go ahead and read from the Emma Thompson entry hanggang sa comments. they just made me laugh.
Guy: Yeah, it’s nice that they have degrees, but the literature courses are the kind in which you could manage to have a fair mark by writing bulls*it on the exams and by renting out the movies instead of reading the assigned books. As long as you are a native English speaker and you have a good intuition for spelling, you’re good to go. Plenty of slow-witted people get through university fine (usually not in science or engineering) and plenty of intelligent people just don’t make university a priority (unfortunately for many).
Engineer: I got an english degree while I was studying mechanical engineering because it was just too damn easy. I could take a couple english classes and pretend to pay attention and get another degree. If it weren’t for all us genius engineers, you’d be sitting in a cardboard box in the middle of an empty field playing with yourself. What has reading all those books and studying the song of words done for you? Not a damn thing.
