    I always find slagging on “liberal arts” as funny.

    Who do you think writes most of the books you read, or the TV or movies you watch…?
    Or does the design work of any of the media you see…?
    From advertising to concept design, cinematography to graphics.
    Or the music you listen to…?
    Or writes about the history of your world, or your country…?

    A world without art or literature would be pretty bland, wouldn’t it?

    ^^^ useless liberal arts major detected.

    Gropegrope

    Yup.
    Art history.
    And a degree in chemistry and a post grad professional degree in allied health care.
    I work in a hospital clinic and part time for a theatre company.
    It’s kind of cool to have two completely different kinds of jobs.

    So you’re half right….

    So what’s your degree in Manly…?

    TheStone

    So the art degree is still completely useless and a waste of time, but yay you took something useful – chemistry.

    rdeckard

    ^^^ no degree detected.

    I knew it! rdeckard IS gropegrope’s alt account.

    Chet Manley

    Yeah, already caught this before. “rdeckard” once posted something deliberately irreverent, and I playfully followed suit. Then “gropegrope” criticized me for doing this but didn’t call out “rdeckard” for doing the same thing.

    rdeckard

    “Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against unpleasant impulses by denying their existence in themselves, while attributing them to others.[1] For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.”

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection

    Is this the thread you are referring to?

    As you can see, you were “playfully” following suit with your “thestone” ID, not with your “fink” ID.

    TheStone

    Confirmed. rdeckard is gropegrope.

    “So the art degree is still completely useless and a waste of time, but yay you took something useful – chemistry.” Not at all. The art history and humanities I took I use every day. Watching movies, reading books, understanding what the writer or director was trying get across. It’s amazing how much more you get out of movies when you understand the how and why behind it. Watching the news and understanding history, how we got here (politically), how and why other people have different ideas and values… And it really helps when you are a set and costume… Read more »

    Denial…

    “…in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence.”

    The instance I’m referring to is gone since I was super drunk and posting a lot of nonsense. Tiki deleted all my comments for that day. But thanks for finding another example rdeckard/gropegrope. Interesting that rdeckard is the one that remembered it and not gropegrope. Very interesting…

    TheStone

    Look how close together in time rdeckard and gropegrope comment. And gropegrope did mention they had an alt at one point. Now we know what it is!

    Gropegrope

    So what are your degrees in then fellas….?
    Neither one of you answered the question.

    All of the things mentioned in the picture are useful and life enhancing to humanity. None is superior to any of the others. End of.
