    would be a useful skill... as opposed to lashing out irrationally

    Luckily for you there's tons of options outside of traditional education. It is REALLY hard to get a job without a diploma of some sort.. at least, a job that isn't kicking shit around and breaking your back. It isn't like good uneducated jobs don't exist, but they're hard to find for sure.. mostly because uneducated people already swiped them.

    Have you maybe thought about just going for a GED? They aren't super hard to obtain, and no one really cares in America anymore whether you got a diploma or a GED later on. I know a ton of high school drop outs that are in management positions doing a job they genuinely like and care about with great benefits. The Railroad, UPS, and Costco are some examples of companies actual people I know without a diploma are excelling at just fine.

    of course, I have 3 degrees and actually have more fun doing what I'm doing and running my hobbies on the side than I ever did in the white collar world when I had no time for my mental (and physical) hobbies
    The problem with this trend is that it is depreciating the value of the degrees themselves in the workplace. It's better socially speaking to have more educated people no matter what, but speaking in terms of jobs degrees influence a lot more than I feel they should, especially for entry level jobs. Employers make their simple jobs sound way bigger than they really are. Now-a-days you almost need to be a career student to get the pick of the litter.
