Replace smarts with intelligence.

If it's a psychology degree you could add Employability + .0000000001.

Re: Level Up!


all of this is true. although I would say stamina -50 or something, especially for those of us who live off of coffee.

Thanks!

not too sure what this means. It's missing a comma? If so, I put it in originally, but I didn't like the break in the word.

You should totally start liking them!
-40000 might have been funnier and I thought about going higher. 20,000 is around what I had, and it is the national average of student debt.

I had originally put "intelligence", but it was a little too long of a word. It didn't really sit well on the shirt.

Oh, snap!

I had thought about putting another gag in the shirt like "smarts: -10" but I wanted the gold to be the punch-line. Thanks for the suggestion, though!

an extra 0 so it's -200,000, which may well be true for many people.

LOVE this shirt! I hope it makes it to the top ... I have a son in college who changed degrees this year (thus more time in college) ... so this really applies! Good luck!

This is my FIRST time to the derby ... but I'm a regular shirt woot purchaser.

Really beautiful shirt. 'Smarts' does seem a bit out of place. If 'intelligence' is too long, 'constitution' could replace 'stamina' to balance it out

Also sad to see no reference to EXP!

Depending on what that degree is in, it is entirely possible (if not more likely than not) that our plucky graduate has earned next to nothing useful in the realm of EXP.

Intelligence is too long, try Intellect.

I went out of state for my degree, was reclassified as in-state after one year, and I would have killed to only be at -20000 (highly doubt national average is 20K as most schools, per semester, are 5-10K). Should be more like -100000

ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!

How is everyone figuring 20,000 to 200,000 gold for college? Assuming a gold coin would be about 8 grams (Not unreasonable for a coin), 20,000 would be worth about $8 million. Even if they were incredibly light at only 1g (Which seems unlikely since they'd be so easy to lose), it would still be $1 million. I know higher education costs are rising at unreal rates, but if you're paying that much, you (or your kid or whatever) need to stop being a professional student and get out in the work force.
