have college nor graduate degrees while rationalizing that there are college & graduate degreed people who "aren't that intelligent" ?

Good answer! It is amazing how many people don't realize that... In some areas, educated idiots are in extreme abundance!
Yeah, it's important to remember that humans have managed to educate themselves and become very wise without the benefit of a formal education system. It's not the end all be all. And considering the cost and loans, I'm not sure it's worth it.
