They call normal schools 'colleges' in Europe Land.

He is, but he mistranslated. in portugese, I'm guessing the words for "school" and "college" are similar or the same. Also, most Europeans call college "university".

"Colégio" is a paid school. It can be from 1st to 12th grade. In my case, it was from my pre-primary to 4th grade.

Yes, your college is called "university" here.

"Colégio" sounds like private school.

I should also note that, in Canada, colleges and universities are different things, and most people want to go to university. This further extends America's perceived stupidity, because college diplomas take less time to complete than university degrees, and you usually have more employment oppourtunities coming from a university.

In the US it's hard to get a job without having something tying you to your employer.

You can barely even get a decent job without a degree that's anything more than high-school.

Doesn't a University just have the power to give PhDs?

I play "Pirates of the Spanish main" (and all it's permutations)
It's a constructable card game, and despite the dweeby commercials, it is Awesome.

I would like them more if the masts didn't break on me all the time.

I enjoy playing a fun game called Universal Fighting System (UFS) casually.

http://new.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=9&enmi=Universal%20Fighting%20System

Also back off topic; IMHO 2nd Gen (GSC) was the best. It kept what was good about the previous games, had great music, and the Pokemon designs weren't too ridiculous like they are now. The newer versions of Pokemon aren't that bad but they just aren't as engaging as the older ones were for me. I still want to play silver but its internal battery is dead, GSC takes up more power than RBY because of the day/night system, therefore GSC is too awesome to live.

I had a bunch of those ships. Liked the battle system and the tiny dice, but i lost my collection a while back. Probably during one of my cleaning sprees.

the new generation ship have much sturdier masts, plus, I have a ship with little blades that come out the sides, It is amazing.

the spikes have little cog teeth on them, so when I pull one, they both pop out.
