The Philosopy Degree Dilemma

“What can I do with a degree in philosophy?” — Crooked Timber

Well, you can do what I do: roll your eyes when people who think they know what "ad hominem" means (but don't) accuse you of making a fallacious argument (when you're not) because they can't distinguish premises from conclusions in an ordinary language discussion. Then, wish you'd studied to become a dentist and wealthy so, instead of arguing with libertarian crypto-fascists on the internet about the journalistic integrity of Fox News reporters, you could go to the movies for entertainment any time you wanted. *Kicks self*
