How New York City Ruined My Ability to Get a Good Night's Sleep

“This is a grand tale. Thank you for sharing it. Even if you aren't doing an MBA and are studying something else take up some Financial Accounting or a more useful subject like Ancient History Lessons For Modern Management. Soon you will be asleep.”

“Well as a MBA to be and a banker to be I OBJECT to that characterization of us students You know I am learning a lot of important things at college and if you dont believe me then check out my substantial twitters on the subject and eat crow!”

“Idea you are absolutely right. Im getting my BBA and gonna get my MBA and become a rich banker thanks to you and the college industry that has schools available for guys like me - thank you thank you, thank you! Keep em coming we need people at all levels of society including those BA grads because they will one day end up being the customers of the financial products that I will be responsible for selling!”

Too Cool for School? Examining the Case Against College

Commented Aug 30, 2010 at 12:43:55 in College

“Well doctors kill hundreds of patients each week - you should google Peter Provonost - so without lawyers what do you suggest we do? Mete out rough justice and kill them? And lawyers are necessary to check government abuse of power - not just private abuse of responsibility or power. And Farmers are good but Artists are too, same with activists and organizers - they are all important.”

“Well this is a huge debate you can see now on forums like MBA Underground which is about how MBA students like me (Well, Im gonna get into an MBA program) are being made to serve fries at McDs, but really is there any cause for alarm? Im gettin my BBA and gonna get my MBA and Im gonna be a rich banker so I have no concerns about it and I tell you, if I was really an underachiever I wouldnt do a BBA I would be at one of those BA liberal arts schools where anyone gets a degree and I can tell you, MBA is much more prestigious and even though about 1 million MBAs are graduating each year there is nothing to worry about because the bubble will return and Chyna will burst and we will all get jobs here with our MBAs so nothing to worry about friends.”

“Thats not true my friendo because the only reason you can see a doctors today with any degree of safety is because there are a bunch of lawyers willing to take on the establishment of dangerous and "we are the god you are just the patient" mentality in that profession which still sees hundreds of dead and injured patients each day - you should search for "Peter Provonost". Also artists are the soul of any country and we need more of them. Activists are necessary in any society but usually politicians do this job and you can take your pick there. Engineers are needed but without organizers and thinkers what will they invent? Steve Jobs is just as much of a thinker and organizer as he is an engineer.”

“This is the best idea ever. Because Im a BBA student and gonna get my MBA and become a rich banker, and this is the way to network baby! Those old crusty hanger ons on Facebook can now go away - we don't want them hanging around our prestigious college only facebook and chat rooms - its about time we reclaimed facebook as our own! Get rid of the old folks and those non-college people who invaded our space on facebook and who lack the fundamental attributes that come with getting a college education”

“Neither Chrysler Building nor WTC Towers were 900 feet from the tallest building in Midtown.

I have read a lot about this and people are saying that it's too big and too tall to be that close to the Empire State. MOMA Tower was made a lot smaller - why not this one?”

BrooklynChef on Aug 26, 2010 at 10:07:48

“I don't know bankertobe. I am a born and raised New Yorker. And, as someone who grew up in Manhattan and lives in Brooklyn, I am in love with the skyline. But, it is a skyline that changes. I am sure that people were not thrilled when the Empire State Building was poised to take the place of the Chrysler building as NYs tallest. And, when the twin towers were built, the uproar against those monstrosities echoed for years. But, they became part of the skyline. And, beyond the overwhelmingly tragic loss of life, we, as New Yorkers, were sad to see that part of our skyline disappear. New Yorkers will grow to love the new tower and see it as part of the fabric of NY. History says it's so.”

But I read on SleepNY http://bit.ly/cW1G9X that it's not so good for the area and will detract from the ESB and will make Manhattan look kinda funny,”

“There are plenty of places to look. You need to forget all the doom and gloom that you have been reading like those folks on "MBA Underground" and start thinking of making lemonade out of lemons! Think of the hundreds, nay, thousands of MBA Schools you could enrol in, just like I am! Im gonna get my BBA and gonna get my MBA and WHAM! I have the skills to be a banker! So if I can do it any young person with 2 arms, 2 eyes, and 2 hands, and a mouth, nose and 2 legs can do it to!”

“As someone whos gonna do an MBA I think this is a great idea. Who else is better to teach students like me who are going to be cutting swathes through the masses of opposition in the cutthroat world of banking than a real life general! Well, one day when Im a banker after I finish my MBA, I would love to have been given some experience and stories from a guy like McChrystal! WAY TO GO YALE! This is what is required to reverse the trend that business schools have been suffering since 2007 when the NY Times declared that they were losing their worth as you can read: http://bit.ly/cLuEnj Well, thats tripe!”

“You are sounding like the folks on "MBA Underground" who speak about the negatives of getting an MBA with 150 k in debt as if it is something bad or something. Let me tell you, as someone doing a BBA and who's gonna get an MBA and become a banker, the colleges are our future! Just imagine a society without these business grad schools! Imagione if you couldnt become a banker or get an MBA! Just imagine if we could ONLY study science, or for one of the vocational professions like law medicine or engineering? Could you imagine that? Well my friend, I cannot imagine being restricted that way. Besides, I learn a LOT of useful things in my BBA and MBA like marketing and managing people, and sales and things and ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY! And I wont be serving other people fries at McD like those who stop at getting a BA or BS!”

Whenever there is a bad doctor, no one could get money for losing the wrong arm. etc etc You get my point! Well, I have this insurance and I say its good, Im gettin my MBA one day and I can tell you that it will be worth every penny - the degree and the insurance.”

And if you dont wanna become a banker, what about an alternative? Like you could always start your own college and train other people to become MBAs. How is that a Bad Plan?”

“You sound like the people on "MBA Underground". College is not a waste of money, I know coz Im getting my BBA and my MBA and Im gonna be a banker and you gotta ask yourself - who's kids are gonna be serving who's kids fries? Like it not, having a degree is better than not having a degree because in this Dog eat Dog world the Big Dogs rule. I have friends who just did their BBA, no MBA, and they are working at Red Lobster and Olive Garden all because they didnt do what Im gonna do - which is do an MBA and get that banking job - besides - what other industries are there today except banking and finance, and running colleges?”
