It was about ten years ago, and it was my first day of chemistry class, my freshman year of college. I sat near the back of the large, stadium style lecture hall awaiting the arrival of my professor. In truth, I was a bit nervous. I had no idea what to expect. The sheer size of the classroom was intimidating (there were at least 200 kids in my lecture alone), and I was attending Purdue, a school renown for its scientific prowess. How hard would this class be? My wide eyed wonder soon evaporated when a loud, obnoxious, fat man entered the room...

I was lied to throughout my entire childhood, many, many times. In fact, my entire generation was lied to. We were told to stay in school and go to college at all costs.
