"Which'll it be, bub? Step on a lego or sharpened bamboo?"

When I described the grass-eater phenomenon to my Dad, he said that if he hadn't gone to college in a STEM major, he'd have been drafted to fight in Korea. I don't think that sort of motivation would work today for several reasons.

In those days, girls didn't put out unless you married them, you had to have a job to marry them, and employers didn't hire draft-dodgers. Today there's no correlation between a man's employability and his sex appeal -- if anything, there's a negative correlation.
