My Thinking Cap Must Be Broken

As the mornings appear more and more frozen in nature, it was only a matter of time until the Spring Penn State Tuition Bills came.  Sure enough, the emails have flooded in this AM to all my various accounts.  Now that bills come mostly in the parent's name, I get to relive those glorious days again like in 1977.  But back then the $333 ($500/semester) or so* tuition per term barely fazed me, even though they were in my name.  Now it's $6,359 per semester.  And it's the government that you have to pay back at more interest than there should be! 

But then our thoughts invariably turn to academics, and in my case Physics.

*I think tuition was actually $750 for my first year of college.
