When did college get so expensive?
I knew that gaining an education was expensive but to one girl apparently it cost her the most valuable thing she owned; her virginity. There is a student who needed to find a way to pay for her schooling. Some go for grants, loans, scholarships, she decided to auction her virginity off to the highest bidder. This transaction is to take place at the Bunny Ranch in Nevada where prostitution is legal. Latest number was that she was going to get 3.7 million dollars. I thought we were in a slow time economically, but it appears as if some people are pretty slow in other area's as well. If I find out that bid came from an AIG exec's bailout bonus I will be upset.
Two other points of interest, the girl is going to school for marriage and family therapy. Great start. Second, it appears as if she has a sister who paid for her schooling through prostitution through the same facility and gave her sister the suggestion of the auction in the first place. The first sister probably got a good bit less than 3.7 million, and I wonder if that therapy training will go to immediate use with her sister's, almost certain to develop, inferiority complex. I bet their parents are so proud. Perhaps a good path to avoiding such temptation is to employ a good savings plan. That and teaching righteous principles when they are young. Of course, there is no absolute surety that you won't parent the most profitable virgin on the planet, but the chances would be diminished significantly.
Glenn Beck had an interview that you can read or hear at this link. It is quite revealing.
