One of the guys in The Offspring has a degree in Chemistry or Physics I think, and Jake Bannon from Converge has a degree in art of some form (I think it's either graphic design or Fine Art).

No. Everybody dies. And one day, given that your relationship doesn't crash and burn like so many do, one of you will end up deep in sorrow while watching the other one die.

no, that's not why I made mistakes, I just type quickly and I didn't pay attention to/check for spelling.

Ok people, stop nitpicking the guy's spelling. Let's keep this potentially interesting thread on topic.

But i'm pretty sure all 4 of the members of Queen have degrees or something dont they?


Same here

I believe John Deacon has a qualification in engineering or something and Roger Taylor dropped out of med school when Queen hit off

I think it's actually Astrophysicist.... An Astrophysician would be like someone who goes into outer space and gives aliens physicals.

I think you have it the wrong way round. Johnny Greenwood is a resident composer and conductor for the BBC. Thats a pretty serious job if you ask me.

I said nothing about jobs, I said degrees. I was fully aware that Jonny (note the lack of an 'h' well, my boy) is the resident composer for the BBC.
