Flipping burgers is no longer a job for anyone. Now you need a university degree! 


No, that’s not a peek into the sad future of the job market. It also not the secret name used by ranchers to talk about the slaughterhouse in the presence of the cows.

Coming up next is a school that will make you develop trust issues.
