[quote]I didn't know I was supposed to give them more money. Will they give me another degree?[/quote]

UC Berkeley: 3.3 billion
Michigan: 9.47 billion

This set of beliefs has very ill-defined borders, but basically places the individual at the center of a nebulous belief system. it has no practical application or real substance.
