That explains those socialist views--classic case of a have-not sour grapes/grapes of wrath :approve: And to the last poster, no doubt. When I wanted advice on how to get an experiment done, first guy I talked with was our resident machinest who didn't even have a BS...but aptitude and imagination up the wazoo, plus the skills to actually build a working proto.
Not really, being poor explains that, and I am studying for a physics degree, I'm not a socialist, it's just that being liberal in England is practically akin to communism in the US, you don't have a political spectrum more of a political wing :biggrin:.

Sour grapes :confused: what gave you that impression? I'm a little offended by that I'll have to be honest, what gives you that impression? Do you think I'm wondering around going, damn literati, must be less like prole, and working my day around how I can get an edge on the more eductated? Because let me assure you I'm not? I'm like this with everyone; poor or rich, smart or stupid, ignorant or wise,educated or educationless lol I just can't resist poking fun at the foibles of people, it's ingrained in my culture I'm afraid :tongue2::smile:

Obviously the irony was a bit lost on some people. Me a socialist :rofl: yeah right. I don't even like labour that much and there allegedly left wing. You crazy Yanks crease me up with your partisan politics :tongue:

I have never cared for titles, ranks, labels, . . . :yuck:
Yeah like Dr.:wink::smile:

Don't worry I was just taking the P.

You'll find that most of the people here with PhDs don't really flaunt it, so might not reply to this thread. That's not what we're here for. (I'm just one of the shameless ones.)
I'm waiting for the how many publications (if>0.3) do you have thread :tongue:

starting 6 days early is way above average. you are a good guy. the student will appreciate any comments you are able to generate, no matter how hard it is to do so.

most people just walk in the oral and pass the guy, leaving all review to the advisor.
The last time I examined a PhD student, I managed to make her cry. I still passed her though.

This one I am reading now looks fine.

Man I was just teasing/using irony as in anyone who doesn't like the status quo is .... Sorry if it went taken the wrong way.

You wanna try using :wink: smillies then, sounded to me like you were serious. On the other hand you could just make what you say utterly absurd as in my first instant.:smile:

My mistake, probably something to do with me being a peon/prole :smile:

To my way of thinking it was utterly absurd...and I tried using a smilie, just one of those things that went sideways on the net as they occasionally do.

Aye no harm no foul, obviously. Forget about it.

Oh my.

Is that YOU, Arun? This is Mr. X. :tongue:
Well you're Indian, so clearly I must know you from somewhere. No doubt you've heard one of my many pronouncements that "I have a degree in physics!" Just think how much a PhD would inflate my ego!

To vary the question a little, does anyone have a PhD but no Masters? If so, why did you skip the Master?

I do not have any education past year 10 or 15 years of age,I am not proud of it.I am limited by a lack of Mathematics and many other things,I can only try and think about things without being able to prove anything.Thats what I love about this forum I can see what you people who have put in the hard yards are thinking :confused:
