Taylor Swift

Beer-Bottle-Throwing Scofflaws

Are WAY Smarter than You

EXCLUSIVE

The drunken 'hooligans' who got arrested after throwing beer bottles at Taylor Swift's Rhode Island mansion are anything but slackers ... they are heroes and brainiacs who could shame anyone in an SAT face-off.

You'll recall, the trio was busted when they allegedly flipped off Taylor's security guards after hurling the brewski bottles.

So check out the ne'er-do-wells.

-- Tristan Kading, 28, a master of science in chemical oceanography conferred by MIT.  He also received the Richard Montgomery Award for Achievement in Mathematics.

-- Emily Kading, 26, Nuclear Scientist specializing in agriculture and natural resources.  She's studying to be a nuclear physicist.

As for Michael Horrigan -- the 29-year-old was working on a ferry crew on the Long Island Sound last May with Tristan ... when a 12-year-old girl's canoe capsized. Both guys helped pull her to safety, and got citations from Connecticut for heroism.

They just pled not guilty to disorderly conduct.

Big f*cking deal! A monkey could get a degree. All you have to be able to do is sit through classes. Paper diplomas mean nothing in this world. Its what you do with your intelligence that means everything.

Emily looks to be one very pretty young lady. Let's see more of her, TMZ. As for the charges: nothing like being drunk to make smart people do stupid things.

An education absolutely does mean something in today's world. However, stupidity still exists and social media loves to make it worse. Unfortunately, if I was looking at offering one of these individuals a job with their MIT and Nuclear Science education - I wouldn't. The bigger question is what are these almost 30 somethings doing at a Taylor Swift party???

Just goes to show that just because you have book smarts doesn't mean you have any common sense.

These are people who deserve the benefit of the doubt, and leniency in these types of matters. Not idiotic, useless celebrity ass holes...
