At the University of Michigan, one college professor decided to give his students a reality check.
During his lecture, he decided to monitor the websites and activities that his students were browsing while he was attempting to get through their coursework. Every time a student was caught looking at something that wasn’t the lecture, it was recorded. At the end of the semester, this master list was put together, and college students everywhere thought it was hilarious.

Someone’s oddly specific purchase of $240 worth of turtle necks. Why?
