Latest Blog: Political Science
4/23/2012 at 9:29 pm
There are those that would call my college diploma a "waste of an already
crappy piece of paper."
Those same folks may not hesitate to blow their nose on this crappy paper,
smearing my immensely respectable degree in political science.
At this moment, I am those folks.
Long before the degree and the creation of this incredible blog, it is worth
noting that I was once a lowly student paying his dues. Upon sorting through
old paperwork, I was reminded today of just how hard I worked for my degree.
Here is an actual transcript of a writing assignment I saved from the shredder
this evening. None of this has been edited from the original, but I think you'll
find the grammar to be every bit as exceptional as my current style of writing:
Is political science a science?
Sure it is! So what if most people would call political scientists quacks?
As far as I'm concerned, just sitting in class and using the phrase, "political
science" makes us all scientists. Why, if I were a physicist, I wouldn't
be insulted in the least by the pseudo-scientific jargon used by those who would
study ridiculous things like voting behavior.
Anyone who says otherwise is quite obviously out of his or her mind, especially
those so called "social" scientists who think that we're studying
the same thing as them. What do they know?!? They think they're al special with
those hard facts and data that won't change from election year to election ear.
Well I say, "bite me." Because I'm learning to be a scientist, and
I won't let things like hard data, the scientific method, or anything else that
would make me the least bit credible get in my way.
I think it's worth noting, that I received a "B" on this assignment.
Jeff's moral for the day: Even the most worthless degree looks good
on a resume… just don't call too much attention to it.
