5 Random College Related Facts

  1. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

  2. 9 US Presidents never attended college. 25 were [sorta] lawyers - some never quite finished law school (Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Harry Truman). James Garfield was actually shot dead by a lawyer (and I thought it was usually the other way round...).

  3. In the US, the average annual wage for someone with an advanced degree is $74,602, bachelors degree; $51,206, high school diploma; $27,915, without a high school diploma; $18,734. (students within 'the Humanities' (read: Development Studies and the like) end up at the lowest end of the scale. People who study poor people are poor.... that kinda makes sense.)

  4. 27% of U.S. male college students believe life is "A meaningless existential hell."

  5. On average, 100 people choke to death on a ball point pen per year. (and that has nothing whatsoever to do with #4!)
