually hadn’t gone there at all. They’d all just done diplomas at the TAFE of Too Difficult To Bother Trying (most with specialisations in anti-intellectualism).

Granny 9:25 am 20 Nov 08

I think I would rather vote for Passy. At least his chip is likeable.

: )

Gungahlin Al 9:25 am 20 Nov 08

Suddenly I feel so….. succinct!

LOL!

Thumper 8:55 am 20 Nov 08

Wow mate, that’s one huge chip you have on your shoulder.

Apart from that, best of luck with your efforts.

Jonny534 8:33 am 20 Nov 08

I’ll be getting my year 10 certificate in a week or so. Then I’ll be set…

DJ 8:29 am 20 Nov 08

“Yea…It’s a little hard when the Government of the day sends in the Waffen SS with their Rottweilers, riot shields and bad manners or given fact that the little despot almost casualised the entire nation and allowed the off shoring of any industry that wasn’t bolted down, then again I’ve been on the waterfront now for 11 years.”

Ha ha ha! Seen anybody about this?

Thumper said :

Sooo…. Can’t hold down a job but wants to run for elected office…

Right….

Can’t hold down a job?

Personally and I don’t intend to offend anyone but the problem with parliament apart from that 70% of the Liberal Party are Corporate Lawyers and a large percentage of the ALP have no life experience outside of ‘text books'(apart from having to eat chicken noodles five days a week to pay for their Degrees) is that the parliamentary membership are no longer sought from the ‘Coalface’ they are recruited from sideshow alley where they most probably were employed as snake oil sharman and fortune tellers or given a leg up by some old factional war lord.

It’s no wonder todays crop of parliamentarians are obsessed with worshiping market forces as if it were some kind of pagan deity.

Congrats, Bubzie. So it’s formal time of the year again? Always makes diverting entertainment to stumble across schoolies arriving for these functions. Some very inventive and creative souls out there in graduation land. Beats the stuffing out of the staidness of my uni graduation.

To whit, Bachelor of Arts in Communications (UC) and Certificate in Migrant English Tutoring (CIT). Oh, and a degree from the School Of Medium To Medium/Hard Glancing Blows
To The Side Of The Head.

Special G 8:17 pm 19 Nov 08

I’ve got a degree in Sports science an adv dip in Massage therapy and use neither of them. Flights of fancy when younger thought I would make them into a career. Working stupid hours 7 days a week with no holiday pay is not all its cracked up to be. So I did what every self respecting Canberran does and joined the public service.
