Shocking Things People Would Do to Wipe Out Student Loans
Student loans. As helpful as they are while going through school, they just suck. School isn't cheap which means, if you don't have a grant or scholarship, those loans will pile up.I would know. I'm currently in the process of paying one back myself.
Now, let me ask you this. What would you be willing to do to wipe out your student loans?
According to the 2015 Student Loan Burden Report, some people are willing to do some pretty...odd things to get rid of them. The report stated that:
- 32% would get their haircut only once a year
- 31% would be willing to eat nothing but ramen noodles
- 27% would stop shaving
- 24% would stop wearing makeup
And the one that really stumped me...11% would eat a tarantula. Yes, you read that correctly. One of these bad boys...
Like I said, I know the burden of paying back student loans. I have also seen first hand that they can cause couples to postpone marriages or buying a house or car. However, I cannot say that I would ever agree to eat strange animals, especially a tarantula. Yes, I am terrified of large spiders.
What do you think about this year's burden report for student loans? Would you agree to do any of these interesting things?
