Um, yeah, typically. I've never known a teacher whose degree wasn't a Liberal Arts degree. The term "Liberal Arts degree" covers bachelor's degrees in a very wide variety of subjects. It simply means that their education encompasses a wide variety of subjects, social sciences, history, humanities, philosophy, science, literature, language, etc., as opposed to a very specific degree where you study very few subjects unrelated to your specialty. The idea of the liberal arts degree was to provide graduates with a well rounded education. Degrees in education degrees are Liberal Arts degrees, however, all that was needed to substitute teach when I was in Michigan was to simply have a bachelor's degree.

 

I did not know this, thanks.

Shit, dude. I guess you're going to have to dump her. ;)

A well educated girl like her? No way!

In my book a lack of a car is a positive like the lack of broadcast television in your home.

I've never wanted a car.

I've sometimes wished I was able to learn to drive so I could hire one once in a while but ownership of a car is a millstone, a money vampire and an environmental pollutant.

Yes, but public transportation in the USA sucks.

My fifteen minute commute to work by car takes over two hours by public transportation (bus).

We have bus systems in the Detroit area, but I've never used them.

There's an interesting experiment for you.

Plan a journey in the Detroit area and take the bus.

Calculate the time and the price and balance it against the average price of a car (tax, parking, fuel etc).

Next time you meet a fancy pants car owning internet date you can relate the findings of your experiment to her.

This is Detroit, I'd get killed just stepping into the city.

Dude, I lived there. Detroit is a big talking city, and sure it has its fair share of crime, but it isn't really the way people make it out to be (at least not anymore). I lived in a fairly poor part of the city because it was right next to where I worked, I stayed out and came home all hours of the night. It's safe enough.

The people who live in the suburbs are scared shitless of that place. It is kind of funny.

I was joking.

I'm actually taking drivers training. I took drivers training when I was 18 and I hated it, now that I'm 5 years older I can handle it better.
