“The only thing to do, then, is entirely decouple the Humanities from reason and evidence.”

Grade Grubbers

It’s pretty simple, actually.  As one only gets tenure by publishing, and since only original “research” gets published, the Humanities would cease to exist if their professors confined themselves to things like “evidence” and “reason.”  Shakespeare, after all, isn’t around to write any more sonnets, and we’ve long ago examined all probable causes of big historical events like the Civil War.  The only thing to do, then, is entirely decouple the Humanities from reason and evidence.  This is Postmodernism, and it’s so successful because it starts with an impossibility — it’s a fact, the PoMos declare, that there’s no such thing as a fact.

“Search your feelings. You know it to be true.”

    About one-third of respondents between ages 18 and 34 say they might postpone marriage — or have already done so — until student debt is paid off, according to the study, which surveyed 1,037 U.S. adults who attended college. The study was given to USA TODAY exclusively.

    That number shrank among older respondents. About 17% of those between 35 and 54 would postpone marriage and 10% of those 55 and older would delay it.

    Debt also affected partner choices.

    A separate study shows that more than 50% of dating millennials don’t want to marry until their finances are in order, according to a recent survey from Credit Karma. Almost two-thirds of those surveyed millennials who were in a relationship have a separate bank account from their significant other. And nearly one-third say that keeping at least one bank account separate from their partner’s helps keep their relationship alive.

    When you view this above .. it means something different depending on if you read it from a man or woman’s perspective.

    Borrowers of all ages currently owe roughly $1.5 trillion in student loans, according to the Brookings Institution. About 42 million Americans have student loans, which are the second-largest portion of household debt after mortgages.

    LendKey’s survey also found a lack of financial literacy around student loans. Just 16% of respondents between 18-34 say they have “shopped around” for the best rate and terms for a student loan. By contrast, two-thirds overall shopped for the best rates and terms for cars, 60% for insurance and 57% for vacations.

    The data suggests that students need a greater understanding of the loan process, says Passione of LendKey.

    The data shows Malice preying on Stupid!

    Summary .. SMH!
