    Re: America or Australia?

    before packing for MIT you have to do a few things:
    1) get in. like others have said, it's flipping hard, especially if you're white or asian.
    2) be loaded. student fees in America are no joke.

    if you satisfy 1) and 2) then by all means hop on the next plane there

    Re: America or Australia?

    MIT is a top university, is very well-ranked and has a brilliant reputation. You can literally get employed in any country with that on your transcript.
    It would definitely provide a better education, connections and resources. However, it is just unbelivably expensive ($60K), and considering that you're intending on staying in Australia ... it might not be worth the expense.

    You should take advantage of MIT and go global! ^^

    (Honestly ... all these people hating America while not having travelled further than Wollongong or Newcastle...)

    Have you ever met a murderer? If not, do you hate them nevertheless?

    I agree, I mean, I've seen worse, but in recent times, this has to be one of the most ridiculous comments I've read on the forum

    Well. A lot more people die from traffic accidents than terrorist attacks. Doesn't stop me from getting on the road to catch a bus or something.
    I see that someone wrote 30,000 die per year from terrorist attacks in UK and Spain. But there are over 37,000 deaths due to traffic accidents per year in the U.S alone. And lets not even talk about china (btw I'm chinese)

    So don't worry about the gun massacres (no actually you should be worried... just you know, don't let America's gun-filled image stop anybody from going to America to pursue their dreams). And watch out for cars, everyone.

    P.S. so how did it go? did you get in?

    Ummm ..... you seem to be confusing terrorist attacks with gun massacres by a madman.

    Assuming you are saying that the problem with stereotyping is making a sweeping generalisation (because I can't think of any other possible problem with it - in fact, stereotyping is just a commonly used generalisation about people):

    Didn't you say: "Highest anti-vax rates are in rich suburbs in Sydney. I blame the uneducated housewives of rich people."

    Was that generalising?

    Or what about this one?: "fuck the turks. giant shitbags..."

    Tell me - when is generalising/stereotyping valid and when is it not? I suspect the answer is that it's valid when you agree with the sentiment, not valid when you don't.

    (Regarding your first statement, it is interesting that you think that the entire responsibility falls on the wife. Sounds to me like a misogynistic leaning)

    Fun Fact: Your body will fully decompose eventually assuming we don't achieve biological immortality within the next 150 years.

    Now that we have that out of the way, we can take a look at the risks of going to the big name universities in the United States.

    Oh look at that, sedentary lifestyle increases your risk of long term diseases.

    Looks like we won't make it to immortality after all.

    Just so we don't have this discussion in the future, my definition of the natural numbers includes 0.

    If you count all mass shootings in the US (more than one dead or injured) there have been 297 so far this year.
    If you count shootings with more than one death, there have been 84.
    The total number of gun deaths in the US this year is 9995. That's one every 40 minutes.
    9996 .... 9997 ..... 9998 ...... 9999 .....
