Ec 10: You're Done!
With your exams now safely behind you, this might be a good time to reflect on a piece of wisdom from Dave Barry:
Basically, you learn two kinds of things in college:
- Things you will need to know in later life (two hours). These include how to make collect telephone calls and get beer stains out of your pajamas.
- Things you will not need to know in later life (1,998 hours). These are the things you learn in classes whose names end in -ology, - - -osophy, -istry, -ics, and so on. The idea is, you memorize these things, then write them down in little exam books, then forget them. If you fail to forget them, you become a professor and have to stay in college for the rest of your life.
