Default What Exactly Is a Doctorate?

I have to share this. It is very funny.

What Exactly Is a Doctorate?

Ever wondered what getting a doctorate really means? Matt Might, professor of Computer Science at the University of Utah, explains it perfectly in this graphic presentation that starts with a simple circle.โ€”JD
Every fall, I explain to a fresh batch of Ph.D. students what a Ph.D. is.
It's hard to describe it in words.
So, I use pictures.
Read below for the illustrated guide to a Ph.D.

After you gain the doctorate you also have something with which to impress the impressionable.

Hmmm it was explained to me this way: I'm not sure is the rest of the world outside of Canada uses these acronyms.....and please don't take offense; just goofing around.

We all know what a B.S. is (... think beyond the obvious Bachelor of Science)
Then M.S. is More of the Same.
PhD is Piled Higher and Deeper.

Heh! As a degree-less person I find those quite amusing.

Almost everyone here is. Every time you find a large prime or even complete an LLR test, you're adding to the sum of human knowledge. The value of that knowledge, however, is questionable.
