Wait. What? WHAT? What? What? What? (I've gone off the deep end, get me to Bellevue) WHAT?

101 MILLION DOLLARS? That's like a million per dalmatian.

That. Doesn't. Even. Make. Sense.

Engineering has always been the one major with a good payout. If only I had been good in maths...sigh.

Me to. I done good in English. No money in it, tho.

Yet my differential aptitude test in HS suggested I be a rocket scientist. Yeah. Right. Is there a job for 'good test taker'?

That was very enlightening. I wish there was something like this for master's degrees.

It seems like every time you get another degree your income goes down.

Please stop now, for a breather.

Higher education (degrees) may be just union cards for some,
but it can be so much more... leading to a life with more interests
and appreciation of things, other than the "job".

OMG, but I hated it when my folks sat around the dinner table,
and bitched about their "jobs". Who said what... What was said back.

My folks encouraged me to go on to college, and then through grad school, and then post-doc.
By then, my HS friends were in jobs, had families, and had "things".

While in college, I was jealous and frustrated. It took several years
to catch up on the $, but I believe my life and my family's life were
so much better due to time in college and university.
And, I enjoyed my career... a lot.

Debt is one thing, but it's not irreversible.
Earning a living is necessary, but it's not sufficient.

If you add the three red ones together from slide 2 (all cell phone related) it totals up to about 400,000 and the second deadliest cause behind inattention.
