"Masters in Graffiti Art"

Honest to f#cking Christ.

I mean, seriously, when does this country wake up and admit there's a bubble?

Can't even make this stuff up if I tried.

I had to laugh at this.

"In 2008, the average annual salary for fine artists hovered around $42,650."

Color me skeptical.

What happened to degrees like chemical engineering or medicine?

The higher education system is clearly out of control.

Wow! That may even top the masters degree in puppetry.
I do not have the words to respond to such insanity.

They might as well just go all the way and start offering a "Master's in Student Loan Debt" and an MBA in Unemployability.

Admitting to an education bubble is admitting there aren't "better jobs" waiting for graduates to fill them.

When does the denial phase end? Not before November, that's for sure.

A new theory is needed to really tell us what's going on in the US economy. Quantity, quality, variety and convenience in one equation. Don't forget a scale that can measure utility across generations. Alex Gheg will show you how it's done.

Yes. Taco Bell.

"Some historians actually argue that the first instances of graffiti were cave paintings made by prehistoric man. "
That is sufficient to realize the author of the piece is an uneducated fool.

At least if they got a Masters in Basket Weaving they could make something useful.
