Mayim Bialik is Almost a PhD

A great way to kill a few minutes for me this morning was to spin through Mental Floss’s recap of what degrees celebrities earned in college. Good stuff here. Obviously one that surprised me was that TV’s Blossom has just about earned her PhD in neuroscience at UCLA (holy crap.)

Also of note:

  • Brian May – you know, from a little band called Queen – has a PhD in astronomy.
  • Mira Sorvino studied East Asian Studies at Harvard.
  • “Weird Al” Yankovic has an Architecture degree.
  • And naturally, Fred Savage has an English degree. Useful when you’re directing crappy movies.

Architecture? I would have never guessed that. Ever.

Not to mention she’s a brilliant mathematician, Danica McKellar is just as stunning as ever.

Man, Fred Savage must be kicking himself.

As Joey Russo would say: “Whoa!”

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
