So a friend mentioned today that her child who is like 6 years old or so was being chased by little girls and she found herself offering this advice to the child, "Run, don’t stop till you’re 30 and have a Master’s degree!"

That advice made me wonder..... and so I responded....

have you seen idiocracy, the movie? They make a point in the movie to suggest that 'educated' people encourage their kids to get married after an education and not reproduce until then and 'uneducated' people don't offer that advice. Over the course of a 1000 years, there are no longer educated people because we got beat in the reproduction race and there is only 'idiots' around, much because of the offering of that advice. Now I'm with you on the whole not getting married and having kids until after an education (and added time for vacations and such), but it makes me wonder.... Are we really helping our kids AND Mankind with that advice? LOL

Hmm well I have a baby but am still in school, working on a degree-Hell, I was right back in class 2 days after I had her. I guess it all really depends on how much we push our kids to succeed in life-
