Apparently, if I sold all of my Mario stuff, I'd be able to pay for both my college debt and my son's future debt.

But anyone can have debt, how many people can have a Super Mario Warp Phone?!

Yep! I have the bottom one and a Mario Kart 64 one.

Both still work, surprisingly.

In case anyone missed it:  http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/state-of-the-union-2015-obama-plans-to-lower-cost-of-community-college-to-zero/

I know this doesn't help anyone with current college debt, but the future may be brighter...

At the risk of sounding like I was born in le wrong generation, I sure do feel unlucky being born in 1998 and having to deal with all this student loan debt and college stuff. It seems to me like the people born ten years before I was had/have it a lot more fortunately when it comes to "the next step" after high school. I don't know about you folks, but I'm certain that I'm completely stump ****ed unless I go to college, which, by the way, I have very little chance of being able to afford unless I take out loans that'll have me in debt for like a decade after college.

I plan on getting a job a few months after graduating senior year, then holding that job (or any other one) until I'm about 20, at which point I can finally start college and hopefully get some bull[dukar] degree I can use to squeeze my way into a decent-paying job, so that I can live the American Dream.
Relics.

Wrong generation and/or wrong country.
