Two of my kids asked me how long I studied to become an actuary. When I said "30 years", they objected, "No, not how old, how many years?" I explained that 12 years of public school, 5+ college, and 12+ actuarial exams added up to about 30.

Maybe I overstated my case. Those two avoided college, barely finished high school. They didn't like math to begin with.
