    And they told me being a tall, fat, left handed, duck calling, nudist caddy with a love for linguistics would never pay off.

    10. $1,000 from the Marie Simmons Scholarship for twins or those who have given birth to twins.

    "...those who have given birth to twins."

    If I`m not mistaken, college USUALLY starts at 18, right?

    Also, the ending is funny when it says "super special secret."

    Yeah, mental_floss always says that. Kinda doesn`t make it too secret after awhile.

    Heh, Klingon scholarship for linguists. Makes sense.

    *goes and applies for the nudist scholarship*

    It`s a good thing me and my twin are fat, nudist, left-handed dwarves who caddie during the week, duck call on the weekends, and go to the occasional Klingon convention. Up until now, life has been really rough on us.

    Might go for the Ayn Rand scholarship. Just do a nice breakdown of the book using the game "Bioshock" (the game`s story and characters are very influenced by the Ayn Rand book).

    Anyone who`s been tortured by Atlas Shrugged or any of her other fiction books should get $10,000. Don`t get me wrong I think her philosophy is good, but she has got to be one of the most terrible writers I have ever encountered (sans Anne Dillard, of course).
