Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Spinz My kid is taking an 8 credit intenstive chemistry lab class at the University of Utah this summer

The class is 6 weeks long.
5 hours of class per day (7:30 a.m. to 12:30 pm).
Each day there is a lecture, a lab, a lab report to write, chapters to read, and a problem set to complete and turn in.
Each Friday there is a midterm exam.

This is an 8.0 credit class at the university level. My kid just finished his junior year of high school. He is working on this class from 7 am to between 11 pm and 1 a.m. each day.

A normal science class during the school year is 4.0 credits per semester, so to earn 8.0 credits a student would start the class in late August and finish the first week of June. With the class my son is taking, they cram it all into 6 weeks.

He will do well...with all that he won't have time for much else.

(But later keep him away from the stump remover!)

Excellent! Dual enrollment is the way to go

Is he planning on being a chemist or going into medical field?

That's a pretty intense classload. I loved summer school, when I was in college. Full time registration was considered 8.0 credit hours, too. There were 2 summer sessions, and I'd knock out 16 credit hours between them.

All while working a 40 hr./wk full time job.

Sleep? What's that?

Med school. The class that keeps a lot of kids out of med school is organic chem, so my kid is focusing on chemistry early. He only needs 1 year of general chem, 1 year of organic chem and 1 year of biochem, but he must ace those classes and know the subjects cold for the MCAT.

Great choice. My son wanted to be a doctor too but after graduation with a dual major (Chemistry and Biology) he stayed working for the government as a scientist, even after he passed the MCAT, eventually becoming a High School Principal, he now makes as much as a doctor and doesn't have to pay malpractice insurance. He's also a product of dual enrollment and offers college courses at his All Science school. His sister has taken a few courses already plus AP classes and she'll be a senior next year.

I did the very same thing many years ago. Yep LOTS of work. Summer science classes were filled with kids who were advanced placement out of high school and enrolled in the BSMD program. The most cut throat little bastards I ever saw.

On the upside... Summer classes have lots of young honeys who like to dress real skimpy and ride men's stiff cocks.

Unlike me who road the dirt bike out to the quarry early blasting shit with my H&K91. Then it was to the swimming side of the quarry where young honeys in bikinis if that, liked to party & ride hard cock.

If given a chance for a redo of life I can see where buckling down & going to school would be worth it now. I remember my dad saying, once I was out of high school "I aint paying for your ass to go to college! You fucked off the last 3 years of your life thinking you where some playboy, chasing pussy & get fucked up!

Knowledge is power. Being like a turd floating around on the creek of life being blown hither and yon by the wind...and fucktards...is no way to live. Taking an active hand in what life holds for us requires wising up and education. Living stupid requires a lack of awareness to be happy. Truly fucking stupid people would die young if the socialists did not keep them alive to both vote... and to exploited.
