So my wife and I are watching American Idol and a commercial is shown for a Kaplan University. The odd thing is some of the commercial is shot on the campus of University of Southern California (USC)

Stock footage!

I was leafing through a local magazine the other day and I noticed there were two ads for two different local (competing) pizzerias on facing pages. Both of the ads included a photo of a large spread of pizza, wings, salads, pastas, etc; but the funny part is that both ads used the same photo.

Its unclear if a online university degree is worth more than the electrons that were destroyed earning it.
