    Its harder to pass off that degree now.....

    Bad News For those out there that were thinking about sending off a $500 check for your Ph.D., you will now find it more difficult to pretend that its a real degree:

    http://www.ope.ed.gov/accreditation/

    So much for my plans on getting a Ph.D. in Difficult Sciences from Bill's Mothers Basement College in Fargo North Dakota This link will allow anyone to check on the status of your diploma.....

    6,900 accredited institutions in the US??? 6,901 after H founds a new University after graduation....right

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Apparently a school only needs to be accredited by some association of schools or what not. The beauty schools are accredited by an association fo beauty schools, which certainly wouldn't be the same association that credits the University of Michigan.
