Today I found out that my computer is full of elves.

And Macs aren't.

Sorry Mac, Linux was always better than you, and this is the icing on the cake. I have elves.

Where none of this needs to happen: this thread.
Yeah, holy shit people, where do you think you are?
You mean aside from a forum where dertails are notorious and general discussion "[emotion] today" threads are basically unending derails?  :P

Just trying to avoid potentially thread-locking anti-tumblr backlash. This thread locked would make me sad :(

This. Seriously, didn't nenjin just have to tell a bunch of you to knock off the tumblr ranting in the rage thread? What makes you think that the happy thread is a more appropriate place to start arguments?

... yeah, FD kinda' got it.

In regards to the actual scholarship question, there's only been one bit of advice that was actually meaningful, and that was check. Your local and personal situation is going to be drastically different from anyone else that has been talking to you, unless they're actually in the same area you are (and pretty damn possibly not even then).

Personally, despite being basically a straight up WASP whose family made too much money to qualify for much from that angle, I got a 75% scholarship for my four year basically without trying, with a GPA of something like 3.6 and pretty much zero extra-circulars. A slightly higher (something like 3.7 or 3.8) GPA would have nabbed a straight up 100% tuition and books. It lapsed due to reasons I've forgotten at this point part way through, but... yeah. And I almost certainly qualified for a bunch of stuff I never applied for. So check, apply to everything, and see what happens. You very much literally won't know until then, because the on the ground stuff varies ridiculously.

Key and Peele has a new skit about how racism helps black people survive a pod-people-esque alien invasion, and it's fucking hilarious

Here's a question.

How many casualties do you think there would be before it got caught if somebody went onto a random engineering Wikipedia page and changed a * to a +?

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

There was a slightly similar premise in an earlier one where they're the only black people in a stereotypical suburb after a zombie apocalypse, and all the zombies either ignore or actively avoid them.

I actually have no fucking idea how to go about even looking for scholarships, let alone applying to them. :/

Like, googling doesn't help :c

It'd be hilarious.

I'm currently in the running for the "how many calories can a 21st-century middle-class First Worlder get from oatmeal" contest. I'm also feeling fit as a fiddle, so, you know...

(I am attempting to get through this year without having microwaved a single packaged meal. So far it's worked- I've only used the microwave once, and that was to thaw meat.)

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

Ask your university's financial aid office/check the university portal site.

Step one is to check with the financial aid department of the school you're applying to, as FD ninja'd.

This is also steps two through ten. Also check with high school counselors and whatnot if you're going in for the first time (which, I don't think you are, but someone else might be) -- even if they don't specifically know, there's good odds they know who does. I would also probably recommend the local adult education facilities, if you have some in your area -- sometimes they have connections with the local colleges and whatnot, and even if you're not a student with them they may be willing to point you in the right direction.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it. Meat is much trickier, and some sorts are just bugger-off no this isn't working, but most things that aren't meat nuke passably.

Stuff advertised as microwave meals and whatnot are pretty universally terrible, though, yeah, with a few exceptions.
