    Bachelor's Degree

    An academic degree which typically consists of about 40 college classes in a particular field of study. Much like a startup, it is typically either undervalued (by the uneducated) or overvalued (by zealous parents) rather than being appreciated in equanimity as a testament to consistent work under an educational institution. Also known as Peter Thiel's Kryptonite

    Harold: So I see that you got a Bachelor's Degree just last year?

    Katelyn: Yes, in Electrical Engineering

    Harold: Hmm, so can you use Linux?

    Katelyn: ...

            Fracking

            Creating underground sub-communities within larger social sites (such as Reddit). Vile, nasty, unsavory and questionable content is then pumped into these underground sub-communities. The goal is to either bring legions of impressionable, immature people to their cause (such as misogyny for the purpose of taking out Hillary Clinton - much like the Tea Party's hatred of blacks), or to simply create an earthquake that brings down Internet communities. The goal here is to abuse so-called "free speech" rights to the point of destruction of the host.

            Since President Obama faced no more elections, the conservative/libertarian weirdos fracking Reddit with racism, now switched to misogyny by using Ellen Pao as a proxy for Hillary Clinton.

                                  Problem Observer

                                  A shitier version of a problem solver. A problem observer is a person who points out obstacles (even if they are incredibly obvious) offers no solution, and feels really good about themselves. They tend to end up working at a big company for the rest of their lives.

                                  Mark was a problem solver that started facebook and dropped out of Harvard. Roy was a problem observer that has a PhD from Stanford and works at Yahoo.
