In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.

Digiorno’s floor pizza
Last night my brother, in a less than sober state, accidentally dropped a whole fresh out of the oven frozen Digiorno’s pizza on the floor…top down. We made another pizza, and all was well. (Also, we ate the floor pizza while waited…)
Later, while I slept, I dreamed that my brothers and I were eating pizza and talking about how amazing and flaky the crust was. And how we’d never had such great pizza. At that point the girl who had made the pizza told us we were retarded and knew nothing because it was frozen pizza…Digiorno’s. I found this dream awful since it’s basically how every Digiorno’s commercial plays out.
