Don’t mess with Captain Kirk

Savage.

I’d trust Shatner with control over the 7th Fleet more than I would Krugman as Secretary of Treasury or even a lemonade stand.

I don’t know Mr. Shatner’s political views (and that, in and of itself, is a testament to the man’s classiness). But over the last few years I’ve seen several shots like this where he opens fire on some Progressive or SJW with all the panache of Kirk unloading on the Klingons with fully charged phaser banks.

Fiona Pok Wong sues Anglia Ruskin University for mickey mouse degree

Silly foreigner Fiona Pok Wong went to Anglia Ruskin to study International Business Management.

Good, I have no sympathy, Anglia Ruskin was a third rate poly and International Business Management is clearly mickey mouse.

Clearly, we should get rid of at least half of all universities, free up the students to do something worthwhile instead, and let the academic staff find work at their local McDonalds.

Our entire system of cargo cult education is a monumental misallocation of resources based on perverse incentives created by government funny money and obsolete cultural perceptions about the value of a degree.

The fundamentally 19th century model of HE – hordes of people physically travelling to expensive urban locations just to hear somebody talk at them – is also overdue technological disruption. The OU got it right as far back as 1969.

There’s no good reason why students in 2018 can’t use digital collaboration platforms to learn from subject matter experts across the world.

Off course, we don’t want the courts compensating people for their own poor judgement so lets hope the silly cow loses just like the previous dozen or so attempts.
