See the dude in the back left corner? That’s Monash - Australia’s Tony Stark.
Before he was knighted, or became general of the Australian forces in WW1, or helped build Princes Bridge, or helped connect Victoria’s power grid, or fought for workers rights, he went to university AT SIXTEEN. He completed THREE masters - arts, engineering, and law.
