When I'm age 101 I might decide to go back to college and get a degree. Will it be too late?

How about when I'm 109? I might live to be 120.

If I'm 80 years old...



It's too late to get an education (or a degree). Is this true or false?

What new intellectual skills will you wish to acquire when you're 109 years old? Most of us will have forgotten how to tie our shoes by then.

With advances in medicine, Alzheimers may not be an issue in the future. Who knows what life will be like 50 years from now? Maybe 100 will be the new 40.

IMO there is definitely a place for formal education in today's world...but what will it be like in another 50 years?...No-one alive today can accurately predict that, just like someone 50 years ago could not accurately predict today!...Mr. Fenn didn't care for structured learning much, yet he endured it in the military as a means to an end: he became an officer and was able to fly some of the best combat aircraft in the world!



I think he stated it best when he said "planning is antagonistic to freedom", sitting in a classroom listening to the droning of a tenured dweeb simply rubbed his maverick soul the wrong way...for me that about sums it up in a nutshell...

There are those that need formal education, and those that teach themselves what is important. I think Fenn falls in the latter category.

Yes, I was fortunate (Aerospace Engineering, also Aviation Technology). However, I have always held the belief that merely having a piece of paper (college diploma) is not what should measure a person's success or ability. I personally have so much admiration for people that find success in their own way.

Wow you have to be smart. Can I ask what you do with all that knowledge? If you'd rather not say...that's cool.

Hopefully for good instead of evil.
