You seem a little out-of-balance with the universe today.

Perhaps gainful employment would give you less time to fret about things.

You know how gas will fill the available space? I think this is what happens with your constant stream of concerns and worries.

What say you to this?

Or you can go volunteer at the local nursing home.

Old folks might find you comforting. Like a pet.

Jealous idiot,
all I did was post an article from your OWN newspaper
If anything, it confirmed your assertion regarding the failure rate. Had you bothered to read it.
If you have an issue with its interpretation, write a letter to the editor. But don't blame me - Thats childish. Is that what they taught you to school as to how to respond to critique?
No wonder no one in your country can pass a simple accounting exam.
As my dad used to say.

All you have to know is the debits go on the side toward the window.

I mastered accounting in junior college; though the course I took in high school probably helped.

He's "immortal" except for the now dead part!

Funny!!!

Personally, I dont think one needs any advanced math skills to do accounting. Economic forecasting, maybe, but not accounting. What you need is focus - the ability to derive pleasure from a table or column of numbers. Its a relationship preference, more than anything else.

I took 2 semesters, back when I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up, just like now!

And I recall it as arithmetic and knowing what column and form to put the numbers into.

My old man did international finance and told me that accountants and auditors didn't make as much money or get as much respect or responsibility.(If you're a partner in an acct'g firm you can do well but there aren't too many of them.)

I do kind of enjoy making everything add up and work out but it's basically bean counting.

A good friend of mine from HS - who was a pot dealer with a lot of money - became a CPA and makes a lot of money doing peoples' taxes.(he said he didn't have the personality to go the partner route - politics, just like with lawyers)

Hi BRAINLESS DUNCE,

You couldn't answer that Grade 7 question in arithmetic on the number of chocolates.

Try clearing the IIT JEE or the GATE or the CSIR UGC or the BARC entrances or the IIM-A CAT and others.

You'll fail all these entrances since you're a born dunce.

LOL.

Well, in most of my posts over the years, I have been the severest critic of India on all fronts and yet I am blamed for siding with India.

I praise the India entrance exams in engineering, science, finance and management since the exam papers are among the toughest if not the most difficult in the world.

After clearing these extremely difficult entrance exams in India, is it any wonder that many Indian students are topping their courses at the grad school level in the West and that 13 Indians schooled primarily in India are at present the CEOs of 13 reputed global companies and that Indians are a big force in the R & D scene or in Silicon Valley in the US.

TOUGH ENTRANCES IN ASIA

The entrance exam scene in India, and in Asia, is, on the whole, highly competitive and the questions asked at these national level entrances are of a very high order.

In India, entrance exams like the IIT JEE, GATE, CSIR UGC, the BARC School of Sciences, TIFR, the IIM-A CAT and others are extremely difficult and most students anywhere in the world would fail these tough entrances.

Elsewhere in Asia, Japan, Iran, South Korea, Taiwan and China also have challenging entrance exams to top university courses in Science, Tech, Math, Architecture, Management and Medicine.

I wonder why the Christians call the day their prophet (Jesus) was hung on the cross GOOD FRIDAY when it should have been more appropriately named SAD FRIDAY or BAD FRIDAY. LOL.

Actually, it appears I debunked that, with the assistance of your media

You know the reason there are so many foreign students in US grad schools? Not because they are brilliant but because the slots are open, and the schools look for ways to fill them. For worse, many grad school programs are not sexy to us Americans. Its a problem for sure, but its no reflection on the brilliance of the people who step in to fill the niche. Plus, in many cases, the schools get higher fees from the international students.

Back when I was little, I was told that for those with an interest in math, the field to go into wasnt accounting but to be an actuary.

White Americans have fallen far behind in academics and are increasingly being pushed out of the limelight by talented Asian students in the US at all levels of education beginning from grade school and going all the way to grad school. In international assessments of skills in Math, science and language, US students rank very low year after year, while Asian countries are at the top with, if I am not mistaken, Finland being one of the few Western nations whose students do exceedingly well in these aptitude tests. LOL.

JOEL: Jealous man with a huge inferiority complex,

Let's talk about the grad school level later where Asian students are at the top.

How do you explain the extremely high rate of Asian students in the US topping at Grade School and at High School and at the Undergrad levels as well?

I hope American Whites are not dropping out of Grade school or high school or undergrad courses like they're dropping out from grad school education. LOL.

Asian students in the US are at the top even in Grade School, High School and undergrad courses.

How do you explain the hard facts of Asians topping Intel Science Contests and Spelling Bees in the US?

Besides, since many years a majority of the US team members to the International Math Olympiad, International Physics Olympiad, International Chemistry Olympiads and other international Olympiads are Asian students.

So, Asian students are at the top at all levels of education in the US.

LMFAO

My favorite all-time meal:
A nice veal parmesan; side of pasta; garlic bread; gorgonzola salad with a nice bottle of chianti. Finish it off with some nice rum cake or cannoli or something else good for dessert.
The main point here being the chianti.
It sounds Tuscany is your place to go.

That is what he has always been doing... Bragging and exaggerating in order to impress his audience.

Some examples:

Sri Aurobindo was recorded to speak English with a strong Indian accent, but according to him he spoke Brit English.

His ex-master was omnipotent and omniscient but yet he failed so many times to guess the Armaggedon.

Sometimes he described his Taj hotels as something super luxury, but in the other thread me and some others after seeing the pictures of his 5 star hotel, had the impression to see 4 star hotel. It was pretty disappointing.
