All that matters it that you have the knowledge. It doesn't matter if you
got it from school or from experience, just that you got it.

If you don't want to learn, all the college in the world isn't going to
help you. But if you love to learn new things, not going to college is not
going to stop you either. Personally I think I've learned more over the
last 4 years than any school is capable of teaching, but thats just me.

Projecting your personal prejustices about what learning style works best
upon others is neither smart nor productive. Can we all just leave it at
that, and try to get back to something operational?
