    I am very much introverted in my personal life, but the matching, sorting, and judging of candidates is fun. I don't get attached emotionally to the candidates; if they don't "work" I move on to new ones. Yeah, I get that it is possibly a better job for a more people oriented extrovert; but it pays the bills... plus, I chose to get a psych degree so I have to take what I can...

    Have been since I was a kid, coming from a family of both (unwilling) military service and amateur historians. It's part of my rough understanding of human history since the advent of civilization in Mesopotamia.

    Some kids just memorized dates in school. I memorized the entire timeline of life on Earth. War is a part of that.

    TBH, I'm not too familiar with the Eastern front, outside of a few token battles. My interest stemmed out of my grandfather's war stories, who landed a few hours after D-day in a Sherman. Two Shermans actually, lost one in the Bulge. Still kicking at 93! Though senility is really catching up with him.

    NATO didn't have an answer for the T-54 until the M60 Patton, and even that was an inferior design imo. Likewise with the T-72, when it came out. Dunno why the Russianophlies get so upset over crappy WWII equipment...when there's a reason my safe has more than a few pieces of Soviet military tech.

    Also, unrelated, but I think you might appreciate this:

    I like to give the Russian-fanboys a bone when it comes to the T-34. It was a solid design, compared with all the crap they had before it, even if it was quickly outclassed. Russia really had its pants caught down with Operation Barbarossa.

    Really, Russia, that's your idea of military innovation?

    Ah, the smell of freedom! The best part of this new schedule is that I'm getting 3 and 4 day weekends regularly. Who needs vacation when you're off more days than you work? Granted, my working-days are comparatively grueling (12.5 hours plus commute), but there's fewer of them.

    With regards to helping people...I'll give you an example of my ideal. A Case business student was moved by Mark Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, so wanted to change the way Americans eat. So about four years back, he used his business acumen to start a food-delivery service.

    What started as a small operation out of his pickup truck for a few dozen people, has grown into multiple trucks and a dozen employees delivering food to over 3000 customers per week. I've been buying from him weekly for the past two years.

    What's his model? It's a more convenient CSA. Each week he drives around local farms and butchers in Northern Ohio picking up organic and free-range veggies and meat, which he divvies up into different-sized bags. He then drives to a few dozen pickup-points around the city for his subscribers to pickup their groceries. They range in size from small (just enough for 1-2 people) to huge (enough for a 6+ person family). With the exception of some frozen and dried goods, almost everything is guaranteed to have been picked within the week.

    As the program has expanded, he's increased the variety of produce, has a limited number of slots for subscribers to join him in hitting up the farms for produce and meat (know your food initiatives), and has started hosting classes held by local professional chefs teaching recipes for the more bizarre items in the CSA bag. On Thanksgiving, you can go with him to the farm to choose which live turkey you want slaughtered. It's now the largest such program in Cleveland.

    That's how market capitalism can improve the world, imo.

    It's starting to be about money here, too. The Conservative government removed the tuition cap and in turn said they would pay 15% of everyone's tuition. Everything was fine and dandy for, oh, I don't know... a few months. Now even with the 15% coverage, tuition fees are way more than they used to be. Now the government is wasting money and tuition fees are more expensive. Literally everything about it is a failure. The Cons will use their own failure as "small government" leverage, no doubt.

    Education is very quickly becoming a luxury for the rich.

    Good post.

    What kind of marks/education are required to get into medical in the USA? In Canada, you're going to need an average of around 90% (some universities will take an 85% minimum, but they're rare) and about 10 years of university if you want to work anywhere besides a pharmacy.

    I live where snow and ice rain are common occurrences. People fly past me doing 60 on roads that are 75% iced over because they think 4WD means ice is inconsequential.
