This from someone who was denied admission to ASU and had to settle for the "safety schools" in Chapel Hill and Raleigh.

You're an idiot. They serve the region very well with their work, which is very high quality. And the only idiots at ASU are the NC State and UNC grads.

I think it means your degree was of less importance since it came from a lesser school...

Thats what it looks to be

Easy now...UNC is consistently ranked as one of the top 5 Universities in the country.

NCSU, UNC-CH, and ASU are all fine institutions. Each one has strengths over others and vice versa.

This town needs more bars. That will keep the economy booming. When people are doing well....they go out and celebrate with a drink. When people are tanking....they go out and get tanked. Vice investments have long been regarded as "recession proof".

ASU doesn't have the clout that you claim. Best thing they have done lately was beat Michigan in a football game. Their 15 minutes of fame is over.

Isn't "Dumb Redneck" a bit redundant?

Anyway, here is a fine example of a UNC-CH education....I've always heard that part of the UNC-CH exit requirements involved learning the phrase "Would you like fries with that order, Sir?" Read the last line below and you'll see what I mean....:)

"Taheri-azar was, for a time, a member of the Sigma Epsilon fraternity, but he was expelled by other members, apparently for being reclusive and antisocial. A former member of the fraternity said that Taheri-azar "was from a wealthy family, a frequent marijuana smoker and 'most always high' and that he drank heavily as well".[19] UNC Chancellor James Moeser described him as "totally a loner, introverted, and into himself".[20]

At the time of the attack, Taheri-azar had a job at a local fast food restaurant, Jimmy John's Subs."
