Procrastination, the newest method implemented in order to delay the inevitable. Maybe we should all take a lesson from this guy?

just goes to show you that when they say 2 year degree, even though it takes 80 years all you get is a 2 year degree. Its impossible to get some of these 2 yyear degrees.

I say good for him! I've not quite finished mine either, but it's on my list. Goes to show it's never too late to fulfill a goal.

Maybe instead of an example of procrastination it's an example of persistence. Just saying.

Better late than never. It's still an accomplishment especially if he had to work to survive instead of go to school.
