While a traditional degree is virtually worthless, an online degree just shows that you masturbate a lot. Don't be such a dickhead.

Actually, I know many people getting online degrees these days--even in Asia. So, I disagree with you, Cornfed.

There are online schools from well-known universities such as Penn State, Depaul and City University of New York.
