Mater’s Musings #62: “Real-life skills” indeed


Do the fees include the super glue, or is that extra?
Is it issued before or after graduation?

Good news! Hockeystick Mann is gracing us with a tour next year. Maybe he could do a double act with Greta promoting communism. After all they’re both substantial millionaires.

I didn’t download the course guide. They wanted too much information about me. Must be a secret. However I did glean this:

Reflect critically on climate policy issues and practical challenges in diverse contexts.

No need for an expensive course. Dover should hand out “certificates” after a month at the Cat where we do plenty of critical reflection and discuss practical challenges from our many diverse contexts.

Oh. That’s right. We are barking for the wrong side of the issue. Silly me.

Just what you would expect from the ANUs in the parasite robber state on the fake lake.

I wonder what you end up with, a graduate certificate in Rent-Seeking presumably?

Oh dear: https://crawford.anu.edu.au/study/graduate-degrees

even better, you can do a “Master of Climate Change”.

I guess then you’ll have the power to change the climate, no?

I wonder if the kids from XR have the attention span to complete a university course, even one as soft as this, though it assumes a prior degree.

This one is for the more committed devotees who wish to become advisers to politicians and inflict some real damage on human beings rather than the artifacts of a culture they are incapable of appreciating.

I suspect this a qualification for Canberra public servants only

I can’t imagine anyone else looking for such a skill set in the workplace

From the memory hole:

“Remember, remember,
The Fifth of November.
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot!”

The question remains:

“Was Guido Fawkes the only man to enter Parliament with honest intentions?”

Real life skills?

To stop CO2 production?

Must be a degree in nuclear engineering.

You can’t help but pity these poor staggeringly ignorant illiterate innumerate ahistorical anti scientific fact and evidence free imbeciles.

Don’t be too hard on ANU . For about ten years, from the mid seventies, JCSMR was a very fine institution.
