I'm allways hearing about college life and all these college story's.  I'm not american so I havent been "fortunate" enough to experience anything else than american kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school... so here's my question: how old are you usually when you start in college and when you finish...? statistically.

you are 18 when you start and usually you can get a degree in 4 years. But some majors could take way longer.

"College" is the same as "Universitet", in American english... not the same as a "Hogskule"... there is no such program in the US (unfortunately!) Also while many Nordics tend to take a year or two or three off from Gymnasium (sp?) before going on to university, most Americans go straight from highschool to college at around the age of 18. Hope this helps clear up the mystery.

Ummm... its alot differant. After what you call middle school we go into high school. High schools are divided up into categories. Like one high school will be mainly for gardening, one would be for politics and that stuff, one high school are for people who want to become cooks etc. Just general sub categorized schools. The first year in high school is where you learn your basics about your field of interest... the second year you choose another course which is teaches more specifically to your profession of choice and usually your 3rd year is your last (some professions require 4 years of studying) and specifically teaches you about the job you want. Alot of schools have more than one category. Anyway, the good thing about this system is if you dont really know what you wnat to become you will have gained enough knowledge from the first year to know where you want to go the next year... Usually people finish at 18... then you go to the army for a year... and so on...

That's one thing I've noticed amongst the Scandanavians I go to school with... the ones that chose the "humanities" track in either Sweden, Norway, or Denmark really really suck at math and science... because they haven't had to study it for the last couple of years. I wonder if specializing people at such a young age is a good thing? If I had been specialized when going into highschool, I would still be studying computer science right now... and I'm currently studying literature and philosophy... people change, especially at age 16, 17, 18...

The high school i wen to was general education, but if you wanted the last 2 years of high school you could go to a technical specific place half the day.

College is fun. I could of gotten dont in about 4 years but its gonna take me longer.

I like the american system (and thinking about that is what sparked my other topic in this forum), you get to choose courses and shit and there are alot of courses in america which interest me which you cant study in norwegian schools. Like philosophy... and some more which I cant think of now.

That about sums up my college life.  And as I'm typing, it's consisting of:  :bong: :smirk: And later tonight it'll be:  :bong: :bong: :beer: :beer: :bong: :bong:

It's doing great compared to what I expected of it (next to nothing). Thanks for asking. I put all the mycelium chunks back into my casing container and I placed them so the pins were facing upwards. I messed it up Monday morning (the first day I saw pins) and this is a picture from Wednesday afternoon. They aren't beauties, but they're better than nothing.



Edit: That pin in the left-center with the black cap, that's aborted, right?

Looking messy but looking plenty :thumbup:
Whats the stuff under the container?  A rug, perlite or what?
And yup, thats an a abhort, your supposed to pick them before they turn black, I dont know why though, maybe due to loss of potency.

It's perlite. I oversaturated it, so there is standing water at the bottom of my fruiting chamber. That's why it looks like a rug.
