This guy improperly receives a PhD from the University of Utah and fesses up in his own obituary. Utah man The article claims he used the degree to enter his chosen profession.....Engineering! "What happened was that the day I went to pay off my college student loan at the U of U, the girl working there put my receipt into the wrong stack, and two weeks later, a PhD diploma came in the mail. I didn't even graduate, I only had about 3 years of college credit. In fact, I never did even learn what the letters 'PhD' even stood for." Nice...couldn't even take the time to look up "PhD".
