    I'm curious about the education everyone here has. What level of education you reached (high school, college, etc.), what you majored in in college if you attended, master's, PhDs, etc. just anything like that. or if you obtain most of your sciencey knowledge from books, magazines, whatever, mention that. I'm curious because it seems like there are a lot of really smart people in here, and I'm wondering how they became as smart as they are. and i think this fits under "Education" better, but I'd like it to actually be replied to... so, have at it, and don't disappoint me!

    I am presently working on my GED, then it's off to college for a psychology degree. The knowledge I have accumulated is the opposite of trivia, and my only weak area is math (which is why I am "working" on my GED. My math level suxxorz).

    I have spent the past two years (last year mainly) in hot-persuit of knowledge. As a result, I know more about politics, the sciences, philosophy, etc, than most (again, not the trivial aspects of them. I only remember useful things). Understanding how the mind works is a "natural talent" of mine due to my analysis abilities.

    So yeah, most of my learning has consisted of research and trial and error. I come out knowing as much as most college grads. Heh (minus math of course!)
