A Mind Is a Terrible Thing To Waste

The following is a passage from an MSN article on the value of earning a bachelor's degree:

Would you ever forfeit the chance to earn $1 million? Then consider this: A bachelor's degree is worth more than $2.1 million over 40 years, compared to the $1.2 million that a high school diploma yields over that same period of time. That's more than a $1 million hike in salary over your lifetime!

Look at those numbers carefully. Then recall that this article is stressing the value of an education.

I have no words.
