This.

Is.

Awesome.

A world class education, for free.  You couldn't hope for anything better than this.  Anything MIT does, you can download course material and learn until your heart is content.  Anything from Aeronautics to Writing.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Quick, turn it off and run a magnet along the hard drive maybe the men in dark suits will go easy on you if you don't do it again.

Damn you Cain. I don't have time to read all this, do other stuff in my life and sleep too. DAMN YUO!
Prisons are for those who cannot exist without preying on others.

Murderers, rapists, thieves, and Halliburton execs. 

Potheads?  Meh.  All they do is sit on the couch, eating Cheetohs.

This is completely fucking awesome, I wish I could get a living stipend so I could just sit here and read all day.

It's at times like these, when such wonderful material is right before me, that I wish I had highspeed instead of dail-up.

Number one reason to go to University is for incredible download speeds.  I should have bought an extra hard drive when I was studying.
