No, that would be anti intellectualism.

True.

Which sadly has become synonymous with conservatism.

You sound like a dinosaur. Stuck in your ways. Things change. People change along with them or get left in the dust. Not sure why you wish to render yourself irrelevant by refusing to accommodate the future, but you're free to make whatever foolish choices you wish...

Please. You probably went to Oral Roberts or some lame school like that.

Best sport at your school was field hockey.

Go somewhere please...I'm busy.

You mean you're too busy being stuck in the past. No wonder life and the world are passing you by.

And didn't you go to ASU? That's where students from the Big 10 school states go when they can't get into a Big 10 school.

No, it's where they go when their academic credentials, extracurriculars, and community service aren't good enough to get them admitted to a Big 10 school. ASU gets the Big 10 rejects. It's ranked even lower than Nebraska, the Big 10's worst school.

Maybe so, but no one cares. Our school is nicer, Tempe and the whole East Valley is better than every other Big Ten college town, our campus is nicer, weather is warmer, girls are prettier, and we have a hell of a lot more fun....in addition to getting a damn good education.

Besides, we're still better than Oral Roberts.
