Better watch out then next time you bump into a bunch of zombies, and think of firing at will, it may be a group day-trip.

Drug lords are wealthy as well.

What do you want.... glory, fame or fortune? Pick one. Which one requires an advanced degree to obtain it?

Many a people with glory, fame & fortune have od'ed or committed suicide. I'll settle with happiness.

For some people the pursuit of happiness (nice movie, btw) involves fortune (or so they think), for others finding out "what makes things tick", for others getting a decent job, for others having a good quality of life, for others leaving their mark/making the world a better place/whatever etc.. Then again, others may be perfectly happy working as bouncers at clubs.

Of course nothing "requires" a degree. We require air, food, water and shelter (well, and the internet ). It's just that you have better chances achieving some of the above with an advanced degree.

From successful writers to top crime attorneys, one-hour talks with hookers or accomplished actors/actrices.
From Diego Maradonna in deep coke, to smoking goldplated-filter cigarettes with a prince of Quatar.
From small talk about the weather with the CEO of Venezuela's national oil company, or billion dollar "crude" oil Texans with Bentley/day creditcards.
Or attempting to convince the No1 president of Daimler Benz that it's not opportune to order half a dozen callgirls
(by pouring him and his DB mates a glass of whisky).

Best ever chat I had lasted a couple of hours, with the public relations CEO of Nike, amazing individual.
(I've got money in the bank, of an advanced shoe sole patent, from Nike. My g/f's doing, not mine)

Pays well too.
Plus grand tips, plus gratuity for every taxi ride, nightclub or casino transfer, hooker stop-over, joint or coke ride.
Plus pays university tuition (at expense of a couple of added scars and tissue).
Two advanced degrees for the ticket of one.

(afraid I'm just a private boys boarding school bloke, served hard time with the priestly brothers at a catholico jail, they invited the antichrist in. Dennenstraat 10 in Siltech city, same joint as this guy : http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charl_Schwietert )

One of my best pals is a bouncer.
As you probably know there are some less... interesting and/or fun parts on the job description (there is an abundance of red-necks with guns here), but it's generally OK and it pays well.
By the way, having (relevantly) advanced education and being fairly well brought up (his upper-class family consists mainly of doctors and high school teachers), he easily stands out from his peers (i.e. the average brute) and, more or less, manages two clubs now.

We're way off topic, though. Let's not turn this interesting topic into another Blowtorch thread!

Top turns Bottom (by the flick of a light switch, as your pal knows)

Merely a stimulant to strive for modesty, no guarantee for increased social adaptedness.
But easily makes one wind up at the wrong thread adress.
