MIT Now Offers a Poker Degree?

The teacher asked one of her young students if he knew his numbers.
"Yes," he said. "I do. My father taught me."
"Good. What comes after three?"
"Four," answers the boy.
"What comes after six?"
"Very good," says the teacher. "Your dad did a good job. What comes after ten?"
"A jack," says the little boy.

After speaking with several friends and co-workers, I know I am not alone in feeling that the whole poker craze is out of control. It will continue to grow as people continue to search for alternate means of gaining wealth. We put so much pressure on ourselves to attain the trappings of status. Somebody claims that MIT now offers a degree in poker.
