Interesting choices. Several sources I've seen intermingle Regis (the campus in Denver, not the satellites), Colorado College, and the USAFA with some of the ones on that list.

I was only listing state schools- so none of the private schools or that institution for cadidiots is on there.

cadidiots?

Maybe people that do CAD-type work?

That would probably be Colorado Tech, maybe not.

Not sure why they would be idiots though- they do pretty good salary wise!

[quote=Sonic_Spork;54046887]Completely ridiculous wish: That we not only had easy access to the beautiful mountains, but also the ocean and warm beaches. (Sorry...I just miss the Carolina beaches I grew up going to.)



2. If not that, or in addition to that, I wish the public high schools taught driver's ed. I don't know if any of them do in this area, but Widefield didn't, nor did Coronado. When I was a kid, it was taught to high schoolers. Did that change nationwide or was it not ever a thing here? I don't know.


I like this one too. I had Driver's Ed in school, the whole process seemed smoother. I'm working on the learner's permit now with my teen.

Most school districts got rid of Drivers Ed due to the lawsuit-crazy citizens of this country and also insurance liability costs.

If Junior got into an accident on school grounds during training guess who the parents will blame? (and it is NOT Junior).

I had the training way back in HS in '79 and loved the classroom part where they showed those Ohio State Patrol crash movies (!).

Cadidiots= A detrimental term for service academy or ROTC cadets bestowed upon them whenever they venture forth from the confines of the academy/campus and interact with other servicemembers in a post-school environment such as when they do their Summer Training (i.e. Air Assualt or Airborne School). Because everything and anything in the military needs to be demeaned in the meanest sense.

You've never heard the term?

No- and I was in the USAF for 8 years.

Makes sense I guess! I use to laugh at the recent academy graduates (Butter Bars a.k.a. 2nd Lt.'s) that would tell a Chief Msgt. (E9) how to "do things" because they were officers and graduated from the USAFA.

Those new Butter Bars learned quickly that even though they were officers they do NOT mess with the Chiefs (!).

Heard of butter bars. Never heard of cadidiots, but can understand the relevance of the title.

Growing up here, AFA cadets were always called zoomies, and Ft Carson soldiers were doggies. In those days, the latest models of Corvette could always be found in the AFA upperclassmen parking lot. Meanwhile, Ft Carson tended to have a large population of ten year old, clapped out muscle cars with big fat tires and air shocks. Those titles disappeared sometime in the late 80s when the city had a big population jump.
