I read that the Brazilians hit two bigs spots in their country. They say it rivals what's in the Middle East. We need to start sucking up to them.

If you don't academicly accel its hard to get a scholarship unless your good at a sport or some activity(music is my thing). Getting in dept is a nightmare because of the economy and FASFA ? Don't make me laugh, you have to be borderline poor to get on that because if your parents together make over 30k a year you can't get it.

Well IMO people not being able to afford college isn't a big of a deal. If you get decent grades you can get some kind of assistance from the college. If you do poorly in school and can't afford college there is always the Army(or any military branch for that matter). They are just waiting to snatch up anyone at my high school.

That sounds a bit ludicrous. Not a big deal?

Run the smokestacks into algae growing systems to make biodiesel, ethanol, and cattle feed all in one go. That way Europe can import the Geewhiz for the Humvee owners to run over while fueling their 8MPG four wheeled barges on my biodiesel(assuming I can get the startup capital). And I can get an Audi R8 Le Manns TDi, paint the company logo on the side, and write it off as advertising.

Brazil is almost at an all ethanal country from there vast numbers of sugar cane. They hardly use any fossil fuel anymore. They are very very ahead of people in the energy race.

More info can be read here.

You mean it's hard to get scholarships unless you can use English without horrendous spelling and grammar?

No, it actually isn't that hard to get scholarships here and there. You can if you try. Full paid-for tuition scholarships - that's a different story.

It is a big deal, but there are definitely ways to do it if you work hard. And don't say the Army is full of people who can't make it through school... That isn't true at all, and I think that's disrespectful. My cousins went to UC Davis and UC Berkeley, and they were in the Marines and Army, respectively (the latter still is in service). They didn't join the military because they were bad in school nor because they couldn't afford college.
