I was never getting laid more than when I was 22 or so. WTF? Can't they just hook up with each other and stop talking about it?
In my experience it's the older students who are most irritating in class. When I was getting oracle certified I had an unbearably pompous fortysomething who felt the need to regale us all with his stories from the trenches during class, in spite of the fact that they had little value in terms of clarifying lessons. He would actually interrupt the teacher to waste time this way. I had similar problems in grad school - folks who were inclined to be dismissive of class content, during class, because they didn't see the value of it based on their own experience.
The people who annoy me most in class and on this board are the hard-asses; the super-opinionated "my way or the highway" types. When I was younger, I thought it was cool to be like that, and I definitely see it a lot in the younger posters, but I see it in some of the older ones too.

HippieLawChick, when I think of the pros and cons of UofW. You go right into the Pros column. Your posts are either incredibly right or downright hilarious and sometimes both. You hit the nail squarely on the head, I love how so many of these kids on here talk about Harvard v. Columbia w a full ride v. NYU. Not one word about career goals, but rather what free tshirts or mouse pads they got in the mail and in what sort of envelope their Yale deferral came in. And yes, I'm one of the old ones. And by that, I mean over 30. Maybe we'll be seeing each other in Wisconsin.
I just want to get in, work hard, rank high, and get out as quickly as possible. There is to much going on to care about the rest.
