    I think at least a minor in philosophy could do a lot of people a lot of good.

        Having looked for jobs in the last 10 years I would say it's extremely important. If you want to work for yourself, then no, but otherwise they are fairly necessary. Trade schools are also a good option.

          A Degree in Philosophy is also know as a degree in sophistry or bloviating. This degree will get you a job taking out the trash or flipping burgers.

            Agriculture: It still being handed out, but how many jobs are there in agriculture? Shoveling horse doodies at a mom and pop farm, otherwise go work at Godfather's Pizza.

            Fashion Design. It is a profession that is very exclusive and competitive. Very few break into this profession. Job you can expect with this one. J. C. Penny's stocking the clothing department.

            Fine Arts: It has no relationship with the real world out there. It will not put money in your wallet or food on the table. Expect to be flipping burgers for a living.

            Art History: Another fluff degree that is as worthless as a wart.

            Women's studies: Fine fertilizer for your backyard but it will not impress an employer. He'll put a clothespin on his nose.

            Performing arts: AKA acting degree. This one equals working at McDonalds.
            As a guy with a generic History degree (ugh) it's just as bad.

              We all know medical professionals and lawyers and judges need degrees, but how many people make the big bucks without college degrees?

                  History is good to read when you are old. I read about 400 books on History
                  So, what?

                  believe it!

                    Having said that, a little knowledge is only dangerous when used unwisely, which speaks more to little wisdom than to little knowledge.

                      Good for what? To ponder why you spent money on nothing?
