And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

1/10 celebrity crushes - Thomas Brodie-Sangster

There are such kids - indigo children. A strange new generation that appeared at the turn of the millenium. The children that came from the skies, born by wise people, out of stereotypes. They know everything about themselves and they know their destiny. People often tell me that I’m somewhat different and my mum makes up some funny terms to describe me - she takes them from books and TV shows. She says I’m not from this world. I don’t know what world I came from, but I know for sure what I want.
