Me too, as I went to community college... for like 8 years. I had to visit my friend at OSU to party. He's a doctor now.

If you're more interested in knowledge then you'd stay home (or visit a library) and just study on your own. Plenty of lectures are available online for free, and you can Google nearly anything.

College has the advantage of offering labs, and of course as you alluded to, the coveted paper which presumably implies a person has some minimum knowledge and competency in a field of study.

KSA is right though that the motivation is generally to gain an advantage. Really, our motivation to do just about anything is to advantage our current situation. If I wash the dishes, I have the advantage of being less likely to get ill from spoiled food.

The 3 categories of action seem to be to either gain an advantage, rest, or be entertained.
