Apparently each credit is supposed to equate to 10hrs work. Now, in agriculture you can earn your 24 credits by learning to use a chainsaw....now, my question is this....Does it take 240hrs to learn how to use a chainsaw :blink: ???

It's called communism.

thanks a fucking lot helen! ( no capitals for you either :p )


If we get the bread, who gets the cake?

It's not communism until someone is seen with the cake.


Are you refering to nomenklatura as a ruling class within a Trotsky caste? :hmmm:

The whole system is pretty bollocks (I was in the first year of it). What still has me sour is that in the Advanced PE scholarship exam no one in the country passed... Including lecturers they got to attempt it afterwards... grrr

It really made high school a breeze though :thumbsup:

by the number of people killed or injured by them, I'd say 240h is about right to learn how to use it properly (including sharpening the chain)
