So I was talking to someone at the university I attend the other day. The person in question was recently granted his Ph.D.
To celebrate, he and his friends went for a few drinks down the pub. One of his friends' girlfriend asked him in what field he had become a doctor. He told her that his Ph.D was in astrophysics.
She responded with "Really? What's my star sign then?"
At times like this I weep for humanity.
