It's already been happening. EA etc etc. I know what you mean though.

I thought you were in Germany?

I don't really know what you mean with "invited" but I sure live in Germany.
It's just at the time when I had the money to buy some Miracles, I didn't know that there is a UM UK office.
Oh whatever, I'm pretty happy with the SM64 :P

Aren't all the scholarships back yet? They are here :s lol... one of my friends is going premed and turned down 2 full rides and is instead going to Cornell. Then he has med school to pay for...

 

Hey bowei, what are you going to be? I imagine something along the lines of science or math. Maybe even the "p" that must not be named since you love history. Think you said engineer.

My own HS gives out scholarships.

 

Computer Engineer.

 

My HS gives out $100,000  in scholarships a year.

Your own HS? Hell, I'm moving there. Top 1% school in America... doesn't give a dime. But they get scholarship handouts from places that are willing to give, so I guess it's fine. The district here decided to waste ~10-15 mil on construction and updating all servers to win7 along with new touchscreen computers for teachers. They decided to let us pay in full for AP exams and whatnot. Meh. Guess the world is quite different in a lot of places.

Our school used to pay for our AP examns.

 

Our school cost 67million to build this year.

...kinda yeah?

 

We are just a public school. 

 

HOWEVER, we had a SCHIIT load of elementary schools. 5 I think.

 

Nah. I'm a realist. I know what I'll be doing as a fresh hire at a company. Quality testing and making sure it works at the last step.... you odnt get to design schiit until you are a senior engineer at a company. And that is like decades.

Fukking hell. How many students are at your school? A quick calc on my former schools known income put it at only £12 mill/yr.

 

You guys had to pay for your own exams normally? We only paid for extras, like music grade exams, etc.

We are a small town.

 

890 students at our high school.

 

Our school was 67 million dollars at the least. Not including the building of the road ways(we built a whole new street) and blowing up our old school.

 

The academic plan for our town was to upgrade ALL schools in our area that are public schools to new next gen standards. This means that 5 schools in total from 2009 to 2013 have been upgraded/built new/renovated

 

And they all have. Our HS was the last one to be built in that 4 year time period. We've probably spent hundreds of millions. As each school uses geothermal systems with pipes hundreds of feet under the ground.

 

Yep, A.P's require your own payment.

 

I'd say my town spent about 200+ million USD in the last few years(5 years) on schools?

 

Our towns population is about 30,000 - 35,000 people. 

 

Where is our money from?

 

We live in a more afluent area of the surrounding area. CT is known for retired rich people. All this means is higher taxes they pay. Add in the fact that we are in industiral area and have a nuclear power plant means that they all have to pay huge fees to our town. The Nuclea power plant pays a set percentage of each houses tax and also pays money to our town in the tune of few million a year.

I liked the PS3 phat quite a bit, too bad glossy black plastic scratches WAY too easily...

Eh, personal preference. The Dualshock 4 is slightly bigger (more of just wider when it comes to length) and the new XBox One controller is basically the same with the exception of the battery pack no longer jutting out.

Then the XBox controller is still superior to Dualshock 4 then, size wise.

Yup! :P
