2016 has been a crazy year. You may think you have seen it all this year, but this survey just about takes the cake. Student Loan Report surveyed 500 graduated student borrowers to find out what crazy things graduates would do to free themselves from the weight of student debt.

It’s no secret that student loans weigh heavily on the backs of many millennials. I’m sure many recent graduates would gladly do something crazy to get rid of student debt – and I don’t blame them.

According to Student Loan Report, “69% of graduates leave campus with student debt. And on average, borrowers are asked to repay about $28,000 in student debt, before interest. As a whole, there are now more than 43 million Americans working to repay an estimated $1.3 trillion in student debt… Student loan debt is causing 63% of debtors to delay buying a house, 73% of debtors to put off saving for retirement, 28% of debtors to put off marriage, and 34% of debtors to put off starting a family.”

With that being said, take a look at the 15 crazy things graduates would do for student loan debt forgiveness.

–  46% of borrowers would give up all forms of contraception (condoms, birth control, etc.) for life, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  52% of borrowers would leak and amateur sex tape of themselves, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  66% of borrowers would fight Conor McGregor for 5 minutes, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  75% of borrowers wouldn’t bring Harambe back to life, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  58% of borrowers would give Donald Trump a hand job, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  41% of borrowers would drink Brazilian tap water for a full year, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  22% of borrowers would spend two full years in federal prison, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  26% of borrowers would live the rest of their life with a burnt tongue, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  37% of borrowers would give up one breast (females) or one testicle (males), if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  52% of borrowers would contract a peanut allergy for life, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  26% of borrowers would live homeless on the streets of NYC for one year, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  55% of borrowers would break up with their significant other, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  76% of borrowers would vote for Gary Johnson for President, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

–  33% of borrowers would move to Aleppo in Syria for 6 months, if it meant that they would have no more student loan debt.

Breaking up with your significant other (sorry, babe), spending two years in federal prison (have you even seen OITNB??), or naming your firstborn child “Donald Trump” (seriously…)  are some pretty far-out ideas. Unfortunately, none of these options are available – but this crazy year isn’t over yet. So good luck to all you graduates, and future graduates, I hope you can find an option that fits you.
