From what I know, European countries tend to provide a lot of educational subsidies.
My friend studying at ICL is paying in excess of 100k per semester as an international student.

I don't know what to say.

Why would a government allow this?!
Making higher education only available to people with lots of money is so ******* stupid. It's so wrong on so many levels.
**** like this makes me upset....and there are not many things out there that make me upset.
Absolute daylight robbery...

I've been to this park! Now that the city is no more, you can just visit Mongkok instead. It's a lot like the walled city there.

Good music! Especially the first two and the last track.

Yup, it takes the pressure off the students, they pretty much don't even have to think about paying the debt back until they earn over $50k/year.

Hey Panda, was it the government that gives out student loans or was it one or two giant corporations that did it in the states? When did you have to start paying the debt back?

I don't know about that...I'd say the hygiene situation there isn't the highest...

There's just a lot of people in Mongkok. Apart from that, it isn't very similar to the Kowloon Walled City.

 


 

Two (one?) more to the list! (Click to show)

When I got up to the ending of the last episode, I thought to myself: "This sounds a lot like Takane Shijou from IM@S..." What a coincidence!

The US govt is one of the largest givers of student loans here.......

It is also them that made it by law. That student loans cant go away even if you declare bankrupcy. And who allow 14%+ interest rates to be given by Salie Mae because FREE MARKET and no govt while actively pursuing govt intervention in other industries.

lol what were you looking at?



Meh, I skipped 70% of my lectures and didn't do 1x% of my assignments this semester.
They were so boring, I learn way better by myself.
Some of my assignments consists of doing stupid computations by hand that could (and should) be done on a computer.

At the beginning of this semester I was excited about a course called "Signals and Systems" since it has a lot to do with audio.
but instead of getting to learn how to design filters and all that cool stuff, I get to do fourier and laplace transforms.... by hand....

 
Me: eff this schiit, I'm going home.

Do you know of a good book or program that could let me understand fully what a fourier transform into frequency response and phase response means (especially the phase response, group delay, etc. etc.) without doing the math?

Since you seem to imply that one does not need to do the math to know what's going on.
This is what I used.

Time for another short review (don't yell at me Boris -_-)

Last night I finished Serial Experiment Lain. I had this downloaded for years but never got around to watching it. Spurred on by headphonatic's review, I finally put on my big-boy pants and dove in.

Watching this series made me so sad, sad becuse they just don't make em like this anymore. There really is hardly any dialogue, this show is all about MOOD. The music and sound effects are an integral part in any show, but here it's extremely important. So important, that I would recommend people D/L the series since most streams are down mixed to mono and you need to hear everything.

A truly adult anime, many people would find this too boring or incomprehensible to enjoy, and that's understandable. One of the best aspects of this show is how deliberate it is in everything it does. There is no fluff, everything is there to set a mood, progress the story, confuse you a little (on purpose), develop a charatcer. The evolution of Lain's bedroom as she herself evolves was a great touch I thought.

The only two downsides I had were that half of the 2nd to last episode was a (although cool) recap of the series told via a jazzy montage, and the ending. The ending they go with is almost the worst one they could have picked. If the ending was as thought provoking as the rest of the series, I probably would have given this a 10.


9/10
