ONCE AGAIN, SCIENCE PROVES YOUR PROFESSOR HAS BEEN RIGHT ALL ALONG You think that your girl "loves" you or that she thinks you're a "stud", and because of this, you're thinking about giving her what she wants: a wedding ring.

This is the story from which Tom reads during this episode.

WHAT? MILLENNIALS "CAN'T AFFORD LOVE"? A listener saw this story in USA Today and it blew Your Professor's mind.
