  1. Another one for the lollipops…. What a generation!!

  2. Muscle free dweebs can end up at the top of th he NSA

  3. Another way to look at it.. the college is buying out of expedience….. Sports slaves of all varieties.$ not really caring about their well-being.. some way for the college to make money.. although it can be an illicit reciprocity if the recipient of Scholarship takes advantage of the opportunity..

  4. Although this does seem potentially to be a stepping stone into college for those General Studies. And other academic opportunities.. it seems to make a farce of opportunity and skill.. it's a cheap manipulative ploy to get a foot forward. That of course just a loose ball park assessment. In the line of objectivity

  5. I think they'd be better off with a PhD ultimately in General Studies rather than this esoteric opportunity of chair sitting and time-wasting… I think it's like the emperor with no thing to do.. as an aspiration and utilitarian career goal.

  6. Maybe someday who knows who's nose…. a booger picking scholarship

  7. hope this applies to all lol

  8. Day 62 of curfew in Kashmir, Please Help 8 million facing daily Terror in Kashmir

  9. You have to freakin be kidding me with this bs, are they serious?

  10. I honestly thank video games for all they taught me. My parents were dirt poor. They never made it past the first 3 years of elementary school. When my older sister started working she bought some games with her first pay check. The games taught me how to manage resources, do basic and statistical math. I also learned how to handle bad situations. Such as physical and mental conflicts. I finished college and now pay all the Bill's for my parents so they can retire.
    After hearing about me and my thoughts on video games can you guess my age?

  11. If schools stopped teaching B.S. maybe kids would be more interested.
    Teaching age relevant subjects is the answer.
    Mandatory suit up for gym period too.

  12. Whoaaa! He looks like a future shcool shooter. I would be careful of this guy!!

  13. "I have a masters degree in Fortnite, when can I start as CEO?" 😛

  14. Guess it makes more sense than Diversity Studies.

  15. NERDS who will be the next stupid drone pilots. "Esports" WTF?!
    Moron violent games for people who can't play real sports? Mass shooter training.

  16. What does video gaming contribute to society?

  17. I need a college degree to play video games? Yeah, incredibly hard to believe.

  18. Do something like need buy food and Conversation talk people hangout make new friends list of things to do go out do have fun with friends and family goes in banks to save you to buying compassion pet pets helping people and sometimes to give people you want like natural regeneration about moving in he wants to in house

  19. I'm slightly alarmed. Is it true that our nominee Joe Biden is nose-diving in the polls? Please advise. Is it because of the blackmailing Ukraine story or is it because he can't put 3 sentences together without having a gaff? Shoot. Not my man Joey "going behind that barn" Biden.

  20. I wish i had this opportunity.

  21. they're parents will bribe top dollars to get them in, just to be molested by the coach.
