    My major was Chem Eng, so obviously I'm way above such petty p*****g contests :-P

    I take it yours was Anistronomy?

    Music Performance major with an uncompleted minor in Pseudoscience. Anistronomy is a hobby.

    Econ and Philosophy > Engineering? Really? Seems a bit hard to believe.

    Incredible isn't it? Ever heard an imaginative, coherent argument come out of an accountant? It's like having a conversation with gravel.

    Maybe those majors are just good at taking tests?

    Then again, I've seen other studies that had engineers on top.
    The smartest man I ever knew was an engineer by profession, but was a former physics prof. at the
    U on Minn. He specialized in semi-conductor physics.

    The guy could carry on a college level discussion on about any topic you would bring up, science, math,
    politics, music, history, it was just unbelievable. I worked for him for 5 years and learned a lot.
    He also knew a lot of great off-color jokes.

    I say don't go.

    Careful use of the ignore feature will go a long way.

    If you couldn't see the posts that made you angry the thread would have had a much different feel.

    I didn't see them and I thought things were progressing quite well.

    I think the challenge that Pop's often faces is that he's able to approach things from many different angles. Buzzing is just one of the tools he uses to help people through individual hurdles. Unfortunately there are people who focus one one point or another that Pop's demonstrates and then they attack him as a whole.

    Well, I know the "pencil exercise" was a waste of time for me - it only made my face hurt, so I wouldn't
    suggest it to anyone. But, hey if it works for others, great.
